Affirmations are a surprisingly simple way to start your day off right. Use the power of your own words to create an affirmation that propels you forward toward the person you want to be. If you're hesitating to try something that sounds a little "woo-woo," remember that "cells that fire together, wire together." You can create and strengthen neural pathways that help you become the person you desire to be. If it still seems a little soft, consider these people who use affirmations regularly: Jim Carey, Denzel Washington, Jennifer Lopez, Oprah Winfrey, Will Smith, and Arnold Schwarzenegger to name a few.
