What’s the ONE THING that Coca Cola, McDonald’s and everyone you find attractive have in common.
Hold that thought.
Today we are talking about brainwashing.
Don’t get me wrong, brainwashing as a word has a negative connotation in the regular parlance. Or can be used in a comedic sense.
Today we will split the difference. The brainwashing we are talking about it is a good thing.
The art of planting ideas to change beliefs. To acheive better performance in your life.
It turns out that humans are programmable robots. We are programmed through our ears. (We are VOICE activated robots!)
Our brains constantly simplify the world around us. Turning facts into stories. Everything we do is a story.
By repeating a story over and over again, it becomes the story we believe and the story we trust.
Repetition is the only guaranteed method to program a human.
That is why Coca Cola and McDonld’s continue to advertise widely and often. They are leaving traces of their product in your mind.
Even if you don’t like these products, the repetion foreces you to think about their product. Each time you do that, they win.
It is the same for people. If you see the same person often enough, they become more attractive to you. Even if you don’t like them!
Be careful of what you “hate”. Hate and love are two sides of the same coin. That coin is the strong emotion signal.
By focusing on either love or hate, you are growing fond of that thing.
This is why I do not allow people to say they “are not good at English” or “can’t do xyz”. Each time you say the phrase, your brain is listening. And it agrees. And therefore you program yourself to “not be good at English” and be “unable to do xyz”. So if you can brainwash yourself to lower performance, why not flip the script and brainwash yourself to higher performance!
Strong emotions win over weak emotions. (Good or bad)
So if you want to change a belief. Reach a new goal. Increase your performance. Learn a new language. Say it out loud. Over and over everyday. You must use your voice, to reach your ears, to program your brain.
Say the things you eventually believe. The things you believe will come true.
Be like Coca Cola and McDonald’s.
Repeat your story until it is a powerful thought that no one lese can take away from you.
And close your toilet seat cover. Just do it.
