It is always your next move.
Scott Adams (of Dilbert fame) is a big fan of affirmations. So am I. He wrote his down. The goal is to write what you really want to achieve and say it over and over…and write it…over and over. Or at least 15 times a day.
Other than creating some sort of tangible thing for you to do, what is so helpful about affirmations? You are in charge and consciously programming yourself. Affirmations keep your mind focused on what you want rather than what you don’t want. Most – when left to daydream – can often run amuck thinking in all sorts of less than productive ways… worrying and fretting and then wondering why they are always worrying and fretting. Should be clear now.
Your Dream Goal – (if you have not prepared to achieve this dream – might be good to start as you begin to practice your affirmations) is a dream until you start to fill in the blanks with effort and focus. The only way to achieve a dream is to become it.
15 times a day…say it, write it, think it. Claim it.
The one thing you can be sure of: you will have less time to worry as it will now be filled with affirmations. Potentially, the more time you fill up with affirmations, the more productive you will become. ; )
*And why I am such a fan of Scott Adams… Our future looks amazing through the eyes of this child – from the Dilbert Blog.

Your right! Napoleon Hill told us that we can not begin to succeed until we have worked ourselves into a white hot desire. He even gave us six steps to follow in his book “Think and Grow Rich” in Chapter 2.
Please visit my blog. I am reviewing “Think and Grow Rich” chapter by chapter and I would appreciate your insights.
Napoleon Hill is a wonderful resource! Thank you for the invitation. I will check out your site. Thank you for stopping by.
I enjoyed reading your blog today, and I thought that you might be interested to learn that a new edition of Napoleon Hill’s classic book “Think and Grow Rich” has been published.
Its title is “Think and Grow Rich!” (subtitled) “The Original Version, Restored and Revised.” I am the editor/annotator of this new 412-page edition, which is really an homage to Dr. Hill. (For several years I was the editor-in-chief of “Think & Grow Rich Newsletter.”)
What I have done is this: to restore Dr. Hill’s book to its original manuscript content (it was first published in 1937, but was abridged in 1960), annotate it with more than 50 pages of endnotes (most of the persons and events he discusses are generally unknown to readers today), index it thoroughly, add an appendix with a wealth of additional information about Dr. Hill and his work, and revise the book in ways to help remove certain “impediments” to reading the book today (language that today would be considered obsolete, sexist or racist). None of these things had previously been done with TGR.
If you would like to learn a little more about this project, a quick visit to http://www.tgr-restored-revised.com will give you some details. The “Editor’s Foreword” provides more complete information, and the “Testimonials” page will demonstrate how well-received this new book is around the world.
Here is the book’s Amazon.com page…
The book is available on all the Amazon websites and most other online sellers, it can be ordered by any bookstore, and it will start appearing in bookstores soon. We also sell direct, at steep discounts, to personal success coaches and motivational speakers who use it for back-of-the-room sales and to teach Master Mind Study Groups.
Our edition of TGR! is superior in every way to other versions on the market. It is a trade paperback, not a pocket-size mass market paperback. It is unabridged. It is 412 pages versus 230+ (depending on the edition). It looks better, feels better, reads better than any other version. It is fast becoming the “version of choice” among Napoleon Hill devotees and other students of success and high achievement.
Thank you for your time and attention.
