SUGGESTED READING FIRST: HOW TO USE DAILY POSITIVE AFFIRMATIONS
By Tania Kotsos
The Top 100 Positive Affirmations List for the 10 key areas of life is here for you to use to reprogram the subconscious mind, change your limiting beliefs and inspire positivity in all ways. When used properly, positive affirmations have the power to transform your life and produce positive change in what you think, what you say and what you do, and ultimately in all your circumstances from your health to your relationships to your self-confidence to your finances—anything you choose.
What You Put In, is What You Get Out
The power of affirmations is nothing new and people have been using them with varying degrees of success for a long time. Your success with them (or any other technique for that matter) lies squarely in how you use your positive affirmations. Use them half-heartedly and your results will be half-hearted. Use them with intention, and your results will come to reflect those intentions. For this reason I recommend reading the 10 fundamental rules for using daily positive affirmations before using the affirmations in this list or making your own.

How to Use the Positive Affirmations List—A Summary
The positive affirmations list below (and on the next 2 pages) can be used to challenge your limiting beliefs and overwrite them at the level of your subconscious mind through their repetition. By repeating positive statements of your choice on a daily basis (morning and night) and for 40 consecutive days, with focus, feeling and a positive attitude, you will reprogram the subconscious mind to match their positivity. Any thought repeated often enough (more so with focus) is in time accepted by your subconscious mind, overwriting opposing beliefs and creating positive ones in their place. By persisting in the use of affirmations, you will come to see massive transformation in your life.
The 100 Positive Affirmations List for 10 Areas of Your Life
What follows is my positive affirmations list divided up into 10 different areas of life, inspired by own experience and the works of New Thought authors such as Emile Coue and Christian D. Larson's Optimist Creed. The first area is affirmations for your self-concept. This is also the most important area because it focuses on affirmations to transform what you believe about yourself. And really all other areas of life are directly affected by your self-concept. The other areas of life I have focussed on are self-improvement, health and body image, relationships, love, success, finances, life in general, manifesting and the ultimate list of positive affirmations, which is to affirm your True Self.
Feel free to add your own categories. You can use the statements in these affirmations lists as is or else as a guide to inspire you to create your own. You may find some overlap between the categories but really that is to be expected because there is really only one category and that is YOU.

Every Day in Every Way
You will notice that the last example on each of the positive affirmations list is a version of Emile Coue's ‘every day in every respect, I am getting better and better’. This is a very powerful and complete statement any which way you use it. The words ‘every day’ suggest an on ongoing daily process, ‘in every way’ refers to every area of your life while ‘getting better and better’ guards against resistance because it's not extreme—it just suggests you are better today compared to yesterday.
This then brings us to the end of my personal Top 100 Positive Affirmations List. As a reminder, make sure to read the article on how to use daily positive affirmations. Persist in repeating the positive statements you choose, be patient with yourself and soon your own tailor-made list of positive affirmation will become who you are and the circumstances of your life will follow suit.
IN A NUTSHELL
In a nutshell, positive affirmations are a very powerful technique for reprograming your mind to be more positive and optimistic, while overwriting negative or limiting beliefs and in time creating the circumstances that match the affirmations. You can use this Top 100 Positive Affirmations list as the foundation of creating your own personal affirmations list. You can use it as is, re-word them to suit you, or else create your own. Whatever you choose, persist in their daily repetition until they feel natural to you and in time they will have become your actual beliefs.
