personal development programs, the first thing that comes to mind is
asking if anyone has had success. This article gives you a
at my experience with an eight-week positive thinking course.

decided to share it with you to give you a peak at the program.

spotlight has been on finding your purpose and passion in
life. And, while I've done a lot of soul searching prior to
doing this program, I found a deeper meaning to my life than I had
known last week.
The neatest thing that happened
during this week was that after I finished day four (half way through
the week) I checked my email.
Since my email is on
yahoo, when I signed off, the yahoo news page came up and there
were some stories about people following their passions in
their second half of life.
Interesting, huh? Here
I'd been “focusing on my passion" for the past few days, and
“out-of-the-blue pops up “people following their
passions during their second half of life.”

After all, you're thinking about your second half of life and your
a nice start to this positive thinking course, isn't it? I'm
thinking more positive already.
my notes about my experience with the course, the program prompts you
to keep a "journal" as you go through the program.
Here's an excerpt from week one's journal:
finished my first week
of the program today, I am surprised. Surprised
because as much as I am into personal development and listening to my
own heart, today's exercise prompted me to go a little
deeper. At first I wasn't sure how to answer the question
they posed, but as I allowed my mind let go and focus on that question,
thoughts suddenly came rushing in. It was fun to let my
mind to just "play." The next thing I know, I'm having a
revelation and a sigh of release, and I'm thinking, "This is
fun!" It's like taking your mind out for an afternoon at the
That negative voice that in the
beginning said, "Oh, you
can't answer that kind of question" quickly went away and my mind
sprang into action. It's amazing what we can do when we don't
hold ourselves back. I just simply put my ego and
expectations aside and "let go." If that's what this
adventure is going to be for the next seven weeks, I'm going to enjoy
Over the course of this week, I've had
experiences to quietly examine what motivates people to do the things
they do... including myself. Putting time into this
self-discovery program is prompting me to take a few minutes for myself
that I would not otherwise do, which is surprising since I usually feel
But this has given me
permission to expand
myself into new directions, thinking more freely and actually feeling
more peaceful. That's something I didn't expect. I feel like
I'm on a path, a good path, that is gently unfolding as I seek
it. I feel empowered, yet settled right now. How
interesting. And although I'm already following my passions,
I now realize how each of my passions has lead me to my next
"passion," and how it has been an upward spiral. Very
One thing I felt today is how nice it
feels to have someone else encouraging me on a consistent
basis. After a day of being "out there" mixing it up with
people and being the encourager, it felt really nice today to just have
someone uplift and support me.
that ends my first week of the program. I have more
understanding about how
passion plays a significant role in our happiness and am more open to
attracting it in whatever form it comes.
I Drew From This Week
you're wondering if I came to any conclusions from this week about my
purpose, the answer is "yes."
I am truly
on my path of
purpose and passion, and have been for years - even though I didn't
know it. This week has given me new awareness and insight
into why I'm drawn to doing certain things. And this insight
and awareness gives me validation that I'm on the right path.
to say, though, the course I took is no longer available despite the
fact that it was one of the best online personal development programs.
But, I have another option for you that's even better
because it has subliminal affirmations and self hypnosis instruction.
