Dig deep and discover your potential for leading the kind of life that you really want to live. The power is within you to learn (or unlearn) what you need in order to get to where you want to be. This affirmation will help you wield this power in a positive way.
“Believe in yourself and all that you are. Know that there is something inside you that is greater than any obstacle.” – Christian D. Larson
Own Your Experiences
Today I take my power back, and I’m owning my internal experiences.
We can’t always control what’s happening around us, but we can control how we experience our experiences.
Taking back your power means you’re not letting external experiences control your internal experiences. Other people, circumstances, and events can strongly influence how we feel, but the key to happiness ultimately rests in our own hands.
Begin owning it all by making a declaration:
I am in charge of my happiness.
Today, I am showing up in my own life.
I own the dark feelings.
I own my light.
I choose happiness.
I believe in my ability to make the best out of this day.
I believe in my power to do what I need to do.
I am motivated to do what I want to do.
I can do this.
When you actively affirm to believe in yourself and in the positive possibilities that exist for you, you’re choosing to be led by your dreams rather than being pushed by your problems. You’re choosing not to follow in fear’s footsteps, but to let love guide your next step.
Believe in Opportunity
My potential is vast. My possibilities are limitless. All I need to win is within.
There are endless ways to use this affirmation. The underlying goal is to shift your mindset from one of scarcity to one of abundance. The scarcity mindset declares that there is not enough (love, prosperity, recognition, opportunity, etc.) to go around, and so we become jealous, scared, anxious, spiteful, and depressed.
The abundance mindset, on the other hand, paints a picture of overflowing oneness. We are whole. We can and will experience the fullness of life without fear of being jaded or stripped of peace, happiness, or love. A friend’s success doesn’t take away from ours; it actually amplifies our experience and proves to us that this light which we see in their life is also present in ours.
With enough effort and time, we can learn what we need in order to succeed. All you need to win is within.
Believing in abundance really means that we believe giving is receiving. When we give to life without expectation, it’s like making an energy deposit into the world around us. We earn interest with each deposit. We benefit from giving, thus we are receiving from life when we choose to give to life; giving has a boomerang effect in that it returns to us in an equal or greater proportion.
When another succeeds, do not let it take away from your internal peace. Rather, let their achievements inspire you to believe in your own potential. Life is here for us all.
Believe in Yourself
I am in charge of my happiness.
Repeating this affirmation plants the seed in your mind that you believe in yourself. Think these words. Speak these words. Write these words down on paper. Attach sincere energy and intentional action to these words. Without action, your thoughts will only go so far. Let your thoughts fuel your actions today and the next day.
If we really wanted to be happy, we would practice happiness every single day. If we want something, we must practice it on a consistent basis, before and after we receive that which we desire. Yet if we don’t really want to do something, chances are we won’t, or we won’t put in the energy or time to do it well. Realize that you can do whatever you devote your mind, heart, and soul to.
If there’s something you want to do, believe that you can do it with all your might. It’s easy to think and speak these words (although many don’t even bother), but it’s another things to live the affirmation: Practice, practice, practice.
What can you do today? What tiny step can you take in the direction of your dreams, or what you love, or whatever feeling you wish to feel, or whatever intention you want to see come true? In what small ways can you start handing over your fears to love, your doubt to trust?
- What have you been giving your power and energy to, and are you willing to take that power back and expend that energy on positive visions for your life?
- Is there one part of this affirmation that really connects with you, and how can you put it into practice in your own life?
