How Are You Feeling? Its More Of A Brain Question Than You Think


How you respond to How are You reveals a great deal about you.

"Hi! How are you?"


"Not bad, you?"

How many times have you started a conversation this way? I'll bet you do it nearly every time you say hello. We have been trained to the cultural activity of inquiring of our friends and acquaintances well being, even if we don't really care. It's the civil thing to do. But I'm going to focus on your response to this ubiquitous question.

Last month I introduced the PINT concept (Put It iN Thought), now I'm going to expand this concept to how it can begin to really make a change in your daily life. If you remember, PINT makes thoughts reality. When we extend what we say as the reflection of what we are thinking PINT becomes our reality.

Now if I respond to the ever present "how are you?" question with something like "OK, I guess" then I am reflecting indecision or even negative thoughts about how I feel or even who I think I am. If I respond with "Man, my shoulder is really killing me this morning. I must have slept on it wrong again." Then I am letting my physical condition rule my mental condition. Hurt and pain are negative impulses made to inform us of a dangerous or inappropriate activity. It is negative response to a negative activity. You body is saying 'Quit that, it hurts!'

I'm going out on a limb here for a bunch of you, but I have proven this over and over again in my own life. Over the past two years I have purposefully changed how I respond to this simple question. I always answer with a positive. I'm not just great, I'm Fantastic, Happy, Gigantic or even Awesome. You see when I overcome the physical and emotional aches and pains with a positive response I begin to feel better. It's just putting PINT into practice. Thoughts become reality after all. Your non-conscious brain doesn't know the difference.

A successful real state sales friend of mine used to tell me "Andrew, fake it until you make it." He was right. If I tell myself I'm OK, I'll begin to believe it and eventually my body will begin to agree. Now you probably think "That Andrew he's pulling my leg." But why should I? I don't have anything to gain by telling you something that isn't true. Napoleon Hill, Tony Robbins, Wayne Dyer and Norman Vincent Peale all agree on one thing - Attitude is Everything. Did you ever notice if you believe something is going to happen, it usually does. Did you ever wonder why? Pretty simple - PINT.

I want to challenge you to do something this month. I want you to get up every morning and declare to yourself that you are going to be Fantastic, Happy, Awesome, Glad, Joyful, Handsome or Beautiful and Enthusiastic. That's seven, one for each day. Make up a card and keep it with you all day long. Put it on the dash of the car and look at it as you drive to and from work each day. If you forget, don't panic, just pick up with the next word and keep going. You should go through the list at least four times during the month. Next month I'll have seven new words for you to expand your vocabulary of thoughts.

Let's Get Started!
