3 TFM - Let the Voice of Security be your guide

First read the General Instructions. Click here.
(and for Main Introduction, Click here)

Here’s a breakdown of 12 months of Mindfulness And Wellness specifically for the 3rd Transformation: Let the Voice of Security be your guide.

This Transformation prioritizes strengthening the Voice of Security, cultivating optimism, and building resilience in the face of internal and external challenges.

Important Note: The distinction is that Transformation 3 is about boosting positivity and:

  • builds on: disregarding and even soaking in the negativity (Transformation 1, Ignore the Voice of Security), and entertaining it (Transformation 2, Use the Voice of Insecurity for amusement and inspiration)
  • but is not yet about, acting despite it (Transformation 4, Act despite the Voice of Insecurity ), or understanding it (Transformation 5, Befriend your Inner Voice).

Important Note:

  • Adjust as Needed: These are just samples; feel free to adjust them based on individual preferences and needs.
  • Progression: Consider a natural progression throughout the year, building upon the skills and mindset developed in previous months.
  • Professional Guidance: Working with a therapist, counselor, or coach in this Transformation can provide further personalized support and guidance.

Remember, the focus of this Transformation is boosting confidence, positive thoughts, strengths, and resilience, leading to a mindset where the Voice of Security dominates.
