  • Where does emotional well being fit in?
  • How do emotions influence our goals?
  • What is the biggest thing that stops us?

Thinking Positively
  • Belief systems paradigms! These all have their
    roots in the subconscious programming that occurs
    from the moment that life begins in the human
    psyche. (Culture is a group habit).

Thinking Positively
  • We think in pictures
  • You know what things look like
  • You watch the pictures change as you go through
    life you adjust your paradigm
  • Can you picture a broken leg?
  • Can you picture a broken mind?

  • If you dont know what your mind looks like, how
    can you change it?
  • What can we use to paint a picture of the mind?

Thinking Positively
  • Paint a picture with your own understanding
  • Only then can you change your beliefs

  • The subconscious mind
  • Emotions
  • Feelings
  • Paradigms (behaviour patterns)

Thinking Positively
  • Whats the single biggest difference between
    the conscious mind and the subconscious mind?

Thinking Positively

    and understand how you learned...

  • To walk
  • To swim
  • You had to establish a paradigm so your
    subconscious could take over (auto-pilot)

    between what is imagined and what is real
  • Who can think of implications for this in sport,
    for example?

Thinking Positively
  • The subconscious mind is an emotional mind
  • Thoughts cause feelings
  • Everything just is until we decide to make it
    what it is (one persons pleasure is another
    persons poison)
  • Its all about our paradigm perceptions

Thinking Positively

  • Never change the goal change the plan!

Thinking Positively
  • Success comes from good judgement
  • Good judgement comes from experience
  • Experience comes from mistakes
  • Mistakes come from bad judgement

Thinking Positively
  • People Look at goals in 3 ways
  • What they know repeat performances and stay in
    the same paradigm
  • What they think they can do
  • In terms of what they want
  • Which of these has emotional content?
  • Which of these stand a better chance of being

Thinking Positively
  • Goals are about increasing your aspirations
    they are about growth

  • Own the goal as if it has already happened
  • Feel the emotional response in your body as you
    own the goal

  • Get excited get enthusiastic think positive!
  • Success leaves a trail! All the most successful
    people in the world create goals
  • Some create goals daily
  • What goal will you set to reach each day?

Thinking Positively
  • Setting mini-goals
  • First have the prime goal in mind
  • Then work towards it in easy steps
  • This leads us into the planning stage...

Thinking Positively
  • Planning
  • Set a goal decide where you want to go
  • Plan a way of getting there
  • Take action
  • Review the plan
  • Take action
  • Repeat 4 and 5 then reach the goal

Thinking Positively
  • Before you do anything
  • Understand yourself and what barriers you
    subconsciously put in the way
  • Understand paradigms
  • If you focus on the doubts and fears, you wont
    get there
  • Focus on the goal and doors will open for you
  • Then recognise the doors when they open

Thinking Positively
  • Financial success has a lot to do with being in
    the right place at the right time - is quoted
    frequently but there is another factor
  • You have to be AWARE that you are in the right
    place at the right time!

Thinking Positively
  • JFK What will it take to take someone to the
    moon, land them there and safely return them to

Thinking Positively
  • NASA (Dr Werner von Braun)
  • The will to do it

Thinking Positively
  • There is a difference between WISHING for a
    thing and being READY to receive it. No-one is
    ready for anything until they believe they can
    acquire it. The state of mind must be BELIEF,
    not mere hope or wish. Open-mindedness is
    essential for belief. Closed minds do not
    inspire faith, courage or belief.
  • Remember, no more effort is required to aim
    high in life, to demand abundance and prosperity,
    than is required to accept misery and poverty.
    Think Grow Rich - Napoleon Hill
