WHO WE ARE
Whether a stay-at-home mom or a top organizational leader, we are all human beings. As human beings we have one thing in common, our natural human instincts. Our instincts serve a major purpose — to keep us safe physically, but the major stimulus is FEAR!
The instinctive stimulus of fear begins to dominate our thinking processes as we age from childhood into adulthood and can affect us both personally and professionally. By our natural use of our human instincts to protect us physically, we begin to build thought structures from the basic emotion of fear. Fearful, reactive thoughts tend to be the root cause of stress, anxiety, doubt and disease. We unconsciously resist change and growth due to our instinctive fearful response to anything new. So, by this instinctive response to life, we are inclined to grow stagnant.
The Byrd Group addresses this issue with individuals, groups and businesses using a system and process that has been proven over years of practical application. The Next Level Achievement SystemTM replaces old reactive thinking processes with a simple system of daily proactive behaviors. This process is aimed at replacing old instinctive thoughts and behaviors with new proactive thoughts and behaviors.
Using the guidelines of cutting-edge science and research, we begin to identify current Limiting Beliefs, expand Mindful Awareness and discover a practice of eliminating stress through Meditation. This proven system and process creates an innovative proactive approach while reprograming that old reactive mindset. The process of inspiring transformational change as you experience a grander vision of self is both the mission and purpose of The Byrd Group.
