  • People have, on average, 70,000 thoughts in a day, 40,000 of which are repetitive; this means you could be telling yourself over and over again that you’re not good enough or not worthy
  • With EFT, you can shut down the negative voice and free your mind for more positive thoughts
  • Schiffman recommends that you take “should” out of your vocabulary altogether, because whenever you say, “I should do this or that,” you’re setting yourself up for a great deal of disappointment, guilt and shame; say “could” or “will” instead
