The 'Inside Out' programme is about the pursuit of balance, a balance between our internal value structure and external societal influences which directly impact on our decision making, beliefs, habits, opinion’s, methods of communication, rating system and desires. The way we see the world and all it presents determines our reality and creates our destiny.
Our personal and professional development is underpinned by the way we think about ourselves, the people that surround us and the events that take place in our lives. Our thoughts create our experience, our focus creates our reality. Everything that comes into our lives, we attract to it via our thought process and the images we hold in our minds. Our conditioned mind then seeks to recreate and attract what it knows and what is familiar.

The 'Inside Out' programme works on the basis of "what's going on the inside determines what happens on the outside". The subconscious mind is like a computer, working around the clock recording and storing in its memory bank all of the experiences, emotions, habits and attitudes, information and messages it has received since we were born. The subconscious has no reasoning ability; it works with automatic and unquestioning accuracy upon the plans and concepts which are fed into it. What we put in we get out.
