The Power Of Questions: Shift Your Focus

“If I had an hour to solve a problem and my life depended on the solution, I would spend the first 55 minutes determining the proper question to ask, for once I know the proper question, I could solve the problem in less than five minutes.”
–  Albert Einstein

Questions are powerful tools. When you change the questions you ask yourself, you change the direction of your life.

Remember, it’s not the events of your life that determine how you feel and act, it’s meaning you create from the experience.

Learning to ask empowering questions – especially when something bad happens – is a critical life skill that will ultimately shape the meanings you create and therefore the quality and direction of your life.

How To Break The Cycle Of Negative Thinking (part 2)

In the first video on how to break the vicious cycle of negative thinking we looked at the link between thoughts, feelings and behaviours and how each one affects the others.

In today’s video we will look more closely at breaking the vicious cycles by targeting the behaviours associated with particular problems. Very often we react automatically, without considering our actions or the consequences of them.

We will learn how to choose healthy alternative behaviours by using one of my favourite models – it’s called P.A.C.E.S (you can download a copy of it below the video).


How To Break The Cycle Of Negative Thinking (Part 1)

In today’s video I want to help you to break the vicious cycle of negative thinking, feeling and behaviour. When you know the parts of the vicious cycle, you can change them – and therefore change the way you feel.

Understanding the S.T.E.P model (covered in the video) will enable you to gain some useful insights to your thinking and begin to address and work through negative emotions such as anger, anxiety and depression.


How To Be Happy (Part 8) – Controlling Your Focus

Hey, give me your mental attention for a moment and it will make you happier (I promise).

Much of the level of happiness in your life depends not on beauty nor brains, fame nor fortune, fate nor coincidence, but on what you choose to mentally focus on.

From the moment you wake up to the moment you go to sleep, you are selectively focusing on something in your experience, and much more often than you may suspect, you can take charge of this process to good effect.

Life is not about becoming free of problems and challenges so you can be happier, rather it is about becoming better at shifting perspectives to bring about a better experience. It’s your response to life’s problems that determines the level and frequency of your happiness.

If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.
— Wayne Dyer

HOW you experience the challenges life throws up is a more significant factor in your happiness than WHAT challenges you experience. Indeed, your ability to focus is the key to controlling your experience and, ultimately, your happiness.

Happiness is a choice. It’s what you choose to focus on and give meaning to and in today’s video I show you three specific places to put your focus for the ultimate happiness experience.

When you find yourself lost on your path to happiness, it may be time to pause and refocus.

How To Be Happy (Part 7) – Negative Thinking – How To Change It Fast!

Can you think of any goals and desires you REALLY want but you’re not taking action on?

Like the desire to be happy or financially independent or to find a life partner.

So what’s stopping you?

It’s key to realise the most important person who speaks to you every minute of every day is you on the inside – your beliefs!

This might lead you to think, “How do I know what I believe Colin?

The short answer is to pay attention to the words you speak.

Especially when you hear two words because these two words that are the driving force behind you achieving any of your greatest desires.

These two words are the most powerful words you ever speak to yourself about any goal you have.

The two words?

“CAN” and “CAN’T”

How many times have you approached a new project, job, relationship, basically anything that has not been previously proven possible by yourself with a doubting negative attitude, an attitude of “I can’t do this,” or, “This is going to be difficult.”

I know there have been many – more than I care to remember – times when I have let a “I can’t” belief hold me back from realising a goal or desire. Often, I was not even aware of the inner resistance hidden deep in my subconscious, running the show from the background and ultimately destroying of the very thing I desired.

“The greatest disintegrating element in the human consciousness is resistance.”
~Charles Fillmore

Take a moment, right now, to imagine how your life would be different if you approached any desire you have with an attitude of “I can.”

How would that feel? How would that change the way you approach your goals?

So what can you do about this inner resistance? Can you change it?

The answer is yes and in today’s video I’ll show you a technique to interrupt any habitual negative “I can’t” belief and change it in to a positive “I can” belief using a three letter word.

It’s fun, it’s simple and it’s life changing.
