Most of what we remember is wrong.
Plenty of studies confirm this.
Even in school, when we’re told exactly what to study, we can’t remember.
We get B’s on tests.
So when things happen to use unexpectedly, it’s a sure bet we really don’t know what happened.
But beyond the events that happened, we have to come up with the meaning of those events.
Those events are driven by very, very complex factors.
Our beliefs about ourselves.
How we see ourselves in relation to the world.
Also consider that maintaining ego safety is critical.
We have a whole bunch of filters that are designed to help us maintain a sense of normalcy to our lives.
We don’t like things that force us to question what we think is true.
Particularly about ourselves.
Our personalities are based on not only the things that have happened to us, and how we responded, but the meaning we give to them.
This can get very, very confusing.
But here’s the thing.
Because most of the stuff we remember isn’t as true as we think it is, we can change.
At first this sort of feels like we are breaking some law of mind.
That the memory police are going to show up and arrest us.
But your thoughts are your property.
You can think them any way you like.
Your memories are your property.
You can remember them anyway that you like.
Of course, you need to be careful.
You can’t go too far.
Like if you go on a job interview, and the interviewer said they weren’t going to hire you, it wouldn’t be a good idea to pretend he said he WOULD hire you.
And then show up ready to work.
Don’t Break Reality
That would put you in the loony bin category.
And in reality, you don’t really need to change the memories themselves.
Only the meaning you gave to them at the night.
Or even easier, change the memories you reference.
For example, most people are terrified of public speaking.
So when they get ready to speak, they automatically reference memories of unsuccessfully publicly speaking.
But you can change this.
It takes time and it’s not automatic.
But you can train your brain to instead reference all the memories of fun and playful times when you publicly spoke.
All the times you got fantastic results.
And instead, reference those memories.
And slowly and patiently build a whole new personality from scratch.
Mind Persuasion has plenty of books and courses to teach you how to speak hypnotically and persuasively.
