Confidence affirmations are a great way to boost your confidence and overcome insecurities.
Let me ask you a question…
How do you speak about yourself?
Better yet, how do you speak to yourself?
If you’re struggling with insecurity and low self-esteem then I already know the answers to those questions.
Am I right?
Your own self-talk probably resembles that of a bully’s.
You’re constantly pointing out your flaws, comparing yourself to others, and talking down to yourself.
If this sounds like you, keep reading sis.
I’m going to help you ditch the negative self-talk, for powerful affirmations that will boost your confidence.
What’s Hurting Your Confidence?
You know as well as I do that crap-talking yourself doesn’t help anything.
Besides that fact that it’s just straight up mean, it’s also hurting your confidence.
If you’ve been allowing negative self-talk and self-sabotaging thoughts to run wild in your mind, your caught in what I call the “Cycle of Negativity.”
The Cycle of Negativity
Here are the highlights:
- Your words can be traced back to your thoughts
- Your thoughts can be traced back to your beliefs
- Your beliefs are based on your perceptions of yourself and the things that have happened in your life
Your negative beliefs about yourself, give birth to negative thoughts, and ultimately negative self-talk.
And the more you stay in that cycle of speaking and thinking badly about yourself, the more engrained those negative beliefs can become.
How to End the Cycle of Negative Thoughts
If you’re ready to stop self-sabotaging and instead start building yourself up, then it’s time for what I call “The Thought Exchange.”
The Thought Exchange will help you move from a negative to a positive mindset.
The thought exchange is about trading negative thoughts for positive thoughts.
Here’s how it works:
- Choose new positive thoughts about yourself
- Turn those thoughts into confidence boosting affirmations (changes your self-talk)
- Meditate on those new thoughts and affirmations (changes your mindset)
Changing your self-talk is one of the best ways to reprogram your subconcious mind.
This concept is so powerful that successful people have used it for generations to reprogram.
Even the Bible tells us that God transforms us (to be more like Him) by helping us change the way we think.
“But let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think.” (Romans 12:2 NLT)
One of the great things about using affirmations is that you can start instantly.

How Daily Affirmations Help Build Self-Confidence
“Sticks and stones can break my bones, but words will never hurt me.”
Lemme tell you something sis, they lied.
The science backs it up – negative words can literally affect your brain, your hormones, and ultimately your actions.
So fixing your negative self-talk is critical to boosting your confidence.
In the same way, positive affirmations can build you up.
I can tell you from personal experience, that it won’t be an overnight change.
The science proves that if you practice choosing new thoughts and words daily, it will positively impact the way you think and feel.
“Positive affirmations require regular practice if you want to make lasting, long-term changes to the ways that you think and feel. The good news is that the practice and popularity of positive affirmations are based on widely accepted and well-established psychological theory. – Positive Psychology”
And the Bible says this about our words…
“Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. – Ephesians 4:29 NIV”
That’s perfect wisdom to guide how we talk to ourselves.
Add Confidence Affirmations to your Daily Routine
Amazing things will start happening when you make confidence affirmations part of your daily routine.
Morning affirmations are an especially effective way to start the day with a positive outlook.
Make a commitment to stop talking crap to yourself, and instead start repeating these simple positive statements.
You’ll literally begin reprogramming your mind.
Over time, your thoughts and feelings about yourself will begin changing.
And you’ll find yourself transforming into a more confident version of yourself.
Warning: When you first start using affirmations, you won’t feel any different. In fact you’ll feel like you’re lying to yourself.
Don’t let that stop you.
Push through and keep going.
And as you say each statement, try imagining what it’ll be like when you get to the place where you mean everything you’re saying with your whole heart.
I bet you’re excited to meet the future version of yourself!
Make your own Affirmations
Ready to give your confidence the ultimate pick-me-up?
I recommend writing your own personalized self esteem affirmations.
Nobody knows better than you, what specific issues you’re dealing with.
And no one is better qualified than you, to come up with confidence affirmations that speak to the heart of those issues.
I’ve found some amazing affirmations online, but my favorite affirmations are the ones I created myself.
So, I encourage you to spend some time writing your own.
Other Tips for Using Affirmations
#1: Avoid Unnecessary Triggers
This is easier said than done, but try to avoid unnecessary things that trigger you.
For example, if scrolling on social media will make you feel like a chubby loser, for heaven’s sake, don’t scroll. 😩
Choose activities that will work with your new affirmations habit, not against it.
#2: Use them on Bad Days
When you’re in the middle of a crappy day, it’ll be tempting to go back to your old ways.
But using your affirmations in the middle of a bad day, can help you keep a positive attitude.
#3: Be kind to yourself
Changing your self-talk is hard work, but you’ve done hard things before, so you can do this. Just be patient with yourself and give yourself lots of grace.
#4: Trust the Process
Positive changes usually aren’t obvious immediately. Realistically you won’t go from a lack of confidence to loving and accepting yourself overnight.
But if you take the first step and use these self-confidence affirmations every single day, you’ll start noticing the little things begin to change.
And before you know it, your entire outlook is different. I’ve seen this process work in my own life and I can testify that positive self-talk is a powerful tool.
I know first hand that the road ahead is rough.
But you are so worth it.
As long as you see yourself as less than the amazing, unique, and powerful woman God created you to be- you’ll play small and sell yourself short.
So I hope you commit to taking this journey and exchanging that negative self-talk for some confidence boosting affirmations.
PS. My confidence began soaring when I began praying and asking God to help me view myself through His eyes. That’s my prayer for you today – that you’ll see yourself through the eyes of the God who loves you more than you could imagine.
w/ light and love,
Matthew 5:14 – You are the light of the world. And like a city on a hill that cannot be hidden.
