Just had time to re read some of That Winning feeling by Jane Savoie and came across a bit I'd forgotten about. Apparently our brain can't distinguish between what is real or imaginary in our memory which could explain why sometimes 2 people will remember the same event totally differently. Also our subconcious will strive to make our thoughts a reality so that if you think that you are having a bad day some how it will conspire to ensure that you do.
It also remembers all those comments we make about ourselves like the one I made today that Rhyme would do better will another handler. Shock horror what an awful thing to say. I would be very disappointed in any of my students if they said that.
Sometimes it's is a reflex dismissal because I don't know how to applaud myself. What I should have said was thank you he's a brilliant dog and together we'll do well :)
Now I need to convince my subconscious mind that it's not what I said but what I meant that matters and focus on helping that come true :)
So remember positive thinking is the way forward and practice saying the right things to get your subconscious mind to help you achieve :)
