3 facts and 3 good news from the “what is the colour of this dress” buzz

FACT1: What you see… is what you see: your brain plays all kinds of tricks, which makes you create your own version of reality. This is not exceptional, it is just the way your brain functions.

FACT2: What you see… is what you think you see: you are influenced by your thoughts or by what others tell you and this makes you see or remember things that either don’t exist or are very different from what you saw or experimented.

FACT3: What you see… is what you do: athletes use visualization exercises in order to optimize their physical performance. Scientists have shown that when athletes are in their “element”, they experiment reality in a very different way: tennis players see the ball bigger and slower and the net lower than it actually is.

And this makes the difference between winning the match or losing it.

And now, the good news:

You can learn to center yourself and be in a mindset that will make you less likely to fall in visual traps and ensure that you focus on what is really relevant for you.

You can influence your brain by your thoughts, and create new patterns for success. For example, you can change the way you think about yourself, your job, and put yourself in a positive and winning mood before an important meeting.

You can use the athletes’ tactics and transpose them to your everyday performance needs and goals, whether it be for a presentation or a meeting, or more generally, in order to install a more successful mindset and attitude.

How can you learn this? Who teaches these skills?

Announcing our complimentary Curiosity Session and Workshop

They say that curiosity killed the cat.

We say that curiosity created the Leader!

We are launching our activity on 24 March in Brussels with a Curiosity Session that will explore various areas of our Leadership Workshops.

Here’s just a few questions to stimulate your curiosity:

– What if you discovered how the subjective nature of reality allows you to create a better, enhanced, version of yourself?

– What if you were able to quickly access your ressources to optimise your professional and personal life?

– What if you knew how to take ownership of your life by understanding how you can create your own paradise… or your own hell?

What if this was all possible, and quite simple too?

Please join us for the introductory Curiosity Session and Cocktail on 24 March 2015 at 18:00!
