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. They think that talking to their family members or friends about their problems will do the job, and perhaps even better, because the family member or friend knows and will understand them.  Here’s why this approach won’t work and coaches have tremendous value in and to the society.

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 »

If you travel by air, you know that when your plane takes off, the pilot tells all the passengers to stay in their seats with their seatbelts buckled.  At times during the flight the pilot will warn “We expect turbulence for a few moments, so please stay buckled up.”  When you start any new lifestyle, job, business, or transition, you too will experience turbulence.    Read the rest of this entry »

NLP and To Do Lists

Filed Under (Life Coaching & NLP) by NLP-Life-Coach on 04-12-2011

Tagged Under : , , , , , , ,

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 »

Dreams, Dreaming, and NLP

There’re many theories about why we dream.  Dreaming is purposeful, not the result of random brain activity while we sleep.  Dreaming is thought of as the unconscious mind’s way of processing the day’s events, sorting through memories, learning from what has happened, and planning the future.

NLP and Language

Language is in the heart of NLP and in its very name too!  NLP means Neuro-Linguistic Programming. Here I concentrate on the linguistic part of our programming.  So language definitely deserves a huge chapter!  Language is important because be it verbal or nonverbal, it is the basis of communication of living creatures.  Animals have their language.  And if language wasn’t important, would people develop hundreds of its forms?  How is NLP connected with language?  And what tricks can an NLP-lay member of the general public take home from this blog and apply to his/her life?
