Yup ! Thatâ€™s what I told a participant last year during POE. (opps, Adam, Stuart: If you are tuning in, please DONâ€™T kill me =p)
This lady obtained her â€˜Certified NLP Practitioner â€™ from somewhere else earlier. She asked me if I think a particular technique will work. So I simply told her this: NLP donâ€™t work if you donâ€™t have the basic INTENTION in the first place. (erm, I still remember the shock look and her face. Ha Ha ! ) To change, we must want to change first ourselves. Else, all these tool are useless. These tools aids us in accelerating our goals but not â€˜changeâ€™ us to achieve our goals.
The incident I recalled earlier reverberated strongly in my head due to someone I met two weeks ago.
LC (in her mid forties) was a seamstress I met two weeks ago. Her story has put me to shame. She lost 15 kg over 6 months by just going for casual jogs in the morning and sashaying on the dance floor (in the CC) in the evenings.
Does she have a personal trainer ? NO !
Does she have a yoga club membership ? NO !
Does she have a coach ? NO !
NO NO NO !
She is not well educated and does not have access to many resources unlike us.However, by just the sheer POWER of her INTENTION, she managed to achieve her goals. Opps ! Where does that leave us ?
