Yes, you can go into a future situation with different attitudes and perceptions.
You can go to a dental appointment with the view that “It will very uncomfortable and that you will dread the shot and the drilling while imagining the smoke billowing from your mouth as the Doctor hits a nerve.”
OR you can imagine that ” I can’t wait to see my dentist again because I always get a new toothbrush and some floss and that you haven’t had your teeth drilled in a long time and that you are really excited to get the work done to keep your oral hygiene the best it can be…and the smoke from the drilling has a unique smell that you can’t get anywhere else.”
Just – Spin it and Win it – Before it happens.
