How My Son Stopped Biting His Nails

From my owned experienced... let me give you an example about my son. My son... who was nine years old, when I started listening to these tapes. I was listening to self-help tapes everywhere we drove in a car, all around the house and sometimes even in the park. I had tapes playing all the time.

One day, he came to me and said, "Mom, I've been biting my nails too much, and I have tried to stop it, but I can't". He would bite them right down to the rub and it was terrible. I myself tried putting hot sauce on them to solve the problem. Have you ever heard of that? You put clear hot sauce on there so that when they bite their nails the taste of the hot sauce makes his mouth burn.

We lived in San Jose, California before, because of a lot of Mexican restaurant, we had taken him there since he was three years old and it didn't work, because he loves hot sauce. We tried a lot things that I know to help him to stop biting his nails. I one time mentioned, too, if he will continue it, he will lose his nails and never grow again.. but it doesn't work. Do you believe that to my other son who always sucked his right thumb... I do the same thing what I did to my eldest one. I'd tried everything that could possibly work to him and the last thing I thought when I told him if he put his thumb again and accidentally bite and swallowed his finger he will lose his thumb and it would look ugly. From then my second son never sucked his thumb again! But not to my eldest son, it didn't work for him.

So in desperation, my eldest son came to me one day and said, "Mom, I hear all those tapes you listen to all the time. Do you think there is something you could come up with to help me how to stop biting my nails? I said, "Well, let me see what I can do". I recorded a little 10 minute tape and bought of those tape recorder at Radio Shack that plays the tape in one direction and then reverses and play it in the opposite direction... As long as you can physically hear the recorded new messages of self-belief that you are not going to bite your nails again they will do their job of reprogramming it to you. So we ran a little pillow speaker from the tape recorder under his pillow and he listen to the message, "I am not biting my nails again". All night long for 30 consecutive days.

He came to me toward the end of the first month and showed me his beautiful nails. He had not bitten them at all. In fact, he was even surprised. And he said to his dad, "Dad, how does this stuff work? I don't understand, that I am not biting my nails any more. I don't consciously remember doing anything different". I said to him. "Honey, your brain didn't have a choice".

It really didn't you know. And the same thing is true for yourself if it hears the positive input enough to ourselves.. Your brain has no other choice.. but to program in , not biting your nails again and eventually believe, the strong information that tells the positive truth about you, in advance. Isn't that exciting? What if you could apply this to our area of your life that needed improvement?

Yes, you can.. why not. And when it comes to being successful in our lives, to be wealthy...the biggest area are most people to focus on... is the area of money and finances. We need to realized, too, that the right to have financial security is not given to others. Money, security and financial strength are the natural possessions of those who choose to have them...not bad to follow!
