Non-Verbal Context

NON-VERBAL CONTEXT

There’s a whole lot of stuff out there. From the likes of “The Law of Attraction” to “Think and Grow Rich” all the way through the “Self-help Industry” which speaks a lot about social resonance.

Milton Anderson spoke a lot about social resonance. If you play a C on piano, it’ll resonate and it’ll attract things that sound the same level, play the same level and bounce back the same sound
waves. We know that this happens from a phenomenal level at using light, using energy. There’s something that’s going on and we all communicate unconsciously.

Your physical state influences your mental state. Said another way your body language influences your mental state. Becoming aware of how your body reacts to situations in your life allows you influence yours and others mental states.

We want to become aware of our mental state and our physical state. Be aware of what we are unconsciously communicating. I know that sounds harder than you may have thought. And you’d
be like, well, how the hell do I do that?

Great work on turning that into a how-action based statement. See you are smart and powerful you’ve already started applying what you’ve read in this book!

The real secret to all of this is awareness. The more you become aware of yourself including your personality style. You will start to ask yourself why am I feeling this way?

  • Why am I angry?
  • Why is it disappointing?

You know the dishes are really bothering me. The dishes in the sink have not been washed in two days. Go wash the dishes then. Get that thought out of your head. And you’ll be amazed how your
energy changes.

A lot of people say that when you clean your office, get things off your desk, and you have a clean desk you just feel better. If things around you aren’t such a mess. You feel happier. You feel cleaner.
And that’s part of what I call the gut feeling check. Because there are several factors that really influence your unconscious factors.

I have an assessment where you can run through continuously to see where you’re at. See the things you want to hold yourself accountable too. A great checklist to do once a week. To do with your team to find out where they’re mentally at. If you fail to deal with the thoughts in the back of your mind, you will pay the price in several ways.

Beliefs Assessment Results

Now you’ve finished the assessment, let’s review the results. It’s important for you to make a note of the raw emotions and beliefs you experienced when asking each question.

Everyone’s results will be different. Since their results are based on their personal mask at that point in time. The goal is to become aware of your hotspots so you can implement a correction.

Identify any traits, habits or beliefs that are no longer serving you.

Remember your beliefs and habits are helping you thrive or die and it’s your choice.

Turn your lowest scores into a checklist of tasks that you can set goals around. Everytime I do this assessment I find new systems I can implement into my life to help me thrive.
