Enjoy this TIME TESTED CLASSIC!
And welcome to the May, Neville Goddard Mastermind 2013. Today we’re going to explore 2 differences that will make all the difference between your failure and frustration, and success and happiness.
And we’re going to cover 7 steps to make sure that you are definitely doing it right, so that you get the results that you want.
So let’s dive in with the difference between feeling good, and feeling it real.
One of the biggest things that we notice with people, is if you’re seeing your body in the movies that you’re making. If you’re seeing your body when you’re being congratulated, when you are in a congratulatory conversation, that feels “good”.
People put their bodies in movies because it feels good.
The problem is that it DOESN’T FEEL REAL.
And the reason it doesn’t feel real is this. If I were to reach my hand out to you right now and congratulate you on making a good decision, you would see my body getting closer to you, you would see my hand, you might see your hand, but you’re not going to see your body.
Power Point: If you construct a congratulatory conversation where you see your body, it’s going to feel good, but it’s not going to feel real.
So the take away to begin with, between feeling good and feeling real, is how you’re constructing your scenes. Do not make movies with your body in them.
Those will only feel good. But if you do your sessions, if you’re making movies in your mind that feel real, and that impacts you in a real way, you wont include your body.
But you will include mine if I’m the one reaching toward you to give you a congratulatory handshake or high five. So, let’s dive into the second difference, that makes all the difference.
KEY SUCCESS QUESTION: (from the pack) What is the difference between an emotion and a state?
- What is it?
- What’s the difference between an emotion and a state?
- Do you KNOW the difference between the two?
Are you ABSOLUTELY CLEAR clear on the difference (between emotions and state)?
(Answer truthfully because your happiness and your success at this is going to depend on it.)
So, by the way, when people aren’t totally clear on the difference…
When people are not totally clear on the difference between an emotion and a state, they tend to do one of out two things. One, they really struggle.
(KEY POINT) They try to make themselves feel good (and be positive) all the time. Even when they’ve been overwhelmed, tired or had a bad experience. They’re focused on oh I’ve got to make myself feel good right now (so that my wish becomes fulfilled). That’s not what Neville says to do.
The other thing that people do when ever they don’t know the difference between an emotion and a state, is they have a feeling that their sessions and their life, they’re trying to force things to happen.
- And we want to eliminate both of those problems for you today.
- And we’re going to do that by helping you get the difference between a state and an emotion.
- And giving you the 7 steps that we take to make sure that we always keep all that perfectly lined up.
So a state, let’s say the state is could be, “the best selling author”.
The emotion would be being confident, or being afraid. There’s a huge difference. You see it’s like if we were to go out in the garden right now, and if I were to toss a basketball towards you okay, nice sunny day, I toss a basketball towards you, it’s easy for you to catch it.
We’re going to compare the basketball to a state. It’s east to describe a state and to really get immersed into a state.
On the other hand, if we’re trying to control our emotions, that’s like trying to catch a marble (that has been shot at you with a slingshot).
If you were out in the garden and I whizzed a marble at you, it would be almost impossible to catch. Because emotions are tiny little things.
I really, to me they’re the demons in the bible. They’re hard to catch, they’re hard to spot, they’re little tiny things. Happy, sad. Fearful, comfortable.
On the other hand a state is something STEADY AND SOLID that you can construct.
- A state has scope.
- A state has depth.
And so we want to explore, and we want to notice the difference between emotions and state. Remember, emotions are things like fear, anger, desire, pride. They’re like marbles. You drop them in a little thing of water and they ripple all through your mind and through your life.
And again that state on the other hand, the state is like a basketball. It’s easier for you to see, it’s easier to get a grip on, and you can start defining your own state. The state of the amazing speaker. Now, I want you to think about this. I have created the state of the amazing speaker.
POWER POINT: YOUR STATE contains emotions, both good ones and bad ones.
And so the state of the amazing speaker, is what decides how those good and how those bad emotions fit into my life. Because the amazing speaker does have confidence, the amazing speaker does experience fear, the amazing speaker is curios. He experiences all these emotions.
But the state of the amazing speaker determines how they’re going to show up in my life. How long they’re going to be in my life. How big they are, how long I feel them, the impact that they have.
And the state of the amazing speaker is going to determine, to a very high degree, what those emotions inspire me to do. The state of the amazing speaker changes how I relate, and if you adopt the state, how you relate to specific emotions, and how you relate to the world.
And so there are three mistakes that people make because they get stuck on emotions.
The first MISTAKE they make is they try to SHIFT emotions.
They try to shift from negatives to positives. So they’re noticing, am I in a negative state or am I in a positive state. And if I’m on a negative one, I want to shift to a positive one. Remember Neville wasn’t a positive speaker. Neville talked about creating states. He wasn’t all that big into managing emotions.
The second mistake is people try to ELIMINATE emotions.
They try to eliminate negative ones. Oh I’m going to be positive all the time. No, I’m not positive all the time. But if a fear shows up or anger or frustration show up, the state that I’ve developed, the amazing speaker, the loving husband, the best selling author, those determine how I’m going to relate to those emotions. So I don’t have to try to eliminate negative ones, you can’t do it.
And the third MISTAKE THEY MAKE…
…which sort of sums up the first two, if you don’t have a distinction between emotions and states, you get fixated on controlling emotions. Instead of, constructing and creating with amazing states.
And so, we’ve discovered the difference between feeling it good and feeling it real, that’s the first one.
Feeling it good is making a movie with your body in it, that feels good but it’s mostly distractive. But feeling it real, experiencing that congratulations through your own eyes, as I reach my hand towards you, you don’t see your body, you see my body. That’s feeling it real.
You’re learning the difference between emotions and states, and we’ll be exploring that MORE AND MORE in the 7 special steps.
As we continue to explore the 7 special steps, we’ll be exploring again the further differences between emotions and states, and how to make sure that you’re focused on constructing with emotions and not trying to, I’m sorry, trying to construct with states and not control emotions.
And as you get how important this is, even right now, is what you’ve learned so far will change your life. Because you’re getting what most people, they’ve no clarity around the difference between emotions and states and feeling good and feeling real.
So let’s dive into the 7 steps.
Always ask yourself, am I constructing states that are experienced as real and not just movies that are about feeling good.
Remember, it feels good to see your body being congratulated, but it feels real to see your hand only being shook, or a high five when you’re congratulated. The whole idea remember, is to create scenes that feel real. Not just feel good. Now as you do that, notice, here’s a couple more distinctions here for you.
It “feels good to make affirmations” because they lead to emotions. I am the best. Yeah that feels good, BUT IT FEELS REAL TO HEAR CONGRATULATIONS.”
(When someone says to you) You are the best. You’re amazing. It’s totally different (than affirming it for yourself.).
Who is it that you want to HEAR congratulations from…
… and hear them congratulate you? That feels real.
On the OTHER HAND, walking around, I am, yeah having to say it all the time is forcing it. Hearing it being said to you, feels real.
