In This Episode, You'll Discover:

  • Why it's hard to focus when you are in stressful situations
  • Why two people can have very different perspectives about the same event or situation
  • Two super-simple and powerful techniques to stay calm and present 

Action Steps: 

  • Goal: Continue to master the art of re-training your Inner Bully AND quickly find your inner-calmness
  • ACTION STEP ONE: When you are aware that your Inner Bully is talking to you, stop, take several deep breaths and ask yourself:
    • What story am I telling myself about this situation? 
    • Are the concerns that I’m having now valid for this particular situation, or is it my Inner Bully telling me stories from my past to keep me inside my box?
    • What do I truly want to do?
    • What can I do right now to be the Boss?
  • Create a plan of how you want to feel and how you want to be. Spend a little time thinking about these details. Look to others for inspiration. Then practice being this way in your mind--over and over again, until you feel comfortable, or even excited!
    • Each time you have an emotion that you don't want to have, practice neutralizing that emotion and shift yourself into a calm state by using the simple and powerful "Choosing Calm" and  "Simple Truth" techniques. 
    • ** Remember to write these down in your journal so you can track your progress.
