11 Thoughts to Help Empower Yourself Every Morning

Set yourself up for a happier, more successful day.

What you do and think during the first hour after you wake up sets the tone for the entire day. Here are a few empowering thoughts to feed your mind first thing in the morning for a better, happier, and more successful day!

1. Today Is a New Day

2. Seek out the Good and Beautiful

3. I Am the Best I Can Be at Every Moment

If the moment results in something positive, celebrate and remember it so you can make it happen again! If it doesn’t turn out so great, remember that too and learn from it so you can handle it better next time!

You are the very best YOU right now and you are constantly learning and improving! How awesome is that!

4. I Have the Power to Choose Happiness

5. Tomorrow Hasn’t Happened

“Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow, it empties today of its strength.“ ~ Corrie Ten Boom

Every second you spend today worrying about what may or may not happen tomorrow, you lose out forever. While being proactive and actually doing something to help make a better tomorrow is always a good thing, simply stressing out and worrying about it won’t change anything — and you miss out on the opportunity to make today great (which in turn could very possibly have influenced tomorrow in a very positive way!).

6. The Past Doesn’t Define Me

7. Other People Don’t Define Me

8. I Don’t Have to Know Everything

9. Mistakes and Failures are My Best Teachers

10. Feeling Sad or Hurt Doesn’t Mean I’ll Never Heal

11. Life Goes On
