In the last few months I've used a number of self-help techniques that have been great but it was the angry thoughts inside my head I desperately needed to get rid of before I did something stupid.
I started looking for books on changing thought patterns and when I read the blurb for this book and some of the reviews it convinced me to give it a go. That was 6 weeks ago and by adopting some of the techniques in this book I have utterly transformed my life.
I had no idea how much I mentally or verbally beat myself up all the time. This book has opened up a world of possibilities for me. Every day, most of the day I either talk to myself out loud, in my head or on tape and all I say are positive things. Over and over I repeat positive things. Initially I was yelling at myself to just drown out the negative thoughts bouncing back but over the weeks I have become considerably quieter.
I'm now blown away by how many negative people there are in this world. I hear constant negative things from people and I never heard any of this before. In fact, I think I was one of the worst culprits for negative self talk. Suddenly people are smiling at me and seeking out my company, the most incredibly lucky things are happening to me and things that I couldn't do because I wasn't capable before are suddenly a breeze.
I don't really know how it has happened but 6 months after my husband walked out, I now feel happier than I ever have before. I feel so completely in control of my life and my thoughts. I can't wait to start creating the story of my future.
This book is not the most well written book and there are a lot of things repeated, but if you take on board what is being said, you'll understand that that repetition is designed not only to get the messages into your head but also to build a complete picture of what you need to do.
Seriously, if your struggling to find happiness in life or to get your life moving forward after some kind of trauma, then read this and just drown yourself in it as I did. Don't hang onto hurt. You won't believe how wonderful it feels when you stop beating yourself up.
I completely turned my life and attitude around in 7 months! I'm so proud of myself. I continue to use positive self-talk to achieve what I want in life. All I have to do is tell the Universe what I want, and it gives it to me. So remember folks, if you tell the Universe "I apply for jobs everyday, but nobody calls me back," then the Universe will bring you back that reality you've just asked for. So be careful what you ask of it! Enjoy your life, keep a positive attitude, and your positive thoughts will blossom into a positive reality. Go as far as you can see, and when you get there, you'll be able to see a little further.
