Guinness, Irish Music and Mental Resilience

What an amazing week this has been spending 5 days in Ireland. It was a wonderful trip to run my Masterclass in Dublin for Dennis O’Connor and his sales team at HPC Group, then a flight down to Killarney to speak at the Allied Merchants Buying Association Conference.

The HPC sales team really enjoyed the Mental Resilience Masterclass and the feedback was really positive. They were an excellent group and interacted brilliantly throughout the day. It was great to share the powerful techniques to help them perform better under pressure and to handle stress more effectively.

I ran a shorter session for the Allied Merchants event but still had time to take them all through the relaxation technique and taught them how to Visualise professionally. The response at the end was wonderful and I am visualising more work in Ireland.

Killarney is very beautiful, and it was such a pleasure to see this amazing beauty as well as thoroughly enjoying delivering the two sessions. Many of the comments I received were their amazement at how much I have achieved in 5 short years.

A mindset change and a changed life

It was 5 years ago when I was in debt, living with my mother and decorating for a living. Now I am travelling the world and inspiring international organisations. This has happened due to my mindset change and the power of positivity.

I came across this article from Jack Canfield a great exponent of Positive Thinking and he describes very well why it works and how you can benefit from it.

Jack Canfield – author Chicken Soup for the Soul

“I think you’ll agree with me when I say:

The power of positive thinking is remarkable.

Can you guess what the most successful and happy people think about all day long?
The answer is quite simple…

Healthy, happy people think about what they want, and how to get it, most of the time. In this way developing a positive attitude can truly change your entire life.

When you think and talk about what you want and how to get it, you feel happier and in greater control of your life. When you think about something that makes you happy, your brain actually releases endorphins, which give you a generalized feeling of well-being.
As a result, you develop a positive attitude.

How to Think Positive

Based on many psychological tests, happy people seem to have a special quality that enables them to live a better life than the average.

Can you guess what it is?

It’s the quality of optimism!

The best news about optimism is that it is a learnable quality. That means you can learn how to think positive by taking adopting an optimistic mindset.

By the law of cause and effect, if you do and say what other healthy, happy people with positive attitudes do and say, you will soon feel the same way, get the same results, and enjoy the same experiences that they do.

The Power of Positive Thinking

Optimists seek the valuable lesson in every setback or reversal. Rather than getting upset and blaming someone else for what has happened, they take control over their emotions by saying, “What can I learn from this experience?”

Resolve today to learn how to develop positive thinking and a positive attitude toward yourself, the people around you and your life.

How Do You Train Your Mind to Think Positive?

Training your mind to think positive can be achieved by leveraging a simple concept. Your mind has enough bandwidth to only focus on one thought at a time. All you have to do is keep it focused on uplifting thoughts until you form the same types of neural pathways that are created when you establish a new habit.

When a negative event occurs, remember that it’s your response that truly determines the outcome. Always look for the positive response or optimistic lesson when such events take place.

Positive affirmations are positive phrases that can be repeated over and over to teach you how to get rid of negative thoughts and encourage a positive attitude.

How Positive Thinking Can Help You

Developing a positive attitude can help you in more ways than you might realize. When you think positive thoughts, you don’t allow your mind (conscious or subconscious) to entertain any negative thoughts or doubts.

After you learn how to think positive, you will notice amazing changes all around you. Your brain will actually begin to operate in a state of free-flowing feel-good hormones called endorphins, which will make you feel lighter and happier.

You’ll also notice a major boost in confidence and will feel more capable of taking on new assignments and challenges that might have previously been outside your comfort zone.

By reducing your self-limiting beliefs, you will effectively release your brakes and experience growth like you never imagined. Essentially, you can change your entire life simply by harnessing the power of positive thinking.”

Thoughts for the week.

1. How do you respond to negative situations?
2. Are you able to see the positive in a negative situation?
3. If you can choose a positive response to a negative situation the outcome WILL be different to choosing a negative response!
4. The outcome when you choose a positive response is always better than choosing a negative response.
5. This week make a conscious effort to be aware of your response to everything that goes wrong and see if you can change a potential negative response into a positive one.

Well that’s it for this week have a wonderful weekend and stay positive.

Warm regards
