Positive thinking isnít enough.
Positive thinking is a world better than negative thinking, and positive
programs run exceptionally well in my mind. Thinking positive is great
when I can do it, but I canít always do it. It doesnít matter how
positive I am, how many positive affirmations I have made, or how much
positive programming I have done, when I trigger a negative
neuroassociation, my mind instantly moves in a negative direction. All
my positive thinking is wiped out. Negative neuroassociations are
weapons of mass destruction that instantly destroy a positive mind.
Positive neuroassociations are just the opposite. They are a form of
instant positive thinking. When I trigger one of them, I immediately
create a positive state of mind.
Most people are experts at creating and trigger negative
neuroassociations. Only a few people bother to create and trigger
positive ones. I keep a close watch on my itchy trigger finger. I
avoid negative neuroassociations like the plague, and I create and
trigger positive ones many times each day.
You have dozens of neuroassociations at work in your
life. When you look at a picture of your workplace, you instantly
feel positive or negative. A picture of your boss makes you
immediately feel good or bad. A picture of a beach sends a chill
of fear up your spine because you once nearly drowned in the ocean.
All of those feelings, good and bad, were triggered by in image on
Hundreds of triggers are embedded in your life, and those triggers are
hard wired to your mind. Pulling a negative trigger instantly
makes you feel uncomfortable as negative emotions well-up in your mind.
Smart people install positive neuroassociations and embed positive
triggers in their life. They pull the positive trigger many times
each day to instantly create a positive mind.
Triggers can be anything that you want. Crossing your arms a
particular way, touching your ear, putting your hand in your pocket,
taking off your glasses, putting on your glasses, a smile - any of these
things can be a trigger that is part of a positive neuroassociation.
Put your right hand in your pocket, and say, "An ounce of action is more
powerful than a megaton of fear." If you do this enough times, you
will discover that every time you put your right hand in your pocket,
those words will instantly pop into your mind. Anytime you feel
afraid, you can take action and send fear packing by simply putting your
right hand in your pocket. That's how easy it is to make a
Making positive neuroassociations is easy, and you can use this tool
whenever you want to push your mind in a positive direction.
GUILTY AS CHARGED
Take a look at these fish. They belong to a group called
"Everyone Anonymous". Almost all the fish in the sea belong
to this not-so-exclusive group. They distinguish themselves
by always doing the same thing as everyone else. They swim
in the same direction, they turn together, dive together, and
surface together. They look exactly alike, and when the fish
police put them in a line up, they can't pick out the good fish
from the bad. There's nothing to distinguish one fish from
the other since they all look and act the same.
Being a member of "Everyone Anonymous" does have its perks.
There's apparent safety in numbers, and that may keep them
from being eaten. On the other hand, their clone-like
behavior may actually attract predators who have a sixth sense
that allows them to detect weakness and easy prey.
If being like everyone else guaranteed a great life, then
membership in "Everyone Anonymous" would be a good idea, but the
opposite is true. These drones lead dull predictable
preprogrammed lives. The script for life has already been
written, and the outcome is sure. They will never have a
real life because they are always doing exactly what everyone else
is doing. They will never think an original thought or dream
time I see a school of fish, I think about my life. I ask
myself If I am a member of "Everyone Anonymous." When my
life is over and on judgment day I stand in the final line up with
all the rest, I hope millions of people can point their finger at
me, pick me out of the line up, and say, "He's the one. That's definitely him. He's
different from the rest. He didn't conform, and he lived his
dreams. He's guilty as charged."
That's my master plan. I want to be guilty of living my
