Affirmations are positive statements that can help you to challenge and overcome self-sabotaging and negative thoughts. When you repeat them often and believe in them, you can start to make positive changes. Positive affirmations work because of a scientific principle known as neuroplasticity. Neuroplasticity is the ability of our words to rewire our brains . Kids do it all the time but as we grow older, we get set in our thought patterns, and then it becomes very difficult for us to rewire our brains. The whole NLP( Neuro-Linguistic Programming) studies are related to this very truth that our words can program our brains, our thinking and ultimately the outcome of our thinking can be actually seen in our lives in reality.
