Do you realise that the brain cannot process a negative
command or statement? If you say to your child "be
careful, don't spill your milk" as they carry the glass full of
milk across the kitchen the child has to actually think of
spilling the milk so that it can take the necessary action not
to do it. We tend to get what we focus on and so by the
child thinking of spilling milk that is often what tends to
happen which normally results in a loud "But I told you not
to spill that milk". So the moral of the story is ask for what
you want, not what you don't want.
