Tell yourself each day, “I can and I will.” We’ve all heard of affirmations, but have we tried it? Have you truly given it a fair chance? Have you told yourself how strong you are? Have you told yourself that you are capable of achieving everything? Try this, start your day by professing positive affirmations aloud. If not for ten minutes then set your timer for 60 seconds.

Say to yourself, “I am successful. This day will be successful because I say so. I will learn something new today. I will have a good day. I love myself. I am worthy of love.” Having a positive outlook on life does not mean you are unaware of the world’s current events, it simply means you are choosing not to let things that aren’t in your power control your mood.
