New Beginning

How many people have asked you over the previous week or so…. ‘Do you have any New Year Resolutions’?  To which most people respond either ‘No’(!) or, ‘I’m going to try and lose weight’, or ‘I’m going to try to give up smoking’. Perhaps you may have heard ‘I’m going to try and get a new job’?

The part of this that always strikes me as odd is the word ‘try’. If you ‘try’ to do something, you are generally expecting to fail! ‘I’ll try and lose weight’… No, just do it! ‘I’ll try and quit smoking’… no… Just do it!

There is no great secret to it, other than a personal commitment from yourself to do so… and if you REALLY wanted to change something, why wait for the start of a new year, a new month, a new week?  Through many years of conditioning, the mind has learnt behaviour that says it’s ok to start again.  Think back in time to early school days, when perhaps a drawing or painting that in your opinion went wrong, was erased from your memory by a new, clean, fresh sheet of paper?  Who remembers getting that new, clean, fresh exercises book at school, where the first few pages had the most beautiful, carefully written text…. and then the handwriting degenerates rapidly?!

In virtually everything we do, business, sport, hobbies, life…. our mind likes a ‘fresh start’. But that is simply conditioning (or programming) and there are no rules to say that must be so. Break the rules, re-condition your personal conditioning.

Your mind will generally do what it thinks is best for you, what it ‘believes’ makes you happy… which is exactly why we all to often succumb to temptation! One chocolate, one glass of wine, one cigarette, one desert won’t hurt us, will it? But one soon becomes two, as the cravings inside your mind say to you… ‘See, I knew that would make you feel good’!

If you want to change something, the BEST time to change it is NOW. If you have to wait, then you are not fully committed and will more than likely fail.

 

Break the chain

Those of you that have goals for 2018, how many have planned those goals or at least written them down? What is it you want to achieve by ensuring those goals are met?

We have delivered many workshops in the past that focus on goal achievement, and recently there have been further requests for similar workshops. If you feel you, a colleague or friend, would benefit, then simply drop us a line, like and share this post and we’ll make it our ‘goal’ to organise a workshop.

So whatever YOU decide YOU want to change, make a commitment to YOURSELF to do so.

Have  great New Year, be happy in whatever you do.

Start Life.001

On the 17th November 2012 we will be running a one-day Meditation, Hypnosis and NLP Training Day in Essex.

The day has been developed to give you a real-life, involved insight into the power of Meditation, Hypnosis, NLP and Quantum Thinking. The benefit to you is that you will be able to experience, first hand, some of the cutting edge skills and the technology that can literally change your life in a heartbeat.

WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY?

If you were to ask yourself, ‘What makes me happy’ many people will cite material wealth such as the latest Smart Phone, or a trip to the Beauty Salon, yet these external influences on our life, research tells us, accounts for less than 15% of happiness.  So just what is it that makes us happy?  In the modern world the increase in world income and standards has increased significantly over the last 50 years, two-car families and a TV in each room is becoming more and more commonplace, yet depression is now ten times more prevalent than it was in the 1960’s.  There must be more to happiness than material wealth, wouldn’t you say?

WANT TO IMPROVE YOUR HEALTH & WELL-BEING?

On this training day we will teach you the true benefits of meditation and how it can have a positive impact on your health and personal well-being.  Indeed, the benefits of meditation are now so well scientifically proven that NICE (the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence) now approve its use for people who suffer depression.  Additionally, another major benefit of meditation is that it can help you become more creative – surely a must for any developing business, together with reducing blood pressure and preventing strokes.  Think about this; it could add 30 years to your life?

WHY NOT BECOME LUCKIER? 

Do you know someone who is ‘lucky’? Always seeming to be in the right place at the right time?  Would you say they are optimistic at all?  Optimistic people have healthier hearts, and optimistic people are luckier.  In essence, the fact of the matter is, that if you believe that you will be lucky you are actually likely to become luckier.  On this day we will show you how you can use simple, everyday techniques that will help you increase your ‘luck factor’.  That alone is surely worth an investment on this day, don’t you think?

You will learn how to use hypnotic techniques to hypnotise yourself, and others, as well as discovering a whole raft of powerful information and evidence as to how you can use your mind to literally affect your body in more positive ways.  Now, before panic sets in, this is not about mind-control or making people do things against their will.  Hypnosis is merely a focused state of awareness that allows you to communicate with your unconscious mind at will, ensuring you access and tap into the infinite, unending possibilities that exist inside of you, right now.

On the 17th November, you will also learn how you can use hypnosis to increase positive change in your life and the lives of others.  Hypnotic techniques are used every day by advertisers and sales people for example, to make you buy things that you don’t necessarily need or want!  Can you imagine being able to turn the tables on them to gain discounts or prices that you want?  How much is that worth to you, personally?

The skills and techniques that will be shown to you on this one day event have been put together specifically to help you make better choices and/or give you more of a direction in your life, and we have been doing this now for a number of years and have achieved great results for many people like yourself, so we are confident that you will enjoy and benefit from the event.

Think about this. You are probably reading this on your computer right now, so consider the following question – when was the last time the software on your computer was updated? Probably every day or week if you have automatic update selected, and it would be very rare nowadays for anyone to have a 20 year-old computer on their desk running 20 year-old software! If you did you would probably find that the computer runs slow (if at all), it is plagued with viruses, the software programmes you use regularly freeze and what you are outputting is possibly even totally incompatible with what people are using today, which limits your ability to communicate effectively with other people who are using more advanced technology.

Now transpose that analogy over to us as human beings. Many of us are possibly running outdated software in terms of how we think today. The ‘programming’ that we will have received in our distant past when we were younger may have been suitable then, but is it still suitable for the way you live your life today? Is the way you think today, really compatible with the output you want from your life for now or in the future? Some of us may actually be running 20 or 30 year-old thinking patterns and wondering why we are not achieving what we want from our lives. But if this was the case with your computer, you’d get it upgraded or replaced possibly immediately. So why not show yourself the same courtesy.
