Girl signaling five daily affirmations in life

This is a guest post from an ABC gem, Vernon Layne. He writes about self-improvement and inspiration. In this post, he talks about the daily positive affirmations that you should practice for achieving happiness in life.

If your under-your-breath conversations were monitored for a day, what would that reveal about you?

Would there be a lot of self-talk berating yourself or there would be pep-talk encouraging yourself?

Perhaps there will be some talk back sessions getting the last laugh.

Most of us are careful about what we believe or whom we let into our life. We set limits on whom we listen to.

But for some reason we think we are supposed to believe everything we tell ourselves, right?

Don’t let self-defeating thoughts get the best of you.

Instead, win yourself over with daily positive affirmations.

Why Do You Need Daily Positive Affirmations

The voices of self-criticism in your head sometimes run rampant, draining you of all your positive energy.

When you see yourself in a negative light, you give off the negative energy that affects you mentally and physically. It can lead to health problems.

That is why the opinion of yourself and your circumstances are most important.

It is because they can have a positive or negative influence on not just yourself, but on people around you as well.

Did you know when you are listening and believing your lies, you are practicing insanity?

If I had a survey and asked people to describe insanity, I am sure most would say it is repeating the same mistake and expecting different results.

That is a good way to describe it but is it the best way? Does it tell us how people view themselves? Is it really a definition or just a quote?

During my research, one definition described insane being a state of mind that prevents normal perception, behavior or social interaction.

When Albert Einstein or Ben Franklin, depending on whom you ask, wrote this quote, he was not just referring to external actions but also internal actions that take place in our mind.

Please understand, for every action there is a reaction. Furthermore, behind every action there’s a thought and self-talk.

It is these internal dialogs we have over the years that become our truths.

When reality stares us in the face, and it is not in agreement with what we believe, our perception gets distorted preventing normal perceptions and causes us pain and unhappiness.

The saddest thing about these conversations is that they are usually negative and untrue, and they steal our joy.

That is why it is important we practice telling ourselves positive affirmations daily.

Henry Ford quoted, “whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you are right.”

Think of it this way: You having a build-in alarm that sounds and alerts you when yourself or others have not lived up to your expectations, beliefs and ideas. It sounds when your fixed ideas and reality are opposite polarity.

No matter how many times you have failed or how many mistakes you have made in life. The truth is you are doing better than you feel, and more importantly, you are doing better than you think.

“The unexamined life is not worth living for a human being.” ~ Socrates

How Daily Positive Affirmations Help You

Life and all its challenges can be rough at times and depending on how you respond internally, you can learn happiness in the mist of those rough times.

You are going to struggle constantly if you are not having a healthy conversation with yourself.

Give yourself a break and concentrate on the good things that are happening in your life. Yes, there are good things going on in your life too.

For example, you could start each morning with being thankful as you wake up. That is always a good start, and it is simple. Life is as simple as you see it.

Your feelings follow your thoughts, so finding the time and going through a mental gratitude list will remind you of things you are grateful for.

It will also help you develop a balanced sense of self-esteem and be in agreement with who you really are; a person with assets as well as liabilities.

Defeating negative thoughts before they become your reality and before your emotions send you that alarming sound you are all too familiar with is the best defense against unhappiness.

I’ve come up with five daily positive affirmations that you can tell yourself every morning and start your day on the positive note.

5 Daily Positive Affirmations For Happiness In Your Life

There’s no limit to the amount of power and happiness you can have when you believe these 5 positive affirmations:

Daily Affirmation 1: Today I Have Courage to Walk Through My Fears

Fear is behind many decisions you make or don’t make. They will destroy you mentally, physically and emotionally if you allow them to control your life.

Sometimes they are subtle and attack without you knowing. Perfectionism is a good example of this subtle fear.

Deep within you may feel you are not being exactly what you want or what you think others would like you to be.

So you try harder at being perfect, believing it will bring you happiness and acceptance.

But the shadow of those high expectations cast over you when they are not met. Then you default to doing the only thing you know; try harder.

The first step in defeating fear is accepting the fact that it is there and understanding it is normal. Your fears get stronger the longer you think about them, so redirect your thoughts to something positive.

Do the very thing that you are afraid of doing and your fears will slowly lose its power over you.

Daily Affirmation 2: Today I Forgive Myself and Refuse to be a Prisoner of My Past

Giving and receiving forgiveness is an essential part of discovering happiness.

Why, because it requires you to make peace with yourself, and that is hard when you feel you are the worst person on earth.

However, it is the only road to long-term contentment.

It is impossible to give someone something you do not have. Forgiveness is no different. How can you forgive others when you do not know how to forgive yourself?

Stop being held captive by your feeling. By choosing to forgive yourself you are no longer controlled by bitterness, anger, and resentment.

You will free yourself from the bad things you have done to yourself and others, and others have done to you.

Forgive yourself today, and your negative thought patterns and feeling will change for better. Each time it brings you closer to the person you are meant to be.

Daily Affirmation 3: Today I Seek Personal Growth, and I Will be Open-Minded

Change scares a lot of people. It does not matter if the change is positive or negative.

Some people do not like change and stay closed-minded and stop growing.

While others embrace it and continue improving like my family at Aha!NOW. We are constantly changing and growing. Click here to find out how.

When you are open-minded, you are teachable and can take advantage of what others have to offer from their knowledge and experience.

There’s too much to learn in life to be closed-minded. So humble yourself by remaining teachable and remember, its okay not to have all the answers.

Daily Affirmation 4: Today I Accept and Love Myself

The most valuable thing you can offer yourself and the world is being YOU. To do this, you must accept yourself fully; your assets, flaws, successes, and failures.

This helps you stop comparing your inside with others outside and helps you stop wishing you were someone else.

Instead, compare who you used to be with who you are becoming, and that is a person who strives to be human and not perfect.

Daily Affirmation 5: Today I Believe Everything I am Experiencing is Building Character Within Me

When you face your problems with patience and hope, it strengthens your character.

You’ll stop avoiding them, but welcome them knowing it is another opportunity to gain wisdom.

A positive attitude makes all the difference when facing difficult times.

It helps you see trails as character building blocks of hope, patience, and wisdom – the three essential ingredients for a peaceful and fulfilling life.

How To Practice Positive Affirmation Daily In Your Life

You may be wondering, “How do I implement these 5 positive affirmations into my life?” After all, they are meaningless without action.

First you need to make time. Don’t wait to start your self-examination. Moreover, don’t let obstacles stand in your way.

Set an appointment with yourself to meditate on your feelings and thoughts and write them down.

Next thing you need to do is be honest with yourself by opening your heart and mind about your past and your present circumstances.

You must ask yourself some critical questions. For example, “Is my self-esteem based on what others think of me?” or “Can I forgive myself?”

Denial protects you from your true feeling, but it also prevents you from believing other things like positive affirmations, so be honest as you can with yourself.

Once you see your negative thoughts on paper, ask yourself do you want to keep them or do you want to develop a better perspective. Remember you have a choice.

If you choose the latter then begin to tell yourself these five positive affirmations daily, and you will start experiencing positive actions supporting your new beliefs.

Replacing your old beliefs with new ones is the only way this will work.

“The only thing in the world you can change is yourself and that makes all the difference in the world.” ~Cher

It is simple to obtain what you want in life when you focus correctly.

When you are able to see the connection between what you are telling yourself and the consequence, you’ll be amazed at yourself and enjoy making decisions.

Telling yourself these five positive affirmations daily will help you do just that. They will help you look forward to life’s challenges, knowing that a peaceful and happy life is possible.

    Hi Vernon sir,

    I hope you are doing great. I think I am super late to read this one. Sorry.

    Coming to the post, It was rightly said by Henry Ford. I believe our thoughts define us and our actions delineate us.

    Positive affirmation decrease stress and bring in happiness. 🙂 I loved the #2 as nobody is perfect and we all fall short on some grounds. As the past cannot be changed it can only be forgotten and learned from.

    #4 is spot on! If we can’t accept our flaws and shortcomings we will never be able to accept others too or expect others to accept us as we are. 😀

    The rest of the affirmations mentioned in the post too are refreshing. Thank you so much for spreading positivity Vernon sir. Great post!

    – Rohan Chaubey.

      Hey little buddy,

      No problem I’m supper late responding too. 😀

      I love what you said about the past. A lot of people try hard to learn from it but not that hard in trying to forget it.

      And you’re spot on saying we can’t accept others shortcoming if we can’t accept our own first.

      By the same token, when we learn to look for good within ourselves we start to notice and focus on the good in others.

      Thanks for another great reminder. See you around!

      Hi Dr. Diana,

      People really do want to improve their lives some just don’t know how. That’s why we first must focus on what we can do right now. Because the noises in our mind can consume us and keep us stuck.

      The best way to improve our lifestyle is by action.

      Thanks for stopping by and blessing us.

    Hello, Harleena and Vernon,

    What a beautiful and inspiring article! I just loved it!

    You are absolutely right, we all have the voice of self-criticism which can definitely sabotage our purpose and plan in life.

    I appreciate you making reference to Albert Einstein’s quote about insanity, with regards to what we do, and what takes place in our mind, I fully agree.

    I love number one because I’ve been on a journey to consistently leave my comfort zone each and every day, and this fits right in with that.

    You’ve touched on a real need with number two, and with God’s help in understanding his grace and forgiveness, it is definitely possible. 🙂

    I really like your how-to and will add that Scripture reading and prayer is what gets me grounded and focused for my day. If something causes me to skip this in the morning, it’s not the same at all.

    Thank you so much for sharing this very motivational and inspirational article, Vernon, I really appreciate it. I will be sharing with friends, and hope you have a lovely weekend.

    Take Care,
    – Carol 🙂

      Hello Carol,

      Some bad habits become a part of our daily lives and are a real force that drains us and leave us weary and weak. Self-criticism is the first thing that comes to mind.

      When we try to leave our comfort zone that’s when self-criticism and self-doubt team up on us. These things hider our potential to experience real life. Thanks for pointing that out.

      We truly appreciate you sharing this post with others too. Have a wonderful day!

      Hi Carol,

      Sorry for the late reply, though glad to have made it now 🙂

      Absolutely! Vernon’s written a wonderful post, and I’m so happy you liked it.

      Ah…don’t we all love our comfort zone! But it’s only when we move out of it that we get some really good things done.

      Nothing would work without His grace, and this again, a lot of us tend to forget overtime. A little time for prayers and a one-to-one with the Almighty we all need. Gives us such a peace of mind, isn’t it?

      Thanks for stopping by, we appreciate it 🙂

    Hey,
    I do believe in positive thinking but it is too difficult to practice. I find myself everyday criticizing, demoralizing and fearing to do things I love. The affect of what other say about me is becoming more and more… it is like to me, only thing that matters is what people think about me. And this is certainly self destructive. Such a thing not only leaves me with upset mind but also with an extremely low morale.
    Writing down such things and taking a final decision of whether I want to keep such thoughts in my life or not would help. Thanks for pointing it out. Sometimes all you need is someone to ask you to see the light around yourself.

    • Vernon Layne

      May 4, 2015 at 1:34 pm

      Hi Manpreet,

      I agree with you. The attitude of what others think can become a heavy toll on anyone. I might also add the need to search for happiness when it’s all around us and within us is utterly self destructing as well.

      A lot of times all it takes is for us to see how we think and react on paper then we are able to make better choices. Remember worrying leads to more worrying so embrace who you are.

      May peace be with you.

    Hi Vernon

    What would our live be without positive affirmations. How would we be able to overcome challenges and setbacks with speaking positive things to ourselves?

    This is a greet post and one that should be read over and over again. We need to learn to speak positive thoughts to our soul as this will benefit us and enable to face life challenges easily.

    Thank you for this masterpiece post. Have a nice weekend.

    • Vernon Layne

      May 2, 2015 at 1:15 am

      Hey Ikechi,

      We are a product of our environment. What better way to reprogram ourselves for improvement and overcoming our challenges than spending time with someone who inspires us? Someone like ourselves.

      What would our life be like without positive affirmations is a question we should ask ourselves daily. Our calling in life is to express who we really are.

      Awesome insight!

    Hello Vernon,

    So great to see you at Aha!NOW and just an awesome post!

    I am loving everything.. Every single affirmations you crafted! And especially the #1 and #2.

    It is the fear who drains us out from energy. And results when we don’t get or even notice a little bit, it just ruins it all – to default back to us on the point where we were at before getting motivated.

    I’m addicted to fear. I get feared so easily and do things with the shadow of fear upon me. I am looking at the affirmations and will work on it to make it a morning habit to kill the fear from me.

    Thanks again for this wonderful post!

    ~ Adeel Sami

    • Vernon Layne

      May 1, 2015 at 10:20 pm

      Hi Adeel,

      Just like sacrificing ourselves for everyone one else can drain us; so can fear. We shouldn’t believe everything we hear even in our own mind.

      Don’t hesitate to give yourself a chance to be everything you are capable of being. When fear shows its face speak kindly to yourself and this will lead you to treating yourself kindly.

      Take care and have a wonderful weekend!

    Hi Vernon,

    I have always found that it is these tiny positive affirmations that have helped me get through so many challenges and hard times.

    They are like “magic pills”. Thanks for such an informative and valuable post.

    It has not only confirmed many of my presumptions about positivity and negativity, it has also helped me learn many new things I never knew
    about.

    Thanks again! 🙂

    Have a great day!

      May 1, 2015 at 6:24 pm

      Hi Nisha,

      Yes they are like “magic pills”..:D

      Brilliant point! Not only do they help us get through hard times but they force us to ask ourselves questions like, “Am I being true to myself and my values?”

      It’s questions like that help us measure what we tell ourselves to how we are living. There has to be a good balance daily between the two.

      Thanks for stopping by.

    Positive thinking it is a the best way to follow.
    I am always ready for good things, and from my experience I know it worked perfectly. But I always have a couple scenario just in case if something’s will go other way. In life we have to keep mixture of positive thinking and action.

      Hi Makary,

      I agree we have to keep on moving toward taking positive actions as well.

      Every individual is unique and no two persons will always react the same so having a couple of scenarios just in case isn’t bad.

      My two are accepting and embracing our individualism because it helps me stay sane.

      Have a great day!

      Hi Blessed,

      I can relate to you. When I’m feeling like that I try to find balance in my life. I often find that I’m too critical of myself or I have high expectations that I can’t live up to.

      I hope you can find something in the post that you can relate to and will help you.

      Stay encouraged because you are blessed.

    Hi Vernon,

    Interesting post!
    Well, glad to see you here. 🙂

    First, I’m curious, who’s the girl in the image of this post? LOL 😀

    Yes, yes, I agree with the negative energy. Indeed, we must not allow ourselves to get stuck too long in negative energy. It was not good for our health.

    I love your discussion about fear. Fear is a good thing, if you are afraid to do something, then it deserves to be. There is a term that says “you are brave does not mean you never fear, you are brave because you are doing things that you fear” 🙂

    Yes, I often do positive affirmations every day. I do it to boost my spirit in achieving my dream. 🙂

    Thanks for sharing this with us, Vernon.
    Have a great week ahead!

    Regards,
    Nanda

    • Vernon Layne

      April 30, 2015 at 3:18 am

      Hi Nanda you are too funny. 😆

      Sorry man I don’t know who the girl is but what I do know is there’s good fear and there’s bad fear. For instance if a person holds a gun to me and demands I give him my money that’s a healthy fear so I will give him my money.

      But lets say I wanted to further my education but my mind keeps telling me I’m too old or what if I can’t remember what the instructor is teaching and I end up not going back to school because of my fear of “what if?” Then that’s an unhealthy fear of change.

      Yes it does take a lot of courage to do the things we fear and the more we experience walking through them the more we are willing to change our old way of thinking about them. And that will give us more courage to overcome them.

      Thanks for your inspiring and funny comment. 😀

    Hi Vernon,

    Welcome to Harleena’s blog and what a great topic.

    I’ll agree with everyone else about positive affirmations. I think when you think good, positive thoughts that can definitely help with the way your day can start. I don’t actually do affirmations but I do have a gratitude list that I go through every single morning before I start my day. Just being thankful for what I have and of course for what is yet to come just puts me in a great mood. How can it not? Things could be going in a bad direction but just appreciating what you do have puts a whole other spin on things.

    Love what you’ve shared and the affirmations here. Such a positive and inspirational post. So glad you shared this with the Aha!Now community.

    Hope you all have a wonderful week.

      Hello Adrienne,

      It’s always good talking to you. I’m like you I also take advantage of a gratitude list. Whenever I’m not feeling in a great mood I reflect on how far I have come and a sense of gratitude comes over me.

      But those feelings of gratitude are enhanced by my certainty of the course of my life would have taken if it wasn’t for the miracle of positive affirmations my mother and sister spoke to me daily.

      Outside my home was a world of negative people I encounter to and from school and play.

      When temptation was pulling at me I would reflect on my sister words telling me to be a leader and not a follower or my mother constantly saying I could be anything I want because if there’s a will there’s a way.

      But my gratitude has a voice of its own.

      Thanks my friend!

    Hello Vernon Sir
    Awesome post, the five affirmation provided are great list. If we make an habit and follow this affirmation in our life i don’t think there will be any kind of negativity in our life. It’s very important to make it habit to have positive affirmation in our life.
    Thank You so much

    • Vernon Layne

      April 29, 2015 at 8:29 am

      Hi Yash,

      You are so right! We do need to make it an habit if we want to stop the behaviors that has been ingrained in us since we were children.

      Also we need to ask ourselves better and empowering questions toward happiness. Questions like, “Who’s responsible for my happiness?”

      Lastly, we need to develop a habit of making a conscious effort to enjoy the moment for what it is.

      Thanks!

    Dear Vernon Layne
    when you have been believing negative ones most of the time It’s hard to believe positive affirmations. Follow me, we must repeat them over and over because it’s human nature for us to think about what’s not going right more than what is.
    Thanks and good luck!

    • Vernon Layne

      April 23, 2015 at 4:56 am

      Hi Nick,

      You are so right it is hard when you have conditioned yourself to focus on the negative. But by repeating positive affirmations over and over in your head you can come to believe in them just like you believe the negative ones.

      The reason people continue focusing on the negative after they are aware of it is because of the fear of change and the fear of the unknown.

      Life isn’t about creating yourself, it’s about finding yourself.

      Cheers to positive change!

    Hi Vernon and Harleena, I’m a big believer in positive affirmations and you’ve given us some inspirational ones here. I think of this a lot in sports, how positive affirmations can make a big difference.

    I play racquetball and, like every sport, no one is perfect. But when I miss a shot I try to encourage myself with positive affirmations instead of negative thoughts. I play against people who will say things like, “I’m so stupid!” when they hit a bad shot. You wouldn’t want someone saying that to you, so why would you say it to yourself?

    By using these affirmations you really can be your own best friend. And that’s how it should be.

    Thanks, Vernon, for sharing this with us. And thank you, Harleena, for publishing this on your site. I know this will help many people so I’m sharing it widely.

      Hi Carolyn,

      I never thought how I used positive affirmations too why playing sports. Now that I think about it, that’s what helps me forget the last play and focus on doing better the coming play no matter what I’m playing.

      I’m glad you mentioned us being our own best friend. Many people do destructive things because they can’t stand being alone with themselves. The path to happiness is within oneself.

      I appreciate your comment and have a wonderful day.

      Sorry for replying late…though glad to be here today 🙂

      You’re absolutely right, and I love the fact that sports inspire you in such a way too. I know you love racquetball, and similar to any other sport, you need to lift yourself up each time you don’t make it – nothing else really works. After all, there is always a next time, and you should never give up till you try and keep trying till you succeed. I know my parents always taught us the same.

      Thanks for stopping by, we appreciate it 🙂

    Hi Vernon

    Very energizing post indeed.

    Today morning after getting up I was just thinking how long I would be simply struggling and just struggling without being contented on any level of success with the mantra of do more and do more.

    All of a sudden I got the link of this post in my inbox and clicked on it to read it as I regularly read all the post of this blog so you can say my clicking on your headline was just a routine.

    But once I glanced through the sub-headings of your post I had to change my mind and found it the best one to bring me out from my sinking feelings right then I was facing. So I must thank you for sharing this post.

    All the five affirmations are power syrups to start the day with the firm believe to make it better than the previous and it may continue forever.

    Thanks a lot for sharing such an inspirational post.

      Hi Mi,

      Thank goodness for routines right? Why is it that we can so easily fall into the trap of always wanting more and never being satisfied?

      We find ourselves at times pushing so hard towards understanding everything that we have to slow down and just enjoy the journey. When we do our blessing come from people we didn’t expect them to come from.

      Thanks!

    Hi Vernon,
    I think very high of a person if he or she instigates positivity and wellness in other people’s mind. I respect you sir for doing that. I think positive affirmations are the key towards loving God and his creations.

    The fourth point in which you wrote “Today I accept and love myself”, is just marvellous. That is what shows us that when we love ourselves, we will love this world even more and eventually the world will give us the love back.

    Thank you for this.
    Have a great weekend. 🙂

      You’re spot on Swadhin.

      We’re in a special position to love and help others when we love ourselves.
      And self-acceptance is the solution to many of our problems. It’s that possibility of getting to a better place with ourselves that keeps us going.

      Thanks for reminding us that love goes beyond mere words.

    I always keep the poems “The Man in the Glass” by Dale Wimbrow Jr and the poem “Don’t Quit” -author unknown on me. They really me.

    “The Man in the Glass” reminds me that the one who who really view I should care about is mine. “Don’t Quit” reminds me that I need to never quit.

      Hi Patrick,

      That’s very inspiring! This remind us that optimism is purposely chosing a helpful perception.
      Many of our problems are rooted in forgetting that the one who’s perception matters the most is our own. And when we quit we sell ourselves short.

      Thank you for sharing Pat!
