I will never forget. That, is the least I can do.
Perhaps you’d like to entertain Marcus Luttrell with your pissy little word games. I’d pay good money to watch that.
I can’t wait for that movie. The book was great and I saw an interview with Marcus where he said he was very pleased with the way the movie portrayed the events.
There are PROVEN DEMONSTRATED ways that the subsconscious mind reacts to language. That Marcus Luttrell isn't aware of it is too bad for the whole cause he wants to push. When he instructs with the verb "forget," that is exactly what the mind will eventually do.
Since the Civil War, words have been powerful medicinal tools -- yes, in pain control via hypnotism. It is DOCUMENTED that hypnotic suggestion lowers the blood pressure SIGNIFICANTLY, hence doctors used hypnosis in lieu of drugs to operate on their patients.
Noum, have you ever wondered why in your dreams, you find yourself doing physically impossible things and thinking it's entirely normal? The reason for this is that the subconscious mind has no concept of limits or negatives, "non" activations of concepts. The word "no" or "don't" or "never" or any other negative instruction, is quickly disintegrated in the subconcious mind; it only thinks in terms of what to DO, not what not to do. Doesn't that make sense?
So when you tell yourself, "Don't forget the car keys," your conscious mind retains the message, but your subconscious mind blanks out on the "don't" and the operative word connected to "car keys" is "forget." What WORKS, and I mean it really works, if you don't believe me try it sometime, is to instruct yourself: "Remember the car keys."
Stand fast. Hold resolve. Be confident. Have faith. We will be victorious.
Let the bad guys do the losing, the wavering, the failing, the tiring.
Understanding "pissy little words" is how to communicate effectively and lastingly.
That trailer gives me goosebumps.
Imagine your story portrayed by Mark Wahlberg. Exellent.
Finny, you are absolutely right about positive wordage.
It really does work. It takes effort to change the habit, but it makes a difference.
At the races, it was SO VERY GRATIFYING to see that in nearly all of the 911 commemoratives there (and there were lots,, the words "Remember" and "Always remember" were used -- one rarely saw the word "forget" with a negative. I was so happy to see so many who understood the power of language and resisted letting their egos be offended by the concept of "pissy little word games."
You’ve REALLY helped change that bad habit for me.
I’ll always remember you for that! “;^}
