Positive Affirmations A to M

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.

Attitude to Motivation

Positive Affirmations Post

Accept Yourself – This is who you are

Be emotionally honest – Stand by your truth

Consciously change your mental attitude – With positive affirmations

Detox your life of toxic people – You will be better off for it

Empower yourself – Make this a daily habit

Forgive yourself – Mistakes are where they should be (in the past)

Guidance – Seek it from those who love you

Hold on to the positives – Let go of the negatives

Intentions are good – Make it an intention to have a good day

Just enjoy the moment

Keep going – You will get through it

Love yourself – Do something nice for yourself every single day

Motivate yourself and others



Do you speak positive affirmations to yourself? If not, or if you need a little daily boost, download your positive affirmations guide blow and get the complete list from A – Z before anyone else.

Let me know which letter A – L you think will be most helpful to you, today, this week, or at this stage in your life.

Have a wonderful and positive day! Speak good things to yourself! You deserve it.

    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!

    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! ^_^

    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.

    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.

    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 🙂

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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!

    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!

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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 🙂

    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.

    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.
