    A Mindstream Certificate Student with Extraordinary Determination

    A Mindstream Certificate student with extraordinary determination is Molly McDonald, a resident of Maryland USA. Molly came across our Certificate in Life Coaching weekend-course on our website and liked what she saw so much that she booked a return flight from her home in the USA to complete the course.

     

    Molly looked at several other courses in the USA but was swayed by the amazing reviews of our Mindstream students and the course content, that she flew in to Dublin on a Friday evening and stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn - the venue for our courses – then completed the course and flew home Monday. What a whirlwind weekend.

    Molly enjoyed the course so much that she has invited us to deliver it in DC, USA, later in the year.

    This is what she had to say about the course: “I thoroughly enjoyed every element of the course.


    I felt that I received a thoroughly comprehensive amount of technical and “soft” knowledge that I feel confident I can apply it in practice immediately. Bee, is an exceptional individual and facilitator and was a very large part of the success of the course.

    New Year Resolutions and the Power of Your Decisions

    Much is written and spoken about New Year’s Resolutions every  January and in this article we will look at how to consciously create the change you seek to experience and why so many fail to manifest or maintain their resolutions.

    It will focus on the first-step in the process, making a decision to do something or indeed to not do something.

    Firstly this is the construct; this is the mechanism we use, how we create our physical and emotional experience. These are your life-tools:
    DECISION, TRUST, ACTION and ANALYSE THE FEEDBACK

    Step 1.You Decide.
    You process ideas or thoughts about something, consider the choices available to you and then make a decision. You always have choices.  This process is constantly taking place, every minute of the day, and it is necessary to be aware of what you are thinking, choosing and deciding.
    “This is who I am; I am this type of person; I am the kind of person who…”
     Step 2 You trust your decision:
    “Well, I must be that type of person…”
      Step 3 You take action:
    Your actions are based on the decision you have made. Once you have decided, “this is the type of person I am”, for example, you begin acting like that person, for whatever you decide, you get. Remember: every action produces a result.
    Step 4 You analyse the Feedback
    We will look at this more closely in later articles.

     The Four Steps to Conscious Living
    The Decision:
     There are only two types of decision to be made about oneself:
    - Empowered decisions
    - Dis-empowered decisions


    Which one would you prefer? Which one do you want to live your life by?
    The power of your decision is enormous: it is the decision made in the moment that determines who you are. The mechanics are simple; change results from the decision made in that moment – not from any kind of process.  Begin to consciously participate in the creation and experience of your reality. Your world and your reality is already there, within you. There is no “outside”. There is no “external.” There is only you, and your experience of yourself.

    There is nothing to “get rid of”, process, earn, gain or achieve: there is only decision. It is up to you, at any given moment in time, to decide what to be, and to express that decision through your actions. In each and every moment of your life, you are expressing some version of who you believe yourself to be.

    You decide who you are. You create yourself 100%, right now. Now is the only time that is truly real. Your infinite consciousness is one eternal NOW. Re-create yourself according to who you want to be. By being mindful of the decision you are making, and by exploring who you prefer to be right now, you can completely transform your experience. You already create your experience through decision, trust and action automatically.

    Just be conscious and definite about it.
    For example: use powerful words to decide who you are. Make a list entitled “I Am My Ideal Self”. Now write your own definitions of what contributes to make you the “ideal” you – the person you really seek to be.
    Make this statement: “I am“. Decide who you are right now. Who are you? State who you are in positive and absolute terms: there is no room for doubt! You then speak and act as a person who has made that decision.

    Be fully committed to your decision; then act like someone who is that person, and, in time, being that person will become second-nature. Do the kind of things you would do if you completely accepted yourself as being that person. Tell yourself, “Now that I am this person, I find myself in these circumstances, what would this person do?

    Trusting the Decision:
    Trust or faith does not need to be gained or mustered up! You already have it. Simply be aware that you always trust in something and be more conscious and purposeful about what you choose to trust in.
    Trust is something you already have. You are always placing it somewhere. Where do you place your trust? If you trust consistently, choosing who you want to be and then continuing to trust your decision you will create continuity and belief. “This is who I am!”
    When you experience doubt about something, you are still using trust: you’re just choosing to use your trust in a negative way – to trust in the idea that things may go wrong. Perhaps you think that you cannot possibly be the person you seek to experience; perhaps you doubt your ability to change.

    When you do this, you are trusting negatively – placing your trust in an old, dis-empowered decision.
     **Doubt is a complete, 100% trust in the reality that you say you do not prefer. **
    To trust is not to talk yourself into something. It is simply knowing that you are going to make a decision anyway, and allowing yourself to make your decision constantly.
    Trusting a decision is simply maintenance of the decision “I am”. Sit or stand up straight, allow your body posture and attitude to exemplify the decision you have made.

    Your Power
    If You Are Committed To Your Decision…
    Everything That You Require
    To Allow Your Decision To Manifest…
    Already Exists.
    And There Is Your Power.
    Many fail to either achieve or maintain their New Year resolutions simply because they never made the decision  in the first place, or they didn’t commit to it, they usually decide to “try” something. Or, they make  a different decision which contradicts another. This is an area called “indecision”, it always creates uncertainty and mixed-results. It is the biggest dis-empowering (and confusing) state-of-mind one can be in. However, once the decision is made, enormous power becomesavailable to you.

    Trying

    Trying has an inbuilt allowance that you might fail
    It is not the doing of the thing but the trying of the doing
    Trying may create a result but doing always creates a result
    So- just do it.

    Finally, look at 2016 and  ask “what did you learn?” not so much on what you did or didn’t do. What did you learn about yourself?

    This is about you – no one else. All good life coaching takes the client into a journey of self-empowerment and more importantly, self-awareness, an awareness of the brilliance within.   Take the answer to that question and simply apply it to the issues you want addressed in 2017 and be open to experiencing amazing results.

    Best wishes
    Seann

    Mindstream Brings Coaching To Colombia

    A Dublin based training company has made the headlines in Colombia after it delivered the first Business Coaching seminar in the Latin American country´s Caribbean coast.

    Mindstream gave the two-day seminar this weekend in Cartagena, with a focus on leadership, motivational skills, achieving goals and improving relationships in the workplace and overall create a more productive environment.

    Students included business leaders, politicians and university chiefs in the event held in Sinu University in Cartagena, the coastal city popular for international business conferences and political summits.

    Silvia Bandera, head of Continuing Education at the university, who oversaw the seminar, said there was a welcome boost in interest in the coaching programme after it was covered by local newspaper El Universal.

    “People went crazy calling with questions: what is this? How do we sign-up?”

    The programme was delivered by Seann Farrell, owner of Mindstream, a member of the International Institute of Coaching and Mentoring, he has been delivering lifestyle and business coaching programmes for more than 15 years.

    Farrell said he was taken aback by the welcome from the Colombians, and admired that participants were so open about their personal lives, and eagerness to develop themselves.

    “I found them far more willing (than Europeans) to express their emotions, and they spoke comfortably of their love for their family and their spiritual experiences.”

    Ms Bandera said Sinu University had decided to host a coaching programme after noting the need in Colombia for new and open-minded ways of thinking, particularly on the back of the recent Free Trade Agreement the country signed with the United States, and overall rise in foreign businesses and investment in Colombia.

    “There´s a need for new ways to think differently,” said Ms Bandera. “We´re opening up more to the world around us.”

    She added: “Coaching is only starting in Colombia. Few people know what it is … and this is the first time a foreigner has come to Cartagena for coaching. “

    “And it´s a great opportunity for us to have a coach from Ireland. We invited Seann Farrell for his innovative knowledge in this area,” she said, adding that his accreditation with the International Institute of Coaching and Mentoring was a selling point.

    Sinu University has invited Mindstream to deliver a further two-day and a four-day diploma coaching seminar next year, said Ms Bandera, after the response from the participants at the weekend.

    “People were very happy and said the coach was excellent,” she said.

    In addition to the two-day seminar, Farrell delivered two lectures on coaching to audiences of over 200 in both Cartagena and Monteria in the west of Colombia.

    Farrell said he was keen to return to Colombia and deliver more coaching seminars into the future. “It is a new and exciting market for Coaching, as business people are now becoming aware of the benefits for executives and industry.

    “We expect to be involved in coach-training in Colombia for many years.”
