I recently attended an NLP training in London given by one of its co-founders Richard Bandler.
Myself and approximately 250 other delegates from the around the world learnt so much during this awesome, empowering and fun week.
We faced our fears and phobias and realized that everything you do in life good or bad, is based on your current beliefs and the choices you make.
To change a negative situation into a positive is as simple as making new and better choices, which have lasting effects, for which you need the right set of strategies…!
Wow! I came away from the training feeling invincible, ready to take on the world, and the one phrase that stuck in my mind from that week, which acted as a powerful motivator was “Just f*cking Do it!”
Now believe me, I am not one for using expletives to either shock, impress or to be vulgar. However, when someone has used one in the right context (if ever there is a right context!), it can surprise you into submission! The context here being – Get yourself out there and make your dreams come true!
I mean when you hear a commanding phrase like “Just F*cking do it” laced with good intentions and a cheeky smile, there really is nothing else to do, but obey it.
It jolts you out of whatever excuses, fears and doubts you have been hiding behind, and makes you suddenly realize the silliness of your procrastination. It makes you take action, however small that maybe..
Well, OMG it really did get the brain juices going for me and shifted me from feeling stuck to very driven.
Now, I consider myself to be a naturally positive person, and a big believer in changing the way you think, so that it changes the view of the world around you. I take my inspiration from the world around me and realized that in order to get the most out life and evolve, you really do need to keep an open mind and stop taking life so seriously.
Femme Entrepreneur Top 3 Coaching Tips to a more Empowered, Successful and Happy You
1) Choose your Friends Wisely – You are the average of the 5 people you continuously hang out with. So if you are not seeing the success you are trying to create, then you need to widen your friendship circle.
Your friends and family, whilst well meaning, will only be supportive to a point, because they care, but may not understand your desire to want to succeed and do better in life more than they think you can.
I am not saying ditch your family and current friends, but to be successful and create the right mindset, you need to look outside your current circle of friends and seek out likeminded people who are going to support you, nurture your gifts and talents and wont be afraid to challenge your limiting beliefs.
2) Surround yourself daily with Positivity– if you want to be successful, you need to act like you already are successful. And that means getting rid of anything that makes you feel crap about yourself, that keeps you in doubt and that keeps you in a negative frame of mind.
Get rid of Negative people in your life – You know the ones: Life’s ‘Habitual Moaners‘. They always see the glass as half empty and complain out of habit and will drag you down with them, if you are not careful!
Ditch watching the News – Its never positive and always full of doom and gloom that keeps you in a negative mindset; If you want to keep up with what’s going on in the world then just stick to reading the headlines only, and NEVER start your day reading/watching the news if you want to start your day and stay in a positive and happy frame of mind!
Stop the Brain Drain! – Stop listening to sad love songs; stop watching sad movies; stop watching/reading stuff that doesn’t empower/enrich or add any value to your life!
3) Stop Comparing yourself to others – Nothing will stop you in your tracks quicker than comparing yourself to others and then telling yourself that ‘you don’t have what it takes because blah blah blah..’.
Instead admire them/Model them and use them as your inspiration. If they can do it, so can you!!
And besides, you DO have something they don’t have – You! You are unique and there is no one else like YOU in this Universe! You have your own style and your voice and there are people out there in the world waiting for someone like you to give them the solution to their problems.
Life is for thriving not just surviving
