39 reflections and advice I give to myself. As Seneca wrote in his Letter 26, On Death and Old Age, “This is what I say to myself, but I would have you think that I have said it to you also.”
If you daydream in the middle of a conversation, Milton Erickson has taught us, you are entering a trance state. Visualization can be a part of this. During these times you are more susceptible to suggestion, as your active brain is focused elsewhere and the auditory inputs are being passed directly to your subconscious.
Your visual input overrides most other senses, and creates your reality.
The word “Because” gives your brain a reason to consider an idea. Once an idea is in the brain, it’s more likely to be accepted, if only temporarily. Robert Cialdini wrote about this in Influence and Simon Sinek uses this as his basis for Start with Why.
Your memory is fluid. Over time, it can become completely inaccurate.
Putting people into a positive frame of mind will improve the chances they want to work towards your goals. Starting with Yes and asking questions with positive associations is far better than asking how someone is doing today.
