My mum saw an advert for a masterclass on self-development and positive thinking on Facebook. I’ve been struggling with my mental health recently and she recommended that I go to it. I didn’t know what to expect but if it meant that I would come out feeling better and more inspired, i’m all in! I also need to mention here that it was a free workshop. You didn’t need to pay anything, nadaaa, just sign up via email – easy. So without knowing what I was letting myself in for, I did just that, signed up.
It was in a luxury hotel conference room in London. I arrived a little earlier than I had anticipated but you know, better to be earlier than later right?
As we entered we high-fived the guy who opened the doors for us as a way of building the positive energy that we would later use in the workshop. I thought the room would be full but actually it was about half-full which made getting a good seat much easier.
The workshop was with Tony Robbins’ (this super successful motivational speaker/coach) advisor who used lots of personal anecdotes to describe and motivate us to be successful and life our best lives to the fullest 😁 That’s the kind of energy I like!
It lasted about 3 hours altogether which flew by because I was so engaged in what this guy was saying that time didn’t matter. I made 7 PAGES worth of notes in these 3 hours! That’s more than I used to write in my university classes 😂 but I thought that everything he was saying was of vital importance.
I will summarize here briefly what the workshop taught me as I believe that it was a very informative and clever seminar on how to reach your best potential and let nothing stop you in the way.
Ok are you ready…..
Here we go….
There are 5 guidelines that will help that should be followed every day:
- Play to WIN. This means playing at 100% and putting everything you have in everything you do. After all, it is much better to fail in glamour than to fail in misery right?
- Be Flexible. Flexibility is power, and so is this saying “IF I CAN’T THAN I MUST”. The comfort zone expands and in that is possibility and opportunity.
- Take responsibility for everything you own in life. This is your ability to respond as every situation offers you an opportunity to learn.
- Be a team player – together everyone achieves more.
- HAVE FUN. If you’re not having fun then something is wrong….
I know that this advice is everywhere in self-help books, websites, video tutorials etc but until you actually believe it and start doing it, it isn’t going to work. All these self-help/development things say the same thing but implementing it is a different story.
I came out of the workshop feeling inspired and fearless. Not bad for a three hour free workshop, I have to say. I’m now looking for more opportunities to engage in positive thinking and self-development so I thought I’d share this and hope that I can pass this message onto you. You, in need of guidance and support. I am here for you and I believe in you, that anything is possible! Now go and fight for your dreams and start living them, I will be rooting for you 🎉
Let me know your successes with self-help and any other tips you have that you want to share!
