How many times did you say YES too easily to something you didn't really want? Have you done it to please someone, or because you felt obliged, or simply because saying NO would have made you feel horrible and guilty?
How often have you graciously said "thank you" when someone gave you a compliment, without reflecting it, like a mirror, into another direction?
--> "nice top" -> "oh, ...this is so old"
-->"well done with the project" -> "thanks to the team"
--> "you look fantastic" -> "it's just the make up"
Do you remember last time when you finally asked for help?
It happens mostly with women that, when we eventually ask for help we give a dozen thanks, and when we give a dozen thanks we start to apologize, and when we apologize we feel sorry, and when we feel sorry we start thinking we're not good enough… you know what I mean...
So, today I'm going to share a secret with you:
It's okay to be the Cool One instead of the Good One ... it will change your life.
It has been scientifically proven the Heart (not the brain) is in control of the mind.
It generates the largest electromagnetic field in the body (5,000 times more energy than the brain) and sends more information to the brain than the other way around.
In an earlier article I explained how our negative feelings create heart rate irregularities, inducing disorder in the brain and, in the worst case, causing the frontal lobe to shut down.
Positive emotions preserve a consistent heartbeat, creating order in the brain, inducing enhanced performance (improved clarity, decision-making, response time, creativity...).
How to access your potential beyond what you believe you are capable of
From my experience I recognize three actions which, if all taken, will foster positive emotions, getting us and keeping us on top of our game:
The Heart is the Primary Source of Power, in Control of the Mind
Did you know that the heart generates the largest electromagnetic field in the body?
Its electrical power is 60 times greater than the brain's and its magnetic field is about 100 times stronger. It's now proven, the heart sends more information to the brain than the other way around.
Our thoughts, even subtle emotions, influence our heart-rhythm. Complex information encoded in between heart-beats is then shared with the brain, impacting our health and performance (our clarity, decision-making, response time, creativity...).
