Yes, I know it can feel corny at first, talking to yourself in words you aren’t used to saying. The really amazing thing, though, is that it works! You become what you tell yourself you’ll become – so make sure you’re telling yourself something incredible!

So when you hang onto optimism and stay positive in hard times, you’ll give yourself the gift of a long er, happier life!
