What we focus on matters…
One thing we’ve been talking with the team here at Churchill about is the importance of what we focus on.
It doesn’t take long on the web to find something to worry about, or at least someone somewhere who wants you to be worried about it.
What that does is start to tell this important part of our brain called the Reticular Activating System to focus on things that prove the need to worry.
It’s like a heat-seeking missile that is tuned to seek out information that is deemed important, according to our focus.
And then it will make you see it everywhere you go.
The classic example was when I was pregnant with twins. Suddenly there were twins everywhere.
There weren’t really, it’s just that it had become more important and my brain was finding opportunities to point it out to me.
One of the focuses for us here at Churchill has always been to be hopeful.
On seeing the best in people and understanding what value their skills and knowledge have.
Most of us unfortunately do battle with negative self talk. “I’m not good enough, I don’t know enough, I can’t, I don’t have”…etc.
We can all find areas of improvement, but the worthwhile work is in focusing on what you do know and can do. On valuing your skills and experience instead of taking it all for granted.
Your skills and knowledge are valuable, and they deserve to be recognised by you and reflected in national qualifications, so that prospective employers can also value them.
If you are wondering what to do with all of your skills and experience and whether or not they could be worth something as qualifications, and how that would work for you in your career, get your little heat-seeking missile on board and have a chat with us…
Because you will walk away with that hope and that understanding that somebody else can see what is worthwhile in you, in all that you know, all that you know how to do, and what opportunities can open up for you in your world.

I’m Tricia Velthuizen Co-Founder of Churchill Education, giver of hope (most of the time)… I’m also good for chocolate!
You take care, and hope to chat soon.
