Mental rehearsal has been used by athletes and other peak performers for many years. It’s a proven method of psychologically preparing yourself in advance to handle challenging situations.
You can use EFT to enhance your mental rehearsal because it is an excellent way of smoothing out any emotional blocks or reactions that could get in the way of your improved performance.
This process shows you how to use EFT to work on changing the way you act in challenging situations such as: interviews, difficult conversations with family members, unpleasant medical procedures, etc.
You can also use it to improve your performance in something you are already pretty good at and would like to get better at.
What do you want to change?
Bring to mind an upcoming event that you would like to handle differently.
As you think of this upcoming situation ask yourself:
- What outcome do I want from this situation?
- How would I like to be in this situation? Do I need to be more relaxed, more determined, energetic, receptive, out-spoken, or something else?
- What qualities would I like to exhibit in that situation? What emotional or psychological states would help me get the results I want?
Notice that we are focusing on emotional / psychological states rather than material resources. Perhaps the situation could be solved by winning the lottery or getting a new boss. If you can’t rely on either of those then you will have to figure out some way of being in that situation that makes better use of your internal resources.
