Tough Times Ahead

In the current economic climate many people are becoming increasingly stressedabout their financial future. Every week there seems to be more and more doom and gloom in the news about the struggling economy. Banks and even small countries are going bankrupt. Many companies are going bust, and others are tightening their financial belts, reducing costs where possible, freezing recruitment and making staff redundant. As a result fewer jobs are available, and competition for them increases, making it harder to get a job, and harder to hold onto onto the one you’ve got.

When times get tough its quite natural for you to become more and more stressed and worried. Stress, worries, limiting beliefs, negative thinking, low confidence, poor self esteem, poor relationship skills, insomnia, depression and unhelpful coping strategies all work against you. They reduce your effectiveness, performance and decision making ability.

Downward Spiral

The problem with stress and anxiety is that they often make the very thing your are worried about even worse. For example, lets say you are worried about your job security. Because of this worry, you might find your concentration, judgement, confidence, ability to sleep and clarity of thought are affected. Which means your performance at work becomes compromised further. As you feel less and less able to do your job, you worry more about it, and so the cycle continues. Actually taking you deeper and deeper in a downward spiral towards the very thing you are most worried about happening.

Are you performing at your best?

Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal.
Henry Ford

Ironically this is also the very time in your life when you need to be performing at your absolute best. If you are not then you could lose out as your competition races ahead of you and takes the job and business that could be yours.

Resilient people view problems as challenges to be overcome, and turn difficulties into opportunities. They perservere despite obstacles and setbacks. They have a positive outlook and they believe in themselves and their abilities. Having this positive attitude allows them to stay ahead of the competition, think smarter, work smarter, be on the ball, be open to opportunities, and stay flexible and creative.

If you could improve yourself what would you change?

Upward Spiral – Finding a solution

Every small change at the root level of belief will produce amazing changes in behavior and performance.
Harry Alder, author

When it comes to personal problems you can either focus on the problem itself and get yourself mired deeper and deeper into it, or you can focus on finding a solution and begin to turn what was once a problem into an opportunity to improve yourself.

A solution is available at the Inner Changes Manchester practice and is highly individualised to your exact requirements, so the exact form of treatment and number of sessions will vary from person to person. Improvements can often be made in as little as 4 to 8 sessions for specific issues, for more deep rooted or complex problems, 8 or more will be required.
