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.

Guillaume Decugis's curator insight, November 17, 2014 8:35 PM

Understanding the progress you're making on social media can be rapidly overwhelming: not only are there chances you're on more than one social network but you're also likely to manage pages on top of profiles. 


These tools are great and can help you track progress on a lot of KPI's.


Which is also why they're dangerous. 


Don't get me wrong: I'm an analytical, data-driven guy so I'm a strong believer that data trumps opinions most of the time. But my point is that it's easy to get lost and confused by all the social KPI's you can track:

- followers

- retweets

- likes

- clicks

- favorites

- replies

- lists

- ....

You name it...


As Mark Schaefer put it - perhaps better than anyone else - social media engagement is not a strategy. It's only a path to building brand awareness or increasing leads and sales. 


So while these tools are very useful, you still need to connect your social KPI's with ROI KPI's to demonstrate - or not - that your social media metrics' growth converts into something that has positive business returns


Very often, this will mean creating conversion hooks for your social media audience to become either a subscriber, a lead or a user - which is why you need a content hub for your social media publishing. Two trends are at work here:


1. Social Media Publishing and Content Marketing are more and more overlapping as social helps amplify content and content helps engage followers. 


2. Social Selling and Inbound Marketing are driving more use of social media and more content publishing activity as a way to grow revenue. 


So looking at these tools is a great opportunity to think about your overall goals and how to connect social media and content marketing in a coherent strategy to achieve ROI.
