You are Powerful Beyond Your Imagining

October 11, 2011

Here is an easy, surefire way to dramatically improve your odds of attaining and retaining a joyous attitude, paradise health and youthful vitality. I wrote about the power of affirmations in an earlier post. To recap: Affirmations in themselves are powerful, but when you add visualization, and even more importantly, the feeling that your desire has already been fulfilled, the results are multiplied a hundredfold.
