Why Affirmations Work

Why Affirmations Work

And I’ve listened to those who claimed they could do anything from getting your motivation back to literally curing whatever ailed you (including cancer if you can believe that!) I’ve also had clients (and friends and colleagues) who hated them. They called them bunk, nonsense, woo-woo, new age junk…you name it.

I Lied And Said I Was Busy

Have you ever lied about being ‘busy’? The vague ‘oh I have an appointment then” when you really don’t? That sort of thing? I most certainly have.  In the past I think I lied about this quite often.
