Do affirmations for self improvement really work?

Talking to Yourself with Affirmations

Affirmations are phrases you tell yourself or other people. An example of an affirmation, one that Tony Robbins loves by the way, is

.
Day by day, in every way, I am getting better and better.Tony Robbins

This may sound picturesque and old fashioned, which is hardly surprising, as it comes from Dr.Émile Coué. He directed a clinic in France in the beginning of the 20th century. His main technique to treat thousands of patients was to repeat this affirmation 20 times, twice a day. Although he claims he never actually cured anyone, and they cured themselves, these cures certainly did happen. You can get his SELF MASTERY through conscious autosuggestion (Illustrated) to read on your Kindle.
