Positive affirmations release you from anxiety, negativity, guilt, fear and pain.
Affirmations are simple messages. Repeated over-and-over, they begin to worm their way into your mind. Slowly changing both your thinking and your reality.
These positive affirmations might begin as wishful thinking. But they end up becoming the reality of your life.
List of Positive Affirmations
This is not my personal collection of positive affirmations. (Although some of the links are mine).
This is a collection is a list of some of the best positive affirmations available. Every picture links to a post with more affirmations and/information on affirmations. I encourage you to check out all the links.
Before we dive into the list of positive affirmations I want to take one moment to discuss how affirmations work.
Don’t care? Then feel free to skip down to the pretty pictures.
Help change your thinking and reality using positive affirmations.
The Science Behind Positive Affirmations
Affirmations do not work by magic. For the most part they work due to the power of positive thinking. First, affirmations make people receptive to change. Then they assist in bringing the change about.
Studies show it is easier to make positive change when you use daily affirmations. Affirmations prime your brain for change.
The first way affirmations work is by creating less anxiety and stress about the change you are undertaking.
Secondly, they change the way people think about "falling off the wagon" with their change. There is nothing wrong with having an "off day" with a habit change. Unfortunately many people use this as an excuse to say, "I can't do it" and quit. Daily affirmations give you the motivation to keep going through these tough times.
The biggest method affirmations effect change is due to the science of neuroplasticity. What is neuroplasticity? You may wonder? To put it simply, neuroplasticity is the science of rewiring the brain for different thoughts.
Kids do this all the time. And they do it quite easily.
As we grow older it becomes tougher and tougher to change our thoughts. We become used to our thought patterns. But with conscious effort you can "rewire" your brain. One of the best ways to do this is by using positive affirmations.

100 Positive Affirmations for Self Love
Self love. Perhaps those words sound a bit indulgent to you. They certainly can be indulgent when self love is found in someone vain and self centered.
But for most people self love is something we don't get enough of. We are often our own worst critics. It is easy to be critical of our own mistakes. And we may be unforgiving when we fail.
If you want to succeed in life you need to love yourself. Those that want more than anything to find love, need to love themselves first.
"Love thyself" is some of the best advice ever written. If you want to do well... in just about anything, you need to love yourself. Positive affirmations are a great way to bolster a flagging self love. They will build your confidence in your best asset: yourself.
Unless you create goals and plans all your positive affirmations may end up as is wishful thinking.
Positive thinking is wonderful. It is an important part of success, but even more you need action to succeed. This is where goal setting comes into play.
When you create goals it is a step-by-step instruction on the process you will use to reach your desires. Achieving your desires without goals is like putting together a complicated IKEA assembly project. You may get it done in the end, but it will not be as efficient or easy as if you followed directions.
Goals setting come in two different styles. There are process goals and outcome goals.
Outcome goals are goals what most people think about when they think of goals. They are the end result. They include goals like: "I want to earn one million dollars" and "I want to lose twenty pounds."
Process goals, on the other hand, are based on steps in the process of reaching your goals. These are goals like: "I want to increase my revenue by 5% every month." And, "I want to lose 3 pounds every month".
Personally, I prefer process goals. These goals give you a standard to keep and are much better for tracking than outcome goals.
If you want to improve your goals I suggest you check out my goal setting worksheets. These free download printables help you track and monitor goals. This increases your chance to succeed in your desires.
Work is a common area where many people want to improve and get ahead.
People may want to get promotions in their 9-5 jobs. They may want to find a job that has long term security. They may want a new job where they are challenged and can grow with the company. The may want to turn their side hustle into its own viable business.
There are many reasons why people want to get ahead in business. But the reasons don't matter. Positive daily affirmations will help them to get there.
Obviously and affirmations on their own are not going to increase your productivity at work. However, the increased energy and positive mindset from the affirmations will make a huge impact on your personal productivity.
Much of the success we achieve at work is built around the habits we build into our workday. If these work habits are good ones then you will do well in any work environment. If you do not have good work habits your efforts may run hot-and-cold.
If you want to do better at work or your side hustle, I encourage you to check out this post (below) which showcases the best work habits.

Positive Affirmations for Success
Success is a bit of a nebulous term. People often refer to it with the idea that success = money. It can be be that, but there are many more ways to be successful.
If relationships are your goal, having a happy healthy family is success. If travel is your goal, visiting many places and checking off hundreds of items from a vibrant bucket list may be the meaning of success.
There are as many personal definitions of success as there are different people in the world.
Only you know what it means for you to achieve success. Many people are unhappy because they measure themselves using other peoples yardsticks for success and perhaps find themselves wanting.
But regardless of what you think of as the measure of success, you can tailor your personal affirmations to help you achieve that.
Try an affirmation board on for size.
If you want to achieve success (in whatever area you desire). I recommend you try an affirmation board.
This board is something that should go somewhere you see often. It can be any type of board you can write on or post things on.
Dry Erase Boards
The simple idea is that you want to put your favorite affirmations on this board and then naturally, throughout your day you will see the affirmations and be reminded of the reasons you strive for success and what you have to do to achieve this success.
If you print out many of the images on this affirmations page, they will make perfect additions to your home affirmation board. Try one out and see how it works for you!
I control my day; I will not let my day control me.
My passion for business brings tangible results.
I will not let others impose their limitations on me.
I am fully committed to achieving success in my life.
My only limit is myself.
126 Positive Daily Affirmations
Here we are at the final section. Positive daily affirmations.
There is no rule on when you should do your affirmations, every day. The only important point is that affirmations do become a habit you do every single day. Affirmations gain their power by repetition. If you are not repeating your habits every day, there becomes little point in even saying your affirmations.
While there is not a "right" time for affirmations. I do think there is a best time, and that time is in the mornings.
The main reason for this is that affirmations are easy to integrate into your normal morning routine.
The other reason is the timing. In the morning your day is full of potential. Anything can happen.
The day could be a wonderful one filled with fun and productivity. Or the day could be horrible. One of those days where you constantly feel rushed and accomplish little.
One thing many people do not realize is how much the way your day goes is based upon your attitude. When you wake up happy and in a positive mood your day will often follow this track, because your attitude makes it this way.
Conversely, when you wake up late. A little angry with yourself and rush out the door, the day that follows will seem rushed.
Most of this is about attitude. But remember: by saying positive daily affirmations we can adjust our attitudes to fit our desires for the day.
So on those days you wake up in a foul mood it is more important than ever to take 5 minutes of your time and recite some daily affirmations to make a shift in your attitude that could potentially turn a "bad day" into a good one.
