Affirmations are kind of like a super-power: When used in a positive way, they can do amazing things for your mindset and mental health.
However, on the flip side, when they’re negative and used to beat yourself up, unfortunately, they can cause real damage.
What is an Affirmation?
Affirmations are affirming statements that you repeat to yourself in order to convince or rewire your brain to believe certain things.
It’s widely believed that what we repeat to ourselves becomes true.
Therefore, if we repeat negative statements, such as, “I’m useless at this!” Then, over time, our brains will start to believe this is true.
You then become trapped in a negative cycle as everything negative you repeat about yourself comes true, so you repeat even more negative stuff.
This is why POSITIVE affirmations can be so powerful. If you repeat positive affirmations to yourself everyday – for example, “I’m strong AF!” – your brain will start to believe it, which, in turn, makes it true.
This is why affirmations for confidence as be so powerful. You basically convince yourself that you are confident and, before you know it, you simple ARE.
What are daily affirmations?
Quite simply, daily affirmations are affirmations that you repeat to yourself every single day in order to rewire your thought processes.
Repeating affirmations needs to become a habit in order for them to be the most affective.
Daily affirmations can be used for a range of problems, from anxiety, to confidence.
You can also use affirmations to express gratitude in order to give your mindset a boost.

What Are The Most Powerful Affirmations?
The best affirmations are the ones that resonate with you personally, otherwise, what’s the point?
You need to feel emotion about the affirmation and be connected to it somewhat for it to really work to its fullest.
Therefore, it’s handy to find the best affirmations for the feeling that you want to affirm.
When you find an affirmation that you really click with, repeating it will come very naturally and you’ll find it super-affective.
