There are so many people who either want to be a coach or are already a coach. We are living in a world where people are stressed out and burned out by constant current negativity, past experience, and anxiety about the future, and they're seeking guidance and direction through coaching.
But what does it take to become a coach, or even better — the cream of the coaching crop — an NLP Coach?
Many people try to claim to be a coach without any kind of training or certification. There are even some people out there who claim that certification is just "a piece of paper."
But often, people begin their coaching careers by just giving advice... but when clients hit their "mental barriers" (which always happens) and the advice doesn't work, they don't know what to do. And when their clients aren't getting results, these coaches end up feeling like failures, or suffering from "impostor syndrome."
The fact is, while certification may be represented by a piece of paper, what it represents is deep training that allows you to be prepared to overcome any limits your clients may have. And then you won't feel like an impostor, because you'll actually be changing lives.
So the question is, how will your clients know that you know your stuff and that working with you is better than working with anyone else?Read the rest of this entry »
Time sure is interesting, isn't it?
Sometimes it slips through our fingers like sands through the hourglass, and sometimes it's slow and sticky like molasses.
This week is an important anniversary for me.
It was 22 years ago this week (on March 12th) that I graduated from a fun three-day course to become a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist.
It was the most magical day of my life... why?Read the rest of this entry »
Neuro-Linguistic Programming took the world by storm, with a new empowered way of looking at how the human mind works. Initially developed by Richard Bandler, John Grinder, Robert Dilts, and a hand-full of other pioneers in the 1970s, NLP has expanded greatly, both in usefulness and in Practitioners around the globe.
At its core, NLP is about producing excellence. If you want to produce excellence in any area of life — in your career, in personal relationships, in sales, in sports, in health and fitness, and other areas of life — Neuro-Linguistic Programming is likely to have answers for you.
To begin to define NLP, let's break down the name into its three constituent words:Read the rest of this entry »
I received this question via email today from one of our clients: "If the subconscious mind cannot reason, question, or reject the command you give it through hypnosis, why can't we suggest to it through hypnosis that we make $1,000,000 in 12 months and then expect the subconscious mind to show me the ways? It seems that my subconscious mind is always sabotaging my goals, even when I use hypnosis to suggest the outcome."
This is a fantastic question, and I'm so happy this client asked it, because I believe the answer can help so many people.
Let's first start by clearing up a myth:Read the rest of this entry »
I often get people who ask me the question, "What do I do when NLP doesn't work?"
This seems to me like a trick question, because I have never found a time when NLP doesn't work, as long as the client wants the result and doesn't give up on the process.
But there are often times when an NLP technique (or two or four) doesn't work. Sometimes, it even seems as if your entire NLP strategy doesn't work.
So what do you do? Unfortunately, many Practitioners just give up. Here are four strategies that will help you always get the result with NLP.Read the rest of this entry »
Have you ever wondered how NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming, AKA: The Lost User Manual fo the Mind) came about?
You've probably heard the phrase, "NLP was not invented, but rather modeled."
"What does that even mean?"Read the rest of this entry »
One of the biggest issues we have facing us in the modern world is that people have been conditioned to believe that health is not a personal responsibility.
Society blames health on our genetics, our upbringing, our environment, our government (or lack of government), for-profit corporations, our age... anything BUT the personal choices we have made and the personal choices we continue to make each and every day.
People have been conditioned to believe that health primarily comes in a bottle full of chemicals, reactively given to you only through the permission of a medical system that has assumed far more power than it can competently handle. THIS is primarily why we are in the position of health we are in today as a society...Read the rest of this entry »
So many people say you cannot spot a narcissist or someone with a personality disorder until it's too late, but then they will tell you about the string of narcissists they have been in relationships with.
This is a clue.
While they may not consciously recognize the narcissist at the onset of the relationship the fact they keep "falling" into relationships with them is no accident.
I used to run this pattern myself with BPDs (people with Borderline Personality Disorder. Similar to narcissism, but more toxic). There is definitely something subconscious going on, because "normal" people are not attracted to narcissists.Read the rest of this entry »
Most people assume he's a dirty menace. He's kicked out in the middle of the night because he doesn't have enough money for a cup of coffee.
They don't realize the impossible downward spiral he's stuck in that put him there. They don't know that, even though he is homeless, he cleans and grooms himself every day in a locked Del Taco bathroom and washes his clothes at the laundromat with the precious little money he has to keep his sanity so he doesn't slip down the rabbit hole of becoming a "bum." They don't realize the support of his family and friends has run out (or at least he thinks it has).
They don't know him and they don't want to. Would you want to know him?Read the rest of this entry »
There has been a lot of talk lately about “the five second rule,” the subject of a book and media campaign by Mel Robbins.
The premise is that your brain is your enemy when it comes to success and achievement, so you have to "trick it" to be good at anything.
The author explains how procrastination and apathy caused her life to spiral out of control – a failing marriage, a career she hated, etc. – and the only thing that turned it around and “fixed” her life was counting down backward from five and taking action the second she gets to zero.
