Before we delve into the eight powerful morning affirmations, let us first learn what an affirmation is.
An affirmation is a word or phrase that you repeat to yourself to declare a certain belief or feeling. It is a statement or sign that something is true. Affirmations can change your mindset and transform you to the person you desire to become.
An affirmation is usually a phrase or sentence of powerful words combined. It is a positive statement whose purpose is to dig deep into your conscious and unconscious mind to motivate you, challenge you and push you to reach your full potential in life.
Before you go about your daily activities, it is important to first start your day with powerful morning affirmations. Make it a habit to say these morning affirmations before you leave for work, school, business or go about your day to day activities.

Don’t start your day with scarcity mindset. Don’t wake up in the morning complaining about how you don’t have the financial means to achieve your goals. As you begin your day worrying about the things you lack, you will certainly end your day still complaining about the things you lack and in need of.
