Culturally we are not taught to speak positive affirmations, especially not about ourselves. It is rare for an African woman to go about saying how fabulous she is – if you had that tendency, your mum probably beat it out of you or something. So we understand how difficult it might be to consciously say positive words to yourself, however if you want to reach your goals and dreams in life, you need to reach deep inside yourself for inspiration and encouragement and affirmations are a great way to do that. These positive affirmations for African women will help you get over your natural inhibitions 🙂

How to use affirmations

The best time is early in the morning or late at night – when you have very little distraction. Pick one affirmation at a time (one per day or per week) and think of your goals and dreams. Concentrate and mean it when you say it aloud with your whole heart.
