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...

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?

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...

What's Stopping You?

How are you this week?  Have you ventured out and enjoyed being in the (rather chilly) outdoors?  We have had a couple of outside meals and it was amazing how we adapted to eating outside albeit with several layers on!  We looked rather like the Michelin man....still it was worth it to be with friends and enjoy wonderful restaurant food again.   

I was wondering what to write about this week and I reflected back on a couple of conversations I have had with people not yet ready to create the changes they want in their lives.  After lockdown, we each have an ideal opportunity to re-evaluate where we are in our lives and make some choices about what is going well for us and what we may want to change.  The interesting question for me is why people favour the status quo rather than make any shifts?  

The Beckhard-Harris Change Equation is normally used in the workplace but it struck me that it also works for us as individuals too and it...

Which of your new behaviours will stick after the pandemic?

Hi {{ first_name }},

Our weekly Team NLP blog where you will find inspiration and actionable advice on how to build healthy habits, resilience, and connections in our unprecedented times.

What have you changed? 

When I worked for PricewaterhouseCoopers as a change management consultant we often ran a corporate game with clients called 'the Change Line'.  We spilt the group into two and set up the room with two lines of people so that everyone had a partner that they stood opposite.  We would then ask everyone to turn around, change 6 things about themselves and then turn back around.  Their partner had to say what they had changed.  We did this for several rounds, and, as you can imagine, the game got progressively challenging as everyone had to be more creative with their changes.  After round two, they started swopping items with neighbours in the same row as them and actively collaborating.  There were always lots of lessons to be drawn out of...

Who Do You Think You Are? A Gift for Mothering Sunday

Our weekly Team NLP blog where you will find inspiration and actionable advice on how to build healthy habits, resilience, and connections in our unprecedented times.

Well we finally moved out of our house on the 8th March and into temporary accommodation as we finalise our search.  It is quite liberating being in this in between place as it creates space in the mind to consider new things. I also found that the stuff I sent to the auction did really well....and yet it has been hidden away doing nothing for years.  I am going to buy myself a reward this week and then the rest can go towards the house move.  I can feel a nice new hand bag coming on.  So de-cluttering your life really does de-clutter your mind.  

This week I want to talk about how to prepare yourself for coming out of lockdown. 

Are you ready?  

What are you focusing on?  what thoughts are you having?  Your thoughts are your perceptions about the world.  If...
