HOW TO EMOTIONALIZE A CHANGE

  • What are you already emotional about?
  • You can link that by association to whatever behavior or belief that you want to have instead.
  • What are you angry about? What are you glad about? What are you sad about?
  • To emotionalize a change in behavior or belief, pick something that you already feel the way that you want to feel about that change.
  • Then you can attach those already existing feelings to your new behaviors or beliefs by associating those behaviors or thoughts with those feelings.
  • You associate through holding in mind both together long and often enough that they become paired (grouped, linked) in your mind.
