Repetition is Hypnotic
Repetition is hypnotic. Repetition is hypnotic. Repetition is hypnotic. Repetition is hypnotic. Repetition is hypnotic. Repetition is hypnotic. Repetition is hypnotic. Repetition is hypnotic. Repetition is hypnotic.
There is no better way to say that. If you look at our commercials, our newscasts or everyday language you will find endless repetition. What is this? BECAUSE IT WORKS… PERIOD. If you want to change your life, you need to practice repetition. But make sure its the repetition that YOU HAVE CHOSEN.
The Media Knows
Even before television the media and newspapers knew that fear sells. Drama sells. Sex sells.
If you wish to have a happy life you need to start programming your own mind, rather than letting someone else do it.
Every day we decide or don’t decide to choose the type of day, week or life we want to have. You are either programming your mind for this or someone else is. Which one do you think will be better for you?
It begins early. Our parents teach us what is important to them. Our schools teach us what is important for you to know. And our society teaches us how to behave. What if they are just repeating the same information that they were taught?
My Favorite story
There is this guy, he’s married. Every Sunday before he and his wife go to church, he watches her prepare a roast. She peels the carrots and potatoes. She seasons the roast. And the last thing she does is cut the end off the roast and place it on top of the roast and closes the lid. Then they go off to church and have lunch when they get back.
So after about 10 years of watching this routine, the guy asks, “honey, why do you cut the end off the roast?”. The wife replies “that was how her mother taught her to do it.”
So then the wife gets curious and calls her mom and asked why her mom cuts the end off the roast before cooking? The wife’s mom had the same answer; it was how she was taught to do it.
The mom now curious calls her mom, the wife’s grandmother and asks “why she cut the end off the roast before cooking? The grandmother’s reply was simple… her roasting pan was too small. So three generations were doing a behavior and only one of them really needed that cooking style. Just because someone does a repetitive behavior or was taught one doesn’t mean that there isn’t a better way to do things now.
Think about your repetitive patterned behavior. Is there a better way?
