Day 17: Journal Entries
Be sure to stay on top of your journal entries. If you have joined "100 Days to Change" and somehow missed the part about purchasing a composition book to serve as your journal then don't freak out. It's not too late. Just go to any drug store or Walmart, look in the school supplies area and locate one of those basic Composition Books that have the black and white pattern on front and back and is bound with the solid black binding.
On the very first page, create a header called "Daily Affirmation".
This is where you will be writing your "I am" statements. Why? Because "I am" are the two most powerful words that one can say about themselves.
As an example, here are mine:
I am going to spend time with my family.
I am going to overcome my financial situation.
I am going to provide for my family.
I am working hard to accomplish my goals.
I am going to change.
Next, write the header "Daily Empowerment". You can use a quote, prayer or whatever inspires you. Write it down or write them down. The important issue here is that you get inspired by someone other than you. You are reaching out to wisdom or spirituality.
Then write "Attitude". You must stay positive at all times. If you don't think you can be positive then at least try. Be confident.
Next wirte "Persevere!". You must persevere. You are in it to win it. Keep going.
Finally write "Smile". Remember to always smile. Try to start your smile on the inside and then let your face show it. Stand out. Smile!
On all the pages to follow, you can label each like so:
Day 1 "100 Days to Change" Jan 1, 2009
Day 2 "99 Days to Change" Jan 2, 2009
Carry your journals everywhere you go. Write in them often. Throughout the day write down things that come to mind. If there is something that makes you feel good then write it down. Ex) Mr. Smith wrote me a letter today letting me know how much his family appreciated everything that I did for them. Or write down new ideas of ways you can improve your business. Just be sure to write every day. Stay on top of it.
