Affirmations are a proven, powerful way of changing your life. You're saying affirmations to yourself every day, whether you're aware of it or not. Think of the things you tell yourself, "I can't afford that," "I'm not smart enough," "That was stupid," "How can I possibly achieve my goal?" These are reinforcing statements that impress your subconscious and become a self-fulfilling prophecy.
