Change your Head Talk

Head Talk is that inner voice which constantly gives us negative messages.  Changing your Head Talk means changing these negative beliefs and transforming the unhelpful messages you give yourself into positive messages. 

To help you do this you can:

  • Notice your conscious beliefs that stop you achieving your dreams, and create new beliefs that allow you to achieve them.
  • Write a list of affirmations and read them every day.
  • Seek help from a psychologist to make your unconscious beliefs conscious, so you can work with them.

Get Real

This involves becoming authentic, genuine and totally true to you. To achieve this requires answering three important questions - What are my values? What is my purpose? What is my vision? 

To help you do this you can: 

  • Spend time and effort getting to know your own personal values and creating your own personal vision.
  • Choose your own purpose.
  • Create a vision board that comes from your own inner being (not society's impositions).
  • Seek the help of a coach to help you find your values, vision and purpose.

My Life Lesson Learnt in Sardinia

While working on luxury yachts in the Mediterranean, I found myself with some rare, but much-needed time off while we were moored at the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda in Porto Cervo, Sardinia.

The town is a favourite stop-off point for some of the world’s uber rich and famous, and it’s not unusual to see international celebrities benefitting from a little retail therapy there! Exclusivity and expense are the dominant impressions when you walk around, so you can imagine how surprised I was when, while browsing in one of the most upmarket shopping malls in the world, I found several shops offering lovely items I could actually afford!

The lesson here is that we shouldn’t be intimidated by outward appearances, reputation or title. Very often, if we are brave enough to look beyond the daunting exterior, we may well be pleasantly surprised at what we find.

Conflict to Co-Operation

No matter how similar people are, we are all unique. There will always be some ideas, issues, situations etc. on which we disagree. This is to be expected. Conflict in itself is not bad. Knowing how to deal with it, is what counts. If we know how to cope with conflict, we will learn to be less fearful of it, and so not try to avoid it. This creates healthier, more harmonious relationships.

In this talk I focus on the fundamental skills and attitudes you need to deal with conflict and understand that, contrary to popular belief, dealing with disagreement or conflict is far more important to a relationship than not having disagreement or conflict at all.
