At last you can get ten out of ten. Most people learn the material for an exam or presentation and yet still have to hope that they can deliver, on the day. This is because their minds are hardly their own. Information, that you have gathered on purpose and committed to memory intentionally, is often hidden immediately by unconscious information. It is completely impossible to stay present - cool, calm and collected - as your thoughts proceed mercilessly to ideas like ‘I never remember anything under pressure’. ‘If I mess this up, I won’t get the job.’ ‘I didn’t do enough preparation’. Until you get yourself clear, you can only be run by these old programmes. They are fear of failure, fear of not being good enough and even more annoying ones, like fear of success and fear of loss of identity. You would be amazed how many people do not get promotions or management roles simply because it does not fit with their own underdog image of themselves. Your unconscious mind cannot let it happen and inevitably the sabotage and distractions begin, to make sure you get nowhere. If you would like to break out of this box or teach your children how to think, so they can trust themselves to achieve what they set out for, that is totally possible.
