9-Gamut Technique for Calming Stress and Negative Emotions

Let’s face it. Being a business owner can be stressful–a lot! And often requires stepping out of our comfort zone to try new things, take risks, and put ourselves out there, which naturally initiates a feeling of fear, doubt, and uncertainty. 

These emotions can cause us to procrastinate on taking action, diminish our creative thinking, drain our confident energy when communicating with others, and engage in unproductive habits–all sabotaging our potential to be and achieve our best.

But how do you stop that “emotion train” once it’s “left the station?” It can seem impossible, even if you’re consciously telling yourself to “snap out of it.”

My go-to technique is EFT (emotional freedom techniques) and I’d like to share with you one of its derivatives, the 9-Gamut Technique, in a quick tutorial video.

How to Sabotage Your Coaching

This post is meant to speak to two groups:
1. Coaches
2. People working with a coach (or contemplating working with a coach)

The coaching process can be very powerful in helping shorten the learning curve of attaining a goal and improving one’s potential to achieve greater things. Yet, many who hire a coach fail to experience the immense benefit that great coaching can provide. Why?

Because of a breakdown in the basic foundations and structure of the coaching process.

If you are spending time and money to work with a coach, make sure to read this post to help prevent yourself from sabotaging your results. If you are a coach, this post can help you be on the lookout for any early signs of dysfunction on either of your parts that can lead to a frustrating experience with your client, so you can turn it around.

The Lefkoe Occurring Process for Dissolving Stress & Negative Emotions

What is the main reason for all (emotional) human suffering?

>>The meaning we give to inherently meaningless events<<

As humans, we have this need to assign MEANING to everything that happens. And with that meaning comes the categorization of things as “positive” or “negative” for us or others. Subsequently, with that categorization, comes emotional response. Things categorized as “negative” elicit negative emotional energy, and vice versa. And negative emotional energy leads to suffering (in many forms, either with the emotion itself or with the destructive behaviors it leads to).

Read the rest of this post to learn a simple 5-step process to quickly turn any negative emotion neutral or even to something positive.

mirroring-stuart smalleyHow to Get Someone to Like & Trust You

You might have heard this before: “People do business with who they know, like & trust.” Whether it’s a company and its reputation, or a person and their reputation or personality, building the “know, like & trust factor” is crucial if you want to gain customers or collaborators (others who assist you in reaching your goals).

NeuroLinguistic Programming (NLP) is one of the modalities I am trained in that teaches ways to gain rapport with someone. This method uses what we have learned about how the mind processes and responds to information. And a technique to get someone to like and trust you is called “matching” or “mirroring.” By using this technique, you can gain rapport with someone within a few minutes.
