Personal Development Course: Overcome Negative Mindset - 27th February 2015 (Friday)

OVERCOME NEGATIVE MINDSET  - 27th February 2015 (Friday)
 
Executive Summary
 
During the past few years, physiologists have been diligently exploring the functions of the brain (William James, 1884). Many theories stated that our emotions can be altered by a change of mind-sets such as the founder of Cognitive Behaviour Theory, Dr Albert Ellis, who proposed that therapists help people adjust their thinking and behavior as the treatment for emotional and behavioral problems. The rise of different thinking theories such as logical thinking, critical thinking, vertical thinking and parallel/lateral thinking, has indeed given more emphasis to brain and mind development in the corporate training as well. However, many cannot deny that the emotions within individuals can at times, or even more often, play a key role in our daily decision making. Dr. Elizabeth Kubler-Ross said that emotions need to complete their cycles. But for some reasons, adults choose to pent up, bottom up, suppress and repress their emotions. And this is very unhealthy and detrimental to their health and relationship with others. Any unattended negative emotion can lead to psychological issues and may also further lead to physical or mental problems. We are taught well in schools and society on how to process our thoughts logically and critically to solve many daily life and work-life situations. However, we are not taught in schools or by our parents on how to process and communicate our emotions. Comments such as “boys don’t cry” have impacted many men who do not share their emotions easily. Emotions that are under-developed would affect our relationship-building with one another. The psychologists have discovered that our thoughts do affect our emotions, behaviours and decision making. Many of us even have hidden unhealthy thoughts that were sown during childhood time. We need to be made aware of these thoughts and be set free from their influences. Only when we are able to manage ourselves better that we can better manage others and the world around us. Otherwise, many times, we are simply reactive to others and when situations arise, we then make decisions with hidden agenda known and unknown to us. When we experience a total freedom in our mindsets and emotions that have been locked us up for years, the decisions for many issues which we are facing will be crystal clear to us. We will also stop convincing ourselves of the wrong reasons on which the decisions are made.
