28 Self-Esteem and Self-Image Affirmations

Today’s Thought:

“Relentless, repetitive self talk is what changes our self-image.”
~ Dennis Waitley

Few things about us are more closely linked to our thinking than our self-image. Someone’s belief about who he or she is can make the anorexic feel fat, the average athlete a star, and the beautiful girl see herself as an ugly duckling. When it comes to this topic thinking, not reality, rules.

The famous scientist Dr. Maxwell Maltz, the creator of Psycho-Cybernetics stated it plainly, “The self-image is the key to human personality and human behavior. Change the self image and you change the personality and the behavior.”

Today I am featuring affirmations focused on giving your self-esteem, self-image, and body image a boost. These affirmations are written for people at various stages of self-acceptance. Not all of them will apply to you. Pick the ones that resonate with you.

34 Entrepreneur Affirmations

Today’s quote:

“An entrepreneur tends to bite off a little more than he can chew hoping he’ll quickly learn how to chew it.”
~ Roy Ash, Co-founder Litton Industries

A hundred years ago many of our ancestors were business owners – entrepreneurs, craftsmen, farmers, or professionals. Slowly, we began transition into a society of corporate employees. By the 1980s, Wal-Mart was putting the final nail in the coffin of main street small businesses and we became largely a corporate culture.

Then the Internet was born and there was a resurgence in entrepreneurship. That trend found new meaning as the world sunk into a global depression in 2008. Today more and more people are connecting with their entrepreneurial roots and realizing that their future and their financial security relies on their own efforts. Fewer and fewer people are willing to put their fates in the hands of institutions, including corporations.

We won’t see the end of cube farms any time soon, but everyday more people are waking up to the power within them to control their own destiny.

These affirmations are for the people who get up every day, bite off more than they can chew, and make it work.

Success Affirmations

Today’s Quote:

“I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed.”
~ Michael Jordan

The dictionary defines success as “the favorable or prosperous termination of attempts or endeavors. The attainment of wealth, position, honors, or the like.”

That may be the technical definition. And in our culture, calling someone a success often does imply some kind of financial attainment. Yet, I cling to the idea that “being a success” is a very individual thing.

Mahatma Gandhi did not attain financial heights and yet he was certainly a success. Jesus, Buddha, Martin Luther King; the world is full of figures who made tremendous contributions to the advancement of humanity and must be called a successes.

There are probably as many definitions of success as there are people. Your definition does not have to fit what the world says success is. You are free to create your own definition and I encourage you to do just that. I also encourage you to assertively move in the direction of what you call success and experience the enormous sense of accomplishment and fulfillment that is found my claiming yours!

Here are some success affirmations to help you along the way.

  1. Success is the natural outcome of me being truly me!
  2. I am a success magnifier! As my success grows, so does that of the people around me!
  3. Give me an inch of opportunity and I’ll convert it into a mile of success!
  4. Today I am sharing my talents with a world thirsty for what I have to offer. Success is mine!
  5. Today my talent and determination are a winning combination for success!
  6. As sure as the Sun comes up, my inner winner shows up and brings me to success!
  7. I’m at the top of my game and success is mine!
  8. As I learn to celebrate my successes, they come one after the other!
  9. I’m in this race to win! Today nothing stands between me and my finish line!
  10. Today my thoughts set the stage for success and my actions assure it!
  11. Today my excuses for failure are replaced by my reasons to succeed!
  12. Today I handle my doubt and fears and become the success I know I am!
  13. I create as much success as I am willing to believe in. Today I believe big!
  14. Today is my day. My successes are expanding and multiplying.
  15. My world is what I make of it and today I make it a successful place to be!
  16. I am pushing forward to new successes. Success is now part of my DNA!
  17. Right here and right now I am punching my ticket to the top!
  18. I am a thought leader in my field. I’m always innovating for success!
  19. I love the rush of success. I keep doing the things I need to do to experience success over and over in my life.
  20. Today I am bursting through barriers on my way to a successful day!
  21. Today I am ready, willing, and able to take my success to the next level!
  22. My life is an ocean of opportunity. I am riding the waves to unprecedented success!
  23. My success is my bliss and my bliss is my success!
  24. The winds of hope and determination fill my sails, as I set course for another success!
  25. I am determined! I am committed! I am successful!
  26. My goals, my dreams belong to me. I own them and today they are mine!
  27. I listen to and emulate successful people. As I do, my successes multiply.

Your Truth, Their Truth

Today’s Affirmation:

I am transforming judgment into understanding. I am the source of change in my life, in my group, and in this world.

intolerance_collageHow you see the world is really a matter of perspective. Your absolute conviction in the truth as you see it, can be absolutely rejected by the next person with the same absolute conviction. When these views collide conflict often ensues. That is, when we insist upon our way or no way.

The fact is that we are beings living in a world that none of us completely understands. We can hide that fact beneath layers of belief in some ideology, religion, or even scientific certainty. The fact remains; we never have all the facts to pass the judgment we are often too ready to pass upon others.

In a world being shrunk by technology and proliferating civilization ending weapons, we might be wise to take stock. Given our permanent state of uncertainty, maybe, just maybe, we should think about giving the other guy a break.

This can be as simple as, “live and let live.” You don’t have to agree with the other person. You don’t have to endorse their behavior. You simply have to understand that you can never completely understand his or her perspective and he or she can never completely understand yours.

Narrow-mindedness and tribal group-think were luxuries humanity has lived with, despite the brutal consequences, throughout its history. We have reached the point now where it is about to the break budget for our survival on this planet.

Saddest of all, there are forces on this planet who have powerful control over information outlets and government who thrive and profit by stirring the conflict that generates wars and foments hatred. They have played the masses like a fiddle to keep us divided and powerless. For our world to take the next steps, the people must see the manipulators for who they are and negate their ability to lead us around by our collective noses.

The alternative, should we persist in our unwillingness to take this approach in world affairs, is the destruction of us all. Who will be right then?

Albert Einstein is famously quoted as saying, “The world’s problems will not be solved by the level of thinking that created them.” We are a world in desperate need of a new level of thinking. We need a level of thinking that is not so sure of our group’s perfection and the other group’s evil. We need a level of thinking that sees people as the human beings they are and not subhumans summed up by the term “them”.

We have the power to change our perspective and mend our ways. We can and we must! We have it within us to say, “enough”. It all begins with “live and let live”. Until we are willing to do it, we walk on dangerous precipices.

Back in 2003, I wrote the following simple dialogue between a student and his teacher to illustrate this point to a friend during a discussion. I used a non-human thing to take the emotion out of it and help focus on the concept.

Student: Master, why do people not seek truth?

Master: People do seek truth, but they confuse personal truth with universal truth.

Student: Master, what is the difference?

Master: Do you see the rock over there?

Student: Yes, Master, I see the rock.

Master: How are you different from the rock?

Student: Master, I have intelligence and wisdom. I can change and grow. I offer more value to the world than the rock.

Master: So you are more important than the rock?

Student: Yes, Master, I believe I am.

Master: What do you think the rock thinks of you? Do you think the rock sees its place in the universe as more important than yours?

Student: Perhaps, Master, but that is the rock’s point of view.

Master: Ahh, your truth puts you at the center of the universe. The rock’s truth puts it at the center of the universe. WHOSE TRUTH IS CORRECT?

Student: Master, I know not.

Master: When you have attained universal truth you will no longer be concerned with my question. You and the rock will live in harmony rather than conflict; he with his truth and you with yours.

Stay inspired! Live your truth and allow others to live theirs.

Dreaming While Awake

Today’s thought

“Most people think dreams are only experienced when sleeping. A few enlightened souls recognize that dreams happen only when we become fully awake.”

Of course, our awakening occurs gradually over the course of our life or lives (depending on your belief). Some days it’s two steps forward and three steps back. Some days the chaos and the noise around us obscures the mountain summit.

However, the more we commit to our own awakening; the more we make it the focus of our lives; the more clearly our dreams come into view. We seem to be treading water, treading water, treading water, and then one day we realize we have slipped right into living our dream.

There is a kind of unconsciousness about the last step that allows us to ease right into a life we only, well, “dreamed” about.

Today, no matter what physical or psychological weather you face in your life; keep treading and keep your dream in focus.

Sleep is for rest. Our dreams are meant to be experienced with eyes wide open.

Follow your bliss. Experience your bliss. Become your bliss.

28 Belief Affirmations and Original Quotes

Today’s Thought:

“What belief can achieve is beyond belief.”

~ Ray Davis

Belief is a big word with many possible connotations. There is belief in God or a higher power. There is belief in certain principles. There is belief in yourself.

I have found in my life that no other belief really works for you until you do believe in yourself. No belief system is a substitute for believing in yourself. Every belief system works better for you when you DO believe in yourself.

Neither God nor government nor science nor education can help someone who does not believe in himself. These affirmations and original quotes are written to reinforce your belief in yourself by reminding you that there are mighty forces moving on your behalf. And, to remind you that you have the power, indeed the obligation, to consciously choose your beliefs.

  1. I am ready, willing, and able to take my life to the next level! Today I DO!
  2. The fire ignited by one moment of belief can burn down a forest of doubts.
  3. Today I conceive. Today I believe. Today I achieve.
  4. Every event, every relationship, every circumstance in my life is working for my benefit.
  5. A better me, a better life lies just on the other side of my belief in it.
  6. Every unquestioned, untested belief in your mind is result of someone’s conditioning you. Resolve to think for yourself.
  7. Others can count me out, but my belief is the only thing that counts!
  8. WHATEVER I need ALWAYS comes my way.
  9. I AM capable of great thoughts and great actions that transform my life and make a difference to the world.
  10. It’s not the mountain I conquer, but myself. I’m reaching for the top of the mountain and my day in the Sun is here!
  11. Once we question and confirm our beliefs, they treasures to guide us for a lifetime.
  12. Today my whisper becomes a shout! I CAN! I CAN! AND I AM!
  13. Until we stop and consciously choose our beliefs, we are simply living
    someone else’s version of life.
  14. The force that ignited the Universe and breathed life into it lives within me right now.
  15. The doors that I need to open always open for me. Today is my day!
  16. We are not inadequate by nature. We are inadequate by conditioning. Conditioning can be changed.
  17. Today I am sharing my talents with a world thirsty for what I have to offer.
  18. Good things are happening for me. My life is moving in positive directions.
  19. My success and happiness are belief-driven, not event-driven!
  20. As my trust and belief grow, the miracles multiply in my life!
  21. Until I question my beliefs, they are just someone else’s programming. Today I consciously choose my beliefs.
  22. Whoever is shaping your beliefs, is shaping your destiny.
  23. I shape my beliefs and I shape my destiny!
  24. Conditioning is when you believe because others have said it’s so. Empowerment is when you believe based on your experience.
  25. My experiences drive my beliefs and I consciously choose the beliefs that make sense for me!
  26. There is no dream too big to dream only a mind too doubting to believe. Keep your dreams big and your thinking bigger.
  27. To believe you’ve seen it all before, is to blind yourself to new opportunity.
  28. You can choose to believe or not believe. Either way, you get the life that flows from that decision.
  29. Believe your world is one way and it is. Believe it is another way and it is.

Stay inspired! You are the engine of your dreams!
