Some people love affirmations and others don’t - they’re a very personal thing and they don’t work for everyone.

If you do enjoy using affirmations, if they’ve worked for you before or you’re keen to try them for the first time, or perhaps you know someone who loves affirmations…then you’re going to love this blog post.

Here’s what you need to know about affirmations (in brief because we know you’re really here for the list!)…

Affirmations are positive statements that have been designed to create personal growth and change by helping the brain create new thought patterns. They reprogram the subconscious, encourage us to form new (better) beliefs, have a positive impact on mood and behaviour, serve as inspiration and assist us in creating the reality we desire.

There are a few key things to be mindful of when using affirmations, which we’ve distilled into a quick guide for you:

  • Effective affirmations are phrased positively.
  • Effective affirmations are written in the first person so they become statements of identity. Begin with “I” or “I am” or “My”.
  • Effective affirmations are written in the present tense.
  • Effective affirmations are clear and simple.
  • Repetition is key for affirmations to be effective - it takes tim and regular practice for them to begin to feel more like the truth.
  • Effective affirmations need to have plenty of feeling behind them.
  • Effective affirmations are deeply personal - it’s best to create your own list of affirmations that you resonate with.

We’ve found the best affirmations from around the web and compiled them into the ultimate list of affirmations that you’ll find below. Obviously, some will be similar due to the subject matter overlap, but since our goal was to create the ultimate, one stop resource for affirmations, we’ve included all of the good ones for you.

As always, we encourage you to focus on what works for you and get serious about implementing what you learn.

The Ultimate List of Affirmations begins here…

The team at Good Therapy published a blog on how affirmations can change your life and it’s a really worthwhile read. They explore what affirmations are and share a list of 15 very powerful ones, including an explanation of the impact they’ll have when used.

How 15 Positive Affirmations Can Change Your Life

“Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t—you’re right.” Henry Ford

When Henry Ford first conceived of the V8 motor, his engineers told him it was simply impossible to cast an 8-cylinder engine block in just one piece. Ford told the engineers to do it anyway. He instructed them to try until they succeeded, no matter how long it took. If they wished to remain employed by Ford, this was their one and only task. After more than a year of trying with no results, Ford told them to continue. Shortly after, the first V8 motor was built.

Our thoughts and beliefs shape both our perception and experience of ourselves and the world around us.

Research indicates that nearly 80% of our self talk is negative.

Imagine spending your whole day listening to a recording of whining, complaints, and criticisms. What many people fail to recognize is that they are listening to these types of thoughts in their head on repeat every day.

Our programming can become so ingrained in us that we may not be aware of its existence. Thoughts such as “I’m not good at anything,” “Life is hard,” or “People can’t be trusted” may cross our minds so frequently that we begin to recognize them as facts and no longer question the possibility that things could be different.

The word affirmation comes from the Latin affirmare, which means “to strengthen and make steady.” Affirmation statements are affirming that something is true for us. The purpose of positive affirmations is to affirm to ourselves that things are good even if we don’t necessarily feel that way at the time.

Positive affirmations have the power to transform lives. They play a significant role in many therapeutic models—including cognitive behavioral therapy, a treatment for depression. Positive affirmations are also at the forefront of many 12-step rehabilitation programs.

Carefully constructed positive affirmations can “rewire” our brains to break negative thought patterns.

Similar to exercise, positive affirmations can actually increase the amount of feel-good hormones in our brains. Positive thoughts create positive emotions, which can actually change our physiology and improve our mental, emotional, and physical health.

Here are 15 positive affirmations that can help change your life:

1. I am worthy of love, happiness, and fulfillment.
This affirmation can increase your self-esteem and self-worth. You are what you believe you are!

2. I have the power within me to create the life I desire.
This empowering statement can help you recognize that you alone have the power to create the life you want. Honor your power to choose by choosing thoughts and actions that positively contribute to your life.

3. Each new day is filled with infinite potential and possibility.
You’ve probably heard the phrase “Tomorrow is a new day.” Every new day brings with it new opportunities. Carpe Diem. Seize the day by making the most of the opportunities available to you.

4. I am so grateful for my life and all its blessings.
An attitude of gratitude can not only boost your mood and increase your awareness of all the blessings you already possess, but it also serves to attract even more good things into your life.

5. I forgive myself and hold myself in a state of compassion.
Forgiveness can free us from past burdens and allow us to operate from a clean slate. Love yourself, recognize that you did the best you could in the past, and strive to continue to learn and do better in the future.

6. I love and accept myself just the way I am.
The simple act of self-acceptance can radically transform your life. A healthy relationship with yourself is necessary if you wish to have healthy relationships with others.

7. I am strong in my values and confident in my abilities.
Strong values and self-confidence can keep you feeling empowered, strong, and capable of taking on life’s challenges.

8. I let go of the past, surrender concerns about the future, and openly receive the experience of the present moment.
When we let go of the past, it no longer has power over us. Choose to live in the present moment and remain open to its possibilities.

9. I continue to learn, grow, and evolve with each passing day.
Remembering that each day is a new opportunity for learning may make it easier to let go of the past and remain excited about the future.

10. I attract experiences that serve my highest good and facilitate personal growth and transformation.
A negative attitude can invite negative experiences. By keeping a positive perspective, we can openly embrace experiences that serve to help us grow and become better people.

11. My life is filled with meaning, purpose, and passion.
Seeking out meaningful experiences that ignite our passions can provide a sense of purpose and fulfillment in our lives.

12. I have positive, healthy, and supportive relationships with my loved ones.
Reminding ourselves that we wish to have healthy and supportive relationships in our lives can remind us to treat others with kindness, compassion, and respect. It can also empower us to stand up for ourselves by creating healthy boundaries in our relationships.

13. I am confident in my talents, strengths, gifts, and abilities.
Being confident in your gifts and strengths can give you the courage needed to put yourself out there and seize the opportunities presented.

14. I have the courage and tenacity to overcome any challenge I face.
There’s no doubt that life can sometimes be difficult. Regularly reminding ourselves of our courage and tenacity can provide us the strength needed to get through even the toughest of times.

15. I freely give and receive unconditional love and acceptance to myself and others.
Life is of little meaning without love. Reminding ourselves to be open to giving and receiving love can be important, especially after loss. Rather than guard your heart, choose to remain open to the love that is all around you.

Our thoughts and beliefs shape both our perception and experience of ourselves and the world around us. Research indicates that nearly 80% of our self talk is negative.

The more personal the affirmations are, the more likely they are to work for you. Try using the above affirmations as a guide to aid you in creating your own affirmation statements. Start by identifying your negative thought patterns and creating positive countering statements. For example, a phrase such as “I’m not good at anything” may become “I always do my best.”

Affirmations are most effective when implemented into a daily routine. Your own quotes can be read, spoken aloud, and thought several times throughout the day.  Repetition is key. The more you say it, the more you may believe it.

Affirmations are more than simply repeating words, however. Though the process may seem silly if you’re new to it, affirmations have the power to drastically improve lives by freeing people from their own negativity and self-doubt. Using affirmations is a practice of recognizing and changing your thoughts on a daily basis. Eventually, positive thoughts can transform your cognitive patterns and negative thoughts may become less prominent.

The more you can consciously choose your thoughts, the better your life can be.

How To Overcome Self-doubt & Build Confidence

Discover the framework for letting go of self-doubt so it can’t hold you back and learn how to build a foundation of self-confidence from which you can draw strength, motivation and happiness.

Live Bold & Bloom published a great article exploring the nature of affirmations, with reference to a couple of excellent books we also recommend you read! They concluded that positive thought patterns, repeated consistently, are a helpful personal growth tool and included a list of 101 life changing affirmations.

Positive Affirmations: 101 Life-Changing Thoughts To Practice Daily

Over thirty years ago, I came across the book You Can Heal Your Life, by Louise Hay. The book is about self-healing through the use of positive affirmations that correspond with different illnesses and ailments.

I was intrigued by the book at the time, but also skeptical about Ms. Hay's claims that our thoughts and lack of self-love contribute to disease and that positive affirmations can help heal us. Although I understood how affirmations could support positive thinking, I didn't believe they could change the cells and chemistry in my body.

Now I know that science supports the power of positive affirmations. Affirmations are basically a form of auto-suggestion, and when practiced deliberately and repeatedly, they reinforce chemical pathways in the brain, strengthening neural connections.

Says David J. Hellerstein, M.D., a Professor of Clinical Psychiatry at Columbia University, “In brief, we have realized that ‘neuroplasticity,' the ongoing remodeling of brain structure and function, occurs throughout life. It can be affected by life experiences, genes, biological agents, and by behavior, as well as by thought patterns.”

Neuroscience now proves that our thoughts can change the structure and function of our brains.

(If you want to learn more about this fascinating science, check out the book The Brain That Changes Itself: Stories of Personal Triumph from the Frontiers of Brain Science by Norman Doidge, M.D.)

By practicing positive thought patterns (affirmations) repetitively, we actually create neuroplasticity in the area of the brain that processes what we are thinking about. The key is repetition so you flood your brain with the positive thought.

When practicing affirmations, choose one or two to focus on for several weeks. Say the affirmation out loud in a confident voice several times a day and before you go to bed. To add more power to the affirmation, write it down as you speak it. Be sure your affirmations are in the present tense, as though they are a current reality.

Here are 101 positive affirmations you can practice to rewire your brain and change your life:

  1. Happiness is my birthright. I embrace happiness as my setpoint state of being.
  2. I feel joy and contentment in this moment right now.
  3. I awaken in the morning feeling happy and enthusiastic about life.
  4. I can tap into a wellspring of inner happiness anytime I wish.
  5. By allowing myself to be happy, I inspire others to be happy as well.
  6. I have fun with all of my endeavors, even the most mundane.
  7. I look at the world around me and can't help but smile and feel joy.
  8. I find joy and pleasure in the most simple things in life.
  9. I have an active sense of humor and love to share laughter with others.
  10. My heart is overflowing with joy.

Tab shows a Depressed woman with short haircut who is crying while hiding her face

Dr Carmen Harra, who holds doctorates in clinical psychology, clinical hypnotherapy, and alternative healing, wrote a great article for Huffington Post on affirmations that will change your life. Here’s what she had to say…

35 Affirmations That Will Change Your Life

If you believe the phrase you are what you think, then life truly stems from your thoughts. But we cannot rely purely on thoughts; we must translate thoughts into words and eventually into actions in order to manifest our intentions. This means we have to be very careful with our words, choosing to speak only those which work towards our benefit and cultivate our highest good.

Affirmations help purify our thoughts and restructure the dynamic of our brains so that we truly begin to think nothing is impossible. The word affirmation comes from the Latin affirmare, originally meaning “to make steady, strengthen.”

Affirmations do indeed strengthen us by helping us believe in the potential of an action we desire to manifest. When we verbally affirm our dreams and ambitions, we are instantly empowered with a deep sense of reassurance that our wishful words will become reality.

Affirmations are proven methods of self-improvement because of their ability to rewire our brains. Much like exercise, they raise the level of feel-good hormones and push our brains to form new clusters of “positive thought” neurons. In the sequence of thought-speech-action, affirmations play an integral role by breaking patterns of negative thoughts, negative speech, and, in turn, negative actions.

The art of the spoken word is critical in crafting our futures. As a teacher of spirituality, it is my firm belief that we influence the universe word by word. If we dictate to it our wishes, it will respond. When we utter a sound, we emit a sound wave into the universe. This sound wave pierces through the air and becomes a real object. It therefore exists in our world, intangible and invisible. No words are empty words, as every syllable we speak engages energy towards or against us. If you constantly say “I can’t,” the energy of your words will repel the universal force against you. But if you say “I can!” the universe will endow you with the abilities to do just that.

So speak away; relinquish your fears and purge your anger, predict your own future and live up to your potential with the 35 affirmations that will change your life:

  • I am the architect of my life; I build its foundation and choose its contents.
  • Today, I am brimming with energy and overflowing with joy.
  • My body is healthy; my mind is brilliant; my soul is tranquil.
  • I am superior to negative thoughts and low actions.
  • I have been given endless talents which I begin to utilize today.
  • I forgive those who have harmed me in my past and peacefully detach from them.
  • A river of compassion washes away my anger and replaces it with love.
  • I am guided in my every step by Spirit who leads me towards what I must know and do.
  • (If you’re married) My marriage is becoming stronger, deeper, and more stable each day.
  • I possess the qualities needed to be extremely successful.
  • (For business owners) My business is growing, expanding, and thriving.
  • Creative energy surges through me and leads me to new and brilliant ideas.
  • Happiness is a choice. I base my happiness on my own accomplishments and the blessings I’ve been given.
  • My ability to conquer my challenges is limitless; my potential to succeed is infinite.
  • (For those who are unemployed) I deserve to be employed and paid well for my time, efforts, and ideas. Each day, I am closer to finding the perfect job for me.
  • I am courageous and I stand up for myself.
  • My thoughts are filled with positivity and my life is plentiful with prosperity.
  • Today, I abandon my old habits and take up new, more positive ones.
  • Many people look up to me and recognize my worth; I am admired.
  • I am blessed with an incredible family and wonderful friends.
  • I acknowledge my own self-worth; my confidence is soaring.
  • Everything that is happening now is happening for my ultimate good.
  • I am a powerhouse; I am indestructible.
  • Though these times are difficult, they are only a short phase of life.
  • My future is an ideal projection of what I envision now.
  • My efforts are being supported by the universe; my dreams manifest into reality before my eyes.
  • (For those who are single) The perfect partner for me is coming into my life sooner than I expect.
  • I radiate beauty, charm, and grace.
  • I am conquering my illness; I am defeating it steadily each day.
  • My obstacles are moving out of my way; my path is carved towards greatness.
  • I wake up today with strength in my heart and clarity in my mind.
  • My fears of tomorrow are simply melting away.
  • I am at peace with all that has happened, is happening, and will happen.
  • My nature is Divine; I am a spiritual being.
  • My life is just beginning.

You can utilize any of these affirmations alone or create your own unique combination based on your personal wishes and needs. What is most important is to establish a profound communication with the universe — so say it with conviction, say it in your own unique voice, and make it happen in the real world.

The Ultimate List of Positive Affirmations for Every Occasion

Whenever I feel frustrated, it's usually because I'm struggling to make something happen in my life. Life is a beautiful and rare gift, but it doesn't always feel that way  unless I'm making the impact that I want to make.

If you've been struggling to kick ass and carpe diem, using a list of positive affirmations can help you start building momentum through powerful words that translate into action.

Overcoming Negative Self-Talk

As mean as other people can be, nobody says worse things than you do to yourself. Seriously, if you told your mom that 'she sucks' as often as you tell yourself, she'd be forced to publicly disown you.

Negative self-talk has a reverberating impact that's toxic to your happiness and success. Unfortunately, negative talk is so common in the workplace that even a positive person can be affected by it.
Language is powerful. You can use it to help manifest your dreams. It's the filter that you see the world through. Having a go-to list of positive affirmations is a good proactive way to keep your mind clean of negativity.

Why Tony Robbins Hates Statements of Personal Affirmation

The infamous self-help guru, Tony Robbins, hates using statements of affirmation! That's right, the king of self-improvement is telling you that affirmations are useless.

Well, not exactly.

Tony just sees the wasted opportunity when people speak affirmations without emotion. According to Tony, when affirmations are done correctly, they're referred to as 'incantations': affirmations that are spoken and felt with passion.

"People are bigger than anything bad that can happen to them.” Tony Robbins

He transforms an otherwise empty vessel of words into a streamlined self-improvement machine by speaking with emotion.

Having a list of positive affirmations is a lot like having a Ferrari but not knowing how to drive a stick shift. There's a lot of power there, but only if you know how to use it.

You need to say your affirmations with genuine emotion if you want them to have an impact on you. Without your passion, words are useless. With passion, affirmations are the first step towards making your dreams a reality.
