The cost of the first mistake was needless anxiety, while the cost of the second one was death. Consequently, we evolved to make the first mistake a thousand times to avoid making the second mistake even once. There are even regions in the amygdala specifically designed to prevent the unlearning of fear, especially from childhood experiences. Think about your own experience. Imagine that, near the end of an otherwise great day at work, you get an ambiguous, potentially troubling email from a boss or client.
Are you most likely to end your day focusing on all the great things that actually happened, or the one possibly negative email you received? For most, that one email quickly overshadows the entire day. It may be no big deal, but even before understanding whether the email is actually negative, your brain disregards all of the positive experiences that actually happened and instead focuses on what might be wrong. Within seconds, your brain decided that this potential threat is more significant than the many positive experiences that have already occurred.
To put it another way, because of how our brains evolved, negative experiences regularly outweigh positive ones. The psychologist Daniel Kahnemann was awarded the Nobel Prize in economics for showing that most people will make more effort to avoid loss than to benefit from an equivalent gain. In intimate relationships, it typically takes at least five positive interactions to counterbalance every negative one.
And for people to begin to thrive in life, positive moments usually need to outweigh negative ones by at least a three-to-one ratio. When you think about your own finances and work, as well as your experiences around success and personal fulfillment, have you typically had THREE times more positive experiences than negative ones? Weakened immune response making you more vulnerable to illness, chronic pain, etc. This stress cycle goes on and on, diminishing your ability to be your best, feel your best, and perform at your best. Tapping involves tapping lightly on acupuncture points with your fingertips.

Page 27 These points on the body were first viewed in the laboratory in the s, and have since been documented using Doppler ultrasound and thermal imaging equipment. Basically, they function like a super highway, passing information between the body and the subconscious mind. Tapping on these points has been shown to produce fast and dramatic results.
In a double-blind study conducted by Dawson Church, Ph. In addition to lowering stress in the brain and body, research has shown that acupuncture, and potentially also acupressure, increases endorphin levels in the body. Since tapping engages acupressure points while also lowering cortisol, tapping, like acupuncture, may allow the body to release the endorphins that put you in a more positive frame of mind, boost your energy, concentration and creativity, improve your sleep, relieve physical pain, and more.

Her work, business, schedule and finances — all of it was draining her of energy, passion, creativity, and well-being. We put blinders on, and try to keep moving forward. If we just do more, we think, or do more faster… What happens, though, is that by depriving ourselves of the opportunity to take an honest look at our lives, work, and finances, we also lose out on the chance to notice The truth is, I had very little freedom and was exhausted from the constant chaos, travel and toxic situations.
Tapping helped me through my denial. That belief had made her feel anxious and hopeless, and as a result, she had abandoned her bigger dreams. Just two years earlier, Nancy had written a book that she knew would help people. After two years of stalling, she did all of this in a matter of weeks. Readers from around the world were soon suggesting titles for her book! Financial solutions and new sources of revenue began to appear — and more have kept coming!
After two decades of studying personal growth, I can honestly say this is THE solution that changed my life. How To Tap One of the great things about tapping is how simple and accessible it is. When tapping, the best place to start is with whatever issue is bothering you most. You may even discover that your headache is related to your finances, but regardless, remember to address your MPI first.
The practice involves tapping on a series of points on the body while speaking your thoughts and emotions. Pick a target. Be very specific about what you want to work on. Measure your emotion or physical discomfort on a scale from 0 to 10, where 10 represents the most discomfort and 0 represents no discomfort at all. Tap lightly with your fingertips on the karate chop point while you say the setup statement three times. Move to tapping through the points illustrated above while using the reminder phrase. A reminder phrase contains the words you use while tapping on the points on the face and the body.
It helps you stay focused on the energy you need to clear. On a scale of 0 to 10, how did the feelings change?

Accepting The Negative First As you just experienced, when tapping, we begin by focusing first on negative emotions and limiting beliefs.
Page 36 what they want to do is feel and be more positive. No amount of positive affirmations will make the dirt in a house go away. You need to first acknowledge the dirt, clean it up, and then move to the positive. Start by picking one belief that feels very true. Read your belief out loud now.

It was clear right away that Mark was under a lot of stress. At 3 AM most mornings, he would shoot up in bed as a painful sensation, like a bolt of electricity, raced up his spine. As soon as he awoke, his mind would fill with things he needed to do that day, which prevented him from falling back to sleep.
The pain in his back would then continue radiating up and down his spine throughout the rest of the day. After just a few minutes of tapping, his back pain decreased significantly. Excited about his pain relief, Mark then shared that he was feeling stuck, particularly Page 47 around his work and finances. In addition to facing tight work deadlines, Mark knew that he needed to deal with several important financial planning matters. Every time he thought about them, however, he felt an overwhelming sense of dread. Have you ever done that—avoided taking action that you KNOW will improve your finances and your life?
I led Mark through several rounds of tapping on his feeling of being stuck. At the time Mark had just returned home from an extended trip to Europe. Was his father planning on cutting him off financially? Kicking him out of the house? Would he face physical punishment for his travel spending? Since his father had never explained what his gesture had meant, Mark had spent the many years since feeling that he was incapable of managing money.
We tapped on that anger for several minutes, ending with a couple of tapping rounds on releasing it. When I paused to check in with Mark, he shared that his anger, as well as his anxiety and dread, were nearly gone. No longer bogged down by that old, limiting belief, or the emotions it had caused, Mark was able to take swift and effective action that brought peace of mind and set him up for future financial reward.
What a difference! However ironic it may seem, the fastest way to move toward the life you deserve is by focusing on clearing one limiting belief at a time. It does take some commitment, though, and the more limiting beliefs you clear, the Page 48 What are you willing to commit to?
