I was on another one of those unproductive YouTube binges when I came across it.
The video was a guy talking about using affirmations to ‘program reality’. He mentioned that affirmations could directly change the programming of the universe… And more precisely the ‘script’ the universe runs on…
Much like you would by changing commands in a computer script.
Intriguing, I thought, but not something I believed.
For some reason though, I had an epiphany when he mentioned that.
Forget about ‘programming reality’ with affirmations…
Can I actually ‘program myself’?
When I observed myself, I noticed it was as if I had a ‘script’ in my own head that made me act out the same habits every day.
And when I observed other people, it was the same.
Everyone following the same habits and routines day in, day out – as if they had a ‘script’ that programmed them to do so.
So I asked myself…
IF my theory is correct…
That there’s an ‘autopilot script’ in everybody’s head…
How can I change my programming at will?
How do I change the commands in my own ‘script’?
Well, I found the method.
Being the nerd that I am, I even created an app for it.
And so far after 2 months, here’s the changes I’ve made to my own ‘script’:
- Quit my Twitter/Reddit/Hackernews addiction in 10 minutes of ‘self programming’
- Finally stuck to the keto diet for a solid month after ‘editing my script’
- Lost 5.2kg
- ‘Programmed myself’ into a daily morning exercise habit. Haven’t missed a day in 42 days.
- Created and released a SaaS app from scratch, in just a few weeks
- Changed my ‘procrastination’ habits for good, can work for hours with no distractions
I can’t believe it was this simple.
And I know having an ‘app to program yourself’ sounds way too good to be true.
But this has 100% worked for me – and I’m sure it will for you guys too.
In fact, you don’t even need the app to try the method.
A pen and paper works too.
Let me show you how it’s done…

Earlier, I mentioned the epiphany came at a specific point…
When the guy in the video mentioned using affirmations to program the ‘script of reality’.
Now I don’t really believe it’s possible to do that.
But I do think it’s possible to program yourself (the same way you would train a pet).
But for years I couldn’t figure out a definitive method to ‘program myself’ that would stick 100%.
Until I found this one.
As we know, computer scripts are made up of commands.
So if my ‘script’ theory was true, then I could surely change those commands, right?
How do I change the commands in my own script?
The answer is stupidly simple, and you don’t even need my app. A pen and paper is fine.
Let’s take a Twitter addiction for example. Your current command in your ‘script’ will be:
“I want to use Twitter.”
Now your logical mind hates the fact that you use Twitter so much.
But your illogical animal mind…
It runs on autopilot through your ‘script’ – which overpowers your physical actions.
So to fix this addiction, we reverse the command…
By writing this affirmation:
“I NEVER want to use Twitter.”
And keep writing this line out for 10 minutes.
10 minutes is all, just to give it a try and see if it works for you.
And make sure to say each word in your head (or aloud) as you write it.
In traditional affirmations, they’ll say “I will achieve xyz.”
But that’s wrong for practical purposes.
You see, your animal brain is addicted to these things because the command is “I want xyz”.
It literally desires the thing your addicted to.
Hence, the command always starts with “I want…”
So you need to always reverse that command.
Another example is coffee addiction.
You might notice that your animal mind always wants coffee as soon as it wakes up…
That’s because the current command is:
“I want coffee as soon as I wake up.”
You reverse that command by repeating:
“I never want coffee as soon as I wake up.” or even “I never want coffee.”
Give it a try with a habit you’ve been struggling with.
10 minutes, a pen and paper is all you need.
Keep an open mind and think of it as an experiment…
If it works, you’ve just changed your life. If not, you lose 10 minutes.
But before you go, I need to ask a shameless favor…
It’s more of a question, actually.
I mentioned that I made an app for this process (and to keep track of my commands)…
And I don’t know if it’s the visual cues, haptic feedback or that keyboard typing is faster and neater than hand writing…
But the app seems to work even better than pen and paper. Maybe the tactile feedback appeals to the ‘animal brain’… And can reinforce the commands into your ‘script’ better.
Either way, the app was a nerdy way to make the process easier for myself. And I wanted to know…
Do you guys want me to release the app on iOS, Android & Web?
Along with a ‘cheat sheet’ to change different types of habits you might be struggling with?
(Like a ‘command cheat sheet’ for common bad habits people want to reverse such as smoking, social media addiction etc.)
Please sign up to the Beta email list below. And I’ll let you know as soon as it is released.
Or if you have some feedback, you can reach me on my personal email:
Enjoy the method and have fun programming yourself!
