Obtain through deceit!

BRAINWASH YOURSELF! (...through positive affirmations)

If we’re all going to delude ourselves (to varying degrees) anyway, then why not use the power of denial/self delusion to our advantage?

Many powerful people in the world do just that… whether they are aware of it or not. It can start small, e.g. telling yourself white-lies that you know will help you achieve something. This works best if it is something you know you will eventually need/want, but aren't motivated to achieve now (of course seeing this is based on individual judgement you’ll have to decide for yourself when to do this).

I’m not really advocating total ‘head in the sand’, ignorance-of-surroundings type actions, but seeing you will to a certain extent have false notions (that you base decisions on), so why not let the ideas that will affect you positively (and hopefully those around you positively) dominate?? Of course that involves a conscious decision to aim toward improvement (which is usually quite subjective). In summary, trick you own mind in a way that benefits, your self and others… how you do that is your own choice. Pain subtraction, pleasure addition.

Food for thought... Fight or Flight??
