Be strong enough to let go. And patient enough to wait for what you deserve.

Take 4 minutes to watch psychologist Paul Ekman explain how to outsmart evolution and master your emotions. (I promise you this method really works!)

Again, it doesn’t matter if your emotional attack dogs are the result of a partner’s betrayal, a business deal gone bad, or a life adversity over which you had absolutely no control. The brain’s natural emotional response can be your complete undoing unless and until you master this process.

Now, if you’ve identified your emotional attack dogs and they are barking non-stop to keep you from moving forward, the second video demonstrates how to use the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) of tapping to release them.

EFT is highly effective for this and many other purposes. I recommend learning and using it to support yourself on the journey to success.

More next time. Until then, remember to LOVE YOUR WORK, whatever it may be.

PS I hope you’ll find the new RAISING THE BAR series inspiring. If so, please share this post with friends and followers. You never know what burdens others are carrying or how much their load might be made lighter by doing so. ♥♥♥


Raising The Bar is a new series for the SMARTSTART community that has been taking shape in my head for most of the time I’ve spent working to recover from catastrophic brain, spinal cord and psychological injuries resulting from a near fatal accident in 2009. Success, whether it’s in rehab, business, relationships, or life, hinges on our ability to master this simple formula: Belief (B) + Attitude (A) = Response (R).

I’m excited to be sharing it with you now as a next step in my injury recovery. Consider this your invitation to join me on a grand adventure. Oh, the places we will go! Including all the places that scare us most. For that is where the greatest opportunities for joy and happiness — the true measures of success — reside!
