How To Be Charming: 2 Secrets Backed By Research

How To Be Charming: 2 Secrets Backed By Research | All About Coaching | Scoop.it
Want to know how to be charming? Research shows we all do something that's getting in the way. Here's how to fix it.
Ariana Amorim's insight:

Love this practice: 

1. This practice involves picturing a series of people and sending them good vibes. Start with yourself. Generate as clear a mental image as possible. 2. Repeat the following phrases: May you be happy, May you be healthy, May you be safe, May you live with ease. Do this slowly. Let the sentiment land. You are not forcing your well-wishes on anyone; you’re just offering them up, just as you would a cool drink. Also, success is not measured by whether you generate any specific emotion. As Sharon says, you don’t need to feel “a surge of sentimental love accompanied by chirping birds.” The point is to try. Every time you do, you are exercising your compassion muscle. (By the way, if you don’t like the phrases above, you can make up your own.) 3. After you’ve sent the phrases to yourself, move on to: a benefactor (a teacher , mentor, relative), a close friend (can be a pet, too), a neutral person (someone you see often but don’t really ever notice), a difficult person, and, finally, “all beings.”

However, what’s even more surprising than their marked differences is how powerful positive psychology and life coaching are when used in harmony. In order to truly understand how these 2 compare, let’s start by gaining a better understanding of what they really entail.

Reframing Your Dark Side: Embracing Your Shadow Is Key to Genuine Mental Health

Reframing Your Dark Side: Embracing Your Shadow Is Key to Genuine Mental Health | All About Coaching | Scoop.it
One of the major themes of this site is that “all emotions serve a valuable function in our lives.” This includes not just the positive, “feel good” aspects of our mind but also the negative, “feel bad” aspects of our mind.
Ariana Amorim's insight:

How you respond to your emotions is more important than the specific content of your emotions – and that’s what true “emotional intelligence” is about.

How Multidimensional is your coaching? ‹ http://coachfederation.org/blog | All About Coaching | Scoop.it
How many times have you heard clients say, “I’ve been trying to figure this out but I’m going ’round and ’round and getting nowhere?” When this happens, clients are often seeing only a part of the picture and focusing solely on the mental or thinking parts of themselves. A multidimensional approach helps clients access imagery, body responses, sense of purpose and feelings, allowing them to make choices and take actions that integrate all parts of themselves. This additional information promotes fast and lasting change, as well as movement that aligns with all aspects of their being.

How to Use Positive CBT On Children and Adolescents - | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

Positive cognitive-behavioral therapy, or Positive CBT, is a strengths-based approach with positive psychology roots. The focus is not on what’s wrong with the client, but on what is right with them. A Positive CBT therapist focuses on building a client’s strengths and uses strategies that clients can use to help cope with their problems. Strategies include building resilience, setting goals, hope, and optimism.
