We all go through times when we are just frustrated or having a bad day, or week. One way to re-group and get

The purpose of positive self-talk is to help build self-confidence. We all have times when we could use a little
boost, so keep on reading if you want to find out how to build your

Your biggest obstacle is usually you. If you are thinking or having negative thoughts, about even one thing

What really matters is that whatever you say either to yourself or out loud needs to be stated in positive manor

am choosing to be happy today.”
Whenever you are feeling overwhelmed or feeling like life is getting you down, stop and take a moment to give
yourself a little boost. Say one of the positive comments you have come up with and remind yourself that it will be
