Affirmations – Change Your Mind, One Day at a Time

We are bombarded by messages all day long - from advertising and marketing, from conversations with our fellow human beings, or just the stream of thoughts running through our own heads. I believe that you can turn a negative thought habit into a positive one using affirmations. 

The word affirmation comes from the root Latin word affirmare, which means "to make steady, strengthen, confirm." Using affirmations can help you reinforce positive aspects of your personality and your being and help to transform your life. Saying them aloud, hearing then in your own voice is a fantastic way to start rewiring your brain, generating positive emotions, and increasing the number of feel-good hormones in your system. 

Check out the affirmations below, and when you find one that resonates with you, begin a practice of saying it out loud several times a day - start your day on a positive note, and end it that way, too, by saying the affirmation before you go to sleep. After 21 to 28 days of consistent positive reinforcement, you will feel better, have a more positive outlook, and a new, positive habit you can keep for a lifetime!


Every day I learn something new from a diverse array of sources. My wisdom grows when I open myself up to the lessons all around me.


My path in life is clearer when I maintain an inner spiritual connection.


Fortunately, it can be easier than you think to find a source of inspiration that will motivate you and keep you on the right path toward your goals.


My soul deserves nourishment because it keeps me grounded through challenging times.


My integrity is tested when my back is against the wall and I always come out victorious.


Dreams can be powerful messages about problems or stresses in your life. If you have regular dreams about the same situation over and over, being trapped or running late or being shamed in public, your subconscious is trying to tell you something – and you should listen.
