How has 2022 started for you?

If the past year was good for you, what will you introduce to make 2022 even better? And, if looking back at the past year, you see unaccomplished goals and missed opportunities you have the chance to start over with a clean slate. Are you wondering what to do to start the new year right because how you start the new year is likely to set the tone for the rest of the year? This is why we decided to run our annual Team NLP conference with the theme of 'How to Future Proof Your Life' to give you lots of practical ideas and strategies that you can take into your 2022. 

We have 6 Keynote talks to help you create 2022...

  1. So What's stopping you? - Tracey Gray will explore with you the universal law of cause and effect to enable you to crush any limiting beliefs and give you more options and choices.
  2. Improve your self leadership in 2022 -Tonje Aaroe will share content from the 7 Habits of Highly Successful People and learn how to make a...

What contributes to a life worth living?

Last October an influencer of mine, Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, a Hungarian American psychologist, passed away.  He wrote the book 'Flow: The Psychology of the Optimal Experience'.  

“The best moments in our lives are not the passive, receptive, relaxing times . . . The best moments usually occur if a person’s body or mind is stretched to its limits in a voluntary effort to accomplish something difficult and worthwhile”

(Csikszentmihalyi, 1990).

There is an idea that if you just had a bigger house or more money you would be happier.  However, it has been proven that once your basis needs are met, having more of the above does not guarantee happiness.  The ideal state of 'flow' comes when you are in the zone where your level of challenge and skills are equally matched. If you are too challenged it can cause anxiety or if you are not using your skills you are bored.  For example, watching Netflix every night is low challenge/ low...

New Year New You?

goals inspiration mindset nlp Jan 04, 2022
Welcome to my blog where you will find inspiration and actionable advice on how to improve your life using NLP.  

As we mark the end of another challenging year we are all wondering what 2022 holds for us and our families. I have come to realise as we look ahead to the New Year that there is no idyllic 'post-pandemic' future.  Life is a constant process of change and evolution.  There is no return to a pre-pandemic 'normal'. Life will never be quite the same as there is no static normal.  As we all enter 2022, it's dawned on me and probably on you too, that this uncertainty is my life.  However, there is so much we can take control of.  For example, how we think and feel, how we react to our environment and how we choose to grow and develop so we can manage our personal journey with anticipation and motivation rather than fear.   

I am guessing if you are like more than half of those who set New Year's resolutions, that you will lose...

A Christmas Gift From Team NLP

Well what a year it has been yet again...perhaps the difference this year is that many people are feeling that bit wearier and rather dazed after all we have been through.  We are seeing it in our corporate and personal clients who are finding it perhaps a little harder this year to pick themselves up and keep going. 

At Team NLP, we have been very mindful of this and have been digging deeper into ourselves to stay focused, purposeful and optimistic about 2022.  We thought about the contribution we can make to support and help you embrace 2022 so you can future proof your life regardless of what might come your way.  We don't have all the answers but what we do have are a set of skills that make a difference to peoples' lives. 

To this end, today we have launched our second Team NLP annual online conference called 'Future Proof Your Life'.  It is on the 22nd January between 10 - 2pm.  We have 6 members of Team NLP speaking at the conference. ...

What can you do to stand out in the crowd in 2022?

As we begin to think about 2022 and what it will bring for us all, I thought it timely to have a bit of a refresh about the importance of your mindset and why it matters so much.  If you want to stand out for the right reasons in 2022 then read on.....

What is Mindset?

It is your way of thinking which is why it matters. 

In a word, it is your mental inclination or dispositionor your frame of mind.  Your mindset is your collection of thoughts and beliefs that shape your thought habits.  And your thought habits affect how you think, what you feel, and what you do.  Your mind-set impacts how you make sense of the world, and how you make sense of you.

So, your mindset is a big deal.  Have you ever thought about what you focus on?  Are you a glass half empty or glass half full type of person?  Are you reactive or proactive? Are you a radiator or drain on those around you?  Do you prefer to focus on the art of the possible...

Three Ways to Future Proof Your Life

When there is no turning back, then we should only concern ourselves with the

best way of going forwards 

Paul Coelho

At Team NLP we are now gearing up to our conference on the 22nd January 2022 with the title 'How to future proof your life'.  We have six speakers, all members of Team NLP, who will be sharing their top tips on different areas of our lives as we move into uncertain territory again at the start of 2022.  More news about how to sign up next time!  For now keep the date clear!

I thought I would share a few of my early thoughts on the topic to get you thinking...  We often hear that with every challenge comes opportunity. If you have been waiting for a sign to make a change, the next normal may have sped it up for you.  It certainly has for me both in my personal and business life.

3 Tips to Practice

In an already fast-paced and often superficial social media world, the power of authenticity is increasingly gaining popularity....

How Can You Future Proof Your Life?

Well I am back after a few weeks away from blogging. This week I have chosen the theme of 'How can you Future Proof you Life'?  We hear from one of our Master Practitioners who has used NLP to do just that.  And, an important announcement.  So stick around for the whole event!  First let's hear from Rak...

My name is Rak Ladwa, I am a full-time landlord and investor and I’ve also just turned 50!  I chose NLP as a tool to help me overcome blocks from the past and limiting decisions in the present. I wanted to think more positively, to have focus, overcome daily challenges and also set my goals and ambitions for the future.

I’ve known for a long time that certain events from the past have always haunted me daily, events from my childhood, growing up in my teenage years and throughout my young adulthood. Recently in the last 10 years, I was challenged by family politics that's left me in a state that I had experienced growing up of...

How to make lasting change in a post-covid world

I was invited by a buddy of mine, Gerry Murray, who I met a few years ago whilst participating in a neuro science course, to join his pod cast to talk about how to create lasting change in a post-covid world.  I am full of admiration for Gerry as he has a weekly blog, and, it was his blog that inspired me to start writing a regular blog nearly two years ago now. 

We spoke for nearly an hour on the topic of change, both in organisations and for individuals because at the end of the day it is the individuals in organisations that create lasting change. I share my own personal story in terms of how I got to where I am today and I share many of my personal insights into what I have learnt along the way.  Gerry asked me about my book writing career and tips about how my first book 'Change Your Life with NLP' got published and how it made made a real difference to the lives of many people.  

We go onto discuss the importance of inner leadership how this is where...

How to make better choices in your life

goals values wellbeing Oct 24, 2021

When I was thinking about what to write this week it struck me that many of us have decisions to make as we move forwards with our lives following nearly 20 months of lockdowns and restrictions.  Maybe you want to make a change with your job, where you live, your relationship, health and so on.  With so much uncertainty surrounding us, we can often allow ourselves to make a decision too quickly or not all all and stay stuck. The work of Daniel Kahneman is very useful to help us become more aware of how we make decisions and how we can improve our decision making.  It links well with the concepts from NLP about the conscious and unconscious minds. 

On average we all have about 35,000 decisions to make each day. These differ in difficulty and importance. It could be you taking a step to your left or right when walking. Or deciding to take the stairs or lift. If you had to consciously process all these decisions your brain would crash.  The research...
