Inspiration and excitement is surrounding me this week, so it’s a quick catch up here to keep you in the loop. I’ve just completed an amazing coaching series with a long distance client who has successfully rewired her brain – her definition of the process, and an accurate one. She’s completely changed her focus in a specific area of her thinking, so that she’s no longer traveling down the highway of negative thinking and reacting badly, but choosing an empowering, positive focus. She literally has created new wiring in her brain – as we all do when we create new habits. There’s so much learning in there I will write more soon. Here’s a brilliant, easy to understand article I came across this week if you want to delve more into the fascinating science of thinking – The Brain at Work, By Adrienne Fox.
My brother Greg and his beautiful wife Nicole, welcomed their baby Mikayla Joy into the world this morning, Sister to Matthew and Cousin, Niece, Granddaughter to the rest of the family – we all love her immediately! Congratulations! Lots of excitement!
Yesterday I spoke at a State Conference on how change can bring positive outcomes – inspiring stuff… as I mentioned in my previous blog, it’s when the door slams shut in our face (and we stop crying and look around) we see the gorgeous French doors (more opportunities, often better ones) that we would have missed otherwise. We choose how long we stand around crying for!! We choose our focus. To say “I can’t help feeling angry” is not entirely correct. Your thinking is keeping you there, so in a way you can’t help feeling that – because it’s in line with your thinking – but you can choose what you think about! Take charge of your brain!! What do you need to focus on to move forward?
I can’t help feeling excited – but I must confess it’s because of my thinking! I’m thinking about ideas and inspiring stuff and believing the best days are ahead of me – why worry about things I can’t change? One thing I can always change is my attitude.
Viktor Frankl said it so well… “The one thing you can’t take away from me is the way I choose to respond to what you do to me. The last of one’s freedoms is to choose ones attitude in any given circumstance.”
Have a great week – look for the inspiration and excitement!
Cheering you on, Kerrie
