Affirmations For Confidence
It can be difficult to maintain confidence in ourselves–especially when we live in a world that is constantly telling us we’re not good enough. But the truth is, we are all worthy and deserving of an abundant life full of happiness and success. The recent pandemic has seen us become isolated, unsure and ultimately less confident in ourselves and our abilities. One way to remind ourselves of this is through affirmations.
What are affirmations in general?
Affirmations are simply positive statements about ourselves, our wants and desires that we repeat to program our mind for success. By repeating affirmations, we can change the way we think and feel about ourselves–ultimately increasing our confidence. People all over the globe use affirmations every day to manifest their dreams and goals, and you can too!
Why are affirmations so powerful?
The mind is a very powerful tool–if we believe something to be true, our mind will work tirelessly to make it happen. This is what’s known as the Law of Attraction. So, if we want to attract confidence into our lives, we need to start with affirmations that build us up, rather than tear us down.
How do I write my own affirmations for confidence?
There are a few things you’ll want to keep in mind when writing your affirmations:
-Keep them short, sweet and simple. The shorter the better–this way they’re easy to remember and repeat.
-Make them specific to you and your goals. The more personal the affirmations, the more powerful they’ll be.
-Write them in the present tense. This tells your mind that what you’re affirming is already true. For example, “I am confident” rather than “I will be confident.”
-Focus on how you want to feel, rather than what you want to achieve. When we focus on how we want to feel, our minds are more likely to create experiences that match those emotions.
Here are ten affirmations for confidence you can get started with:
1. I am worthy of love and respect.
2. I am capable of achieving anything I set my mind to.
3. I am strong and courageous.
4. I believe in myself.
5. I deserve to be happy and successful.
6. I am surrounded by people who support and believe in me.
7. I am unique and special.
8. I am beautiful inside and out.
9. It is safe for me to be confident and express myself fully.
10. Every day, in every way, I am getting better and better.
Act as if
Go ahead, puff your chest out, walk upright with confidence and put a smile on your face. It might feel strange at first, but by acting as if we are already confident, we can trick our minds into believing it–and before you know it, it will become second nature. Increasing our positive vibrations can help tell the universe you are ready and willing and compliment your affirmations for confidence perfectly.
I like to incorporate a vision board into my affirmations for confidence. This is simply a board (could even be a poster, or pieces of paper stuck on your fridge) that you fill with images and affirmations that inspire and motivate you. Seeing these each day will help increase your confidence as well as remind you of what it is you’re working towards. You can take a magazine and cut out images that resonate with you, or look for affirmations and quotes online.
Guided affirmations are another great way to increase your confidence, especially if you’re new to affirmations or finding it difficult to write your own. You can find guided affirmations for confidence online in places like YouTube.
You can also affirm yourself throughout the day by speaking kindly to yourself–be your own best cheerleader! This might sound cheesy, but it works. The more we speak kindly and lovingly to ourselves, the more our confidence will grow–it’s that simple.
When we increase our confidence, we open up a world of possibilities and opportunities. We become more likely to take risks, put ourselves out there and go after our dreams.
Repetition is key
Remember, affirmations are only powerful if we believe them to be true. So it’s important to repeat them regularly–multiple times a day if possible. The more we repeat our affirmations, the more likely our minds are to believe them, and the more confident we will become.
Remember, affirmations are just one tool in the toolbox–but they are a powerful one. When used correctly and combined with other positive actions, affirmations can help increase our confidence and bring us closer to achieving our goals.
No matter what life throws your way, remember that you are capable and deserving of handling it with grace and confidence. These affirmations for confidence are just a starting point–you can (and should) customize them to fit your specific needs and goals. So get out there and start attracting the life you want!
