HOW DARUMA WORKS
(1) First, think of something special you wish to achieve.
(2) Next, draw or paint one of your Daruma doll's blank eyes. This represents THE START of your commitment to achieving your GOAL.
(3) 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!
NEVER GIVE UP ON YOUR DREAMS!
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, ever give up on our dreams.
