200 Most Inspiring Words of Empowerment and How To Use Them

Sometimes all it takes is a few powerful words to give you the motivation and confidence needed to achieve your goals. Today I’m sharing the complete list of positive words of empowerment to help you feel confident, encouraged, and in control of your life.

When used properly, the right word can help raise your vibration so you can attract your dreams. Let’s find your perfect power word!

Why Words Are Powerful

Words are powerful because they have the ability to shape your thoughts, emotions, and actions. The words you use to describe yourself and your abilities can either empower you or hold you back. 

When you use positive and empowering words, you’re far more likely to feel confident, motivated, and capable of manifesting your desires. On the other hand, negative and disempowering words attract self-doubt, fear, and limiting beliefs. 

In other words, the power of words comes from how you feel when you speak them! The higher up on the emotional guidance scale you are, the easier it is to achieve your goals.

This is how the law of attraction works: the universe is going to bring you experiences that match your dominant thoughts and feelings. So, by choosing your words with purpose, you can harness the power of language to manifest your dreams.

How To Use Words of Empowerment

Using words of empowerment is all about changing the way you talk to yourself and others. As you do this, you’ll begin to adopt new and improved beliefs about yourself and what’s possible. Choosing to upgrade your language is a powerful way to heal every area of your life so that you can thrive!

Here are the best ways to integrate words of empowerment words into your life: 

Positive Affirmations

A positive affirmation is just a statement you make that you want to become true. So you can build your own positive affirmation using your favorite empowerment word.

Start by becoming aware of any negative self-talk, and try rephrasing it in a more positive way. As you upgrade your language, your beliefs about your abilities will begin to evolve.

It’s important not to be too hard on yourself as you go through this process. But in general, just become more self-aware of what you’re affirming in the following situations:

  • Your inner voice/self-talk  
  • The stories you tell about yourself
  • What you notice and say about other people

A good rule of thumb is, if you don’t want more of it to show up in your life, don’t say it.

There’s always a way to be authentic while still choosing your words that support your intentions. For example, instead of saying “I can’t do that,” try saying “I’m working on improving my skills in that area.”

This small shift in language can have a big impact on how you and others perceive your abilities and potential!

The more you choose words that empower, inspire, and uplift, the more confident and successful you’ll become. I have tons of positive affirmations for you to use, if you need examples:

Empowerment Word of the Day

Incorporating a word of the day into your daily vocabulary is a great way to start using empowerment words. 

Choose a word from the list above that resonates with you, and use it throughout the day in your conversations and thoughts. This can help you stay focused on your goals and maintain a positive mindset. It’s amazing how much better your day can unfold just by tweaking your language a bit!  

Here are some ideas to incorporate your empowerment word into your day:

  • Use it as an intention for yoga practice
  • Enter a reminder in your phone for an empowering boost mid-day
  • Look for ways to use it to uplift others
  • Ask yourself how you can embody the essence of your empowerment word while facing challenges

Do you meditate? Meditation is the most powerful way to raise your vibration so you can feel more comfortable in your own skin. You can use your empowerment word as a mantra for meditation. A lot of people find repeating a word much easier than clearing their mind altogether.

Set aside a few minutes per day to focus on your word and repeat it to yourself. I like to do this while I’m falling asleep at night, but it’s alway a beautiful way to begin your morning routine.

Using colored mala beads will help you keep track of your repetitions and manifest experiences that match the vibration of your power word.
