Have you ever wondered why you never succeed at any business venture no matter how hard you try? Are you one of those people who have tried their luck at every possible money-making scheme and yet could never seem to hit the jackpot? If your answer for these questions is a resounding “YES!”, then I am sure you want to know why you keep falling short of your goal of financial success and what you can do to turn the situation around. First, you have to realize and accept that most of your failures in business were primarily brought on by fear — fear of rejection by your peers, fear of being scorned by society, or ironically enough, fear of failure itself.
Every time your intuition tells you to take a risk on a particular venture, do you hear a little voice at the back of your mind telling you to beware and not be too impulsive? Does the little voice enumerate all the pitfalls that you may encounter if you persist in your decision to take the plunge in this new project? Then it’s about time for you to recognize that the little voice is nothing more than fear and you need to find ways to manage that fear because it is blocking your way towards success in business.
There are several ways to conquer fear and one tool that is growing in popularity is a de-stressing practice called Emotional Freedom Techniques, or simply EFT. So, what is EFT and how does it work?
Developed by Gary Craig in the mid 1990’s, EFT is a tool used by alternative energy practitioners who believe that resistance to your success can disturb our body’s energy field and we need to balance this energy field in order to open the door for success to come into our lives. Craig created the technique with the intention of providing a means of relieving depression, anxiety, general stress, and other psychological and physical ailments. It involves tapping pressure points on our body while focusing on a specific negative memory or emotion. This action is said to release us from the negative emotions pervading our being and encourages more positive feelings to enter our system.
Some people might think that the problem is due to a lack of sufficient training, talent or luck. Of course, more training and knowledge is helpful to a point, but you have probably already read more books and taken more trainings than you need to be successful. You know enough about what to do. And yet you find yourself holding back, sabotaging your efforts, and doubting your future. It can be so frustrating!
The truth is…
Most people aren’t aware of their own blocks to success and abundance.
Fact: 95% of your behaviour is controlled by your subconscious rather than your conscious mind. The reality is that it is your subconscious obstacles that keep you from reaching your ultimate goals.
At this point you are probably wondering what any of this has to do with your desire to have a successful business venture and how you can practice EFT for business success. We can gain a better understanding of how EFT can help us achieve financial success by relating it to the cosmic Law of Attraction, whose proponents believe that keeping a positive outlook will attract good luck in your life. Similarly, removing negative feelings and thoughts will also remove the barriers that are keeping you from reaching your business goal.
The less negative emotions and memories you have, the better able you are to adopt positive-thinking; hence, the more you use Emotional Freedom Techniques the more you will be able to apply the law of abundance in your life. Because you have released yourself from the bondage of fear, you become less anxious and more ready to make wise business decisions. Pretty soon, you will not only become more successful in business, but you will also be a lot happier in the long run.
What’s best is that this method enables us to use our own healing energies in the privacy of our own home to relieve ourselves of psychological and emotional burdens. We do not have to go through the embarrassment of having to share our failures with others.. Nor do we have to make a nuisance of ourselves by having to consult a professional every once in a while just to complain about imaginary blocks to what we want to have in our business. EFT has, indeed, given us the chance to take matters into our own hands and take the necessary steps towards turning our business failures into shining success stories.
