Who Will Cry When You Die - Chapter 11 and 12

Chapter 11 - Talk to Yourself

Talk to yourself and manifest what you want for that day. Say things like: “I am delighted that I am full of confidence and boundless courage,” or “I am so grateful that money and opportunity are flowing into my life” at least 200 times a day.

This practice works for positive and negative things. When I noticed my self-talk, I realized it was easier for me to say negative things about myself to myself. After one silly mistake I would say, “I’m so stupid. Why did I do that?” at least 20 times in a minute. Once I recognized this behaviour, I changed the phrase to “Well, that was a silly thing to do. I’ll correct it next time.” By removing my character from the action, it allowed me to remain positive and keep my positive self-perception intact.

Chapter 12 - Schedule Worry Breaks

Schedule a specific time to worry, then wallow in your problem for approximately 30 minutes. Train yourself to do something more productive after the wallow. Record unaddressed concerns for the next worry period.

I love this practice. It allows me to think things through and get my thoughts together. It has also saved me a lot of time because if I have a class to teach or a cake order to fulfill; I don’t have time for negative energy. So I get it all out, tears and all, and then cut it. The best part of this practice is that I became more efficient in handling difficult or stressful situations since I had a time crunch.
