What Are the Differences Between EFT and TFT?

August 13, 2019 2 min read Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. In this video, Entrepreneur Network partner Jack Canfield discusses how non-invasive tapping — a New Age therapy that, according to Vice, “involves tapping yourself over your body to cure physical and mental ills” — can help you control emotions and become more successful. Tapping can restore the “positive flow of energy” your body needs to self-regulate. Canfield draws comparisons between tapping and acupuncture in its ability to provide relief.  There are two different forms of tapping Canfield covers in this video: thought field therapy (TFP) and emotional freedom technique (EFT). The methods employ the tapping of points, though the actual sequences being tapped differ. TFT, in particular, is unique in the sequences that are tapped. Below are a few more details Canfield describes as differentiators between the two tapping methods, focusing on EFT: EFT verbalizes your fear. EFT has more practical applications.  […]

7 Myths About Discipline You Need to Stop Believing

You don’t need to become a stoic to succeed at business, just an effective routine you stick to and adjust as needed. April 1, 2019 8 min read Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Self-discipline is doing what you need to do, regardless of whether you want to do it. Having self-discipline is often seen as the key ingredient to creating a goal-driven life. We’re told that only through strict discipline can we maintain our effort and make the strides necessary to be successful. Without self-discipline, we’re sure to end up acting imprudently and impulsively. Living a disciplined life is the key to keeping ourselves in check.

Investing in Your People Is Investing in the Future of Your Business

Cultivate human capital carefully with thoughtful approaches to wellness, open communication and ties to the larger community. February 11, 2019 6 min read Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. A workplace without red tape, unwritten rules and politics is as mythical as a unicorn. However, today’s business leaders are beginning to look inward to analyze how people experience their workplaces. Inclusive leaders want to know how their team members work and respond to their environments, from human interactions to corporate culture. Now more than ever, leaders must engage and invest in their people. Last May, consulting group Work Institute released the 2018 Retention Report. Its findings predicted that 42 million employees — one in four — would leave their jobs by the end of 2018, costing employers an estimated $600 million in turnover costs. Work Institute also forecasted those annual costs will climb to $680 billion by 2020. Company leaders long have speculated […]

I’ve used the first few weeks to reflect on where I could have done better and how I want to move forward in my business.

You Don’t Have to Be the Loudest Voice in the Room to Make an Impact

It’s time for introverts to change the mold of what success looks like in an extroverted world. December 4, 2018 5 min read Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Diversity and inclusion are proven strategies that yield better financial results and greater, more meaningful innovation. Current discussions and programs focused unconscious bias related to diversity leans toward physical attributes such as gender, race and even fiscal ranking. Yet, truly inclusive leadership must extend beyond what people see to what people feel and how people think. Morra Aarons-Meele, author of Hiding in the Bathroom: An Introvert’s Roadmap to Getting Out There (When You’d Rather Stay Home), and Matthew Pollard, author of The Introvert’s Edge, believe that the workplace does not treat or reward introverts the same as extroverts. “The modern workplace is a challenge for introverts, those of us with anxiety, or anyone who needs a little more control over […]

My latest book, Create or Hate, is not too far away from launching. In it I talk about the self-imposed internal barriers, which I choose to call ‘Hate’, that can hold us back from achieving our true creative potential. There are a number of strategies that can move you along the road to becoming a Creator and not a Hater. One of those is building empathy, which I talked about recently on the blog. Another way you can get there is by being more grateful for the things that occur in your life and towards the people you interact with.
