Controlling The Outcome
What we naturally want in life
Is to follow someone who is intentionally successful
But for anyone to tell us
That we can do something that we have no inkling of trying
Then they are using the power of manipulative persuasion

This skewed perception of reality
Leads us to believe that we can be like everyone else
When in fact we as just as happy with being our self
The most powerful persuader is the mind reader
Who can teach people what they already want to know
By pointing out different things in what they see

You can brainwash anyone into thinking they are valuable
Just by how you present them to be

Here’s a prime example
Ask someone what does S.P.O.T. spell?
And they will answer “spot”
Then ask them, “what do you do when you come to a green light?”
The majority will invariably tell you “stop” rather than “go”

This is interesting and true, kinda' made think about my own poetry writing style! hmmm.. ARt, I'm wondering if I should be the one trying to pass on Faith and Hope to others! I never want it to look like Persuasion, or manipulation! I had enough of that in my life and I wish it on NOONE!
This was an eye opener for me!
Your expressions made me THINK! Thank You for sharing openely!
