Your Private Practice
In a previous post it was mentioned that I am studying a book called Psycho-Cybernetics by Maxwell Maltz.
We started into a practice exercise to create a vivid picture in your imagination.
The next step is that during this 30 minutes of practice exercise you see yourself acting and re-acting appropriately, successfully, and ideally!
It does not matter how you acted yesterday.
You need the faith that you can and will act in the ideal way — so practice it!
Practice in your mind.
Let yourself be the ideal you!
Give it 30 minutes a day. Keep doing it. Always practicing being the ideal you!
In your practicing, if you slip up, that is you see yourself acting in a negative, hurtful or destructive way, forgive yourself and move on.
This is your practice environment, so you can re-do it.
When you re-do it, you can then act and re-act appropriately!
How often do you get to do that in “real” life!
If something does not feel right, meaning that it is not appropriate, successful or ideal, you can change it and do it again.
Just think of how this happens in sports.
As sports fans, all we see is game day.
What we do not see is the hours of practice each of those athletes put in just to make it to the team before even getting onto the field.
Even then, they still go through many hours of practice to stay in top condition.
That is what we are doing here.
Another important point about athletes is that they have a coach.
Just like any sport, you can learn to do it on your own.
But if you want to develop any level of skill, you need a coach who can guide along the way.
I wish you all the best,
