Are you ready to conquer stress?

Tuesday 13th October is the day I launch my new anti-stress program!

I’m very excited (as I’m sure you can tell!)

The thing is, it has taken me the best part of two months to pull this audio training together.  I’ve included everything I have learned so far in my journey to a healthier, happier and more authentic me.

It’s called… ICE My Stress (ICE is for Identify. Control. Eliminate.)

That’s exactly what I believe you can do if you take action and follow some key principles and strategies.  I have been really delighted with the feedback I have had so far.

I promised ages ago that I would email my loyal followers and let them know that it is available and on sale. You can take a look at www.icemystress.com

Take a look soon and you will be able to get hold of this 3 part audio training program while it is at the lowest price it will be – just $7.

I am also including some help sheets and worksheets to make it even easier for you to get stress under control in your life.

This was absolutely the very first step I made when I decided to go on this journey to a better life and it a crucial way to begin to improve everything.

Once the cloud of stress is no longer hanging over you, then literally anything feels possible and your outlook becomes so much more positive.

I remember feeling so out of control, pressured and almost in despair when I was a busy school teacher, but I am so glad I learned these simple strategies s it has made all the difference.

I still have my moments, of course.  Who doesn’t? But the difference is that I know how to deal with my feelings and return to being calm and in control.

Anyway, this is not a hard sell.  If you think it might be of use then take a look, but it’s totally up to you.  I certainly don’t want to add to your stress!

Talk soon,

Tony

 

What really makes a difference?

Lots of people have asked me the same question:

“What do you think really makes a difference?”

When I’ve managed to unpick exactly what they mean, it always comes down to the same thing.  They want to know if there is one simple thing that people can focus on to achieve lasting change.

The thing is… I think there is.  (only, actually there are three things!)

In making the positive changes I have made in my life so far I have realised that it is all about taking 100% ownership of your own life that leads to the biggest breakthroughs.

To my mind, the three key elements that you need to be fully in control of are:

Your thoughts

Your choices

Your language

I believe that it really is that simple.  In order to effect genuine lasting change in your life it is essential that you can control all three and then you will achieve all you desire.

Let’s take each one in turn and I’ll explain exactly why these are so crucial and what you can do to make them work for you.

Your Thoughts

It’s been said that our thoughts form the universe and that’s absolutely true.  Look around you and everything that has been created by humanity has first existed as a thought in somebody’s head.  This is why we all need to pay close attention to the quality of our thinking.

The English author, comic actor and wit, Stephen Fry tells the story of how he spent much of his teenage years moping around feeling that his best years were already behind him.  In fact he used to write notes saying “His whole life stretched out gloriously behind him” and this left him miserable, direction-less and confused.

To my mind, although this is an extreme version, I believe we are all guilty of a similar level of negative self-talk.  I spent many years in my life telling myself (in thoughts!) that I was unworthy, useless and uninteresting.  The reality I imagined is one that I started to create in the real world,

I looked for evidence that would agree with these beliefs and ignored anything that didn’t.  It made no difference how many times friends were positive about me, I only believed the story in my mind that I had constructed and felt wedded to.

Monitor your thoughts!

Are you being negative or unreasonable?

Could you think more helpfully?

Your Choices

The next area of life that can trap you and leave you feeling dissatisfied is the choices you make.  In a very profound way, everything that you now have in your life is a result of the choices you have made.

So one way to absolutely improve how your life turns out is to make better choices.

The key is to ask yourself, “Is this going to serve my long-term aims, or is it just a short-term gain with negative long-term consequences?”

Seriously, many of the things in your life that you are unsatisfied with are likely to be the result of unhelpful choices you made in the past.

So start today by thinking carefully about your actions.

Your Language

Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) to the rescue!

In a nutshell, if you ‘listen’ to the language you use day-to-day, you will soon spot examples of words and phrases that do not serve you well.

You see, there is no point monitoring your thoughts and choices, if your words give you away!

Be careful of catastrophising (always seeing the absolute worst!) and look out for words that don’t give you any room to breathe.

Examples:

I ALWAYS fail!

You MUST do this…

I can NEVER manage my time.

These ‘all-or-nothing’ words tie you up in knots.  Keep your words positive and hopeful!

So, watch your thoughts, your choices and your words!

*** UPDATE – I am going to post again in the next few days with details about my two brand new products – ICE My Stress and Audio Life Coach.  I’m very excited to be about to launch these! ***

Cheers for now,

Tony
