This week has certainly given me something to think about following the result of the EU referendum. The outcome was not what I was expecting and I found that a little ‘self’ coaching was required to steady myself and refocus for a different future.
As the UK now faces a period of uncertainty and change the first thing I decided was to maintain my growth and positive mindset. Taking this approach enables me to keep an open mind, consider things from different perspectives and see the result as a challenge and an opportunity to learn.
As I coached my school students last week, it was interesting for me to listen to what they had to say about the EU. The majority wanted to remain in the EU as they felt it was good for the economy and would open up career opportunities for them outside of the UK. They also felt that it was easier to travel and work in EU countries with an EU passport and were concerned about this if we were to come out. It is a shame that most of these young people were unable to vote as the decision will certainly have an impact on their futures.
My Mum always used to say ‘A change is as good as a rest’ so with that in mind plus my positive approach and growth mindset I am ready to see what happens as we leave the EU.
