This Week’s Affirmation

It is in taking action that our confidence grows.  I find this is the best way to overcome fear and build self-confidence. Although hard, I face the things I fear the most. This is where affirmations are a great help.   This weeks affirmation is as follows:
My confidence and courage grow when I take action.


I have confidence in my abilities and in myself. My past accomplishments fuel my confidence. I expect to accomplish great things in the future. My confidence expands from one day to the next.

The more life experience I gain, the more confidence I have at my disposal.  I inhale confidence with every breath.   Every action I take makes me feel more capable and sure of myself. It is as if I can absorb confidence from everything around me. My confidence grows through life itself.

When my confidence is at a low point, I recall the many times I have enjoyed great success. I remember all the people that have confidence in my abilities. This quickly reminds me of my right to feel confident. My confidence comes rushing back.

I deal with setbacks and temporary failures calmly and joyfully. The lessons I learn increase my confidence and my ability to be more successful in the future.

Today, I am feeling more confident than ever before. I am taking on new challenges with the expectation of success. I allow confidence to fill my mind and body. With each breath, I inhale confidence and exhale doubts.

Self-Reflection Questions:

  1. When do I struggle to feel confident? Why?
  2. 2. What can I do to be more confident in those situations?
  3. 3. When do I feel the most confident? Why?

About Weekly Affirmations

Each week I find it helpful to use affirmations.   I personally find using the same affirmation for 7 days more effective, so I will share them each Thursday with you.
You may ask why Thursday, well it usually is the day of the week that I struggle the most.   I found Sunday’s as a start not working for me, I tried then Monday and discovered that I would be stressed from work.
The discovery that the affirmation sits in my mind over the weekend that by Monday was a game changer.  It became part of me effortlessly.  You can use them as you see best fit.  There is no right or wrong with affirmations as long as you use them.   Using the affirmations in your daily life helps you build the life that you desire.

Take Action with Words

Words have power — use them to your advantage to make today a great day for you!   If you are always saying you can’t do something you are setting yourself up for failure.  Use these affirmations to assist you on your spiritual journey to grow and prosper.
