DARUMA is a traditional handmade Japanese wishing doll that keeps us focused on achieving our goals!
Daruma is closely associated with a beloved Japanese proverb, Nana korobi yaoki, which states, “Fall down seven times, get up eight”. The Daruma doll’s unique rounded shape allows it to return to its original position even if knocked over, representing such persistence.
Daruma reminds us all to NEVER GIVE UP on our goals and dreams!
Here are the FOUR simple steps to using a Daruma doll:
STEP 1 - Decide on a SPECIFIC GOAL you are DETERMINED to ACHIEVE.
STEP 2 - DRAW one of Daruma’s blank eyes (either eye is OK) to signify your COMMITMENT to achieving your GOAL.
STEP 3 - Place Daruma somewhere VISIBLE in your home or office so that while he FOCUSES on your GOAL, you’ll be reminded to do the SAME!
STEP 4 - Once you’ve achieved your goal, draw in Daruma’s other eye to say THANK YOU!
If it works i´ll upload the version with the 2 eyes :D
