20 Self Affirmations to Improve Myself

Self affirmations are those affirmations that deal only with the exploits of self. God, Universe, Divine Presence, etc. don’t play much of a part in these effective affirmations.

An important premise in self development is that one is in charge of one’s own development. It is the “Self” that is responsible. Only when you accept responsibility for your own self that things begin to happen.

Each one of us has had some positive life experiences. We can build on these past experiences now (in the present) in order to build a good future for ourselves. A positive self affirmation will help in this. The positive life experiences of the past act as a foundation for the future.

A self affirmation is nothing but self talk. All of us indulge in self talk. Let us make it positive self talk.

A positive affirmation effectively tells our subconscious mind the kind of life we wish to live. It is “I-centric”, that is, it stresses on “I”, rather than on God, Universe, etc. Being I-centric does not mean being selfish. It simply means that you care for yourself too.

Being I-centric has more to do with self love than selfishness. If one does not love oneself then there is the danger of low self esteem. That creates additional problems.

When you use an effective affirmation, you are telling to yourself and to the world that you are willing to accept the responsibility for your own development.

When we repeat effective affirmations, we are reinforcing the power of the self to change our life for the better without taking the crutches of any outside help.

The framing of affirmations is very important. Follow the techniques given here. If you are weighing 250 pounds and keep on affirming “I am slim”, the subconscious mind will find it very difficult to believe you. It is important to say “I choose to lose weight and become slim” or something like "Every day in every way my weight is becoming lesser and lesser and I am fast approaching my ideal weight", which the subconscious will believe.

A list of positive self affirmations is given below. Use any one of it or combine one or more to suit your purpose. Repeat daily at least a hundred times for a period of not less than six months to see the results.
