7 Secrets To High Performance Thinking

Part 3 - Autosuggestion

John Colanzi

So far we've discussed relaxation and visualization. In this report we're going to talk about autosuggestion aka self-talk.

Autosuggestion is the simplest of the 7 secrets. It's also my favorite.

It's simply talking to yourself. You pick a habit or quality you wish to acquire and repeat it to yourself over and over.

It's my favorite technique, because it literally changed my life.

Don't shrug it off.

It may appear simple, but it's oh so powerful.

I was in my late 40's, my business had gone bust and my health was shot.

I saw no way out.

I just knew the odds were against my ever getting out of the situation I found myself in.

Broke, the clock ticking and unable to work.

Well as the song says, if you ain't got nothin', you ain't got nothin' to lose.

Since I had nothing to lose, I started using autosuggestion.

I admit it. I talked to myself.

Luckily I was alone when I did it, or I'm sure they'd have thrown the old net over me.

I wasn't even sure it would work, but I did it anyway.

It was nothing fancy, just two sentences I repeated, day in and day out.

The first sentence was, "I am a lot more creative than I ever imagined."

The second was, "I have an unlimited number of creative ideas in my subconscious."

Two simple sentences.

So what happened?

At 50 years old I've been given a second chance.

I've gone from throwing in the towel and preparing to lead what Walden called a life of quiet desperation, to making my living as a writer.

I can work from anywhere.

I make money doing something I love.

If autosuggestion isn't powerful, I don't know what is.

It's changed my life.

In part four of this report we'll cover more Secrets Of High Performance Thinking.
