88 Positive Thoughts To Utter To Yourself Daily

There is a common saying that what you think helps shape what you become. It follows that if you have positive thoughts, you will receive positive outcomes.

Good news! If you have questioned your thoughts, wishing they were more uplifting, now is the right time to shift your mind toward positivity. With the hardships of everyday life, thinking negatively can happen rather easily, and can manifest in ways that only hold you back. That’s why saying positive thoughts to yourself can be powerful in helping to promote an achievement mindset.

Je crois que nous sommes faits de particules d’étoiles aussi anciennes que l’univers lui-même. Par conséquent, je suis à l’aise avec cette réalisation qui crée un sens d’égalité, d’unité et d’appartenance. Les gens sont tous identiques, sans distinction de croyance, de couleur, de nationalité ou de toute autre différence superficielle. Nous, et toute la vie sur notre planète, partageons la même origine depuis des millions d’années. Je ne fais que suivre notre morale naturelle de l’homme pour “traiter les autres comme vous voudriez qu’ils vous traitent”.

    Yes, your thoughts have a way of helping to shape what you become. This is exactly why we need to keep that positive vibe going so our thoughts and actions don’t get clouded with negativity.

    I really want to let go of things in the past that I am still holding on to. It’s kinda hard, especially when it involves people you’ve loved. But I’ll definitely try to get rid of them since they contribute to my increased misery today.

  • I’ve picked a handful and written them down on sticky notes to be placed on my goal board. I always look there every morning so it’s going to be a great way to remind me about staying positive. Funny but has been helpful.

  • Hmm. Thinking negatively can manifest and affect you for real? Jeez! I gotta put my thoughts under control then. I’ve been going through a lot lately but don’t want that rearing it’s head in my daily life. This came just at the right time.

  • Read till the end and have already memorized a lot of them. I really need such because I am beginning to go down and I feel like I’m losing that my happy self. But this looks like it will keep me going.

  • Being thankful for the little things that matter is a good thing and if a lot of people can adopt that, we will have more people walking around with genuine smiles on their faces. I always say thank you to that roadside trader when he gives me my purchase even though I paid for it, I also smile at that homeless person even though I’m giving them my last change and even smile to that kid who accidentally bumped into me and spilt my favourite Starbucks I just bought. It’s all part of making the world a better place to live in.

  • Have positive thoughts; receive positive outcomes. Got it! I must say I needed that extra boost. My thoughts are everywhere and honestly, it’s not helping me much because I can’t seem to do things again without thinking about those things which can get me depressed.

    Wow. I can already see my future self achieving great things as going through this has already put me in the achievement mindset. Thanks for taking the time to share all 88 of them.

  • YAY! I love this one. “if problems arise, I’ll keep calm”. It’s totally encouraging and for my kind of person, it’s just all I need to keep reminding myself to stop overreacting in certain situations.

  • Beautiful pieces. I’m definitely bookmarking for the future. They will surely come in handy! And yeah, everything will fall into place, even if I can’t see it yet. I just believe it will. Thanks for putting this together.

    True, quiet time helps us find peace. You may not notice that at first but when you make it a habit, you will love the inner peace that will follow in no time.

  • Oh my! I really need to learn to inhale optimism and exhale worries. This would definitely save me a lot of unnecessary trouble. I can worry over every single thing and it drains me because those things would occupy my thoughts and I’ll hardly do anything else. I just need to ‘unlearn’ and ‘relearn’!

  • Yes! I won’t procrastinate, there are A LOT of things to get done this week. it’s Wednesday already, but I believe keeping this mindset up will still help me achieve a lot before the week runs out like every other.

  • It’s good for one to remember that everyone has a struggle and choose to be kind to all. I’ve learned to not yell at that person who pisses me off on the spot but relax and tell them how I don’t appreciate the action. You’ll find out that such a person would go ahead to apologize. That how life works!
