The way we think about things is powerful in creating our experiences in life. Change your outlook - change your life. So in business when you are going into a big meeting or interview, etc. what your mental pictures are will shape the outcome of that meeting. The more you can also attach positive emotions to those pictures the more powerful the impact.
This is another example of how much power we have in our own lives. So how do we do this? It all begins with being aware of what our mental state is at the time. Often we are so busy and dealing with so much that self-awareness seems like a luxury we don’t have time for. But, in truth being aware of where we are mentally and emotionally especially during important times pays dividends far great than the time it takes to do it.
How do you know where you are emotionally and mentally? It’s easy but it takes practice and attention - If when you think of the situation you’re going into and you feel anxious or panic you are not master of your fate. Anxiety and fear especially when going into a new situation means that you are bringing in past experiences into a new situation. And the past experiences you are bringing in to the new situation have negative emotion attached to them. It also lets you know that there is some negative charge still left from the past. It will pay big dividends if you can go back to the old situation that was brought up by this new one. See the previous experience, feel the feelings from it and then see that that situation no longer has any any power over you. It’s over and just a memory and really can’t do anything to you other than what you do to yourself. Now see the old situation knowing it can’t hurt you in any way. Then picture a new positive outcome and how it feels to have this new and better outcome in that old situation. Now as you walk into new situations that remind you of that old one you no longer carry the fear and anxiety. You have changed the past and your present. You may have to do it more than once if you’ve been carrying it for a long time. But it will pay off big time.
If you do that in the important areas of your life you will see your life turning around. It’s all about self-awareness, changing how you react to the past, taking your power in the now, It’s not a complicated process but it takes willingness to take the time to do the above process.
This will give you an edge in business as well as in your life. It will also help you to get insight why people react as they do. They are having the same experience of bringing the past into the present.
Have fun changing your life. Be patient with yourself because it does take repetition and time. But you will see results.
My best to you,
