    It’s neuropathies you are building. We get these messages from childhood or over time and we think they are true and accepted. This helps instill positive ones. I once heard worrying is just negative affirmations- made sense to me . Also what we focus on expands - quantum physics

I would appreciate feedback from you and your followers on how I can improve my current videos as I am just an Engineer that is clueless about camera setups and videography. So I feel like an idiot each time I make a video :)

    Loved it! I think the fact of standing in front of a mirror and saying these affirmations out loud becomes powerful. I tried it, and in my case, it helped me create the conditions for my mind to start thinking more about these things in those moments which led me to basically have internal conversations with myself and helped me come up with the solutions I needed. This happens just because we're taking time from our day to put our thoughts into it, such as we do when we talk out our problems with friends and then come up with solutions together. It's about listening to ourselves, which we don't do very often. Matt, thanks for sharing this in such a real and clean way!

    Hello, Matt. It's good that you asked your partner to help you with this deal! This kind of deep connection and sincerity between you both is unique, appreciate it!) I tried affirmations but it didn't work...then I asked my inner self what I should change and what mistakes I made. And I worked out 3 rules for me : 1) No mirror) I don't like talking to myself in front of the mirror) I feel really strange and embarrassed... as if I'm forcing myself ...No motivation, no incentive 2) Do it in bed in the morning before getting up. 5 am, I lie in peace and silence, close my eyes to feel this moment and then start using my affirmations. 3) Old goes, new comes Now I'm looking for some new affirmations because I'm sure that some of them I don't need anymore. They resonated with me when I was in a special period in my life, but now they don't. So, I agree with the phrase "nothing is eternal and unchangeable." Maybe you just need to find another approach to this practice. Have a nice day and we're waiting for your next video)

    Fellow enneagram 1 here 🙌🙌 - I had a feeling you are a type 1 from the beginning of the video 😁. Self affirmation is actually pretty scientific, it’s just like our physical health and what we eat, when we eat good nutritious and healthy food, our body becomes healthy. Positive self-affirmations are just like healthy food for our soul and mind, when they are positive and healthy, they nourishes our soul and mind too! 💛

    for anyone who wants to try affirmations, what helped me is my therapist encouraged me to start with ones that are objectively true even if they're minor. like, instead of the ones he started with, I said, "I am great at taking care of my dogs. I am a good dog mom." then once those got comfy, I moved on to more cornier-feeling ones lol
