In my first year this diet made the difference for me. The course took on a whole new meaning once I had this part of the experience under my control. I am looking forward to finding even more out about myself by doing it again.
The diet is quite simple. I am simply going to entertain nothing but positive thoughts for 7 days. If I think of a negative for more than a few seconds then the clock starts again and I embark on a new 7 days.
The Law Of Substitution
This law is going to be by saviour again this year. It is true that if a negative thought starts to form then, if I act quick enough, I can think of a positive instead. Maybe my DMP, a nice experience or anything really that takes my thoughts away from the negative. If I act quick enough then this will solve many potential restarts. I am also finding that smiling overcomes a negative emotion, try it yourself put on a big smile and try to feel sad at the same time.
Why Do This
The growth from this is compounded as we are exercising so many skills.
- We are becoming better observers or ourselves, this has so many benefits in all areas of life. Everyone on this planet would benefit from observing themselves and their actions then taking full responsibility, not finding ways to blame but taking full responsibility.
- We are avoiding situations that lead us to restarting the diet. We all have that person or place that is like a black hole for positivity, do I need to spend time there? If I do then I will go in with a smile, substitutions ready and get out as quick as I can.
- We are creating for ourselves a positive fertile mind. This will enable us to grow and become self directed thinkers in a positive direction. Realising our goals and enjoying the journey. Repeating positive quotes and reading positive books are good but creating a positive mind will have more impact on us. We live in our head 24 hours a day so a few minutes of positivity followed by hours of average will not produce anything other than average results.
Well I started last night with no problems. This morning I had to restart after the alarm clock went off. I also had to restart getting my son off to school as we were running late. Loading up the PC has made a restart too as it was doing what PC’s do and testing me. I thought after doing this previous years it would be easy. It is going to be a test again but I’m ready and the rest of today will be fine. I have substitutions ready and I find it easy to smile.
I am the observer of my life, I control my actions and the realisation of my DMP is more important than being a comfortable average. I do the work, achieve my dreams and positively change many peoples lives in the process.
