99 Essential Positive Affirmations

 

I have been using positive affirmations for most of my adult life and know that the subtle changes they have made to my thinking has changed my life beyond measure.

You might think repeating positive affirmations to yourself seems like new age hoo hah, which is kind of what I thought when I first heard Émile Coué’s famous affirmation:

Every day in every way I am getting better and better

Hot-Air-Ballons

How on earth can repeating a positive affirmation like this help you?

 

It’s all to do with beliefs.

Your beliefs underpin every single thought you make, every action you take, every goal you set, every value you have, every habit your form, ultimately leading you to your destiny in life.  One of the ways your beliefs are formed in life is through repetition e.g. if you were constantly told as a child just how kind you are, chances are you’ll believe that you are a kind person.

This can have negative consequences as well such as being told you are no good enough at something, again, chances are you’ll have the belief that you are not good in a particular area of your life.  This is how abusers break down their victims, by constantly telling them how they are no goo, nobody wants them, therefore making them reliant on their abuser.

That’s a very brief outline about beliefs, and obviously there’s a lot more to it than that, but you get the picture.

So, we can use this knowledge of beliefs and how repetition can help us form new beliefs by using affirmations.

Cognitive Dissonance

When you first start using affirmations your mind will try and reject them.  This is perfectly natural as there’s something called cognitive dissonance happening, which means you are trying to hold two conflicting beliefs at the same time.  For example, at the moment, you might believe that you will never have money in your life, and when you start using affirmations like: ‘money flows easily to me in my life’, your mind automatically says ‘Eh! wait a minute, that’s bull.  For years you’ve been telling me I’ll never have money, and now you’re saying money flows easily to me…what the hell?’

 

Cognitive dissonance

 

This cognitive dissonance will fade over time and the more you use affirmations the more your old beliefs will fade away.

So, lets get on to the affirmations.

    Do you prefer Steve or Steven? Having a double name that eve my family doesn’t get right has made me sensitive to getting names right for others.
    I really appreciate this reminder about Positive Affirmations. I used to be diligent thinking positively and I have gotten sloppy, especially first thing in the morning (which makes staying under the covers really tempting). I have printed your list and hung it by my bed. No more “wandering into dangerous territory” thoughts for me in the morning. Thank you again for your post. I am new to your blog. I love it. -Mary Lynn

    • Wow that’s great that you’ve printed it out Mary and you’re seeing it every morning as you get up.

      Glad you like the blog, have neglected it for a bit, but I proimise to write a lot more.

      I prefer Steve btw :)

  2. Hi Steven,

    Really great affirmations you have here!!

    At first, it may seem like we’re pretending or even fooling ourselves but we are rewiring our perspective so it will feel that way at first.

    Like you said, eventually the old beliefs will fade away :)

    Thanks for this great list!

  3. Steve,

    A very comprehensive list! Saw quite a few I was missing out on. Thanks!

  4. GREAT Affirmations. I m sure these affirmations can change the life.

    Regards,

    RAJEEV

  5. Great list! There are a few “you” and “your” that need to be “I, me, or my”, but I love the list.
    I also like: My life is an exciting journey full of wonders.

  6. I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy!
