How to Improve the Human Factor in Business

When you take a look at a simple business model or a business plan, there is no reason why anyone in business should not succeed at what they are doing!! It is, after all quite simple.

Who rules your life – you or your emotions?

You may well be thinking, “that’s a strange question to ask, of course I rule my life!”

For the majority of people that is not the case. Research claims that up to 95% of people live an unconscious life, this means that they generally react to what going on around them, without taking the time to think about how or why they are reacting in that manner.

We all know what emotions are – happiness, sadness, joy, and pride to name a few.

But have you ever thought about it any deeper than that.

What exactly are the point of emotions?

Emotions are your body’s way of communicating to you – sometimes it feels pleasant and sometimes it feels uncomfortable. It doesn’t mean that you have to respond to it immeditately, but it is wise to pay attention to it though.

So why does your body use emotions to communicate with you?

As you may be aware there are two parts to your mind. There is the conscious and unconscious. The conscious is the part that you are aware of, it is the part where you run through your thoughts and you process ideas. Your unconscious deals with all the other stuff. It deals with your breathing and running the body, the actual processes that go on behind learned behaviour, and filtering all the information that is around you. When needed it then passes what you need to know to your conscious mind.

The amount of information that the unconscious can process is approx 2,000 000 bits per second, whilst the conscious, can only deal with a fraction of that, around 126 bits per second. The conscious mind is limited to the amount of information it takes in, otherwise we would never achieve anything. If we identified and notice every tiny things that going on around us it would take an hour or so just to take two steps and we would feel overwhelmed.

What this means is that the unconscious has a lot more information at its disposal. If there is something that we need to be aware of, to keep it simple it will make you aware through an emotion.

Let’s take a look at two emotions so you can see what I mean.

  • Anger is just a message to say that something that you hold as important like a rule or expectation, has not be meet or has been broken by someone else or by yourself.
  • Fear is anticipation that something is going to happen, and asks whether you are totally prepared and ready for it?

So next time your emotions starts talking to you, stop, before you react unconsciously, and think about it for just a few seconds.

What is this emotion trying to tell you or what do you need to be aware off?

Then take action in a controlled manor that will create results that are beneficial to you.
