How do Positive Affirmations Work?
The human brain is an incredible organ that has the ability to reorganize itself. It does this by forming new connections between brain cells – this process is called neuroplasticity.
You can utilize your brain’s neuroplasticity to learn new skills, such as a foreign language or a musical instrument. But did you know that your brain’s neuroplasticity can also allow you to change your mindset and increase your self-confidence?
Buddha once said – “Whatever one frequently thinks and ponders upon, that will become the inclination of his mind.”
In other words – if we consistently think to ourselves that we’re weak, unworthy and stupid – even though none of those are actually true – our brain will start to believe it.
Thus, it becomes a vicious cycle.
On the flipside, if we repeatedly and consistently repeat positive personal affirmations, we can reprogram our brain to start believing that those things are true.
Why are “I Am” Affirmations So Powerful
“I Am” are two of the most powerful words you can speak.
Because unlike most of the thousands of words we speak every day that are directed at someone else, “I Am” affirmations are spoken directly to ourselves.
We have the ability to determine WHO and WHAT we are. Nobody else has the right to speak into your life unless you give them that right.
It doesn’t matter if someone tells you “you are weak,” because the words you speak to yourself (your “I Am” affirmations) are infinitely more powerful.
YOU have the ability to create your own reality.

Positive affirmations can be a powerful way to reprogram your brain, but it’s important to remember that you can’t just repeat these to yourself one or two times and expect things to change.
Positive affirmations require a consistent effort – you have to give your brain the chance to form these new neural connections and replace your old, negative thought patterns.
Finally, another positive way to change your mindset and improve your self-confidence is through subliminal messaging. A great tool to do this are the Real Subliminal MP3’s that are available for instant download here.
