The Power of Change

the power of change

The Power of Change is powerful. Change can either be forced on you through life’s circumstances, or you can elect to change of your own free will. Change is the only constant in life, so making friends with change will go a long way in eliminating unnecessary stressors.

Change is what happens when effort meets with resistance, and you continue anyway. – Dr. (h.c.) Jennifer L. Breakey

My life’s work has been rolled into this life-changing program. I have extensive personal experience in each of these areas, and through knocking my head against many a brick wall on more than one occasion, I have learnt how to let go of the past, no matter how difficult at the time, and how to release toxic thinking, feelings, emotions and incorrect perceptions of the meaning I give to life. This program will help you:

  1. The Power of Loving You – love yourself, no matter what
  2. The Power of Your Emotions  – master your emotions and create the life you want to live
  3. The Power of Your Mind – change the programs that are running your life and rewire your brain to empower you to be successful and prosperous

The external events in your life is a direct correlation of the thoughts you think, the feelings you feel and the perception, interpretation and meaning you give to life. If you are not happy with the status quo, with the way your life is right now, then something has to change, and that something is someone, and that someone is YOU. Nobody is going to change for us. You are going to have to shift perspective, change the way you look at things, or simply walk away from what is not making you unhappy. One thing is for certain, unhappiness, fear, shame, guilt, unforgiveness, doubt, misery, self-sabotage …. and all the other negative destructive emotions are simply a lack of love.

To step into the life you want, you have to be willing to let go of the past, eliminate toxicity in your life (such as negative thinking, destructive emotions, relationships, behaviors) and learn to live in the present moment.

From this space of freedom you can create a future based on various possibilities.

The word love is used far too flippantly these days. You can love your car, your cat, your house, your job, your neighbor, your kids, your spouse …. you get the gist. But what is loving yourself all about? The Greeks have six different words they use for love:

  • Eros, or sexual passion
  • Philia, or deep friendship
  • Ludus, or playful love
  • Agape, or love for everyone
  • Pragma, or longstanding love
  • Philautia, or love of the self

To have esteem and self-compassion is not about being so introspective to the point that we no longer see anyone else. It is about having self-awareness, self-love, a sense of worth and purpose in the world in a non-selfish manner, aware of  yourself in relation to others. However, tilt the scales too far, and you stand the chance of falling into the trap of becoming a narcissist (a person who has an excessive interest in or admiration of themselves). In the words of Aristotle – all friendly feelings towards others are an extension of one’s feelings towards ourselvesPhilautia is fundamental to be able to experience love to the fullest. Jesus, in the Christian Bible, says – love your neighbor as yourself. By default then, this means that you cannot love others until you truly love yourself first. It matters not what your religious or spiritual background is. Love is universal and not excluded from anyone. To truly love one’s self is not as easy as it sounds. Over the course of our life time, we all encounter situations that shape us, and not always in a positive and healthy way. It is to this that we must focus, release, let go of the past, and create our own lives our own way. As William Shakespeare put it so succinctly – to thine own self be true

The difference between the mind and the brain is often confusing. The mind is associated with the brain, and the two terms are often used interchangeably. The brain is considered to be physical matter, and the mind is considered to be mental. The brain is composed of nerve cells and can be touched, whereas, the mind cannot be touched. To learn about the one you need to learn about the other.

You have a conscious and a subconscious mind. The subconscious mind is a databank for everything that is not in your conscious mind. It stores your beliefs, your previous experiences, your memories, and your skills. Everything that you have seen, done or thought is also there. In this masterclass, we will work at the level of the subconscious mind. The subconscious mind typically requires between 22 and 66 days to be reprogrammed. If you are over the age of 31 it could take twice as long. The reason for this is that your subconscious mind is 95% programmed by the age of 31 with all your habits, routines and beliefs. It takes commitment and dedication when tapping into the resources of your brain. We will also look at the model of the mind that Freud determined. Sigmund Freud used the term ‘subconscious’ in 1893 to describe associations and impulses that are not accessible to consciousness. He later abandoned the term in favor of unconscious, noting the following: ‘the only trustworthy antithesis is between conscious and unconscious.’ Freud divided human consciousness into three levels of awareness: the conscious, preconscious, and unconscious. Each of these levels corresponds and overlaps with his ideas of the id, ego, and superego.

The mind is powerful. It allows you to direct your thoughts towards a desired outcome. Focus on success and you attract success. Focus on fear and failure and you attract fearful situations and failure. The power of the mind allows you to make your thoughts work for you, not against you.

Master the power of your mind so that it no longer masters you.

Emotional intelligence (also known as emotional quotient or EQ) is the ability to understand, use, and manage your own emotions in positive ways to relieve stress, communicate effectively, empathize with others, overcome challenges and defuse conflict.

According to Daniel Goleman, an American psychologist who helped to popularize emotional intelligence, there are five key elements to emotional intelligence:
 
  • Self-awareness
  • Self-regulation
  • Motivation
  • Empathy
  • Social skills

The difference between IQ and EQ, is that IQ tests measure your ability to solve problems, use logic, and grasp or communicate complex ideas. EQ tests measure your ability to recognize emotion in yourself and others, and to use that awareness to guide your decisions.

Emotionally intelligent leaders are aware of their own emotions, and intuitively aware of the emotions of others. Through their empathy, emotionally intelligent leaders factor in emotions when presenting information, making assignments or otherwise engaging with their people. Emotionally intelligent leaders are engaging, respected and take other people’s points of view into account without feeling threatened in any way. The great news is that while some people have EQ as a natural talent, for those that don’t, EQ skills can be learned. People can learn how to interact more effectively at work and increase their emotional intelligence.

You can change your thinking, your emotional responses, your behaviors. No longer will you be living in the shadow of what others say about you. You will be able to be yourself – no matter what. You will have a clear focus on what you want to achieve out of life, how you want to show up every day, and you will no longer be subject to the controlling powers of others.

New neurological pathways need to be created – ones that help you create new habits and beliefs, that support you and your life’s goals, rather than ones that are destructive, self-sabotaging and keep you repeating old patterns and living in a loop of self-destruction.
