Perception is a powerful component in your ability to succeed or fail. The type of perceiving that I am speaking of is not the physical form. I am not speaking about Depth perception or visual perception. I am speaking about psychological perception. I am speaking about what is known as “Passive Perception.”

This form of perception creates your life and directs your actions in life. Perception can create hell or heaven. Perception directs so many areas of your life that to not understand perception can be harmful to your dreams, goals, self-esteem and confidence.

Learning how to harness the power of perception is one of the fundamentals in the science of results oriented thinking. In this form of perceiving you must understand the sequence of events that perception follows. First, you look at your surroundings and your senses come alive. Second, your brain begins processing the surroundings. Third, you have an output or your re-action.

For example, you are at a grocery store, you look at your surroundings, your senses come alive, your brain notices you are at the grocery store and your reaction may be to get a shopping cart to begin shopping. This is a basic look at the power of perception.

However, where perception can trip you up and sabotage you and your life is in a more subtle way. For instance, first, your brain notices its surroundings (in this case a freeway you are driving and you notice a car cuts you off.) Second, your brain processes the surroundings, (you decide to hit the brake and slow down.) Third, you have an output or reaction. (You hit the brake and slow the car down and say to yourself, “That guy wasn’t even looking.” You say that quietly to yourself first, then you may say it out loud to the people riding in the car with you. “Hey, did you see that guy, he wasn’t even looking?)

In the science of results oriented thinking, perception has a fourth step to it that is the most important step. The sequence looks like this. First, your senses notice its surroundings. Second, your brain begins processing its surroundings. Third, your brain starts talking to you, making decisions and judgments. Fourth, you have a reaction. In the science of results oriented thinking we notice that the reaction you are having is a result of what it is you are telling yourself in the perception process.

In the science of results oriented thinking we do not blame the situation for creating our reaction. We use self-command and realize our reaction is coming from what we are telling ourselves in each and every moment. Self-command is a response ability that allows you to command your mind instead of letting your mind follow an old reaction. We do this by becoming aware of what it is we are saying to ourselves.

In the last example we look at step number 3 because in the science of results oriented thinking, we notice a chemical reaction happens after we say something to our self. Now, depending on what you are saying to yourself you can be impairing yourself or empowering yourself. Self-command is the ability to observe the self and decide what you want to do. Do you want to impair or empower you?

Dr. Masaru Emoto showed us that water can carry "thought exposures" or messages that help your body become healthy or sick. These thought exposures are what you tell yourself on a daily basis and is nothing more than a habit.

You are not the daily habit you have. You are much more than that. However, that daily habit can be keeping you sick, lost, medicated and unable to fulfill your dreams simply because you are poisoning your body and mind with unhealthy thoughts that produce unhealthy chemical cocktails and are impairing your abilities.

Every time you tell yourself something negative, your brain cooperates with you and sends a "negative" chemical cocktail to your brain and body so you can feel the negativity in the thought you just exposed yourself to. Thoughts are nothing more than a habit you learned as a child, of a way to perceive the world. It does not make the thought true, correct or beneficial to you. It is simply a biological process.

Your body hears everything that you say and it obeys the attitude that you tell it to have. If you say, "that makes me angry," your body says "okay" and makes you an angry chemical cocktail and pours it into your systems and now you feel angry.

In the science of results oriented thinking we observe our habits and learn other thinking processes, such as power thinking or explorative thinking. We utilize the part of our thought to harness the power of our perception to bring us a life by design and fulfillment. Learning the science of results oriented thinking, self command and healthy thinking habits will change your life now.
