How Do You Implement What You Learn In Your Life?

 

 

I want you to think about the difference between understanding something conceptually and then applying it.

For example, I'm sure everyone knows, or has heard that we shouldn't take our mobile phones to bed. Yet, how many of us still do? So many of us do the things that we know we shouldn't be doing. We have an academic or conceptual understanding of something that we know is good for us, but we don't do it. There are plenty of examples like this - exercise, meditation, eight...

Whose Agenda Are You Focusing On?

 

 

Whose agenda are you focusing on? It's easy for us to lose focus on ourselves and we often spend time focusing on other people. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, but are you claiming any time back for your own agenda?

Sometimes, focusing on other people's problems is the right thing to do. There's no doubt about that. However, there are times when you must bring your focus back to yourself.

You may be a parent, or a carer, or responsible for looking after elderly parents, but...

Is Fear Or Worry Stopping You From Doing Something?

 

 

Is fear or worry stopping you from doing something?

Often in our lives there are big dreams and ambitions. Things we want to do. However, we have a tendency to automatically think about what if it goes wrong!

This isn't rational. This fear is NOT rational. We're worried about things that haven't even happened. But the fear is so bad it stops us and makes us come up with a million excuses to not do those things.

What is that thing you want to do, yet fear is stopping you?

It's...

What Is Underneath Your Noses That You Are Ignoring?

 

 What is underneath your nose, that you are ignoring?

Underneath mine was a foam roller. They help you when you experience a lot of muscular pain from exercising. As regular readers know, I've been trying to improve my health and fitness over the last year. I kind of see this as my last chance to do something about my health and I need to fix this situation or the coming years are going to be a lot harder.

Since the beginning of the year, I've been going to the gym and have started...

The Brain Rules The Body

 

In this video I want to talk about the important relationship between the brain and body.

I've been reading an interesting book and one of the sentences that has stayed with is 'The brain rules the body'.

No matter what it is that we want to do, the relationship between what we desire and our bodies, when we develop the mindset to make that thing happen, the body falls into place and supports you in achieving that goal.



But where are the limits? I think we set those limits ourselves....

Sven-Göran Eriksson: ‘I should have taken a mental coach to the 2006 World Cup’. Is he right?

 

I was reading an article recently about Sven-Göran Eriksson (England's former manager) where he was asked about his regrets. One of them was the decision not to take a mental coach to the 2006 World Cup.

This was something interesting to reflect on I thought. Sven called it a mental coach but I would call it a coach that helps you with your high performance, who supports you to have the right attitude. I firmly believe that everyone should have a coach in their lives.

Think of it...

What To Do When You Don't Feel Worthy

 

An important subject worth talking about is what to do when we don't feel worthy. Many individuals feel unworthy at some time in their lives.

A lot of young people especially, suffer from anxiety and not feeling that they are good enough. This can lead people to start hating themselves, especially in this day and age of selfies and social media bombardment with people showing all the 'trappings of success'.
