Quote of the Day
“All that a man does outwardly is but the expression and completion of his inward thought. To work effectively, he must think clearly; to act nobly, he must think nobly.” – William Ellery Channing

Things to Learn from Positive Charges, Alexander Lockhart
Along with creating your own personal affirmations, here are some positive statements you can use that will help you eliminate negative thought patterns and will produce changes in your attitude and outlook on life. Over the next 21 days repeat these statements to yourself once in the morning and once at night before retiring. You can write them out on index cards and review them several times throughout the day:
1. I believe something wonderful is going to happen to me today.

2. I am a lovable, worthwhile person capable of caring for others.
3. I am a special person. 
4. Because of my positive attitude, people are attracted to me.
5. I am a positive, exciting person to know. I am great fun to be around. 
6. I write out my goals each day. I know exactly what I want.
