I want to devote a separate lesson to discussing tenpower thereby giving it the importance it deserves.
If these lessons were just about theory, tenpower could be left out, but it’s really a training program about action. You don’t just want to know about cognetics, you also want to be able to DO it.
Practice, Repetition, Rehearsal
It was revealed to me during my army training lessons, in the late ’60s, when I was a 20-year-old national serviceman draftee, how amazingly effective was the strategy of REPETITION. Army instructors demonstrated its power by always having us use practise, repetition and rehearsals.
I remember thinking it odd, at the time, that an ambush was actually rehearsed in detail in the field before being laid that night. But why not? Ambushing is a skill and anything that is a skill can be dramatically improved with repetition and practice.
A pattern is something that is repeated more often than randomness or chaos. The architecture of a pattern is repetition. That’s why in a patterning-system like the human brain system, repetition is the most powerful learning strategy you can use.
That’s also why you’ll notice a great deal of repetition in this training. It’s not because I’ve forgotten that I’ve already discussed something with you. It’s to help build patterns in your brain so it becomes easierÂ for you to remember and use the software.
IN A PATTERNING SYSTEM, LIKE THE HUMAN BRAIN SYSTEM, THERE IS NO STRONGER MAGIC THAT CAN BE USED THAN THE MAGIC OF REPETITION.
All this is critical when acquiring new skills. And, repeating things ten times is an excellent way to exploit tenpower.
