I spent many years in school yet there was very little, if any, time spent on topics that lead to true joy, abundance, and repeatable success.
For example, I didn’t learn about the power of desire, faith, and persistence. And, while I did learn how to memorize information so I could ace a test, I didn’t learn much about the principle of repetition.
You see, repetition is truly the first law of learning and it is something you can use today to make a distinct change in your life…
Think about it. Music repeated gets under your skin. Popular advertisements replay themselves when you see the commercial or the product.
Repetition reprograms your mind to accept whatever idea or image you consistently impress on it. There are several factors involved in the process, but the main idea is that repeating something provides time for the penny to drop.
What I mean by that is if you’re not familiar with an idea or it goes against what you’ve been taught, there’s a good chance you won’t accept it the first time you come across it. You might have to be exposed to it many times before you change your mind.
The principle behind repetition is that if something happens often enough, it becomes clear, understandable, and believable. And when that happens, you will ACT on it.
Change does not come from reading or memorizing good information. It comes from understanding and then applying what you’ve taken in.
So don’t just watch Bob’s video or read this post. Use what you’ve learned to make a difference in your life.
Pick any area of your life where you really want to win, and then do as Bob did in his twenties: use the principle of repetition to your advantage. Watch, read or listen to information that supports the change or lifestyle that you are imagining … every single day.
Over time, like a dripping tap that wears away stone, repeatedly exposing your mind to the new idea will give way to a new image and a new way of life. The more often you repeat it and act on it, the faster it will “get under your skin” and become a part of you.
