The Negative to Positive Emotion Transformation

The Negative to Positive Emotion Transformation | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

We are emotional beings, this is what we are. Everything that happens in our life makes us feel some sort of emotion. Whether it’s the satisfaction from eating our morning breakfast, the anger from our daily commute to work, the challenge from working out at the gym, the joy from spending time with loved ones, the calmness from relaxing in a quiet place alone, or the sadness from dealing with some sort of loss, we feel emotion in everything we do and we will continue to do so for the rest of our life. Therefore if we are bound to feel emotions for the remainder of our life, why should we be stuck feeling negative emotions?

Ariana Amorim's insight:

"As you can see, your emotional state can quickly be altered just by simply changing the words used to describe such feelings. Although you will still be describing the emotions you’re feeling from the situation, you now will be feeling it in more of a positive light. 

I now challenge you to choose five of the words above you think you will use today and try to use the positive transformation version instead. I promise if you do this long enough the emotions you feel will become more positive. "

Over the years that the English language has been developing, we have decided to create almost two times as many words describing negative emotions over positive ones.

No matter how hard social media tries to be your BFF when it comes to marketing, it still can’t outperform email. Sorry Facebook, we know you meant well, but when 74 percent of Facebook posts are completely missed versus only 22 percent of emails that are missed (according to ReturnPath), it’s impossible to give social media the gold medal in marketing.

Could You Be More Coach-like in Your One-on-One Conversations? | All About Coaching | Scoop.it
Recently I was reading the white paper “Bringing Science to the Art of Coaching.” Authors Jack Zenger and Kathleen Stinnett look at a couple of key questions to explore while examining what research says about the effectiveness of coaching. Consistently, the data shows strong correlations between a leader’s coaching effectiveness and measures of employee commitment and engagement.

One of the hardest things in life is to know when to keep going and when to move on. On the one hand, perseverance and grit are key to achieving success in any field.  On the other hand, telling someone to never give up is terrible advice. Successful people give up all the time. If something is not working, smart people don’t repeat it endlessly. They revise. They adjust. They pivot. They quit.The key question is: how do you know when to give up and when to stick with it? One way to answer this question is to use a framework I call the 3 Stages of Failure.
