An Incredible New Weight Loss Product: Your Brain!

[ad_1]

I would like to introduce you to an incredible new weight loss product: Your brain…

 

A Bit of History

I discovered a very unique mental technique for weight loss many, many years ago from a great New Thought teacher, Dr. Joseph Murphy. When I posted it on my business forum a few years ago, members publicly thanked me for their weight loss a short time later.

In 2005, I decided to conduct a formal test of the technique with a group of volunteer participants to prove the effectiveness of this method, which had not been revealed to the mainstream, for the purpose of potentially adding it to my library of prosperity programs. But first, I wanted to see enough positive results from the general public to support it.

I added my own enhancements to the technique based on my extensive knowledge of the subconscious mind and the results from that challenge proved the value of the process. The experience supported my conviction that to achieve success in any area of our life, we must first create the inner foundation – the mindset. Our bodies are the mirror of our mental, emotional and spiritual states. And the good news is that we can change that reflection!

I believe that whether most people realize it or not, there is a profound hunger for this knowledge (okay, pun possibly intended) – the missing link and shift in consciousness that will produce fast solutions in all areas of life, including what I refer to as “body prosperity.” Everyone is focusing on the outer solutions without attending to that vitally important foundation that will ensure their progress and results – the inner solution.

 

And Current Views

Using mental laws, you can lose weight in a natural, effortless way – by gently shifting the dominant thought in your subconscious mind and no longer thinking of yourself as having to lose weight. You change the focus of your consciousness to what you do want instead of what you don’t want. As long as you keep thinking of what you don’t want, you will continue to manifest more of what you don’t want. That is the nature of the subconscious mind and the foundation of mental law.

You must eliminate any belief in being a “dieter” or having to “lose weight” and instead create a new dominant thought in the mind of a fit, healthy body. Your subconscious mind will accept your new belief and will compulsively guide you to do everything necessary to accomplish that result.

A sculptor does not think at all about chipping away at stone or marble or clay… I believe he (or she) sees in the mind’s eye the image of what they want to create – the vision of the end result. And that’s what you are going to be doing with your body. You will no longer be concentrating on “chipping away” anything. You will be focused on the desired result. You will be creating the body that you want instead of bemoaning the body that you don’t want.

You may have to lose a large amount of weight or perhaps you need to lose minimally. You are not alone in any category and many others share your challenge. That’s what makes this process so interesting. A great teacher once said, “The law is no respecter of persons.” This means that the mental and spiritual laws work the same for everyone, no matter who you are and what your situation is. We are all made of the same mind stuff and spirit. Just as gravity will work for all alike, so will these mental laws, if you align yourself with them.

By instilling new seed thoughts in the subconscious, you will be creating a new set of core beliefs, and those beliefs will in turn create healing and a new physical condition.

 

Magic Pill

What is fascinating is that there is an ever-increasing number of diet books on the market, there is more knowledge available to us than ever before about nutrition and health, there are probably more gyms and fitness centers in our nation than at any other time. Yet our nation is “fatter” than it has ever been (and we need to stop blaming it all on sitting at computers).

The proliferation of weight loss programs and equipment marketed on the Internet, in all traditional media, and specifically on television, speaks volumes to the public’s search for a new and better magic pill.

Something does not make sense here. My opinion is that we are attempting to solve the problem from the outside when what we really need to do is establish a foundation on the inside as well.

All of the books, knowledge, diets and equipment in the world will not result in your “body” prosperity unless you first have the mindset for a fit, healthy body. Only then will those other tools help you. If you don’t have the mindset, then you will automatically keep reverting back to the tangible evidence of your core belief. Thus, the all too familiar “yo-yo.”

Applying the laws of mind and spirit is the closest thing you will ever find to a magic pill – it addresses the problem and provides the solution at the core level of belief which is the foundation for anything that we wish to create in life. And what is unique and refreshing is that this process does not promote any specific diet or exercise – you make the conscious effort to do your part and your subconscious mind will do the rest. Any changes in your habits or routine will be inspired from the inside out…naturally…not from will power or forced action.

The whole point of subconscious conditioning is to bring our consciousness to the point of acceptance that we already are where we want to be. Then the subconscious is compulsive and will intuitively guide us to the right foods, exercise, or whatever it takes to fulfill that vision. But we must instill the right message in our mind at the core level.

Using mental techniques does not “replace” healthy eating habits. It creates them! That’s the whole idea. The subconscious is the seat of habit. And of intuition. With the right mindset, your habits will become just that – healthy habits – instead of the compulsively unhealthy ones.

If your weight situation is not the result of wrong eating habits, then your subconscious knows the answer and is capable of creating the adjustments that are necessary for you to achieve your goals. There is that Universal Storehouse of Knowledge that is All Wisdom and knows all answers – all we need to do is tell it what we want by aligning ourselves with the laws – and it knows how to get us there.

So again, we use our minds to accept the idea, thought and picture of a fit, healthy person at his/her ideal weight. Once that idea is instilled in the mind, you will automatically be guided and directed to all that is necessary for you to fulfill that vision. You will intuitively want the right foods and pass on the wrong ones. You will adopt the proper exercise habits. You will be guided to the right coach or nutritional information to manifest your subconscious idea. It must happen because that is the law – the nature of mind. Mind will always create according to the seed thought.

 

When the imagination and the will are in conflict, the imagination always wins. – Emile Coue

 

Mindset of Being a ‘Dieter’

Here is something that I want you to think about carefully. I want you to consider this and keep considering it until you grasp it fully. It will be a very important factor in your solution.

If you have the mindset of being a dieter, of having to lose weight, if that is what you consistently feel like, then your subconscious keeps adjusting your habits to conform to that idea. It keeps you being “a dieter” or “on a diet.”. The subconscious does not think or reason, it just takes orders. Those orders are your thoughts and feelings.

In other words, when you do manage to lose some weight, your core belief of being a dieter will have you gain weight again so that you can continue being a dieter because that is what your subconscious mind thinks you are and thinks you want.

When you are constantly criticizing and condemning your body for its weight, you are reinforcing the very thing you don’t want. Your mind will perpetuate the condition because your mind thinks that’s what you want.

Do you get this?

You now have conflict between what you desire on a conscious level and what your subconscious mind thinks you want – opposing ideas. That great teacher Dr. Murphy said that if you tell a taxi driver to go to two different addresses, you will never get to your destination.

 

Am I qualified to make such claims about this mental process? I will let you decide. But the photos of me that appear online were taken within the past couple of years and with minor fluctuation, I have maintained this body for most of my life. I am healthy, trim, fit and look 20 years younger than my years. However, I come from a “fat” family. My mother wasn’t just overweight…she was obese, and when she died in the 80s, she was younger than I am now. My younger sister is gone too. But don’t think I can’t gain weight easily. Oh, yes I can, but my mind won’t let me. I have mentally conditioned my subconscious to it to never let me go beyond a specific weight and to keep me fit and healthy. I don’t think about what I have to do to maintain it, my mind does it for me – I lift weights, I eat healthy foods and I can indulge in fattening foods sporadically without repercussions. Automatic pilot. Will the mental technique work for you? I say…what have you got to LOSE? Body back guarantee.

Forget the word “diet.” This is the natural way we are created to use our minds – constructively and in alignment with Universal laws.

 

Footnote

As a teacher of mental and spiritual laws, I learned these universal laws and prosperity principles from the most brilliant New Thought teachers, far ahead of their time. It is time for this valuable esoteric knowledge to become more mainstream. Are you ready to become your own case study?

The Internet and Social Media: A Curse On Our Kids? Not If They Are Caregiving Kids

[ad_1]

“Things are seldom what they seem.”

(William S. Gilbert, 1836-1911)

Nearly twenty-five years have passed since I was first introduced to Sir William’s cautionary and somewhat wistful quote. Although I learned of it early in my graduate study of the mass media, it remains one of the most pertinent pieces of wisdom I’ve ever encountered, often in ways I hadn’t anticipated. Here’s a telling example, starting with the back-story:

As the decade of the 80’s came to a close, a scholarly debate raged across University Schools of Communication. Today the topic seems almost quaint: My professors, a generation of social scientists informed by the written word (i.e., newspapers), was doing it’s level best to convince students raised on – and by – television that there was more to the “Big Picture” than what we were watching on the “small screen”. Of course, in the strictest sense, they were right. For many reasons, televised depictions paint the world around us in quick, broad, stereotypical strokes, bereft of almost any measured, in-depth, analysis. But what stuck with me most was the clear sense that these learned, “older” men and women didn’t quite like the way my generation and the media were headed. Of course, all of this was well before cable and satellite television had penetrated nearly 90% of American homes, a time when personal computers and “mobile” phones were little more than a novelty, years before the Internet truly enveloped the globe, and just about the time Mark Zuckerberg, inventor of Facebook, was completing the first grade.

Fast-forward to the present, and the irony makes me cringe: Two decades into a career as a television producer, erstwhile writer, and public relations professional, I slowly find myself “not quite liking the direction in which things are headed”, particularly with regard to the nation’s youth and their strong affinity for social media. Despite my best efforts to refrain from the same form of “generationalism” I perceived among my professors all those years ago, I can’t help but wonder – much as they must have: “What’s with young people these days?” As an example, I’ve observed that my ten-year-old nephew would rather game remotely with some faceless kid halfway across the country than go outside and play stickball with the neighborhood kids, most of whom, no doubt, are engaged in some form of digital diversion of their own!

Of course it’s not just kids who seem to have been swept away by the technological tsunami. Careful not to ask a digital native who Norman Rockwell was, but were he to capture a portrait of the American household today, it might not seem so idyllic: Here’s Junior texting a friend at the dinner table, little Missy dying to get back to her Facebook, and oh yes, Mom too, with one eye on a TiVo’d soap opera or Dad last to the table, checking online, one last time, the value of his stock portfolio. We rightly can and should bemoan such a phenomenon, a family physically under the same roof, yet miles away from any true, human, face-to-face interaction.

Recently however, I’ve learned of a very special group of young people for whom I cannot begrudge the Internet, or Facebook, or any of the other myriad forms of electronic communication. In their particular case, I’ve been reminded that “things are certainly not as they might seem.”

The truth is, even the aforementioned portrait of the American family, troubling as it may seem, is something of a fantasy. Hard economic times, broken homes, latchkey kids…one struggles to conceive of an “average” American family in this day and age. The situation becomes infinitely more complex, in even the “healthiest” home, when a not-so-healthy family member is added to the mix.

For the last seven months, I’ve had the privilege of volunteering with The American Association of Caregiving Youth (AACY) in an outreach/media relations capacity. Unfortunately, if you haven’t heard of AACY, you are not alone. Not only is this modest, upstart organization the only one of its kind in the U.S., the children for whom it advocates bear no obvious, outward signs of the challenges they face. They come every race, every ethnicity, and every socio-economic stratum. Yet with regard to the public discourse on healthcare, they remain largely voiceless. How else could more than 1.4 million American kids, ages eight to eighteen, caring for chronically ill, injured, disabled, or aged family members go unnoticed? These are not simply kids helping with chores, or cooking and cleaning, but children administering medications, constantly monitoring a loved ones health, sometimes even acting as breadwinners…at the expense of their educations, their social selves, and often their own health.

AACY’s Boca Raton, FL-based model program, the Caregiving Youth Project (CYP), provides a variety of services in school, out of school and at home to help and support student caregivers in the state’s third most populous county. Working in partnership with the School District of Palm Beach County, the CYP currently serves nearly 400 caregiving youth and their families in 8 area middle schools and 17 high schools: a promising start, but modest in the face of an estimated 10,000 youth caregivers countywide. Services provided by the CYP include those one might commonly associate with a charitable, human services organization: home visits, tutoring, skills building, group activities, respite services, etc. I was on-board with all of these although “not so much” when informed by AACY’s founder and President, Dr. Connie Siskowski, of one of the organization’s crowning achievements: the acquisition of computers, printers, supplies, and yes – the bane of our existence – a year of Internet service for seventy-five of the organization’s most affected students.

No doubt, a donation valued at $100,000 in today’s lean economy is a generous and laudable act. But some part of me couldn’t help but wonder if the donor, AT&T, and the fiscal agent, the Palm Beach County Education Commission, hadn’t somehow got it wrong. Quietly, I wondered, “Wouldn’t that money have been better spent somewhere else?” As Dr. Siskowski explained how the challenge had presently become maintaining Internet service beyond the underwritten year, my mind went somewhere else immediately. I envisioned a group of already socially challenged kids retreating to their rooms, ignoring their daunting responsibilities and spending endless hours on Facebook. As it turns out, nothing could be farther from the truth.

Yes, Dr. Siskowski assured me, caregiving kids in the CYP do engage Facebook, sometimes heavily. And why wouldn’t they? After all, these are kids who, because of their adult-size responsibilities, cannot engage in after-school activities with their peers, can’t play sports or join clubs, often hurrying home immediately after the final bell to care for a family member. Perhaps the single psychosocial consequence most consistently articulated by caregiving kids in the program is the feeling of being utterly alone in their responsibilities. They feel like pariahs, ashamed of their predicament and unaware of its prevalence. Facebooking other caregiving kids helps dispel that erroneous and damaging notion, provides them the means for much needed interaction – indeed, any interaction with their peers – and teaches young caregivers they are part of a community.

Oh yes, and let’s remember that a child hurrying home to monitor grandma’s blood sugar can’t casually drop by the library after school to research a homework assignment. If that child is economically disadvantaged, as are many of the CYP’s kids, the assignment may never be completed. Home computers and Internet service are beyond the economic means of many of AACY’s kids, even in Palm Beach County, an ostensibly affluent community which also happens to have an inordinately high number of elderly, disabled, and immigrant populations. So while many of AACY’s caregiving kids are of modest economic means, their schools do not qualify for Title One entitlements which might otherwise offer improved curriculum, instructional activities, counseling, parental involvement, or increased staff and program improvement.

Were all of this not enough, Dr. Siskowski’s internal research indicates “connected” caregiving kids routinely use the Web to find information about their care-recipients’ medical conditions and search for economically priced medication, food and other household supplies. Adults too, in these caregiving households have used their newly provided connectivity to find community resources or employment. And AACY itself sees its own monthly e-newsletter “Treasure Talk” and its websites, as an integral means of communicating with its dual role youth. The sites provide information on and for youth caregivers, forums for youth, family and professionals, and information about medical conditions and community resources.

Once again, I’ve been reminded, “things are seldom what they seem.” As many of us often do, a preconceived set of notions about a complex cultural phenomenon prevented me from seeing a highly relevant truth about technology and kids today. Far from a curse, at least with regard to the unique case of student caregivers and their families, connectivity must be considered a blessing. Let caregiving kids have their Facebook; let them also have a chance to overcome their loneliness and social isolation, perform in school, better care for their chronically infirm loved ones; and while we’re at it, let’s give adults in the household a chance to get ahead as well. Maybe its time we gave them not only our blessing…but also, our support.

The Importance of Using Marketing Strategies

[ad_1]

Whether you are in a small, medium or large business, you’d do well with a marketing strategy. Companies that want to excel in today’s competitive economy require not just any marketing strategy but the best they can find, whether in-house, customized or out-sourced.

There are many types of strategies to promote your company products or services. There are simple or sophisticated strategies which have been proven, and can be easily applied to most organizations.

Campaigns are different from strategies; a marketing strategy is an approach to market or promote the business products or services to confirm transactions that will keep the company viable. It can also be called a plan which is used to give the company an added advantage or project a more attractive image to its intended buyers of its products or services.

Purpose of Marketing Strategy

A strategy must bring in the sales when implemented; otherwise, it is a failed strategy. Time, effort and money are wasted which are considered losses to the company. Different strategies are employed not only for the different products and services of the company, but also target at different market segment or users. Hence, it is important to identify what the focus of your strategy is.

Marketing strategies Media

Some marketing strategies include print campaigns like advertisements in the newspaper or billboards. These are meant to instill awareness of the company’s products and services to a larger audience. Nowadays, the Internet provides a most conducive platform as part of the company’s strategies. Some companies may choose the television or radio media to execute their strategies if they are focusing on certain types of audience for their goods and services. For example, companies which manufacture household products may choose to market their products through the television medium as a commercial which targets housewives.

Factors involved in Marketing Strategies

Whichever strategy you may choose for your company’s products or services, you will need to consider the item to be promoted, the targeted audience or buyer, the duration of the strategy, the budget and the expected results. At times the company may be able to use a strategy for several of its products and services while at other times, not.

There must be a specific audience identified to that chosen item to be promoted so that, that specific category of buyers will be tuned in on the promotion. A marketing strategy cannot go on and on as the target audience may feel bored with it or develop negative feelings or opinions about the company’s status.

There must be a budget to work on a specific strategy for a specific product or service identified for promotion as there may be other products and services which will demand the same attention and priority for good sales. A specific budget is also necessary to ensure that the strategy does not exceed the expected expenses to promote the identified product as the bottom line is to recoup these expenses and more.

Hence, the most important aspect of a marketing strategy is the expected results. The strategy employed should bring in more revenue to the company which covers the expenses expended on that particular product or service.

The Importance of Voice Overs

[ad_1]

Everyone has heard a voiceover at one time or another. From the voice of Mickey Mouse, to the voice that sells you shampoo or insurance on the radio, voiceovers provide an effective way to evoke emotion or get important information across to an audience. In fact, without voiceover, media wouldn’t have the same impact and the entertainment industry would be at a great loss. The importance of voiceover can be seen every day in a variety of techniques.

What is Voiceover?

Voiceover is a production technique where a voice that is not part of the production is used to speak a particular part. Voiceovers are common in radio, television, film and even theatre. Often, voice actors are hired specifically to perform voiceovers and have no other role in the production.

Techniques

Character Voices

One of the more popular uses for voiceover is to give a voice or a personality to an animated character. Think about Shrek or any other popular Disney Movie. Each character is actually someone behind the scenes with a microphone making the voice come alive. As animated movies are growing in popularity, well known celebrities are looking for voiceover roles, hoping to add a bit of variety to their acting portfolio.

Movie Narration

Another popular use for voiceover is providing narration to a movie. This type of voiceover is so common in movies, you probably don’t even realize it’s happening. Generally, the narrator in a movie has intimate details about the characters on the screen and provides insight for the audience as to their thoughts or emotions. In this sense, voiceover is a critical part of many movies and is necessary for keeping the audience informed. Blockbuster hit movies like Fight Club and Shawshank Redemption use voiceover to provide context.

News Reporting and Non-Fiction Television

Often voiceover is used to report the news. In fact, most television news broadcasts use voiceover as much as live anchors to report news that was taped earlier or segments that were edited beforehand. Other non fiction television that relies on voiceover includes media like the History Channel or the Discovery Channel. Particularly where the focus is educational, voiceover provides a guide for viewers to understand what they are seeing. In addition, game shows have been using voiceover for decades to announce contestants and prizes. Almost everyone is familiar with the popular voiceover from the 1970’s who exclaimed “come on down, you’re the next contestant on the Price is Right!”.

Commercial Advertising

Advertising is another very common use for voiceover. In fact, radio is completely voiceover and actors are never seen. In fact, voiceover is so useful for radio advertisement that certain product manufacturers have signed long term contracts with voiceover actors to “brand” their products. When consumers hear the same, familiar voice representing a product, it builds instant trust and credibility. Even on television, where actors can be seen, it is more likely that a product is featured with voiceover and without an actor. Besides, a strong voiceover highlights the sale instead of the actor seen with the product.

Voiceover is an important part of our movie and television experience. In many cases, voiceover represents more than just information, but has become part of a product, building trust and credibility with consumers.

Beginners Guide to Buying a New Computer

[ad_1]

With everyone being so reliant on computers to perform all sorts of tasks like, video editing, image creation, house design, data storage, emailing, social media, conferencing or even just chatting to a friend on the other side of the world, it’s important to know what type of computer and accessories you will need before you make a purchase.

So many of us are not too sure where to start, when it comes to buying a new PC. We rely either on what someone else has told us or on what the computer sales person tells us.

This article with provide you with some helpful tips on purchasing a PC and accessories that will meet your requirements and help prevent you falling prey to pushy sales people.

Misinformed

By not knowing what your computer requirements are and what you should buy, puts you at a disadvantage and at the mercy of some salespeople who just want to make a sale, regardless of whether it meets your need or not. Therefore, being none the wiser we tend to accept what we are being told as gospel, only to find out later on that we have been misinformed.

Extra Costs

You hear stories of people who have just bought a computer based on someone’s say so, only to discover later on that they need to purchase something extra. For example, a software trial program that came with the PC needs to be purchased because the trail version has expired.

Trial versions usually last for 60 days after which you need to purchase a license to continue to use it. Most first PC buyers are not told that they will need to purchase a software license when the trials run out. MS Office and Antivirus trial software are usually the two main programs that come already installed on a new PC.

As a side note, you can save some money by downloading a free MS Office look-alike program such as OpenOffice that does all that MS Office does and downloading a free antivirus program, such as AVG.

I recommend that you purchase a retail version of an antivirus program that includes a firewall. The firewall helps protect your computer from hackers and programs that try to gain access to your computer while connected to the internet. A firewall acts like a security fence.

Checklist

1) Note down what you would like to be able to do with your new computer, e.g., browse the internet, send email, chat with and view live video of distant family and friends, type up letters, play homemade videos, play music, print out photos, etc.

2) Ask family or friends to see if anyone can recommend a good computer store or a good brand of PC they have personally used and have had a good run from.

3) If you have a computer savvy friend ask them to accompany you to help you with your PC purchase.

4) Take your time; it is your money you are spending. Ask a lot of questions. Do not let any salesperson sell you what they want, but purchase what you want according to your checklist. Get them to answer your questions in non-technical language.

Be assertive but polite. If a salesperson can’t be bothered to take the time to explain things to you and answer your questions, then find another salesperson or store that will.

5) Ask what the best price is and what extras are they prepared to throw in.

Selection

Your selection criteria will be based on the following.

A quality brand, one that is well-known and has been around for a while e.g. Asus, Dell, HP or a well-known, locally assembled brand.

My recommended minimum requirements for a PC for basic usage based on current technology is as follows.

Intel I 5 2.3X GHz or I 7 2.8X GHz CPU (The speed of the processor)

750GB Hard Drive (The amount of internal storage)

4GB Ram (The amount of memory)

Graphics Card 1GB Ram

Combo CD/DVD/Blue Ray Burner

Keyboard/Mouse

Speakers

Bluetooth

Ethernet port

USB ports (at least 6)

20″ LCD Monitor PC

Windows 7 Operating system

Antivirus Software 1 year license (if possible)

One that has a warranty of 1 to 3 years, preferably 3 years. If it is not too expensive, purchase an extended warranty if the PC only comes with a 1 year warranty. Check what the warranty covers and if it comes with an on-site or return to base warranty.

An on-site warranty is where the service technician comes out to your house to service your computer. This removes the hassle of having to disconnect your computer system, and take it into the service center for service. Though it is more convenient for you to have an on-site warranty, it is not essential, just as long as you have a warranty cover of some sort.

Check if the computer repairs are performed locally or does the computer have to be sent away. If it has to be sent away, inquire as to what the repair turnaround time usually is.

It is much better to purchase a computer that has a local service center, as the repair turnaround time should be a lot shorter. It also has the advantage of you being able to deal with the service center personally if you have any issues, as opposed to dealing with a call center by phone in another part of the country or overseas.

Extras

If you want to do email, chat and view the family via the internet or printout letters, then you will need to purchase additional hardware items, such as a web camera, an inkjet or laser printer, a broadband modem and a broadband package for internet use.

Web cameras are not expensive, so purchase a good quality one. A good entry-level inkjet or laser printer these days are not expensive either, but one important thing to find out before you buy a printer is the cost of its consumables i.e. ink cartridges for the inkjet printer and the laser cartridge and drum for the laser printer. Inquire also, as to what is the average cost per page for black printing and color printing as some printer consumables are not cost-effective to use.

Setup

If you do not have anyone to help you setup your new computer, then you will have to get a PC technician to call round and setup your computer, printer, email and broadband. Before you do this though, inquire around to get the best rate and see if they can give you an estimate of the time and cost involved.

Protection

Finally, you will need to protect your new PC, printer and modem from the possibility of electrical damage by purchasing a good quality surge/spike protector.

The Psychology Of Racism

[ad_1]

The root cause of racism is hatred and antagonism against the minority. These feelings are founded on feelings of superiority by the majority. There are places in the United States where white people vacated and left blacks. They will have businesses there, work there, but they cannot live in the neighborhood. Need some proof? Go to Baton Rouge.

How brainwashing has been used to control the mind.

Brainwashing is a form of mind control which targets a person’s ability to make choices without being pressured or coerced. When a person has been brainwashed, they are denied the ability to analyze and make deductions without caring what other people tell them. In the psychology of racism, prejudiced individuals have been brainwashed to think that they are superior and some of us are here to been seen and not heard. Some blacks have also been brainwashed to believe that they are worthless.

Racism and denying yourself worth.

We have to face some facts here. Racism entails comparing and contrasting the superiority of a person or group to the inferiority of another. This is not a win-win game. One party uses the perceived inferiority of the minority to show their superiority. The accused becomes both the jury and the judge – what a twisted world! Whenever racism is introduced, you can be sure someone will lose – and it’s always the minority.

Control The Mind Control The Person.

When it comes to the psychology of racism mind control is a pillar. Mind control also known as brainsweeping or coercive persuasion involves indoctrinating people to the extent that their freedom of thought is impaired. The indoctrinated individual has no capacity to ask themselves why they do what they do. Indeed, when you control a person’s mind, you have them in your grip and they will do your bidding.

Inferiority complex and racism.

In America racism is common and come in various forms and shapes including police brutality and racial profiling among others. This has resulted to low self-esteem among the minority especially blacks. Actually, low self-esteem is the number one reason for involvement in felonies. Why? Because racism is all about real power and when one human being is denied their power, they will react to show their displeasure.

Superiority complex psychology.

It is both laughable and ridiculous to know that superiority complex is a form of defense mechanism which people employ to recompense for inferior complex. Such people believe that their value is depended on abasing and hurting others.

Assassinating a person character with racism.

The psychology of racism involves character assassination. Character assassination can be described as a premeditated and consistent process which intends to malign or mess up with the credibility of a person or group of people. People who assassinate others’ character use various methods including misleading information, abasing, defamation and manipulation. This may lead to rejection by others who may not know the real truth – does this ring a bell? Racism is powerful and will often fight back through character assassination.

Nothing is impossible. If today we are living in well built houses and not caves, if today we are using modern stoves and not firewood, if today we are walking fully dressed and not naked, nothing is impossible. One day – racism will be history.
