I promised that I would post Zig Ziglar's daily affirmations that I received at a conference a few years ago. They are excellent. I printed these and then taped them to my bathroom mirror so that I see them every day. Have a great day!
A Life-Changing Procedure!
by Zig Ziglar
The eyes are the windows of the soul. So, to the person you are capable of becoming, each evening, just before you go to bed, stand in front of the mirror alone and in the first-person, present tense, look yourself in the eye and repeat with passion and enthusiasm the first four paragraphs. Repeat this process every morning and every evening from this day forward. Within one week you will notice remarkable changes in our life. After 30 days, choose the one paragraph that you feel needs the most work and repeat that every day.
