Personal Development meeting in Durham

Posted on

Monthly Personal Development Cafe starting March 2014

 

The Personal Development Cafe is both for those people new to personal development and for those already exploring coaching and neuro linguistic programing (nlp). The café sessions are designed to be informative, stimulating and compliment other Personal Development Circle North East’ workshops.

“If I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.” Gandhi

As a member of the Personal Development Cafe part you will:

– Discover the benefits of using personal development techniques
– Learn tools for confidence, motivation & the power of your mind
– Gain an understanding of the science and behind personal development
– Feel motivated and supported by the group
– Progress to become the person you want to become

Café sessions are monthly and run for 2 hours. In a relaxed and informal setting the sessions will start with a coffee followed by “some food for thought” – an informative and stimulating talk. Then it’s time for “café chatter” to open up discussion. We finish with some “clearing up” and self-reflection which is for your eyes only.

You are welcome to “drop in” on individual café sessions, but you may find benefit from regular attendance.

No matter what your goals and dreams may be or at what level you are to achieving them. With consistent motivation, a deeper understanding of the power of your mind, good clear teaching, and a friendly group of people behind you, you will gain a deeper understanding and belief in yourself from which change will naturally develop.

You can choose from our Café menu over the following dates

March  8th    Start thinking right

Start right thinking

There’s a battle going on in our minds, a daily conversation with ourselves which if it’s going well, can make our day and if it not well “I might as well not even bother !!!!” (does this sound familiar?)

The true fact is that our bodies and behaviours are affected by the way we think. We think in patterns that develop habits, our brain remembers these habits and like a well-worn path, they are stored in the neurology of the brain.

More often than not we talk down to ourselves, talk ourselves out of things and limit our opportunities before that have even entered the room.  When was the last time you told yourself how amazing you are?

The good news is that our brain can learn a new path, and the more often we choose a better path the more worn it becomes until it becomes a new path of better thinking.

So in this session we are going to explore a little bit about how the brain works, the physical effects of both positive and negative self-talk and write ourselves some affirmations to take home, so we can start the day on the right path.

Goals Goals Goals

Posted on

The secret to success often rests with setting great goals … but why should we set goals?

 

We spend so much of time thinking about what is happening in our life – good and bad – and often wanting things to be changed but not sure what we want instead.  Whatever aspect of our lives it is (family / friendships / career / wellbeing / money etc) there is something that we would want to change.

So how does change start?  Well a good place is in setting goals!

There are many benefits of goal setting.  

Taking Control

Goals are like having an in-built Sat Nav – your goals will take to in a direction you have chosen and for which you want to go.  Setting goals is about articulating your vision (whether in words, pictures, symbols or a combination of).  Your vision will take you on a path to reality and when you have achieved the goal, you improve your life and become a better version of yourself – your confidence and self esteem will increase as you appreciate and acknowledge your achievements.

 

Focusing on the important things

When  you set goals you are sorting out your priorities – deciding what is most important to you and what can wait.  By focusing your time and efforts on what you want to achieve you are more likely to achieve your goals.

 

You will make reasoned decisions

Once your Goals have been identified when opportunties come along you are more likely to make the right decisions in line with your goals and medium / long term plans.

 

You are more likely to achieve you goal sooner

If you remain focused on your goals and keep them in mind.  You will have a focused approach to life and are more likely to concentrate your time, finances and energy with less likelihood in being distracted.

 

Be confident, be enthusiastic

When you set goals they need to be specific so you can measure your progress.  As you near your goal and monitor your profess this will improve your confidence, keep you motivated and enthusiastic about achieving the final stage which marks your success.

Making progress

Each time you achieved one goal, you will want to set more goals in the knowledge you can get there.  Subsequent goals are often harder to achieve and require more effort.  As you have achieved some goals there is no reason why you cannot go on to bigger and better things with higher goals.

 

You are closer to success

Every step you take towards your goals is a step nearer to success.

Remember to reward your efforts along the way.

 

How to set goals

This is easy.  Setting goals that motivate and inspire you to achieve is a tad harder.  Come along to our Coaching Cafe Goals workshop  – set some compelling goals and start on your journey to success.

In the Coaching Club workshop I will take you through the art of setting goals, identify which goals are key to your personal success right now.

Will questioning our values make us happier?

Posted on Updated on

Will questioning our values make us happier?

The decisions we make in life are often dictated by our values and beliefs.  Most of your values and beliefs would have came from those around you as you grew up; friends, family, teachers, peers.  The values and beliefs that we have are what have shaped us into who we are today.

If you do what you have always done, you will get what you have always got.  Anthony Robbins.

The values and beliefs we have are what empower us to take action but also what holds us back at times.  If you look back at your life you can often recall where they came from.  Write down what your values and beliefs, ask yourself where they originate from and look for evidence to back them up.

For example being told you are clumsy by an aunt when you were a child may have caused you to grow up believing that you are clumsy.  Interestingly when you look back at your life you are most likely to recall events and occasions when you dropped or damaged something.  However by turning things around and looking for situations where you have not been clumsy, dropped things etc and focus on times where you have can evidence this is not the case your views may change.

Your values and beliefs could be holding you back from succeeding in life; impacting on decisions you take.  For example, not starting a new relationship because you were hurt previously, not seeking career progression as you are worried your peers may resent your success and your relationships may suffer, not losing weight because you have been unsuccessful previously.

Just because you have been unsuccessful previously does not mean that you are a failure, it just means that you may need to look for other resources or skills to help you achieve what it is you are seeking to do.

What is it that makes you happy?

Take some time out with a pen and paper;

  1. Write down 10 things you love doing.
  2. Put the list in order as to the things you enjoy doing most at the top of the list.
  3. Write down next to each answer at least 7 things about what it is that you love about it.
  1. Now write down 10 things you hate doing.
  2. Again put the list in order and put the things you most dislike doing at the top.
  3. Ask yourself what it is about each thing that you least like doing and why, try to come up with 7 answers for each.
  4. Ask yourself if there is any evidence to support why you dislike the things you hate doing?  Has something been said or done to make you feel this way.
  5. Now ask yourself what 7 things could you do to make doing each activity more enjoyable.
  6. Do you feel differently about them differently now?
  7. Are you willing to give them a go?

This is more than just identifying a list of things that you really like doing and the things that you hate doing. The reasons why you like or dislike something often comes down to the values and beliefs you have.  This is normal, as is the desire to challenge our ways of thinking so that we can live a happier more fulfilled life.

The same process applies when you are setting goals.  The secret to great goal setting is more than just writing a list of ‘wants’.  Take time to set goals around things that you love to do and this will make them easier to achieve.  If you come across challenges do not give up, look at the challenge and explore ways to get around them, is the challenge down to your values and beliefs?  If so, look for evidence to disprove a limiting belief and identify ways that you are able to move forward.

When you live your life in accordance with your values and beliefs you will be happy and fulfilled.  If you have limiting beliefs that are not serving you it is fine to question where you got the belief from and seek to replace it with a more empowering belief that will serve you better.

When should you make a start?  No time like the present!  Why put off what you can do now?

Why The Law Of Attraction Really Works

Posted on

Why The Law Of Attraction Really Works

Whatever thing you do or whatever business you are running you might be heard about The Law of Attraction. That law simply says that you attract into your life whatever you think about (consciously or sometimes unconsciously). Your dominant thoughts will find a way to manifest. The masters of the Law of Attraction say that if you study how to use it in a good way you’ll never need anything in life.

Before I try to explain in details how The Law of Attraction works, who use it and why logically you could use it too, I’d like to explain you that if you want to begin using the Law, you must be able to suspend your disbelief. I mean that if you’re pretty sure that the Law of Attraction is just a nice story that is impossible to apply in your life because of this and that…..and hardly will work for you, I can surely tell you that you won’t get anything of it so just don’t waste your time and continue to keep your eyes and mind closed. However, if you can suspend your disbelief and try to have “what if…maybe?” attitude, you will discover how things are working for you and for the world under the Law of Attraction.

You might be heard that all in the world is energy even us, and we all work as magnets and we attract different energies ….OK this you might believe or not it’s up to you. I would like to speak about clear examples from our history Einstein, Walt Disney, Bill Gates used the most powerful and potent form of energy known in the universe –the thought. This mean that whatever is going in your mind is what you are attracting into your life right now. All those famous people discover that the thought has frequencies and send out magnetic energy that attracts. So you become and attract what you think about most and here is the challenge that the thought with the strongest energy can apply to your life and become reality (can become things!).That’s why they had such a great success in the things they really believe and put all their energy and thoughts into before even the world believe them.

Most people think about what they don’t want to in their life (it’s easier)…but by default they attract more of the same. If your thought is combined with strong emotion (good or bad) you speed up your process. Have you noticed that those that speak more about illness have it….and those that speak more about positive stuff, prosperity have it.

Whatever you are feeling right now is a perfect reflection of what’s in process of becoming. Only your persistent thought and emotion can speed up the process when you will see it in the reality. And you set exactly what you are feeling so happy feelings will attract more happy circumstances. Visualizing positively that you have it all that you need and want will make your conscious to believe it and the universe will respond to that energy. Feeling grateful will create more things in your life to be grateful for. It is really that simple but we need to control our thought in every moment and this is the complicate stuff.

You can take stepping back and looking in your life from different point to become aware of how you are unconsciously using and have used the Law of Attraction already. Remember the story of your life how you were here than you were there doing this, why you meet this person and what did you think, what happened. I was very surprised at the beginning while looking back at my life I found how strong the power of the Law of Attraction can be (of course the Law of Attraction was depending how strong was my thought.)

I know that with the Law of Attraction can raise some tough questions that don’t seem to have good answers-things that had happened in our life and we never wanted they’ve happened by our thoughts. I would say, however, that these problems aren’t caused by the Law of Attraction itself but rather by the Law of Attraction as applied to objective reality. This entire reality is your creation. We should feel good about that. Feel grateful for the richness of your world. And then begin creating the reality you truly want by making decisions and holding intentions. Think about what you desire, and withdraw your thoughts from what you don’t want. The most natural, easiest way to do this is to pay attention to your emotions. You can make the experiment yourself by thinking about your desires that makes you feel good, and then thinking about what you don’t want makes you feel bad. You’ll notice that you feel bad when you’re thinking about something you don’t want. Then you just turn your focus back towards what you do want, and your emotional state will improve rapidly.

Good luck with your life and let me know what great things you mainfest with the Law of Attraction.
