Daruma is a traditional Japanese wishing doll that helps us to focus on achieving our goals and dreams.
HOW DARUMA WORKS
First, decide on a goal you are committed to achieving.
Next, draw or paint one of your Daruma doll's blank eyes. This represents THE START of your COMMITMENT to achieving your GOAL.
Then (and this is very important) place your Daruma somewhere visible in your home or at the workplace so that while he focuses on your objective, you'll be reminded to do the same.
Once your goal is realized, signify your accomplishment by drawing Daruma's other eye! Congratulations!
