    Managing Negative Emotions Effectively

    Managing Negative Emotions Effectively

    Why do negative emotions stick around longer than positive ones? 
     
    It’s because we’re wired with a negativity bias. It’s nature’s way of keeping us safe. But it doesn’t feel good.
     
    Negative emotions have a way of spiraling into more than just negative feelings. What may start out as a negative emotion can lead to a limiting belief, an away-from orientation, negative outcomes, fewer resources, and even a general place of disempowerment that doesn’t feel good.
     
    Don’t get the idea that negative emotions are useless — they’re not! In fact, they’re a valuable form of communication from your unconscious mind. And when handled effectively, they can, in a roundabout way, help reorient you in a better direction. 
     
    While your life is an emotional and spiritual journey, we usually have to take action to feel better.
     
    Recognize that emotions — negative and positive ones — are going to happen. Emotions are part of being human. Try to observe your emotions at a distance. It may help to imagine that you’re floating above the event or watching it on a movie screen. Identify the emotions. Writing them down may help. Acknowledge and take ownership of your emotions. This is especially important if other people are involved. Someone else may have done something, but the emotions are yours. Own them. Take responsibility for what you feel.  Honor the emotions as communication from your unconscious mind. Explore, "What is this telling me? What is this alluding to? What’s the evidence here that supports the emotion?" Then explore, "So this is what I'm feeling. What would make it better?” And believe that better is possible. Interrupt the pattern of negative emotions with thinking, “reject-delete,” dancing, reciting a mantra like “this too shall pass,” jumping jacks — whatever gets you in a good mood. After the negative emotion has passed, identify the trigger.  Then focus on intentionally and consistently creating positive states. This will put you at cause.  
    The purpose of all this is to help you feel better. Because when you can feel better, you can do better.

    Feeling Your Way to Success

    Feeling Your Way to Success

    Some people are into hobbies like writing, painting, music, or fitness. 
     
    Me? I’m into self-improvement. Self-improvement is my thing, and it’s been my jam for a long time. As a teenager, I read self-help books for fun. I even put myself in therapy when I was 17. My mom found out when she got a call from Kaiser. So, yeah, that was me, feeling the desire, even as a teen, to gather as many tools and resources as possible to better myself and my life.
     
    You might not be a self-development junkie to the extent that I am, but virtually everyone in my space is here because they want to realize something in their life that’s not yet present. 
     
    And if you’ve been in my space for a while, you know that I preach doing the work. The work involves focusing on what you want so that you can enlist your unconscious mind in the process of manifesting your dreams. 
     
    If you’ve been doing that, and you’re still waiting to see the fruits of your focus, this episode is for you. 
     
    Doing the work and waiting for results can be frustrating. In a recent Soulful Business Revolution session, one client arrived feeling very frustrated. She made it known that she was tired of “doing the work” and not seeing the results. Most of us could relate. And it makes sense on account of quick-fix promises everywhere we turn. 
     
    But there’s a vital component of “doing the work” that we can’t skip. For your unconscious mind to align with your conscious desires, you need to align with the energetic qualities of what you want to create while doing the work. This means staying in a positive mindset, which makes staying in feel-good and empowering states so very important. 
     
    When you think about your goal, if you feel upset or annoyed that it’s not here yet, your unconscious mind links your “not here” thoughts and feelings with your desired goal and the waiting period is just going to take longer, which then perpetuates the “not here” essence. The big problem is that at some point, your unconscious mind can absolutely generalize the association of “not here” with all of your desired outcomes, and before you know it, “not here” can easily become the norm.
     
    Another client proposed a beautiful reframe for this situation. The work and the waiting time are creating space for what’s to come. That reframe can shift feelings of impatience and a sense of lack to anticipation and excitement. 
     
    Think of your waiting time like building a nest. There’s work to do, but it’s all in anticipation and expectation of the beautiful life that’s to come. Think of the “creating space” time like making preparations for a welcomed guest. The preparations you’re making create a positive sense of anticipation and expectation.
     
    Positive feelings about your goals are what prepares you to receive the fruits of your desires. So being keenly aware of your state is crucial. It’s one of the most important things you can do to achieve the outcomes you want.

    NLP Model to Train Your Brain

    NLP Model to Train Your Brain

    There’s a powerful tool in NLP called the negotiation model. The idea — it’s easier to reach an agreement the more ambiguous the concept up for debate is - think of something like “dinner”, chances are everyone in your family can agree that having dinner is a good thing. . Get more specific about what’s for dinner, and it’s harder to reach a consensus.
     
    The goal of the negotiation model is to reach agreement with as much specificity as possible. When there’s disagreement, the model says to scale back to something a little more ambiguous until you reach agreement. 
     
    In today’s episode, we focus on using the negotiation model to reach agreement between your conscious and unconscious minds. 
     
    Goals and plans originate in the conscious mind, but it’s the conscious and unconscious minds working together that bring those plans to fruition. If you’re not living your conscious goals and dreams, your unconscious mind isn’t completely on board. And the way you know is that the unconscious mind, by need, will express itself in your environment, circumstances, and events. So, it’s always telling you what your current agreements are.
     
    Your life experience is your unconscious mind showing you how you’re doing on the inside.
     
    The million-dollar question is, how can we get the unconscious mind to embrace conscious goals, plans, and desires?
     
    Use the negotiation model. Here’s how…
     
    Remember that logic and reason is in the domain of the conscious mind, and the unconscious mind communicates through emotions, symbols, metaphors, and stories.
     
    If making specific plans leaves you feeling anxious and uneasy, your unconscious mind is resistant to those plans at that level of specificity. To gain agreement, shift to more ambiguity. 
     
    Here’s how…
     
    Ask, “What’s the achievement of my goal going to do for me?” Sit with that for a while, and if it feels too far-fetched, go to another level of ambiguity by asking another question, “What would the achievement of my goal make me feel?” 
     
    Your work is to stay in the good-feeling space long enough to go back to more specificity and again ask “What’s the achievement of my goal going to do for me?”. You then stay in specificity for as long as it feels good, and go up to ambiguity to feel better, and so on. Before you know it opportunities and resources will make an entrance and achieving your goals will follow. 
     
    And this, my friend, is the work you’ve heard me talk about so many times. This is it. It’s getting the unconscious and conscious minds into agreement through focus and visualization. Do this three times a day for 10 minutes at a time, and your life will change. 
     
    It’s not easy. One client calls it reframe hell because it takes conscious effort and focus. But it’s powerful and effective. And with your unconscious mind on board, you can truly achieve what you consciously want.

    How Your Unconscious Mind Prevents You form Crushing It in Sales

    How Your Unconscious Mind Prevents You form Crushing It in Sales

    Recently, I surveyed 40 people, and every one of them cringed when we talked about sales and money.
     
    These are people who are interested in growing a business — why would they have such a reaction? Business owners need sales to make money and money makes a business a business.
     
    NLP teaches that the unconscious mind is “a highly moral being,” meaning it upholds beliefs. And the morality your unconscious mind works so hard to uphold is the one that you’ve taught it through your beliefs. The problem is that many of us have deeply rooted, limiting beliefs like…
     
    “Money is hard to come by.” “I never have enough.”  “Selling feels icky.”  
    And your unconscious mind is doing the work to uphold those beliefs and giving you the real-life manifestation of them in your world. The result is that you’re living the essence of your beliefs. If your beliefs are positive and lead to you having what you want, then that’s fantastic. If they don’t, it’s time to get to work and teach your unconscious mind what you want instead. 
     
    In business, things can get sticky because your unconscious mind has also adopted some ideas about selling.
     
    “Salespeople are sleazy.” “Salespeople are pushy.” “Selling is greedy.”  
    To effectively sell and grow your business, you’ve got to get your unconscious mind on board with an improved morality (mindset) about selling. 
     
    Here are 3 powerful ways to start making that shift:
     
    Learn to sell with congruence, integrity, and ecology — meaning it’s good for you, good for the other person, and good for others impacted by the transaction. Practice selling. Find someone you trust and practice role-playing. I know this can feel uncomfortable, but the more you practice, the more your unconscious mind will get on board. Remember, the unconscious mind loves repetition.   Allow yourself to be on the receiving end of sales conversations. A good salesperson can be sold to. This might seem counterintuitive. Don’t they know the tricks of the trade? Sure, but more importantly, a good salesperson is open and understands win-wins.  
    In today’s episode, you’ll hear about the time I wanted to buy a bottle of fancy olive oil and walked out with four bottles of different types of oils and vinegar. The salesperson sold me on them. Was I a sucker? Hardly! My family gobbled up the salad I made for them. I won big, just like the store owner. Sure, I didn’t walk into the store intending to purchase four bottles, but I was open. And in the end, I made a fabulous choice for myself and my family. And, of course, the seller was happy too. We all won.

    End-All Be-All for Client Retention

    End-All Be-All for Client Retention

    For the last week or so, I’ve been reflecting on my first job at age 16. I got a job at Carl’s Jr. (a fast food restaurant) to carry customers’ trays from the counter to their tables. I also made sure the dining room was tidy and kept an eye on the stock levels of the ketchup packets and napkins.
     
    I wanted to do the best job I possibly could.
     
    Before long, I took care of the customers in the entire large dining room on my own — and got tips! Have you ever seen someone tip a fast-food restaurant worker? Well, it happened to me, and it happened often
     
    I didn’t hover around the customers, but I kept an eye on things. I was looking for what I needed to do as well as what I could do. I was looking for ways to create a more enjoyable dining experience. People noticed, and they rewarded me with cash tips that lined my pockets. 
     
    I’ve carried that same servicial (Spanish for helpful) spirit into my work today. It’s just part of who I am. And that spirit helps me stay in rapport with my clients. 
     
    What’s rapport? It’s the process of matching and mirroring another person until the process becomes unconscious, and then BAM! You're in rapport with your person. And when you’re in rapport with another human, it’s natural to feel at ease, to relax, and feel wonderful in their company, and they in yours. 
     
    A few NLP principles are particularly helpful in aiding my ability to be in and maintain rapport with my clients:
     
    Perception is projection. Everyone is doing the best they can. The meaning of communication is the response you get. The map is not the territory.  
    Blend these principles together, and you have a recipe for seeing yourself in your clients, accepting them, and genuinely desiring to be of service to them. 
     
    You’ll be able to…
     
    Care deeply about who you serve and hold onto the vision of the thing they’re wanting. Establish rapport in easy and effortless ways. Get plugged into their vision of their future. Check-in with them regularly in an authentic way.  
    All of this translates into genuine care and concern for your clients. Once you cultivate this spirit, it won’t even feel like work. There’s no better way to effortlessly retain your clients.

    What You Know Vs What You Want

    What You Know Vs What You Want

    When people join my 12-month mentorship and coaching program, they have a goal or dream in mind. They know what they want, and they join to get help to take them there. They come excited, ready, and willing to do the work to bring their dreams to life. 
     
    A principle in NLP is ‘the map is not the territory,” meaning that while we can agree that reality exists, our individual version of reality is subjective and will never ever be the same as someone else's.
     
    Have you ever heard someone say, “That’s the truth?”, based on the principle that the map is not the territory, the truth, is really their truth. Each person’s perspective of that reality is unique based on internal filters dictated by their beliefs, values, memories, emotions, and experiences. 
     
    This makes their truth feel very real. 
     
    Just as we can change the filters of a Google map to see the street, satellite, or terrain view, our internal “map” acts like a filter. We don’t see the whole picture. The whole picture would be all of reality. But our filters keep us from seeing reality in its entirety. Our “map” is only part of the story.
     
    Just like a Google Map, we can change the view of our internal “maps.”
     
    What does this have to do with growing your business and personal development? 
     
    Your map needs to expand.
     
    I’ve learned the hard way that the best way to expand beyond our current “map,” or comfort zone, is to align the unconscious mind with the conscious desires through positive, toward language and by focusing on the essence of what you want. 
     
    Transitioning from here to there can be an uncomfortable process, but it doesn’t have to be painful. Change can be uncomfortable and exhilarating, inspiring, motivating, and fulfilling — all at the same time.
