Have you ever gone on a positive mental diet? This is my bazillionth try at this. When I say this is my bazillionth try I am really saying that I just keep starting over that many times during the week. I just have difficulty keeping a positive mental attitude in the forefront of my mind daily to the level that Fox describes……no demands! I just keep plugging away at this. I am happy to say I have made significant progress this week. I actually have gone almost 3 days without starting over. Yabba dabba doo!!!! That is genuine progress and I am extraordinarily proud of this progress. It has taken a huge effort on my part to get this far.
How did I get to this point? The primary reasons for the success this week is really simple. I read The Mental Diet by Fox each night before I retire and again each morning when I rise. That helps to keep the process of a positive mental attitude thought process in the forefront of my mind during the day. In addition I repeat to myself “positive mental attitude” about 100 times each day. That also helps…………dramatically! It is the same thing as the “do it now” and “I can be what I will to be” incantation we are repeating. I have failed, I mean faltered, at this exercise diet countless times. I am not to be denied. Success will be mine!! I have made genuine progress with my efforts.
The primary reason for the effort besides just wanting to complete the task is Fox’s description of the result of the effort. “The most important of all factors in your life is the mental diet on which you live. It is the food which you furnish to your mind that determines the whole character of your life………… If you change your mind, your conditions must change too. We are transformed by the renewing of our minds”
Granted there have been techniques used to stay on track. The real power behind the success is the change in the blueprint. I can truly feel it taking hold. The techniques were established during the daily sit but the effort is just the absolute desire to change my thought processes to achieve my DMP and remove the other negative variances in my life currently.
This past year has been extraordinarily difficult on me and my entire family. The Seven Day Mental Diet appeared in my life at a most opportune time and I am unbelievably grateful. Is it the Law of Attraction? I think yes. but is also the culmination effort, desire and necessity that also had a hand in the success. However it happened or who is to receive the thanks makes no difference to me ………..my heart is filled with gratitude for the success and the diet. It is a diet filled with hope!
