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).
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.
Some of us learn from other people’s mistakes; the rest of us have to be the other people.

Let me start out today’s post with two ‘what if’ questions:
1. What if there was a faster and easier way to achieve the results you’d like to achieve in life?
2. What if there is a way to shorten your learning curve for anything you’d like to master in life?
Would you be interested?
Of course you would… anyone would!
Well, there is and that’s what I want to talk about in today’s video.
Let me start this post by sharing one of my favourite quotes:
“There are no secrets to success. It is the results of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure”
– Colin Powell
A lot of people ask me how they can have the success they want in their life. They ask, why am i struggling when other people are succeeding? Why aren’t things working out the same for me?
Although there will be a number of reasons for this I can generally boil it down to one of four things they are not doing.
