At just three years old, Ayaan has already mastered the art of positivity. 

The adorable boy's positive affirmation first went viral in October 2019 and has started making the rounds on social media again.

"I am smart, I am blessed, I can do ANYTHING!" 

According to his mom, Ayaan first learned the mantra when he was only two years old and it came as a total surprise when he started repeating the phrase "out of nowhere" during a morning walk to school.  

"I taught Ayaan this positive affirmation on his 2nd Birthday last year. In hopes that he would one day memorize it, understand it and use it as a motivational tool whenever he needed it. Well, he shocked me this morning.... he started repeating it, so I pulled out my phone. He ended (with enthusiasm lol) once we made it to our destination. So proud of the little boy he is growing into," she wrote via Instagram.
