Accountability Challenge Week 9: THE FLIP SWITCH: 17 seconds to change your life
This week whenever you are overwhelmed by a situation, circumstance, or a thought or emotion that is moving you away from the direction of your BIG Goal, I challenge you to draw upon a positive thought, memory or emotion for 17 seconds. That’s it. Just concentrate and focus your energy on looking for ways to feel better in the moment, regardless of what is happening around you.
How do you do this?
Think of something you are grateful for in your life. I encourage you to make a list of things that make you feel really good. Perhaps it’s the memory of the birth of your child; perhaps it’s when you met that special someone in your life. Maybe it’s that feeling you get when you step off the plane and feel the wonderful warmth of that tropical destination, particularly in the depths of a long cold winter. Maybe it’s the memory of the little league home run you hit to win the championship.
Whatever it is for you just do it for 17 seconds right now. When you do it for 17 seconds you override ten times the negative flow of emotions that you previously sent out. Gradually build up the time you spend on this exercise. When you can do this simple exercise for just 10 minutes per day, I guarantee that you will be overwhelmed by all of the wonderful things that you are now attracting into your life.
It is impossible to think & act positive 24 hours a day, However it is entirely possible to do it for just 17 seconds today.
Go to it, you can thank me later.
