What is Emotional Freedom?

Picture this situation you are on your way home from a great day at work and your favourite song comes on the radio
 
It’s been a fantastic day so what do you do
 
You do what any reasonable person would do in this situation, you start singing, a little bit of dancing, you’re in your own little world loving life
 
Until you see the guy in the car next to you looking at you. This is where you could go from feeling great to wishing you were invisible
 
You might turn the radio down back into your seat and try to look serious mature thoughts. Ascribing too much importance to what other people think
 
It’s not that you won’t give any importance to other’s opinions myself included in this. Where it crosses the line is when you care what absolute strangers think or people that are insignificant in your life
 
If it was up to someone else how to achieve our dreams and progress most of us not achieve anything in our lives
 
You need to base your decisions and goals on you and not other people. Too many people base their success and goals on the opinions of other people. Friends, family, co-workers
 
You need to stop worrying about what other people are thinking about you and your decisions. It is a very dangerous habit it to have as it encourages you to move with the masses or conform to the group
 
The emotional freedom technique will help. Now, this is not designed at making you arrogant. It resolves and dissolves the emotional reaction you have to and about other people places and things
 
To be an independent and self-confident person you need to start being more independent
 
When you start to care less about what other people think you start living more. This doesn’t mean you don’t care about people
 
Emotional freedom technique resolves and dissolves what you think other people think
 
Have you ever thought to yourself?; ‘he or she makes me feel guilty’
 
Who is doing the feeling?
 
You are!
 
It is your reaction to what they have said or done or not done that you interpret guilt. Most people get it wrong about you or what you can achieve anyway
 
The Beatles were rejected
 
Michael Jordan didn’t make his school basketball team
 
Richard Branson has had more failed businesses than successful ones

If they have worried about what others have thought you would never have heard of them. Your feeling is created by yourself. Other people do not have the power to make you feel a certain way. You choose to feel that way 
 
using the emotional freedom technique will help you to overcome the fear of rejection
 
Overcome your fear that they will think that your goals are too big and not possible for you to achieve them
 
Overcome any emotional reaction to something in the past that they might have said or done
 
Overcome your fear of putting yourself out there 

and taking the much-needed action in achieving your goals
 
Develop your own things of self-worth and deserving 
 
With the emotional freedom technique 

it could be something as simple telling yourself
 
Even though I’m afraid of rejection
 
Even though I’m afraid that others will think my goals are too big for me and I could never achieve them 
 
Even though he or she said x or did y and it made me feel

Even though I’m not worthy of great success

even without being specific in all your detail, 

emotional freedom technique will still work
 
If you’re afraid about what you think others think about you doing Emotional Freedom Technique you can EFT that away too
