Motivation for Exercise When You Hate It

Motivation for Exercise When You Hate It Think about something you absolutely have to do every day.

How to Complete Your “To Do” List

I’m one of those people who make “to do” lists on a clean piece of paper and ideally with an ink pen. I’m not sure why writing it in ink makes me feel better about it, I think it just shows a greater level of respect towards the things I need to do if the… READ MORE

Why Life is Like a Catapult

Ok, it’s one of those analogies that I came up with in the shower yesterday morning. But I’m seriously chuffed with this one. Such that future clients, NLP4Kids practitioners and the companies I mentor are going to get “the catapult talk” if they start telling me that they are struggling to move forward. I was… READ MORE

Step by Step – Making Goals a Reality

To avoid total overwhelm, whatever the challenge you face, you must take it one step at a time.

Not the Right Tools: Leadership and management

I have this friend who is highly articulate, imaginative, creative and pretty darn intelligent.

Thinking Sideways

I recently saw a programme with Peter Jones – The tall one from Dragons Den – and he was talking to successful entrepreneurs. Interestingly it wasn’t just about how they’d made their millions but a study into what makes them think in the way that they do. One of the entrepreneurs story was very interesting.… READ MORE

Your Future Has Arrived

Elegant Arguing

Laying Foundations

A Third of the Way…

I figured to might live into my 90’s and that makes me about a third of the way through my life. There’s actually bits of my life now that happened so long ago, it’s almost like a story about someone I used to know, rather than about me. And I’ve got that thing that happens… READ MORE

Words

It’s interesting how our language and words can have such a huge impact. But when you really think about it, words are just labels. Without their meaning they are just a series of letters that go together to make a sound, without the sound they are just shapes and symbols, yet these little insignificant shapes… READ MORE

The Positives In An Away From

Think positive and always look on the bright side. Focus on what you want. Whatever you think about the universe will send your way. Your thoughts become things. Rubbish.

These are strong emotions that have a sense of security and stability. They meet the need for certainty, which allows you to relax and be completely… READ MORE

Using NLP with “Others”
