I cannot stop but smiling. 🙂
He’s a living legend. He’s smart, witty, and he’s profoundly changed the lives of countless individuals all around the world.
I think about Dr. Richard Bandler, a co-creator of NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming), a methodology to understand and change human behavior-patterns. He’s the guru and one of the founding fathers in the field of personal development.
A talent, I’ve been admiring for years and have been honoured to learn from and be inspired while levelling up my NLP skills last week in London.
What I want to share with you from training with Dr. Bandler is this one simple yet very powerful idea which – when applied can help you live a wonderful career and life.
And that is – “The quality of your life depends on the quality of questions you ask to yourself”
So stop for a moment and think – What are the type of questions that you continuously ask in your own mind?
Do they discourage or empower you?
Have a look at these examples and – how can you turn your questions around so that they serve you and your goals:
… Why this is always happening to me? OR … What can I learn from this experience and do better next time?
… This isn’t working, why even bother continuing? OR … How can I adjust my strategy and look at it from a different perspective to achieve my goal?
… I don’t know anything about it, why am I fooling myself? OR… From whom can I learn this skill? Who is already doing what I most want?
This simple and yet powerful shift in asking questions – will trigger your mind to find you better answers and better solutions that will lead – to more fulfilment and more satisfaction in your business and life.
Because the moment you start asking yourself smarter questions – your whole neurochemistry will change. Your body will start producing more of the happy hormones, you’ll feel better, and as a result take smarter actions.
It’s that simple: “If you change the way you think, it changes the way you feel, therefore it changes the way you can do.” – Dr. Richard Bandler.
