I soon started to read books about money and shifted my beliefs about money. I joined DA (Debtor's Anonymous - a 12 step support program) where I learned how to create a Spending Plan and more importantly, how to follow it. By using affirmations I was able to create a life that I love to live and financial reserves that allows me to take care of myself in present and in future. I now live in a state of abundance, not scarcity.
"Be careful what you ask for, you may get it," simply means that you must be careful about your language when you are giving commands to your mind. To be perfectly clear, phrase your affirmations following Top Ten Tips below. To those of you who are skeptical about theory, I know it seems strange at first, I ask you to consider possibility that this version of how things work may actually result in outcomes you always wanted. Some of you may want to talk with a coach to help you clarify what it is you really want and how to phrase your affirmations. It does take some practice. After all, you will be changing a lifetime of functioning one way, what I call "hard wired programming," and behavioral patterns. Experiment! I would love to hear about your results.

Have You Appreciated Someone Today?Written by Ed Sykes

Well, you should have seen looks on nurses’ faces. First, they had a look of surprise. Then they were all smiling from ear to ear. Several faces turned red. But all of them had a look of appreciation as they said, “Thank you.”
Why did they have a surprised look on their faces? Was this first time someone other than another nurse had acknowledged them? When was last time someone showed appreciation to them?
It only took fifteen seconds to put a smile on their faces and have them feel good about themselves. Take time every day to appreciate your employees, your family, and other people that are doing a good job. It might be only appreciation they receive and will make a difference in their day.
Read my article, Appreciate to Motivate, to find out how to make your appreciation count every time. You will also feel good doing it.
