I was first exposed to this concept a few years ago and then was reminded of it again while reading a newsletter by a Coach of mine, Matt Furey.
Positive tension exists when you have a goal, long term or short term, that will bring some type of benefit or pleasure into your life.
Now, being that it’s a goal, it’s future based.
I rail about too much future based thought, but when used properly, it can be extremely beneficial.
Being future based, it creates a tension, think of a rope that is pulling you along.
A negative tension would be something that you bring bad energy to and that you are looking to avoid, like a confrontation.
So, the key is, how do you create more positive tension in your life?
(A real simple example would be a great meal that you are looking forward to when you are hungry).
And yes, I know how to do this, but if I give you the answers, you don’t learn to the same degree.
