La reazione "#freeze- #flight or #fight" è ciò che più mi ricorda quanto, nonostante ci siamo evoluti, qualcosa ci leghi ancora indissolubilmente alle nostre origini #ancestrali. A volte, senza neanche saperlo, siamo vittime di questi 3 comportamenti. Altre siamo i "carnefici" capaci, non volendo, di creare ambienti poco produttivi nei quali chiunque vorrebbe scappare, sparire nel nulla o attaccare e puntare il dito. Vediamo in cosa consiste il "freeze-flight or fight" con alcuni esempi e come allenarci per non esserne schiavi.
Beliefs are beliefs and they can be false: if we think something about ourselves, it doesn’t mean it’s true! Some beliefs lead to passive attitude, leading people to fail (self-fulfilling prophecy). Emotions and actions do not come directly from adversities, but they are triggered by what we believe about the situations. So, let’s discuss automatic beliefs: listen to what you tell yourself every time you feel sad, anxious or angry! If your beliefs are true, focus on how you can change the situation so that it does not become a disaster. Generally speaking, negative beliefs are distortions that you should change. Optimistic people think that failures are not necessarily caused by them, but rather by circumstances. This helps them to not lose hope and energy, to be resilient and to ultimately hold higher probability to succeed.

When I started my Six Seconds certification path, I answered this question 'What is the goal you have here?' with something really business related. The biggest discovery for me was to change completely my focus, as I felt the need to work on myself and my quality of life, before looking at business and to repeat the same pattern again and again. I am a woman, a mother of two children (5 and 2 years) and a wife: this is part of the equation!
