Experiment with:
Understanding The "When-Then" Game

How many times have we heard people say that when they reach some particular goal or dream then they will be happy. Whether it's getting that promotion, finding true love, losing weight, finishing school, or going into business for oneself, it almost always involves waiting for something else to happen first. This "When-Then" syndrome keeps us powerless and often prevents people from experiencing the good things that are happening right in front of them now.

TOMORROW:

At least once catch yourself in the act of playing the "When-Then" game, or othe variations of it like "If Only Then" or "How Can I Be Happy When?", any time when you find yourself waiting for something to happen. Just notice it, don't judge yourself. Stop and identify one thing in the moment that grounds you in the present. Find out what kind of happiness you're waiting for.

 






Special Encore Presentation:
EQ and The When-Then Syndrome
June 15, 2011

How many times have we heard people say that when they reach some particular goal or dream then they will be happy. Whether it’s getting that promotion, finding true love, losing weight, finishing school, or going into business for oneself, it almost always involves waiting for something else to happen first. We call it the “when..then” syndrome. The bad news: Scientific evidence now shows that the longer you wait for something to occur, the less likely it is to happen regardless of how much you want it. The good news: Don’t despair - the power to make things happen lies within us, is not that difficult to access, and it’s not just emotional, it’s biochemical.. This week on LEI join Esther Orioli, and her featured guest Dr. Julia Shumelda, for a fascinating discussion about and get the secrets to reversing the “when then” syndrome. Find out how one simple EQ skill can change your biochemistry, bolster your resilience, and instill neuro conditions that stoke creativity.
