in life starts with a
thought, and our language is a part of how we set the stage for the
results that come from our thoughts. What we
say, through our
words, our language, contributes to how we are set up to either succeed
or fail. Our language is like the rudder on the biggest aircraft
carrier in the world. The rudder steers it, and whatever direction it
aims the ship, that's where it goes. Without it, the ship can have all
the power in the world, and it will use all that power to wander
aimlessly, until it hits land, runs out of fuel, or sinks.
internal language, or self-talk, is like a kind of "theme and
variations" on our beliefs. Many of us are not even aware of the kind
of self-talk we use in our heads. From the most creative of thoughts to
the most destructive self-condemnation, our mental language is an
ongoing conversation we have with ourselves at all times. We cannot
escape this internal chatter except through using disciplined
meditation techniques. Most of the time, our self-talk is influencing
us, like an internal sales pitch on what we are worth and what we
deserve to have in our lives. The tone of our internal influencing has
been set by what is acceptable in our culture.
Society gives us "scripts" that stack the
deck against us.
ever noticed the general tone of negativity in our day to day
communication? We say my back is killing me, we unlock the dead
bolt, we make hard earned dollars, we have mid-life crisis,
we kill two birds with one stone, we have
dirty old men, dumb
blondes, dim wits, broken English, old maids, short tempers, and bad
habits! It's amazing the way we shape our verbal environment! Our face
breaks out, we're in sad shape, we're messed up, we're over the hill,
and our kids go through the terrible two's! We say I'm mad about you,
whatever can go wrong will go wrong, things are going to get worse
before they get better, we stumble on an idea, we're just scraping by,
we're out to lunch, we're killing time, we quit while we're ahead,
we're bored to tears, we fail to understand, we're down on our luck,
we're dying of curiosity, and the list goes on!
phrases are what I call "scripts" that can turn into
self-fulfilling prophecies. The cultural acceptance of these phrases
ingrains their rightness. This makes it even harder to not believe
scripted by everything around us. If we see enough of something
in our environment, it moves our cultural standards. Our cultural
standards shape much of what we decide as being ok, and not ok.
Key: Our minds work in pictures, not
someone says, "American Flag", we don't have a little typewriter or
bouncing ball going across our brain.... we "see" a picture of an
American Flag. Even if someone says, "DON'T visualize a yellow school
bus..." we still "see" it, with no effort on our part at all.
pictures we have seen or heard go into our subconscious, and
stay there... mounting a case for the "message majority". As we build
up the number of positive pictures logged in our subconscious, we
gravitate toward (buy into) the positive outcome faster. That's how
advertising works, and the ad companies know it. Whatever we put in our
mind, our mind accepts.
the time, if you put no conscious direction into your language,
you will be automatically choosing the scripts that others have set up.
If you use words that identify the perfect end result, you are using
the most efficient means of directing the steps you take to what you
What you think and say automatically links to the scripts of society. When
we think, "I can't afford [something}..." it teams us up with eveyone
else who "can't afford" something. When you say "I can't afford it.."
to someone else, a part of their mind (empathetically) agrees with you.
STOP THAT! Do you really want people to agree with that? We can have
people supporting our success automatically when we say "I'm saving for
that synth I'll be getting..." because a part of their mind
automatically agrees with that too! Which would you rather people think
"for" you? Not affording, or saving and getting?
Whether it's a new P.A. system or a better relationship, our life is
always changing as we direct it. Since you now know this, you know that
the outside world is no longer responsible for what you allow to go
into your mind. You now pay closer attention to what's being said
around you, and to pay closer attention to what you say about yourself!
It really matters.
This is not hocus-pocus -- it's science. Check out the book "Beyond the
Quantum" by Michael Talbot and read about the findings of quantum
physicists and psychologists who confirm the power of result language.

doesn't make perfect. Perfect
makes perfect! You can
practice sloppy all day long, and your
chops will remain.... Whether you sing or play an instrument, your
muscles have memory. To get it perfect, slow it down till every note is
just right, then pick up the tempo.
2. Say what
you do want, not what
want. Example: "I'm working on increasing my income so I
can afford a new guitar." instead of, "I'm broke and I don't have
enough money to buy that guitar." This works great with kids, too. Tell
them what you DO want instead of what you DON'T want. Example: "Stay
here on the sidewalk/grass where you'll be safe." instead of "Don't run
into the street - you'll get hit by a car." If you say a negative, just
follow it with a positive.
3. Give up
your wants. Pretend from now
that you get
exactly what you think. I mean... EXACTLY... what you think. Example:
If you think, "I want more money." you will KEEP wanting.
If you think, "I attract people who are happy to pay me very
well for my services." you will ATTRACT.
your focus from goals to intentions.
don't stick to goals, but once you identify your intentions,
they stick to you. Intentions are what you create from. Example: I set
an intention to be happier in my profession. I had set goals and was
reaching them, but I wasn't as happy as I wanted to be. Once I
identified that I felt too alone working out of my house, I moved into
a new business complex where I am very happy being around lots of
Key: Goals tend to center around things
intentions center around ways of BEING. Example: Goal - I will
have a new guitar by December. Intention - I am a great guitarist, and
I intend to have a new guitar by December that elevates my performances
and enriches the accomplishment of my dreams.
compliments are welcome...
compliment women in personal ways, and men in result ways. Example: When a female
vocalist finishes a great track in the studio, say, "You are a
wonderful singer. We love how you really brought out the feeling of the
let's listen back..." - If it's a guy who just finished singing, say,
"Good job singing. That take sounded great and
felt great too. Let's listen
language is great when working with kids. It's done
wonders for my son who won "Most Positive Attitude" in his school in
6th grade. For me, what's most imporant to teach often isn't taught in
schools. Here's the cirriculum I endorse:
1. You are One with everyone and everything in the Universe. All things
are part of One Living System.
2. Because you are One with Life, you have the power to create what you
wish to experience in your life.
3. The way you create is by what you think,
4. It is not possible to make a mistake in the process of creation, and
failure is an illusion. You are succeeding at creating every thing
you've created. Everything that you create is perfect just as it is,
5. When you create, you are fulfilling the purpose of your life,
because creating is how you grow and evolve, and that is what you and
all living things are on Earth to do - to make known the unknown.
6. Life Itself is your greatest teacher, and it has built-in
consequences, but never punishments. Punishment is not a part of Life's
plan, and has no place in the Kingdom of Life. Learning was always
meant to be easy --- it is actually a process of remembering what your
soul has always known. This kind of "learning" will be joyful when you
use the experience that you are now having to remember as much as you
can about Life. Then you will remember what you need to remember when
you need to remember it to make life work in the future.
7. Try to never harm another person, place, or thing in any way, but
only to help others and love them as best you can, especially when they
have made a mistake or have done something wrong. If you can do this,
you will create a friend of just about everyone you know, and when you
need one you will never be without one.
8. There is enough for everyone. It takes very little to be happy, and
the fastest way to create happiness for yourself is to create happiness
9. Your very best friend is Life Itself, because it never ends. When
the portion of your life that you spend on Earth is over, there will be
no "Judgment Day," no condemnation, and no punishment, but simply an
opportunity for you to review all of the thoughts, words, and actions
of your life and decide whether, as you go on to other adventures, you
wish to choose again when confronted with similar circumstances. Choice
is the process by which you evolve, and ultimately experience Who You
