Tool for the Week of June 3, 2019 — FOR-GIVE

Art is a gift to GOGI from GOGI student Nicholas Moran. FOR–GIVE as a Tool is not about forgiveness. The two are different. FOR–GIVE, as used by GOGI, is a tool, not a concept. Most religions and most cultures teach the power of forgiveness, which frees you from many negative emotions and feelings. The difference is that the GOGI Tool FOR–GIVE can help you come to a greater understanding and application of forgiveness in your life. FOR–GIVE as a tool requires that you protect [...]

Tool for the Week of May 20, 2019 — CLAIM RESPONSIBILITY

This is an excerpt from page 303 of the How To GOGI book. As a GOGI Tool, we use CLAIM RESPONSIBILITY in a slightly different manner than the words suggest. We are using CLAIM RESPONSIBILITY as a tool, not as something your teacher, parent or parole board want you to do. As a tool, CLAIM RESPONSIBILITY is a proactive tool and relates to the future. You can use CLAIM RESPONSIBILITY to take charge of your actions, your reactions, your opinions, your words, and your responses to [...]

Tool for the Week of May 6, 2019 — POSITIVE WORDS

Art is a gift to GOGI from GOGI student Domingo Gonzales Jr. This is an excerpt from page 73 of the How To GOGI book. It is amazing how much you reveal about yourself when you choose your words. If you wrote down all the words you say each day, are they mostly negative or mostly positive? Do you think that others force you to choose a certain set of words? Do you make excuses for the negative words you choose? Words contain the [...]

Tool for the Week of April 22, 2019 — POSITIVE THOUGHTS

Art is a gift to GOGI from a GOGI student. This is an excerpt from page 44 of the How To GOGI book. The challenge for some people in altering their perspective is that when they are being negative they claim they are simply being realistic. They are so stuck on being “right” or “honest” or dealing “truthfully” with “reality,” that they are seeing only the negative and are stuck on how right they are about the negative. This poses a problem for them [...]

When you are told, “just don't think about smoking a cigarette,” it seems as if all you can think about is a cigarette. The human mind does not work well with negatives. It seems as if mind will go to the “do not” as quickly as if you said “go for it.” As you train your [...]
