Are you ready to boost your confidence? There are tons of reasons why confidence is important. From boosting your job performance by getting extra promotions and raises, to making you a more attractive spouse or partner.
Now the secret to boosting your confidence might surprise you. This particular trick doesn’t involve standing in front of the mirror and practicing your best smile (good though that is).
It’s simply a matter of repeating some affirmations to yourself as you go through your day. Affirmations are like little reminders to yourself that give you a much-needed boost when your confidence is wavering.
I am confident.
Confidence is not something you either have or don’t. It’s a spectrum, and most people tend to float between the ends of it.
It’s a skill that can be developed like any other, with practice and patience. Described as “the ability to trust in your own judgment and capacities,” confidence is often what separates those who are successful from those who are not.
We are more likely to try new things if we believe that we can succeed at them. We’re more likely to attract others if we exude an air of self-assurance.
Others will always feed off of our energy, so if we are confident, they will likely follow suit, allowing for deeper connections with others.
Confidence is also important on a more individual level; believing in yourself makes life easier because you’ll be less concerned about what others think of you—you’ll know that your opinions matter too!
It may take some time to develop confidence in all areas of your life though; here’s where to start:
I am a deserving person.
To be deserving is to have a right to something. It is an entitlement or the confidence that you deserve something because you earned it.
You are a deserving person if you believe you are. Once you believe yourself to be deserving, your life begins to reflect this belief. You will begin to attract more of what you deserve into your life as your self-confidence grows.
How do I know if I am a deserving person?
If you have ever had even one good thing in your life, then you know those good things can happen for everyone.
In fact, good things happen all the time – but sometimes we don’t notice them because our focus is elsewhere.
If there has ever been anything nice in your life – one kind word from a stranger or friend; an unexpected blessing; or any wonderful thing – then know that those same beautiful things can happen again and again, and they will continue happening for as long as you let them in!
People like me.
You are a good person.
We all like to think we’re good people, and most of the time, we are. We try our best not to hurt people. We try to be kind and thoughtful.
But sometimes, our self-worth suffers when something bad happens to us, or we find it difficult to feel confident when surrounded by people who have more than us.
This can ultimately lead us into negative thinking patterns that hold us back from reaching our full potential.
Self-esteem is how we value ourselves in relation to others—how much pride and confidence we have in ourselves when compared with others who seem more successful than us.
It’s important to remember that no one has any real control over what other people think about them; however, each person does have control over their own thoughts and feelings about themselves.
I have everything I need for success.
While most affirmations focus on what you will do or what you will have in the future, this affirmation reminds you that you have everything that you need to achieve your goals.
You don’t need to acquire anything else before you start, nor is there any sort of power outside of yourself. You have the power and it’s time to use it.
I can do this.
Life often gets in the way of our personal growth. If you’re feeling low, or even just a little unsure of yourself, try using some affirmations to help you get back on track!
Here are just a few examples:
- I can do this.
- I have the power to succeed.
- I can do anything I set my mind to.
It’s okay if I don’t know how to do it yet.
You don’t need to know how to do everything. Life would be boring if we knew how to do everything, and where would the fun be in that? Doing new things requires not knowing how, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still do them. Not knowing how is a part of the process! Being good at something means spending time learning it.
It’s okay if you don’t know how to do it yet. There are so many ways for you to learn and grow, including reading, watching videos, or asking others for help. It doesn’t have to be a formal instruction; your family members can teach you as well! You can also find support in communities made up of people who share similar interests or experiences as you.
I am loved.
With powerful lyrics such as: “I am loved, I am loved. I know it every time my heart beats.” and “You are love, you are love. You can feel it when the wind blows,” this song reminds us that we are not alone in this world.
The people who surround you care about you and want what is best for you, even if they do not tell you or show it all the time.
This can be seen with your family, friends, and co-workers. For example, your family may fight or argue with one another but deep down inside they do love each other and want what is best for each other. Also, God loves all of His children as well as everyone on Earth!
Remembering that we are loved by God can help us find more self-confidence because we know that we have unconditional love from God!
Finally, listen to this song whenever you need a reminder of yourself about how much you are loved by others!
I am capable.
You are capable of great things.
Others believe in you and your abilities. You know you can do anything you set your mind to. There is no obstacle too big for you to overcome.
You have the ability to make a difference and the ability to do great things. You are capable of being successful and achieving dreams that others can only imagine.
I am smart.
Our beliefs about ourselves are incredibly powerful, so it’s crucial that we replace negative thoughts with positive ones. Try repeating the following affirmations daily for a month and see what happens! (They’re also good to read over when you’re in need of a confidence boost).
I am smart.
I am capable. I deserve the best in life.
My intelligence is as high as I believe it to be.
My intelligence is higher than I think it is. My intelligence is higher than I feel it to be right now.
I have the potential to do anything I want with my life.
I choose to believe in myself.
You choose to believe in yourself. You make a conscious decision to trust in your own skills, talents, and abilities.
You know that believing in yourself leads to greater success, more satisfaction, and higher self-esteem. These powerful confidence affirmations will help you make the right choice.
My best is good enough.
Let’s say you’re starting a new job. You make an honest attempt at doing your best, but what does that really mean? Is your best good enough? Can it be even better?
In the real world, there are numerous factors that will impact what is considered to be “good enough.”
For instance, if you worked in the same industry as a boss, he or she might prefer the work of someone else.
If they have a positive opinion of this person, they may say (perhaps not out loud) that their own employee’s work is good enough.
So what is good enough for one person is not necessarily good enough for another.
For many people like myself though, I don’t have to worry about that because my own definition of good enough is pretty easy and straightforward.
In fact, it’s just five words: My Best Is Good Enough (MBIGE). MBIGE simply means that I am confident in my abilities and abilities only go so far unless coupled with hard work and determination to improve on them – which can begin right now and are completely up to me.
I am stronger than my fears
Fear is natural. Fear keeps us safe, motivates us to grow, and makes our lives more exciting. But fear can also hold you back from achieving your dreams or making healthy changes in your life.
Maybe you’re afraid of leaving a bad relationship or standing up for yourself at work. Maybe you’re afraid of trying something new or traveling alone. Or maybe you’re just struggling with low self-esteem because of a negative experience in your past.
Regardless of what scares you, the truth is that fear does not have to control your life! You are in charge of your own mind, and the power to overcome fear comes from within. When we can accept our fears as part of our human nature and choose not to let them stop us from moving forward, then we will find ourselves free to live bigger and better lives than ever before! All it takes is recognizing when we’re being held back by fear—and then following through on that recognition with action despite being scared–to begin living more confidently today!”
I can achieve everything I want
- You can do literally anything you set your mind to. Don’t let anyone convince you otherwise.
- Your power is UNLIMITED. If you believe in yourself, then you have no limits at all.
- Not only can you achieve success, but you will achieve success by believing in yourself and your abilities.
- You are a powerful and inspiring speaker! The world needs to hear what you have to say, so don’t ever hold back!
- If there is something that makes you feel afraid or insecure, remember that YOU are stronger than those fears—and if you need help, then ask for it from someone who loves and supports you!
I can do anything I set my mind to
Ultimately, the most important thing is to believe in yourself. The world around you is made up of things that are either helping you reach your goals or in the way of them. If you only see obstacles, then it’s impossible for you to develop a growth mindset and accomplish anything with confidence. Confidence comes from believing that everything always works out for the best, so whenever something does go wrong, fall back on to what has worked for you before and always be aware that there are solutions out there that will help overcome any obstacles.
Don’t let life become too hard; instead, rely on your own inherent capabilities so that even if something goes wrong and puts you down, you can find a way back up again. At heart, everything falls into place like clockwork in an orderly fashion if you just continue striving towards your goals with love and belief.-
My power is unlimited
Everyone has unlimited power. You have the power to do anything, overcome your fears, achieve any goals you set for yourself, influence other people and change your life. You have the power to create the life you want.
When you doubt yourself, there is no one else who can improve your thoughts but yourself. Confidence affirmations are statements that aim to increase your confidence in a situation or activity where there is a possibility of failure. Your subconscious mind responds positively when it hears positive affirmations repeatedly.
I can overcome any fear if I set my mind to it.
You can overcome any fear if you set your mind to it. Fear is a limiting emotion, and it prevents you from achieving your goals. It’s important to face your fears, as this will help free up the energy you usually spend on being fearful or worrying about what other people think of what you’re doing. Push yourself to achieve more and don’t let fear hold you back from your dreams. Believe in yourself and don’t worry about what other people are doing. Don’t be afraid to fail.
I am a powerful, inspiring speaker who uplifts everyone I talk to.
When you have to give a presentation in class or even just introduce yourself to someone new, it’s easy to feel self-conscious.
You may become intimidated by everyone else’s confidence and feel like you aren’t good enough. But the truth is, everyone feels this way sometimes! Confidence is something that is built over time, and with some practice, it’s possible to feel more confident.
Practicing confidence affirmations out loud can help you build your confidence and change your mindset. Try saying these confidence affirmations to yourself before any big event!
- I deserve respect.
- I am worthy of happiness.
- I am resilient: I face my problems with ease.
- I am confident in myself and my abilities.

Loving yourself and believing in yourself is powerful
Confidence affirmations are powerful ways to remind yourself of your worth and help you achieve your goals. Positive affirmations work by changing the negative thoughts you have about yourself into positive ones.
This can be difficult, especially if you’re used to being critical of yourself, but over time it gets easier.
One way to do this is by listening to your own thoughts and identifying the ones that aren’t helpful. If a certain thought makes you feel bad about yourself, replace it with a more positive one and repeat it until it becomes second nature.
Another important part of confidence affirmations is gratitude: appreciate all the things in your life that make you happy and grateful to be alive!
Another way confidence affirmations can help is by reminding us that we are worthy of love just as we are; if someone else said or did what you say or do to yourself, would they still deserve love?
You deserve love too! Confidence affirmations can encourage us to see ourselves as valuable even when we don’t feel our best.
One last tip for confidence affirmations: be kind! Self-care isn’t selfish – taking care of ourselves means we need less from others (and vice versa).
Plus some self-care activities like meditation can reduce stress levels which will boost our immune system’s ability to fight off infections such as colds or flu viruses during cold/flu season (which coincides with school exams)!
These confidence affirmations are bound to boost your self-esteem the next time you find yourself experiencing a dip. If you’re still having trouble being confident enough, remind yourself that everyone feels unsure about themselves sometimes.
Instead of tearing others down, have a moment of silence for them and their own insecurities. Treat them with compassion and understanding, and remember that you are worthy of love and support—from within as well as from other people.
