This simple game can help clarify and empower your thinking.
Think about something that is somewhat abstract and also important to you, good or bad. It could be a dream job. A certain way you feel before an important task. A feeling of hope or frustration. A worst case scenario. Your next home. A habit.
Do you have it in your mind?
Now, invent a name for it.
Any short name will do. The name could be descriptive, silly or serious. What's important is that in the next few days, everytime you think about this, you start using its name in your mind.
After a while, you'll start recognizing it more quickl and you may start noticing a subtle change in your thoughts.
Through more awareness and easier communication, you'll start developing a different releationship with what you have named.
