affirmations for the new year

I will be gentle with myself this year

You are not a failure if you don’t achieve your goals.

You are not a failure if you fail to meet your own expectations.

This is the beginning of a new year, and it’s time to let go of all those things that no longer serve us or take up space in our minds.

And when I say “let go of,” I don’t mean that we should just forget about them—that would be impossible!

Instead, start by being more compassionate towards yourself and understanding what led you to make these decisions in the first place (e.g., being stressed out).

Then decide whether or not they matter enough for you to keep holding onto them anymore.

If so, write down the consequences of keeping them around; if not (and this can be hard!), then release yourself from their grip by forgiving yourself and moving forward with confidence that there will always be more opportunities ahead for growth and change!

I am more capable than I give myself credit for

Don’t limit your capabilities by allowing your weaknesses to define you.

Make a list of what you’re good at and work on improving your weaknesses.

You can do this by setting goals for yourself, learning from others, and asking for help when necessary.

I deserve to be happy

You deserve to be comfortable in your own skin.

The only thing stopping you from achieving that is self-doubt, so don’t make it harder on yourself than it needs to be!

Focus on your strengths instead of dwelling on the things that make us different or weird or awkward; being different has always been part of who we are anyway!

If there’s one thing I’ve learned over the past year (or maybe even my whole life), it’s that we all have our own unique strengths and weaknesses—some more defined than others—but they’re all part of what makes up who we are as individuals.

It can lead us down paths where happiness lies just around the corner waiting patiently until we figure out the best way to reach out and grab hold of something positive.

I will remind myself of the ways in which I have grown, and the things that I have overcome

It is easy to become discouraged when we compare ourselves to others, and fall into a negative mindset.

But it is important to remember that we are all unique individuals with unique experiences.

We should not forget our own triumphs, as they make us who we are.

I will not settle for relationships, environments, and circumstances in which I don’t feel safe or whole

You can’t be whole if you aren’t in a good relationship or environment.

You deserve to feel like yourself at all times—whether that means you need alone time or if it means you need to surround yourself with people who support who you are as an individual.

Your happiness should never change depending on whether or not certain relationships are present in your life at any given time because those relationships should come from a place of love, not obligation or fear of loneliness.

I make sure to continue to work on becoming the person who is capable of achieving my goals

To achieve your goals, you need to set them up for success.

If you’re not sure what your goals are, or if they’re too vague, then you should spend some time thinking about what you want to accomplish and how.

Once you have a solid answer to that question, write down your goals and make sure they’re specific enough so that when you look back on them later in life they won’t leave any room for misinterpretation.

I can make this year count if I’m willing to put in the work

You have so many tasks on your plate—so many goals you want to reach. And you feel like you can’t even get started.

But I’m here to tell you that it’s all about how you look at it.

If we’re going to make this year count, we need to be willing to put in the work.

We need to believe in our abilities and push ourselves outside of our comfort zones. It’s not going to be easy—but it will be worth it!

How to Use Affirmations Effectively?

  • Identify the negative thoughts that you wish to get rid of or something that you wish to manifest. Affirmations work in both scenarios, but you need to be clear about what you want. This post about learning how to write affirmations might help you out.
  • Use the following list as a source of inspiration and guidance. You may use any affirmation as it is, or modify it to make it your own. The key thing here is that the affirmations MUST resonate with you and is a statement you truly believe in.
  • Pick out at least 2 affirmations and start using them. 
  • Begin a routine of practicing at least twice a day of reciting the affirmations with each session lasting 3-5 minutes. Repeat each one 10-15 times daily. You can do this in front of a mirror, speak out loud, or do it in your mind. Do not skip any sessions. I usually do this each morning when I wake and before I go to bed.
  • Download and print out your own affirmations worksheet below to use as a guide for manifestation. Stick it on your mirror/journal/vision board, or anywhere you can easily access it throughout the day so that it can serve as a constant reminder to you. 
  • Alternatively, you can check out our Daily Positive Affirmations Cards which are designed and organized for you. All you need to do is print them and take them everywhere you go!
  • Be patient! It usually takes a month or so to see changes.
