I suppose a person could get up 2 hours early and do all the writing, but, wow. This is going to sound funny but I think it wouldn't take long before the goal would take on negative emotion because the person would dread having to do all that writing. lol
Do you have any idea if typing is allowed instead of writing?
I do really like his idea of shifting the memory of a previous successful experience into a current goal, for the positive emotion and confidence and probably behavior as well.
This is exactly what I thought when I first purchased it, and remember moonrambler, you're talking about the basic method.
Opinions based on my understanding of the book?
If you were to feel hesitant about writing it out 100 times a day, then according to the book, that would be a blockage.
You shouldn't have a problem writing it out 100 times, because the story you composed should make you feel happy and motivated. In other words, it should be fun to write a story that makes you feel good 100 times....
Here's an example I pulled from his site from a testimonial.....
'I ASKED FOR $8,000 AND GOT $12,530!' |
"It's so amazing! I didn't think your theory will work for us. However, I want to test for myself. So I pick up a high goal for $8,000 by the end of January 2003. I practice to write my goal over 100 times everyday. At the beginning, I feel puzzled about that, but I use tools to clear my block.
"But I was wrong! I didn't call anybody for my service. Sales rush in silently. I couldn't stop! I have get nearly $12,530 at the end of January 2003. It's so amazing. Thank you for your work and wisdom!
"All the best, "

But after reading your post again, moonrambler, I think I know what you're getting at. Should you describe every little detail of the story?
This advice is based on my past experience on showing someone I knew how to do it, and she had simillar questions so here's what I got from the book:
If you feel it's too long and that's causing a negative feeling, then you can alter the story and make it shorter, if it makes that feeling disappear. Leave out something if it feels like it's weighing the story down and it makes you feel annoyed or something.
The real key is the positive feeling the story produces in you, and it should be high. Each time you read the story, it should make you feel happy, cheerful, motivated.
If it does, according to the book, then after repeating it over and over again, it will cause your brain to attract the outcome or lead you to it...at least, that is what the testimonials seem to suggest...
The ebook doesn't mention anything about typing your goal out; this would be a new territory to experment in to see if it actually works. If it produces the same positve happy feeling, then it's possible or something you can experiment with.
But I think Stuart mostly likely focuses on writing it out, because it's easier to sense negative feedback as you practice writing the goal out. The other possibility is to read it 100 times as well, assuming you get the positive feeling while you do it, just a thought.....
