Whether you admit it or not, there are times when you feel trapped.
Student: What has me feel trapped?
Teacher: 60,000 No’s!
Many psychologists, therapist and psychiatrists agree that between age 2 (terrible 2’s) and age 6, the average child is bombarded with 60,000 NO’s (some are loving NO’s and many are harsh and ridiculing NO’s). The howls of childhood NO’s don’t disappear on their own.
Again, whether you admit it or not, sometimes, you feel trapped by NO; you say,
“I’m going to break my golf score; NO, that’s not possible!”
“I’m going to begin my own successful business; NO, don’t be foolish!”
“I’m going back to school and get my degree; NO, it’s too late for me!”
Oftentimes, when the trapped individual finds a way to break free of his psychological jail cell of NO’s, he’s sighted by a prison guard who heaps a dozen NO’s on him, which quickly has him rush back to his psychological jail cell. This pattern of ‘escape and recapture’ can occur for a lifetime if we make the wrong friends, marry the wrong person, or never leave the ghetto conditions (psychological ghetto), in which we were born.
How do NO’s stop you from creating the life you dream of experiencing? What aspirations and aims have you filed away by putting off ‘til tomorrow (the morrow that never comes)?
Your great chance for escape from the howl of NO is full knowledge of the NO’s and of those who condemn, ridicule, harshly judge, and scold you when you say YES to life; this includes the World Voice – it howls deep into the night (just watch the evening news).
(1) You are superior to the NO’s.
(2) You are far more intelligent than any naysayers who haunt you with “NO!”
(3) If you’ve been following the latest Mind Adventure blogs, you now have superior wisdom.
Soon I will release a little orange book that will teach you a powerful way to turn down the volume on howling NO’s (not just temporarily, but permanently). I call this process ‘The Four Vital Steps of R.O.A.R.’ … it allows a faithful higher force to act for you (this force is found right inside of YOU!). “May ‘The Force’ be with you!” … it is with you; it always has been with you; it will always be with you. You will learn how to close your mind to the Woesome NO’s, with their defeating attitudes and worrisome moods. The NO’s will never again stop you from creating the future you dream of living into.
Dare to declare to yourself, ‘I am climbing to new heights of living … I am taking a mind adventure beyond my present mental state … I am accepting the Principle of Progress as my natural state of being’. Blaise Pascal offers a refreshing tip: “A principle installed in a good mind brings forth fruit.”
