Boost Your Confidence With These 12 Daily Affirmations

Even the most confident professionals have days when they can feel a little down. Whether you wake up feeling on top of the world or a little less confident, it helps to have a daily affirmation to remind you how special and important you truly are.

Affirmations can be extremely helpful in building confidence and self-esteem. Below, 12 members of Young Entrepreneur Council share their favorite daily affirmations and discuss how they might help the attitudes or mindsets of other professionals at work.

1. “My only competition is myself”

One of my favorite quotes that has become an affirmation is, “My only competition is myself. A company forces you to surpass yourself every day. The goal shouldn’t be to be better than your competitors, because you are nothing alike. You must change your mindset to perform better than yesterday to see abundant progress accumulate over time, leading to success. – Candice Georgiadis, Digital Day

2. “I’m awesome, I’m successful and I’m grateful”

The daily affirmation is so powerful that it dictates the course of your day. If a person thinks, speaks and acts positively, then that person will have a very positive attitude throughout the day. For me, my confidence explodes when I affirm these words: “I am wonderful, I am successful and I am grateful.” Speak these words seven times in the morning and see how it changes your perspective. – Fritz Colcol, Simply Thalia

3. “It will be what it will be”

I think one of the best affirmations you can say to yourself is, “It will be what it will be.” Whether it’s a new launch or you’re pitching something to another company, this will be what it will be. You have to release everything that is beyond your control; otherwise, you will drive yourself crazy. You can only do what you are capable of. Stretching too thin is a recipe for burnout. – Nick Venditti, PointGolf

4. “I do my best”

As we navigate the post-pandemic business world, so much has changed and we can’t go back to pre-2020 data for trends and insights. The world is different and we can only do our best. I remind myself that strategy, the right people, money, and execution are the foundations of the daily habits I establish, and every day I will do my best. – Givelle Lamano, Lamano law firm

5. “Every step counts”

“Every step counts” is a powerful mantra or affirmation that I rely on to keep moving forward. When we’re working on long-term, large-scale projects, it’s easy to lose sight of results. Remembering that small changes and improvements are the key to change helps me to keep making small improvements. I feel more patient and willing to see the work through in the future. – Syed Balkhi, WPBeginner

6. “Trust the process”

“Trust the process” is a good daily affirmation. It’s easy to overestimate how good things are when they’re good and how bad things are when they’re not. By trusting the process and sticking to the plan, you can overcome whatever comes your way. – Josh Weiss, Reggie

7. “Remember where you started from”

Always remember where you started and how desperate you were to get where you are and where you want to go. When we’re in the middle of our business or career, we tend to forget how desperately we wanted it, and any setback makes us want to go back further than when we started. Every morning I imagine myself having reached where I want to be and reflect on where I started. – Kripa Shroff, AK Multinational LLC

8. “We can accomplish anything”

If you want to boost your confidence, repeat this: “With my team by my side, we can accomplish anything.” I think we need this affirmation because it’s easy to feel lonely and full of doubts when you have your nose to the ground on a big project. Remembering that there is a team of people who believe in you and your vision could give you the boost you need. – John Brackett, Smash Ballon LLC

9. “Solutions will come”

Solutions to problems always emerge. Forcing solutions makes a mess. It’s almost like a law of nature. When you force things, they get worse or you have to redo the job. Sit quietly, move on to another task, take action towards a solution, and just wait. He will come to you. – Matthew Capala, Alphametic

10. “Problems are opportunities for improvement”

A powerful affirmation would be, “I am open to seeing problems as opportunities for improvement.” As an entrepreneur, everyone is counting on you to have all the answers. Seeing problems as opportunities for improvement allows you to see the situation from multiple angles and come to the best conclusion to find a solution. – Mary Harcourt, CosmoGlo

11. “I believe in my ability to achieve my goals”

An affirmative thought to tell yourself is, “I believe in my ability to accomplish my goals. As an entrepreneur, it is extremely important for you to create a positive thought pattern involving positive affirmations. This will help you face your challenges with a positive attitude and keep working towards your goals. – Thomas Griffin, OptinMonster

12. “I’m good at what I do and I know my stuff”

Tell yourself: “I am excellent at what I do and I know my job”. Business is so competitive that it can be easy to doubt yourself, your knowledge and your abilities. Do not give in to this temptation. When you feel unsure of yourself, repeat this affirmation. Write it down and stick it on your wall or put it in your desk drawer and pull it out when you need a reminder. – Jonathan Prichard, MattressInsider.com
