The 21 Day Challenge Everyone Should Take I'm on day 14 of a 21-day challenge that I semi-invented and so far I have to admit the results have been nothing short of amazing. Now, when I say that I semi-invented it, that is purely because I took the idea from the excellent book 'Psycho Cybernetics' and put it in a format that everyone can follow, myself included. I'm not exaggerating when I say this challenge can literally help with any aspect of your life that you would like to improve. Before I go into more detail on how you can follow along, I need to talk a little about our 'self image' and why it is very important.

6 Things You Might Live To Regret If You Don't Stop Doing Them Now In history as in human life, regret does not bring back a lost moment and a thousand years will not recover something lost in a single hour. ~ Stefan Zwei And regret will never bring back one missed chance or one ‘if only.’ Don’t wait until you’re overwhelmingly desperate to start making changes…stop doing the wrong things now and create space for the things that will make you happy. Starting today: Make sure you’re not making more excuses than progress One thing that will always get between you and your desires are the stories you tell yourself as to why you can’t do it, have it, be it. Nothing is hopeless until you say it is. Allow your successes to arrive in installments, if that’s what it takes. If you really want something, stick with it, be persistent; you are more powerful than you know. Stop wasting time and energy When you started your morning did you think of things that needed to be done, but you hadn’t got around to? You’re adding unnecessary stress to your life. Be fearless.
