Being a man in today’s society can often feel alienating or confusing. It can be hard to morph yourself into the self-assured man’s man you see plastered everywhere. Where do you even begin the journey to better yourself and find your place in the world?
It all starts from within. If you think it, you start to believe it, and it will soon come true. Some might call this “manifesting” — if you think and believe it will happen, it actually will. In a roundabout way, you can consider positive affirmations as a form of manifesting, though one much more steeped in scientific basis. Using positive affirmations essentially tricks your brain into actually believing these thoughts. Repeating these positive affirmations like a mantra has been shown to rewire your brain to think more positively. And those positive thoughts translate to positive actions!
