Why am I doing this?
What’s my purpose
Use sensory specific language to describe the personal value you will receive from achievement of the outcome result. The more palpable the narrative you use to describe what the end result experience will be—the more powerfully your mind, will, and emotions will scratch for options to keep that experience active. Your body doesn’t know the difference between the stimuli from real experience and imagining the end result. This is why self talk is so powerful. Even though you have not experienced the outcome (yet), your physical receptors get the same perks as if you had.
Subjective vs. Objective
- Subjective: I’m personally the subject which assumes bias and individually influenced opinion.
- Objective: I’m outside of the equation to the point I can see people, actions and factors as objects.
There is a connection between the value placed on the completion of an objective and what is considered acceptable proof. Our societal standard for verifiable proof is founded on the scientific method. This scientific results based system makes intangible factors (like how your five senses effect you and are effected by you) seemingly impossible to prove, gauge, or control; because sensory inputs are completely subjective. You are the only one who will ever be able to know how you feel (for example), because no external constant could possibly be found to measure your feelings against. Yet, sensory inputs make up the entire baseline on which the value of completion of an end result is constructed.
Each visit to an ATM or elevator I use the braille and count how many dots are in a line. It’s a consistent reminder that there are sensory channels I don’t hone, but are available with practice.
If I was blind, I would have the touch sense more directly identified.
How does this fit into everyday business life… the only reason I’m not achieving the end result I want to experience is that I have not honed the ability to make it a reality. It all starts with outsourcing what you don’t need to be an expert on to practice what you do. Aim small – miss small.
