21 Affirmations to Increase Motivation

We could all use a little extra motivation sometimes.  I don’t like it when the alarm goes off in the morning, the sun isn’t even up, the house is cold, and I just really don’t want to go to work.  I just have to remember that I’m not alone.

These affirmations are designed to give you the strength to get out of bed when you really don’t want to.  They work by instilling positive thoughts that lead to the self-discovery of your own core purpose, because dangling the carrot doesn’t always do the trick.

Affirmation: I Enjoy Motivating Myself

What makes this affirmation effective is that it has emotion in the word enjoy, and it also has an action word,’motivating,’ along with being in the present tense.  Use it to reprogram your subconscious to increase motivation.  Affirmations may feel like a lie at first, because we are so used to having negative self talk.  If you keep with it then you’ll find that you can overcome the blockages that keep you from achieving your goals.
