The Secret is Out: ‘I AM a Lovable ME!’ Attracts Success
Scottsdale, Arizona (PRWEB) May 23, 2007
The Secret by Rhonda Byrne has helped over five million readers understand and benefit from the law of attraction. While this is phenomenal, Sharon Penchina, C. Ht. and Dr. Stuart Hoffman have taken the secret to a whole other level. Like Byrne, they have written a self-empowerment book based on the power of positive thought. The difference is that Penchina and Hoffman wrote I AM a Lovable Me! for children.
“Our internal dialog has more to do with our success than any other factor,” states Penchina. “Teaching positive self-talk early on is like learning the ABC’s of self-empowerment.”
During the formative years, children are very receptive to new ideas and concepts. In addition, their brains are extremely flexible and they have not developed poor behaviors, habits or beliefs. Therefore, it stands to reason that young children are better prepared to assimilate and utilize the power of thought than adults. They are more open to developing a positive internal dialog and accepting it as their key to success, happiness, and prosperity.
Like memorizing facts for a test, anytime a child hears or says something repeatedly, his subconscious mind absorbs the information. This information is stored and called upon when needed. When this includes statements like, “You are loved, lovable, and special,” children readily accept these thoughts and live accordingly. This is why offering children praise and teaching them positive self-talk through affirmations is so important–and the earlier the better.
According to Mark Victor Hansen, co-creator of the New York Times bestselling Chicken Soup for the Soul series, “Positive habit building beginning at an early age has a dramatic effect on the subconscious mind.” This is why Hansen recommends parents give I AM a Lovable ME! Affirmations for Children a prominent place in their family library.
I AM a Lovable ME! Affirmations for Children (48 pages; Full-color Illustrations; 2 Imagine Publishers; ISBN: 0-9740684-5-4) is the first in a series of empowerment tools for children. Written by Sharon Penchina, C. Ht. and Dr. Stuart Hoffman, it utilizes fantastical whimsy to teach positive affirmations and self-talk. Every page of this vibrant book bustles with vivacious energy as its narrator, the irresistible Lovable Me bug, helps children identify what makes them special. This in turn cultivates a positive self-image, which is absorbed into their subconscious where it becomes part of their internal belief system.
Penchina and Hoffman, like Hansen, believe even the youngest child is capable of developing a positive internal dialog. “Unlike the more developed adult mind, children are very receptive and accepting of what they are told,” says Hoffman. “Children need to be able to express pride in themselves as well as hear it from others. When a child’s feeling of self-worth and self-esteem comes from within, the result will be lifelong confidence.”
The response to the I AM a Lovable ME! empowerment series has been overwhelming. In addition to being an Amazon.com #1 bestseller, I AM a Lovable ME! Affirmations for Children has been honored with the Mom’s Choice Award, CNE Seal of Excellence, and the Parent to Parent Adding Wisdom Award, the only award program recognized by The Walt Disney Company. In light of this success, Penchina and Hoffman would like to add an animated children’s TV program featuring the Lovable Me bug to the series. Among other things, the program would teach relaxation, empathy, and the power of affirmations and positive thought.
