With both feet, I’m in. Scott Adams, Dilbert creator, in his recent book talked about affirmations. (I’m assuming it was in his recent book because he took the blog posts down, and I had to seriously hunt for them in the cache of Google).
For a long time, i’ve plated around with them.
I wanted to believe, I wanted to reset and ralibrate my mind to make them work, but in practice they were always just a sconch off putting for me. Felt like I shouldn’t need ‘em. Felt like I should have my own identity. Damn that Stuart Smalley.
I didn’t believe. I tried, but I felt stupid. It was the inner lunatic or whatever. Doing something without being 100% into it. Dumb
I’m not gonna get all scientoligist on you, but I believe that we can create our own realities. I believe that it takes massive action (you Secret people make me wretch with your lazy manifestations of material crap). I believe that you can do whatever you want.
Scott Adams is inarguably more successful than me. I’d betcha my wife’s hotter and smarter than his, but I’d concede virtually every other metric to the man, and I’ve never met his wife. If Affirmations are his kludge, why not use ‘em? I could probably, given time, invent my own kludge, but why?
I’ll be saying affirmations each morning. With intention and all my heart. I’m gonna write the goals I got down 3x daily. I’ll have 6 total goals; 2 30 day goals, 2 90 day goals, and 2 year long goals. Once I’m into that, I’ll add a couple more.
Affirmations are the way to make the world the way you want it, starting from the inside out. You make yourself by stating affirmations (I take action to achieve my six goals). And then you expand the things you can control. I’ve gotten the theory, but it’s time to quit being someone that talks about prospecting, to being someone who prospects.
