Posts Tagged ‘positive thinking’

I hear the expression “it is what it is” quite frequently.  Sometimes I wonder if the speaker is simply stating a fact or is resigned to an unhappy outcome.  We cannot change many circumstances and certainly not the perception or behavior of others.  However, I do feel strongly that for most folks  there is often a way to adjust the ebook-cover-angerthings we are in control of – including our own perceptions – and use tools to shift our attitude and way of coping- so the “it”changes a bit and is perceived in a more positive light.  Personally, I stay away from using this expression and often cringe internally when I hear another say it.  When it’s a client, it can become a discussion about additional possibilities and doors to open.  The combination of being intuitive and a great problem solver – looking at myriads of possibilities has helped many clients to see things from a different, more hopeful perspective.

Positive thinking plus positive phrasing fosters success!

It takes conscious effort and patience to change-eliminate certain phrases which have become verbal patterns/habits over the years.  It’s easier to do with a buddy…and/or a snap of a rubber band on the wrist each time the incorrect phrase slips out.  The same idea about cursing which can be challenging to stop and will be much appreciated by everyone who spends time with you. I know, I’ve done that!  The following are often said phrases that are best to change:

“That’s not bad” becomes “That’s quite good.”

“No problem” becomes “You’re very welcome, sure, I’ll be happy to!”

“That’s bad” becomes “That’s not good.”

“Don’t worry” becomes “You’ll be fine.”

“Put some effort into it” becomes “Let’s put some energy into it.”

“It’s too hard” becomes “It’s not easy.”

“I’m sick” becomes “I don’t feel well.”

“I forgot” becomes “I didn’t remember.”

“I’ve been working hard” becomes “I’ve been working well.”

“Don’t cry” becomes “That’s OK..”

There’s a lot of negativity going around.  We can each do this and make a difference!

I can help you change language patterns and behavioral patterns too!  Have you bee procrastinating about something lately?  Contact me for FREE strategy consult

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; acknowledgement of being in this mode is the firststep 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.

Activities that release and relax give you energy and vitality. Stress often builds up in our bodies and minds, leaving us feeling worn down or overly sensitive to stimuli.

 Do you want to feel more positive and energized? Find activities that you like to do- outdoors if possible that include exercise and breathwork.                                     

I love Zumba, a dance-exercise modality and always feel fanastic after taking a class.  A walk on the beach, kayaking in calm waters or bicycling on the Long Beach, Long Island boardwalk are also activities I enjoy that release and relax and give me energy and vitality.

Actively releasing stress from our bodies through physical activity or breath work immediately makes us feel calmer and more in control. Using the power of our minds to focus on more positive thoughts will begin to infuse us with energy and vitality, and we benefit by feeling stronger, more balanced, and ready to engage in our normal activities again.   Spend time releasing tension from your body and mind , and give yourself the gift of energy and vitality.
