The Heliotropic Principle

The Heliotropic Principle

“Each of us is on a journey of becoming.”

We come to know life as an unfolding, with each one of us holding a natural desire to self-actualise; to have, do and be the very best we can. Just like a flower bends and grows towards the sun. Invariably, there are challenges along the way, the stormy skies and shadows they create. Yet as clouds pass, we look to the light and it is opportunity that always remains.

Let’s start a conversation about your journey

WHAT IS POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY?

It is the applied psychology of happiness, wellbeing and flourishing. This means it seeks to identify approaches that lead to a life of optimal functioning; exploring the attributes, behaviours, practices, strengths and virtues that enable individuals, families, communities and organisations to thrive. Rather than avoiding the darkness and pushing negative emotions down, a holistic view reveals how we can embrace these in more constructive ways. In this, Positive Psychology can be a pathway to wholeness.

WHAT IS IMPOSTER SYNDROME?

It is a set of limiting beliefs and behaviours that are triggered by our circumstances. People who have this often feel they are out of their depth, do not belong or deserve their successes. Other signs are low self-esteem, habitual procrastination or overworking, and an inclination to self-sabotage or hide away. For many of us, we experience this in moments where the stakes are high or we are embarking on something new. For others, this is a significant problem that impacts many important areas of their life.

BEHAVIOURAL CHANGE

FAQ: Why do I find it so hard to change, and why might I resist it?

It is often taken for granted, but changing our behaviours can be a lot harder than we might anticipate. This is especially so when the change we’re seeking is not necessarily something we are naturally driven to do. As dynamic and intelligent human beings we have an ability to assess and construct expectations of our own and others behaviour.

Our behaviour is really an expression of what we think, feel and believe, and this is driven by our values and identity. Habits also play a big role as we have crafted them over a lifetime. We can sometimes have blind spots to this. But, even with good awareness, if we don’t have a desire for (and knowledge of how to) change, we will likely always resist that change.

I like to share tips, tricks, tools and possible traps to watch out for through my writing. Currently I’m doing a lot of research around how we can use Positive Psychology to overcome all manner of issues we face in life. One of the areas that fascinates me most is Imposter Syndrome, and how widely experienced the phenomenon is. Below is a sample what I’ve shared.
