It starts with mindset
'The obstacle is the way'
Every challenge that presents itself offers an opportunity to grow.
It's up to you to accept that challenge.
We will not only test you physically, but even MORE importantly, we will show you how to develop the tools and strategies to develop mental resilience.
We will gently guide and encourage you to put those new skills into practise on our adventure trips so that you build the necessary foundations of positive, new habits before returning home to apply them to your every day life.
There's a difference between responding and reacting. If you can give yourself some space for quick reflection before you respond to a situation, you will have time to CHOOSE your attitude towards it.
The first step is the hardest, but the most critical. We'll show you how to find momentum to change your direction or embrace new opportunities that may come your way.
If not now, when?
From grounding techniques to the 'letting go' principle, we'll show you how to manage your thoughts when you're under pressure.
The ability to regain perspective is the only way to truly manage your emotions. Perspective helps us to understand situations from other positions, to consider other beliefs, experiences and view points. This gives us a better understanding and greater empathy. It reduces bias, judgement and reduces conflict.
Where your attention goes, energy follows...
The 40% rule is a Navy Seals principle that states 'when you think you've reached your limit, you still have 60% left'. We can show you how to take better control of your mind to unleash your true physical potential.
Pushing your own physical, mental and emotional limits is hard work; counter-intuitive even. But we know how vital this is for personal growth. We will encourage you to explore your capabilities in a safe environment and discover new edges from which to grow.
Trying is one step closer to achieving. Give yourself permission to fail. It is the only way to succeed!
Do you have an inner critic? Judgemental voices that pop up questioning your decisions and undermining your accomplishments? Learn how to silence those voices and amplify your inner champion.
Who is in your A team? We all need a supportive group of people around us to encourage us to grow, change and exploit our potential. Intrepid offers you that community and also shows you how to adopt best practise team work strategies for success back home and at work.
We're all afraid of something. Fear is designed to keep you stuck in the past, it is an often unnecessary and exaggerated coping mechanism that blocks our decisions and creates barriers to our potential. We will show you that those barriers can become the very doors to a better life.
Negative ruminations often focus on the things that we have no control over. The Gazing Red2Blue 'Circles of Control' will show you how to bring your focus only to the things you can do something about and 'let go' of everything else.
You have one life. Suck the marrow out of it! Don't keep doing the same things and expect something to change. Start now, invest in you!
Are you a procrastinator or a perfectionist? Perhaps both! How often have you dreamed of doing something but fallen short of making it happen? What's on your bucket list? What's your Everest? We'll help you conquer it!
How do you perform under pressure? Do you thrive or crumble? Perhaps you get so overwhelmed it results in inaction. We'll show you strategies to help you work out 'what's the next best thing I can do from here' in any situation.
Choose your battles, get the perspective to remind yourself what's really important in life. Become more carefree and live without the constraints of what others may think.
This is our Manifesto. The words that best describe us. Our passions, our potential, our values and our focus. We hope you find some words and phrases you identify with too!
Trust the process, trust YOURSELF.
