Undoing pressure

What is pressure?

Pressure seems to come from the outside, usually from others, as in:

  • "My friends are pressuring me to go to the party."

  • "I feel pressure to lend money to my sister."

  • "My boss is pressuring me to work overtime."

  • "I feel pressured to get my taxes filed on time."

Nothing feels like pressure unless you agree to "the pressure" and are resisting the fear of what might happen

  • "I don't want to risk my friends being disappointed in me."

  • "I'm scared that my sister will blame me if I refuse to lend her money."

  • "I think that I should agree to overtime if my boss asks for it."

  • "I'm just not willing to consider the consequences if I file my taxes late."

To reduce or eliminate the pressure...

Use undoing fear with these example "pressures":

  • "Holy cats and jeepers creepers, I'm so scared my friends will be disappointed with me if I say 'no' to attending their party!"

  • "Holy cats and jeepers creepers, I'm so scared my sister will blame me if I don't lend her the money!"

  • "Holy cats and jeepers creepers, I'm so scared my boss will think I am unreliable if I don't agree to work overtime!"

  • "Holy cats and jeepers creepers, I'm so scared of what will happen if I file my taxes late!"

Remember: deep breaths, loudly, slowly, silly voice, eleven times.
