YES Group with Una Doyle

The YES group North with Una Doyle was about personal development and Salsa. Yes, that's right - Salsa dancing. I keep meaning to go and now it has come to me!

We discussed comfort zones and how, when we worry about what other's are thinking about us, who does it leave in charge of doing what we need to do!? Whilst we are trying to be in someone else's head space, there is no-one in ours!

Another idea we looked at was that there is a silver lining to everything in life.
For example take a moment in your life that you thought was really bad, whether it was your health, a relationship or personal.

Then think of the people that you met because of it. The places you went. What you learnt because of it.

You will realise that everything that happened actually improved your life for the better and made you who you are today. So it is true that every cloud has a silver lining and this exercise is a very good re-frame to give an alternative perspective.

And on top of that, I also got a beginner's lesson in Salsa Dancing thrown in!

Una has a workshop on how to create a pioneering business where you can find out more about what she does.
