Don’t Miss Q & A With Author Ken Pisani of AMP’D, A LOL Dramedy Novel

Posted on Updated on

This is great, if we could all direct our minds to simply stopping a negative behavior or thought. Imagine if we believed and visualized and just let go of old thought patterns? I believe we can, it just takes practice. For me, catching negative thoughts and reconditioning the way I think is a daily thing. But, like anything else the more you practice, the better you become and the less you struggle with it.

It’s the repetition of affirmations that leads to belief. And once that belief becomes a deep conviction, things begin to happen. ~Muhammad Ali
