So I’m sitting in the back of the Foundations Of Coaching Training Weekend in Sydney today and its taken me back what seems like a hundred years to January 2009 when I walked out of my own intake weekend.
Listening to Joe speak again this morning about who we need to BE to be a great and successful coach… brought me straight back to my roots.
That feeling of self asuredness, confidence and motivation; ready to take on the world!
I left my training weekend ‘being’ a different person, I saw the world differently, I felt different, new almost, and I was certainly not telling myself the same old storythat I had done for years…
My RAS was busy seeking out a new reality.
Thing is, because for most of us our old patterns in life are so ingrained that it takes a little bit of time and effort to fully instill our new belief systems. The way you now see the world is a way of life that is often new to us. This is becuase our RAS is seeking to forge new pathways, new opportunites and new ways of ‘being’. We must work at it. It is not something that is going to come straight away.
Its my belief, from what I have seen in myself and my experience with others that when we go ‘baack to reality’ it can be easy to get caught up in the old and easy day to day that were were so used to. Our mini-me pops up recurringly and we can get so caught up in ourselves, our self talk, and our limiting beliefs that as time goes by that sometimes we forget the feelings of certainty, assuredness and motivation that we experieced the Sunday afternoon after our first weekend training.
So how do we move through this?
We choose our state, which means we manage ‘who and how we are being”.
You know from NLP that we can choose out state at any time. We can choose to be happy, sad, certain or unsure in any moment.
You also know that your physiology creates your psychology. Sit slumped and looking down talk really slowly you will start to feel feelings of ‘being down’. Stand in front of the mirror and stare at your reflection giving the cheesiest grin you can and you will instantly start to feel a happier, lighter ‘being.’
So armed with this information now how can you change who you are being to get the results you want to get?
Re create your reality now. Go back to a time, it may be for you the Sunday of your intake weekend, when you felt the happiest, most excited moment you can remember.
What are you seeing? What do you feel? What are you telling youself? Really go there, back to that space in time; what do you hear?
How you going? Are you there yet?
Now sit up straight, put a smile on your dial, clap your hands 3 times and say “I rock, I am a learning Machine!”
You see you can absolutely change your state and therefore your results in any moment.Google+
