Another study showed that daily positive affirmations help many people battle stress and the severe side effects associated with the condition.
Lisa Legault, a psychologist at Clarkson University, is an unwavering supporter of using positive affirmations. She believes that affirmations can help to significantly boost your self-esteem, resulting in improved performance in different aspects of life. Affirmations help to build a positive and feel-good frame of mind. When you have an optimistic mindset, you tend to think positively a majority of the time, and your positive mindset can easily be used to battle negative thoughts that might try to infiltrate your mind. This helps to build self-belief, which in turn shapes your self-confidence instilling the ‘I can’ mindset. When you start taking action, you eventually take charge of your goals and become successful in life.
The effective use of affirmations to achieve success in every pillar of your life largely depends on some prerequisites.
