Beating Fear!

Written by Lisa van den Berg

We've all felt it.

The vice like grip of adrenaline,repparttar pounding heart,repparttar 126277 racing pulse andrepparttar 126278 tight throat,repparttar 126279 sweaty palms. Yep, that's what happens to us all when we succumb to FEAR!

Whether it be a spider, a speech in front of an audience, an exam, a near car crash or a bump inrepparttar 126280 night, they all elicit repparttar 126281 same reaction.

When I stop to consider allrepparttar 126282 physical symptoms that fear brings about, I am in awe atrepparttar 126283 autonomic functions of our physical selves. The completely automatic reactions our bodies produce in order to activaterepparttar 126284 'Flight or Fight' response.

Think now, how in a non life-threatening situation, we can take control, with our minds, of not only our physical but also our emotional response to a fearful situation.

I've just re-readrepparttar 126285 amazing book by Dr Susan Jeffers entitled 'Feelrepparttar 126286 Fear...And Do It Anyway!' She talks aboutrepparttar 126287 responses we should actively encourage ourselves to feel, if we want to overcome fearful situations.

The 'Fight or Flight' response to a dangerous situation is one ofrepparttar 126288 amazing systemsrepparttar 126289 body uses to survive. This is a brilliant example of how our subconscious conditioning can save us, without a contemplative thought process being involved.

However, when we allow that same non contemplative, automatic response to govern our everyday lives, we need to do something about it.

We need to realize that any barrier in our mind is there because of past conditioning. The subconscious is like a jigsaw puzzle. The initial pieces get placed in a certain pattern, typically byrepparttar 126290 time we are 6, and get cemented in place. This 'jigsaw' forms our map of life. The subconscious now KNOWS not to touch a hot oven plate as well as KNOWing that you have certain shortcomings that you'll never be able to change!

Yin Yang Relationships - How to Find YOUR Perfect Partner

Written by John Boe

Yin Yang isrepparttar ancient, Chinese symbol for balance. It depictsrepparttar 126276 strong attraction and complementary nature of opposites. Just as magnate and metal attract, while oil and water repel, we too are subject to these laws of nature in our relationships. For example, we have all met people for whom we feel an immediate affinity or for some unknown reason, an instant dislike. We are attracted or repelled by others instinctively. This intuitive feeling goes beyond physical attraction. In reality, what we are responding to isrepparttar 126277 natural chemistry, or lack there of, between temperament styles. Understanding temperament styles will not only have a positive impact onrepparttar 126278 way you see yourself, but it will also enhance your relationship with others. If you are single, it will provide you insight into selecting a compatible partner. If you are a parent, it can dramatically improverepparttar 126279 way you raise your children. If you are a salesperson, this information will significantly enhance your sales effectiveness by enabling you to build trust and rapport quickly.

Hippocrates,repparttar 126280 father of medicine, is credited with originatingrepparttar 126281 basic theory of four temperament styles. He concluded that our behavior style was determined genetically at birth rather than from external influences such as astrology or birth order. Hippocrates identifiedrepparttar 126282 physiology of each ofrepparttar 126283 four temperament styles and concluded that we are born with a combination of four genetic influences: Choleric (Worker), Sanguine (Talker), Phlegmatic (Watcher) and Melancholy (Thinker). According to Hippocrates,repparttar 126284 extroverted Choleric (Worker) was short-tempered and ill natured, but had a dynamic desire for action! The extroverted Sanguine (Talker) was cheerful, outgoing and optimistic, but not very serious or organized. The introverted Phlegmatic (Watcher) was slow and sluggish, but could stay calm, cool and collected under pressure. The introverted Melancholy (Thinker) was deep, sad and depressive, but also a thoughtful, gifted and analytical genius.

It is important to note that we are born into our temperament style and that it is unrelated to race, gender, or age. Our personality is comprised of traits from all four styles but our primary and secondary styles will haverepparttar 126285 most noticeable influence. By reviewingrepparttar 126286 traits ofrepparttar 126287 four temperament styles listed below, you will be able to determine your primary and secondary style.
