Use the Power of Words and Just Do It!

Here’s a productivity tip I used to complete the first draft of a 30,000 word manuscript in under a month while managing a full work schedule and ordinary life. It works any time I intend to do something but don’t quite get around to it. So no matter what you’re stuck on, whether it is making a phone call, producing marketing material, facing a blank page, or even cleaning the bathroom, this could be invaluable to you.

I learned this tip from a student who was panicking at her need to complete a huge amount of paperwork for professional certification in an increasingly short period of time. She was in one of my Logosynthesis® training programs and came in one day with an 8 inch stack of completed paperwork. She reported that she had aimed the three simple Logosynthesis sentences at the imagined target of hearing her mother say she would never succeed.

Using Logosynthesis for self-coaching is the subject of my book, Letting It Go: Relieve Anxiety and Toxic Stress in Just a Few Minutes Using Only Words (Rapid Relief with Logosynthesis®), but that title doesn’t hint at the other uses for this
amazing process.

I decided to not worry about what specific block I was dealing with when I sat down at a blank computer screen and felt tempted to play on social media instead of the work I knew I had to complete. I simply said “I retrieve all of my energy bound up in whatever is blocking me from writing.” I followed that with the two other sentences and immediately found myself in full production mode.

If you are in a hurry to try this process, I invite you to download a free copy of the Quick Start Guide to Using Logosynthesis to get the Logosynthesis sentences immediately. If you really want to learn about the power of this process, the change your life, grab your copy of Letting It Go: Relieve Anxiety and Toxic Stress in Just a Few Minutes Using Only Words (Rapid Relief with Logosynthesis®), at your favorite online book store.

It May Not Be An Emergency

Is it about road rage or something someone close to you says? It doesn't matter. It's hard to stay in control! When it happens to me, I'm shocked at what I want to say and do — often about something I had long since forgotten about. My brain is hijacked (a Daniel Goleman term) and on one level, I am certain I must fight, or run, or freeze! When I wait a few seconds my thinking mind catches up and sometimes I can figure out how to respond in a rational way. I thought there was nothing I could do about this except learn to breathe deeply until I stopped shaking. I was wrong! The right words can unhook this reaction. Just 3 sentences with the correct target can change everything.

This paragraph is a comment I wrote about a passage on page 57 of Letting It Go: Relieve Anxiety and Toxic Stress in Just a Few Minutes Using Only Words (Rapid Relief with Logosynthesis®.)

Change is Challenging

If you are fairly comfortable in your life, occasional experiences of anxiety and depression may not bother you. You believe this is just the way things are. It's especially true if you believe that it will be difficult and time consuming to change.

Yet holding on to old resentments, fears, and hopes can sap your energy.

If you are very uncomfortable in your life you may want to change but fear delving into the trauma of your past that leads to your discomfort.

Until I discovered Logosynthesis, the process I teach in this book, I had to work very hard to help my clients take on the challenge and to help them cope with the discomfort they experienced.

Thankfully, that pain and difficulty no longer is required. Saying the special sentences that focus on the cause of your discomfort is easy to do, and the discomfort is often minimal or non-existent.

This paragraph is a comment I wrote about a passage on page 60-61 of Letting It Go: Relieve Anxiety and Toxic Stress in Just a Few Minutes Using Only Words (Rapid Relief with Logosynthesis®.)
