Horizontal Scroll: Supportive Quotes

"For as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.”

Proverbs 23:7 (King James Version)

______________________________________________

"The first place we lose the battle is in our own thinking. If you think it’s permanent then it’s permanent. If you think you’ve reached your limits then you have. If you think you’ll never get well then you won’t. You have to change your thinking. You need to see everything that’s holding you back, every obstacle, every limitation as only temporary.

Happiness does not depend on what you have or who you are; it solely relies on what you think."

― Buddha

"If you correct your mind, the rest of life will fall into place."

― Lao-tzu

"The Power Illusions: How You Are Verbally Crippling Your Children"

By Chick Moorman and Thomas Haller

"Stop annoying me."

"Don't make me come up there."

"That made her feel bad."

"Be careful or you'll upset your father."

"Your whining is driving me crazy."

"Don't let me down now."

"You really know how to ruin my good mood."

Do you talk like this? If so, you are teaching your children two life-altering power illusions. These illusions are unconsciously helping them learn and believe negative myths about personal power that could stick with them their entire lives. These falsehoods will not assist them in living happy, productive, fulfilling lives. Not today, not tomorrow, not anytime in the future.

Down Ribbon: Testimonials

“A combination of verbal diseases identified and those same maladies cured. The Abracadabra Effect is about health, your health, my health and the health of all the people on this planet.”

Margaret King Ahmed
Parent Involvement Educator
Dearborn Schools

__________________________________________

The Abracadabra Effect lays out a challenge to us all. Are we going to go on spreading dis-ease with our language or are we going to stop the unhealthy ways we speak, think, believe and act? What an opportunity we have to truly live responsible, empowered lives.”

Elvira Medus, LCSW

__________________________________________

As a linguist, I am always observing how language is used by others.  Abracadabra, however, opened my eyes to the way I use language.  I can’t even say a simple phrase like, “That really makes me mad,” without evaluating my response to the situation and thinking about how I can change my language to facilitate a different response.  Chick and Thomas talk about “The Makes Me Psychosis,” “Unabelism,” “Preventarrhea,” “Shoulditus,” and many other “dis-eases.” I was amazed at how many of them I used without even knowing it. This book provided me with the tools to adjust my language to become a more accountable, productive, and confident person!
