I haven’t kissed the feng shui frog for days, I haven’t said any embarrassing mantras while looking at myself in the mirror and I have experienced many moments where I’ve thought ‘I’m three months in and getting nowhere. Money, where the hell are you?’ This is not good. Bad habits haven’t just crept in, they’ve taken over and my badass self is bound and gagged in a back room.
It’s at times like this that I need Jack Canfield the chicken man. I watched a few of his You Tube videos and I like what he says.
There was a short one on how to start your day well. Jack says that you should banish negative thoughts from your mind as they serve no purpose. He’s right and this is something I am coming to realise. Worry and negativity are utterly pointless and I’m done with them. Begone!
He also suggested thinking of your long-term goals and saying them out loud first thing in the morning and last thing at night. I’m going to do that. I have got lazy and am not saying Jen’s mantras any more.
So, from tomorrow, I will say daily:
- I am a great novelist.
- I earn a lot of money
- I have time for friends and family.
- Big PR retainers are coming my way.
- A passive income will buy me time for fun and travel.
Those five might change over time, but that’s what I came up with. I think half my problem is, and I’ve said this many times, I have too many fingers in too many pies. I intend to keep going like this until it becomes blindingly obvious as to where I should be directing my attention – in an ideal world, this would be novel writing, but that isn’t going to earn me a penny until the book is finished and even then….what was it I was saying about negative thoughts?
I continue to be a badass. It’s my new way of being.
