Ironically, we are practicing affirmations every day. But, for most people it is negative affirmations we are telling ourselves-

Things like-

“I couldn’t do that”

“Nothing ever goes my way”

“I have nothing”

“I’m never going to be happy”

 Where do I start?


The purpose of positive affirmations is to eventually replace all negative thoughts and self-talk and beliefs with positive ones. In order to do this, you need to do it daily. You need to get a steady flow of the energy and life you wish to create in your subconscious.

Start with these simple steps-

  1. Start in the present tense
  2. Start with “I am”
  3. Keep it positive
  4. Make them only for yourself
  5. Use one emotional word


I am loved

I am happy

I am excited to have my dream job

I am proud of my life

I am enough

Remember to do them daily. Try to repeat them out loud with enthusiasm. Try to say them in the morning when you wake and right before you sleep.
