We fundamentally want to survive or thrive

Thrive or survive?

We fundamentally want to survive or thrive and the oldest part of our brain which is the home of our instincts works hard to ensure that we do.

The problem is that threats to our security are often not grizzly bears behind desks but more about social threats. However, these threats (which can often be imaginary) can still trigger the fight, flight or freeze response and send us into a sub-optimal state of behaviour whilst we try and protect ourselves. In a sub- optimal state we are less connected to other people and more likely to comply than perform to our best. When faced with an opportunity to thrive or grow, this can propel us forward into performance.



About the author...

Victoria believes that the problems we face today are inseparable from who we are and the decisions that our brain makes for us without us even realising. Victoria works with her clients to help them understand themselves and the different behaviours that result from their brain and body intelligence systems. She advocates moving away from what you know to who you are as a person.
