“What you think and feel and what you get are always a match. And so, if you want something different than what you’ve been getting, you have to generate different feelings.”

Remember, information from our eyes and ears travels to the emotional center of our brain before it can get to our “thinking brain.”  If you want better emotions, better thoughts, and better performance, listen to your heart by using the Freeze-Frame® technique.

EI Quote: Let go of Stress

August 6th, 2014  / Author: Byron Stock

hq081014Emotional Intelligence Quote
A psychologist walked around a room while teaching stress management to an audience. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they’d be asked the “half empty or half full” question. Instead, with a smile on her face, she inquired: “How heavy is this glass of water?”

Answers called out ranged from 8 oz. to 20 oz.

She replied, “The absolute weight doesn’t matter. It depends on how long I hold it. If I hold it for a minute, it’s not a problem. If I hold it for an hour, I’ll have an ache in my arm. If I hold it for a day, my arm will feel numb and paralyzed. In each case, the weight of the glass doesn’t change, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes.” She continued, “The stresses and worries in life are like that glass of water. Think about them for a while and nothing happens. Think about them a bit longer and they begin to hurt. And if you think about them all day long, you will feel paralyzed – incapable of doing anything.”

It’s important to remember to let go of your stresses. As early in the evening as you can, put all your burdens down. Don’t carry them through the evening and into the night. Remember to put the glass down!

How long have you been carrying around worry or stress about family, projects, problems, health, etc.?  You have the power to put them down by using the Freeze-Frame® technique.  Every time you look at your cup of coffee or drink today, think about the weight of carrying stress around with you.
