I make an effort to redirect my negative thoughts. I tell my clients one trick is to mentally say STOP. Check yourself. Don’t allow the negative stream to continue.
On occasion there are a lot of stops. I am sure my mind would look like a lurching car. Stop -Go-Stop-Go…and so on. But in the end using this technique and others – I am able to maintain an aura of calm and patience. I breathe, smile and move forward in a way that others remark on.
The thing is this isn’t a feat unique to me. It is something that you can do to! Many of my clients ask for tools that fit their individual lives. I find that once they begin to practice these – they work!
It is when the stress and scary thoughts are laid to rest that you find the ability to grow, to enjoy and to allow joy in. It is amazing how the empty cracks are filled with happiness and self esteem. It is what I love about coaching! Watching this shift.
