The good news about affirmations is that they are simple, straightforward, and really help you focus on what is important in your life. What follows are ten powerful affirmations that can help change your viewpoint, provide you with a sense of purpose, and provide the fuel needed to help you achieve your goals.
I Love Myself for Who I Am
This is the highest form of love, though it should not be confused with narcissism. When you love yourself, you grow in the sense of respect and appreciation that are generated from your accomplishments. By building up your confidence, you see yourself in a new light and will be encouraged to go out and accomplish even more. People who love themselves are naturally confidence in their abilities and do not let negative criticism hold them back from achieving their dreams.
I Will Achieve Great Things
The mantra that you are capable of achieving great things is arguably the biggest step towards realizing your dreams. This affirmation brings about focus and vision to your dreams which then attach an emotional resonance which provides the energy to go out and achieve what you want to accomplish. As long as you combine your affirmation with forward motion, you dream will turn into reality if you persist
I Have Energy, Passion, and Joy
Joy starts from within yourself and is something that no one can give you. From the time you wake up in the morning until you go back to bed at night, your life should be one that centers on the energy and passion you have for achieving your goals. So, when you wake up each morning, repeat the affirmation that you have energy, passion, and joy to give for the day and you’ll find yourself motivated even before you eat breakfast. This will help you focus throughout the day so that you can accomplish what you want.
My Soul is Tranquil, My Body is Healthy, and My Mind is Brilliant
Your mind, body, and soul operate as one which means that if any one of the three is suffering from negative emotions or the lack of energy, the other two will be affected. Of course, you can suffer from illnesses and disease which will also affect your mind and soul, but you can use this affirmation to help you grow stronger day by day until your body fully recovers. Once you have all three in place, it becomes far easier to have the energy and motivation needed to make your dreams come true.
Every Event that Happens in My Life is for My Own Good
In essence, all the good and the bad things that happen in your life serve the ultimate purpose of helping you to become better. There are no coincidences, accidents, or victims, but rather they are part of the greater whole that will help you become the person that you are suppose to be. Basically, everything happens for a reason and if you recognize the event for what it is, you can grow stronger from experiencing it.

I Forgive Those Who Have Harmed Me
Forgiveness is one of the toughest things to do, but you must forgive in order to let go of the past.
