Feeling strong and powerful is essential to being a successful woman. In our patriarchy, it can be tough to find these feelings sometimes. But that’s why we need powerful, strong woman affirmations!
These affirmations will help you feel confident and capable in the face of any challenge. Read on for 100 empowering statements that will help you achieve your goals!
What is Strength?
In our world, because of the patriarchy we’ve been raised in, we often confuse strength and power with domination. But the truth is that strength and power are a lot more nuanced.
Strength is not just about being able to overpower someone physically. It’s also about having the inner power and determination to keep going, even when things are tough. True strength comes from within, and it can help us overcome any obstacle in our way.
It takes far more strength to have compassion for someone you are angry with and more strength to forgive someone who has wronged you. It takes more strength to stand up for what you believe in, even when everyone around you is trying to silence you.
What is Power?
We also tend to conflate power with dominance over another person. Power is the capacity or ability to influence the behavior of others. And we can influence others far more deeply when we seek to understand, listen, and connect.
And yet, power still comes from a place of confidence. It’s about feeling like you are in control of your life and your destiny. It’s about knowing your worth and believing that you can achieve anything you want.
Power is not something you’re born with—it is a learned skill. (To learn more about power and its importance to us as women, I highly recommend Kasia Urbaniak and her book, Unbound: A Woman’s Guide to Power, which is why I included it in my list of top 10 life-changing books for women.
How Affirmations Can Help You Build Your Power and Strength
Affirmations can help us build strength in a few ways. First, they remind us of our strengths and capabilities. Every time you read or recite these powerful affirmations for women, you reinforce the belief that you are strong and powerful. This can help you to stay confident in the face of any challenge. (Make sure to use the right words when you’re describing yourself as a strong woman.)
Affirmations can also help us to focus on our goals and stay motivated. When we have a clear goal in mind, it’s easier to take action steps towards achieving it. And when we feel strong and powerful, we are more likely to believe that we can achieve anything we set our minds to.
But just reading or speaking these powerful statements isn’t enough. You genuinely have to feel the affirmation in your body. If you speak the affirmation “I am a strong, powerful woman” but feel weak and deflated, the affirmation isn’t going to bolster your confidence in the way you want.
For this, I highly recommend the trick by Marisa Peer. Use the words “I chose” or “I am choosing.” For example, “I am choosing to believe I am a strong, powerful woman!”
