WITHIN your business, career, family, finance, health, personal growth, sport, relationships - What specifically would you like to change, as it is, right now?
Perhaps you catch yourself saying "Why does this always happen to me" or "That's just not me."
Do you know what stops you from taking that next step toward something you really want to cause happen?
And also, if you were to know, what drives you forward that gets you closer toward all the things that you really want to make happen?
One of the greatest books I have ever had the pleasure of reading is called - Who Moved My Cheese? by Dr Spencer Johnson. The story is about CHANGE that takes place inside a Maze, where four amusing mouse characters look for Cheese (cheese being a metaphor for what we want in life, whether it is a dream job, big house, flash car, loose weight, better health, etc).
Every single one of us has our own idea of what CHEESE is and we pursue it because we believe it makes us happy. If we get it, we often become attached to it. And if we lose it, or its taken away from us, it can be very traumatic for some.
The MAZE in the story represents where you spend most of your valuable time looking for what you want. It can be the organisation you work in, community you live in, or the relationships you have in your life.
You already know, we are the gatekeepers of our personal thoughts and feelings, nobody else, simple as that. When change takes place around us, and involves us, we associate this difference to either pain or pleasure, which comes from a result of your in the moment thinking.
Emotions can cloud our judgement, but only if we allow them too. Major emotions like anger, sadness, fear, hurt, guilt, are just some of the factors that alter how we function during times of challenging circumstances. Anger can change the way you make important decisions in life, or like wise the fear of failure. Poor emotional control can lead to sloppy or poor decision making skills.
For example, let us take professional sport. The tennis star Andy Murray has too often allowed emotion to dictate his performance levels, especially at the beginning of his career, when he would blow up at the slightest mistake. It wasn't uncommon to see him lose his serve and then explode in a rage. Within no time at all, he would be a set down because he has lost emotional stability. But failure can also happen at the opposite end of the scale for not showing enough passion and commitment during an important fixture. I experience this watching Sunderland AFC.
"Old Beliefs do not lead to New Cheese."
Now, here is an easy question which you will answer with an honest Yes or No - Do your current beliefs support what you want to achieve in the future?
Over my career to date, I have trained thousands of people and the majority of these people really do believe that all beliefs are true, even those disempowering ones. They believe these internal beliefs cannot be changed because that is who they are and have grown to think.
Another one of the most profound experiences I have had with NLP over the years, was during my NLP Practitioner Training, where I learned how to change a limiting belief to a more empowering belief. In all honesty, if it wasn't for this powerful process, I would not be where I am in my life right now. Simple as that!
I made this process work for me because I knew that if I did made the shift, it would open up new doors toward a completely different journey in my life. This is not rocket science because if I can make this work, like millions of other people have done around the world too, so can you.
So, what if you could discover and learn how to deal with change so that you suffer less stress and enjoy more success - What impact would this have in your work and in your life?
And if you could install a new empowering belief that moves you forward toward your Cheese - How different would your future results be?
