Debbie Ford

One of my favorite motivational/self help authors is Debbie Ford. When I first discovered her, I think it was an audio book that I'd picked up. She was talking about a turning point in her life and the exact spot where that switch was flipped - you know - the big Ah-Ha moment. She said the location and when I looked up the sign in front of me was that exact place. I was in Miami at the time, I do believe, so it was no where near where I lived. It made me sit up and listen, that's for sure. It was just too much of a coincidence. If you'd like to read more about her you can visit Debbie Ford's Website at

I learned a lot from her books. It was hard though. I am a tough nut to crack at times :)

I've friended her on Facebook and she gives some really great status updates. The two below are my favorites so far. I'm truly intrigued with the Monday Morning ritual. I'm sure it could be started any day of the week, but I'm going to try to do it this Monday.

Before you go to sleep tonight put one of your most loving thoughts in your mind ~ pray that the feelings attached to this thought fill every cell of your being ~ and then sleep with the angels.

My Monday morning ritual: I write down everything there is to do this week and everything I want to do ~ add in a few unexpected miracles to my list ~ hand it over to the powers that be with another wish and a prayer ~ imagine that it's Friday afternoon and I'm smiling and thanking God because I have exceeded my wildest expectations for the week ~ and Viola my wishes are granted.

What do you think? Totally wacko or an interesting concept? or anything inbetween :)

Have a fabulous day!

I really like those two activities! I really like books like that, I need to look her up and buy one of her books. Do you recommend anything particular? That's really cool that you were at Miami during that exact time you were reading about her! Definitely a sign! :)

I think she's right. Writing things down has a powerful effect on making things happen. Look at the 101 things to do!!!
