7 Morning Affirmations for Blogging Success
Let me tell you why morning affirmations should be a part of your routine.
But before I get into that…
You might be thinking:
What does that have to do with your blogging success?
The way you spend your mornings can set the tone of your day.
For example, you sleep through your alarm and wake up feeling frantic when you realise you’re running late.
Because you’re running late, you may be irritated and feeling like this day is going to be a struggle.
And because you think that, throughout your day you find yourself in situations that prove that indeed your day is a struggle.
This relates to the law of attraction, which states that like attracts like.
So how do you spend your first hour after waking up?
What thoughts do you find yourself thinking when you wake up?
Are they good thoughts or complaints?
Because if you have thoughts like “I’m not good enough” or “So and so is better than me” or “I feel like a failure”, these thoughts trickle down into your day and affect how you take action.
When I first learned about how your thoughts affect your feelings which then affect your actions, it didn’t sink in.
The concept made sense, and I agreed with it, but somehow it took a while for me to truly understand what it meant.
One of the thoughts I’d been struggling with was that I didn’t think I could achieve the success I wanted with my blog.
And I have so many goals and I want to take this blog to massive heights!
I know I’d come far, especially because I’m a full-time blogger, landed a dream travel collaboration, launched multiple digital products like an online course and a workbook, and grew my Instagram to over 1,000!

✨EIGHT FACTS ABOUT ME THAT YOU MAY OR MAY NOT KNOW. ✨ ⠀⠀ We’ve surpassed the 1,000 mark on Instagram (Seriously, thank you!), so I want to re-introduce myself. ⠀⠀ I’m Izzy from Manila, Philippines and I help content creators start their blogs & build their creative biz so that they have more freedom to travel. I blog at www.izzymatias.com. ⠀⠀ And here are eight facts about me: ⠀⠀ 1. I had four day jobs before I went full-time with my blog and this was not my first attempt to go full-time. Previously, I had tried to jump-start a freelance writing career but during the second month, I had been offered a day job and well, I took it. ⠀⠀ 2. I’m not big on sweets like cakes or cupcakes, but I do love chocolate, particularly milk chocolate with a certain percentage of dark chocolate in the mix. ⠀⠀ 3. My first trip abroad was when I was four and we went to Australia. All I remember from the trip was that one of the kangaroos stole the snacks we were trying to feed them with. ⠀⠀ 4. I would love to live abroad one day. I imagine myself living in a beachside town with a good food and music scene. The dream is somewhere in the UK but who knows where life will take me. ⠀⠀ 5. I wrote a YA novel about music called “The Hush Society Presents” and hope to publish it one day. I just have to start looking for agents once again! Here’s a little description of my book, “When Cameron is recruited into an underground music community for a summer tour, he must face his biggest fear–himself–if he is to succeed in achieving his deepest desire.” ⠀⠀ 6. I studied Creative Writing for a summer semester abroad in Oxford and it’s one of my dreams to go back to that city. ⠀⠀ 7. I am an only child & my Myers-Briggs is INFJ. ⠀⠀ 8. One of the reasons why I wanted to become a full-time blogger & creative entrepreneur is because I want complete freedom of my time and to be able to travel whenever and wherever. ⠀⠀ What about you? Comment something about yourself & let’s get to know each other better! ✨
But even if I’d achieved all that, there was a part of me that doubted that I could achieve those six or seven-figure months.
I was self-sabotaging.
I felt the pressure of not doing enough because I hadn’t hit that income goal yet.
And this made me feel bad about myself, and in turn, instead of working on my blog, I would have days where I was so unmotivated.
I would only do one or two things that I had set out to do for my blog.
I wasn’t achieving the blogging goals I’d set out to do for that week, and it was no wonder.
I thought I couldn’t achieve it, so I felt like “what was the point” and ended up not taking action.
Mind you, I didn’t realise this right away, but I knew I wanted to get better.
So I started implementing “I am” affirmations throughout the day.
Affirmations like “I am successful” or “I am a go-getter.”
And honestly, at first, it felt like a lie saying those things.
It didn’t ring true, and my mind was like “that’s not true!”
Then I remembered what Kathrin Zenkina and other mindset coaches had shared about before:
If “I am” statements don’t ring true, you can start with “I am choosing to believe that…”
So I reframed my “I am” statements to “I am choosing to believe that I am successful” and it felt believable.
And since I started incorporating morning affirmations into my routine, I’ve felt a lot better.
Until it came to the point that I started feeling good about myself.
I’ve had less self-sabotaging thoughts, and in turn, I’ve found that groove working on my blogging goals and taking action to make those goals into a reality little by little.
So much so that I get excited to work on my blogging tasks the night before that at times I wake up in the middle of the night wanting to work. 😂
This got me thinking about how I want to share with you 7 morning affirmations that you can incorporate into your routine if you’re also struggling with taking action and feeling the imposter syndrome.
These are affirmations that you can tell yourself throughout the day, not just in the morning.
7 Morning Affirmations for Blogging Success
My success is inevitable, and I am always on the right path
I give full credit of this affirmation to Kathrin Zenika of Manifestation Babe.
I first heard it through her and it’s become my go-to.
And gives me that extra confidence.
It’s an affirmation that I’ve been telling myself daily especially now that I’m working on relaunching my signature online course on how to start a blog.
And I know that I need to feel good in order to take that inspired action and that starts with good thoughts!
I am a magnet for abundance.
This one is to address any limiting beliefs you have around abundance.
Like if you have a scarcity mindset e.g. there are not enough opportunities or if you get affected by other bloggers’ success.
Remember: there is room for everyone.
So let’s lift each other up!
Or maybe you’re struggling with money blocks.
If these are limiting beliefs around money, I tweak this statement to “I am a magnet for money”
I am grateful
Gratitude is a powerful way to shift your mood and to feel joy.
An integral part of my morning routine is to write down three things I am grateful for and I try to make sure that these three things are different daily because there is so much to be grateful for!
If you’re also doing a gratitude list, write what exactly it is you are grateful for and why you are grateful for each item in your list.
Somedays, I start my day by repeating the sentence “Thank you” and it helps too!
Amazing things are coming to me
Expect amazing things will come to you to speed up your blogging success.
Believe that the best opportunities are yet to come and that things are always aligning in your favour.
I am good enough
Because you are!
You are already worthy of those blogging dreams of yours.
Here are other quotes about this topic that I love:
I create the life I want to live
You are in control of your life and your future.
And you can choose to feel joy and success as if your desires have already manifested!
I am a blogging boss building my online empire with love and purpose
This another favourite affirmation and it also serves as a great reminder.
Own and embody that boss attitude.
You are amazing, so keep reminding yourself of it!
So those are 7 morning affirmations that you can start with to help you with your blogging success.
If you feel the need to add more, then do so.
And again, if you have a hard time believing in these affirmations when you say them, start with “I am choosing to believe that…”
I would also like to share with you a few ways you can incorporate these morning affirmations into your day:
- Write them down multiple times
- Say them aloud
- Say them in front of a mirror
- Write them in a notebook and read the affirmations to yourself in the morning
- Make an audio recording of yourself saying the affirmations and listen to the recording
