“Today is a new day and I am a new Nathan, totally free to make new choices.”
This is one of my daily affirmations. It frees my mind and my emotions to move and think in new ways.
In his writings, Jack Welch talks about how he played a mind game with himself in order to view the world and his company from a new perspective, a new mindset. When he flew back into the country from overseas, he pretended that he was a new CEO (the new Jack Welch) coming in to straighten out the mess his predecessor (the old Jack Welch) had left behind.
By releasing his emotional attachment to the decisions he had made in the past (they were made by someone else, the “old” Jack in this mind game), Welch was able to see situations more clearly, make better decisions.
“Today is a new day and YOU are a new you, totally free to make new choices.”
