Day 8 talks about how real self change occurs in the middle of comfort and blowing the stress out of proportion.
If something is intolerable, you start to think of it in perfectionist terms - “why bother starting if I’m going to fail?”
At the same time, growth occurs when you are uncomfortable.
The book’s exercise in this chapter is to come up with a set of affirmations, each written down in three different ways - in first, second, and third person, always in present tense, always written in the positive.
The book suggests writing down any negative thoughts associated with your written affirmations, as this can give you more insight into the way your mind works. Keep repeating your affirmations, and keep evolving them.
