Welcome to the seventeenth of my 30 daily tips!
Do you have walk-away power? Are you a parent, a boss, someone in charge?
Do you hate it when you end the conversation with words like “You’ll be sorry if you don’t do what I say!”? Or maybe you don’t say it, but you think it? Do you tell someone to do something and they don’t… and you explode? Do you say to yourself, “I knew that would happen!”?
How about trying walk-away power in these instances?
Rehearse this mentally to see how it feels. In your mind, run through a scenario where you were almost bursting a gasket when you told someone to do something, and you “knew” they weren’t going to do it like you said they should.
Who was in control in that scenario? Not you, that’s for sure, right? Well, let’s do something about it.
Go stand in front of a mirror. Rehearse these two little words that could save you a lot of headache. These two little words are: “Or not”.
Say them several times, until they become second nature to you.
Now, think about an instance that upset you. What would have happened if you had said “Or not”.
Here’s an example:
“I’d like _______________ done by tomorrow afternoon.” Then, mentally or verbally, “Or not.”
Do you feel the pressure dwindle?
“Or not” is like an escape valve. Say “Or not” either in your mind or out loud and feel the pressure evaporate.
Let’s take a look at that. You’ve just given someone an order and you feel the conflict from them immediately. If there’s a conflict, that’s when you say “Or not” out loud. You can say it flippantly if you like, but I’ve found that if you look them in the eye and say “Or not” it makes them think. Give them an opportunity instead of an order.
Then, walk away.
Now, what are the consequences? What happens if they don’t do whatever? Well, let’s look at it this way. What happened before when they didn’t? Wasn’t pretty, right?
You have to take care of yourself and release the pressure gauge. Use this method and feel your blood pressure slowly go back to normal.
Good luck with this.
If you like this technique, pass it on to a friend. Watch as their life changes for the better. Both of you will breathe easier.
