Hypnosis Law #2: The Mental Law of Dominant Effect

The strongest emotion always wins.

The Law of Dominant Effect is another mental law that states that the strongest emotion will always win. If your fear to avoid failure is stronger than your desire to succeed, then inevitably you will hold yourself back because the fear will win. It is important to look at your negative emotions and beliefs and to question these against reality and then to let them go. It is also important to cultivate strong positive emotion toward success so that any limiting feelings do not run the show. There may always be some level of fear and doubt, but optimism and faith should be much stronger.

A strong emotion takes precedence over the intellect in directing behavior.

Imagination has a more powerful influence on behavior than reason/knowledge.

Courage is the ability to feel fear but act anyway.
