Yeah, I am not ready to let go of the topics from Psycho-Cybernetics yet. If you haven’t read the book: EMAIL ME at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send you a free copy. This book should be mandatory in school… get it!
I am still on stress management as a topic. Yesterday we talked about how you can practice not reacting immediately and with stress. Today I want you to start practicing stressful situations ahead of time and by that, relieving some of the pressure from it.
An example from the video today is stressful conversations with your boss(assuming you are not an internet marketer and you actually work from someone else). Picture yourself preparing to ask your boss for a promotion or a raise. You may be worried that your boss will turn you down, maybe worried he will ask you some tough questions… What if he brings up that mistake you made with the orders last quarter? What if someone has complained on your performance without you knowing it, and now he will bring it up to prevent having to give you a raise? –> Here’s what you do:
Sit down and spend some time picturing how the conversation may go. What is the most likely turn of events. Word by word, hear the conversation in your mind. When you feel like you are done – start over but make the conversation take a slightly different turn. Then do it again. And again… until you are sure you have gone through all the possible outcomes. Prepare for the arguments and questions your boss may ask you. See yourself giving the proper answers.
By doing this you remove the stress from the situation. You can go into the meeting knowing that no matter what your boss will throw at you – you have an answer and you will not be nervous about stumbling along. You GOT THIS!
Sounds good? Try it the next time you are dreading something… see how much better it makes you feel.
For those of you who missed it last night: I am looking for three brand new internet marketers that I want to help succeed in this business. I want to do this for free, no strings attached. You do not have to be a member of Big Idea Mastermind or even Empower Network. I will help you regardless. Please just email me at email@example.com if you are interested(PS. I can only take three people at once).
