Believing in yourself is the most powerful affirmation you can give to yourself!
Having trust in ourselves helps motivate us to take risks and go the extra mile. It is easier to take initiative and action when we feel capable and self-assured.  Self-trust in our actions tends to result in success. Consider having giving yourself a supportive little talk if you feel self-doubt to reinforce your belief in yourself and boost your self-confidence.
When you go above and beyond the norm in some aspect of your life or are allowing those around you to see more of your emotions than you’re used to showing, you may feel that you are taking a risk. Hopefully, those in your sphere are meeting your efforts with more support or trust than you might have expected.  Others may be reacting positively to your actions today or perhaps communicating strong faith in your abilities.  
Trust yourself today when you take risks, and your actions will be self-affirming and create positive results.  I have helped many Peak performance success coaching and  EFT

Always acknowledge your emotions- even if they’re not positive so that they’re not suppressed-repressed leading to negativity.  When they are acknowledged, only then , can you transform anxiety and stress to well being and success, being resilient!!!

Here are three strategies for being happy in today’s crazy world:

  • Connect With People: Just being around others isn’t enough. Join groups that you share something with. You need to be “in it together” to tackle challenges better than when loneliness is a true emotion.
  • Connect With Your Intrinsic Values: More doing what you love because you love it. Chasing status (including on social media – counting “likes” often) –  places happiness outside your control.  Feeling “out of control” is a true definition of stress.
  • Connect with Nature: Go outside for a reason other than to pick up that box from Amazon.  *Research shows people who exercise in nature are even happier than people who exercise indoors.*  Perhaps you’ll have a personal “reframe” while doing this – without even thinking about the situation!

Please comment below to let me know how this goes.  I’m always available for a free consult via phone.  Sessions in Skype and Uniondale, NY ; also on your site.

Combining tasks and priorities whenever it is possible (versus multitasking) is a wonderful way to get more accomplished in a short time! Sometimes simply looking at a “to do” list of important “I must do today” tasks in an unhurried, thoughtful and self-brainstorming way, creates doable combinations. I’ve consistently been a fan of you can “have your cake and eat it too” philosophy when that makes sense and doesn’t create conflict.

It is my hope that you, dear reader, create happy, productive lives for yourselves, abundant in all that sustains you! I encourage you to pursue your passions and dreams, complete your goals and be grateful for it all, as it is not possible to feel sad or overwhelmed in the same moments that you feel grateful!

In order to make 2016 your best year yet, experts suggest that we schedule a few minutes to ask ourselves and answer a few questions so our year is planned in advance. As you likely know, planning is bringing the future into the present, writing crystallizes thinking and crystallized thought motivates action.

1. What am I doing to improve and use more of my potential?

2. What goals have I written to accomplish?

3. Are they specific, measureable, attainable, realistic and tangible?

4. Have I created detailed plans of actions with monthly steps to reach them?

5. What obstacles do I face to achieve these goals?

6. How am I going to overcome these obstacles and roadblocks?

The following study demonstrates the importance of goal setting:

Do you make these statements often?:   “not the right time now”   “why even bother…can happen (worst case scenario).”

Sometimes the act of “non-doing” is an indication that the idea needs to be tossed.

What holds us back from accomplishing our goals is fear.

  • Fear of failure
  • Fear of being judged
  • Fear of success
  • Fear of being controlled

These fears are often caused by deeply routed anxieties.  No matter- you can turn it all around with EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques: Meridian Tapping) combined with positive language-visualization reframing techniques and the intention to do just that!

 If these kind of things keep happening to you, you have a problem:

  • If you’ve experienced painful consequences as a result of putting things off or not finishing projects.
  • If you are sick and tired of being late with deadlines
  • If your friends, coworkers or loved ones get upset with you because you don’t follow through with projects or promises.

The following are common phrases/excuses people often use when they are procrastinating:

The task is:

“too boring”

“too time consuming”

“I just don’t feel like it”

“I just don’t want to”.

Good news!  Here are some tips to Reverse Procrastination: 

  • Step back and reframe the situation; visualize the action as a positive outcome.
  • Outline the steps needed to complete the project.
  • Create realistic timelines and write short and long term goals; breaking down the task into reasonable “time chunks”.
  • Allow new ideas to “percolate”.
  • Learn The EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), wonderfully successful in  reversing procrastination, as usually deeper emotional issues are involved.  This technique is described below.

Knowing that you are afraid will not magically remove fear or change behavior.  You can use The EFT Technique  to eradicate the roadblocks of guilt and fear that keep you from moving forward!  When you use EFT (Emotional Freedom technique, Tapping) and stimulate specific acupressure points the level of serotonin in the brain rises and floods the amygdala, the section of the brain involved with controlling emotion and fear, and the fear loop is disconnected.  Once the brain stops experiencing fear with the proper EFT tapping, including set-up phrases (see below examples) and intuitive NLP language guidance from an experienced EFT Practitioner, you will find that your thoughts and behaviors transform effortlessly.  You can use EFT to tap away feelings of guilt, shame or rebellion surrounding your fear factor.  Some of the “have-to’s” turn into choose to’s!  Use EFT to eradicate the roadblocks of doubt that keep you from moving forward!  Before you do the EFT, “take your temperature “on the issue- what is your level of distress with the procrastination or the level of procrastination itself, 10 being the highest.  After completing 3 rounds of EFT, see your score.  Tap on the specific issue daily, until it gets done or you decide to toss it.

Here are a few EFT “set up phrases” that can be helpful in working with procrastination:

  • “Even though I am procrastinating about…, I know it’s important and I can get it done.”
  • “Even though I keep putting off doing…I choose to get started today.”
  • “Even though I am resisting..I know I can do it.”

The set-up phrase is said as you tap on the karate chop point or the “sore spot”.

Each additional point gets tapped on 6-8 times as the practitioner and eventually you says something about your issue.  More about Tapping       eft long islandDownload: EFT Tapping Points (pdf)

After completing three rounds of tapping, sit back, take several relaxation breaths (in through the nose, out through the nose or mouth abdomen expanding before your chest) and visualize the completed outcome of your task. Write down realistic, measurable step into goals.  Decide when you will take the first action step and stay with your plan.  When the task is completed, reward yourself!!

Positive results after several rounds of tapping need to be followed up.  Check in with yourself.  Be honest.  There’s no such thing as too much tapping, too much visualization or too much relaxation breathing (happening in a safe and healthy environmentJ).

Short term challenge:  Continue tapping on your current procrastination issue daily until you are satisfied with your action steps.

Long Term Challenge: Take time every day to go over your goals and reprioritize when necessary.  Notice if any there is anything new being procrastinated about and tap on that for several days until you are satisfied with the results.

Wheel of Life (2)Personal balance is different for everyone. It has to do with where you are starting and where you want to be…It depends on what your responsibilities (or perceived ones) are and the time and energy you need to allow for that and for simple and more complex pleasures.  It’s not about having equal pieces of the “wheel of life” in the chart above; it’s about giving each piece the time and energy it needs. Most of us have evaluated our success and not meeting goals for the past year and have goals and action plans in mind for this year.  It’s important to take action now.  Are you ready? Now is the time!
