What do you say to your yard buddies? Do you support them, reassure them, boost them up? I’m sure you do!
There is an NLP theme which is ‘perception is projection’, and what this means is that you can’t make a judgement about somebody, if that characteristic isn’t also in you too. So if you’re super positive about someone else, then you are also saying it about yourself.
However, this also works the other way round; if you tell someone they’re selfish, then you are also identifying that characteristic in yourself. So I want you to be really mindful of both your language and what you say to people around you; it’s a direct reflection on your own characteristics, and your unconscious mind will take it as truth, whether it is real or not.
Watch your language!
