Last Updated: April 14, 2022

As we come through the other side of this pandemic (at least, sort of), a lot of us are still feeling a lack of control in our lives. You might feel unsure about vacation or travel plans. Or perhaps you’re feeling ultra-anxious about attending gatherings (it’s been a while!).

Or maybe you’re being told you have to get back into the office and truth be told, you really don’t want to.

While there’s inevitably much more to finding contentment and control than affirmations, these simple phrases can help you get back on track. They can help boost your confidence and tell your mind that you are the one in charge—not the other way around!

Here’s the thing: The mind loves repetition. The thoughts we tell ourselves are because we’ve repeated them to ourselves a million times. When you change these thoughts and start telling yourself new messages or stories, your whole life changes. 

Positive affirmations are short but powerful statements. They help you guide yourself back on track and gain back that control. So, what affirmations should you be using to grab life by the horns and get back in that drivers’ seat?

5 “I Take Back My Power” Affirmations

When you give other people power over you—the power to influence your feelings, decisions, behaviors, and more—you give up your responsibility and your control. Affirmations can help you avoid doing this, as well as help you grab back that control. Here are a few phrases to help you out:

  • "I am powerful and I am strong."
  • "I own my feelings, my thoughts, and my behaviors."
  • "My energy is my responsibility."
  • "I create my own vibration."
  • "I go after what I want in life."


5 Daily Affirmations for Confidence

Feeling like you have no control over your life can sometimes come down to a confidence issue. Thus, you’ve got to do things to amp up your confidence. The truth is you can’t rely on others to do so. With that in mind, here are a few affirmations to help you get started:

  • "I love and accept myself."
  • "I am becoming a better version of myself every day."
  • "My confidence is rising every day."
  • "I believe in myself and my abilities."
  • "I am enough."


How to Use These Affirmations to Propel Yourself Forward

Remember, the mind loves repetition. This means that if an affirmation speaks to you, repeat it! And even if it doesn’t but you wish it did, repeat it. Do this every single day. 

Usually, repeating an affirmation between 5 and 10 times should suffice. Yet, feel free to take the affirmation with you and use it as you go about your day to remind yourself of your worth and your control.

And feel free to switch up your affirmations when they start to feel a little old and stale or when you feel you’ve overcome what the affirmation set out to help you achieve.
