Oddly the very things that I perk up and quickly retain are things I didn’t even know I wanted or needed to hear. Let’s call it Power of Suggestion, typically found during the course of casual conversation. Naturally it’s when friends or family are discussing their own challenges, struggles and successes when a wave of realization hits me. I needed to hear this – it actually applies to me too.
Then another realization hits me – if these same people had told me directly that I need to do this or that perhaps I would not have been as receptive.
Suggestion is powerful, agreed?
