Board Meetings with Layne

Tired of the standard Board meeting?

It’s time to experience a real “Board Meeting” with a different spin. And yes… the pun is intended. Layne Beachley AO is bringing her expertise and knowledge as a business woman, mentor and world champion surfer together to provide you and your team with an impactful team-building exercise incorporating motivation, life coaching and professional development… oh, and a surf. Sound interesting? Let’s read on…

What will this involve? It is a half-day program with two ‘Board Meetings’. The first Board Meeting will take place in the ocean where your team will enjoy a once in a life-time opportunity to surf alongside a 7 time world champion. Immediately following, your team will have time to dry off, change and take a short walk to a designated restaurant where the second Board Meeting with Layne will take place. Here your team will spend quality one on one time listening to and learning from Layne on what made her successful and how they can apply this to their professional and personal lives.

Live a life you love, love the life you live.

The A.R.T. of Success

Do you want to extend and build on your career, find a competitive edge, uncover your driving force and consciously achieve success in business and life?

Layne’s success is unquestionable both in and out of the water, but what exactly does it take to achieve and sustain success?

In these series of workshops, you will be asked to clearly articulate your vision, identify your personal values, create awareness of your self limiting beliefs, develop extending beliefs and shatter the inner glass ceiling to start living a life you truly desire.

All inspiring leaders think, act and communicate in a unique way.

No matter what situation you are in you will always have certain thoughts about it, which result in feelings and actions, all determined by your attitude.

Resilience depends on supportive, responsive relationships and mastering a set of capabilities that can help us respond and adapt to adversity in healthy ways.

Speaking your truth and living authentically builds trust, reduces stress, increases happiness and empowers you.

The A.R.T of Success will create a higher level of consciousness so you no longer respond to an old historical version of the self, shattering the inner glass ceiling and empowering you to life a life by design, not by default.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Healthy Distractions

Is there such a thing as a healthy distraction?

In my humble opinion, we all experience ADHD for things that don’t interest us.

By contrast, when you are pursing goals determined by personal values, driven by passion and belief you will always invest your attention and effort into creating success. It all starts with a clearly articulated vision fueled by the desire to succeed. So what do you want? (Btw – knowing what you don’t want does not answer this question!)

When I was competing for my 6 consecutive world titles, the number one threat to achieving my goals was distractions. I am a true Gemini, intensely focused when I need to be and easily distracted at the best of times… Squirrel!

My inability to maintain my focus cost me a win on several occasions because my attention was split between what my competition were doing in and out of the water, what was going on at home, observing spectators on the beach and so on. I had to learn to mitigate the distractions and focus my attention on the things that mattered: the changing conditions, creating a game plan, visualizing the outcome, stretching my body and preparing my equipment.

In every situation, understanding my strengths and weaknesses has enabled me to get the best out of myself, by preventing external circumstances from dictating my ultimate success.

It’s like sitting down at my computer to write this blog, while answering phone calls and occasionally checking emails. In order to succeed we must create the space to allow ourselves to F.O.C.U.S – Follow One Course Until Successful.

However, sometimes when you commit your attention to something, it can fall out of focus. Try staring at an object in front of you and see how long it remains in clear focus. You will notice that you have to adjust your eyes or slightly shift your focal point to keep your broader focus clear. These minor adjustments are examples of healthy distractions.

Michelle Payne rode her way into the History Books on Nov 3, 2015, becoming the first woman to win the Melbourne Cup. I had the enormous pleasure of interviewing Michelle one hour before the big race and she was extremely relaxed and quietly confident of her chances. She expected to be in the race from the start and held her nerve all the way to the winning post. After our chat she mentioned that she appreciated the healthy distraction from sitting alone in the jockey sheds with her thoughts. The fun and lighthearted interview followed by a few photos with members of the marquee provided her with a healthy distraction, enabling her to relax and take her mind off what she was about to embark on.

The lesson? When you are taking action towards achieving a goal, allow yourself some healthy distractions, ones that clear your mind and provide perspective, creating a positive mindset.

Manifestation blossoms when we turn down or tune out doubtful noise.

Conversations with Thy Self

Are you your world’s worst critic or biggest cheerleader?

If you were paid 10 cents for every kind word you said to yourself and had to pay 5 cents for every unkind word, would you be rich or poor?

What does your internal dialogue sound like?

Recently I was listening to a recording of Dr. Rick Moss, author of the Light Travellers Notebook where he states; “Your thoughts and beliefs about yourself are out pictured and externalized so you can see them and heal them. The body is a physical expression of your mind. Are your words harmful?”

What we think, we become, physically and emotionally.

I then began to notice how I was talking and harming myself through my thoughts. Criticizing, judging, questioning and negatively referring to aspects of my body I don’t like; The bunion on my left foot, the fat on my thighs, hips and stomach, the wrinkles on my face.  Yes, even I have fat days, ugly days and unhappy days but I have learned over many years of working with NLP therapists and life coaches that we have the capacity to control our thoughts and rewire our patterns, we just have to choose to think differently. That choice begins with awareness – we can’t change what we can’t see.

So where are you placing your awareness?

If I continue to draw my attention to the things I want to make disappear or change, criticize them and judge them, the result is the same, a consistent external projection or ‘out picture’ of an image I don’t want. For this to change, the negativity has to stop! I have to choose to think differently.

I have since shifted my thoughts to aspect of myself I love and extend my gratitude towards the image I want. When ever the ego mind chimes in and starts giving me a hard time, I flip it into a more positive frame by declaring statements such as “*My body is toned, healthy and strong. I am grateful for my energy, happiness and abundance.”
*This declaration must be followed by actions to support the desired outcome.

When you use the words I AM, you are making a declaration to the universe, which is then supported with an emotional state. So, if you wake up in the morning and start your day with the words, I AM Tired, the universe will support this thought with the emotional state of tiredness. Equally, when you wake up in the morning and start your day off with a more positive spin on things such as I AM energized, expect your emotional state to be in support of that. Even if you aren’t feeling that way, sometimes you have to fake it till you make it.

When you look in the mirror, what do you say to yourself?

Create a motto for yourself that is both believable and achievable so when you wake up in the morning feeling tired, or when you look at yourself in the mirror, your I AM statements are in support of what you want to be, feel or experience, not negative manipulations of your ego mind.

My daily motto is I AM healthy, Happy, Fit and Strong.

What is yours?
