Do you know those people in life for whom everything just seems to come really easy for them. They seem to attract what they are looking for, whether it be a new job, a relationship or even passing their driving test.
Why might it be easier for one person over another?
It’s simply about how our mindset works for or against us. We all have positive and negative thoughts, however if we notice the things that happen to us that we perceive as negative, then we feel more negative. If we focus on the positive things we see around us, if we remind ourselves what we have to be grateful for then we become more positive.
How does this play out with Driving Instruction?
Throughout your Driving Lessons you will be learning about & practising new skills, and as you get more experience you will bring those skills together in real time. You will dealing with the traffic lights, then focusing on your speed and position, checking mirrors, listening and responding to instructions, dealing with developing hazards and so on.
If while you are doing this you only recognise what you are not doing correctly, then your mind will start to doubt your ability, where as if you focus on your achievements and recognising what you have learned, what you have done better, your mind will believe that you are capable of driving.
We also take our mindset from what we do everyday, this is something that will have been built up over many years and is fairly established when we are children. These things become part of our make up or our psyche. This can affect our belief system or the values that we hold important.
So what will coaching do for you?
Coaching will help you become more self aware. It will help take your mindset from where you are now to where you want to be, i.e. the person who has already passed their driving test. Think about how you might feel holding that certificate. You have just qualified and now you can go on to do many more things, like getting a new job, or travelling somewhere completely new. Notice how you feel when you picture this in your mind.
We have specialist driving instructors for anxious pupils
If you have had a negative experience of Driving Instruction or had a bad experience as a passenger in a vehicle, being coached can help to turn this around and move you forwards with your learning.
We now run free workshops to help you explore this further, and you can find details of our next event and pick up a ticket via our Facebook page.
