Brain and Self-Talk
Are you sabotaging yourself and your success by the way you talk to yourself? Steven Campbell, author of the book "Making Your Mind Magnificient," believes many people are. Your brain believes what you tell it and your subconscious follows the pictures your words create. If you think something is going to be very difficult to accomplish and tell your brain that, you will make it even harder. He wrote: When you say, "No way!" the brain simply agrees: "OK, if you say so. You're right; there is no way." However, when you exclaim, "Absolutely. Of course I can do that," the brain not only agrees with you, but actually endeavors to find a way for you to accomplish what you want to accomplish. Hm-m-m-m-m.
