33 Morning Affirmations & Positive Quotes To Start Your Day Off Right

When people ask me where I get my confidence from, there are a couple answers I give. “Have you SEEN me?”, “Tequila”, “I honestly don’t know ” or “Daily affirmations.” 

In case you haven’t heard of affirmations before, I’ll give you a quick overview. 

An affirmation is basically a statement you say to yourself that positively reinforces the fact that you are worthy. 

They can be self-made, spontaneous and geared towards any doubts or negative thoughts you may have, which is what makes them so powerful.

Imagine you have a tiny life coach sitting with you (Ratatouille style) all day, every day, telling you that you’re killing it.

This little life coach cheers on your good decisions and reminds you of all the reasons you should love yourself. Okay, that’s a little creepy, so maybe that's a bad example. But think about it like this: You are cheering yourself on throughout the good and bad times. A little better, right? 

The idea of affirmations is to program your mind to think about the good in situations instead of focusing on the bad things. It’s about getting yourself accustomed to hearing positive things, and to reaffirm your self-confidence. 

This list of 33 best positive morning affirmations and uplifting positive quotes you can say to yourself daily is a great way to get your foot wet with affirmations and to get started on the path to more self-confidence and a more positive future.
