Setting and sticking to intentions to achieve your goals
How many New Year's resolutions have been made and followed for one week before reverting back to old behaviours? Obviously, willpower alone is not enough to change behaviour and habits.
During this talk on self mastery, attendees will learn proven techniques on how to stop self sabotage and how to increase self awareness so they can make their mark in their professional or personal lives.
Delivered in person in Australia or via Zoom to any audience in the world, ‘Self Mastery’ can be delivered as a short speech, keynote or workshop at your next event.
"Why do I keep doing this?"
Many of us feel like we’re trapped inside a fun-house when it comes to our behaviours. We set out with the best (and healthiest) of intentions, yet we trick ourselves into doing things that we know aren’t good for us, in turn draining our limited energy, crushing our self-esteem and delaying achievement of our goals.
While the choices we make are anything but rational, the irony is these unhelpful behaviours were, at one point, useful to us - whether they soothed us from trauma, or helped us push through the pain of peer pressure.
Are you a self-saboteur?
For example, if you were raised to do productive work but only under pressure, you might grow up leaving assignments to the last minute, unconsciously thinking that’s the only method to produce a top quality result.
Or you may find yourself conflicting with work colleagues or in relationships, yet you’re unsure of the reason why or how to fix it.
Whether this happens in our career, our diets, our finances or our relationships, the inviting routine of self-sabotage can lead to exhausting frustration and keep us at status quo, quashing hopes of transformational self-growth.
What about willpower?
Willpower is wonderful! Problem is, it lasts about as long as a sumo wrestler in a marathon and is only beneficial when things are going right.
Not convinced? Think of a time when you were happy and in control. Did you want to engage in the self-sabotage behaviour then? Of course not!
The only reason we engage in maladaptive behaviours is to get rid of the challenging feeling of discomfort. In fact, we are hardwired to avoid pain as much as possible. It's embedded into our psyche's survival program.
Riwire and drive
In as little as 20 minutes, your audience will learn a simple but transformative technique used in alcohol and drug addiction rehabilitation that is incredibly useful for everyday life: dealing with the 'urge' voice.
They will walk away knowing how to stop their brains from sub-consciously bullying them into bad behaviours and learn how to ‘drive’ past those tempting highway exits and stay focused on their destination, whether that’s saving money, pushing through the bumps of a new relationship or sticking to a diet.
Your audience will become leaders in:
Recognising and controlling the areas of life they self-sabotage
Understanding why we continue to self-sabotage despite knowing the consequences of these behaviours
Recognising the mind games that justify emotionally-fuelled behaviours and stop negative cycles before they start
Creating a fail-proof plan to maximise your health and productivity
