Staying Positive


  1. Look for something positive in each day, even if some days you have to look a little harder.
  2. Don’t chase people. Be an example. Attract them. Work hard and be yourself.The people who belong in your life will come and find you and stay.
  3. Make a list of the things that make you happy. Make a list of the things you do every day. Compare the lists. Adjust accordingly.
  4. A healthy relationship doesn’t drag you down. It inspires you to be better.
  5. Integrity is choosing your thoughts and actions based on values rather than personal gain.

17 Seconds

Abraham says the average person rarely finishes a single sentence without contradicting their energy, as in “I want a new car, but it is too expensive.” So they say most of us haven’t had much experience with ever feeling the combustion of thought that comes from 17+ seconds of pure thought.

In talking about the leverage of 17+17+17+17=68 seconds of pure thought, Abraham offers the following information:

17 seconds is worth 2,000 man-hours (about a year at 40 hours per week of action taken) 34 seconds is worth 20,000 man-hours (or about 10 years…) 51 seconds is worth 200,000 man-hours (or about 100 years…) 68 seconds is worth 2,000,000 man-hours (or about 1000 years…)

That’s two MILLION man-hours (or woman hours!) If we can learn to offer pure thought energy for 68 seconds at a time, action becomes INCONSEQUENTIAL!
