People suggest "I am" affirmations are particularly powerful: Positive "I am" affirmations I have collected and like:

"I am a powerful force for good in the world." 

"I  stand in the truth that I am a powerful force for good" (Ambika Wauters)

"I am confident in my choices, I am a powerful force for good, accepting the power of my light and love, knowing that I am a powerful force for good." (Chrissie Astell)

"I am a powerful force for good wherever I go. I radiate peace without fear and no negative energy can mess with me." (The Fourth House)

Affirmations can help us accept the hard realities in our lives by helping us adopt an optimistic mind-set. Affirmations are statements of truth that promote inner peace, happiness, and empowerment that remind you of your full potential and give you the encouragement to live in a world that is filled with pain and uncertainty. Affirmations are not simply ignoring the realities of life and deluding yourself with a bunch of fake positivity. They inspire, energize, and help reconnect you with reality. Here are a few examples:

I am enough.

I have everything I need within me to achieve my goals.

I choose courage.

I love and approve of myself.

I trust the process.
