We are often told to think positively and be confident, but what does that actually mean? And more importantly, how do you achieve it?
One way to get there is through the practice of daily affirmations.
By using I Am Affirmations, you can create a more powerful and positive mindset and literally change the way you think.
We all know what it’s like to experience hard days, we know how easy it is to fall into that spiral of negative thinking and feeling like the world is against us, and we know that our mind is pretty darn powerful…
So why not use the power of your mind to work for you instead of against you…
What Are Affirmations?
You know that little voice in your head that’s always putting you down?
The one that tells you can’t do it, you’re not good enough, and you might as well give up now?
Well, affirmations are like the kryptonite to that negativity.
Affirmations are positive statements that help to counter negative self-talk and rewire the brain for success. They work on your unconscious mind in positive ways, and the good news is – your mind is already wired and ready for the power of positive affirmations.
By repeating these powerful statements, you can start to overcome your negative thoughts as your brain creates new neural pathways and literally retrains your brain to focus on positive thinking.
The simple statements disrupt the negative thought pattern, which allows your mind to essentially step back from the negative beliefs or false beliefs it has been focusing on, and refocus on a more positive direction with the power of affirmations.
Affirmations are said in the present tense, use positive words (rather than bringing focus to negative aspects) and require regular practice in order to see the major shifts and positive impact that can come with positive self affirmation.
Positive affirmations are powerful things and are a great way to help overcome low self-esteem, increase self love, create an awareness of your thoughts, increase self confidence, and create a positive mindset.

Why I Am Affirmations Are So Powerful
A lot of people think that affirmations are cheesy and that they don’t work.
But the truth is, affirmations are incredibly powerful.
And using “I am” affirmations are even more powerful.
That’s because when you use the words “I am,” you’re triggering your brain to pay attention because you’re talking about yourself, and establishing a new belief.
You’re also tapping into the creative energy of the universe. You’re declaring to the universe that this is what you already believe to be true.
Even if you don’t actually believe it, you’re putting that positive belief and that positive energy out into the universe.
I Am affirmations also help us to feel like we are in control, help us to take responsibility for ourselves, and understand that we can shift our focus and change how we perceive our own reality.
So if you want to attract more love into your life, start saying “I am attractive love.” If you want more money, start saying “I am abundant and wealthy.”
It’s really that simple.
125 Simple And Powerful I Am Affirmations:
The first 10 affirmations listed are my top pick of go-to powerful I am statements that, when said over and over, can have a profound impact on how you feel about yourself.
They’re fantastic for overcoming negative self-talk, and focusing more on a positive mindset.
Below there’s also a list of over 100 more affirmations you can choose from to use in your daily affirmation practice.
Be sure to select affirmations that resonate with you and that help you focus on positive self-talk.
1 – I am enough.
This is probably the most important affirmation on this list.
So many women go through life feeling like they’re not good enough, smart enough, pretty enough, etc. But the truth is that you are enough exactly as you are right now.
You have everything you need within you to be successful and happy. Believe it and start living accordingly.
2 – I am strong.
These days it seems like the world is against us sometimes, but remember – you are strong enough to handle whatever comes your way.
No matter what life throws your way, you will always find a way to overcome it. Trust yourself and have faith in your strength.
3 – I am worthy of love and respect.
This one is huge for women because we’re often socialized to believe that our worthiness is tied up in our looks or our ability to please others. But that’s simply not true!
You are worthy of love and respect simply because you exist – not because of what you do or don’t do.
Remembering this will help keep your interactions with others grounded in a healthy sense of self-respect.
4 – I am capable of achieving anything I set my mind to.
One of the biggest lies we tell ourselves is that we’re not good enough to achieve our dreams. But the truth is that you are just as capable as anyone else – if not more so!
If you want something badly enough, you will find a way to make it happen. Period.
5 – I am worthy of success.
This is another one that goes hand-in-hand with the last affirmation.
We often believe that we don’t deserve to be successful because we’re not perfect or because we haven’t worked hard enough. But the truth is that success is something that happens to people who believe they deserve it – not just those who have “earned” it.
You are just as worthy of success as anyone else. Start acting like it and you’ll start seeing results.
6 – I am grateful for everything I have in my life.
It’s easy to take the good things in our lives for granted. We get so caught up in wanting more that we forget to appreciate what we already have.
But the truth is that no matter how much we have, there will always be someone who has less. So instead of focusing on what you don’t have, focus on the abundance that already exists in your life.
Be grateful for your health, your family, your friends, your home, and everything else you have been blessed with.
7 – I am living my best life.
This affirmation is a great reminder to stay present and focused on what’s important to you.
It’s easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of life and lose sight of what matters most. But if you take a step back and focus on the things that are truly important to you, you will see that you are already living your best life.
8 – I am surrounded by love and support.
This affirmation is a great reminder that you are never alone.
Even when it feels like the world is against you, there are always people who love and support you. Remembering this will help you to stay strong in the face of adversity.
9 – I am happy and healthy.
This affirmation is a great reminder to focus on your physical and mental health.
Happiness and health are two of the most important things in life, so it’s important to make sure that you are taking care of yourself both physically and mentally.
10 – I am worthy of happiness.
This affirmation is a great reminder that you deserve to be happy.
Too often, we believe that we don’t deserve to be happy because of our past or because of the current circumstances in our lives. But the truth is that happiness is a choice, and you are worthy of choosing it for yourself.
