Brighter or Dimmer picture

Standard

How often have you heard the phrase, “She has a brightfuture” or, “He has a colorful past”? Expressions like these are more than metaphors. They are precise descriptions of the speaker’s internal thinking, and these descriptions are the key to learning how to change your own experience in useful ways. For instance, right now notice how you picture a pleasant future event in your own life . . . and then brighten that picture and notice how your feelings change. When you brighten that picture, do you “look forward” to it more? Most people respond more strongly to a brighter picture; a few respond more to a dimmer picture.

And the picture matters a lot, which side of wall you suppose to watch, one side calls to opportunities and the other one the empty.
