Siemens Gamesa Mental Resilience Masterclass 2

What a great way to get back to what I love doing most following my birthday trip to Dubai last week and that is inspiring and helping people to control the way they respond to negative situations and to improve their mental resilience.
This week I had the great pleasure of running Masterclass 2 for the Siemens Gamesa Rope Access Blade Repair team. What a fantastic time we had. The engagement and interaction were a joy to behold and the feedback at the end was amazing.
I was booked by manager Ben West for the first Masterclass last year and based on the response from the team he booked me for Masterclass 2. The feedback this time is even better so there is a real chance that Ben will book me for Masterclass 3 in the future.
I love what I do
It gives me great pleasure to deliver such effective techniques that help individuals handle stress much more effectively and remove the limiting beliefs holding them back. This Masterclass covered the reframe technique where you learn to find the seed of something positive every time something negative happens in your life.
This allows you to take something positive forward as you move on with your life. I then took the whole group through a relaxation exercise followed by a visualisation exercise where I taught them how to visualise a happy memory.
Everything is stored in our subconscious mind
Each life experience is stored in our subconscious mind, and I assisted them in vividly recreating a happy memory from their past. I guided them through the process, encouraging the use of all their senses to relive the memory as if it were unfolding in the present moment for them.
The subconscious mind doesn’t distinguish between real and imagined events, causing you to feel the same emotions whether you’re just thinking about something or experiencing it.
Consider a nightmare as an example. As you wake from a nightmare, your heart races, you might be sweating, and feel very frightened. However, it’s important to note that these intense reactions were triggered by your thoughts, even though the events were not real.
They experienced a real change in their feelings
The team loved the visualisation exercise, as it evoked happy memories and demonstrated the direct link between thoughts and feelings. Positive thoughts create a sense of well-being, while negative thoughts lead to discomfort.
To bring about change, pay attention to your feelings. Feeling good indicates positive thoughts while feeling bad suggests negative thoughts. Now, you can improve your feelings by intentionally changing your thoughts.
Focus on positive things and experience the positive emotions associated with them. As you consistently do this, you will feel positivity throughout your body. Resist returning to negative thoughts.
If you ever experience negative emotions, examine your thoughts. In most cases, you’ll find a connection to something negative. Change your thoughts to something positive, and you’ll notice an improvement in your feelings.
The power of positive visualisation
Visualizing happy memories can have several positive effects on your mental and emotional well-being. Here are some benefits:
Mood Enhancement: Revisiting happy memories can trigger the release of neurotransmitters like dopamine and serotonin, which are associated with feelings of pleasure and happiness. This can lead to an immediate improvement in mood.
Stress Reduction: Focusing on positive memories can help reduce stress and anxiety. By immersing yourself in happy moments, you divert your attention away from current stressors, promoting a sense of relaxation and calm.
Positive Perspective: Reflecting on joyful experiences can shift your perspective towards a more positive outlook on life. It can remind you that there are good moments even during challenging times, fostering resilience and optimism.
Improved Well-being: Regularly recalling happy memories has been linked to overall improvements in psychological well-being. It can contribute to a more positive self-image and increased life satisfaction.
Enhanced Resilience: Reminiscing about past triumphs and positive experiences can build emotional resilience. It reminds you of your ability to overcome difficulties and face challenges with a positive mindset.
Increased Gratitude: Reflecting on happy memories can cultivate a sense of gratitude. Appreciating the positive aspects of your life can enhance your overall sense of well-being and satisfaction.
Motivation and Goal Setting: Positive memories can serve as a source of motivation. By remembering past achievements and happy moments, you may feel inspired to set and pursue new goals, knowing that success is possible.
Mindfulness and Present Moment Awareness: Visualizing happy memories encourages a focus on the present moment, allowing you to savour positive experiences. This practice aligns with mindfulness principles and can contribute to a greater sense of presence.
Incorporating the habit of visualizing happy memories into your routine can contribute to a more positive and resilient mindset, ultimately improving your overall mental and emotional health.
What a huge change
It still amazes me that 10 years ago when I was 60, I had no energy, no purpose, and no hope. Now 10 years later aged 70 using the Mental Resilience techniques I share in my Masterclasses and my strong faith, I have more energy, more vitality, more happiness, more passion, and more purpose.
Thoughts for the week 

  1. Do you have happy memories from your past life?
  2. These memories are locked away in your subconscious mind and need unlocking.
  3. This week spend some time thinking back over your life and see what wonderful happy memories come back to you and make a note of them.
  4. Then spend some time each day remembering the details and experiencing the positive emotions you experience.
  5. Make this a daily habit and you will improve your life. 

Well, that’s it for this week. Have a wonderful weekend and keep believing.
Warm regards
