These tips are tried and true! :

1.  Listen to and follow your intuition.

During these trying and difficult times it’s been shown that it’s often necessary to reprioritize to get best outcomes.   Your intuition is most often correct when it comes to your life, work and relationships.  So even if it’s an inkling feeling – a tiny revelation- take a moment to recognize that and then move forward.

2.  Stay within your integrity- no matter what.

No reason or person is important enough to ever stray.  If you have  tried this over the years, whether intentionally or not, then you know it always backfires.

 3.  Love and laugh!

Both are proven stress reducers.  Happiness is contagious – many need more of that now while surrounded by global negativity, difficult times, chaos and immersed in “the new normal”.

 4.  Forgive yourself  for mistakes; let go and move on. 

Self-forgiveness is essential in order to forgive anyone else.  Forgiveness is essential to let go of anger.  Letting go of anger is essential to be happier.  Especially in “the new normal” this is a no-brainer :).

5.  Take time each day  to relax, to dream.

We need our “down” time more than ever now, living in these difficult times.  Honor your method of relaxation and allow dreams to surface.  Be open to learning additional relaxation techniques and give them a try.. whatever works for you whenever you do it is OK as long as it has no negative effects on health or  overlaps with personal or work responsibilities.  If things are unmanageable – get help.

 6.  Be a great listener.

Listening is the most important part of communication.  If you do not understand what is being said, ask. Listen well and your response will  be more on target.

7.  Stay healthy by practicing extreme self-care. (diet, sleep, exercise, relaxation techniques).

Stress takes its toll on health and may exacerbate conditions already in existence.  Therefore we need to be more diligent in this realm in order to   “Thrive Amidst Chaos” (the title of a workshop I co-presented with two colleagues recently).

8.  Stop procrastinating and take action- move forward or drop the project.

We all procrastinate; acknowledgment of being in this mode is the first step in moving forward.  All procrastination is fear based and manifests itself through negative statements such as:

“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 and Peak Performance Success Coaching and the intention to do just that!

The following are a few common phrases/excuses people 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”.

The Good news is that   EFT ( The Emotional Freedom Technique) is wonderfully successful in reversing procrastination, as usually deeper emotional issues are involved.  It is based on the simple statement that the cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body’s energy system . It involves tapping on meridian points while making statements about the issue.

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 and stimulate the acupressure points (see chart) the level of serotonin in the brain rises and floods the amygdalia, 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, set-up phrase (see below examples) and intuitive NLP language guidance from an experienced EFT Practitioner, which I am, you will find that your thoughts and behaviors transform effortlessly.

9.  Begin each day with a short meditation positive visualizations of successful outcomes of your goals.

Oh! I am so much a believer in this!  Research has shown fantastic results.  It’s all up to you – and your connection to a higher power/the universe.

10.  Believe in yourself and your goals; create affirmations and post them onto mirrors, in an accessible notebook and in the car.

I’ve witnessed amazing escalation in self-esteem, happiness, productivity and success with the implementation of these tips for my clients.

Stop Worrying!  Did you know that:

  • 40% of worrying is over things that will never happen
  • 30% of worrying is over things that can’t be changed
  • 10% of worrying is over health (which only gets worse if you worry!)
  • 8%  of worrying is over legitimate concerns (worry!)
  • We spend over 92% of our time and energy worrying about things that:
  1. We have no control over
  2. We can’t possibly change
  3. Have misperceived

What would happen if we channeled this energy and effort constructively rather than “adding fuel to the fire”?   Worry is like stepping on the gas pedal while the car is in neutral:  we create a lot of noise, use up energy and don’t get anywhere!

Make a list of things you worry about.  Divide your list into categories listed at the top of this outline.  How do you want to redirect your focus?

“An unexamined life is not worth living.”  – Socrates

Symptoms of Inner Peace :   Place a smile on your face ( a stress reducer)!-(author unknown)

  • A tendency to think and act spontaneously rather than on fears based on past experiences
  • An unmistakable ability to enjoy each moment
  • A loss of interest in judging other people
  • A loss of interest in conflict
  • A loss of the ability to worry. (This is a very serious symptom.)
  • Frequent, overwhelming episodes of appreciation
  • Contented feelings of connectedness with others and with nature.
  • Frequent attacks of smiling.
  • An increasing tendency to let things happen rather than make them happen.
  • An increased susceptibility to the love extended by others as well as the uncontrollable urge to extend it.

It’s a process, now go forth and practice!

“Change the way you look at things and the things you look at will change.” – Dr. Wayne W. Dyer

2. Challenge your belief! Write down, and take time to acknowledge, all the life experiences that you have had that actually PROVE your old belief is not true. This may be in the form of compliments that you have received, promotions at work, loving relationships, etc.
3. Identify your desired outcome.  Write down all your desired outcomes relating to replacing the old belief. Choose one outcome that most powerfully represents who you would be if you had that outcome.

4. Ask yourself: “What am I willing to do to make these changes?” You can always get ideas and reinforcement from professional guidance and support in one-on-one sessions or group programs. You really don’t have to go it alone in your life, and the belief that “you should” is in itself a disempowering belief!

5. Learn EFT and “tap on it”.  ebook-cover-eft-web

Love, respect yourself and believe you deserve…and  the challenges will actually help you learn and grow, not wear you down. Remember, you are lovable, capable and worthwhile.  You are enough!

Give yourself the freedom – permission to speak your mind (within assertive guidelines) without being a people pleaser!  Trusting initial thoughts and speaking your truth without too much refinement or rearranged words is often the best choice.

There may be a fine line between thinking before speaking and being overly self-critical in analyzing thoughts into words.  Give yourself credit for good communicative skills and intelligence!  Always keep “in mind” and “be aware” of the general distinctions among assertive, passive and aggressive communication-behavior styles for your best communication!

Assertive

  • Honest
  • Expressive
  • Use of “I” statements
  • Confrontation is OK
  • Compromise

Passive

  • Avoids conflict
  • Laid back
  • Taken advantage of
  • Indecisive
  • People Pleaser

Aggressive

  • Dominate
  • Manipulate
  • Goes beyond personal boundaries
  • Takes a stand at the expense of others

SOAR! with Resilience®: The Interactive Book for Overcoming Obstacles & Achieving Success”

 

A must read for anyone struggling to take their personal or professional life to a higher level of success and satisfaction.
 A high level of energy may leave you feeling stimulated and not completely aware of the effects of the choices you make.  This may be a good time to work on balancing your spontaneity with intuition.Taking a moment or two to think about the effects of our choices, we are still acting on the spur-of-the-moment, but we also act using our intuition as a guide. This prevents us from making decisions we may later regret. We respect and pay attention to both our desire for the unstructured and our natural instincts.   Be attuned to your intuition! Balancing spontaneity with intuition is your best outcome. Need help with this?
