Do you remember Stuart Smalley? "...Because I'm good enough, I'm smart enough, and... dog'gonit ,people like me!" Stuart Smalley became a Saturday Night Live hit at a time when Americans were nearly as fond of daily affirmation as we were last year to the Atkins or South Beach Diets. Stuart was funny because he was mocking us! At the time, everyone had a book of daily affirmations and a calendar of inspirational quotes at their bedside. Affirmations were the flavor of the moment. But there are many cultures that have always believed in the power of belief itself. And, when you think about it, isn't that essentially what prayer is? ...A spiritual wish that you state aloud? You have no promise your prayer will be manifested. Yet, there is the hope that it could become real. Consider that goals can only become successful realities when they are believed to the same extent as prayer. What if the daily affirmation could play a role in helping you get from Point A to Point B? Affirm your goals each day or each week by... - Reading your goals aloud or writing them down every day - Placing visual reminders in places you frequent the most - Emailing or leaving yourself voice mail messages to keep your goal in sight
