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...

Moving onto reset

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

This week I want to talk about moving on from 18 months of constant change and overwhelming restrictions in our lives.  Indeed, life is still full of challenges.  We have been attempting to get to Italy for many months now for a break, and just when we thought we could make our dash from the UK by car, France was put on the amber plus list.  This week France may come off but Italy may go onto the 'watch-list'.  It's exhausting isn't it!  So it is still likely to be some time before our lives can really 'reset'.  It's maybe time to remind ourselves about the link between our thoughts and our health and the fact that we can control our reaction to whatever is happening even if we can't control the event itself.  

I had the pleasure to meet Candace Pert some years ago.  she wrote 'Molecules of...

Discovering NLP and emerging as a new me

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...

Learning to live your true life

So happy to be back blogging this week after a few weeks of moving house and getting back on line.  

As I wondered what to write about this week I was reminded about a client session I am delivering this week on being authentic in the workplace and it got me thinking about the importance of living our real lives.  To help prepare for my session I listened to a keynote delivered by Gareth Thomas.  If you haven't listened to any of his talks on YouTube I would encourage you to do so.  He talks about how his performance had been affected by the weight of hiding his sexuality and how being willing to be vulnerable is not a weakness rather the difference between being good and great.  He said he was performing at about 70% with the weight of what he was carrying and hiding.  Now he operates at 100% and feels free.  When asked about what advice he would give a 10 year old version of himself he said that we all go through life trying to please others...

What changes would you make if you knew you couldn't fail?

It doesn’t matter how you have lived your life until this moment. All that matters is what your dreams are, what you ache for in the future. The only moment is now. Living in the past can slow us down as much as worrying about the future. Change can happen in an instant, in the blink of an eye or the click of a finger, once you have made a decision to go for it. Think about it – you start to create your future as soon as you make a decision.

 I’m curious to know, could your life be better? Ask yourself the following questions to find out:

  • Am I getting what I want out of life? 
  • Do I have stretching goals for the future? 
  • Am I reaching my full potential? 
  • Am I fulfilled by my work? 
  • Is my relationship the way I dreamed about? 
  • Do I have enough money to do what I want to do with my life? 
  • Is my life in balance? 
  • Am I happy with my body shape? 
  • Do I have enough energy to enjoy my day? 

If you answered...

What would happen if you changed what you believe is possible?

‘No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.’ Eleanor Roosevelt

How was your week? Have you downloaded our free Introduction to NLP course yet?  If not, the details are at the end of this blog.  Join the growing group of people who have already made a decision to improve their lives as we come out of lockdown.  

This week I want to talk about our beliefs - particularly what you believe about yourself.  I love the quote at the start of this blog as it is so true.  We choose what we believe about ourselves, although of course, many of these beliefs are formed early on in our lives, and, at an unconscious level.  We do not consciously say to ourselves this is what I am going to believe about myself.  Our beliefs evolve over our lives and then we forget they are just generalisations or something that was true for us back then.  The important thing to remember is that it doesn't need to be the same now.  You know...

How to be happier living in the now

How was your week?  We are living in limbo at the moment in between houses and it is easy to worry about whether our new purchase is going to happen and about things that haven't happened yet and may never happen.  I started to think about how important it is to live in the present moment.  There is only now.  Our experience during each second of our lives is about what is happening now.  If we think about the past, we are remembering the experience in the present moment.  And, if we worry about the future it is our imagination making up a memory that consists of thoughts and feelings about something that hasn't happened yet and may never happen.  Again, we experience it in the now.  Given the fast pace and hectic schedules most of us keep, a base level of anxiety, stress, and unhappiness is the new norm. You may not even realise it, but this tendency to get sucked into the past and the future can leave you perpetually worn out and feeling out...
