Hello Autumn !
Our May/June edition newsletter is here and we have some wonderful news.
Firstly I am going to start with a gratitude thank you to all my wonderful supporters and loyal clients. I hope to carry on encouraging and inspiring you as the year goes on.
To all my new supporters – I am here, talk to me and let me support you on your journey to wellness. As the colder season approaches quickly, I thought I would share this little blog with you and hope you gain something from it.
Positivity breads Positivity
The reason I bring this up is a personal one for me. I can feel the change of season fast approaching and to be honest, Winter is not my season.
However as a health coach to others, a motivator, an instructor I honestly need to change the way I approach these 3 month ahead.
Some of you might think this is ridiculous but honestly the cold brings my mood down and my emotions up (ask my hubby…. He might have a lot to say about that). So even I need to remind myself about certain factors going forward for the next 3 month. Positively breads positively and here is why…… if you remember these factors it will help your family and your business.
1. It’s so infectious
When you feel positive and optimistic, it shines from you. People with great personalities and charisma are invariably positive people. By feeling good themselves, they naturally want others to feel good too, and will often go out of their way to help others to achieve their goals. When you think about it, a leader, a coach, a professional and a mom is there to support the client, the team, the company, the family to achieve their goals – so the right attitude is key to selling your service and ideas and making it compelling to potential leads or goals.
2. Positivity rubs off on others
Positivity will help your friends, family, colleagues and co-workers to feel better too, as they will take inspiration from your attitude and approach. This will be greatly valued by your managers and leadership team, as they see the powerful and supportive role that you play within the business.
3. You will stand out – for the right reasons
Walk into a room with a big smile and the attitude that you are there to do a great service, help others and deliver, and you will instantly attract others to you. That energy, that positivity and a proactive approach generates, is highly compelling. Think about someone you know that radiates optimism, and compare them to someone you know that is pessimistic and negative. My one daughter is exactly like this and everyone knows when she walks in a room.
4. It boosts your mood
Our thoughts drive our emotions, and the power of positivity is that, by simply thinking about good things, we can greatly improve our moods, thoughts and actions. Remember, thoughts drive emotions – and thoughts also drive our actions. If we are thinking in the right way, we will act in the right way. Positive thinking expands our boundaries and self-confidence. When we feel positive, we will naturally challenge ourselves to try out new things or take ‘good’ risks.
5. It boosts your creativity
Positive thinking is naturally creative, mainly because it helps you to relax, feel good and think expansively about ways to tackle problems and opportunities, rather than convincing yourself that innovation or risk taking is fruitless, and that you are doomed from the start! That position of calm and openness can really help your creative juice to flow!
6. It helps you build relationships and draws others to you
Most of the favorite people in our personal and professional lives tend to have a sparkle about them. They will focus on the good, look for the best in situations, and be generally optimistic and happy. These people draw others towards them with their positive energy, and by fostering a similar approach. Remember, positivity is contagious, and the more you practice it and tweak your way of thinking towards optimism, the greater the results. This Winter, let’s change it up and have a new approach than we did last year.
7. Tackle your difficult situations in a new way
There are very few truly ‘right or wrong’ situations, in the way that there are few truly or entirely good or bad situations. The way we view something depends on our outlook and perspective. If you can find something good or positive in a difficult situation, you have cracked the secret to developing and learning as an individual. Only by reflecting on lessons learned, and then changing your approach, do you develop. Simply mulling over a bad outcome and doing nothing about it, will leave you stuck in your current position. Again, line up your thoughts in the right way, and the actions will flow. Another great tip is to view a difficult situation from the other person’s perspective, to gain insight and understanding about their position. This helps you to moderate your approach, and dissipates anger when you don’t get your own way. Learning techniques such as compromise and negotiation is also very valuable.
8. It helps you to achieve your goals
For anyone who has ever read ‘The Secret’, the allure of positive and goal-oriented thinking is clear. The theory holds that like attracts like, so that positive thinking attracts the same and focusing on your goals and the good things in life, will attract these to you.
Likewise, focusing on bad situations and negative scenarios can attract those things towards you to – which is why people that we perceive as being lucky, are invariably optimistic and ‘glass half full’ people.
Positivity is always an active trait, and it engenders energy. Welcome it into your life, and you will constantly feel the benefits! I am certainly going to do my utmost to achieve this, this season and I hope you try with me.
Your coach and friend
