A Program For Success

I attribute much of the suc­cess I have had in life to the fact that I have exe­cut­ed a con­stant re-pro­gram­ming over the years. I cre­at­ed for­mu­las accord­ing to the needs of each moment and per­fect­ed them. Over time, I have dis­cov­ered sen­tence con­struc­tions which go direct­ly to the uncon­scious sec­tors that deter­mine the reac­tions of the indi­vid­ual. It is, after all, peo­ples’ reac­tions, their way of react­ing to life’s cir­cum­stances, that direct them to suc­cess or fail­ure, to hav­ing friends or not have any, to cul­ti­vat­ing health or dis­ease, to be hap­py or unhappy.

For exam­ple, when a stranger insis­tent­ly looks at some­one, a less edu­cat­ed a per­son may react with aggres­sion, ask­ing: “What you look­ing at?”. While anoth­er more refined per­son, may respond with a spon­ta­neous and auto­mat­ic smile, as this is their nat­ur­al way to act. The first will have made an ene­my, may hear what unpleas­antries, or may even got to the ulti­mate con­se­quence, a con­fronta­tion. Whilst the sec­ond will have made a friend, a per­son may even be help­ful you in the future. It is from reci­procity that suc­cess sto­ries are built.

Thus, it is unac­cept­able that every­thing bad hap­pens “only to you”. These same things hap­pen to every­one. The dif­fer­ence is that while some react with sports­man­ship and kind­ness, oth­ers with para­noia and hysteria.

As for the pos­i­tive emo­tion­al repro­gram­ming, its effec­tive­ness depends upon the ver­bal con­struc­tions used. It is impor­tant to remem­ber that our emo­tion­al side is like a child. It will seek the most enjoy­able path.

A true sen­tence which may have no met­ric, no melody or cap­ti­vat­ing mean­ing, can­not pen­e­trate the shield­ing that pro­tects the psy­che pro­tects itself from the con­stant bar­rage of exter­nal sug­ges­tions, such as adver­tis­ing, by the nat­ur­al attempts of a speak­er to con­vince anoth­er in an exchange of ideas or a more heat­ed discussion.

A state­ment such as “I am beau­ti­ful”, would prob­a­bly be reject­ed by the uncon­scious and, there­fore, be use­less for most peo­ple. On the oth­er hand, if the state­ment is accept­ed by the psy­che, it would sim­ply be an implant­i­ng of self-sug­ges­tion, a sim­ple decep­tion that would not lead to any real progress on improv­ing the good looks.

The pro­gres­sive repro­gram­ming works like this:

(1st stage: I want) “I want to improve my per­son­al appear­ance”, consequently,

(2nd stage: I will) “I will progress grad­u­al­ly in improv­ing my per­son­al appear­ance,” and concludes,

(3rd stage: I am) “I am always improv­ing my per­son­al appearance.”

This is indeed a con­vinc­ing strat­e­gy. It con­veys matu­ri­ty, truth­ful­ness, con­sis­ten­cy. It allows time and the con­di­tions for the order to be obeyed. The set­ting of goals and dead­lines is very effective.


To mentalize the morning, when waking up:

I take this new day in my life with a will­ing­ness to be a bet­ter and hap­pi­er person.I want to grad­u­al­ly reed­u­cate myself to bet­ter serve the peo­ple with whom I come into con­tact today. I will learn more things, accom­plish some­thing good, I will rejoice the beau­ti­ful and sim­ple things like a breeze, a ray of sun­shine, a bird, a flower. I want to be more tol­er­ant today than I was yes­ter­day, and tomor­row I will be more than today. I want to share the good things, the good thoughts.


If you receive an aggression:

I know that this per­son has prob­lems. Life must not have been as to him/her as it has been to me. I am grate­ful for this. As such, I find the strength to over­come this inci­dent and move ahead to enjoy the best things life has in store for me.


When someone needs your help:

I am hap­pi­er than most peo­ple. I want to do the max­i­mum I can to bring a lit­tle hap­pi­ness to every­one. Even if doing it costs me some­thing, I feel reward­ed for being the mes­sen­ger of hap­pi­ness. There­fore I expect no recog­ni­tion nor gratitude.


If something goes wrong:

It could have been worse. I am hap­py this was all. Notwith­stand­ing, in the future I want my actions to reduce the prob­a­bil­i­ty that such cir­cum­stances hap­pen again.
