and repeat affirmations constantly.
The problem is, we typically don't pay attention
to exactly what those affirmations are saying.

We may project confidence to the world around us,
while our inner dialogue says...

I hope I don't blow it.
Affirmations are self fulfilling prophecies.
If we say, This is never going to work
... then chances are excellent it never will.
