GDPR May 2018


The General Data Protection Regulations comes into effect on 25th May 2018. We are all busy putting templates in place to deal with this. Look at your inbox these days and you will find you are bombarded with emails asking you to opt-in or opt out of something.

But what about you? There are also templates running in your head but you can’t see them. You can hear the internal chitter-chatter and that is a template too. When you feel anxious or panicky that’s also a template. Your mind runs patterns of behaviour when you are triggered, whether internally or externally.

Your subconscious knows everything about you. It retains all information, every thought you have ever had, and all those secrets too. Isn’t that amazing?

Millions and millions of neural pathways criss-cross and build and strengthen every time you even think a thought. Our brains are the most fascinating thing about us and within your brain there is so much potential.

It has recorded all your great qualities, skills, and unique strengths, perhaps not tapped into, and also how you have overcome challenges in the past.

We must all be compliant with GDPR but surely we must also be compliant with what our real self wants: peace, that ease of being where emotional wounds are dealt with, so you can opt-in to feeling more at ease. Your consent is required 100% for this. It starts with one thought : opt in and take responsibility for yourself. Put that in your psychological database and everything changes.

Against all the odds

Ireland recently won their rugby match against France. With the last play of the game
Johnny Sexton was the man who stole the game from France. Cheers of joy rang through the stadium and the heartache showed on the faces of the French team. The stadium erupted with excitement at the final score.

Often in life when all the odds are against us, it would be easy to throw in the towel. It’s the ability to train your mind to be consistently persistent in whatever you do that makes the difference. Whether it is sport, business, meditation or getting the work life balance right, it’s being consistently persistent that makes the difference.

Johnny Sexton knew he was up against time. He knew there was a moment. A moment where he could change everything. His belief in himself was driven by a winner’s mindset.
A mindset that he had nourished, nurtured and developed over time. He was 100% focused on the task in hand and he knew the outcome he wanted and he achieved it.

The way you do one thing is the way you do everything. A winner’s mindset is not something that just happens overnight. It has to be worked on. You have to be consistently persistent in whatever you want to achieve. You have to develop a pattern that becomes habitual.

Sometimes it seems as if all the odds are stacked against us, but it is the small consistent steps that make persistence the goal of the winner’s mindset. It not just about training physically, it’s about training mentally as well.

Springtime in Dublin

Springtime in Dublin. At last the rain has stopped pouring down. The sun is shining it’s warmth much more now. There is a sense of newness about in gardens. Green buds on brown branches. Flowers shooting up through the ground. Sturdy and strong. The birds sing in early morning light. A great stretch in the evenings. The first fly buzzing. And yet, there are those weeds that need tending to. Some are strong. It’s important when weeding to get to the root of the matter. Dig them up, get rid of them. It’s the only way for gardens to flourish.

Imagine your head is a bit like a garden.  There are beautiful plants and gorgeous flowers there. Think of the plants and flowers as your good thoughts, positive thoughts about yourself, but a few weeds have gotten in. Think of these weeds as your anxiety and fears. And you know what weeds are like, once they take hold, they just seem to take over. It’s important to get to the root of the matter and get rid of them. Free up your head from all that anxiety. Let it live free again. Focus on the good stuff. Nourish it, encourage growth and development.

Imagine being the gardener of your own head. You decide to get rid of the weeds that are holding you back. Planting new seeds of opportunity and growth. Make your head a place worth living in. A beautiful place where you are happy to spend some time in, be it day or night.

Anxieties come in different shapes and forms. Some are called anxiety, panic, some are called fears. These are just labels. Behind each label, there is a hurt. Some are secret hurts. Hurts that maybe you have told no one. Like a weed things get a bit out of control and seem hard to tackle. Just remember there are different tools to tackle weeds. And when you get rid of the weeds, the anxiety lessens. Why not look after your head and make the most of the beauty that wants to come out to play, wants to shine, wants to see the light and be nourished, wants to grow.

There are many different tools to help you achieve what you want. Wouldn’t it be great to finally tackle those weeds that hold you back and start this season of your life anew? Refreshed and ready to spring into action.
