Want to know a secret on how to be successful?
-it’s not knowing it all
-it’s not being perfect
-it’s not you doing it all by yourself
If you want to reach a goal, the number one thing is learning how to respond emotionally to the circumstances around you.
Learning to respond instead of REACTING will open so many doors for you.
Emotions influence the body's system in ways that can renew or deplete you at a physiological, social, behavioral, and cognitive level. From a psychophysiological perspective, emotions are central to the experience of stress. Your stress response is activated when YOUR SENSE of control over your environment is challenged. So you start feeling frustration, anxiety, despair, or hopelessness and you quit pursuing that goal that you so eagerly had planned out.
Emotional arousal dominates the mental landscape and it's more difficult to calm down, shift away and "turn off" any strong emotions that you are feeling.
This is also why when threatened, people tend to react first and think about it later. I'm sure we have all experienced this in our life more than once.
After I learned how to apply this approach and started teaching others, I have witnessed amazing changes and success stories in many others. It won't always be easy or flawless, strive to get better at it each day. Some days I really struggle and overanalyze everything but most days are balanced, joyful, and relaxed regardless of the circumstances in my life. This is why having someone experienced in this subject that truly understands you can be so beneficial to your business and relationships.
Next time you are feeling stressed, anxious, and wanting to give up on your vision of success try this simple but powerful technique that will influence your sympathetic nervous system.
1. Place your attention on the area of your chest with your eyes opened or closed. Imagine your breath flowing in and out of your chest or heart area, breathing a little slower and deeper than usual.
2. Experience any regenerative feeling that you prefer like appreciation or care for someone or something in your life (partner, friend, pets, an accomplishment, or special place)
3. Continue inhaling for 5 seconds, exhale for 5 seconds, or whatever rhythm is more comfortable for 3 more cycles.
4. List everyday situations that drain you and next time they happen apply this technique and make a note of how you felt afterward vs doing nothing about it.
