I used to think affirmations were a little bit woo-woo, a bit of a buzzword, not something that would work and make a positive impact. So it is fair to say, I have been on a long journey to realising how powerful affirmations can be.

When I first started to use affirmations, I felt so silly talking to myself, saying the same thing over and over again in, as part of my morning routine. I used to and still do say my affirmations as I am getting ready in the morning. The first affirmation I ever used was ‘I am capable’, I had a lot of self-doubts and lacked confidence. I no longer feel silly in the morning hiding away in the bathroom saying to myself, ‘I am capable’ because I have experienced first hand the power of affirmations, the three little words to yourself can have every morning.

I repeat my affirmations to myself every morning; they put me in the energy of progression; they inspire me and motivate me to progress towards turning my BIGDreams into reality. The affirmations I use, ensure I take positive action each day, allowing me to step into the life I want to have.


I used to be too afraid to voice my dreams, let alone take steps to turn them into a reality. I used to be so terrified that my dreams somehow would disappoint someone, or that my dreams were just to unattainable for me, of others yea sure, not for me. When you are told often enough you are not worthy and you will amount to nothing, sadly you start to believe it (school wasn’t kind to me).

I had to change the way I spoke to myself; I had to control the ‘meanest girl I know’ (that little voice in my head), I had to block out others opinions of me, I had to crave my own path. Instead of telling myself the things people (teachers) had told me all through my childhood, I started to say to myself I can do something, ‘I am capable’. I started using affirmations every day, telling myself I was capable, I could do things and that I had confidence.

I know first hand how powerful affirmations can be so now, I want to help you do the same, these affirmations are my favourite;

  1. I am capable

  2. I am confident

  3. I can achieve anything

  4. My clients love to work with me

  5. I am proud of myself and my achievements

  6. I am confident in my abilities

  7. I make the best decision for myself

  8. I am in charge of my life

  9. I am a magnet for success

  10. I have the power to accomplish everything I need to do today

  11. I am successful

  12. I attract success by being my authentic self

  13. All of my thoughts, plans and ideas lead me straight to success

  14. I trust myself and my intuition

  15. Every decision I make leads me towards my ambitions

  16. I am confident
