Affirmations are powerful. When we affirm something to ourselves, we are telling ourselves that it is, without question or objection, true. Learning to use positive affirmations routinely can help shift your self-talk to something more positive, and ultimately lead you to higher self-esteem, boosted confidence and brighter moods.
