Positive Affirmations to Help Start Off Your Semester Right

School is back in session and it is looking very different from the usual. Online classes & remote co-op jobs have now become the reality for most of us. Many students are starting off the semester already stressed and overwhelmed with their classes, study organization, joining clubs, and just life in general. Although university can be a lot to juggle at times, why not start off your semester by staying positive! 

Staying positive isn’t easy, but positive affirmations are a great (and easy) way to keep your mindset radiating positivity throughout the semester.

Here are a few affirmations to help you think positively and be successful this semester!

I am brilliant and I can do this

University classes, working full/part time, relationships and other commitments can be a lot to juggle. Sometimes we tend to believe that either we are not capable or that we are going to fail. Failure is a part of the process, and just because you fail doesn’t mean you aren’t successful. As students, we have to start believing that we can do it! Remind yourself that failure is a part of success. Believe that you can be successful!

I am determined to reach my goals

We all have a goal in mind whether it’s a life goal or daily goal. Burnout is real so make sure to take breaks and recharge. Each day always presents new ways to achieve your goals. You are capable of achieving your goals! 

I am learning something new each day 

We are in school to learn but, surprisingly, sometimes learning can be forgotten while going through the motions of school and life. Something new can be learned each and every day. No day is perfect, but if you can turn negative situations into a positive learning experience then so much more can be taken from each day. 

I am not afraid to take chances

The new semester brings so many opportunities to join new clubs/initiatives, internships, and so much more! Don’t be afraid to take chances and try new things. You never know how something will turn out unless you try. So don’t take yourself out of the race before it begins and give yourself a chance! You are capable of great & extraordinary things!

I am always getting better in everything I do & it is okay to ask for help 

Nobody is perfect but for some reason, we always feel bad asking for help. In life, we all need a little (or a lot of) help sometimes so don't be afraid to ask for it. There are so many people and resources available to those who ask. Those that ask for help are the ones that succeed the most. Life isn’t meant to be done alone. 

Today is a great day & I attract positivity 

Wake up & tell yourself that today is a great day! It seems silly, but it actually works. Once you train your mind to only allow positivity in you'll be surprised how much your day can be transformed. 

That’s it friends, thanks for reading! I hope these positive affirmations keep you motivated, positive, and successful this semester. Good luck, you can do it!
