Is Fear Holding You Back?

Posted on

Many people have goals (whether or not they call them goals), thing they want to achieve in their life for example relationships, work, family or business.

A huge proportion of those people will not achieve their goals for many reasons, maybe their situation changes, perhaps the goal is not right for them … or there are surmountable obstacles in the way that stop people in their tracks.

So why do people not achieve their goal if the obstacle can be overcome?  Well sometimes the goal is not right for them and they know it – or the fear of achieving their goal itself can be scary.

For example

  1. Losing a significant amount of weight and becoming more attractive to others can be scary for some people with low self esteem.
  2. Moving on after a relationship – starting to date again, worrying that the next relationship will end for similar reasons, e.g. cheating, violence, debts etc
  3. Working in a job that makes you unhappy – but worried to leave incase you don’t get another job – or fear of taking another job and it not working out.
  4. Business – setting up on your own and finding that you can’t get clients or sell your products

There are many situations where fear can hold us back but what can we do about it? Firstly acknowledge the fear then take action – books, coaching groups and 1:1 coaching are all great methods that can help you overcome your fears and help you move forward in life and in business.

My tips is:

  • Acknowledge the Fear – what exactly are you scared of
  • Rate it 1-10 (10 being really scary)
  • How ‘real’ is the fear?
  • Explore ways you can overcome the fear
  • Take Action
  • Celebrate you Success at overcoming your Fear.

There are some great books on overing coming fear and self doubt.

Susan Jeffers book ‘Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway’ is our Personal Development Book Club title this month  (If you are interested – contact us or book your place on Eventbrite)

We also run regular workshops to help you deal with ‘Fear and Self Doubt’ – see Eventbrite for the upcoming sessions.

Goals – Keeping Focused and On Track

Posted on

Having set your goals is one thing but keeping focused and on track is quite another thing altogether.  If you are not working with a coach or extremely motivated to achieve your goal on time it is easy to lets things slip.

Often when we set goals we are inspired and motivate, keen to achieve whatever it is we want.  However it is easy to sit back and expect things to happen, before you know it often time has flown by and little progress has been made.  It’s not that we don’t want the goal .. just that it is not as motivating when having set a goal then you have to actually take action to make it happen

Most goals require some form of physical engagement, whether it be to write a book, lose weight, run a marathon, change jobs.  It takes a lot of thinking and effort to turn your dream goal into a reality and it is so easy to start making progress then become complacent or become side tracked only to find that time has slipped by and your not making the progress you had planned or have lapsed with the progress you have made.

How best to stay focused and on track:

  1. Write your goals down, make sure they are SMART goals and have a deadline.
  2. Next chunk down you goal into smaller, achievable steps – working on one at a time makes it less scary if it is a big goal.
  3. Chart your progress – it’s motivating to see what you are achieving as you go.
  4. Work with a Coach – or if that is not possible join a Coaching Group.  Meet with other people who have goals they are working on will help you feel motivated as you help and support each other.

If you are interested in our Coaching Groups you will find our sessions listed on Eventbrite

These ‘Cafe’ sessions are a great way of accessing affordable coaching whilst being supported and motivated not just by the Coaches but also by fellow delegates.

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.

Personal Development Circle North East
Personal Development Circle North East

“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.

NLP and Personal Development Cafe in Gateshead tonight

Posted on

 

NLP & Personal Development CAFE – Gateshead

 

THE “NEUROLOGICAL LEVELS” FOR LIFE GOALS!

 

Come along and learn NLP in its purest form!

 

Having the theory of a desired outcome of goal is no use if you do not have the right emotional state or required behaviour to achieve it!

 

On this workshop you will learn how to work towards your goals and outcomes by changing your behaviour, your sensory perspective, values and skills.

 

We will focus on Robert Dilts‘ Neurological Levels, where it stands in NLP, and how best to use it to work towards goals and outcomes – adynamic interactive workshop with underlying theory and practical activities to take home!

 

Over the next few sessions we will be exploring various techniques to help you create positive mind states and behaviours to help you achieve what you want from life.

Some of the many techniques we will use include how to:

 

 

 

 

Creating “Well-Formed” Outcomes that develop behaviourial shifts

 

Reframe negative thought patterns into positive behaviours

 

Overcome limiting beliefs

 

Deal with Inner Conflict

 

Creating Compelling & Alternative Futures

 

Move quickly from present state to a desired state

 

Operate from a solutions focused mindset

 

Create a state of “As If” you already had all the resources you need.

 

 

 

 

 

You don’t need to know anything about at all about NLP or personal development, but you will gain a lot from this session even if you are already familiar with this approach – a friendly and fun session open to experienced NLP people and beginners alike!

 

Your training is delivered by Jay Arnott, certified NLP trainer by co-founder John Grinder, Carmen Bostic St-Clair and Michael Carroll.

 

Again, the meeting is open to ANYONE looking for new tools to help them achieve their personal goals or is simply interested in finding new ways to help make positive change.

Tea and Coffee provided.

 

Each month we cover a different coaching topic covering personal development with practical tools to facilitate positive change in ourselves. In the past we’ve explored techniques to improve self-esteem, dealing with fears & phobias, stress/anxiety, coaching, goal-setting, and many more.

 

PLEASE NOTE

Christmas Stress Buster Evening

Christmas Stress-Buster Evening

7 December 2013 t 7pm

This is an interactive session and social looking at ways to de-stress over Christmas and make the most of the festive period.

Christmas can a stressful and sometimes difficult to many people for a range of reasons, perhaps it’s because they can’t be with people they like to be with due to loss/location/separation, maybe they can’t do what they want to do for similar reasons, finances, work commitments and family circumstances can dictate where and how we spend it.

This evening session is looking at how we can take control of Christmas, what it means to us and our perception of it through using personal development tools including NLP & Coaching.

It helps me manage numbers if you pre-pay on PayPal and RSVP for this event on our website.
