Positive Affirmations to Live By ~

We’ve mentioned time and again that shortcomings, failures, and misadventures are part of life. However, we’ve also repeatedly assured you that hardships are actually blessings in disguise and that no matter what life throws at us, the ways to cope and move forward are in abundance. One of the most common and most effective methods to get through bad days is to practice positive affirmations. In our previous article, we’ve discussed the 8 incredible benefits of positive affirmations (see: 8 Benefits of Positive Affirmations), and now that we know how these simple words of encouragement and empowerment can have a huge impact on our day (and our life!), it’s just fitting to introduce you to a couple of positive affirmations to live by.


  1. “Let go of the thoughts that don’t make you strong.” (@bettermecalligraphy)

Do yourself a favor and fill your life with positivity, and positivity alone. As a matter of fact, 99% of things you worry about never happen. So live your life happily and just focus on the good. Learn to let go of things that bring you down and don’t add value to your life. Life is actually good, you just have to play your part too 🙂


  1. “If you can’t fly, then run. If you can’t run, then walk. If you can’t walk, then crawl. but whatever you do, you have to keep moving forward.” – Martin Luther King Jr. (@popsofpositivity)

You know what separates the successful people from the rest? They dared to begin and they made it happen. Learn how to create your own opportunities because quite frankly, life will not hand you your dreams. In reality, life will give you more challenges to test your strength and willpower. So no matter the circumstances, always work hard to fulfill your dreams and never give up!


  1. You deserve to be happy. You deserve to be loved. You deserve to be valued. (@spiritual.creative)

Your happiness and worth should not depend on other people. Strive and learn how to love yourself first to be able to know the true meaning of compassion. Learn how to make yourself happy even in the worst days. And most of all, be aware of your value without the need of affirmations from other people.


  1. Always strive to improve yourself. (@bluegala)

If you want to grow and be your best self, make lifelong learning a habit. Always be excited to learn and try something new! Remember that all successful people started somewhere and had also encountered roadblocks along the way, but they used these shortcomings as an opportunity to learn and improve. It’s okay to be yourself, but always strive to be your best self.


  1. “Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself.” – Coco Chanel (@famisko)

The best gift you could give yourself is to be yourself. Being yourself is a choice, and is definitely a good one. The most beautiful people are those who choose to be authentic in a world where society strives to meet certain ‘beauty’ standards. We are beautiful in our own, unique way <3


  1. Be happy. Not because everything is good, but because you can see the good in everything. (@iamfearlesssoul)

No matter how hard life might get, there’s always something to be thankful for. Learn to find happiness even in the most difficult situations, and we’ll never feel lost and gloomy in our own company. When you see the good in everything, you allow yourself to find peace. You will be forever thankful for it, I promise.


  1. May the space between where I am and where I want to be inspire me. (@risingtidesociety)

Whether you have just started or you’re almost at the finish line, commend yourself for doing what most people cannot accomplish: taking the first step. Wherever you are in your journey to fulfilling your dreams, always do your best because, after every milestone, you are taking another step closer to reaching your goals. So inspire yourself to work harder and harder every day.
