Tens things to be excited about today.


We’re going to be touching base on something extremely basic today, and I’m only covering it because, no matter how much I cover the topic, folks still run around aimlessly, slamming into each other and wondering why their crappy day keeps getting worse. It’s old news, but I’m back to give you a small refill, free of charge.

Snowball effect. You’ve heard of it, yes? Let’s take a stroll down Wikipedia lane, shall we? “Snowball effect is a figurative term for a process that starts from an initial state of small significance and builds upon itself, becoming larger (graver, more serious), and perhaps potentially dangerous or disastrous (a vicious circle, a “spiral of decline”), though it might be beneficial instead (a virtuous circle). This is a very common cliché in cartoons and modern theatrics.”

You may have witnessed me saying, “The better it gets, the better it gets,” a phrase coined by Abraham Hicks. The same may be said for the opposite – “the worse it gets, the worse it gets.” It simply depends on your mindset.

When you wake up and something bad happens, you may dwell on that bad thing, talk about that bad thing, put your energy into that bad thing, and then wonder why more bad things keep happening. Then, you have more bad things to complain about and focus upon and talk about. The negative mindset is to blame, I say. “The better it gets, the better it gets. The worse it gets, the worse it gets.” Whatever you have your attention turned to, you’re likely to manifest more of. Jerry and Esther also claim it takes a mere 17 seconds of thought to manifest desires. Whether you agree with this statement or not, we may all agree that it feels better to think about things that please us rather than things that upset us (unless you’re a masochist?).

Alas – the snowball effect. I’ve put together this mini worksheet that transforms into a mini zine/workbook to aid you in getting pumped for the day – setting a positive tone. You can download it for just a buck, print it out and get to work.

The snowball effect is going to happen, one way or another. It’s up to you, however, to decide on packing together a crisp, freshly packed white ball of goodness, or the grey sludge that’s built up on the side of the road. The choice is yours.
