Notes to Myself, Redux

“The positive thinker sees the invisible, feels the intangible, achieves the impossible.” ~ Unknown

notes to myself_Sunday, February 25, 1973. I remember a note I wrote to myself that day back when I was in college. It said, “Finish reading Notes to Myself by Friday for psychology class.” The note was not kept in a cell phone, palm pilot or any other kind of digital device. It was written on a big paper calendar hanging on the wall in my dorm room.

The last sentence of Friday’s blog writing called Keeper of the Keys, stirred that memory. Scroll down to Friday’s blog if you have not read it or follow this link if you missed it.http://bit.ly/UXoiY9

In 1973, as a sophomore in college, the world was becoming my oyster. Full of wisdom, optimistic, I’d made it through my freshman year, with good grades.If I am not mistaken, I may have been on the Deans List.

psycho-cyberneticsNotes to Myself, a curriculum-required book for my psychology class helped me make an important decision. I thought,  “If being a psychology major meant reading other meaningful books like that, I was up for the task.”  I hung on the words of Hugh Prather, the author of Notes to Myself, along with the thoughts of Maxwell Maltz, M.D, the author of Psychocybernetics. Psych students, at that time, flung around words like psychoanalysis, existentialism and transcendental meditation.

Somewhere in my  moves from apartment to apartment after college, my two bibles of thought were discarded. Since then they have been replaced by other personal development books introducing me to new ideas about this thing called personal fulfillment (or the art of living.)

keeper of the keysIf you remember the movie, The Secret, about the Laws of Attraction, and believe in the principles of that movie, as I do, you will also enjoy Keeper of the Keys.  It is an Indie Fest Award Winning film, as well as a winner of the 2012 Best Independent Film, at the Las Vegas International Film Festival.

The beginning of a New Year is the best time to set new goals personally and professionally. There are many movies and books, inspirational in nature, that give insight into what makes the human spirit thrive, grow and change for the better.
