It can be really hard to stay positive given how the world is right now and also due to the fact that 2020 has been really tough. So I deliberately put together a list of 20 positive affirmations you should tell yourself daily. We are what we say. The mind is a powerful place and what you feed it can affect you in a powerful way. For example, if you look at your face everyday when you wake up and think you’ll never be great, you’ll never be great not because you weren’t destined to be great but because your negative thoughts will somehow find a way to cut you up and murder your faith and belief in yourself.

Positive affirmations are positive statements that can help you to challenge and overcome negative and self demeaning thoughts. When you repeat them often and believe in them, you will start to make positive changes. Here are some handpicked positive affirmations you should tell yourself daily:

1) I am not a failure.

2) My strength is greater than any struggle.

3) I am loved (I deserve love).

4) I am worthy of joy, love, and happiness.

5) I am proud of myself.

16) I am in control of my thoughts and feelings.

17) My past is not a reflection of my future.

18) I am strong, powerful, resilient and nothing will ever bring me down.

19) I’ll keep fighting, I know I am not a quitter. Champions don’t quit and I am a champion.

  • I know my worth.
  • I am fearless.
  • I am at peace with who I am as a person.
  • I accept my past.
  • I am courageous and I’ll stand up for myself.
  • I don’t need someone else to be happy.
  • I am bold, I am beautiful, I am me!

Some people say affirmations out loud in front of a mirror, some repeat them in their head like a mantra during meditation while some write it down. I love saying affirmations out loud and I also love writing them down and pasting them on the wall where I can see them often. You might prefer chanting it like a mantra which is also cool. Whichever way you do it, what’s important is that by telling yourself these positive affirmations, you are building yourself, strengthening your mind and gently making yourself into the person you want to be!
