Bit of a different one for this marketing and business blog – but one I feel compelled to share, as I think it’s incredibly relevant to us all, in a plethora of ways!
As The Flourish Mentor®, I pitch myself as a “marketing and mindset mentor”, as I’m passionate about women solopreneurs developing both their digital marketing strategies and their mindset for success.
As a mentor, my sessions are based predominantly on my lived experience in growing a brand and business over the last 10+ years – I’ve tried and tested everything, failed, built resilience and am now flourishing as an entrepreneur. My Psychology Masters and Certification in Positive Psychology Coaching, have given me even more depth and insight into this side of the coin and I now have a toolkit that I can draw-upon with my clients, as and when needed.
Scene set… you’re probably wondering how skiing fits into it?
Well, let me explain… (by the way, if you’re a podcast person, you may want to go & listen here instead, as I did a whole episode on what I’m about to share with you)…
How Positive Psychology helped me overcome my fear of skiing
Want to know how positive psychology helped me overcome my fear of skiing?
I did these 4 things:
1 – A lot of work on my self awareness!
What does that mean? Well, I realised, when I sat down and gave it some serious thought, that I had A LOT to unpick when it came to my relationship with skiing. And that recognition has come about because of me really being in-tune with who I am as a person, my strengths, my lesser strengths and my values.
It was like peeling an onion, but I realised there was a lot going on, including: lack of confidence and trust in others, feeling like I couldn’t communicate how I truly felt about it with my loved ones (who so badly wanted me to enjoy it!), feeling pressured and being pushed outside of my own comfortable pace and boundaries, not feeling supported or understood… and so on. A lot right?
When I started to recognise and acknowledge these things, it finally gave me the power and control to address each one and make some changes.
2 – Channelled my Growth Mindset!
3 – Used Positive Psychology coaching to discover what joy in skiing looked like for me!
4 – Realised the importance of one-to-one guidance!
Pretty awesome huh?
I’ve only scratched the surface of the power of Positive Psychology with this experience. But now you’ve read it, what challenge in your life do you think you could apply the tools of Positive Psychology to?
I’d love to know!
