The Negative to Positive Emotion Transformation

The Negative to Positive Emotion Transformation | Living & Learning | 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?

Alex Watson's insight:

Nice post. Its a nice exercise to attempt to reframe situations, especially where emotions can run high.

"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. "

John Michel's curator insight, November 9, 2013 9:38 AM

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.

How Google Has Changed Management, 10 Years After its IPO

How Google Has Changed Management, 10 Years After its IPO | Living & Learning | Scoop.it

Google went public 10 years ago today, and since then has dramatically changed the way the world accesses information. It has also helped shape the practice of management. Staying true to its roots as an engineering-centric company, Google has stood out both for its early skepticism of the value of managers as well as for its novel, often quantitative approaches to management decisions. Along the way it became famous for its reliance on exceedingly difficult interview questions — later abandoned — and its “20% time” policy — reportedly on its way out.

 

In honor of the company’s milestone, here’s a reading list of some of the best things Harvard Business Review has published on the company since its founding in 1998.

janlgordon's curator insight, August 27, 9:03 AM

I selected this article from Curatti written by Jenn Herman because I'm love Instagram and if you know what you're doing it can be very effective if it's appropiate for your particular business needs.


Hashtags here and on Twitter are a must to keep the conversation going, attract potential customers and/or a following, learn what your competitors are saying and doing........but if you don't use them properly it can work against you.


Here are a few things that caught my attention:


Hashtags

Instagram allows you to use up to 30 hashtags per post. But that doesn’t mean you should be using that many! Depending on your brand and your audience, you will likely find a sweet spot between 5 and 10 hashtags per post.


Using less than 5 hashtags limits the number of searches in which your post will appear. But using too many looks spammish and can annoy your followers.


Use Relevant Keyword Hashtags

Your hashtags should include relevant keywords that are associated with your post. If you sell jewelry, including tags like #gold, #jewelry, #fashion, and #gemstones would be considered relevant.

These should relate directly to the item or content in your post.
