Forward Memory Article 2
In article 1 we discussed the possibility of projecting memories of excellence into the future and whether they could have an influence on our lives and the level of success we achieve. In this article we will look at a typical day in my life because I have been using this system to better my self esteem and create self improvement for more than 3 years now.
The alarm clock is set at 6am, I am always awake by 5.45am because I have a special task that must be performed before the alarm starts my day. I need to create a forward memory of a day of excellence.
My eyes remain closed and I visualise my diary for the day. What jobs need doing, which people I will be meeting, what will be discussed and the outcomes I am seeking. For the following ten minutes I create a forward memory of the outcomes. For instance a meeting is scheduled with a tough negotiator for 10am and I know he wants to screw the price down to a level that is too low for my company to sustain. I will visualise the end of the meeting, not the content because this would be pre-judging. We are shaking hands and are all smiles, a happy compromise has been reached and the order is secure, as is the profit margin. I do this with each diary entry. Then I use the final five minutes before the alarm rings creating forward memories of what I wish to achieve in my private life today.
The result is that I go into each situation with a memory of a satisfactory outcome and the affect this has on my mindset is such that I can guide each meeting to a satisfactory result for all parties. It is done with minimal effort and almost zero stress.
When I arrive home after work I have no thoughts of work, this time is private time. It is a time to tell the people I love most how important they are to me and how much I rely upon their support. To listen to what they want to say and generally join in with a harmonious life and I love every moment of it.
Am I a special person? No. Nobody could have been more fiery and short tempered than me. It wasn’t until I learned that I can project memories of future success into the present that I started to calm down and live a stress free life.
Never close your mind to anything that can make life more enjoyable — try it for yourself. If you can have a memory of the past that takes place in the present why can’t you have a memory of the future that takes place in the present. Think outside the square and watch your self esteem expand.
