Your daily affirmation check-point right here!

If the idea of affirmations seems a little woo-woo to you, then it’s worth considering that there is science behind why they work, so even if you’re a skeptic, it’s worth giving it a go. Worst case scenario, nothing happens, but nothing ventured, nothing gained.

We have listed down 10 affirmations to get you through that rough day!

I am in control of my life

First off, from the minute you get up, it’s important to remind yourself that you are in the driving seat, no matter what. Whatever’s going on for you at work or at home, you’re still in control. You control your actions, your responses, and your inactions. Accepting full responsibility and accountability for your career and life is the first step to more happiness and success.

Today will be a great day

Just like you can decide to go for a workout in the morning or to give yourself extra time in bed, you can also decide that you will have a good day. Now, this doesn’t mean to say that there won’t be challenges or things sent to test you. But setting the intention for a good day will ultimately get you off to a much better start because when you do this, you’ll be priming your brain to look for good things.

I focus on what I want. You get what you focus on and what you focus on grows

If you’ve ever felt like the world was against you and everything kept going wrong, then there’s no coincidence. Your brain is like a heat-seeking missile, and whatever you focus on is what it will search for and confirm. So, if you start your day expecting everything to go wrong, that’s exactly what you’ll see. It’s unlikely that you’ll notice when anything does go right. So, focus instead on the things you want, and you’ll be likely to see more of it.


I can handle anything that comes my way

This is the real world, after all, and no matter what you do, sometimes, things won’t go according to plan. If that happens, remembering that you can handle it will keep you strong and resilient. After all, whatever doesn’t kill you will only make you stronger.

I have all the strength and confidence within me that I need to succeed

We often look outside ourselves for answers when, in actual fact, we have everything we need inside. Think of how you feel when you’re on form, in flow, hitting things out of the park. In many ways, that’s likely when you see yourself most clearly. Taking time every day to remember how much you’ve already achieved and the resources you have within you reminds you of what you’re truly capable of.


Everything in life happens for me

You can be a victim of your circumstances, waiting for things to change and feeling like things are happening to you, or you can make your own luck by embracing the idea that things in life happen for you. Think about this for a minute. If things are happening for you, it means there’s something you can get out of any situation. When you think this way, you’ll find that you search for what’s good and beneficial instead of feeling powerless and hard done by.

The most essential thing is that I learn something

Humans are built to avoid pain, and we quickly learn from our mistakes. Most of us don’t learn much from the times when things run smoothly. We learn from the mistakes we make and from things not going the way we planned.


Nothing can stop me from achieving what I want

You’re in a positive frame of mind, you’re ready for anything, you’re prepared to make mistakes and learn from them, and you know you are strong enough and confident enough to handle anything.

I am awesome

There’s nothing wrong with a little self-love, or a LOT, in fact.

I am making today count

No matter what the day brings your way, whatever happens, the most important thing is to make sure you do something every single day that will move you towards the things you want, help you grow or develop in some way, or make a difference in someone else life. It’s all about making every single day count by doing something, however big or small.
