5 Types Of Affirmations That Increase Self-Esteem
Are you experiencing low self-esteem and want to try using affirmations to turn this feeling around? Greater self-esteem can boost happiness and help you to pursue the life you want with passion and enthusiasm.

Here are 5 types of affirmations that can increase self-esteem, focusing on some of the key areas that tend to generate insecurity.
Feel free to adapt and amend them to suit your own purposes. Using these Law of Attraction techniques is all about finding words that really resonate with your intentions – this is also a good time to write an intention statement if you haven't already.
1. Affirmations That Help You Believe In Career Success
Whether you’re trying to pursue a whole new line of work or make your way up the career ladder in the field you’re in, it’s common to worry that you don’t have the skills to get what you want. Try these affirmations before a job interview, presentation, or important meeting:

2. Affirmations That Help You Feel Attractive
If you’re down on the way you look, those low levels of confidence can seep into your every interaction. They can make you want to run away. Experiment with affirmations that target the major source of your negative body image, such as one of the following:

- “My body is perfect just the way it is, and I am proud of how I look.”
- “I am a confident, attractive person, and people admire me.”
- “I look great today, and I’m ready to take on the world!”
3. Affirmations That Combat Fear
In many cases, people turn to the Law of Attraction when they’re ready to make major changes in their lives. However, the idea of transforming your life can be intimidating, sparking low levels of confidence. If you’re feeling fearful, these types of affirmations can help to empower you:
- “I am strong and capable; I can overcome any obstacle.”
- “There is nothing to fear; I am moving towards the life I desire and deserve.”
- “I am ready for real change, and I welcome it with open arms.”
- “I am excited and happy to embrace my future.”
4. Affirmations That Support Dating Confidence
Even if you’re truly yearning for love and you're ready to find a wonderful new partner, you may have some old limiting beliefs that have the potential to hold you back. If you know that you have low or variable self-esteem when it comes to your love life, here are some affirmations that can help:
- “I deserve love, and I know I will find it.”
- “I am confident, vibrant, and ready for a great date.”
- “Every date is an adventure, and I will have fun no matter what.”
- “I am ready and willing to receive the love of my life.”
- “I will meet a devoted, loving, and beautiful partner when the time is right.”
5. Affirmations That Build Belief In Abundance
As with love, many people don’t really believe that they deserve financial abundance. Perhaps you’ve had low self-esteem all your life and equate wealth with people who are “better” than you, or maybe you’ve been bullied by people who earn more than you do at work. No matter what the cause of your sense that you don’t deserve more money, combatting this deep insecurity can be very effective in attracting what you desire:
- “I am moving closer to a life of true abundance and prosperity every day.”
- “There is enough in the world for everyone, and I’m going to get what I need.”
- “I’m excited and ready to earn the riches I deserve.”
- “I know I can succeed and build a life of abundance.”
In addition to practicing affirmations, remember that you can support your self-esteem with many other techniques from your Law of Attraction toolkit. For example, there are many different visualization tools that can do a lot to help. And creating a dream board can give you a constant visual reminder of what you’re working to achieve.
