Daily Dose of Positive Affirmation

Updated on August 31, 2016

Ruth Kongaika was born in the Rocky Mountains and has lived most of her life in the South Pacific. She travels, gardens and writes.

In order for you to have balance in your life, you must be aware of two laws, the law of attraction as well as the law of repulsion. If you only focus on negativity and repulsion, you will limit your success in life, but by being AWARE of the law of repulsion, you can train yourself to be focused on the positive.

If we listen to our VULTURE (our inner critic), a constant negative tape, telling ourselves that we are not worthy, we are unlovable and unable, we disempower ourselves.

Let’s concentrate on the law of repulsion, but only for a second. This law suggests that if you spend all of your time thinking about what you do not have, want or like in life, you will actually attract it and you will experience it. Your thoughts are so powerful. Like attracts like, and if you think mostly negatively, you will attract MORE negativity.

On the other hand, through thinking positive thoughts about the future and being grateful for what you already have, you will have more and experience life in a positive way. By focusing on the positive aspects of life, you will attract more positive elements in your life. Through your positive thoughts and actions, you will be able to reach your goals.

You have heard things like – The more you give, the more you get. To be loved, give love. Those are positive statements.

By being a more positive person, you will attract other positive people, events and things. You will definitely feel better just by having a positive frame of mind. By giving service to others, others will serve you.

For many of us, it is easier to be negative. We must make a concentrated effort to put the law of attraction into action.

Acknowledge to yourself what you really want out of life.

Push all doubts away so that there is room for you to BELIEVE IN YOURSELF

Be ready when opportunity knocks.

Remember you are in control of your thoughts.

No one can make you upset unless you allow them to.

Here are some positive affirmations to say to yourself on a daily basis to succeed.

I choose the way I want to be

I am worthy

Life brings me challenges to grow stronger

I care for my well-being

I am thankful for all that I am and that I have

Here are some negative traits you need to put into perspective or they will continue to hurt you:


Try to eliminate these traits from your life. Replace them with their opposites and see how soon you emerge a better person.

It's so hard when I have to, and so easy when I want to. ~Annie Gottlier

Happiness is an attitude. We either make ourselves miserable, or happy and strong. The amount of work is the same. ~Francesca Reigler

If you don't like something change it; if you can't change it, change the way you think about it. ~Mary Engelbreit

Every thought is a seed. If you plant crab apples, don't count on harvesting Golden Delicious. ~Bill Meyer

There are no menial jobs, only menial attitudes. ~William J. Bennett, The Book of Virtues

I always plucked a thistle and planted a flower where I thought a flower would grow. ~Abraham Lincoln

Life is great. Don't let circumstances and society fool you into believing it's not. ~Adabella Radici

I am an optimist. It does not seem too much use being anything else. ~Winston Churchill

Whether you think that you can, or that you can’t, you are usually right. ~Henry Ford

You attract whatever you choose to give your attention to.

Focus on what you are striving for if you want to improve your life.

We cannot get while there are things that we are unwilling to let go of. We cannot see what is ahead of us if we are always focused on what is behind us.

Modifying your way of thinking for the goal of making the world a better place is commendable, but it would be even better if you did it to make yourself a better inhabitant.

    Yes, I agree with you. I lived for years in horrible depression. Now I'm 68 and truly enjoying life. I go to an OA meeting and I hear so many complaints and see so much depression. I want to say "Look for the positive." It's gonna be a bright, bright sunshiny day. Thanks for a good article.

    Elayne, your art is adding to other people. what a real gift you are sharing. I, like Isi am a positive freak but i am old enough that I don't really care what people think. I think it was Henry Ford who said, "If you think you are doing good or you think you are doing bad you are pretty well right". Thanks for a wonderful Hub that I will return to often. NEIL

    PS I have a young friend who does photography and and i turn on her site for relaxation and positive affirmation as well. Her name is Teresa and her site is It is a treat and she is a fellow artist.

    Two great laws to live by. It looks so simple but too difficult to do if you are full of negativities.These are great tips.

    Indeed, if we want to do something, there are many ways to kill the cat; inversely, if we don't like to do anything, there are a million reasons we raise just to run away from it.

  • elayne001 profile imageAUTHOR


    8 years ago from Rocky Mountains

    hahahahah - never heard of that - but yes we need balance in our lives, so maybe you need some negative negativities so you will mellow out. Here's one: the more you keep the more selfish you become or to get rid of people, give hate. and

    I am a positive freak so I think I need the negative attitudes to balance off my positive attributes or I will be considered mentally disorder for being so happy all the time. Well may be not I like myself being happy. Cheers

    I appreciate your comments Debby. It takes quite a bit of effort to keep our thoughts on track doesn't it. A list of positive affirmations is great to put on your mirror while you are getting ready in the morning. Aloha from Hawaii.

    We have a little thought in our heads all day that says we should be doing something else, or something better, etc. While when we purposely affirm the good we are doing with a conscious effort, the results are enormous. Thank you for reminding me to do this. Blessings, Debby

    I absolutely love this hub. You have done an excellent job from beginning to end. I am a firm believer in all that you wrote about. I think I learned the hard way, that is through trial and error. Back when I was in recovery, there wasn't a whole lot of information out there. However one of my first books that started turning my life around was a small blue book called, "The Power of Affirmations."

    It was the start of a whole new way of life.

    Thanks so much for such a wonderful hub. I love the videos as well and will bookmark this so that I can watch them again.

    Great job!

    "Modifying your way of thinking for the goal of making the world a better place is commendable, but it would be even better if you did it to make yourself a better inhabitant."

    Hi elayne, I thank you for reminding me about the power of positive thinking. My favorite is your last paragraph that I think captures a more desirable goal or attitude in life...and you saved the best for last.:)

    Great hub!

    good advices, believe in yourself and I must admit for a long time I hated for somebody because of what he did to me, but then it hurts you more, its right, elayne,

    I appreciate all of your positive feedback! I am striving to have a brighter outlook on things and I studied the subject quite a bit. It does help to say positive affirmations each and every time I find myself slipping back into the old routine of negative thinking. Stay positive.

    Nice hub. Positive thoughts are good for you mentally but also physically. I have some health problems and I find if I stay in a positive frame of mind that I stay healthier. My trust in God is a steadying force that brings me joy. I try to focus on the positives and your videos are really good.
