The Doctors discuss a study published in the Journal of Child Development, which found kids who were struggling with confidence did better on maths tests when they told themselves nice things. When the students said phrases like, “I will do my very best,” and "I am very good at this," had improved test scores, when compared to students who did not tell themselves nice things.
ER physician Dr. Travis Stork shares when he was a kid and he was faced with doing something scary, he would tell himself, "I can do it," and he feels this helped him push through and succeed.
The Doctors note this tactic can work for anyone at any age and encourage everyone to give themselves a verbal confidence booster when they need it!
