What Zone are you in today?

When you woke up this morning, did you feel positive about life, conflicted, or negative about it?

If you were in a positive or high mood (energy) level, and life is going well for you, the chances are you will be experiencing a lot of energy, success, prosperity, and happiness.  Or at the very least, you will be on purpose playing the game you want to play and winning at it.

We call this being ‘In the Zone’ or in the Green Zone.  You are someone who, more often than not, is in the right place at the right time making things go right (effectiveness), with great people, producing great products and having a lot of fun doing it.

Being ‘In the Zone’ is defined by the american heritage dictionary as ‘in a state of focused attention or energy so that one’s performance is enhanced’.

The ability to focus your attention, or concentrate on your goals, is what connects you to and puts you in the Green Zone so that you can work with life and life can work with you. This Zone is really your natural state, you being you, with all your abilities being utilized for good outcomes.

And so anything lower than it, means, you’re not really being yourself, well your positive self, anyway.

If this wasn’t you, and your mood level was lower or more conservative this morning, we call this zone, being in the Yellow Zone, as in ‘caution’ or ‘neutral’. This is where you are conflicted about life, with some things going right, like handling things, and some things going wrong, like handling people and relationships. So you often feel, conflicted, ambivalent, angry, anxious, frustrated and stopped.

Further down from that, if you woke up feeling negative, your unnatural state, we call this being in the Red Zone.  This is where you have a very low mood level, seem to be always in the wrong place at the wrong time with the wrong people and life isn’t going well.  So you often feel upset, guilty, full of regret, chaotic, despondent and detached or absent.

What Zone are you in today?  What Zone do you want to be in tomorrow?

The Zones are the basic areas of behavior and span the spectrum from utter failure and abandonment to super stardom and super performance.

The Zones are the gradient pathway to getting better and living a better life.

We specialize in helping people get better and better and live in the Green and Gold Zone.
