affirmations for confidence Today I want to dive into some affirmations for confidence and believing in yourself. So what are affirmations and how can they improve our lives?

Affirmations are sentences or phrases that we say to ourselves. As a general rule, it helps to used affirmations regularly, though some can be used at times when we need them the most. Daily repetition helps affirmations become more powerful.

Personally, I feel that affirmations work best when we have some belief in them (even if we are not 100% all in). It helps if we can relate to the affirmation in some way.

These 65 affirmations for confidence can work as stepping stones to improving your confidence. I also think the more you personalize affirmations to suit yourself and your situation the more effective they will be.

A key part of confidence is based on taking action. When we take action we complete our projects and achieve our goals.  Our confidence grows when we step out of our comfort zone and have a win (even a small one). Learning new things also helps to build confidence.

We grow more confident by having consistent wins that prove what we are capable of. Of course, the big wins certainly help too. 🙂
