We all know too well how hard beginning to build or getting back into good habits can be.  Breaking vicious circles  to get into virtuous ones is the hardest thing for many people, which is why many poor or fat people remain poor or fat, etc. But equally, people who have broken the vicious circles and are now riding the virtuous ones will tell you that the pleasure of them is a thousand times stronger and longer than the best orgasm…  They have broken the vicious circles, which suggests that anyone can.

It’s amazing how many people would immensely benefit from coaching, yet don’t wanna pay for it, because their argument is that they can’t afford it or wouldn’t wanna talk to a stranger about their problems.

Many coaches offer the coaching process of 4 or 6 weeks and then offer their clients the possibility to extend the it.  In the field of executive coaching asking clients to prepay 3-month blocks of coaching sessions is standard practice. And now more and more coaches are jumping on the bandwagon by offering 3-month blocks to their life coaching clients.  Why does this approach add more value than the traditional 4 – 6-week approach?  Read the rest of this entry »

So You Say Psychology Isn’t Important?

It’s incredible how many times I’ve heard people [especially in the corporate professions such as transport, law, IT, banking, and a few others] tell me that they were worried about people who take a degree in psychology, because psychology was too wishy-washy, uncertain for the prospect of getting secure jobs on the basis of a degree in it, and somewhat not as important as were their professions [of course they’d say that!].  Their core argument was ‘we need lawyers, we need IT almighties, we need transport, we need bankers, but we don’t really need psychologists’.  These same people would also tell me that the number of people who go for a degree in psychology is the highest of all degrees simply because psychology is the easiest degree to get and if one wants a degree for the sake of the paper to give them the passport to a job in any field, a degree in psychology is an obvious choice without needing too much effort.  But then…   Read the rest of this entry »

NLP for Accumulation

One of the greatest success principles is the law of accumulation. This law dictates that everything great and worthwhile in human life is an accumulation of thousands of tiny efforts and sacrifices that nobody ever sees or appreciates.  Everything accumulates over time.  You have to put in many tiny efforts that nobody sees / appreciates before you achieve anything worthwhile.  It’s like a snowball.  A snowball starts very small and grows as it adds millions of tiny snowflakes and continues to grow as it gathers momentum.    Read the rest of this entry »

Long to do lists are often a challenge for people.  Most people feel demotivated and overwhelmed when they look at a list with more than 10 items on it.  The longer the list is, the more likely we are to focus on the simple tasks we can do the fastest.   We want to start things off quickly, many of us like immediate gratification for their efforts, and it makes the list look shorter.   So we find the easiest tasks to get us going.  We may have the intention to do some more complex tasks later, but invariably get sidetracked.   And by the end of the day the list looks just as daunting as it did at the beginning.  Sounds familiar?  So what’s the cure?   Read the rest of this entry »

Why Help Never Gets to Those Who Need It Most

Filed Under (Life Coaching & NLP) by NLP-Life-Coach on 14-05-2011

Tagged Under : , , , , , , , ,

The answer is simple: because two reinforcing feedback loops operate here.  A familiar name for the reinforcing feedback loops is virtuous circles.  As you’ll see below, these two circles operate at the opposite ends of one continuum, thus in this sense one of the feedback loops / circles will be perceived as virtuous and the other as vicious.  But in the sense of reinforcing the action in itself even the vicious circle is virtuous, because it results in more of the same action and therefore reinforces it.  So why does help never get to those who need it most? I’ll explain by demonstrating the principles of the two opposing reinforcing feedback loops on a few examples.
