Joy, fear, anger disgust and all their other friends drive our personality, behavior and achievement in business as well as our personal life. The cycle is repetitive. Beliefs (Parental Scripts) trigger Emotions (Child Scripts), which trigger decisions (Adult Scripts) that drive your Actions and create Results which reinforce Beliefs, and the cycle repeats.
The most interesting connection is the bridge between Emotion and the Actions we take.
As a Sales Trainer and Executive Coach I have invested years studying this connection to learn how to help our clients to change their self-limiting behavior into self-growing behavior.
I recently watched a Pixar movie, called “Inside Out” which explained this bridge in a wonderfully well thought out and entertaining way. For anyone who is trying to gain a sense of awareness and understanding about themselves and others, I strongly recommend the movie.
As I watched the movie, two of my favorite quotes came to mind…
“Change your thoughts and you change your world.” – Norman Vincent Peale
“If you think you can do a thing or think you can’t do a thing, you’re right.” – Henry Ford
