The APA isn’t quite on board yet, but they won’t be able to deny the results for much longer, as so many studies are underway to prove the effectiveness of using EFT for just about anything having to do with emotions, physical issues, or performance issues.

Reasons Athletes Don’t Reach Their Goals – by Loren Fogelman

Here is a great article for athletes! – author is Loren Fogelman

If strength, speed and endurance are the foundation for high performance then focus, confidence and your mental game is the cement firmly holding it together.

Athletes know why they ought to follow a specific training model, the best strategy to improve performance, and the plan to put it into play. So if the tools for high performance are readily available, why don’t athletes stick with the plan to get the best results? The simple answer is motivation.

Like Jeopardy, now that we know the answer, you must ask the right question.

How hungry are you to reach your full potential?

The answer to that question offers valuable insight. You’ll finally understand whether you’re going to do whatever it takes for high performance. Clarity about your “BIG WHY!” is the treasure map. Once you understand how much you are willing to give then you can decide to stick with the plan or make modifications.

The flip side is you might not like your answer. You might not be as committed as you say you are. To turn things around, to deepen your commitment to high performance, means we’ll have to dig deeper to discover what is holding you back.

Uncovering the blocks then leads to one of three choices.

  • Accept things as they are
  • Modify your expectations
  • Remove the underlying blocks

The Emotional Freedom Techniques is the best tool for clearing the underlying blocks even if you don’t really know what they are for you.

The Emotional Freedom Techniques adds another dimension for overcoming physical and psychological challenges. Blocks affect your motivation. Lack of motivation impacts performance. Your motivation is directly related to your resistance.  EFT is an ideal solution for clearing the obstacles impacting performance.

EFT, or tapping, is like acupuncture but without the needles. It works on your meridian system which has to do with your energy. It is also known as qui in Eastern philosophies.

The easiest way to explain energy is to think of a water hose with a kink in the hose. Even when you fully open the faucet, only a trickle of water might get past the kink. Once you take the kink away the water flows freely. Well, that is how qui works also. If you have some sort of block, which you might not even be aware of, reaching your goals will feel like an uphill battle. Once your energy is corrected, then the resistance leaves.

Before you begin tapping ask yourself:

  • If I were to guess, what do I think is interfering with my performance?
  • What would I have to give up?
  • How would I feel if I tried my hardest and didn’t see any improvement?
  • Who would I be disappointing?

Now that you’ve answered those questions, let’s dream.

  • What struggles and negativity would I have to release to improve my performance?
  • What qualities do I need to be fully committed?
  • How would things be different if I reached my performance goals?

Now you have valuable insight for hidden obstacles can surface. The answers to these questions are highly personal. After you answer them they will be your tapping statements. Begin with the negative ones, then transition to the positive statements.

Two types of motivation exist, external and internal. Competing because someone else has expectations for you is an external factor. Rarely, however, will it help you through the toughest moments.

Your personal desire, the internal motivator, is your motivator for full commitment. Clarify your reasons for competing. Connect with your burning desire, the reason you choose to excel and the purpose it offers you. All the top performing athletes know their BIG WHY! Understanding your drive for excellence fuels you to continue pursuing your dream through the toughest most challenging moments.

As a competitive rower, I quickly realized winning was not my primary motivator. GASP! Yes, that was an important goal but it was not the one which got me out of bed at 5am to head down to the lake for an early morning row around the lake when it was still dark and cold outside.

I had to dig deeper to figure out my burning desire. It was about connections, commitment and fitness. A high level of fitness and training with other rowers to perform well together when competing was my real driving force. My competitive nature was fueled by the relationship factor.

Awareness of your motivation keeps you engaged through thick and thin. Sometimes a block arises, but it does not have to stop you in your tracks. The block is an indicator of an internal conflict, usually opposing values. The Emotional Freedom Techniques is the perfect tool to sort through the opposing energy. Removing the block is necessary before you can determine your next steps. Remaining in a struggle is optional. Dissolving the conflict, so you can maintain momentum toward your performance goals, is easy with EFT.

Challenge: Become aware of you BIG WHY! Write down what you love most about being an athlete, playing your sport. Now consider why the things you listed are important to you. It doesn’t have to be deep. It just needs to be your reasons, not what you think are the right answers.

Are you an active athlete because someone else has those expectations for you and you don’t want to disappoint that person? Athletes who compete for the wrong reasons don’t really have their heart in the game. Training, and competing, for external reasons doesn’t help you get past the tough moments. What are you sacrificing to make someone else happy or approve of you?

Wonders of EFT – a sort of “Mental Floss”

This short and concise statement is from a Brad Yates publication, The Key To Success.

I think you will see its wisdom:

“Funny thing about EFT – it works wonders – but only if you use it.  Just like dental floss, which will clear the gunk out from between your teeth – but not if it just sits untouched in your medicine cabinet.  EFT, when used, will clear out the emotional and mental gunk.  You might think of it as mental floss…”

Fear of Dental Procedures & much relief with EFT!

Here is a very short and helpful posting from www.eftuniverse.com:

 

“This Is Going To Hurt Just a Little Bit” is the title of a poem by comic Ogden Nash. It includes these lines: “Some tortures are physical and some are mental / But the one that is both is dental.” Fear of dental procedures is a major deterrent to people getting proper dental care.

New research shows that EFT is phenomenally effective for dental fears. Dentist Graham Temple conducted a study of fearful patients facing procedures such as fillings, extractions, and root canals. With psychologist Phil Mollon, he describes the results in a recently-published paper in the peer-reviewed journal Energy Psychology: Theory, Research, and Treatment. Patients whose fear level was 6 or higher on a 0-10 SUD scale were offered a 10-minute EFT session. The average SUD was 8.03 to start, but only 3.03 afterwards. Statistical analysis showed that there was only one possibility in 1,000 that the results were due to chance. This points to how EFT can be used in primary care settings like hospitals and clinics where patients are suffering the most. When fear is at its peak, even a very bried EFT session can bring significant relief.

Consider giving a copy of Dr. Temple’s study, along with other papers found on the EFT Universe research pages, to your doctor or dentist.
