BECAUSE: A Mighty Powerful Convincer

BECAUSE, YOU SAID SO!!!
Chew on this:
Which of the following three sentences is most likely to get you a raise?
a. Boss, I’ll quit if I don’t get a raise.
b. Boss, I need a raise now, please …[and do dig deep].
c. Boss, I need a raise, because life is expensive and I’m worth it.
(Answer: c)

Using “because,” can significantly improve your odds of getting what you want, because people are more likely to do things when you say “because,” simply because people like to have reasons for doing what they do!
Why do I tell you this and what connection does ‘because’ have to Permanent Fat Removal?
I tell you this, because I hear you using “because” quite a bit and you may not realize that you are unleashing the power of because on yourself to justify that piece of cake. You are selling yourself on the notion that you need that piece of cake. And when you do eat it … congratulations you’ve just made that sale!
More to YOUR point, here are a couple of examples of what y’all have said to me in private sessions, group tele-talks, in e-mails this past week.
“I’m going to a party and will eat whatever the hostess prepares, because I don’t want to hurt her feelings.”
“I’m taking the day off from exercising, because rain is predicted.”
“I’ll do the mental-cises later, because I am in a crunch for time.”
Because is a mighty powerful convincer!
Because introduces a direct reason to your mind. Your mind loves order and even if your ‘because’ could be challenged …
i.e. with regard to going to the party and eating whatever you like … “How do you know that the hostess’s feelings will be hurt? What would happen if you spoke to her before the dinner and requested the sauce on the side?” … your ‘because’ is all your mind needs to hear. Because your mind seeks reason and order and ‘because’ delivers justification.
This one single word gives you reason to believe, to accept, to justify, to do what you want.
Spread the word … NOT the icing! (because I said so!!!)
