You might be wondering how to create affirmations for self-esteem in order for them to bring you tremendous positive changes and to take you to the next level in life. Well girl, I’ve got your back!

At first, I was a little bit sceptical about this whole concept. Many unwanted thoughts used to run through my mind everyday and I had absolutely no power over them. I mean, how could I if I was only focusing on bringing myself down?

I’ve tried many exercises to boost my productivity and to improve my state of mind. They did work to some extent but the power of creating affirmations unlocked two things that I was longing for: financial independence and freedom!

Curious to create your own affirmations for self-esteem? LET’S GET STARTED 💛

“I’m better than I used to be. Better than I was yesterday. But hopefully not as good as I will be tomorrow”

What will affirmations do for you?

Actually, this concept is not as complicated as it might seem. All of your thoughts and perceptions are based on other people’s opinions. Mind blowing, right? Your mind has built itself taking into account everything you’ve once heard or seen. Also, the things you repeatedly told yourself are now the affirmations that run through your mind.

The great thing is that only YOU have the power to change them.

By constantly repeating some well thought affirmations, you will manifest exactly what you wish for. Remember those lyrics ‘remember what you wish for ’cause you just might get it’? That’s EXACTLY what is going to happen!

Being able to change your thoughts only leads you to living a better, more abundant life. My productivity started to rise and in a blink of an eye I was able to achieve my goals faster than I thought it was possible.

Let’s see how to create affirmations for self-esteem that WORK.

“All of my thoughts, feelings and emotions are in my control”

How to compose affirmations?

In order for the process to work, I usually follow some crucial steps in composing my affirmations. When you write down these phrases, you will first have to believe them. If you don’t have faith and your “wishes” are unbelievable, the power of the manifestation will never evolve.

Also, I always write my affirmations in past tense or present. ‘I loved working on this project and having achieved X, Y, Z makes me feel like I have conquered the world’.

Another important “rule” I like to follow is to use a positive language. For example, instead of saying : “I am not sick” you’ll have to write: “I am happy and healthy.”

“Creative energy surges through me and leads me to new and brilliant ideas.”

The process

How many times will I have to repeat these phrases before they start to do their magic? Oh, quite a few times 🙂 I like to write them down on colourful post-its and to stick them somewhere visible.

I repeat every single one of them for about 3 to 5 times each, once a day, usually before bed!

Are you still with me, right?

The great thing about seeing them so many times is that every time you read them, your confidence and self-esteem boost. These colourful pieces of paper bring me such a great vibe when I look at them. They even started to become a little part of who I am.

Being able to control my thoughts is one of the things I am most grateful for.

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

A list with affirmations you can use

Of course, it was quite hard at first to find the inspiration to create affirmations for self-esteem. As the time passed, I created a list with the phrases that worked best for me. Actually, that usually work best for everyone because they are quite generally available.

Inspire yourself from my list:

1. I accept myself as I am right now.

2. I am at peace with where I am at the moment.

3. I am enough!

4. I achieve all of my goals!

5. I am able to follow my heart!

6. I am proud of my work and my accomplishments!

7. I choose to see the positive in every aspect of my life!

8. I nourish my body, mind and soul!

9. I add value to the world around me!

10. I love challenges and I am ready to bring out the best in me!

11. I am productive and confident!

12. I carry strength and resilience with me!

13. I am empowered to create change in my life!

14. I believe in myself and in my abilities!

15. Beneath my exterior is a soul that deserves to be honoured!

In the end, just go with the flow! What could go wrong? Start to create affirmations for self-esteem and discover a new and better version of yourself! Control your thoughts and reach success on the way! YOU are able to do anything you want to, all you have to do is to have a little faith.

What are the affirmations that worked best for yourself and how is this exercise helping you out? Let me know and let’s track our journeys together!

Confidence wasn’t something that I was born with; not at all. I think that during secondary school bullying definitely affected how I felt about myself. It wasn’t just bullying that made me feel unconfident though; it also had to do with the fact that I was different and not really fitting in from my point of view. Luckily for me (and you today), I realised something that made me 100% more confident than I was. Keep on reading to find out what it was!

My life growing up was really fun I would say, but during a year or two in secondary school I was struggling a little bit with my mental health, especially the way I was seeing myself. I am sure that a majority of you have dealt with bullying or bad jokes in school. Looking back now, it’s not a big deal, but for a kid it’s a HUGE deal because at that age we don’t know who we are and what is our potential. We won’t even listen to our family’s kind words, all we seek is the bully’s approval. However, it stopped at some point and I was able to feel happy that finally I can enjoy my life which was really beautiful anyways! I started analysing myself even more and basically, I was feeling doubtful in myself because actually I was NOT fitting in. I was different. I had a different fashion style. I was an extrovert. I had opinions. I enjoyed different things. And that, affected me a lot. It was like, everything that I was doing had more consequences for me than for everybody else. Was I skipping school because I had a real reason? Andrada is in trouble now. Was I talking to someone during a class? Andrada got kicked out for 20 minutes.  Everyone else could go unnoticed, but not myself. WHY?

Being always present and having a good relationship with lecturers meant that my actions were supervised really closely. Was that a bad thing? Absolutely not. They cared. I realised that being different is not a bad thing. Some people liked me, some didn’t. At least I was authentic and people who wanted me to succeed were supporting me, including the lecturers. Funny, but I only realised this in my last year of high school when actually lecturers were listening to my opinion and appreciating me for who I am & how hard I study. Take it like this, you need to get to know yourself, what you’re capable of and let others know it as well. If you don’t trust yourself, no one will. I finally learnt that gaining attention wasn’t a bad thing and realised I need to turn that in my favour. I gained a certain influence in class too. That massively helped me.

Your turn now!

Be authentic

It’s being written everywhere and you’re probably BORED out of your mind. Trust me, being authentic is really important in a world where people can be really fake and sometimes not because they want to, but because they’re afraid to be themselves. Be who you are because by knowing who you are, you nail down your strengths and start to grow your confidence. Starting point: write down 10 things you really like about yourself and celebrate your own self! It’s such a confidence booster!

Believe in your power to be successful

If you believe in your power to succeed and actually achieve all your plans, your mind will send great signals to the universe and you’ll be one step closer to the end goal. Not only that, but your confidence levels will go to the roof. You’ll start talking with such passion about your projects and start to believe in yourself more and more!

Enjoy the attention!

With such confidence levels, expect people to be curious. They will start asking you all sort of questions from good intentions ones to some uncomfortable ones just because they can. Learn how to respond to each type of question and enjoy people’s attention. Again, people will be curious, but you shouldn’t let their opinion influence the way you think about your projects or even about yourself. Don’t listen to nasty comments and be happy for people who support you. You’ll be so much more confident!

Influence others with your confidence…

Turn their attention in the direction you decide. Confident people inspire other people and influence them in different ways. Have you noticed how someone who just started a business has a vast knowledge in the subject? They can easily use that to influence others in many areas and gain their respect. Always speak about your projects or plans with great knowledge (don’t boast) and let your actions speak louder than your words. People will see you’re smart and really driven. They will respect and value your opinion. Obviously, your end goal is not to prove everyone your potential, but this will inevitably happen sooner or later.
