This month our update has input from Billy Connolly who said ” There’s no such thing as bad weather… just wrong clothes! so get yourself a sexy raincoat and live a little!”
How’s that for your thoughts determining your attitude!
Well this month we have a wee look at a guy who ticks all those boxes. He also is a shining light for the MindStore quote ” from Ordinary to Extraordinary”
Its the Big Yin! Billy Connolly. Having faced prostate cancer and early Parkinson’s symptoms he has developed the mindset to overcome the challenges and see the positive in his life and the world around him.
If you read about his early childhood and follow his transformation to a world class comedian, musician, presenter and actor, he truly has gone from Ordinary to Extraordinary in his performance.
Read some more about Billy below and his tips on slowing down and taking time out.
Thank you for making the time to read this, and I encourage you to look into our mental tools for improving performance for you personally and for the people in your organisation.
Have a Magnificent March!
Damian and the team at MindStore Australia.

Mental Rehearsal the Secret of Success
Mental rehearsal is the secret to success in your personal life, and career.
With the fantastic Commonwealth Games from Glasgow there have been numerous images of the competitors closing there eyes just before their event.
This is not out of fear like we might, or to pray, it is a specific tool they use to visualise them winning the event.
They are mentally rehearsing what they have practised hundreds of times to ensure a peak performance now, when it counts.
The strength of mind to do this amongst the excitement, anticipation and stress of the event is what makes them Extraordinary achievers.
Outside of the Commonwealth Games, look at Formula One drivers like Lewis Hamilton and the late Ayrton Senna.
In football David Beckham is often seen closing his eyes just before one of his amazing free kicks.
In golf Tiger Woods used to regularily close his eyes during his practise swing.
Do you see the pattern?
Extraordinary people use tools like mental rehearsal to deliver Extraordinary results.
Wouldn’t you like to have these tools too?
Imagine how you could improve your personal and professional performance at those critical times if you had the tools to mentally rehearse your activity before hand.
Well you can by inviting MindStore into your workplace to deliver a custom designed workshop for you, your leadership team and people at all levels.
As I keep saying, Organisations are groups of people, when you inspire and empower the people you transform the organisation.
We too can learn to use Mental Rehearsal to improve our performance. One of our best MindStore tools is within what we call our House on the Right Bank. This for those who have not attended one of our workshops is a place we create in our minds, on the Right side of our brain , the creative intuitive imaginative side. Where we can mentally rehearse the event that is so important to us in our life. Contact us to find out more.
If you think this is out there and different, then you are right. Einstein said two things, one is that “Imagination is more important than knowledge” and this is what we are using in these tools.
and secondly he said that “we can not solve our problems with the same level of thinknig that created them”.
So what we do is deliberately designed to be different, out of the ordinary, because if the ordinary things we have done in the past still worked we would all be doing much better.
It takes mental rehersal to improve performance from Ordinary to Extraordinary.
This tool delivers fantastic results.
At MindStore we are passionate about helping everyone to rekindle that way of thinking so think about inviting us to be involved in your next learning and development event.
A fantastic opportunity to discover how to make your business more Resilient by changing your thinking.
