This morning I was getting a bite to eat at a restaurant.
The waitress came by my table and muttered something
in a tone I couldn’t quite hear. As she’s waited on me many
times before, I said, “Huh?”
“New day, same old shit,” she said. Then she pushed her index
finger in a downward manner, as if pressing a rewind button.
She even said, “Everyday is like a recording.”
I smiled and said, “Naaaah.”
This brightened her day a bit – even though I really wasn’t responding
in a way that agreed or disagreed.
Truth is I DO agree with her. SHE is reliving each day as if it’s the same.
Yet, when I go to the same restaurant and am waited on by her, each
instance is totally new to me. Even if I order the same food, it’s still
new. I don’t bring the same old Matt to the table each day. I bring a
NEW Matt, someone with fresh aspirations, inspiration and ideas.
One of the biggest reasons why people have trouble
succeeding is simple: They won’t let go of their past.
Instead, they recall, relive and dwell on all the negatives.
Negative opinions of others
Their own fears and self-doubts
All of these negatives are like old chalk left on a blackboard.
It can be removed by simply taking out an eraser and
wiping the slate clean. But this is only going to happen when
you are willing to do so.
In order to rise above the old chalk, though, you must do
MORE than wipe the slate clean. You must also give
yourself NEW instructions.
These new instructions are no different than the other words
you would read on a blackboard or computer screen –
with ONE major distinction. These words are positive.
They are pure and powerful. And they’re designed to
take you where you want to go in life. They’re are not
designed to keep you stuck in the past.
There is a time and place to recall the past – but it’s the
positive past that needs to be recalled most of the time;
the past that, when focused upon, causes you to create
MORE success experiences.
Each night, before I go to bed, I make sure I wipe my slate clean of
mistakes, failures and setbacks. I wipe the slate clean even if I think
it doesn’t need it – because I know that forgetting to do so makes for
a slate filled with notes that someone else placed on the board. Don’t
let anyone put notes on your board, yourself included, unless they are
leading to the fulfillment of your goal.
As a member of the Psycho-Cybernetics Success Group, each month I

generating instructions for your mind to follow. I also include a Success
Questions card that you can carry with you during the day.
You’re going to want to make sure you get these each month, along with
the newsletter and Amazing Meditations CD.
