3 powerful steps to rise above an emotional downward spiral

  1. Awareness of what is happening to us — that we’re being sucked into a black hole of crappy feelings, mired in negative self-talk, judging ourselves for what we perceive as our shortcomings, and believing that we are somehow inferior and inadequate.
  2. Intention to change how we are feeling — to choose to not engage in that negative (though often familiar) emotional downward spiral and mindset that feels so awful, and to find a better feeling way forward instead.
  3. Devotion to making different decisions and taking different actions to create a different (and much better feeling) outcome.
