The 5 Habits That Make You Happier

Do You Want to be Happy? 

This might sound like a silly question. Who wouldn’t want to be happy?? Well, it turns out that this is not the case for everyone.

I know, because I have been that person. I used to feel that I had “the right” to be angry, bitter and depressed since life had handed me such a shitty hand of cards.

Few things could provoke me more than people claiming that happiness has to come from within. My go-to response was, “Don’t you think I would have been happy if my life didn’t suck!!???”

I know I’m not alone in defending myself that way. I hear it all the time. Life sucks, so let’s ALL be miserable…..

Listen up!

My life isn’t perfect and I am far from perfect, but I am happier than I have ever been before! I wake up happy, grateful just to be alive, knowing that today I’m taking one step further towards my goals in this exciting journey called Life.

I don’t think a life without problems is realistic. It’s how we are able to deal with those problems that makes ALL the difference.

Ponder This

Your quality of life isn’t measured by how wealthy you are, the size of your house or how expensive your car is. Your quality of life isn’t measured by how healthy you are or what you look like.

Your quality of life is measured by how you FEEL. If you depend on other people and circumstances to make you happy, you’ll spend the rest of your life trying to change other people and control the world around you. The irony is that the only thing we can control is our own mind.

Who else but you controls how you think and feel? Only YOU can think your thoughts. Only YOU can feel your feelings. It’s time to stop the blame game. Join our next class to learn how:

The techniques you’ll learn in the class are based on science, it’s not a hype. Start TODAY by following these simple but effective tricks:

The 5 Habits That Make You Happier

1. Gratitude:
Write down 3 things every day that you are grateful for.
Read them, feel the gratitude.
Repeat daily with 3 new things/persons/events.
Here’s a helpful reminder/question if you can’t find anything to be grateful for:  What if you woke up tomorrow with only the things you were grateful for today?

2. Journaling:
Write just one or two sentences daily about something nice that happened that day. It doesn’t have to be HUGE. For example, you enjoyed the taste of your coffee that morning. Or perhaps you heard a bird chipper. You read a good book. A stranger smiled to you. Write it down. Re-live the moment, feel it. Repeat (Read it again, re-feel it again the next day, and the next).

3. Exercise:
Move that body! Go for a walk. Dance. Do a few jumping jacks to get a charge of the so-called happy hormones. 5 minutes daily or more. Start small. Just do something.

4. Meditation:

A relaxed mind is a happier mind. If you have never meditated before, you can always start by listening to guided mediations on apps or YouTube. When you think you’ve got the idea, try alone … You may have a topic or a goal you wish to meditate on, perhaps an intention, or just to clear your mind. Start with 10 minutes daily, increase to 30 minutes and more when you get the hang of it.

5. Random Acts of Kindness:
When you are kind to other people, you brighten their day. Being kind to others is also a way of being kind to yourself. It feels good to be kind! In a world where you can be anything, be kind. Watch the ripple effects…

The Secret Power of Nothing

I have been super-duper-busy with work and studies this past week. Heck, I’m almost always busy – I LOVE being busy with things that propel me forward!

However, in my eagerness to get a motherload done I “kinda forgot” one CRUCIAL thing.

Which is to do nothing. Wait? What??

Yeah. Doing nothing as in RELAXING.

And I don’t mean watching TV or reading. The mind is not turned off completely when you think you relax with a book, no matter how good it is. Hey, I’m an author – I want everybody and their uncle to read, but

You need to turn everything off.

Meditation, that’s what I’m talking about.

Breathe in…. breath out …. Let the thoughts come and go without paying attention to them. Just sit and breathe … deeply…

My personal fave is:
Inhale for 4 seconds
Natural stop, 4 seconds
Breathe out, 4 seconds
Natural stop, 4 seconds

repeat ….

30 minutes of meditation in the morning is my absolute minimum.
1 hour in the morning + 30 minutes midday + 30 minutes or more before I go to bed – now we’re talking!

But you know what? If you can’t manage to do NOTHING for any more than 15 minutes a day, that’s a good start!

A relaxed, calm state of mind is the only doorway to progress mentally. Relaxation of thought is the only access to Infinite Intelligence .

We all have to start somewhere. And keep it up … that’s the thing. I didn’t keep it up every day this week. When my mind works overtime with no room to relax and digest, the result is 100 % as expected: feeling overwhelmed.

And I do not like that feeling, that’s for sure!

So I’m taking charge of my life again by going back to my daily meditations, starting right NOW!

How ‘bout you? How often do you meditate?

If you haven’t done any meditation before, a good place to start is doing the exercises (aka meditations) by Charles Haanel which you’ll find in his The Master Key System – you may download this free PDF:

If you are into “The Secret” and Law of Attraction, you will LOVE the Master Key System! If you want to dig even deeper into that sort of things, I highly recommend joining The Master Key Experience where I’m working as a certified guide. Check it out here:

How To Beat the Crap out of Fear

What we Focus on Grows.

The choice is yours. What do you choose to focus on?

Courage Beats the Crap out of Fear

We all know that if you fear an activity, whethyer it’s flying or speaking in public, it takes courage to do it anyway – in spite of fear.

What many people do, myself included, is to focus on the very thing they fear. But if you think about this for a second – how on earth could concentrating on fear create any courage? What’s even worse is when you end up focusing on the fear itself. What we focus on grows, remember?

What would Benjamin do?

Back in January 2019, I tried the so-called ‘Franklin Makeover’ for the first time. In short, you choose a virtue you want more of and focus on it for a whole week. You observe the virtue in others as well as in yourself, and make a note of it every time you see a sign of it. What happens next is almost like magic…

I had chosen ‘courage’ as my virtue…. A couple of days into my ‘courage week’, I started to wonder if it was my former anxious self who had chosen ‘courage’…. I used to need a lot of courage just to get through a normal day.

I realized that I couldn’t even remember the last time I had any signs of anxiety. It had been several months since I needed courage just to leave the house!

And that’s great! Overcoming anxiety is HUGE!!

Now that my new norm was to be living freely without anxiety, I was able to see that life had so much more to offer than just leaving the house without getting a panic attack…

So, if I no longer was afraid of doing “normal”, everyday things – what did I need courage for?

Take Your Pick!

I needed courage to believe in myself and the choices I made.
Heck, I needed courage to make any important decisions of my own…

Once I had, I needed courage to let people know.
I needed courage to stand up for myself.

Maybe you need courage to go after a new job, move to a new place, or to finally write that bestseller book you’ve been talking about!

What do YOU need courage to do? I dare you to be courageous and share in the comments below! 🙂

An Unusual Technique that Works

In order to find many examples of ‘courage’ to focus on for a week, I used a technique that was first described in ‘The Master Key System’, published by Charles Haanel in 1912. The point of his technique (often referred to as the Battleship Exercise) is to visualize something material and trace it back to its origin to find the cause – and we find that it always started with an idea, as a thought.

Since my goal was to observe as much courage as possible during that week, I would look at any item around me – it being a coffee cup, a throw pillow, or a car on the street. I used an “inverse version” of Hansel’s technique, and traced that item through all the steps necessary from idea to finished product, thinking about the courage it took the inventor or designer to see their idea through. That takes courage!

Hot Tip: This inverted ‘Battleship Exercise’ works for almost any virtue. Just imagine what it takes of virtues such as creativity, persistence, decisiveness, cooperation, being well organized, just to name a few, to go from idea to finished product!

The more I focused on courage, the more courage I found myself having. One week of focusing on courage also had ripple effects into the weeks ahead. What we focus on does grow.

I give myself permission to be courageous! ‘Cos, you see, deep down…

This week, I want to link to two courageous bloggers:

Grateful for Gratefulness!

What if you woke up tomorrow with only what you were grateful for today?

How’s that for a kick-in-the-butt reminder!?

A couple of years ago I bought a journal where I was supposed to write down three things I was grateful for every single day. The problem was that I really could not think of anything to be grateful for other than my dog and my boyfriend…. Well, things have certainly changed since then. Actually, “things” haven’t changed that much – but I have changed!

Nowadays, the daily habit of writing down three things I’m grateful for is a breeze. I can easily name thousands of things, circumstances, or people that I’m grateful for. And I mean truly grateful, not just saying it but being truly grateful.

If you read my blog post last week, you know I was about to keep a promise – which was to have the text for my children’s book done by the 22nd of December. I am GRATEFUL that I persisted and kept that promise! I finished it on Sunday the 20th, two days before my self-imposed deadline. I am making some 20+ illustrations for that book, which will take a few months. I am grateful to be an author. I absolutely LOVE my job! I used to get paid for writing articles, which was nice. But writing books that can inspire and bring joy to the readers is my passtion. I am deeply grateful that I get to do that.

More than anything, I am grateful for gratefulness. I am grateful that I AM grateful for so many things. I am grateful for my attitude of gratitude.

Here are some other fine folks who practise their gratitude:

I Hope You Dance! (W8)

Repost from 12. November 2019.

Here’s what I wrote during my first year in the Master Key Experience, Week 8:

I keep saying that “this is the best week” of the Master Key Experience.

Well, what can I do after Sunday’s webinar but repeat myself? And then… reading Lesson 8 of the Master Key System. Oh, my friggin’ goodness! This IS the best week!

“The law of attraction will certainly and unerringly bring to you the conditions, environment, and experiences in life, corresponding with your habitual, characteristic, predominant mental attitude. Not what you think once in a while (…) BUT your predominant mental attitude is what counts.” (Haanel, 8.18)

Let me repeat that:

Your predominant mental attitude is what counts.

And – you get to choose your own mental attitude, as we have found out by DOING the exercises from the previous weeks of this mental attitude-altering, life-altering course!

Therefore, my dear fellow students, please allow me to present this song as a gift for you. The lyrics are in the video:


I really hope you will.
Promise me you will!
‘Cos I know that you always keep your promises.

With Love,

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Fast Forward to 2020:

Now that I look back at my blog posts from last year, I am reminded of all the positive changes in my own mental attitude -and it happened in just a matter of weeks. Multiple years of therapy in the past had not helped me much (not permanently anyway), but this course made all the difference – and it happened FAST! No wonder I want everyone in the whole world to take this course!

I know that this course, or experience, is different for everyone. What one individual gets out of this course is different from everyone else, our goals are also very different, and whether you reach those goals depends on a few factors: The amount of mental luggage (aka cement) when joining this course is, perhaps, one – our willingness to be brutally honest with ourselves and stop blaming others is certainly another. Having said that – remember that YOU are perfect the way you are at your point in your own journey! Perfectly perfect, perhaps not complete. Be kind to yourself. Love yourself for who you are and where you are right now.

I know that I have a long journey ahead of me still before I truly am, 100 % of the time, the person I intend to become. But I also know that I CAN be that person when I continue to be persistent with a clear ideal as my goal. Without a goal, how else will I know which path to choose when I come to a fork in the road? Every single choice I make is at a fork in the road. Whether it’s a choice in what I think, feel, say, or do – it is nothing more than a choice between one path or the other. I can choose the path that leads to my ideal goal, or I can choose to take a detour down a different path…. It is always a choice.

I do not ALWAYS choose the path that leads to my ideal goal, but I am getting better at it. When my first year at the Master Key Experience ended in March 2020, I kept doing the mental exerises every single day, and I still do, because I know first hand that they WORK. One step at a time, one minor change at a time, the compounding effect will get me where I want to be – and to WHO I want to be.

Why do you think Mark & Davene, who have been teaching this course for a decade, still do the very same exercises they teach their students?

“For when an act becomes easy through constant repetition it becomes a pleasure to perform, and if it is a pleasure to perform it is man’s nature to perform it often. When I perform it often, it becomes a habit and I become its slave and since it is a good habit, this is my will.” (from Scroll I, The Greatest Salesman in the World)

The mental exercises we learn is this course can be compared to building muscles – once you have’em, you can’t stop exercising and expect the muscles to stay strong, let alone expect them to grow…

So I keep going to the gym. The mind gym, that is. It’s not “just exercises” anymore- it’s a way of life. It’s a way of being. Just like ALL habits are, good and bad alike. Choose good habits and the bad ones vanish. It’s that simple. Persistent Practise Prouduces Perfect Presentations.

Here are some other fine folks who keep going to the mind gym:

I wish you a wonder-fun day 🙂

W6 – I’m in Shape!

Here’s what I wrote for week 6 in my first year through the Master Key Experience:

Jokingly, I have always said, “I’m in shape. Round is a shape!”

But that’s not the kind of shape I’m talking about. I am surrounded by shapes of blue rectangles, red circles, green triangles, and yellow squares – all over the house, in my car, on the outside of my MKE ring binders, yup, all over the place. And I’m lovin’ it!

My darling made the shapes out of wood for me.

After the webinar on Sunday night, I stayed up till the wee morning hours to fill in my two PPNs and two main SMART goals inside the shapes. I also found some photos I wanted to include on my “Movie Poster” aka Dreamboard. It felt great finding those photos, I was living my dream and visualising it. I FELT it!!

After making my Movie Poster, I printed out a few A4 sized ones to keep in my MKE ring binders and hung up a few at strategic places around the house, one is also glued to the back of my written DMP. I printed out a couple of index card sized Movie Poster as well – one is now a bookmark in the Greatest Salesman in the World (so I see it at least 3 x daily), the other one is in my pencil case (where the blue, red, green and yellow markers are), and I’m using a photo of my Movie Poster as the background on my PC screen and mobile phone.

Another thing I loved about this week’s webinar was the part about seeing our future self as our very best friend! YESSSS! Love that! This previous procrastinator NEEDED to hear that!! I’m done expecting my future self to clean up after my present self!

I have changed so much already, compared to where I was when we started 6 weeks ago. If you read my Week 1 blog post, you know that I was not at a good place when I joined this course… but now? Holy macaroni, I’m so exited and happy! I also have an optimism about my future that I have never been even remotely close to having before.

Sure, I still fall now and then – but I get back up! Sometimes I’m worried that there was an assignment or exercise I forgot or that there was something I misunderstood, but I remind myself that it’s all good …. and that a relaxed mind is vital, no, crucial! Take a deep breath … and repeat: PEACE be the journey


Fast forward to 2020:

Every since I heard Davene talk about how she put palmtrees around her and Mark’s flat to bring their DMP to life, I have filled my house with “my DMP in 3D” – such as donkey figurines to remind me of my farm haven for donkeys and other animals, my tea cup has a donkey on it, I’ve bought clothes with donkey prints, I have photos on the wall and fridge of the four donkeys I adopted via The Donkey Sanctuary, and I’ve met several donkeys in person as well, AND – last week I got a donkey tattoo on my arm! 😀 (I already have a tattoo of the compass and shapes on the other).

Yesterday I made a book cover to bring one of my children’s book to life, printed it out and glued it onto a book so it looks real:

I had to make the cover a little taller than my design to fit on the book

Seeing my book cover on an actual book feels fantastic!! I have placed it standing up so I see it when I’m working on my books. I’m illustrating my children’s books with my own drawings, but I won’t show anyone these illustrations until the books are published – the first one before August 2021. For the sake of the “DMP in 3D” book cover, I made it by editing some free cliparts. I love playing with Photoshop like this!

In what ways have YOU brought your DMP to life? I’d love to hear in the comments below.

MKE W5 – No Opinion!

How come we humans tend to believe that our opinions are so important? Not only do we believe our opinions are important, we might even believe that we KNOW something – even if our opinion is really just a belief based on nothing other than more beliefs!

It’s Week 5 of the Master Key Experience and one of the exercises presented to our new members is to not have an opinion. On anything, unless you are an expert on the matter AND you are asked for your opinion. Otherwise, NO OPINION.


Give it a try and see how many seconds YOU can go without having an opinion… Don’t worry – practise makes perfect.

A Matter Of Perspective

I’d like to share a situation from my own 1st year through the Master Key Experience. Some friends and I were having a meal together when one of them asked us about our opinion on something that had been on the news, which I had not seen because I do not watch the news (most people get very opinionated when I say that, by the way). I said I knew nothing about it, why it happened, and what the consequences might or might not be. “Oh, but surely you must have an opinion!”, my friend said (his voice was raised by now). I stood my ground and told him that I wouldn’t have an opinion about something I knew zero about.

To my surprise, my friend got very upset with me, so I asked him why my opinion mattered so much. “Because you must take a stand!”, he exclaimed. When I asked him the importance of me taking a stand, he said it was in order for me to know how to vote next time… So I asked, “How come all those people who do watch the news and form an opinion and take a stand vote so differently? How come they don’t all vote the same as you?”

The look on my friend’s face sealed the end of that discussion.

Check out this video: Everything is a Remix, which explains how all our opinions are made.

Have a good, non-opinionated life everyone!

MKE W2 – I Have Faith!

I’m really glad that I blogged every single week when I first did the Master Key Experience. It’s been very interesting looking at my blog posts from that year, seeing where I was at in my life and how much I struggled in the beginning…. But I paddled through and it was ALL worth it!!

Here’s what I wrote during Week 2 back then, with the headline “I Have Faith!”

I am starting to get a better picture of what it’s all about…. and I have faith that the MKE process works, if I do the work. And I will. I AM!

This week I’m really focused on finding my purpose and desires and I will tweak my written DMP accordingly (Definite Major Purpose). I want to make sure my habits are supportive of those desires – my desires. Not anyone else’s – and not what I’ve previously thought that I “ought to” desire.

My two PPN’s are ‘True Health’ and ‘Recognition for Creative Expression’. The latter need has always been there, on many occasions also fulfilled, whereas True Health isn’t something I have prioritised over the years… and the result is obvious. Suffice it to say that my health NEEDS to be a priority, or I’ll never reach any of my goals…

My mental/emotional health has been in crumbles after I “hit the wall” with a bang one year ago. I am confident that the MKE will not only speed up the mental and emotional healing process, but also be much better (understatement of the year) than anything else I have ever tried in order to overcome the issues that have been a part of my life and held me back for as long as I can remember – such as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and what have you …

If my physical and mental health weren’t in such urgent need of improvement, I might have picked a different PPN. (Edit 2020: After reaching my most important health goals within a matter of months I thanked my PPN of ‘True Health’ for helping me get there and then picked a different PPN in its place – namely Autonomy. True Health is happening for me anyway, and I really wanted to embrace my need for Autonomy, and learn to clearly communicate my personal boundaries).

During MKE Week 1, I felt overwhelmed and I had doubts. As I write this, Week 2 has just begun but I feel so much better already! Sure, there is a lot of work and it takes me hours every day. I guess I read and write slowly. But that’s OK – for now I have faith that the MKE can indeed teach me to turn my life around, and I am willing to do the work. It’s the best time-investment I can do!

Here’s a photo of a card I made a few years ago (the text is a rubber stamp). I will keep this quote as a reminder this week: “Always believe that something wonderful is about to happen”. ‘Cos it is! 🙂

I have lots of faith,
and I promise to use it wisely.

I always keep my promises.
Bibi L.


Fast forward to October 2020:
I am forever grateful for the work that my past self put into her journey with the Master Key Experience. I thank my past self for my current health, my well being, my present life! I’m so proud of what my past self managed to do, and how far she came in a matter of months because she did ALL of the exercises and practised her new habits, every day! My past self was pretty awesome if you ask me, and I should know 😉

W1 B – Looking back on my own first week

I can still remember what it was like to be a first-time student at the Master Key Experience. When reading the blog post I had written during my very first week, it’s also a reminder of how much I have learned and grown since then.

Personal growth is a life-long process. I still have some “stuff” to work on (don’t we all?), but because of the MKE I have found the tools that really do work when I am willing to use them and take charge of my life. No more excuses, no more blaming and pointing fingers at others. My life is MY responsibility. Period! This fact is no longer scary to me, as it was back then. On the contrary – it’s empowering!

This is what I wrote
when I was a new student:

Master Key Experience, Week 1

This record of my journey will and must be honest. I am done pretending to be what I am not, done pretending to be happy and/or excited when I’m not. If I am to chip off all those layers of cement that hides the gold underneath, I must be honest and not pretend that I have chipped off more than I actually have …

So far? About 2 grams worth of cement. Hey, it’s a start!

I am certain that it is indeed possible to get it all off. Gram by gram, till tons of cement have been turned into dust. [Edit: What is the cement I’m referring to? Check out the video in this post]

I am optimistic. I have done my homework every day, and I have particularly enjoyed reading Scroll 1 in The Greatest Salesman in the World. As for Haanel’s Master Key System, Part One … there are things I don’t understand how can be, things I do not believe (yet?), but I do read it every day and I am open-minded (I think!). It will all make sense later. Right?

It all feels a bit overwhelming right now; repeatedly reading in a foreign language (I am Norwegian, btw). I have an OK grasp of the English language, but – and I believe this is an important but – working with my own mind in a language that is not my own feels … superficial, I s’pose. Language is such an important part of our identity, and when I communicate in English I really don’t FEEL the words. Having said that, I guess I just have to trust that the words will find a path on their own into my heart, into my core and – yay – into my subconsciousness!

I sent in the 1st draft of my DMP the other day and got a revision back, one which I found most interesting and I trust my guide’s inputs on how to improve my DMP.

I AM grateful to be on this journey. I truly am! I just struggle with a few things, that’s all …

That’s it for now. Thank you for your time.

Keep up the good work, all you golden nuggets out there! ♥

Optimistically yours,


Fast forward to today: Now that I’m a guide at the Master Key Experience, it means that the first week is very different for me than when I was a student – but this is what they have in common: It’s exciting! Receiving the first draft of the new members’ DMP (Definite Major Purpose) and thereby getting a glimpse into their dreams and goals has been wonderful. I take their DMPs very seriously and do my very best to guide them along in the process. Writing a really good DMP might take weeks, even months. During my first year, I refined my own more times than I can even remember – and in the process, I found more gold inside myself, under all that cement! This process cannot be rushed. Give it time …. Give yourself time.

The first week for guides is also busy with a lot of work, and it can feel overwhelming at times. The main difference is what I DO when I’m feeling overwhelmed. The old me would try to escape by watching TV for a few hours. The present me takes a long “SIT” – my place in silence where I relax on a deeper level than ever before. A relaxed mind is crucial and I must take care of my own needs before I can be of any help to others. A relaxed, calm state of mind is the only doorway to progress mentally.

My #1 advice to new students: Relax and trust the process …

I promise to follow my own advice.

Many of our new members have posted their very first blog posts this week!

My Secret to Success

My secret to personal success is really no secret at all.  Ask anyone who has achieved their goals, and they’ll tell you the same thing. Best of all? – Anyone can do it. It’s really this simple:

lion green eyes

If you can’t be bothered reading this rather lengthy and personal post, just click to see the online course that changed everything for me!

I said it’s simple, but perhaps not easy. – Many people do not even know what they want! I know what that’s like. In the past, I knew what I didn’t want, but I had no clear goals – I just wanted to avoid pain. I thought a lot about all the things I didn’t want, such as “I don’t want to be sick, I don’t want to be unhappy, anxious, feel worthless….”, and so on.

And it worked! I did get more of what I focused on! So I got sicker, more depressed, more worried, and my confidence had hit rock bottom.

In September 2019, I joined an online-course of six months and since then my focus has been laser-sharp on the outcome I want. Because I have focused on the positive outcome, I can check quite a few boxes already!

Before I show you my list of personal achievements so far, I want to give you an idea of where I was at when I joined this life-altering course in September. The reason I want to tell you is that my story goes to show that what I have learned really works. You see, before I joined the course I had so much anxiety that I didn’t even dare to be alone. I had been on heavy meds for years (for bipolar disorder since 1994 and painkillers since 2005 due to a spinal deformity). I had very little energy and had to sleep for at least two hours during the day, every single day since 2010. I also struggled with memory loss and eventually ended up on disability pension. For the past 4 years, I couldn’t walk more than 10-15 meters without crutches. Sometimes I used a wheelchair to get around. I was in debt, had no confidence that I’d ever work again, I was seriously worried about my future. But let’s not dwell on the past! I have a brand new life, and it keeps getting better!

In no particular order, EXCEPT the first one – which was vital to achieving the rest, here’s what I have achieved since September 2019. And this is only the beginning ……

  • I’m happy – every day!
  • I’ve found my life purpose.
  • I know how to reach my goals.
  • I’ve lost weight.
  • Quit smoking.
  • Painfree spine.
  • Quit taking meds and painkillers *
  • I can walk 100 times further!!
  • And I dance every day 🙂 
  • I feel confident.
  • Made friends, found my tribe.
  • Spiritual awakening.

* I want to stress that I did wean off the anti bipolar meds with support of my physician and that I did not quit overnight. The side effects to quitting cold turkey can be quite severe. I ticked all the boxes with symptoms before, but I no longer have those ups (mania) and downs (depressions). I feel perfectly “normal” (for lack of a better word) and that’s all that matters to me 🙂

Would none of the achievements above have happened anyway without me taking the online course? Well, without it I seriously doubt that I would have gotten anywhere – I’d most likely continue attracting all the things I did not want, as before.

More than anything, I know that I have found the real key to personal success. I have found my true purpose (to write inspirational books to help others) and I keep doing the work that I know brings out the results I want, all in due time. I know I tend to be impatient; I want results “yesterday” … but I also know that a relaxed mind and a positive mental attitude, backed up by a burning desire will get me there. I’ve come so far already, and I am persistent! (Which in itself is pretty huge for a former procrastinator and worrywart …..)
