And these same techniques will also work for you!
So, as my life transitioned and I began to “reflect” on my experiences it seemed an appropriate time to really find out what the “magic formula” was that really helped me to turn my life around.
I knew that being physically fit and working out on regular basis was a huge part of my journey, challenging not only my mind but also my body to push even further than I ever thought possible but I was also beginning to realise that as big a part as it played in my life it was no greater than the sum of all its parts, namely the way I felt “mentally” and how organising my life to suit my purpose and following my own ideals and not dancing to the tune of others was incredibly empowering. Setting goals for myself, setting time aside to plan and think, organising my day to suit my purpose and nobody else’s.
Then I thought about the part that my “emotions” had played in my life, how at times during those significant highs nothing seemed insurmountable, nothing was impossible and I proved it to myself over and over again as every task and goal I set myself I exceeded using the endorphin high from my exercise sessions as the catalyst I need to further fuel my ambitions.
Yet I also realised that when I plummeted to those almighty lows, the endorphin high and the physical challenges were just not strong enough to help me heal, I need something else, I needed to go deeper.
How do I deal with the anger, the sadness, the fear, the guilt, the depression and anxiety?
The three mirrors concept has been shaped, formulated, tried and tested not only in my own life but with other people as well. The more I worked with individuals and groups I realised their “inner reflections” the mirror they were the most reluctant to look into was always the place to begin working with them.
By looking into that mirror no matter how difficult or painful, be it physical, mental or emotional was the first brave step in beginning to achieve the lifestyles they’d always dreamed about.
I then then devised the three mirrors test which will pinpoint the exact mirror or mirrors you’re avoiding, address the issues, basically shining a light on your inner fears and giving you the tools, techniques and strategies you’ve always wanted to move your life forward.
So, my friend, it’s time to be brave, step up to the mirror and tell me which mirror are avoiding and why?
The three mirrors and a full description of how they work and affect our everyday life can be found in my book
