Obsessed with life

posted in: Personal | 0

I am obsessed with life. It probably is the best obsession to have. And I cannot get enough of it. Every day is like a blessing, full of wonders, surprises and learning. I love it!

I remember how I was a couple of years back, in a deadend job, that I had to get used to. I had great friends, colleagues, and nice bosses. Yes, more than one. I reported to the US, to Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaysia. Many different instructions to juggle, and when I did something great, I got one compliment, mainly from those that I worked with. When I messed up, I had more than one conversation, haha!

But I knew that there was something else. I didn’t want to stay my whole life as an employee. I didn’t want to do change management work that doesn’t change a thing. I knew that there was a calling in me, a calling for more.

Then I came across NLP – it was a simple 2-days course, but I never looked back. I realised how easy it is to work with and through other people. How we can understand and influence them to initiate powerful change in a win-win situation.

How the unconscious mind, while protecting us, also holds us back with beliefs and values that have been installed a long, long time ago. What to do to talk directly to the unconscious mind. Heck, before NLP, I denied that there even is such thing as an Unconscious Mind.

Yes, I fail, even today, after nearly 5 years in which I have been totally engaged in and with NLP. I fail daily. I feel overworked, neglect my family too often, but I know what I need to do to bring me back on track. To get back into powerful peak performance states.

I enjoy, daily, how wonderful it is to see my practitioners and clients succeed in their challenges. I gave them the tools of NLP to succeed. But there is more to that. Everybody can give you tools. But we teach how to use all the tools in every area of your life to succeed. There is nothing better than to see people transform, and realise that their problems is a thing of the past. To laugh, with us, together at their old problems.

Over the course of 5 years, we developed a pathway to success for our practitioners. I use it myself as well, of course. Pull myself out of the swamp in which I end up every now and then.

And how I fall in love with life, over, and over and over again.

This is the pure beauty of NLP. It is so much more than just confidence and better relationship. That is just the by-product.
