So, take a look at the video and notice his body language. What does his body language convey to you?
Now, try repeating the following sentences to yourself. Do it in front of a mirror and look straight to your own eyes. It does not matter if you do not believe them at the beginning because the more you repeat them they will come to you. You will see that at one point you will start feeling them and, most importantly, living them:
- I am amazing
- I am significant
- I am smart
- I am beautiful
- I am special
- I am great
- I LOVE MYSELF
