Life Coaching in Thailand
I hope you feel magnificent.
It’s 2020 and we are into the last quarter.
Are you happy with your progress throughout this year or are you getting the same results as last year? I know you want to improve the quality of your life, so here is something important to consider.
The oldest part of your brain is wired for survival and this means;
1) Your brain likes your life as it is – it wants you to remain the same.
2) The brain wants to store calories and save energy.
3) It remembers past events to predict your future.
This means that until you upgrade how your brain functions, it’s almost impossible to get new results in any area of your life.
Imagine going to a beautiful beach with your friends to enjoy a fantastic warm water ocean swim. It’s calm and dreamy. Idyllic and safe. Everyone can swim, yet some friends only dip their feet in the water’s edge, perhaps venturing up to their knees. They inform you that many years ago they nearly drowned, so it is impossible to go into the ocean above their knees. (Survival brain – controlling their life)
Others, with a different mindset, venture further out, yet only as long as they can touch the sand with their feet and can easily get back to shore. They tell you they are scared of being in deep water. (Survival brain, staying safe, does not like being uncomfortable, – controlling their life)
And a small group heads out to a pontoon 250m offshore. Half of them turn back at the 100m mark thinking ‘this is crazy’, ‘why am I doing this’, ‘I can’t do this’. (Survival brain sabotaging new attempts and / or processing and remembering this event for future reference – controlling their life) And only a couple make it to explore the unknown and experience a new perspective.
In each scenario, it is the person’s brain that is controlling the outcome. Everyone could have made it to the pontoon, yet only a few do. Fear, doubt and worry cause people to stay well within their comfort zones. This is why people never really hit the goals they desire in life. The brain signals you to stay in control, to stay safe. Your brain holds onto old patterns and keeps you stuck in familiar territory. The brain sabotages efforts to pursue something that has never been done before.
When you understand this, you can start doing things to rewire your brain and thus get new results in your life. If you want new results with your wealth, health or relationships, the only way to truly have them is to rewire your brain – body function. Develop a new mind-body program. If this is something that interests you, contact me today. I am starting a new group to delve deeper into understanding how to live the life you want. If this feels right for you – call or email me now.
This week I encourage you to challenge your brain and get out of your comfort zones.
