In this article, I’ve put together a list of positive affirmations for work colleagues; both for you to be a better team player and integrate with your colleagues, and some you can share with your coworkers.
I’ve done this because I know how complicated and stressful the workplace dynamic can be. There are often lots of different personalities, the stress of work and deadlines, office politics, and so on.
The fact is, however, that we spend most of our time with work colleagues. More than with our loved ones, in some instances.
So, it’s vital that you build strong, trusting relationships with your colleagues. You need to know they have your best interests in mind, and you have theirs.
I hope the affirmations in this post help you do exactly that – and help you build a more fulfilling and rewarding career.

When Should I Say These Affirmations?
Everyone finds a different time and place to say their affirmations that work for them. I often hear people saying you should repeat them in the morning, and last thing at night.
For me personally, I like to say my affirmations in the morning before I start to take on the day. I don’t say them before bed.
I will repeat them throughout the day if I have a quiet moment and need to remind myself why I’m doing something.
I found this particularly useful at work. If I was working on a tough project or things were not going my way, I’d take a moment to remind myself why I was the best person for the job and how I was going to get the desired end result.
Honestly, I did well in my last job and attribute a lot of that success to repeating targeted affirmations and creating the right mindset.
Find a time and place that works for you, but be sure to repeat them daily.
How to Make Affirmations Work for You
Affirmations only work if you find the ones that are best suited to you, and repeat them daily.
By repeating your chosen affirmations on a regular basis, you will literally change the way your mind – both conscious and subconscious – thinks.
Your affirmations will become familiar, like a new reality. Not only will it feel real and achievable, when you reach your desired goals it will feel natural.
Almost like you’ve been here before or this was always the expected outcome.
Affirmations are incredibly powerful. They’ve changed the life of many a famous and influential businessman, leader, visionary, influencer, and so on.
By stating what they wanted to achieve, they were able to achieve it. You can do the same too. You have to believe in what you’re saying and stick to repeating them.
