and habits are “hard wired” into us and that there is nothing we can do about it.
The Science behind Backsliding and the Law of Attraction
I am going to share with you some stone-cold facts. First, you are fully responsible for the
results you are getting. Nobody else is responsible. Not the “guru,” not your parents or peers,
not the media, not “society” or “human nature.” If you want to make your life better, the only
person who can do that is you, and the only person who can stop you from making that change
Second, every person has the ability to change their habits, thoughts, and behaviors. This is not
some mystical, unattainable concept, but something that can be learned, practiced and
Third, there is no such thing as “backsliding.” There is nothing supernatural about people who
have a success mentality versus those who do not. The fact is, we will go toward our

Now, if I told you “Whatever you do, do not think of a pink elephant,” what’s going to happen?
Chances are, the first thing you will do is picture a pink elephant.
Maybe you have tried a version of this with your friends. At an inappropriate time, have you
ever reminded your friend not to laugh? Or maybe someone did it to you. And what happens?
The person usually ends up stifling (or not stifling) a laugh, causing themselves embarrassment.
Does this mean we are self-destructive? No. I will explain the facts later. But first, another
example to prove my point. Have you ever gone car shopping and found a car you like, and
then noticed everybody else on the road seemed to be driving the same car? Contrary to what
