All about how affirmations work and how to use them correctly.
What are affirmations?
Affirmations especially composed phrases, the regular repetition of which sets the subconscious mind to new goals.

There are both positive and negative types of statements. For example, negative words from childhood can remain with us in the conscious or unconscious mind, which we then strengthen throughout our lives. Such attitudes can become a serious obstacle to success, internal balance, and harmony. Positive statements made with confidence, on the contrary, help people make significant positive changes in their lives.
