This brings us to the third leg of the "Empowerment Triad," "Repetition." You can probably recall many examples, especially in school, in addition to the multiplication tables, where repetition helped you learn something that was important.
It is a well known fact that one comes, finally, to believe whatever one repeats to one's self, whether the statement be true or false.
Unfortunately, repetition alone will rarely enable you to replace old attitudes...unless you use repetition in conjunction with passion. Using repetition alone, it would be unlikely that the emotions would be touched and the true meaning of the information would be absorbed. Long term memory can more readily be activated when emotion is linked to the new knowledge. You can more readily remember information or an experience when the information or experience was initially introduced accompanied by deep emotion.
The repetition...which will be easier because of the passion and the pleasure...will work to create the desired change in mind-set, replacing the negative "I can't" messages with the positive "I can" messages.
Each leg of the "Empowerment Triad" feeds the other in a never-ending power-building, upwardly spiraling process that will give you confidence, and the ability to believe in yourself. This is the power you will need to build a Strong Powerful Foundation; a foundation from which you can build your success and achieve your inner-most desires; a foundation upon which you can put your "castles in the sky."
If you have built castles in the sky, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put foundations under them.
