My Training Philosophy - The Way I Work With You.
Steve Jobs once said, “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life“
With this in mind, I always try to “lead from behind” in my sessions, so that you can find and adopt your own comfortable philosophies and not be hijacked by others. By this I mean that I have no particular set of views, or philosophes that I believe you need to agree with, before I can help you. I know what works for me, but I am sure that many things that I believe and many things I do will most certainly not work for you. I will offer you a tasting menu of practical and theoretical information to sample, and I hope that some of it resonates with you and that you can comfortably reject much of it, because it does not feel right for you. Many times, being free to reject what doesn’t feel right is as important as accepting new ways forward. In short, I want you to effectively choose how to live your own life and not to become a clone of me.
The emphasis is very much on showing you how to use all that you are, good and bad, positive and negative, to build resilient self awareness. By learning how to accept all that is you, rather than trying to tune out the bits that you don’t like, you become free to trust yourself, build patience and learn to be more realistic and compassionate. This in turn allows you to learn how to respond in new creative ways to life’s challenges, rather than to react in the same old way as you have always done.
Being in control of yourself rather than being run by old beliefs and philosophies that have been forced upon you, is a much more successful and comfortable way to lead your life. Clarity of thought, focus, personal productivity and creativity are just some of the benefits that follow when you feel that you are living by your own rules.
So, if you are looking for a guru who will tell you how to think, what to think, when and how to exercise and what to eat, you have come to the wrong website. If, on the other hand, you want someone to lay out useful information for you to consider and guide and support you in your quest to live your own life, then this website is definitely for you.
