Some Affirmations For The John.
Harvey Cohen, PH.D.

The more I affirm ideas that validate my indisputable greater potential, the more I am automatically inclined to realize more of my greater potential for transcending self-imposed limitations and barriers, because what I think about with frequency, I bring about with consistency!

*

I'm making it all up anyway, so it might as well be wonderful!

*

I'll go bannanas, I'll go insane trying to please all I know, bending over backwards is a vain pain, compromise one hot inferno. Whatever I do or whatever I say, or ow hard that I might try, I really can't please everyone, and here's the reason why:

Those unhappy with themselves only see life's creases, no matter how you try to please, they'll pick ya all to pieces.

*

I can't please those not pleased with themselves,
It's so futile for me to try,

They'll find fault with what I do or don't,

That's what they live for and die.

I can't please people displeased with themselves,

Be they near or be they afar,

They'll bitch and complain

About me just the same,

They can't help it, that's just how they are.

And people who feel real good about life, spreading love and encouragement too,

Will love and accept me and never reject me,

No matter, whatever I do.

Yes, trying to please others is their job not mine,

Of this I can plainly see.

That means I am free to learn to please me

For my bummers, that's the best remedy.

*

Right now I will remember I have choices all the time.
Right now I will remember there's no mountain I can't climb.

*

Life is like a bagel…..THE LONGER IT TAKES TO ENJOY IT, THE HARDER IT GETS!!!!

*

Optimistic Attitudes,
Not petty pitter pattertudes

Or

bumper sticker platitudes

but positive

real glad-atudes,

in

all

my

chit and chatter-tudes,

about

them or this

or

that-atudes

are all

that really

matter-tudes

in the scheme of things. 

*

Today I will practice GIVING
Random acts of Loving kindness
And deeds of warm-hearted Kinship
SIDE EFFECTS: I GET WHAT I GIVE!

*

Life is just a mirror,
Reflecting what I see,

Not what's going on out there,

but what's going on with me

When I am in a situation

That I'm sure is such a bore,

Someone else who's in that spot

Might see opportunities galore.

YES,

LIFE IS JUST A MIRROR!

That may be hard to grasp

This news can be real freeing or a Real pain in the asp!

*

Just because I slip a bit,
I won't be quick to roar.
I'll take it easy on myself,
That's what God made patience for.
