Do you get up in the morning and look forward to the day ahead or do you get up and dread what the day is going to bring?
I used to be one of those people who did exactly that. I’d get up in the morning, head up to the city, arrive an hour and a half later and walk in a zombie like fashion to my desk. Sit there entering data and wondering how everyone had been doing the same thing for years.
So I did something about it, I retrained. I was also fairly shy, which people that know me now may not believe. So not only did I have to retrain my skills but also I had to retrain me. I had to overcome a fear of standing up and being heard, which to me was something I thought I’d never have the courage to do.
I used various therapies including hypnotherapy, to build up my self-confidence, self-belief and self-esteem. I guess in psychological terms they would probably describe me as an introvert with an extrovert shell.
I will always have that piece of my past in my mind, the shy individual who wouldn’t say ‘boo to a goose’ as they say (still not keen on geese) but I use this to boost how far I’ve come. I look in the mirror and see that shy person sitting there in the past and show them just how far they’ve come and watch them take a deep breath and say “I can go anywhere I want, can’t I, I just need to believe in me”.
So find that mirror, look at how much that person looking back has achieved. If you want to achieve even more or need help with a specific issue, give me a call and enjoy the snow - if it appears tomorrow. Go build snowmen, make a snow angel and have a snowball fight with family or friends.
