Affirmation Quotes

Affirmations can be the secret sauce to shift your mindset, promote self-confidence and inspire you to believe in yourself.

Everyone wants to be successful in life. Everyone wants to achieve their goals and reach their full potential. But so many people are held back by self-doubt, by negative thoughts and beliefs.

Repetition of positive statements, or affirmations, can help you to rewrite the script of your self-talk and overturn those negative beliefs.

Affirmations are essentially a type of ‘pep-talk’ for yourself.

Thought leaders have long spoken about the power of affirmations and ‘why’ it’s so important to choose your words carefully. However, you can read about ‘why’ you should do something a hundred times and sometimes it still doesn’t sink in.

If you need a little more convincing on the power of affirmations, consider these great quotes from successful thought leaders. It’s interesting to hear the differing opinions and thoughts on why affirmations can be so impactful. I’m sure you will find a few that will resonate with you in some way.
