Positive Affirmations vs Negative Self Talk: How To Speak  

Positive affirmations are the good statements that describe a desired situation or goal. You can speak daily positive affirmations to yourself repeatedly until they are impressed in your subconscious mind.

This process causes your mind to work on your behalf, to make the positive statements come true.

Easy as ABC.

Have you ever felt lost in your world of low self esteem? I know I have.

Negative self-talk can bring down your perspective on life – if you allow it.

If your current way of thinking is self-defeating, here are some positive affirmations to motivate you to look at things from a different perspective.

This post will come in two parts, A-L then M – Z.

  1. I love this. Just the positivity I need to get over my Monday blues.

  2. Being positive is very important in anyone’s life as it not only affects physical health but mental too. I try to avoid the company of those people who creates a negative aura around myself and demotivates me!

  3. I love these positive affirmations. Sometimes, the difference between having a good or a bad day actually depends on what you say to yourself when you are alone. It really is important to love one’s self and to fill our hearts and minds with only the good stuff. It might be a tad difficult letting go of past hurts, regrets, or bad experiences, but it will all be for the good in the long run. Thanks for sharing this. I need these affirmations from time to time. Have a lovely week ahead! ^_^

  5. Sheri, yes I do! I make my own positive affirmations – usually it’s something that I want specifically put in the present tense. For instance, “Thank you universe that I am earning xxx every month.” This is the prescribed way following the Law of Attraction. Sometimes it’s difficult to do this daily especially when things aren’t going my way, but I believe it helps me focus on what I want and plant little seeds of gratitude every time I visualize the affirmations already happening in my life.

    1. Yes Katherine! You are so right! Sending good thoughts out into the universe along with your wants, will bring those things directly to you! Have a wonderful Sunday filled with positive affirmations!

      Posted on November 20, 2016 at 07:14
  6. I love your alphabet list of affirmations! Being grateful is the start for us to have an inner peace within our own selves. I have done it before and it really produced great results. I have also read about “The Secret” by Rhonda Byrne. It talks about law of attractions. Definitely if we will just continue to give attention to more positive things than those of negatives one, we will discover how wonderful a life can be.

    1. I agree with you Ana Rose! The way positive affirmations works in line with the universe will attract wonderful things into our lives and push out the negatives.

  10. It is highly important to empower yourself with positive self-talk because it helps you reach your highest potential and achieve success. Positive thinking makes your life look brighter and promising! Amazing post!

    Posted on November 19, 2016 at 13:00
    1. You are so right Euge Nia! I agree with you 100%.

      Posted on November 20, 2016 at 07:19
  11. This is inspiring. Unfortunately, not always easy to do in real life but has reminded me that I should be more positive. These affirmations will motivate me and I will not be so self critical. It is vital to empower others and encourage their achievements too! A good post for a dreary November day. Thank you 🙂

  12. Often before I study for example biology I feel like I can’t do that or even caught myself saying what’s the point? But with chemistry I know I can, and even if it’s harder than the biology I master it perfectly. So, I completely agree with you. We shouldn’t allow negativity to control our lives, because it will if we don’t do something about it.

    Posted on November 19, 2016 at 09:04
  13. I need to be intentional about starting my day on a good note. Thank you for these “easy to implement” positive affirmation tips.

    Posted on November 18, 2016 at 23:57
  14. I absolutely cannot stand negativity! Positivity is key to living a stress free life.

    Posted on November 18, 2016 at 18:03
  15. l love this post! That “H” is really something I need to focus on right now. I really have to focus more on the positives and let go of the negative. That would be EXTREMELY beneficial for me.

    Posted on November 18, 2016 at 13:11
  16. Yes! I love all about this post! Amazing work! <3 I would love to recommend: http://www.louisehay.com/affirmations

    Posted on November 18, 2016 at 09:48
  17. Yes, I so agree! I try to always think positively because it takes less energy. I am SO with you on D.

    Posted on November 18, 2016 at 09:03
  18. Great post! And a great reminder for me. I love the Keep Going. Things will get better, in the end, don’t they? (;

    Posted on November 18, 2016 at 07:11
  19. This is a great, great, great activity of gratitude and positive affirmations! I love the G for “guidance.” We moved to a super, small town and my husband is wrapped up in his 1st year of studying for medical school. Of COURSE I will go to him if I feel like I’m about to emotionally break down, but I also don’t want to worry him or distract him for the small things. G for Guidance is helpful because I need to remember there are so many people to turn to – even if they’re not physically present!

    Posted on November 18, 2016 at 06:34
  20. This is a great post! I agree with everything. The two things that have worked best for me have been empowering myself and detoxing my life. I’ll be sure to share this with my clients.

    Posted on November 18, 2016 at 05:06
  21. Beautiful,thank you for sharing!
    I think I like ‘K’ best — always keep moving, everything would pass.

    Posted on November 18, 2016 at 04:33
  22. That are great point to keep positive thinking. Thanks for sharing

    Posted on November 18, 2016 at 03:00
  23. Love your quoted text ‘Hold on to the positives – Let go of the negatives’. Always something I live by. Think about and strive for the future instead of dwelling in the past. Great photography too!

    Posted on November 18, 2016 at 02:26
  24. I like D! Detoxing toxic people! Sometimes it’s hard to let go of people, especially if they’ve been in your life for a long time despite the fact that they are doing more harm than good!

    Posted on November 18, 2016 at 02:21
  25. self-forgiveness – now there is a concept I sometimes struggle with. I hold myself to a high standard, and when I fall short, I tend to be merciless with myself. Not a good thing, Thanks for the reminder to be kinder to myself. Blessings!

    Posted on November 17, 2016 at 18:04
  26. I like A, D, J & M. Like Gil Renard once said, “positive things happen to positive thinkers!”

    Posted on November 17, 2016 at 07:52
  27. This is a great post for today. Especially when your feeling down. Be kinder to yourself…..I’ll try to remember this one. Thanks x

    Posted on November 16, 2016 at 07:30
  28. G for me Sheri somtimes I need all the help I can get. My lack of confidence can show through because of this, so I need that support. Great post I’m going to download your A to Z now.

    Posted on November 16, 2016 at 03:58
    1. Thank you so much Debbie. I am glad you enjoyed the post and that the A to Z can get you motivated and inspired. Positive affirmations should be a daily habit, I am working on this constantly. 🙂 Have a great weekend. S.

      Posted on November 18, 2016 at 14:45
  29. I love this, I may have to jot these down in my planner as a reminder if that’s ok?:)

    Posted on November 16, 2016 at 03:49
    1. Sure, jot it down, pin it, or bookmark it! Anyway that helps you! 🙂

      Posted on November 16, 2016 at 05:45
  30. There is nothing better than waking up in the morning and reading positive post like this. I can’t pick one of the most out all of these points, because they are all true and important as the others. I bookmark this. Thank you!

    Posted on November 15, 2016 at 08:11
  31. I love this and it’s so true, attitude definitely makes a difference between a good and a bad day! being positive breeds positivity in my opinion so affirmations are really useful!

    Posted on November 15, 2016 at 08:08
  32. This is such a great and inspiring article! And yeah, forgive yourself is probably the most important thing. Because all our mistakes belong to the past.

    Cheers, Eliza

    Posted on November 15, 2016 at 05:47
  33. I need to book mark this and come back to it everyday to keep myself in a positive frame of mind!

    Posted on November 14, 2016 at 22:58
  34. Great advice! Love the A-M idea and looking forward for the N-Z. Love the “detox your life of toxic people.” That one is hard to do but a must-do, I think.


    Posted on November 14, 2016 at 21:42
  35. This is just what I needed today. “Stand by your truth” resonated with me beyond words. I think sometimes it’s easy for me to doubt myself when I don’t feel like I’m aligning with others, but this is a great reminder to stand by who you are. Love this. I can’t wait for the next part.

    Posted on November 14, 2016 at 21:10
  36. Yes, love this! Affirmations are vital! Thanks for sharing!

    Posted on November 14, 2016 at 20:06
  37. I think just enjoying the moment is key. Its what we have, so why not celebrate it. Dont deal with other drama or thoughts (that might be negative) and instead be content and be PRESENT where you are.

    Posted on November 14, 2016 at 18:05
  38. I really like this list. I keep hearing more and more about positive affirmations but I never really given them much thought in my own life. I really need to change my mindset on a few things though, so I am going to read through this list often to make sure I’m doing things right!

    Posted on November 14, 2016 at 17:51
  39. How we speak to ourselves in so important! I love your A to M! These are fabulous! I think F is my hardest

    Posted on November 14, 2016 at 16:06
  40. I love this so much! Attitude (and all of the things you listed frankly) can really make a huge difference on your life!

    Posted on November 14, 2016 at 16:06
  41. H is my letter for this week 🙂 Thank you for this wonderful and uplifting post!

    Posted on November 14, 2016 at 10:02
  42. Accepting & loving yourself are the most important things in life 🙂 Wonderful post!

    Posted on November 14, 2016 at 09:44
  43. I think it’s incredibly important to be mindful about how we talk to ourselves… putting oneself down, even as a joke can have really damaging effects. We need to love ourselves as we love others 🙂

  44. Today the “D” affirmation spoke to me most. It’s been rough with election talk around my Facebook life, and I don’t need to hang on to people whose view of the world is incompatible to mine.

    Posted on November 14, 2016 at 09:05
  45. This is a great reminder! Thank you. L – Loving Myself, is something I need to remind myself to do. As a very busy mom to a great little girl, it’s hard to remember to make time to do something for me.

    I also like positive affirmations for my daughter. I make a conscious effort to speak positively over her multiple times a day.
