The subconscious is incredibly powerful, representing five-sixths of our brain’s thinking and power. To achieve success consistently and effortlessly, you must align your subconscious mind with what you want to create in your life and let go of past programming. If your subconscious beliefs conflict with the outcomes you’re consciously affirming, you’re guaranteed to fail. The subconscious wins … every time.  An ideal time to visualize is in the morning and before sleep, perhaps after meditating.

Visualize what you want. Your subconscious can’t tell the difference between a real and imagined event. When it “sees” what you want to achieve, it will find ways to make your dreams come true.  The same works regarding stress.  “Act as if” and visualizing “it” daily works wonders.  For instance, if you are stressed that you are overweight and a goal is to lose 10 pounds, visualize yourself at that weight- in those clothes.  Act as if you are already losing the weight and do not go on the scale.  Simply smile, exercise and eat well to “maintain” your lost weight.

Here’s another example: You know you need a vacation and can’t imagine taking the time off. Well, do exactly that in your mind, and in real time act as if you are going- soon!

Resilience defined in Webster’s New World Dictionary © 1982:

1. “springing back into shape, position, etc. after being stretched, bent or compressed.”
2. “recovering strength, spirits, etc. quickly.”

Being resilient in body, mind and spirit is key to being happy and successful in all areas of life. Emotionally, it’s the opposite of being “stuck in a rut” and it’s about being positive. Physically, it can translate to strength and flexibility. Spiritually it can indicate faith with the ability to maintain hope in tumultuous times. It’s about staying centered and grounded and making “right” choices.

So, you may be asking yourself, how does one maintain emotional-spiritual equilibrium and resiliency when things can be unpredictable and often in crisis mode? It’s not easy, and takes some work. It’s easy to create positive patterns and habits when life is going smoothly. It can be quite challenging while being swept away by negative forces. A good mentor/coach and practice is important, and the practice will create a “spill-over” effect into life situations.

Many people, including myself, have learned how to be more resilient. There are skill sets of meditation, relaxation breathing, visualization and “tapping” that all add into helping an individual maintain focus and be positive. Exercising, eating healthfully and having healthy relationships are naturally fortifying. Most people are not born resilient, but do have the capacity to learn how to be this way
You are the only one who can control your attitude. By focusing on what is strong and enduring and seeing your potential, you can take calculated risks and overcome challenges. It takes an open, creative mind free from anxiety to pick up on opportunities. They are out there ready to be accessed by your positive and resilient radar.

Some people seem to deal with disasters, large and small, and move on. Somehow they handle the pain and disappointment and go on with their lives.
Resilience appears to be an acquired skill, doctors say. It can be learned and used to get through a personal crisis, be it the end of a marriage, a financial disaster, or a death in the family. Understanding how to deal with it won’t make a tough time less painful, but it can make it easier to live through.

Psychologists believe these techniques can help a person acquire resilience:

* Practice taking risks in your life. Make a speech, take dancing lessons, and learn ways to cope with roadblocks and disappointments.

* Be in charge of your life. The victim mentality is deadly, so forget self-pity. Accept pain when it comes: Feel it, take responsibility for your life, and move on.

*The more positive your self-dialog, the better. Dr. Al Siebert, co-author of The Survivor Personality (Berkeley Publishing), suggests listing possible solutions when a problem occurs. Create a game plan to give yourself a sense of control over the situation.

* Ask for help. Froma Walsh, Ph.D., professor at the University of Chicago, says relationships are important. Those who can confide their feelings to others are more resilient. Surround yourself with people who care and talk to them.

* Think positively. People who look on the positive side rebound more quickly. Remind yourself that the sadness will diminish over time. Look for small pleasures and keep your sense of humor.

* Find some meaning in tragedy. Maybe it brought your family closer together, or prompted you to work for a good cause. When you give to others, it is easier to appreciate what you do have.

You will be more resilient when practicing these on a regular basis.

Here are some wise words to this end written by Ralph Waldo Emerson, to help guide us:
To laugh often and much;
To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children;
To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends;
To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others;
To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition;
To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.
This is to have succeeded.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

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.

Events Don’t Create Emotions — Your Beliefs Do

Reframing is a way of viewing and experiencing events, ideas, concepts and emotions to find more positive alternatives. Perhaps your thoughts go like this: Meetings at work make you bored. Receiving criticism makes you frustrated. Traffic makes you angry. Talking to people you don’t know at a social or business event makes you nervous.

If you want to change your feelings about a situation, you don’t actually have to change the situation itself (which isn’t always possible), or try to avoid it entirely (which can be detrimental).  Instead, you simply have to change your beliefs about it.

How to Reframe for Resilience

So how do you go about changing your beliefs/perspective about something?

Ask yourself: In what context could this be useful?  What else could this mean?

Want to know more about this and how to have optimal happiness and productivity?  Consult: 516 623 4353       www.balanceandpower.com
