Sedona, AZ (PRWEB) April 12, 2007
Hale Dwoskin, founder of The Sedona Method and a featured teacher in the #1 blockbuster bestselling book and movie by the same name, "The Secret," has announced he is now giving away Sedona course samplers so people can discover how to finally let go of the negative emotions holding them back from success and harness the power of creating happing endings in everything they pursue.
"Experiences in life are always better if they have a happy ending," says Hale. "No matter what the event - from a medical procedure to a boring seminar that you have to attend - you will look back on it more fondly if the ending was good (or even slightly less bad than the rest of it). Why is this so?"
When remembering things, says Hale, your memory doesn't always get things quite right. "It forgets bad memories faster than it does good ones, and, when it comes to unpleasant experiences, it will do you a favor, allowing you to look back more fondly on them as long at the last part was happy."
Take, for example, the colonoscopy - clearly not a pleasant procedure by most people's standards. Yet a study by University of Toronto researchers found that people who underwent a longer colonoscopy - but with a less painful ending -- reported that it was less aversive and that they were more likely to return for a repeat colonoscopy than people whose procedure was shorter but more painful at the end.
A separate study, aptly titled "When More Pain is Preferred to Less: Adding a Better End," found similar results. Study participants were asked to immerse one hand in very cold water for two trials, one short, the other long. During the long trial, however, the water was warmed during the last 30 seconds, not to a comfortable temperature but enough to be noticeably warmer.
When the participants were asked which trial they'd choose to repeat, the majority chose the longer trial. The results show that people's evaluations of bad experiences are often dominated by discomfort during the worst and the final moments of the episode.
Now to Create Happy Endings in Anything You Do
"The take-home message," says Hale Dwoskin, "is to strive to create a happy ending in everything you do, especially for those things you don't necessarily love to do." A few examples of doing this include:
- After a tough workout, take a relaxing dip in a hot-tub or spend a few minutes in the sauna.
- After creating your budget or doing your taxes, take an hour or two to read a book, watch a movie, or take a walk outside
- After spring cleaning your home, invite a couple of friends over for a "girls/guys night."
- After a visit to the dentist (or other appointment you weren't looking forward to), reward yourself with a bouquet of flowers or a new CD you've been wanting.
For most people, though, there are emotional issues that may be blocking them from allowing themselves to create happy endings - and therefore happier lives. That is why Hale is now giving away Sedona course samplers to anyone who visits his website.
The Sedona Method -- which has been studied and verified effective by Harvard Medical School -- is an essential tool to help people release negative behavior patterns and unresolved emotions preventing them from creating happy endings (and happy starts and middles!) in their pursuits.
