The New Year is upon us, and there is no better time to set intentions and make considerable changes in our lives. As you step into 2019, arm yourself for success with the powerful mantra that will change your life.
If there is one thing that this time of year is known for, it’s the motivation to set New Year’s resolutions, setting goals and putting our best foot forward as we take the first steps to make these dreams a reality. Unfortunately, the odds are not exactly in your favor with an estimated 80% of resolutions failing by February. While there is no guaranteed success, there are steps that you can take to help motivate and encourage yourself, propelling yourself toward becoming your best self.
The first question that you need to ask yourself is whether or not you’ve got your thinking straight. Your thoughts truly have the ability to either build you up or completely tear you down. If you want to make 2019 a year of personal growth and great accomplishments, you need to start by first freeing yourself of negative or toxic thinking, filling your mind with positivity and optimism.
One great way to build yourself up and invite positivity into your life is through the use of positive affirmations. This is the use of positive, self-focused statements that help to motivate us while focusing our subconscious mind on success.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)
This year I will embrace the fact that there is so much in this life that I still don’t know, so much that I have yet to learn. Rather than seeing this as intimidating or overwhelming, I will see this as an incredible opportunity. The quest for knowledge and new experiences will drive me and motivate me, encouraging me to step out of my comfort zone and truly embrace this life.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
This year I will truly learn to love and respect every aspect of myself. I will not only celebrate my strengths, but I will also embrace my flaws, quirks, and weaknesses as they are part of who I am as a person. Recognizing the importance of self-love and acceptance, I will make a conscious effort to better understand myself and the value that I bring to this world.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
This year I will learn to recognize the incredible power that can only be found in vulnerability and connection. I will open my heart and my mind to truly connecting with another person, writing our love story together. In doing so, I will accept that there are going to be good times, but there will also be challenges, and together we are stronger than either of us would be standing alone.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
This year I am going to step outside of my comfort zone, allowing myself to dream big and establish wild goals. I will acknowledge that in the past my greatest limitations have been within in my mind, and in doing so I will free myself to reach new heights. I will try new experiences, find joy in every day and welcome those who love me along for the ride.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
This year I will remember the importance of not only working hard but also playing hard. I will recognize that there is more to life than fame and fortune, slowing down to take in the smaller details of life each and every day, finding both joy and happiness. I will reconnect with my inner child, remembering the magic that I used to see in every moment.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
This year I will focus on reconnecting with my foundation in life, grounding myself through the connections that I have established with my family and friends. Rather than searching for greener pastures, I will refocus my attention on my own backyard. I will rediscover my roots and refamiliarize myself with not only who I am but where I come from.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
This year I am going to focus on my goals and dreams for the future, making myself a top priority in my own life. I will continue to respect and value those around me, but I will carve out the time necessary to work towards everything that I have wanted in life. In doing so, I will rediscover how strong and capable I am, taking on the world and rising to success.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
This year I am going to break free from my negative thinking and self-doubt, rediscovering my worth and all that I have to offer the world. I will find my place in life, and in doing so I will build my self-confidence and embrace my true self. In doing so, I will discover that the more I believe in myself, the more success I will achieve.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
This year I will shed my limitations and hesitations in life. I will stop trying to downplay who I am for others, instead embracing the crazy, loving, wild personality that I am. In doing so, I will face every day with a smile, complimenting others and bringing joy to the world around me. In order to do this, I will let go of anything that doesn’t bring happiness and positivity to my life.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
This year I will learn to show myself compassion and understanding. I will stop tearing myself down and, instead, become my own greatest cheerleader. I will no longer accept negativity or toxic energy in my life, shifting my thoughts to those of praise, motivation, and acceptance. Even in the face of failure, I will recognize that I have done my best, and that’s all that I can expect from myself.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
This year I will let go of my need to always stand independently, instead, welcoming other people into my life. I will search out ‘my people’, the friends that will connect with me, understand me and build me up in life. I won’t settle for less than I deserve, however, in maintaining this focus I will meet people who respect me and love me for who I am.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
This year I will learn to embrace responsibility and action in my life. While I won’t let go of the happy escape that my dreams provide, I will take steps to make my dreams a reality, transforming my life into everything that I have ever wanted. Recognizing that I, alone, have the power to change my life, I will reach greater heights.
