Kindle Daily Deal, 99 cents


Today only, THE MARRIAGE PACT is the Kindle Daily Deal, available for just 99 cents.  :)

Went to Weight Watchers today, and was UP about half a pound.  Oh, well.

The complaint-free world bracelets were a hit–I gave away ten.  The leader got the first one, put it right on, and had to move it a minute later.  I had to move mine, too, so no bragging on this front.  After all this time, I’m back on Day 1.

Starting now, I’ll be giving each of the autographed book winners a purple bracelet, so be sure to comment.

Some of you are using other kinds of bracelets, and that’s fine.  That’s what I did, too, until my order arrived.  The item isn’t very expensive, they cost about $1 apiece.  As usual, several people wanted to know if they were supposed to snap themselves with it when they complained.  :)  That was the first thing that came to my mind, too, and I’ve seen it in the comments a couple of times.  This is not about pain!  Keep in mind, you don’t have to move the bracelet if you’re just stating facts, if you just complain in silent prayer or in your head.  It only counts against you when you say the words out loud.  You DO need to move the band if there’s an oh-poor-me note to your words.  Things like, “This is just my luck” (unless you’re talking about something GOOD) are bracelet-movers, along with other well-worn whinges, such as, “Why me?” or “I always get the short end of the stick.”

You see, your statements are 90 percent of the REASON things happen to you, good, bad or indifferent.  Your subconscious mind has no sense of humor.  It does not weigh the things you say against reality.  It simply sends more of whatever you have been claiming to be true.  

Today’s Weekly, a Weight Watchers publication, has a great quote about why we need to keep on trying, no matter how many times we mess up, and of course this applies to food, exercise or anything else.  We all fail sometimes when we’re trying to accomplish some goal.  It’s easy to say, What’s the use? (bracelet-mover alert) and throw in the towel.  But ask yourself: “If I broke an egg, would I smash the other eleven?  If I tripped on one step, would I hurl myself down the flight of stairs?” 

Think about it.

    thanks for the reminder I spaced on the bracelet, am putting it on right now. And I love your examples for not giving up, best I have heard.

    I certainly like this idea!!! I would probably be moving mine a lot though considering I have a broken foot and am getting very frustrated not being able to do what I want! :-| Ha ha!!

    my motto, accidents happen, it’s how we react that shows who we really are. I tell my kids (20/22 yrs old) brush yourself off and try again. My dad always said number 2 only shows someone who tried hard.

    Thank you for the link to the discounted Kindle book! I will enjoy it I’m sure.
    I like the idea of a physical reminder to make our words positive. What we program ourselves to think and say has so much more power than we generally think. Keeping complaint free is a worthy goal! :)

    The bracelets sound interesting and I just might try one out. Glad you are keeping up with your Weight Watchers program. I have been on it myself and found their program to be useful in so many different areas. Good luck.

    I really like the idea of the bracelet. I try not to be negative and poor me but sometimes I do it. It would be good to be more conscious of this and stop it.

    I believe this is a wonderful idea. You’re the best!
    I started working with a personal trainer because of you. You have inspired me so much to be a better person and get healthier.
    I am a below knee amputee and have had to make a lot changes in my life, and more yet to come. Due to this leg. But with people like you I know I can keep going! What a blessing you are and your books.
    Thank you for all of your blogs.

    Linda, I really like those analogies…”If I broke an egg, would I smash the other eleven? If I tripped on one step, would I hurl myself down the flight of stairs?” …You have hit the nail on the head, or the egg on the floor. I’m going to try to remember them when I get discouraged. It’ll be a change from…Well, it could be worse. It can always be worse, although when everything is going wrong, it is hard to know how it could get worse.

    Thank you!

      PS…Is that considered a complaint, or a statement of fact?

    I think I need a bracelet! Sometimes I let my health issues get me down. And I know there are soooo many people worse off than me!!!!!

    I understand that concept. I stay on the positive side of my disease but this year I sat and cried in my doctors office. I felt like this time I was losing ground. You don’t beat what I have, you just keep it at bay. So they did some test. My disease was not progressing but the pneumonia was so bad it took me 2 months to recover from. Pity party is over. Not sure those 2 months the purple band would have worked for me. Still would love to have one.

    Stay positive on your weight battle.

    For sure I need the bracelet. It seem like I am alway complaining about my back hurting or hip. It seems like it is something every day. I have been trying to get out and walk more when its not raining that is. I keep telling myself that the exercise will help it. When its raining I try to ride the exercise bike some. I did get a walk in today it was a beautiful day for it.

    I love the bracelet-mover alert and I had to move mine several times a day for awhile. Don’t worry about that little half pound Linda, no big deal. Looking forward for March 29th. will have me a good read. Oh, and thanks far the dollar coupon!!

    This is such a great idea. My birthday is tomorrow(St. Pat’s
    Day, which everyone remembers, especially as I get older), so
    I think I’ll use the “Lose 10” bracelet I got from the DR OZ show and see if I can start a new trend. It’s a trend that will
    only help, not hurt. Are the puppies all dirty again after the
    bath you gave them? My horses are a mess, but it’s a little cold
    to try and bathe them. Just combing out loads of winter hair.
    Take care.

    At my Weight Watchers meeting I heard a quote by Edison about failing 1000 times. I’m down and hope I can keep loosing this time. Judy

    You’re so right about our negative and positive thoughts and how they affect us and what comes to us. I’m not giving up, I’ll do my best to only think positive things that I want to come my way.

    I wasn’t sure if you mentioned in your blog that all of your Corbin books are now available on Audible.com. I was so thrilled that I bought extra credits so that I could get all 4 at once. I bought the original books when they were originally published.

    So here’s the deal, if the whole time I am reading about these bracelets I am thinking about other people I need to give them to and the reasons why then I guess I should automatically be removing my bracelet?! Sort of like at Church when I hear a message and rather than take it to heart I think of someone else who would really benefit from this. I really ought to be able to wear a smaller size shoe since I feel like my toes have been stepped on enough to pull back 2 sizes!!!
    Thank you again for such a great tool to make me work at improving my bad behavior keep up the good work.

    I think the bracelet thing is a good idea. I was raised in a negative household and because of that I have tried to be positive. It is so hard when all you’ve heard are negative thoughts. How do you get one of these bracelets?
