Oh to be a kid again! Clean your room – I don’t wanna. Eat your veggies – I don’t wanna. Do your homework – I don’t wanna! The list goes on.
But we can’t get away with that as adults. Well. I know plenty of adults who try!
Quite a few of my clients in fact still have the ‘I don’t wanna’ syndrome and seem to think that the choices that come with being an adult include not doing what you don’t want to do. And, this is true to some degree. If I don’t want to clean my home, I can hire someone. If I don’t want to eat my veggies – the extra layers of warmth on my tummy catch up to me.
So yes, I still have choice. (more…)
The holiday season can be a joyous one. It can also be a hectic and stressful one. So many things to do, people to see, gifts to buy – it can be a bit overwhelming. Today I want to shed a bit of light on a few NLP ways that you can overcome overwhelm and stay calm, cool and collected during the Christmas holiday. (more…)
Time. It’s on a continuum right? It’s sequential and moves from past to now to future. Well, that is at least what ‘they’ say. And, if calendars are anything to go by, ‘they’ are right.

In the reality of my world.

Have you ever experienced happiness? True happiness? Bliss? Joy? Freedom? I’m sure you have! Hopefully quite a bit in your life, but even if its just small touches of these things, that is great.
I work with a lot of people in my coaching practice who are trying to get these things (and more) by doing something. For example “I’ll be happy when I get a new house” or “I’ll be free when I work for myself”… Interestingly, when we put conditions on anything our unconscious mind creates a new set of rules that we then live by. Really, if a person says that they’ll be happy when they get a new house – do they really mean that they won’t be happy until then? No, probably not. But, the unconscious mind is extremely intelligent and takes everything literally.
Would you like to know the true key to ultimate happiness and understanding? (more…)
