Only good lies before you…
For many years one of my affirmations has been: Only good lies before me. It is a comforting thought that wipes out all fear of the future and allows me to wake up each day with confidence, feeling at ease. I am often delighted and even amazed to observe how Life brings my next good adventure to me. That is how I felt when I heard that Reid Tracy, the CEO of Hay House, was cooking up a scheme to have Cheryl Richardson and me produce a book together. A huge smile lit up my face as the idea penetrated my consciousness with possibilities.
At first, I had many questions: What would we write about? How would we blend our two styles? Since we live so far apart, would Life give us enough together time? But soon I realized that Life could not have come up with such a good idea without covering all the bases. And cover the bases it did. Cheryl and I found ourselves in various cities, both here and abroad, with the perfect amount of time to lay out the next chapter or two. And when we weren’t together, we would Skype—often in our pajamas, with our hair and makeup au naturel—and it was as if we were in the same room.
Cheryl and I have both made phenomenally positive changes in our lives, and we want to share what we’ve learned with you. All of us can improve the quality of our lives if we practice the art of self-care and train our minds to think thoughts that make us feel good. When we do, we attract delightful experiences that enrich our lives.
The idea Cheryl and I had was to present these methods in the easiest possible way so that you could, step-by-step, learn how to have peace of mind—to live worry free in a healthy body, with a comfortable income, while enjoying your relationships. Ultimately, we wanted to show you how to move from feeling like a victim to being the creator of an enjoyable life.
