30 Morning Affirmations to Boost Your Confidence Daily

One of the most efficient forms of mental preparation is morning affirmations. Have you ever wanted to change something about your life? You go to sleep thinking, “Tomorrow will be different. Tomorrow will be the beginning of the rest of my life.” The desire to change your life is so strong you can barely fall asleep thinking about how great tomorrow will be.

Your plan is to stop procrastinating and start that new business, join a gym, demand a raise, or ask that special someone on a date. Then, the next day comes and nothing quite goes the way you expected. While the day showed promise, you ended up stopping before you ever gained any momentum.

That cycle is the result of you not mentally preparing yourself to change your life. Change can be stressful and overwhelming at times, so you want to be confident in your ability to succeed[1]. Morning affirmations can help you get there.

In this article, you will find 30 morning affirmations to help you start afresh, so read on!

Don’t Overthink It

When you procrastinate, it is often due to a lack of certainty around what is going to happen next. What do you do if the business doesn’t take off like you hoped? How will you manage rejection, or what if you don’t accomplish your goals as quickly as you you hoped?

As you ponder the answer to these questions, your mind begins to worry about the likelihood of success. Somewhere in your subconscious, you have a belief that contradicts your conscious mind. As a result, you must take on the task of reprogramming your subconscious mind to match your conscious mind.

The most efficient way to reprogram your subconscious mind is to feed it experiences of success. You may believe every fiber of your being wants to change your life, but that is rarely the case. While, on a conscious level, you understand the benefits of the transformation you want to make in your life, the underlying fear of the unknown is causing you to hesitate and wonder if your life isn’t already good enough.

This doubt manifests itself when you attempt to try something new[2]. It makes you feel as though the change you want to make in your life will cost you your life if you fail. On a conscious level, you know rejection is not life threatening, but that doesn’t change the inner emotional turmoil you experience.

The Key to Building Confidence

The best way to overcome your fear and self-doubt is to program your mind with confidence and faith. Faith is the ability to see a future that you have yet to experience. Since you have not materialized your strongest desires yet, there is plenty of uncertainty surrounding your ability to do so. This is why it is important for you to continually reinforce to your subconscious mind your desires and ability to change your life with morning affirmations.

Think of your subconscious mind as the accumulation of all your life experiences. These experiences then create your beliefs, which in turn create your habits, which ultimately create your actions. You could have been rejected as a child, and now you avoid sharing your ideas. There could have been a past business venture that failed, and now you don’t know if the next one will succeed.

Watch the People Around You

Interestingly enough, some of your past experiences are not even your own. The negative experiences of others can also lead to inaction and a lack of confidence. Imagine you have a friend who is always talking about how awful their experience was at a particular restaurant. How likely are you to want to eat at that restaurant?

Let me take it a step further. If someone asked for your opinion about the restaurant, what thoughts would immediately surface? The thoughts shared by your friend, of course. Even though you never personally attended the restaurant, you have strong feelings because of the repeated complaints from your friend.

Whether positive or negative, consistent thoughts and experiences will change your perspective and cause your actions to change accordingly. By starting each day with morning affirmations, you will take control of what you allow your mind to contemplate throughout the day. Instead of allowing fear and doubt to paralyze you, you will fill your mind with thoughts of confidence and faith.

Protect Your Most Precious Treasure

The impact your experiences have on the decisions you make doesn’t stop there. It also includes fictional events that have never happened to anyone. Have you ever found yourself behind a semi-truck carrying a load of cut down trees? If you have seen the movie Final Destination, then you know where I am going with this. In the movie, there is a scene where twenty logs fall off the back of a semi-truck and start barreling into the cars behind him. Logs are smashing through windshields, flipping cars over and killing dozens of people.

Anyone that has seen this scene cannot help but feel uneasy about driving behind a semi-truck carrying logs. Even though this event did not happen in real life, your mind could care less. As far as it is concerned, because you “witnessed” it, you experienced it. And since you experienced it, your mind recognized the events that led to it “happening” and “warns” you.

Say It Like You Mean It

To your mind, experiences are experiences. Whether those experiences are your own, someone else’s, or even if they are fictional stories, your mind will absorb lessons from them. This is why morning affirmations work so well. Over time, your mind is going to accept those experiences as fact[3]. This will lead you to ultimately take action that is aligned with your goals.

Confidence is built through experience, so you need to create the imagery in your mind of the change you want to see in your life. It may feel silly at first, but think about it. In each of the examples discussed, the actions were dictated by past experiences. What do your past experiences say about the decisions you make today?

If you are ready to change your life, then commit to repeating these morning affirmations every day for the next 30 days.

Final Thoughts

Morning affirmations can help you start each day with positive momentum. This momentum will propel you through your day and the challenges you face. The goal is to change your perception about the life, so you can change your actions.

Confidence is not a lack of fear, but the understanding you can accomplish the goal you set forth. You have confidence in anything you have already accomplished. If you have learned to walk or ride a bike, it is difficult for someone to convince you that you cannot accomplish those tasks. Yet, if I asked you to walk to the top of Mount Everest, your confidence may fade. Nevertheless, someone who has successfully scaled Mount Everest would not hesitate at the challenge.

For you to create confidence in something you haven’t done, start using morning affirmations immediately. The only thing that can overcome failure is persistence and faith in yourself. Stay true to yourself and never give up until you have made your dream a reality.

How to Get “I Can’t Do It” Out of Your Vocabulary

How to Get “I Can’t Do It” Out of Your Vocabulary

When someone says, “I can’t do it” . . . I say to myself, “What do you mean you can’t do it?” Maybe you don’t want to do it, but saying you “can’t” do it is a completely different story.

With the right mindset, positive attitude, and a clear vision of what you want to accomplish, the only thing that is holding you back is yourself.

Can’t is a terrible word and it has to be taken out of your vocabulary.

By saying you can’t do something, you’re already doubting yourself, submitting to defeat, and you’re making that barrier around your life tighter.

So today, right now, we are going to remove this word for good.

From now on there is nothing we can’t do.

“Attitude is Tattoo”

Your attitude is everything; it’s your reason, your why and how, your facial expression, emotions, body language, and potentially the end result. How you approach an opportunity, and the result of it, is solely based on you — not your boss or your co-worker or friend.

If you enter a business meeting with a sour attitude, that negative energy can spread like wildfire. People can also feel it — maybe even taste it. This is not an impression you want to leave.

Now imagine you enter a business meeting with a positive attitude, that whatever happens in here is going to be your result, in your control, not someone else’s. Of course, we can’t always win, but even if the outcome is negative, your attitude and perception can turn it into a positive. The question is: can you do it?

Of course you can, because there is nothing in this world you can’t do.

It’s much better to be known for your positive attitude — your poise, your energy, the reason why things go so well because you are able to maintain such character. A negative attitude is easy. It’s easy to complain, it’s easy to be mad, and it’s even easier to do nothing to change it.

When I say your “attitude is tattoo”, it sounds permanent. Tattoos can be removed, but that’s not the point. Your attitude is like a tattoo because you wear it. People can see it and sometimes, they will judge you on it. If you maintain a negative attitude, then it is permanent until you change it.

Change your attitude and I guarantee the results change as well.

Believe You Can Do It

Do you know why most people say “can’t” and doubt themselves before trying anything?

It’s our lack of self-confidence and fear on many different levels. The one thing we have to purge from ourselves is fear — fear of bad results, fear of change, fear of denial, fear of loss, the fear that makes us worry and lose sleep. Worrying is the same as going outside with an umbrella, waiting for rain to hit it. Stop worrying and move on.

Confidence is fragile: It builds up slowly, but can shatter like glass. Project your confidence and energy into believing in yourself. This is a very important and groundbreaking step — one that is usually the hardest to take. Start telling yourself you can do something, anything, and you will do it the best to your ability. Remove doubt, remove fear, and stick with positive energy.

Learn how to boost your confidence: How to Be Confident: 62 Proven Ways to Build Self-Confidence

Embrace Failure

Do not fear failure. Do not run away from it. Face it, learn from it, grow, and take action. Just remember: You will never know success if you have never failed.

Your confidence will bolster after embracing these facts. You will be immune to demoralizing results, and instead you will find ways to fix it, improve upon it, and make it better than before. You will learn to never say “can’t,” and will realize how many more opportunities you can create by removing that one word.

Don’t let one simple and ugly word plague your confidence. You’re better and stronger than that.

Start Making the Change

But to actually start the process of change is very challenging.

Why is that?

Fear? Time? Don’t know how — or where — to start?

It’s hard because what we’re doing is unlearning what we know. We are used to doing things a certain way, and chances are we’ve been doing them for years.

So here are some ways that I avoid using the word “can’t”, and actually take the steps to put forth the change that I wish to see. I hope you can incorporate these methods into your life.

Write down What You Want to Change

Write it on post-its, notecards, whatever makes you comfortable — something you will always see. I usually write mine on post-its and put them all over the wall behind my monitor so I always see them.

Tell a Friend and Talk About It

Discussing your goals, what you want to change, is very effective when you say it out loud and tell another person other than yourself. It’s almost like saying, hey, I bet I can do it — watch me.

When you fulfill that goal and tell your friend, it feels rewarding and will motivate you to do it again in a different aspect. Who knows? Maybe your friend adopts the same mindset as you.

Stop Yourself from Saying the Forbidden Word

Sometimes,I can’t control myself in public when I’m with friends, so I have to be careful with the words I use so I don’t embarrass or insult anyone.

Treat the word “can’t” as the worst word you can possibly use. Stop yourself from saying it, mid-sentence if you must, and turn your whole perspective around — you can do it, you will do it, and nothing is impossible!

Repetition, Repetition, Repetition

You think this change will be overnight? No way. This is a practice. Something you’re going to be doing for the rest of your life from now until forever.

As I said earlier, you are unlearning what you know. You know how easy it is to say you can’t do something, so by unlearning this easy practice, you’re self-disciplining yourself to live without boundaries.

Advertising

Practice this everyday, a little at a time, and before you know it, the word can’t will not be part of your language.

Do Anything That Can Relieve Your Uncertainty

When I catch myself saying I can’t do something or I don’t know something, looking up information on that action or subject, doing research, educating yourself, relieves that uncertainty.

Sometimes, we think we can’t do something because the whole idea of it seems too large. We skip the small steps in our head and only focus on the end.

Before you say you can’t do something, rewind and slow down a little bit. Focus on what the first step is, then the next. Take it a step at a time, and before you know it you will have done something you previously thought you couldn’t do.

Final Thoughts

You know what you must do. The first step is right now. Once you begin this habit, and really start noticing some change, you’ll realize the door to opportunity is everywhere.

The funny thing is: Those doors have always been there. The evil word that we no longer use put a veil over our eyes because that’s how powerful that word is.
