50 Positive Affirmations To Boost Your Confidence (And Change Your Life)

What would you say if we told you that there was an almost-too-easy way to gain confidence and boost your self-esteem? Well, that's kind of a no-brainer—sign us up! All it takes is making the daily effort to say wonderful things about yourself, directly to yourself, similar to giving your best friend a pep talk. Intriguing, right? This dialogue is known as positive affirmation, and we have 50 positive affirmations for women to get you started! 

Affirmations are defined as "statements that are designed to create self-change in the individual using them. They can serve as inspiration, as well as simple reminders." Even if you don't (yet) fully believe the encouraging words coming out of your own mouth, these empowering, daily declarations will likely begin to take root in, as well as rewrite, your subconscious mind.

Not only that, this new habit can help keep favorable truths about yourself at the forefront of your mind throughout the day as well. It can be difficult to scroll through social media without comparing yourself to others, wondering if everyone else is happier and more productive than you. By calling out your strengths on a regular basis, you'll be able to more easily combat negative feelings that can arise from browsing the "highlight reels" of others.

We've compiled a list of 50 positive affirmations and inspiring advice from various authors, women, motivational speakers, celebrities, and more to give you some ideas on where to start. You can adapt these messages into "I am" statements to proclaim to yourself frequently, and then notice the changes and growth in your self-confidence and what you believe about your self-worth! Here are the best positive affirmations for women and positive self-affirmations to remember throughout the day.
