How to maintain your focus

MAINTAIN YOUR FOCUSHow to maintain your focus

Your emotional state affects your focus.

You can call your emotional focus an emotional state and even a behaviour as it is something you do.

What happens is that what you see, hear, feel and say to yourself is filtered and becomes your reality. That then creates an emotional state which then creates your behaviour.

In this week’s Prescription for Success I discuss how to maintain your focus and consider how your emotional state affects your behaviour and hence impacts on your focus.  Watch the video and let me know what you think.

If you want a focused behaviour then you need a good emotional state, you need positivity rather than negativity.  In a previous blog  we talked about how to get rid of your negative feelings and experiences, limiting beliefs  and behaviours so that you can become positive.

I was talking with someone recently, who has done a significant amount of work with me, and because he didn’t have much sleep the night before he was in a physiological state that also created an emotional state that was a bit negative.  So, he was feeling a bit stuck, had some doubts and he wasn’t taking all the action that he needed to.

After talking it through he realised that he was taking a huge amount of action to get a significant goal however he just needed a few systems around it. As we talked, his emotional state changed to positive so we anchored that emotional state and he can now go through the day feeling positive.

In order to maintain your focus you need a positive emotional state. It comes from your physiology, your reality and from removing all the things in the past that we discussed in the previous blog.

So if you are having trouble maintaining your emotional state to be positive then get in touch it’s quite easy to sort out using Time Line Therapy and some other NLP techniques

If you are a coach or someone who wants to learn these techniques then I do four NLP practitioner courses a year and I also train up to ‘Trainers training’ so that you can train other people to do these things.

If you are interested just book an appointment and we can have a chat about how I can help whether its for you personally or for you to work with other people.

Until next week,

How your motivation helps you focus

MotivationHow your motivation helps you focus

In order to focus, you need some sort of motivation.

Our motivations are either ‘towards’ what we want or they are ‘away’ from what we don’t want.

In this week’s Prescription for Success I explain how ‘away’ and ‘towards’ motivations influence us and help us to focus. Are your motivations ‘away from’ or ‘towards’?  Watch the video and let me know what you think.

If you’ve had some things happen to you in the past that are particularly upsetting or have given you negative emotions – anger, sadness, fear, hurt or guilt, or you’ve developed some really powerful negative beliefs, these can stop you from focusing on your motivations.

What happens is you become attracted to these negatives and you get stuck in the past so you’re motivated by the things you don’t want to happen. Your past is driving you to the future but it’s s still there.

Alternatively, when you’re focused on your future and what you really want in your future then it’s really easy to move forward.

‘Away’ and ‘towards’ motivations are really key to focus.

You can get rid of the ‘away’ from motivations by doing something like Timeline Therapy or any other NLP techniques that deal with emotions and values. Then your values will become clean, and uncluttered by the past and you’ll be able to move forward into the future.  You will be totally focused then on your future and enjoying the present taking the action you need. That’s what I do in Breakthrough Therapy and also what I teach on NLP courses.

So if you’re interested in this or if you feel like you’re not really heading towards the motivations you want and you’re stuck in the past and finding it difficult to focus then get in touch as I can sort that out for you really quickly.

Where to put your focus

focusWhere to put your focus

I recently worked with quite a few clients who were putting their focus in a place where they didn’t want to. They wanted to put their focus in the ‘now’ or in the future rather than in the past however, they were focusing on the past.

Quite often these people have a really nice life and they are doing really well but they have just created a story for themselves about how much better their life would be if their past was different.

In the week’s Prescription for Success I share with you how you can change your focus from the past to the future so that you can live the life you want and enjoy the now. Watch the video and let me know what you think.

I tidy up the past because the programming from the past puts beliefs, decisions and negative emotions, that might be limiting, into your head.  To go for the future and what you really want then you’ve got to tidy up the past. So in order to tidy up the past so that you can create a future and do what you really want to do or even just be in the now, I use a process called  Time Line Therapy. It doesn’t take very long, just a few hours and is done in the context of a consultation in an intensive coaching session over a period of a couple of days.

The past becomes no longer relevant and you can just move on and enjoy the now and go for the joy in life. If that’s what you are looking for and you just want to ‘tidy up’ the past then just get in touch  I do a free 30 minute consultation and we can get it sorted for you really quickly.

Until next week,

Dr Bridget – Focusing on the now!
