Practice, Practice, Practice

When I was 9 years old, I remember being reduced to tears by an argument with my grandmother about how to dry a glass. She wanted to show me a new and easier way, but it was different and hard for me to manage.

I still like to feel competent. When I start something new, or something I have not done for a long time, I feel awkward. When I feel awkward, I am readily distracted. Sometimes I even manage to forget that I was trying something new and go right back to doing whatever I was doing before.

When I was learning to use Logosynthesis to recover my energy from the various places it was stuck, I was definitely awkward. My targets weren't right. I got the sentences mixed up. I started doing other things after I had said one sentence and never got back to the next sentence, and most of all, I completely forgot about my new tool when it would have been very helpful to use it. I needed to be reminded.

I am not unique. I hear many people, whom I know have experienced using this tool, describing places where they feel stuck. If I remind them about about it the usual response is, "oh, I forgot." Then, the next time I see them, "it worked!"

Like other tools, this one only works if you remember to practice enough to feel competent when you use it, and then use it to resolve your own stuck energy often known as anxiety and stress.

This paragraph is a comment I wrote about a passage on Page 111 of Letting It Go: Relieve Anxiety and Toxic Stress in Just a Few Minutes Using Only Words (Rapid Relief with Logosynthesis®.) You can see the passage in the book. You can also see the excerpt here. This link will take you to Bublish.com, where I regularly publish comments on parts of this book. This is a site where authors share of their work. You can subscribe to my musings, there, as well as to the musings of many other authors. It’s a great place to learn about new books and I recommend that you visit.
