8 Motivational Affirmations

You don’t need to take a class or cite a study to know that positive thinking is a powerful tool. Harboring negative emotions, even unconsciously, can affect your mental health and influence your actions. It’s even more difficult living in a world that’s frequently focused on comparison and judgment. Because so many of our feelings toward something are manifested subconsciously, it’s difficult to do a mental 180 when it comes to thoughts on a situation, no matter how you try!

An affirmation can be a great way to tackle a nagging negative feeling and transform it into something that you benefit and grow from. Simply by reading inspiring words, I feel a sense of peace and confidence. Like a friend that gives you all the right advice just when you need it, affirmations can provide the positive reinforcement we need when no one’s around.

Success Maya AngelouI’ve rounded up 8 motivational affirmations that reinforce positive thinking and self-love.. because we could all use a little more of both :)

1. I possess the qualities need to be extremely successful.

2. My ability to conquer my challenges is limitless; my potential to succeed is infinite.

3.Affirmation 1

4. I trust myself. (Seems so simple but is usually needed most when making difficult decisions!)

5. I kindly ask for help and guidance if I cannot see a better way.

6. Everything that is happening now is happening for the ultimate good.

7.Affirmation 2

8. I press on because I believe in my path.

When you’re feeling unmotivated or unconfident, repeat these affirmations to change your perspective.

What’s your inspiring thought for the day? Please share!

Xx,
Tamera

    Seriously Tamera, this is one of the reasons I love you! Your so inspiring and upbeat! Its such a great example to the world in how to be upbeat and positive and have the right mindset! I post a lot of inspirational or motivational post for others but for myself as well! The first image says ” When One door closes, the next one opens, Let Go & Let God” . The second one is from Harriet Tubman “Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.”

    Thank you Tamera for this!

    This life is not about self but God, we need to look to Him to know how we should live snd build our character to help this lost world…. u are getting caught up with this world, dont believe the lies…postive thinking doesnt save you but theWord of God, His Truth that overcomes all sin and all circumstances

  • Ina Turner

    My motivation each day is a bible verse, one of my favorite is” If God be for me,who can be against me”,and on days that I am feeling overwhelm my verse for days like that is “I can do all things through Jesus Christ who is my strength.” knowing that my God is on my side gives me great peace and confidence to tackle my day.

    Hi, Tamera!

    I really needed this today. I was feeling down and decided to visit your website for the first time because you’re like my all time inspiration, I want to be a strong, Godly, and inspirational woman just like you one day. I started watching snippets of The Real on Youtube and you are by far my favorite. I am a 19 year old Christian female who was trying to decide if I should do the right thing and wait til marriage to have sex. In this world it seems as if that is frowned upon and I actually thought that no man would be able to do that. But it was you, after hearing your story, that gave me the example and assurance that it is possible and women like you do exist. I just admire the way you carry yourself as a woman. And I am working on myself everyday to be just as great. Thank you for being that example for me and I’m sure other young ladies out there.

    Sincerely,
    Milika Van Powell

    Hi I’m a student at Howard University. My time here has been an adventure. Everyday I find a person that inspires me when I am feeling uncertain about something. So, I always remind myself that GOD PLACE ME AT HOWARD FOR A PURPOSE! Everything that I do matters and I am content with myself. I remind myself that if there is something that I don’t feel comfortable with, I try to identify the problem, find alternatives, compare the alternatives, and implement the alternative. Thank you for having this website! Love it!!

  • Your #3 reminded me that we should live by faith and not by sight. No, we may not see the future right in front of us, but God said that he has plans for us. To give us hope and a future. So even when I can’t see success in my future, I know that God doesn’t want me to fail and that if I pursue him, he will have my back. I love your posts, Tamera! You inspire me so much.
