The Average Business Person Misses 60,000 Opportunities To Build Confidence Everyday

New York, NY (PressExposure) March 12, 2011 -- Human beings have an average of 60,000 thoughts a day. Every one of these thoughts is either confident and effective towards one's goals, or takes them further away from that success. From regularly surveying her audiences of thousands of businesspeople, speaker Sharon Melnick, PhD. found that most people report at best only 50-70% of their thoughts are confident and effective towards their goals.

Thus, for the vast majority of people, at least 20,000-30,000 of their daily thoughts are worried, doubting, or negative.

The bottom line - these thoughts create stress, interfere with performance in work, and cause unhappiness. When considered on a scale of millions of people, this points to an enormous waste of human potential. That's energy and potential urgently needed to improve the way we do business, foster our health, or role model for children.

"Each thought is like a command sent down from the captain of a ship to the crewmembers below the deck, says Dr. Melnick. "And, each thought directs the muscles and cells of your body to act." If a person has low self confidence in their work, they won't have the energy or persistence to succeed at learning new skills. In their work relationships, they might take things personally, get reactive, and lose their concentration. In meetings they will not speak up with valuable ideas.

In contrast, a highly confident person would take the lead and find solutions to problems. They would ask for the fee or the promotion that will help them earn what they are worth. The result is they will be more financially secure and they will model confidence better for their children.

With over 10 years of research at Harvard Medical School, Dr. Melnick has developed techniques that give people fast and lasting confidence. In fact, according to Dr. Melnick, "In the next hour after reading this, a person will have another 2,500 thoughts. With the right skills, they can make a few or hundreds of thoughts more confident - and that creates momentum and positive energy to be even more confident."

Her techniques have been called "California Closets for the Mind" because they give you a sense of order and control over your thoughts. They have given clients the confidence to land their biggest deal ever within weeks, to accelerate their promotion and to have the peace of mind that comes from clearing that mental clutter.
