Everybody who has put much energy, time, and resources into the business of their dreams and cannot make it work financially knows how extremely frustrating and scary that can be. And everybody who is stuck in an underpaid, boring job is bound to experience negative feelings on a daily basis. Not to mention the stress of being unable to get paid work at all.
Time to do something about it. The first thing to realize is the fact that all your painful emotions are not “just” about your professional situation. If you take this seriously, you have to go beyond pointing the finger at “the economy” or your jerk of a boss. Start at the surface (what am I feeling right now, including body sensations), and then go deeper. Do you see certain patterns that go through your work life, like quitting too soon or arguing too much? How about your general self-esteem, fear of being visible, or inability to take criticism? Where do these patterns come from?
This EFT script will get you started on your professional healing journey. From there on, follow the trail of your memories, feelings, and, yes, yes, yes, positive shifts. See you at Starbucks, the Apple Store, or an eco-friendly trip around the world.
Even though I am stuck, and there is no way out,
this is what I feel.
Even though I am overwhelmed and confused,
I treat myself with kindness and compassion.
