Achieving any kind of success in life requires an abundance of self-love. However, most of us aren’t satisfied with ourselves because we’ve been told a raft of disempowering affirmations and believed them to be true our entire lives.
Here comes the interesting part: it’s only true if you believe it. Don’t let other people’s perception of you sway you. As Henry Ford once said that, ‘’Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t ― you’re right. This is when affirmations come into play. At first glance, it might seem like a bunch of positive-thinking, woo-woo statements. But it’s a lot more than that.
Since we’ve recognized that your environment has shaped your beliefs, why wouldn’t you proactively shape them yourself? This is the real power of self-love affirmations.
Before we dive into the list of actual self-love affirmations, let’s take a closer look at what it means to love yourself and all the benefits it can provide for you.

Self-Love Affirmations: Does It Make You Arrogant?
Oftentimes, people have the misconception that saying things like ‘’Everyone loves me!’’ is being arrogant. But it’s not, because it doesn’t come from a place of conceitedness.
The purpose of affirmations is not to lead you to believe that you’re above and better than everybody else. Instead, they are designed for you to gain confidence in your ability to impact and make a difference in the world.
It’s simply a time for you to fill yourself up and overflow with feelings of love, gratitude and compassion.
Why Use Self-Love Affirmations?
Did you ever let somebody’s criticism or a situation define you? Most people did countless times in the course of their lives, which often results in believing false things and telling yourself disempowering stuff like ‘’I’m unworthy’’ or ‘’Nobody loves me.’’
No matter what the limiting belief that you took on is, self-love affirmations are the key to freeing you from these downright lies!
In fact, it’s still worth it to use affirmations even if you deny having any. It has the power to significantly boost your levels of confidence and self-love.
The Science Behind Affirmations
The fact of the matter is that your brain cannot make the difference between what is real and vividly imagined. Even if you feed your mind with statements it doesn’t believe in the moment, it will override the existing files as time goes by.
Recent studies have shown that affirmations do work and are effective in promoting health behaviors and improving academic performance.
Specifically, another study conducted by a team of researchers at Carnegie Mellon suggests that affirmations may buffer stress and improve problem-solving performance under stress.
What You Must Do For Affirmations To Work
Science also found that using negative words in an affirmation might actually backfire since the subconscious cannot differentiate negative and positive words.
Thus, if you say to yourself things like ‘’I’m not weak’’.. your subconscious may register that you are weak.
Another critical factor that determines whether your self-love affirmations will work or not is how much intensity you put into it. There are 2 ways you could ever tell yourself affirmations: either by just saying it, or by saying it with passion.
Essentially, saying it with passion means engaging your body and using the same body language that you use when you are confident and excited. Affirmations will be much more powerful if you put life into them – after all, we aren’t robots.
When To Use Affirmations
I found that the best time to use affirmations is in the morning before doing anything else. If you’ve been reading my work for a while, you should know that I’m a big advocate of morning rituals.
I strongly believe that how you start the day is how you end the day. It’s no wonder that even billionaires have morning routines: they empower themselves first thing in the morning instead of answering to everybody else’s demands. The best way to help others is to first help yourself.
How To Make The Most Of These Self-Love Affirmations
Lastly, before we get into the actual self-love affirmations.. you need to know how to make the most of them. Here are a few principles that you should follow in order to maximize your results:
- Say affirmations with passion and intensity
- Have an open mind
- Be willing to change
- Use them on a daily-basis
- Be patient
- Integrate them into your morning ritual
As long as you follow these principles, you’ll be well on your way to achieve unlimited success.
