What's on Your Mind? Your questions
At the Back of My Mind - Next month's newsletter


I have started to regularly use self-hypnosis as a way to achieve my goals and... it works! Actually, it works so well that I am getting more work than I can handle (no recession for me.) This is when I have to practice saying no without feeling guilty, like you will after you have read my article! I am also learning to be very specific about what I want to attract. Yes, hypnosis is effective!
As always,, don't hesitate to drop me a line about this newsletter or the previous ones. Back issues can be found here.

Way of the Mind's Article: How to say no without feeling guilty
How to say no is something we are rarely taught to do well. Instead, we tend to use guilt and manipulation, and we never feel comfortable with our decisions. Over the years, I have researched different ways to deal with this situation and I now feel relatively at ease with my decision when I have to say no. This article is the result of this research.
When I became aware of how to say no
I once asked my friend Liza to help me prepare for an upcoming concert at our choral society. I basically knew the songs but needed to practice the difficult parts. Liza readily accepted and set a rehearsal time for the night before the concert. However, she left me the following voicemail before the rehearsal: "I would really like to help you practice but, in the meantime, I have been invited to a party. Now, I know that you are going to do very well at the concert and you only need my help to feel more comfortable. Also I would very much like to go to the party, so I hope you won't mind if I cancel our rehearsal. And again, I know you don't have to worry about your singing. You'll be fine!"
After listening to this message -- twice -- I felt... impressed! Liza was saying no, but in a manner that was so honest and so elegant that I was okay with it.
Liza was the first person who taught me how to say no without feeling guilty. Since then, I have learned a few techniques that have clarified the process for me and have made it easier to understand and to apply.

Mind Boggling
Did you know that the energy used by the brain is enough to light a 25-watt bulb and that more electrical impulses are generated in one day by a single human brain than by all the telephones in the world. Now that's a lot of energy!

Mind Games
If a printer sends me 10% more business cards that I ordered and, after a year, I have 25% left of those I had from the printer, how many did I order originally considering that I now have 275 cards left?

You will find the solution in the next issue of "With You in Mind" but you still have one month to think about it!
