“I can do it.”
This is Call to Action® founder Jill Palese’s go to affirmation since childhood. “When I was young, that applied to little things, like jumping off trees, skateboarding down steep hills, jumping over a wall on horseback. With maturity, my ‘I can do it’ has evolved to things I want and need to accomplish. Big goals, directed toward environmental consciousness.”
Positive self-affirmations are a great way to increase your self-esteem, generate motivation, and get through the bumpy parts of life. It is important to be aware of your negative feelings and emotions, but you don’t have to let them define you. Keeping these positive thoughts in mind can help clear your head and give you a little extra light in your life.
What is so beautiful about self affirmations is that you can choose whichever ones speak to you and they can be used whenever you need. Say them when you wake up in the morning to yourself in the mirror. Write them down on sticky notes and place them in places that you will look throughout the day. Keep a list on your phone that you can turn to when you need a little pick-me-up. However you decide to use them is up to you. We hope you can find some in this list that you resonate with, or you can at least get some inspiration for affirmations that you create.
