According to Newton’s law of motion, every action has an equal and opposite reaction.  This is a universally acknowledged fact which be applied beyond physics to most any situation.  Newton’s law plays a predominant role in our lives through what is known as ‘Cause and Effect’.  Our choices often lead us to take the actions that set the wheels of our lives in motion. Our actions are the causes that return to us with results.  Every choice we make and action we take has a consequence. It is important to understand which actions lead to the best results and which actions are affecting our lives in ways we would like to change.

The more knowledge we gain about our personal causes and their related effects, the easier it becomes for us to make good decisions.  A great way to prime ourselves for good decision-making is to mentally prepare for our expected accomplishments.  Athletes do this by visualizing the result they desire before they take action.  Some painters do this before putting their brush to a canvas.  One way you can mentally prepare to achieve great results is by reciting a short but empowering affirmation each morning.  This can set the tone for your entire day, and motivate you on a subconscious level.  By reciting your personal affirmation out loud each morning you take the first step toward committing to your goals.  Give it a try – it only takes a few minutes!

The Lifebook Affirmation

One of the most empowering and positive ways to begin your day is with a short meditational affirmation.  Simply take a moment each morning to quiet your mind and focus on what you really want out of your day in all 12 categories; what you want to accomplish, how you want to behave, how you want to treat others, who you want to be as a human being. Remember – what you put out is what you get in return, and you must become the CAUSE in order to achieve the EFFECTS you want in your life.
