What do you Want?

Monday, March 22nd, 2010

question-mark

Most people don’t get what they want in life because they don’t know what they want. They may have a vague idea, but they can’t articulate clearly what true success means for them. In fact, when I ask people what they want, nine times out of ten they tell me what they don’t want. They say things like:

     

    • “Well, I don’t want to be broke anymore.”
    • “I don’t want all this credit card debt.”
    • “I don’t wanna argue with my husband.”
    • “I sure don’t wanna be fat.”

    Those are good answers to the question, “What don’t you want?” But I’d asked them, “What do you want?”

    There’s a big difference between knowing what you don’t want, and knowing what you do want. That distinction is going to be the key to your success.

    If you’re thinking about what you don’t want, that’s what will show up in your life. What we think about, we bring about. So if you think consistently about what you don’t want, then that’s what will manifest in your world.

    Another thing that people do in response to the question, “What do you want?” is to tell me not what they want, but what they think they can get. This can also limit your results for two reasons. First, it may set your standard very low and put in motion a pattern of negative thinking. Second, it may not be what you really want, so there’s no passion in the dream!

    The human spirit will not invest itself in mediocrity, and you need that human spirit to achieve what you want. Your goal should be so exciting that you have butterflies in your stomach! That’s how you unlock the power of the mind and put it to work for you!

    What is NLP?

    Thursday, October 1st, 2009

    Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) is a set of specific techniques that deliberately restructure toward positive functioning of the brain’s thinking and the body’s behaviours by aligning the conscious with the unconscious mind and body. NLP offers highly refined tools to take charge of every area of life in the most effective way possible to produce results. It enables individuals to proactively design their physical and emotional responses.

     Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) is a set of specific techniques that deliberately restructure the brain and the body’s behaviours toward positive function through the alignment of the conscious and unconscious mind and body. NLP offers highly refined tools to take charge of every area of life in the most effective and efficient way possible to produce results. It enables individuals to proactively design their physical and emotional responses and therefore, their results.

     The three components of NLP are:

     NEURO

     The nervous system’s taking in of life or reality through the five senses

    • Sight (Visual)
    • Sound (Auditory)
    • Touch (Kinaesthetic)
    • Smell (Olfactory)
    • Taste (Gustatory)

     Understanding how the body and mind neurology works to better direct it toward more effective thoughts and behaviours.

     Creating new neurological pathways that break through mental boundary conditions.

     LINGUISTIC

     Becoming aware of how communication occurs within self and with others;

    • Pictures
    • Sounds
    • Feelings
    • Tastes
    • Smells
    • Internal dialogue

     Using language to guide the mind toward change.

     Speaking to others within their particular representational system or their model of the world.

     PROGRAMMING

    Understanding the mind is like a computer with though patterns as the software and discovering what programs are determining current experience.

    Using specific tools and techniques to reprogram, upgrade and install new software for optimal high performance.
