7 Powerful Positive Affirmations to Jump Start the Day

Wouldn’t life be grand if we could say “abracadabra,” snap our fingers and make everything right in the world? If only it were that easy. Positivity doesn’t work that way either and the same applies — to be more positive, we have to work at it to make it stick.


Not everyone is a believer in positive affirmations, but I happen to believe that while they’re not a magic solution, they are very effective. Being more positive means conditioning our mind to focus on the good things and to choose happiness. Life can be rough out there, so a positive affirmation is a good way to snap us back into positivity mode.

Positive daily affirmations work best if we say them early in the morning and if we use them throughout the day. But, and this is an important “but,” we have to also believe them. Try these seven positive affirmations and see how they work for you. Some people prefer to write their own and I for one encourage that, since those we create ourselves tend to work best.

I matter and I am worthy.

I choose faith and hope to fill my mind, body and spirit.

Every day is a fresh start and today, I choose peace, love and positivity.

Happiness is a choice and today and every day, I choose to be happy.

I banish all negativity and in it’s place, I radiate hope and love.

My life is full and I am content and fulfilled.

I am the author of my life story and I have the strength to succeed.

I hope one or all of these benefits you. Being positive does take some effort, but it is well worth it, as we shake off the negative and embrace the positive!
