How do you remember experiences?

Ever had an activity you knew you were made to do but did not do it because of an exact of similar experience?

Have you thought about that experience and why you think it hinders you in the present moment?

Our minds work by connecting emotions with experiences. We are so brilliant in the choices we make. I think we all agree that there are experiences we have been through that we could not control. There is crucial importance in the experiences we can control. The ability to maximize our will power shall determine the impact we have on others and the quality of life we live as individuals.

Once we categorize a good experience, the “feel good” hormone – endorphins are released in our brains and we want to experience that good experience again. Once we experience bad experiences, our brains release a stress “fight or flight” hormone – adrenaline.

For example, imagine you have a biology class presentation. You are prepared for it but you start of the presentation with a lot of sweating and a lot of mumbles. You are sure to bomb the next 5 minutes and instead of sharing to your professor that you have anxiety speaking in front of people, you immediately run off after completion to save yourself the anguish.

If you’ve had similar experiences, that it okay. Chances are you will have more of those experiences. But what if you were about to transform that energy into a hormone less “flight or fight”. Perhaps you would still be anxious and sweaty in your palms because you are convinced you are in danger. The information you tell yourself is the way you can process a different feeling to an entire experience. If you are a true bad ass at this, you will channel the same feeling you get presenting a public speech with a walk on the beach. Imagine yourself being that sure and unstoppable! How amazing would that be?
