15 Simple Creativity Affirmations: Plus Why They Work, And How To Use Them

One of the most important things you need to know when it comes to self-improvement is the power of affirmations.

Affirmations are essentially positive self-talk. They can help you break free from life’s limitations, and enjoy a fulfilling future. Many people try affirmations but give up within a few weeks because their mind does not believe in what they are saying to themselves.

This is why mindset is such a big deal when you’re thinking positive, you can basically do it all. But that is easier said than done.

So, keep doing the affirmations. They are working even if you don’t know it yet.

It’s easy to look at the world and see a lot of ideas that are similar. You may think that this means you don’t have anything original or valuable to contribute. But the truth is, no one can judge what’s truly novel and what’s not, because it’s impossible to know if someone else has already had an idea unless they’ve shared it with others.

7 More Affirmations For Creativity

  • I am an authentic person.
  • I am a worthwhile person.
  • I have unlimited potential.
  • I can be a success in anything I choose to do.
  • My accomplishments are important and recognized by others.
  • I am creative.
  • I have infinite ideas.

You might notice that these all include the word “I,” as many effective affirmations will.

The best affirmations also tend to be positive statements that are phrased in the present tense, as though they’re already true (for example, “I have unlimited potential” instead of “I will have unlimited potential”).

This taps into your subconscious mind, which helps you believe the messages you’re telling yourself and begin to attract this new reality into your life.

What Do You Need To Know When Doing Creativity Affirmations?

  • Be open to new ideas and ways of working
  • Force nothing. Effortless creativity will always come
  • Try different perspectives. And when you do, keep an open mind

If you want to use affirmations for creativity or anything else in your life, spend about 10 minutes each day repeating them out loud or writing them down for yourself on paper or a whiteboard (whatever works for you).

It’s easy to get discouraged at first if it feels like this isn’t doing anything for you; keep repeating your chosen affirmation(s) anyway!

You may need to say or write them every day for weeks before seeing substantial results—and remember, each time you do this is another opportunity for positive thoughts and energy to build up within yourself and bring about positive change in any areas of your life.

You got this.

Happy Manifesting!
