Practice, Practice, Practice

Everyday I am practicing what works.
I appreciate practicing the best I know.
My life works because I practice.
My daily practice is to be truly helpful.

Practice makes perfect.
Practice creates success.
Practice clears bad habits.
Practice makes winners.

To be good requires practice.
To get better requires practice.
To be great requires more practice.
To be perfect requires even more practice.

Why do some think they can make changes without practice?
Practice consists of making mistakes.
When we judge the mistakes we may get stuck.
When we get stuck, some want to quit practicing.

When practicing is boring or stressful, some want to quit.
When practicing is interesting and fun, many are willing.
When practicing is a punishment for mistakes, then it will be resisted.
When practicing is valued and rewarded, it will be appreciated and enjoyed.

Practice smiling.
Practice being kind.
Practice learning something new.
Practice keeping your house clean.
Practice eating healthy and with enjoyment.
Practice playing an instrument or a sport.
Practice taking impeccable care of yourself.
Practice speaking only words of gratitude.
Practice living in integrity with your values.
Practice keeping your agreements.
Practice forgiving your mistakes.
Practice making wise choices.
Practice being truly helpful.
Practice creating a good life for yourself and those around you.

Learn a new skill, new attitude, new way to serve.
Practice what is new everyday in every way with everyone.
When you fail, immediately try, try and try again and still again.
Practice what you want to see and be, have and do and it will all come true.

You can make your life better in every way with practice.
Do not quit on yourself.
Do not get stuck in judgment.
Keep on practicing and you will succeed!

Counting on you to practice!
