> Brighter Future?
> A branch of psychology called neurolinguistic
> programming has made an interesting and useful
> discovery: You can change the way you imagine or
> remember things without changing what you imagine, and
> it will change your feelings. For example, if a visual
> memory makes you sad whenever you think about it, you
> can make that mental picture smaller and dimmer, and
> when you do, the memory won't make you as sad. Since
> you haven't changed the content of the memory, you
> haven't lost any information. You've simply made it
> less painful.
> When you visually remember a pleasant memory, you can
> make the picture more colorful and the memory will
> give you even more intense good feelings. You can make
> your pictures of the future brighter, wider, deeper,
> or you can bring the images closer. Changes like these
> will make you feel different-even when you leave the
> content of the picture the same.
> These are general guidelines. You'll need to
> experiment for yourself to find out what will work for
> a particular image. For a few people, making an
> exciting picture brighter makes the feelings less
> intense. And for some kinds of pictures, increasing
> the brightness would cause the feelings to become less
> intense - for example, a romantic memory.
> What is true for visual images also applies to the way
> you talk to yourself. For example, if you have trouble
> motivating yourself, try changing the tone of voice
> you use when you speak to yourself. Some people order
> themselves around. The voice they use to talk to
> themselves is harsh and commanding. Listening to
> yourself being bossy can have the same effect as
> listening to someone else being bossy: It can make you
> want to rebel. Change your tone to friendly or
> seductive, and you might feel more motivated. When you
> tell yourself, "I can do it," fill your internal voice
> with enthusiasm and back it up with inspiring music.
> The possibilities are virtually endless.
> The important thing to understand is that the way you
> code your inner world has an impact, and you have
> quite a bit of control over that coding. You can
> change it deliberately. When you do, it will change
> your feelings, which will change your actions, which
> will change the world around you.
