Repetition opens the front and back
doors of my mind. When I use repetition, I walk through the front door
and deposit positive thoughts on the counter of my mind. When other
people use repetition, they sneak in the back door and deposit their
The advertising industry uses the power of repetition to hijack my

billions of dollars planting their slogans in my mind. When they repeat
them, they arenít talking to me. They are talking to my mind. Once
their slogan is in my mind, I will have to listen to it for the rest of
my life. Advertisers donít care if I listen, because they know that my
mind will do their job once they have hijacked my thoughts and flown
them to their destination.
I use the power of repetition to put good things into my mind. I look
at pictures of my dreams dozens of times each day. I repeat my positive
self talk until my mind repeats it back to me. I hijack my own mind and

While I was working in Saudi
Arabia saving up freedom chips for my voyage around the world, I kept a
picture of Bora Bora on the wall above my computer desk. Every day that
I worked in Arabia, I burned that picture into my consciousness, because
I wanted to have Bora Bora on my mind. That picture constantly reminded
me of who I was and where I was going. Although my colleagues and
patients thought I was Dr. Dave, I knew my true identity. I was captain
Dave, master and commander of Exit Only, and I was on my way to French
Polynesia. Although my body was in Riyadh, it was just a matter of time

For more than ten years,
I kept Bora Bora on my mind, because I didn't want to miss out. I knew that as
long as I focused on my dreams, I would be willing to do whatever it
takes to make them happen. Living dreams is mostly about focus and
persistence. If you have a positive focus, and if you're endlessly

your dreams. You won't regret it.
I use the power of repetition to
advertise my dreams to myself many times each day|
Inside my mind I have a mental billboard that has pictures of my dreams.
Every day, all day long, I see my dreams coming true.
I see myself driving around the world in my Land Rover Defenders.
I see myself sailing on the ocean of my dreams. I see millions of people
visiting my websites and reading my books. I see my websites
launching other people's dreams all around the world. I see my
podcasts pushing minds in a positive direction. I see my Power
Graphics changing the way people think and feel.
Every time I look at my mental billboard, I focus on my dreams, and I
see them coming true.
