Confidence. Resilience. Motivation.
The three qualities that the participants of the course I am currently assisting on - The Life Event - are currently exploring ways of developing more of.
I have seen the three leaders of the course - Daryll Scott, NLP developer; Leon Taylor, Olympic silver medallist and top mentor; Mike Weeks, world class free-climber and extreme coach - do their thing many times before and as usual, the participants found in themselves more of what they were looking for on day one.
On this second day, I suspect many of them will blow their own minds.
The presenters used a great turn of words yesterday to describe how they would develop more of their desired traits:
Use your brain on purpose.
In this world, there are a lot of external influences on us that we can't do much about. However, we also act like our thoughts and feelings happen to us in the same manner as the external events.
Judging by the work I've seen yesterday and over the course of many years. I doesn't have to be this way.
You can be boss of your experience more than you probably know.
I kinda do what the presenters of The Life Event are doing for athletes and chronically injured, hopeless individuals.
I help them find ways to use their bodies on purpose.
As a consequence, they also develop new levels of confidence, resilience and motivation.
Confidence they can do what they like with their body. This is a big deal in sport and life.
Resilience to injury and the ever-changing environment around them.
Motivation appears spontaneously when things are easier and more enjoyable for you because you are more in charge of your own experience.
The way you use your body at times may feel like it is beyond your control. A lot of the time, this isn't the case. It's just that you don't know how to use it well.
It's also worth pointing out that using your brain on purpose will help you use your body on purpose and vice versa.
They aren't really separate things.
Essentially, it's about using yourself on purpose.
Do yourself a favour today. Put aside a few minutes to take charge of how you're using your body just a little more today, just to show yourself you can.
