Today we are talking about how to stay positive
Take that look off your face
Right now you’re probably thinking this is about meditating
Even though meditating is awesome
Especially the let’s keep it CS Honest Meditation* I created (*shameless plug) which is coming soon
So here’s the thing…
Negative shiz happens
There is no denying it.
In fact to deny our negative emotions, to not acknowledge negative emotions, is actually bad for your well-being!
Research has shown we need negative emotions in our life and we shouldn’t just be using self-affirmations (more on that a little later)
Appropriate negativity is essential when it comes to staying positive
Negative emotions offer us feedback on our performance, gives us hints on what’s working and what’s not so we can navigate our behaviour and learn ways to improveEverything negative - pressure, challenges - is all an opportunity for me to rise. Kobe Bryant Click To Tweet
Dishwashing gives immediate results 💯 Your business & your life changes take time. ⏰ So give yourself permission to get results that aren’t immediate.😜 💯 Because you’re doing something much greater than washing dishes 🎯
So how do you stay positive when your business isn’t generating the revenue even though you set targets?
How do you stay positive when people are not watching your live streams and they are not converting?
How do you stay positive when you don’t feel like getting out of bed?
How do you stay positive to sell with confidence?
Well, you don’t just use positive affirmations!
Instead, we use afformations
Yes I spelled it right AFFORMATIONS!
Afformations are a way for you to ask questions that go from “I will” to “will I”
For example instead of I will close this lead. You instead ask, will I close this lead? Then the mind finds all the reasons, all the evidence as to why you will, it’s just one of the activities I teach in FREE 4 Ways to Get Sales Faster video series I created
And in my main program 90 Days To Sales Mastery, we actually create those powerful afformations together
You Need The Right Positivity To Stay Positive
So how do you know if you have the right negative to positive ratios so you know you have just the right amount to stay positive?
Well I am glad you asked friend
The exact ratio is 3:1
For every three instances of feeling gratitude and one instance of anger, guilt or embarrassment people generally flourished.
But let’s go even deeper here:
Negative emotions are unintentional
Overflowing like a wave of doubt
While positive emotions are much more deliberate, intentional making it seem like we have to be in a reflective state to actually tap into it
So what does that mean?
It means in order to say positive we must be obsessed with balancing the 3:1 ratio
Ask yourself a few questions so you stay on track to stay positive
Do you give up too easily?
Are you learning self-helplessness and sometimes explain things as permanent, universal or personal (see PUP technique in video above)?
There are a bunch of other questions that are essential to staying positive.
But Ruth-Ellen how do you know how to respond to make sure you stay positive?
Ahha, that is where the video comes in my friend (go watch it already) it has the type of responses that you may have come up with.
