Why should someone grant you something you desire of them if you yourself do not think you deserve it? People give to those who are emotionally and mentally ready to receive. The mindset of receptivity is something that can be cultivated and expanded upon to an unlimited degree. You are the window through which others can glimpse a future they want to be part of.

Embody your the future you want solidly in your own mind, because with a compelling enough vision you can persuade anyone, regardless of their previous outlook.

The way you feel about yourself will ultimately determine how others treat you. They will subconsciously sense what you feel worthy of.

Invariably, people will play the same role even if they move from one set of peers to another. They find themselves inhabiting the same status and the same role as in their previous clique. Even though this new group may not know them at all, they can nonetheless feel the inner status in their psychology.

If they change their inner status that will be their new standard. If you begin to truly appreciate yourself and who you are as a person, people in your life will reflect that. This change will be a lifelong transformation that you can keep with you always.

The inner status of receiving is a process that is cultivated from positive emotions towards self. It’s increasing your inner worthiness to a feeling of deserving anything you desire.

How does one cultivate this coveted inner status of receiving? The answer lies in forming positive emotions toward self. This act will enhance your inner worthiness and allow you to feel deserving of anything and everything you desire with an open and sincere heart.

“You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection” – Buddha

You begin this process by guiding yourself into a very positive state and confirming your inner worthiness. Through repetition of self-affirming self-talk, you begin to push a boulder over the critical tipping point.

You can make yourself a sentry at the gate of your mind allowing in only thoughts that reinforce positive ideals of self. The definitions and labels you have placed on yourself regarding your self-worth will come at you from all angles.

Because of this, instead of solely aiming to eliminate the old ones, you must replace them with empowering ones. Affirm your confidence and understand that you are worthy of what you want. You deserve to have the most phenomenal life possible.

Change How You Feel, Change Your Relationship

Positive emotions elicit positive responses. The greatest influence you have on any relationship is about how you feel about the other person. Relationships including friendships, family, and business associates are not based on logic, they are based on emotions.

When you love, appreciate and admire people, because they can feel it. There is a natural drawing together; a certain magnetic chemistry that happens. By sitting down and deliberately searching for aspects to appreciate, you can dramatically change any relationship for the better.

You can draw out completely different characteristics than those that you have previously been observing. In addition, reinforce and expand upon ones that are already meaningful and most appreciated. You can create deep rapport with people important to you, business or personal.

The key is picturing the relationship as you would prefer it, and as though the outcome is already in hand. The goal is to condition yourself into the feeling state where you are ready to receive your desired outcome.

You can create a list of positive characteristics that you can appreciate about that person, and in time diminish the negative characteristics, thereby tipping the balance toward goodness, gratitude, and benevolence.

“My most brilliant achievement was my ability to be able to persuade my wife to marry me.” – Winston Churchill

Envision the outcome the way you desire it to be, but also actively live in the emotional state of that which is desired. The emotions will thereby become established solidly within you and the effect on all aspects of this relationship will prove profound. By delving deep into yourself and finding your sense of self-worthiness along with encouraging others to do the same, you will see them respond immediately.

Persuasion is about changing the emotional response from another party. Creating a strong positive emotional state will inspire people to continuously give back. Others will readily take cues from you when you start to believe that you are worthy and deserving.

It is human nature to gravitate toward what feels constructive or affirmatory and away from what feels damaging.

If you make it a habit to consistently instill positive emotions in another, that person will have a great positive association with you.

The most powerful tool you have at your disposal is your own positive mindset which encompasses encouraging words and the radiation of good vibes. When you appreciate someone over a short time, they will be influenced to appreciate you.

People will give back in a similar quantity to that which you are willing to give them. This is the secret of persuasion.
