How to Integrate These Affirmations and Overcome Fear

When it comes to affirmations, the key is repetition. The more you say them, the more they will become ingrained in your subconscious mind, and eventually, they will become part of your belief system.

So don’t just read these affirmations once and then forget about them. Print them out or write them down and refer to them often.

Another helpful idea for amplifying the power of affirmations is to create a sacred and safe environment for practicing them. While you can use your affirmations anywhere, it can be especially helpful to set aside a special place and time when you won’t be interrupted.

When it comes to timing, this could be first thing in the morning, right before bed, or during your lunch break.

An affirmation that reads 'I believe in myself and my abilities'

Take a few deep breaths before you begin and focus your attention on the present moment. Then, start repeating your affirmations out loud, slowly, clearly, and with feeling.

As you do, really try to believe the words you are saying. If any negative or doubtful thoughts come up, simply let them go and return your focus to your affirmations.

It might feel awkward or even silly at first but keep at it. The more you practice, the easier it will become. And soon enough, you’ll be surprised at how much your affirmations have helped you to overcome your fears and live a more joyful and fulfilling life.

The Bottom Line

No matter what your fear is, know that you are not alone. We all have fears and there is nothing wrong with that. What’s important is how you deal with your fears. Do they control you or do you control them?

The next time you’re feeling afraid, remember these 101 positive affirmations about overcoming fear. Say them out loud, believe them, and watch as your fear starts to dissipate. Then, take a deep breath and go out there and conquer the world. You got this!
