Everything about this technique and philosophy appeals to me. I haven't had a chance to read the book, but I've spent a day reading this thread and Tom's newsletters. The benevolence, love and compassion that Tom describes is the world I want to live in.
But, alas, it hasn't worked for me yet. I wrote an MBO on a pad of paper and placed it next to my window. Despite living alone, I just can't bring myself to speak aloud
. Are written MBOs less effective than spoken?
Can anyone suggest a good way to experience MBOs for the first time?
Write down your MBOs and then just whisper them. That's how I started. I felt very embarrassed saying them out loud because I share a flat with my sister.
Now I've grown more confident saying my MBOs in a low voice.
The MBOs work for nonetheless!
