Affirmations for confidence can help you strengthen your trust in yourself and in your own instincts and abilities. Feelings of low self-esteem create an inaccurate view of the world that makes you underestimate yourself and your own strengths. This list of affirmations is designed to build feelings of confidence, self-worth, and belief in yourself.

Feelings of inadequacy and low self-esteem limit your potential. They create an inaccurate view of the world in your heads – one in which you think you’re capable of less than you truly are.

As you have more and more success in life, sometimes confidence can increase naturally. But low self-esteem is an attitude that can affect even high-achievers. 

That’s why affirmations for confidence can be so helpful. 

By replacing thoughts of inadequacy with thoughts of self-worth and strength, you can begin to show up in the world with greater confidence. Repeating these affirmations in the context of a confidence meditation can be a good way to internalize them.
