There are two ways to achieve change in your life, change that has a lasting impact. Change through the repetition of words and/or experiencing an emotional breakthrough.
Repetition of Correct Words
We get bombarded by ideas, themes, words constantly and each has an influence upon us, even the billboard you really did not want to see. Where you put your mind’s focus will indoctrinate you to that focus. When I hear the word indoctrination, I almost hear a negative word, because of how it has been used in my life. However, I realize that the negative relationship I have had with the word indoctrination, stems from a false and negative belief. That word seems to be associated with group thinking, cults and even death as an end result.
But does the word indoctrination truly mean that? Basically, anything that garners our intention is going to influence and therefore indoctrinate us to something. All the shows we watch, blogs we read, games we play, people we associate with, will they not indoctrinate you? Well if that is the case, then this is great news and can be used to your advantage. That means you control what indoctrinates you and in turn you control your future. Yes, everything you spend any time on will change you towards that direction and can change your entire life. How fast can this occur? Well I don’t really want to put a time on it, but instantaneously is a reality in some cases.
The other way to experience change is through an emotional breakthrough. These experiences can be explosive and cause a rapid or instantaneous change, both for the good and the bad. You can see evidence of this with people that have been sexually assaulted or suffered a traumatic event. The last mentioned aren’t the positive kind of emotional events, but there are ways to change an individual though positive breakthrough methods that can be equally as life-changing in the positive direction. Many companies pay good money to have their employees gain experiences that will transform them to function better in teams and in turn increase profitability.
At Black Salt, we use both methods to encourage change in people’s lives. Our team building experiences are designed for participants to learn more about themselves and encourage change for the good, both individually and as a team.
