Are you wanting to use daily affirmations to boost your confidence, but just don't know where to begin? You may have already read some helpful pieces that help you design your own Law of Attraction affirmations, ones that target your highly specific goals and help you to become fully in tune with the things you want to manifest.
However, it’s also well worth taking the time to think about general affirmations you can use.
Your manifestation potential is always higher and potent when you feel genuinely good about yourself and connect with your own strength. Here are some guidelines for coming up with your own self-empowerment affirmations, along with a few examples that you can use or adapt.
How To Construct Self-Empowerment Affirmations
You can benefit from virtually any affirmation that focuses your attention on your best qualities, your capacity for change, your belief in a better world and your sense of the deep wells of power inside you.
For example, you might try making a list of ten things that you feel insecure about. Then, deliberately try to come up with affirmations that gently but persistently guide you towards the opposite perspective.

That being said, the mindset you’re in when you say your affirmations is almost as significant as the words themselves. You should aim to be in a state similar to that associated with mindfulness exercises, in which you’re fully connected to the sense of inhabiting your body, and your thoughts are slower than usual.
You might worry that you don’t have time to get into this mental zone.
But, you can take a shortcut by simply taking ten deep inhales and exhales before your daily affirmation ritual. This quickly transports you into a calmer, more focused, and receptive state.
If you’d like to start with some basic self-empowerment affirmations instead of (or before) trying to create your own, here are some highly recommended phrases that work well for many Law of Attraction practitioners.
- “I am worthy.”
Simple but powerful. This affirmation reminds you that you have every right to ask to receive everything you want, no matter what undermining messages you may have received in earlier life.
- “I have all the power I need.”
Sometimes, we think we need to rely on others in order to get what we want. While other people can be great resources and supporters, it’s important to understand that you have everything you need inside.
- “I make my dreams my reality.”
A statement like this is a good way to quickly reflect on the truth of the Law of Attraction. And to turn your attention to your endless ability to shape the world around you.
- “I give my unique gifts to the world.”
Instead of comparing yourself to other people and worrying that you come up short, see that no one can give the world what you do. Rejoice in the fact that you are enriching that world every day.
- “I contain multitudes.”
You will sometimes have mixed feelings, and you will change and evolve over time. Both of these things are okay! They simply reflect your complexity. Respect and honor your many facets, and all they have to teach you.
- “I will be my own best advocate.”
Just as you already have all the power you need, you should feel confident about advocating for your needs and goals. You don’t need to apologize to anyone for pursuing respect and success. This affirmation helps you stay in tune with that idea.
- “I have the strength to succeed.”
These words are useful whether you need to empower yourself to work towards abundance, romance, a rich career or something else entirely. This is a quick affirmation to use when you’re feeling a little wobbly.
- “I am the author of my own destiny.”
No one else gets to decide what’s best for you, what you want, or how you pursue it. Say this sentence to combat the underlying worry that you need to please others or that you should bow to their expertise in matters of your own happiness.
- “I am responsible for my own happiness.”
Likewise, no one gets to take away your joy. Plus, no one can be blamed for preventing you from having it. Happiness is a choice, and it’s one you can make today.
- “I give and receive love each day.”
Compassion and love boost your vibrational frequency and attract better things into your life, so a morning affirmation like this sets you up for a day of reciprocal positivity.
- “I will triumph over all challenges.”
There is nothing you can’t overcome! However, sometimes you need to hear yourself say this out loud before you remember that it really is true.
- “I have the power to choose.”
Sometimes, it can feel like you’re being forced into a corner, by people or by circumstance. However, your own manifestation abilities mean that you can always choose to do something different. Plus, realizing this is freeing.
- “To take care of others, I need to take care of myself.”
Whenever you feel like you’re draining your own resources to meet the needs of others, this affirmation can push you to see that you need to put your self-care first
- “I believe in myself.”
Finally, sometimes the simplest affirmations are the very best. If you verbalize your trust and belief in yourself often enough, it will become the bedrock upon which all your other decisions are made.
