You Learn The Darndest Things Sometimes.

I went to a seminar by Kalei Inn, Ph. D.

One of the things I will never forget is when she said, she was always stubbing her toes.

You know how that is, right? You walk into a dresser and bang goes your toes, then you are doubled over in pain.

She said that what she did was say to herself "I'm not going to stub my toes anymore!" Then, from that moment on it just stopped.

I decided to try it, I had the same problem. I was walking into things and always losing my keys.

I said "I'm not going to stub my toes or lose my keys anymore!" You know, from that moment on, I stopped bumping into things and I stopped losing my keys. It worked!

It's been two years, and I can't remember stubbing my toes since that time, but I do remember misplacing my keys once.

Not bad considering I used to do both of those things almost on a daily basis.

It is amazing the things we can learn, if we can stop being so skeptical and think outside the box once and awhile.

Thanks Kalei!
