Numbers and Communication
Numbers resonate with the mind in a greater way than you might imagine. In the movie “What The Bleep Do We Know” they refer to the processing capacity of the brain. It processes over 4,000,000,000 bits of information per second, yes that is FOUR BILLION PER SECOND. You are AWARE of only 2,000. Which do you want working for you consciously? What you be the effect on you if you were aware of significantly more that 2,000? Could you train your subconscious to process even more and make you aware of the result?
In your resume, which I recommend you change the name to background, put in more numbers. The amazing part is that it does not even make any difference what kind of numbers they are. It does not have to be GREAT accomplishments. I supervised 10 people supporting a $6,000,000 budget.
In listening, begin to be aware of this and choose which numbers to question. The President recently said that oil production had gone up on his watch. He used numbers to illustrate the point. He was telling the TRUTH and LYING at the same time. Oil production on federally controlled acreage has gone DOWN however oil production on acreage not controlled by his administration has gone UP. The net total of UP and DOWN was positive and was the overall premise he wanted to take credit for in my opinion.
Shortly after that he said his administration could do nothing about gas prices because it was already drilling on 75 % of the available land. Again telling the TRUTH and LYING at the same time. He did not define LAND or AVAILABLE. His numbers did not include anything on or in WATER nor did his numbers include any of the LAND his administration has made UNAVAILABLE. The normal mind is drawn to the numbers.
So my guess is that 90% of the people who read this will get it immediately and less that 5% will look on and of those who do look intently, 51% of them will find something they feel compelled to purchase and 100% of them will be delighted.
