Words Matter! Positive Affirmations to Reflect on in English and Espanol

mike gingerich positive affirmations

Words matter.  Words have power.  The words we say and reflect on impact our psyche, attitude, outlook, and even beliefs.  With this in mind, it is important that we have positive affirmations to reflect on.  Some call these "affirmations", others "positive manifestations", and others call it "positive thinking" or "mediation reflections".  Whatever you want to call it, (I'll call it affirmations to be simple), the words we speak, think, and reflect on can influence us so let's make them positive.

In this podcast, I do something different and give you an 8-minute audio and written list of positive affirmations that help me, and I hope can help you.

They are in English and Spanish (Español) both for two reasons. One, I'm learning Spanish so this is helpful for me to review, and, two, so a larger audience can benefit from these affirmations.  The audio version is spoken by my friend, Spanish tutor, and Ecuadorian tour guide Daniela Palacios.  Each affirmation is spoken first in English and then in Spanish.

If you prefer one language, then listen to your preferred language and simply reflect on what you heard while the statement is said in the other language.  Take your time, there's no rush!  This is for you...and for me.

Note: Every effort is being made to give credit for each statement where known.  Should you identify the author of a statement without one, send me the name to add for credit via my contact form.

Positive Affirmations:

Here’s what I know, when you decide to make something happen…it can.  Most people shrink back from challenges.  You don’t have to be like the others.  You have the power to CHOOSE.  You were born for more. Go for it.

Esto es lo que sé, cuando decides hacer que algo suceda... puede suceder. La mayoría de la gente retrocede ante los desafíos. No tienes que ser como los demás. Tienes el poder de ELEGIR. Naciste para más. Ve a por ello.


Happiness comes from inside. It doesn’t come from a person, place, or thing. It is an internal choice.

La felicidad viene de adentro. No proviene de una persona, lugar o cosa. Es una elección interna.


“Whether you think you can or can’t, you are right.” - Henry Ford. Our beliefs determine the heights we can achieve. We must eliminate limiting beliefs. They are self-sabotage. Upgrade your identity. You are gifted and capable. You are enough. You have nothing to prove, and nothing to lose. You are a badass!  You are one mindset shift away from the life you want.

“Tanto si crees que puedes como si no, tienes razón”. - Henry Ford. Nuestras creencias determinan las alturas que podemos alcanzar. Debemos eliminar las creencias limitantes. Son autosabotaje. Mejora tu identidad. Eres dotado y capaz. Tú eres suficiente. No tienes nada que probar, y nada que perder. ¡Eres un cabrón! Estás a un cambio de mentalidad de la vida que quieres.


Choose to be with people who will celebrate your accomplishments as if they were their own.

I am resilient.  I am a risk-taker.  I have only one life to live, I will live it well.  I will add value and be uncommon.  I will blaze my own trail.  

Soy resiliente. Soy un tomador de riesgos. Solo tengo una vida para vivir, la viviré bien. Agregaré valor y seré poco común. Abriré mi propio camino.


“You don’t have to endure a life of plain, normal or redundant.  You can create a life worth living.  What’s stirring in your soul?  Don’t let fear keep you trapped.  Never let the unknown be the reason you stay the same.  Dream big.  Work Smart. Never give up.” - Angus Nelson

“No tienes que soportar una vida simple, normal o redundante. Puedes crear una vida que valga la pena vivir. ¿Qué se agita en tu alma? No dejes que el miedo te mantenga atrapado. Nunca dejes que lo desconocido sea la razón por la que permaneces igual. Sueño grande. Trabajo inteligente. No rendirse nunca." -Angus Nelson

“You have to believe the impossible for your life. Stop listening to people that tell you what you can’t do, instead of what you CAN do.  It’s time to take your power back.  Commit to saying yes to a life without limits, you don’t have time to waste.”  -  Emmanuel Acho

“Tienes que creer lo imposible para tu vida. Deja de escuchar a las personas que te dicen lo que no puedes hacer, en lugar de lo que SÍ PUEDES hacer. Es hora de recuperar tu poder. Comprométete a decir sí a una vida sin límites, no tienes tiempo que perder.” -Emanuel Acho


You will end up where you need to be, with who you’re meant to be, and doing what you should be doing….Keep going!

Terminarás donde debes estar, con quien debes estar y haciendo lo que debes hacer... ¡Sigue adelante!


“Over time, people regret what they didn’t do more than what they did do.  Regrets of inaction are far more common than regrets of action.” Dan Pink

“Con el tiempo, la gente se arrepiente más de lo que no hizo que de lo que hizo. Los arrepentimientos por la inacción son mucho más comunes que los arrepentimientos por la acción”. Dan Pink


I strive to find and follow my unique purpose in this life.  My differences make me exceptional. The most important voice to listen to is my own. I don’t work for money, money works for me.

Me esfuerzo por encontrar y seguir mi propósito único en esta vida. Mis diferencias me hacen excepcional. La voz más importante para escuchar es la mía. Yo no trabajo por dinero, el dinero trabaja para mí.

“Don’t ask what the world needs.  Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it!  Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”  - Howard Thurman

“No preguntes qué necesita el mundo. ¡Pregunta qué te hace cobrar vida y hazlo! Porque lo que el mundo necesita es gente que haya cobrado vida”. -Howard Thurman


Don’t make a living, make a life!

¡No te ganes la vida, hazte la vida!


You are enough.  You deserve more.  You are worthy of more.  You have what it takes!  I want to remind you, you are extraordinary!

Tú eres suficiente. Tu mereces más. Eres digno de más. ¡Tienes lo que se necesita! ¡Quiero recordarte que eres extraordinario!


I found that nothing in life is worthwhile unless you take risk, nothing.

Descubrí que nada en la vida vale la pena a menos que te arriesgues, nada.
