In a frequently discussed study, some researchers studied the progress of bowling teams who trained in different ways. A team practiced based on technical guidance. Another practiced from video footage of their mistakes. One third practiced video recordings of their best performances. And then there was a control team that just practiced. The team that practiced on the basis of their positive experiences had a significant, significantly greater progress than the other teams.
The same result is achieved in many other studies and confirmed in practice.
What you have your attention to is getting more of. The thought and spoken word have a creative power. We can use it in numerous everyday situations.
The colleague who rudder again ...
You may see a colleague leave the copy space messy. You decide to talk to her about it.
Instead of saying, "Now, the copy space resets. I can not accommodate my stuff when you leave packaging and papers all over," try: "I love a tidy copy space where the table is empty, so We can use it for sorting and stapling, and empty packaging has been cleared away. Do you want to keep the room free from excessive things? "
Perhaps it is relevant to mention what you have found left behind. But let the main message be how you want it to be in the future, and tell why it will do you well.
The brain forms images
It's about how our brains work. What we think of and talk about, the brain forms images. The images are saved and increase the likelihood that we will attract or create something that matches them.
There is just that little detail that the brain not can form an image of the words 'not', 'nobody' and 'never'. (Test: What do you see for your inner look if you say to yourself: 'The car should not be red'?)
When you serve the image of a tidy copy space and how you have space to sort and book, your colleague is more likely to remember it. There is also a greater chance that you notice when it's tidy so you can let go of the notion that she always fiddling. A recognizable word further promotes the positive development.
Challenge: Think about what you want
I would like to invite you to try it next month. Be aware when you talk or think of something you are dissatisfied with and ask yourself how you want it to be. Then let the picture of the wish situation fill the most; and imagine how it will do well when it's become the way you want. It remembers your system.
Also try with children (replace, for example, "Do not draw on the table" with "I just want to draw on the paper"). And try it with yourself (replace, for example, "I do not want to eat more candy" with "I only want to eat what's good for me").
I would like to hear about your experiences!
