Do you know what NARC is?
Hint: It has nothing to do with narcotics or narcissism.
NARC stands for Neurological Associative Reactive Conditioning, and it has everything to do with the Law of Dual Thought.
Pleasure feels good. Pain feels bad. Plants and animals do not have a choice as to whether something will cause pain or pleasure. Only humans have the power to attach pain or pleasure to having something or not having it. YOU choose what experiences you want to associate with pain or pleasure.
In a previous blog post I shared the important role this concept played in my life at this time of the year five years ago, when we lost our eldest son, James. Since we drive through the accident site many times a week, I knew I had to do something or the pain would be unbearable. So instead I chose to see it as the place where James met his God face to face… his Portal to Heaven.
NARC is a dramatic and powerful way of conditioning myself to react consistently in a positive way to what could otherwise have very negative results. I’ve already seen this at work in other areas of my life. I’m looking forward to seeing how it will affect me as a writer.
From The Greatest Secret, by Earl Nightingale…
An outstanding medical doctor once pointed out six steps that will help you realize success:
1. Set yourself a definite goal.
2. Quit running yourself down.
3. Stop thinking of all the reasons you cannot be successful, and instead, think of all the reasons why you can.
4. Trace your attitudes back through your childhood and try to discover where you first got the idea you couldn’t be successful.
5. Change the image you have of yourself by writing out a description of the person you would like to be.
6. Act the part of the successful person you have decided to become.
The doctor who wrote those words is the noted west coast psychiatrist, Dr. David Harold Fink.
The Gal in the Glass
Every one of Dr. Fink’s six steps is taken care of in the Master Key course… but especially the daily reading of The Guy [Gal] in the Glass, by Dale Wimbrow. I could not explain better than these powerful thoughts from our Week 13 Webinar…
Think of April 2015. What will your future self want you to be doing right now — today? Will you awe your future self? Will you be strong? Or will you make all kinds of excuses as to why it won’t work? Will you finish your story? Can you stay strong enough?
The gal in the glass is your Best Friend! She’s the link to your Future You. Give your future self prosperity — not problems. YOU are in charge, so stay on the exercises. Be your future self NOW. Treat your future self the way you want to be treated NOW.
That says it all for me. In every of life — family, health, happiness, business, writing — giving my future self prosperity rather than problems means making the best choices NOW.
Increase in me that wisdom
Which discovers my truest interest,
Strengthen my resolution
To perform that which wisdom dictates.
