Remember This Video? Jessica’s Daily Affirmations Then And Now

When asked about the secret to their success, many celebrities and profitable business people credit the power of positive self-talk and obsessively envisioning their own success as a great help for actually going out there and achieving it.

However, as Jessica Chatfield shows us, this approach for this doesn’t only work for the rich and famous. It can have a powerful impact on the lives of everyone, no matter how young or old.

This popular video shows how one little girl, Jessica Chatfield, in the playful spirit of a child, has discovered what positive words can do for her day. She may be using affirmations unknowingly, but the result is still the same! She feels good. She has become her own greatest cheerleader! We can all learn from this.

This video is 50 seconds of pure positivity and can most definitely put a smile on your face. But most importantly of all, it shows the power of the positive spoken word, something we all need to learn from.

Her father, who uploaded the original video in 2009, captioned the video with: ‘Jessica has a day where she's feeling … really good about her life'.

What Is Jessica Chatfield Up To Now? (2017)

Jessica is now considered a viral star, with the original video reaching 19.5 Million views as of December 2017. However, she has actively stayed away from the public eye since and is currently a sophomore at Southern Methodist University in Dallas. With a double-major in business management and political science, Jess still claims to be a reasonably positive person.

“I don’t stand on the bathroom counter these days, but that video’s still a good representation of who I am!”

Jess' happiness and positivity also manifests itself in her caring attitude; her friends call her the ‘mom' of their group due to her warm-hearted nature and daily check-ins.

When Refinery29 asked for an update on her affirmations, Jessica said,

“I like my friends and family. I like my school. I like my clothes. I like my shoes – oh no, this sounds so vapid! I like my books. I like my house. I like my sorority. I like my hair.”
