25 Positive Affirmations to Say Every day (and Change Your Life)

I used to think affirmations were frivolous words.

Since I’ve immersed myself in personal growth, though, I’ve learned how ignorant I had been.

In fact, embracing personal growth and self-improvement has been a game-changer for me.

When I stumbled upon world-renowned therapist Marisa Peer’s TED talk, I was completely sold!

She’s an advocate of using powerful affirmations to rewire our brains and unlock our true potential.

Her TED talk was enlightening and very informative about how our mind and brain work and how we can rewire them.

If you don’t have enough time or patience to read through this post, please do yourself one massive favour and watch her TED talk.

To reach beyond your limits by training your mind | Marisa Peer | TEDxKCS

She says:

The way you feel about everything all the time is down to two things. The pictures in your head and the words you say to yourself.

I’ve come across many successful people talking about “pictures in our heads” and “the stories we tell ourselves.”

The more I read about it, the more it made sense.

Every one of us is born equal as a human.

That’s as equal as we can get.

From then on, all bets are off.

We’re left at the mercy of our environments: our parents, relatives, social circles, and socioeconomic status.

The collective experiences from the environments shape us into our present selves.

By the time we start making our own decisions, we do almost everything based on what we learned as children.

Decide to Put Different Pictures

Imagine growing up being told “stupid” or “not going to amount to anything” all the time.

It would be incredibly hard to rewire our brains to say:

I’m amazing. I’m good enough.

But it’s not impossible.

By using affirmations like these, we can believe in ourselves and start making positive changes.

My humble wish with this post is that, through watching the above TED talk or reading this blog, today is the day you DECIDE to change the story you tell yourself.

Below are 25 life-changing positive affirmations that can help you start your new story.

Let’s plant new seeds today by putting different pictures in our minds.

Start telling the story we want to tell ourselves instead of what others insist on.

? Since this post, I’ve read a life-altering book called What to Say When You Talk to Yourself by Dr. Shad Helmstetter. Among many other things, I learned 16 wonderful self-talks from the book. You can read them here.

Choose to Admire Ourselves

I’m sure you have someone you admire, whether in person or online.

Admiring someone is a choice.

That means you have the choice to admire yourself as well!

I’m sure you’ve said something along the lines of:

Wow, she’s amazing.

Well, we can choose to say the same thing about ourselves, right?

I’m amazing.

I encourage you to admire yourself as much as you admire your heroes and mentors, if not more. 

Practising self-acceptance and using positive affirmations can help you do just that!

Repeating any of the below 25 positive affirmations every day will help you write a new story and create your own bestseller that you’ll never get tired of reading.
