WATCH: 'Motivated by Misery?'

Whether we are consciously aware of it or not, we are often afraid that if we don't feel bad about our current circumstances, we won't' be motivated to make changes. In fact, a lot of well meaning folks have probably insisted you feel really bad about what's so in order to compel yourself to do what it takes to feel better. Reminds me of Zig Ziglar's expression "squatting to rise." Anyhow... if it's working for you, great. But if you find yourself unhappy and still not making the changes and advances you want, I hope this will help shift you into a more positive mindset...

If you are new to tapping, it will be beneficial to also watch the first episode in the "Tap Out Your Fears" series -- which explains the basics of EFT -- click here.

As with any of my tapping videos, this is an abbreviated process for releasing uncomfortable feelings and enhancing good ones. Some folks may find their fear dissolve after just one tapping session, but for others, it will take some repetition, bringing the discomfort down little by little each time. (Still others may uncover specific issues that are best addressed directly with a wellness practitioner.) In any event, this brief video should help at least take the edge off the discomfort, freeing you up to enjoy life much more. Let us know how it helped you!

Tapping can sometimes bring up long-buried emotions, which is why I state that, before tapping along, folks must take full responsibility for their own well-being. For more information about that, please read this disclaimer.

Until next time, feel free to tap along with any of the many videos I have on YouTube or the many recordings I have at
