ASSOCIATION AND DISSOCIATION
Association is a method of
reinforcing positive thoughts, and dissociation is a technique
of eliminating negative ones. I associate with thoughts that
empower me and dissociate from those that steal my dreams.
Most people get this
backwards. When disaster threatens, they fully associate with
it. They bring it up in their mindís eye and place it in front
of their face. They blow it out of proportion so that itís
larger than life. They make their life into a personal torture
chamber. They strap themselves into the electric chair of life
and turn on the current.
I dissociate from my failures
and shrink them down in size so they are barely visible. I push
my shortcomings and failures off in the distance. I accept
responsibility for them, but I donít torture myself with them.
I associate with my victories
and enlarge them to such a big size that they are the only thing
I can see. I examine them in great detail and revel in them
many times each day. I savor each morsel of victory and
celebrate it each day of my life.
