Power of Emotions: Repressed Emotions Surface as Pain


Feelings are a part of our lives. Feelings are a by-product of our core beliefs. We accept, deal, express, deny or avoid feelings constantly in order to function in our lives. Our own feelings as well as others. For the most part, it is not the feelings we encounter every day that shape our lives the most, but it is the feeling that we submerged deep within us as a result of our experiences. 

No matter how great or how small the event, we were unable to modulate those overwhelming feelings during our darkest periods. We hide these unclosed feelings beneath the surface of our consciousness. It is these submerged feelings which cripple our present decisions, affect attitudes and devour our future behavior. We must find a creative way to walk through our resistance to raise old buried feeling.

Tip

A major tip is to revisit emotions you have not dealt with and then make closure with them. Let them go. In order to do this, you have to leave our comfort zone of avoidance and free yourself. 

Take Away

The fear of facing your repressed emotions is not as damaging as continuing to carry the pain of unclosed feelings deep within you.

Inner Values are really Core Beliefs; 4 Tips for Becoming Positive


Branding is a concept which has been used in advertising for many years. When a business is successfully branded then everyone knows the name and represents success in the marketing world. A few examples and recognizable brands: Coke, Pepsi, Samsung Apple and BMW to just name a few. 

Branding is used in developing awareness of a name, identifying a trademark, to identify a product, service or a manufacturer. Branding can also be used in distinguishing a symbol, mark, logo, name, word, sentence or an individual which distinguishes a product from other similar products in the market.

The purpose of this article to help you brand a new product - you. I feel that the branding concept could be extended to the life skill and self-improvement world. The way to do this is a life skill called a re-authoring of self or re-scripting your brand. Re-authoring of self or re-scripting is done by developing an action plan that assists you in forming a new identity and then branding it to your outer world.

Individuals who experienced childhood abuse and/or trauma are robbed of their ability to know themselves and the only identity they know of is the one their abuser drape them in. Their sense of self is lost and he/she move through life not knowing who they are.

Tips on Positive Change

In life, everyone has the right or personal authority to know his/her own identity. Many who have created a new identity are seen as being successful in re-inventing themselves. 

Re-scripting is a way to re-create or re-author self into whatever he/she wants to be. A new script is an identity map of how he/she would want to act, feel, look, think and react. This self-concept allows the "developer" to create and then know exactly the exact steps he or she took to create their new identity. He or she will know what distinguishes self from others. Start today in re-thinking yourself completely, script it on paper into an action plan, practice it every day, and hold steadfast to that scripted identity.

After the re-scripting is complete an action plan needs to be developed and then practicing your new script to gain mastery of the new identity. 

Mastery of the new identity is accomplished through practicing, practicing and practicing it some more days, over months. Over a course of months, the new identity will become a natural function of self. 

Take Away

Remember practicing your new brand is what makes any person in sports, business, or a profession become proficient. Once the new script is completed, then investigate and learn the principles of branding. Apply these principles to spread the awareness of the new identity and give light to your creation.

Positive Movement without Confidence


The problem that is affecting all of us today is a lack of confidence.

Last November our nation overwhelmingly voted for change, a difference, a move out of the darkness of business as usual and all we have gotten is more of the same old establishment. The place that we are now in is the same as the last eight years, someone else is setting our mindset once more. Our new leader is now saying "it is so bad but in fact, it will get worst". Remember that our present leaders are the same ones that convinced us that "everything is good" (last eight years) and now they are resetting our mindset to "the sky is falling".

When someone tells us over and over that things are bad, then everyone thinks it is bad and begins to produce negative beliefs, thoughts, and energy. Maybe it is possible the trouble with our lives is our lack of confidence due to our "mindset" that is being reset by others and makes us question ourselves.

We need to rise up in a quiet revolution and create a new path of mental discipline. Collectively think confidently on a daily basis, join together in effecting a new silent change and movement will happen.
