Declutter your thoughts and free your mind

Rebecca Roberts is a mindset coach, storyshaper and spacemaker.

She has a deep curiosity for exploring the old beliefs and inner dialogues that shape our behaviour and experience of life. These are the thoughts that lead us towards either consistent frustration or deep fulfilment.

As an Interior Architect, Rebecca has worked with people and companies across the globe in various sectors – business, arts/design, education, technology and more – to facilitate and support transformation.

In these short videos, she provides tips and guidance about how to take control of your life and slow things down.

    It’s more about your consistent trajectory than the big leaps.

    Learning to celebrate small daily wins to build momentum and condition our brains to crave healthy progress.

    Focus on finding the balance between the giant leaps (harvests) and the consistent small steps (daily tasks).

    This video dives into the effects of cortisol and stress on our ability to create sustainable progress and helps us realise that we need to value both the big and small business steps that all add up to strong companies and teams.

    Focus on one puzzle piece as your primary objective, and then see how everything else fits into place around it.

    Break down old mindsets that keep us in an unhealthy or unhappy mindset because we think that movement and overwork is progress.

    Use this handout to put steps in place that will help you not to feel overwhelmed when you're starting a new project

    Noticing the distance between our expectations of reality and actual reality.

    The greater the distance, the greater suffering we experience.

    We always have a choice for how we handle life when it doesn’t meet our expectations. Bring that wasted energy back to the present moment to work on the things we can actually control and impact.

    Use this handout to remind yourself of the options you have when it comes to directing your resources

    Moving from weatherman to rainmaker (victim to creator).
