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...

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

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...

Exciting Collaboration to Offer ILM Level 5 Online Coaching and Mentoring

There is no better time to become a coach and mentor.  How do I know? 

The early stages of the pandemic and the ensuing lockdowns were hard on all of us, in different ways. Isolation, joblessness, childcare, and many other challenges severely affected the mental well-being of many people around the world. Yet here we are, a year on. How are we coping? 

The physical health effects of COVID-19 and the countless deaths the pandemic has claimed have been, and continue to be, devastating on a global scale.  Many found it hard to cope with the grief and isolation, and others found it hard to deal with job loss and financial insecurity.  These struggles are affecting our mental health and involve some of the key predictors of burnout, including an unsustainable workload, the absence of a supportive community, and the feeling that you don’t have control over your life and work. 

The world needs more coaches to help and support others to take back...

One week to go to our next NLP Practitioner course

Would you like to learn how to be at your best most of the time?  

My NLP journey started back in 1997 when I was a young senior manager at one of the top 4 consultancy firms wanting to make more of an impression amongst a sea of older male colleagues.  It was tough to find a way to be listened to and taken seriously.  Every time i tried to speak up at meetings my voice seemed to get drowned out.  I remember sharing this with my boss at the time and he said he had heard that 'Neuro Linguistic Programming'  was excellent for improving your communication skills.  I spoke to someone who had taken the Practitioner course and they thoroughly recommended it.  Mind you they warned me that I should only take the course if I was really serious about making changes in my life.  I must admit that I was really curious about this and I decided to sign up.  

You realise that it is these moments of decision that change starts to take place and...

What gets in the way of you changing?

Welcome to our blog where you will find inspiration and actionable advice to build resilience and success in these unprecedented times.  

I am often asked why is it so tough to make changes in your life?  So I thought this week I would do my best to explain what happens and what you can do about it.

In an ideal world behaviour change would happen like this…

‘’I know exercise is good for me

Therefore, I am going for a run’’

Wouldn’t it be great if as humans we react positively and change when we learn something that could be good for us?

But, more often we know that we should do something but we choose not to…

‘’I know exercise is good for me’’

‘’But I prefer to stay at home and watch Netflix’’

I am sure that we would all recognise this example.  Even when we understand that something would bring a positive reward, we still choose to do something else.  For example, in...

Discovering NLP and emerging as a new me

goals inspiration nlp Jul 25, 2021

This week we have another guest blog from a member of Team NLP. Maria is one of our newly qualified Master Practitioners.  Over to Maria....

Ever since I did psychology A level I knew that one day I would be working with people, and helping people understand how their mind affects everything in their life. Back then I had never heard of NLP or coaching, and I didn’t know exactly in what capacity I’d be fulfilling my calling.

Fast forward 22 years and I look back on an exciting and rewarding career working in Digital Engineering, and I have especially enjoyed the increasing leadership responsibilities I have picked up over the last 10 years.

I heard about Neuro Linguistic Programming through my osteopath who had trained with Team NLP. After signing up to attend an intensive course in Spring 2020, Covid-19 happened and suddenly the world stood still. The amazing trainers at Team NLP did nothing but – they created an online version of the NLP Practitioner course...
