Musings + Affirmations: Courage is my voice against fear.





It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies,

but just as much to stand up to our friends.

J.K. Rowling

Affirmation: Courage is my voice against fear.

Fear is a natural part of life, but success is often determined by whether I face that fear or not. I have the courage to move forward in spite of my fears.

Within me is the strength to stand up to the silencing effects of fear. I have the courage to speak for myself and allow my voice to be heard. While fear tries to paralyze me, the courage in my soul sets me free.

The fear of rejection cannot stop me from trying. I conquer my fears with steadfast determination, instead of becoming immobilized by apprehension.

The voice of insecurity tries to barricade me from the world with feelings of inadequacy. I ignore those feelings and allow self-confidence to accompany me wherever I go.

I have been created with love for a specific purpose. My future is mine to claim and is worth fighting for. I conquer fear, doubt, and disbelief though a clear understanding of who I am and my destiny.

Critical and condemning words said to me fall on deaf ears.

Only encouragement and positive messages are allowed to reach my ears. I strengthen myself by being selective about what I allow my mind to ruminate upon.

Self-confidence gives me courage against the fear of inferiority.

I am worthy to be where I am and I perform my job well. I am free from the need to make others look bad in order to feel good about myself.


Today, I choose to believe my best day is ahead of me.


My passion for success is stronger than my fear of failure.

    It’s funny how we choose to look at things. I like to amuse myself, so I decided to make fear my friend. I allow fear to be my beacon. Which ever way fear wants me to go, i go the opposite direction. He follows me nonetheless, begging me to turn back. And when i get where I’m going, he’s nowhere to be found. :)
