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.

ONE of the most profound experiences throughout my NLP personal development journey was during my NLP Master Practitioner training course in Manchester, almost 5 years ago.
As part of our NLP Modelling exercise, we all had to model the behaviour and expertise of our then NLP trainer Bruce Farrow, who showed us how to perform a Board Break elegantly by just using your hand.
The process of doing this involved watching Bruce first of all perform the actual skill. We then asked him specific questions to uncover his values and beliefs, strategies he used from start to finish, and his physiology like breathing and posture. Once we had all the above information, we then had the challenge of installing everything we knew inside of our own neurology to successfully complete the task in hand.
But what actually did happen next ...

HAVE YOU EVER stopped to think about this question ...
"Why DON'T you do some of the things you know you SHOULD do?"
Everything we do, we do for a reason. We may not even be aware of the reason consciously, however there is undoubtedly a single driving focus behind all human behaviour. You probably didn't know about this until now, but there is a driving force controlling you even as you read this text, and this force will be with you for the rest of your days. Everything you and I do, we do out of our need to avoid PAIN, or our desire to gain PLEASURE.
Frequently, during conversations I hear people talk about changes they really want to make within important areas of their life, like business, career, health, personal growth, etc. They may feel frustrated, or overwhelmed, or even aggressive within themselves, because they know they NEED to take action, but really cannot move out of a particular gear called procrastination.
