Here are four examples of affirmations that came true for Adams:

  1. “I, Scott, will become rich.” He received two flashes of insight, telling him to invest in two specific stocks. Both these stocks grew like crazy over the next year.
  2. To date a woman he’d encountered briefly at work. She was out of his league, but they ended up briefly dating.
  3. To score 94 on the GMAT test. This was the score required to enter MBA programs. He’d only scored 77 previously, but this time he received the exact score of 94.
  4. “I, Scott Adams, will become a famous cartoonist.” This was the affirmation that changed his life.

The key to this success were fundamental principles that he picked up along the way.
