Big Moves

Uncategorized Jun 24, 2021

BIG goals are the kind of goals that you set for yourself with are totally possible, but the very thought of them create a fearful feeling inside you.

At the time of writing, I have just set a goal to pop over to the United States of American to search for my long-lost uncle, whilst visiting some of my business associates over there. I have not wanted to visit before. 

The very fact that I had a weird feeling come up for me, was even more motivation for me to practice what I preach and do something about it, so I am currently doing all the things I need to do to be ecological about creating changes in my life so that I can get on with going on a magical adventure on which I can make a few dreams come true.

Rules for Being Human

Rules for Being Human

 

  • You will receive a body. You may like it or hate it, but it will be yours for the entire period this time around.

 

  • You will learn lessons. You are enrolled in a full time informal school called life.  Each day in this school you will have the opportunity to learn lessons.  You may like the lessons or think them irrelevant or stupid.

 

  • There are no mistakes, only lessons. Growth is a process of trial and error experimentation.  The ‘failed’ experiments are as much a part of the process as the experiment that that ultimately ‘works’.

 

  • A lesson is repeated until it is learned. A lesson will be presented to you in various forms until you have learned it.  When you have learned it you can then go on to the next lesson.

 

  • Learning lessons does not end. There is no part of life that does not contain its lessons.  If you are alive, there are lessons to be learned.

Coaching versus Therapy

coaching Feb 08, 2020

All too often in the field of coaching does the client mistake the coach for a psychotherapist. A therapist, by definition, is a practitioner that helps a client to ‘feel’ better through ‘healing’ or ‘curing’. This being the case of psycho-therapists who are charged with the responsibility of healing and curing the mind of its disorders, dysfunctions and/or dysphoria, often leads to confusion about the role of a life coach.

A coach, by definition, is a vehicle that transports from one place to another, meaning the Life Coach, is responsible for assisting or facilitating a client from where they are presently, to where the client wishes to be, a destination specified and agreed on by both from the initial engagement of coaching.

With these distinctions in mind, it is important for a coach not to fall into the realm of psychotherapy, which can often lead to being caught up in trying to ‘fix’ the client. From the perspective of a coach,...

Forget That!

science Feb 05, 2020

Your memories were created and stored and remembered by you...

You took in what you needed to take in and recall what you believe you need to recall...

In neuroscience, we study ‘forgetting’ to understand how best to forget things...

Sometimes you need to inhibit and stop yourself doing certain behaviours that are harmful to you... ‘thinking’ is a behaviour... and some thinking isn’t helpful to you...

Too often do I hear people speak about their thinking as if it’s being done ‘to’ them by their brain as if it’s not their brain and they have no influence over what goes into it or what comes out of it... #passively living this way doesn’t seem to be a good thing...

If your mind isn’t yours, then whose is it?

In marketing meetings, the more intelligent beings understand that with a few minor tweaks to communication, the mass consumer mindset belongs to corporations and governments that know that people prefer...
