Paul McKenna Changed My Life in Seven Days-ish.
Paul McKenna is not the reason I write. But I totally blame him for why I am obsessed!
It all began back in 2006 when I was having a bit of a bad time of it for one reason or another. So I bought Paul McKenna’s book, Change your life in seven days. It didn’t. Well not in seven days anyway. But I’m convinced he hypnotised me.
Mr McKenna says on his CD, (and I won’t use his exact words, because when he pops over to read my blog, he may sue me for stealing his copyright) but to sort of paraphrase him, he says, ‘You can do whatever you want with your life, if you are determined enough.’ And he says too (and I’m paraphrasing again) that if you listen to his disc over and over you will find the tools that will help you fulfil your dream.
So I decided to listen to his CD over and over. And whilst doing so, I thought about my dream to write.
The outcome is this – I’m now obsessed with writing. And I really can’t stop, NOT NO HOW, NOT EVER. Now maybe this would have happened anyway. Gazillions of people get to this point and much, much further without the aid of Paul McKenna. But I do wonder whether, in my case, he played a part in my writing obsession!
