Do You Focus on what you CAN change or what you CAN’T change?
I’m interested in what you concentrate or focus on? Often my clients will have noticed that they are concentrating on the things that they can’t change , and often can’t get them out of their head. And as you know, what you focus on is what you get, so I’m all about changing that pattern of thinking. If you’d like to do that as well, watch the video, have a think about whether this applies to someone you know or even yourself and get in touch:
Often this pattern of negative thinking, or concentrating on what you can’t change, will last for days, weeks, months or often years and will eventually start to affect the results in your life and the people around you.
I’m OK with saying that it happens to me sometimes, and to clients that I’ve worked with, but it doesn’t last very long as our unconscious mind kicks in with the positive learnings. I’m generally a positive person who focuses on the future and positives and solutions.
I think this is why NLP – Neuro Linguistic Programming- appeals to me.
It helps us to find habitual patterns that don’t serve us and remove them, leaving us free to concentrate on things we CAN change rather than things we can’t. And it’s not about what’s happened- it’s about what patterns need changing, and then changing them really quickly.
The difference between the change that counselling, or other talking therapies, give people and what NLP gives you is simple:
- It’s quick and effective
- You will be working with the part of your mind that is responsible for change – your unconscious mind
- It’s comfortable as it doesn’t focus on the story, just the patterns
Either way, everyone that works with me changes the patterns that are not helping them to get the future they want and deserve.
If you’d like to change the patterns that you are running in your head or your behaviour, then get in touch and let’s start that change process.
See you next week,
