Confidence is the Utopia of Success

Balance.011Confidence is the Utopia of Success

Did you know that your confidence level in its purest form is quite elusive, exclusive and very highly sought after

Why?

Well, because pure confidence allows people to become the best in the World at what they do.

Dr. Naoisé O’Reilly comments that, “all of our clients have Confidence regardless of age.  You are confident when people understand you, you are being true to yourself and approach all tasks in the way that suits you.”

Confidence building exercises are an especially critical component of success for all kinds of high level sports people that we work with from Olympians, Paralympians, Special Olympians, World Champion Gold Medalists, European Champions and Grand Prix Winners etc.

For this reason, confidence fitness is as important as training, structure, conditioning and nutrition.

Dr. Naoisé and I experience how confidence is crucial to the success of all sports people. For different reasons professional football players, professional golfers, professional tennis players and professional swimmers come under more pressure.

You could say that soccer, golf, tennis and swimming is psychology played out on pitches, lawns and pools.

It is fascinating how we are able to precisely predict a professional sports persons form for each competition based on our methods and confidence code.

Where a confidence gap exists the most important confidence boosters are demonstrating  how you learn best in the way that you process information differently from your teammates and coaches.

When we flick the switch players remember strategy effortlessly and have the keys that they particularly need for individual plus team success and performance.

You see, different personalities develop confidence in different ways.  Purple Success is about knowing these different keys for different people.  Plus, creating balance for each individual, the group and the whole environment.

It is always a fascination to us that in education people expect 30 people to be thrown together in the same room.  No wonder the system does not work.  Sport is no different.

Why Talking Doesn’t Change the World – What I Have Learned in 6 Years, Dr. Naoise O’Reilly

Content-EvolutionWhy is it so hard to change the perceptions of dyslexia and other conditions in education?

It would be so easy if all you had to do was talk about your story or be academically brilliant to change not only how others achieve but perceptions of what they can achieve.

I have always wondered why ideas of what dyslexics can do have not changed with all the successful famous people from Jamie Oliver to Albert Einstein. If all these people had done so much before me, why was I told at 17 I could not do any of it and that going to college was and I quote, "above my status".

If only what you had done could change the perceptions of how others approach the next generation.

One of the biggest frustrations for me was it never mattered what I had done before - I was always judged at the next stage of education. So even though I got over 500 points in my leaving cert and was in the 25% of the country the year I sat it when I got to college, lecturers refused to help me with notes because "I shouldn't be there and sure what was I going to do in the future anyway" and when I got a 1st for my degree and went on to my PhD I was given a lecture on the pyramids of education in my viva as to why I didn't deserve to be there at this level. It never mattered at any level what I had done before or what others had done before me. There was still a concrete idea that I couldn't be academically successful.

But almost 6 years on since I started my own education projects to develop methods to change education I now understand why I didn't want to be a motivational speaker. Why my approach has all been about action.

In order to really change the patterns of generations and the educational blueprint that has built up over decades you have to create an experience for people. They have to feel and know the difference.

In order to be truly successful people have to experience what it is like to learn differently - they have to understand how they absorb information, how they process it and how they can be truly successful.

Yes, the methods seem very simple to me and are easily applied to all as they are universal but the crux is that they have to be applied to real people. Then for every person I help to see differently and every family that is successful or every business they will approach the next set of people in a new light. I was told recently that "you have made me look differently at my employees and I can see how they learn now" and this was from working with someone's child. But by understanding their own child in a different way now from experience they see their own employees differently. I have always thought that business had the ability to drive education and that is why I work across both sectors now.

When I set out almost 6 years ago I had three objectives:

1: Literacy and intellegnce not in the same sentence.

2: Make school more enjoyable for everyone.

3: Make companies understand how everyone works differently and stop focusing on the difference.

I guess I have added a 4th one - to make everyone successful.

Almost 6 years on I have a set of methods to apply universally to the whole world to do just this - but it'll never be about me just talking about them. It's all about making as many people as possible experience something new that will gradually change the world over time. You can never go back once you have looked at people in a new light. You can never expect a dyslexic to be defined by their reading age once you have seen them get 9 out of 10 in the spelling test or 44 out 45 in the maths test. You now expect them to achieve academically and in life.

I have never been one for talking about what I'm going to do - I always just did it and now I understand why that action changes the blueprint for the future.

I'm an expression developist now because I express myself often but I give this ability to others too.

Dr. Naoisé O'Reilly.

Supporting University Level Repeats, Fails & Assignments

University Level Student Support
University Level Student Support

From my experiences as a University Level student myself, my role as mentor and my various positions within a 3rd level University including MBA Faculty Manager, Acting Registrar and Masters Coordinator I know what it takes to get through college!

Surprisingly the endless swatting of the course material is a very small part of the road to success...

This is why I keep our students doing a "play" program over the summer. There is no point undoing all the progress they have made in a few sort weeks of holidays!

Introduction

Welcome to the Purple Learning Project.

The aim of the Purple Learning Project Foundation is to create a legacy of the methods which Dr Naoisé O’Reilly has developed since 2009.

The methods in learning and personality theory have been developed while working with people of a variety of ages, backgrounds, and cultures. The methods have been applied to the education, business and sporting environments. The ages are in the spectrum of 4 to 70's. The methods include: Purple Profiling, Purple Processing Scales, The Periodic Table of the Development of Results, Forget Phonics Reading Method, Purple Pre-School Success and so on...

There has always been a clear distinction for Dr Naosié in working with people who currently need help within the system and leaving behind something of integrity for the future generations.
