Mental Models“New insights fail to get put into practicebecause they conflict with deeply heldinternal images of how the worldworks...images that limit us to familiarways of thinking and acting. Thediscipline of managing mental models isa major breakthrough for people. Peter Senge The Fifth Discipline
Phobia vs. Fear• Phobia: Excessive and unreasonable fear – Mental disorder – Exists in 11% of population• Fear: Common anxiety and doubt – Exists in 110% of the population!
Why Is Change So Hard? • Logical, left brain controls language and conscious thought (5% of total thoughts) • Emotional, right brain controls images and sub- conscious thought (95% of thoughts) – We are wired to fear • Sub-conscious mind designed to protect us from (real) danger or (perceived) emotional threats – Desire to avoid emotional pain (aided by limiting beliefs) keep you from taking action towards your goalsReduce the resistance (negative emotions) to move in the direction of your goals
What is Tapping?• Application of light pressure (5-7 times) using middle and index finger onto a series of 8 acupuncture points• Top of head – Center/top of skull• Eyebrow – Beginning of eyebrow closest to other eyebrow• Side of eye – On bone on outside corner of eye• Under eye – One bone 1 inch below pupil• Under nose – Between bottom of nose and upper lip• Chin – Between bottom lip and bottom of chin• Collar bone – Down and to side of breastbone (where a man ites a tie)• Under Arm• Side of body 4 inches below armpit
Reminder Phrases• Reminder Phrases remind you what to focus on while tapping – I’m nervous about this talk – I hope it goes well – I might not say it right• Reminder Phrases can change as you go through a “round” (tapping each of the 8 points)• Frequently the intensity or focus shifts after tapping on only a few points• Stubborn thoughts and emotions can take many rounds: use various reminder phrases as the experience changes
Why Does It Work?• Tapping creates an electrical charge that runs along/through connecting tissue (known as meridians in Chinese medicine)• Follows the path of least resistance until it hits a blockage, which holds the memory of the primary trauma• Tapping sends a message of safety to the memory that is not congruent with the emotionally- arousing memory.Source: The Genie on Your Genes, Dawson Church
Identify the Root of Fear• Identify the fear – I’m afraid this talk won’t go well• Why – Because I might not “do it right”• True Fear – I’ll look foolish• Keep going – each overall fear has many aspects – Fear of flying is fear of… • Take-off • Landing • Turbulence • Crowds • Confinement • Losing Control
Fear of Failure• What do I fear will happen – what does fail mean?• What would it mean if that happened?• How would I feel?• It is not the belief/thought that stops you, it is the feeling about the belief that impacts you!
