Using different spaces for different results

Using different spaces for different results

In terms of how we make changes, the environment is really important.

In this week’s Prescription for Success I consider the different spaces we use to undertake different tasks and how we can benefit from choosing the right space for each task. Watch the video and test this out for yourself to see if you are using your spaces effectively.

 

This morning it was pouring with rain and I thought “where do I sit to write some blogs, to do my accounts, to work with clients?”  This just struck me as being really important.

I’ve just finished running the first half of an NLP Practitioner Course and in the next half we are going to be talking about anchoring and you can get really anchored in spaces.

I like to sit outside on the decking and have a coffee and do some meditation. I’ve got chickens so I like to sit with the chickens and think about things. I also like to sit down by the river because the river is rushing and it gives a different energy. I like to work in coffee shops.

I think it’s about different sorts of energy. Do you want energy that is quiet or busy or relatively neutral?

I  sit in my kitchen and look out over the garden and that’s where I tend to write my blogs it’s where I get my ideas because there is a lot of information but it’s also quite peaceful.

What are your spaces?

I’d just like to ask you what are your spaces?

So write a list of your spaces. Then list what sort of emotions you anchor to those spaces and what tasks you can do in those spaces and let me know how you get on.  It is a really useful exercise and can be very helpful.

If you want to talk to me about anything about mindset or you are interested in coming on courses, or you just want to get unstuck, as you know I’m known as the ‘Chief Unsticker’  then get in touch, I do a free half hour call where we can have a chat and find out how I can help you.

Until Next Week

How useful is flexibility?

Flexibility

How useful is flexibility?

In NLP we teach the key presupposition that the person with the most flexibility is in charge of the system.  So, how useful is it to us to be flexible?

In this week’s Prescription for Success I talk about how being flexible can help you get the outcomes you desire.  Listen to the video and have a think about how flexible you are and is it working for you.

I’ve recently been really interested in myself because there is something that I would really like to happen which involves another person and they’ve  got a different model of the world.

I really wanted it and I was doing everything I could to get what I wanted but it wasn’t working.

I thought, I’m an NLP Master Trainer and I teach that the person with the most flexibility is in charge of the system and I was aware that I wasn’t being particularly flexible.  So, I took a step back and thought about the results that I really wanted, I then thought about how I could change my communication, my beliefs and maybe my environment so that I could actually influence that result and get the outcome I wanted.

If you are struggling with getting an outcome, ask yourself:

  • What is the outcome I want?
  • Is my behaviour and what I am doing getting me the outcome?
  • Are my beliefs helping me get the outcome?

If  you are not getting the outcome, then think about what you can do differently in order to get that outcome.

I would also say take that positive intention that this is going to happen.

If you are interested in finding out more about this my NLP courses cover all of these things , the flexibility, being in charge of the system is a key presupposition in NLP and it makes life very interesting.

Get in touch  if you’d like to have a chat about courses or you need some help with being flexible.
