Reciting positive affirmations for confidence will help you overcome your limiting beliefs.
Have you ever felt so shy or insecure that you ended up doing absolutely nothing to help you go forward in reaching your goals?
SAME! I can completely understand as I tend to struggle with this as well.
When we start to doubt ourselves, it’s important to remember that we hold the power to change that mentality.
Before even starting to work towards what we desire, the first step we must take is to transform our disbelief into self-confidence.
We can achieve this first step through the use of positive affirmations!
What are Positive Affirmations?
Positive Affirmations are phrases that we repeat in order to speak that reality into existence.
The power of our word is absolute magic!
In his book, The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom, Don Miguel Ruiz explains how our word has the power to shape our beliefs.
Our beliefs then shape our perspective of life and that perspective transforms our reality.
As Don Miguel Ruiz stated, our reality is based on how we believe the world to be.
Even if these beliefs stray from the collective perspective, our mindset plays a huge role in crafting how we look at life.
He then continues to state how these beliefs are shaped by words from others and ourselves.
And thus, the first agreement is “to be impeccable with your word.”
By using our words consciously to speak positively, we will see a change in our attitudes and our beliefs.
Reciting positive affirmations for confidence daily will help us manifest whatever we desire.
For more information on manifestation, see my post on the Magic of Manifesting: Turn Dreams Into Reality.
Why Positive Affirmations for Confidence Work!
The more we are exposed to certain scenarios, the more we notice and focus on similar situations.
For example, have you ever went to the bathroom in the middle of the night after watching a scary movie?
This may not be the case for everyone, but I know a lot of my friends and I feel more anxious after we finished watching a horror TV show or videogame.
The same goes for positive scenarios.
When someone you care about tells you how much they appreciate you, the warm feeling you get tends to linger for a moment.
This is where positive affirmations for confidence come in.
By speaking these phrases into existence, we feel the same emotions as what is said.
Even if it’s subtle, we’ll feel it for a brief moment.
And then this is where the repetition makes a difference.
The more we speak positively to ourselves, the easier it becomes to reach the feeling we are trying to achieve.
It’s not easy, especially when our minds are filled with self-doubt.
However, I always say that all thoughts, positive and negative, are the same volume when trapped in your mind.
This is when speaking positively will amplify the volume of your positive beliefs and quiet your negative thoughts.
Your beliefs become your thoughts, your thoughts become your words, your words become your actions, your actions become your habits, your habits become your values, and your values become your destiny.MAHATMA GANDHI
Ways You Can Practice This Strategy
There are various ways you can go about practicing the use of positive affirmations.
Speaking Into Existence
The first being the quickest where you simply state it out loud.
While you read the 25 positive affirmations for a confidence boost below, I encourage you to read them all out loud with intention.
Meditating On These Phrases
You may also recite these affirmations in your mind when meditating.
By allowing other thoughts to drift away and keeping your focus on these affirmations, you enhance your beliefs of self-confidence.
Practicing Mirror Work
Mirror Work is similar to simply stating the phrases out loud, but instead, you speak it to yourself looking at a mirror.
With this, your positive affirmations are enhanced as what you speak out into existence is also quickly reflected back towards yourself.
This technique was established by Louise Hays as an effective way to heal your soul.
I recommend checking out her article detailing what this healing method is all about. See: What is Mirror Work? by Louise Hays.
Record Through Journaling
Have you heard of the popular study tip where writing helps you retain information?
There are even multiple studies about this learning process, and I, for one, love learning using this method as well.
“When writing by hand, our brain receives feedback from our motor actions, together with the sensation of touching a pencil and paper.”Science Daily – Better Learning Through Handwriting
The same goes for focusing on positive affirmations.
By writing them down, you emphasize these beliefs as you memorialize them onto paper.
So go ahead and grab a journal! Write down these positive affirmations for confidence!
