    I eliminate views that are negative and unkind.
    I honor my body as the temple of my soul;
    I choose foods that are nourishing and whole...

  • The Power Living® Pledge: An Affirmation for a Purposeful & Powerful Life was an inspired thought captured all at once. Here's how it came about and some sample insights: 

    An Inspired Thought...
    I wrote The Power Living® Pledge on July 14, 2003 on the subway in New York City. Sitting there, feeling the deflated energy of the other passengers made me realize something: Even if you had come so far as to understand your Purpose, or Life Vision, your thoughts and basic habits might still get in the way of you achieving it. Suddenly it came to me to encapsulate all of the principles of Power Living into one affirmation that could be repeated every day as a reminder of how to live. Through what I'm sure was divine inspiration, The Power Living® Pledge came to me all at once. Since I always have pen and paper with me, I wrote it down immediately. I started sharing The Pledge with my clients and seminar participants. After each session, people would ask where they could get a copy of The Pledge so they could refer to it every day. Finally, one woman was so adamant about its power as a simple daily reminder of how to live, she had me promise to publish it. So here you have it. This is my gift to you today. An inspiration I honored by writing down and sharing - an affirmation for life. 

    Take The Pledge...
    A pledge is a solemn binding promise to do, give, or refrain from doing something. What binding promises have you made to your Self? What are your "absolutes" - the things you must do to live your most purposeful and powerful life? We often take life for granted until a crisis wakes us up - an illness, a death, a divorce, or a loss of job. Don't wait for a crisis to make a change. Take action now. Put aside any fruitless patterns that drive your daily life, and create new patterns that will propel you to experience your greatness. 

    Learn this powerful affirmation and reminder of how to be. Now is the time to tune your mind and activate your power!
