Some key quotes to give the sense of each chapter.
It is our intention that by the time you have read the final words
on the final page in this book you will have both the ability to perceive
multitudes of possible future for yourself,
and the necessary skills and abilities to eventually
make any one or all of those futures your reality.
We present you with the patterns we have found underlying common problems as well as the EMPRINT formats which will, if used, provide solutions to those problems ... An EMPRINT format is an arrangement of steps or procedures which , if followed, will consistently result in the same outcome. "
|" If something is possible for one person in the world, then it is possible for you -- it is only a question of how to make it a part of your experience ... [through the] EMPRINT method -- the process we used to generate these formulas for human fulfillment and success. "|
One of the exercises suggested is to:
If you concede ... that the quality and expression of human experience
is greatly influenced ... by the nature of the internal processing that each of
us uses to make the world sensible and understandable, then it becomes
important to discover just what kinds of internal processing lead to what kinds
of experiences and behaviors.
... The EMPRINT formats we are about to present are a step in that direction. They are a springboard from which to generate ever more fulfilling solutions to life's puzzles and problems. "
The upcoming chapters use the EMPRINT formats, which "all utilize the know-how for five fundamentals of success":
"Actually getting what you want will be determined by what you do to have that thing, relationship, skill, or experience.":
Discusses the five stages:
|" Attending to and valuing your emotional states, as well as valuing those things which give you satisfying emotions, is important and useful. ... make plans about how [one] is going to feel at various times in the day. "|
Experiments you are invited to make include using contrasting sets of criteria, for which you decide how to fulfill the criteria:
|Set A||Set B|
|Nutritious: e.g., nutrients, vitamins, protein.||Pleasure: e.g., sweet, rich, creamy.|
|Light: e.g., not filling, not feeling heavy or full after.||Reward: e.g., sweet, rich, creamy [the same as for "pleasure"].|
|Fresh: e.g., raw fruits and vegetables; not frozen, canned, or processed.||Available: e.g., pre-packaged; no preparation required.|
|Full: e.g., no longer hungry.||Full: e.g., can't eat another bite.|
"Those criteria that do lead you to the kind of futures that you want for yourself are worthy of being adapted." Criteria such of these can lead to increasing one's value of exercises:
