Finding your inner strength
Updated: Sep 15, 2020
In this month’s blog, Neil Jenkins – lifestyle coach at Absolute Business Coaching - shares his experience of using Your Virtual Mind Trainer and discusses the importance of strength.
Inner strengths can include self-confidence, determination, emotional intelligence, tolerance and compassion.
As Neil Jenkins – a life and leadership coach – explains: a higher level of self-awareness and self-confidence can also lead to a more balanced life, smarter goal-setting and lower stress levels.
Neil, who works with individuals and teams across the UK by helping them to improve their life balance, is a firm believer in the importance of training the mind.
“Often when people think about strength, they think about physical strength,” says Neil. “I used to take part in lots of Ironman events, triathlons and ultraruns and took up yoga as a balance to those. But I started to realise that to compete physically and mentally, it was important to address the power of the mind.”
“Around five years ago, I snapped my Achilles while snowboarding, was on crutches and ended up out of action for six months. It was then that I really started to investigate more in depth studying the brain and addressing mental strength, as well as physical attributes. Strength can be about balance – being strong in the mind, flexible in the mind and establishing the right life balance.”
This month’s audio guides you to connect with and enhance your own inner strength using our brain’s capacity to recall the past and ‘see’ the future.
Fundamentally developing strength will underpin resilience which is more than necessary for our modern world and all the challenges it brings us .
