Utilize the power of autosuggestion for increasing your level of serenity. Autosuggestion must be worded positively. Repeat what you do want, not what you don't want. Therefore you say to yourself, "I am becoming more and more serene each and every day." Or even, "I am becoming more and more serene with each step that I take," when you are walking. You are not necessarily making a statement of present fact. You are telling your brain the messages that you want your brain to make your reality.
(From Rabbi Pliskin's book, Serenity, p.86)
