Counter Productive Speech Patterns – Failure Forecasting

Think about how often you hear people say, “You probably won’t like this, or this probably won’t work.” When people say that to me, then I usually say, “you’re right, I absolutely dislike this.”  When you failure forecast you are helping people to conclude that failure is on the horizon.  So replace it with success forecasting.   Change your words to “you are probably going to like this a lot.”  When you do that, when you intend on success, then you are leading people to that result and you are more persuasive.
