I returned home from just over 2 weeks in London assisting on advanced Neuro-Linguistic Programming courses with co-creator Dr Richard Bandler…

…back home?

I meet a lot of people while traveling who are returning ‘back home’ after a several months away in a country and culture completely different to the one they normally live in.

And I wonder how much of them is going ‘back’! Because a large part of what was ‘them’ is now gone!

What New Things Are Going With Them…

Your Skin, internal organs, bones, everything you are except your brain cells, all replace themselves, some in a matter of just days, others weeks, months and years. So the person ‘going back home’ physically has changed.

But more importantly what new things are going with them…

The foods and drinks they are consuming have changed and with almost everybody I speak to, it has changed for the better. Healthier cells in a more relaxed, refreshed and rejuvenated body are ‘going back’.

Their knowledge and understanding has increased especially in the case of people who went away to learn and study. And this new knowledge and understanding, this new perspective is going onward with them. Typically the people I meet learned more about Yoga, Ti Chi, or meditations and change techniques… their neural networks now contain new learnings.

So Are You Really Going Back…

What if you are ‘Going Onward’ rather than ‘going back’?

What’s next? Where next... because ‘next’ can be a place you’ve been to before!

How different are these two sentences when you say them to yourself… and what about when you say them about you to other people?

“I’m going back home”

and

“I’m going on to my home town next”

With the second sentence there is a sense of adventure. This is where you are going next. For me there is more movement in the second sentence, things are happening.

Now most people don’t go away for months at a time…

NLP LondonI’ve just 'been' to London for two weeks.

Even the word 'been' or ''been away' and ‘go’ or ‘going away’ imply returning... i.e 'back'

Well if you’ve been somewhere to learn, grow and develop or even just to relax, you take more than you ever thought back with you.

From brand new taste buds, understandings about the world and your inner world. Even if you’ve been away for just a week (If you’d been at the seminars I was just assisting on with Dr Richard Bandler, you would be taking away a whole new set of learnings, beliefs, skills and new positive attitudes about life!).

I like to think of it as ‘going toward’ rather than ‘going back’. It keeps the adventurer in me excited…

You NEVER go back. It’s completely impossible on any level!

Physically, mentally even spiritually you are different. Remember that Zen saying you can never step in the same river twice. The water has moved on… Well so have you and hopefully in a positive direction.

How big you make that is Up to you!

Deliberately planning for and doing things to enhance your personal, spiritual and physical development exponentially increases the effect and therefore your results.

Or in other words it’s time to plan for cool shit to happen!

If At First You Don’t Succeed…

Recently I was talking with someone who was using a feeling of worthlessness to motivate themselves to do better next time. In fact this person couldn’t even see a way of looking at it differently. They were stuck in that pattern of behaviour. Ending the work day feeling like a failure. Those feelings create bad brain waves, they literally create bad brain chemistry. And that also affects your body. It’s a demotivating, unproductive thing to do.

People who learn to play guitar or card sleight-of-hand, or anything that requires practice are more likely to succeed if they are enjoying it. When you learn something you have to practice it over and over again and in some cases you may get it wrong dozens of times before you get it right once, (before then getting it wrong again many times more). If every time you get it wrong you feel bad, the bad feeling are going to be huge!

If instead you feel nether good or bad (driven maybe…) when getting it wrong, but when you get it right you feel good, you are going to be drawn towards it.

Effortless-SuccessI directed the person to my FREE Effortless Success Activator PDF and Mp3. This reveals how to deliberately ‘think on purpose’ to get their desired result. How to attach good feelings to the things you want more of.

So that instead of feeling bad about not getting everything done that day, they can instead deliberately think about tomorrow and ramp up the motivation.

Getting Your Effortless Success Activated.

First is getting in a good state, because good decisions are never made from a really bad mood. Then second is getting more and more excited about some of the things you are looking forward to doing the next day.

With those wonderful feelings the trick is to think about a specific activity, thinking about doing it and enjoying it. Picturing doing that activity and feeling good. And the good feeling feels even better the more you take time to think about it and plan to have a good day tomorrow.

Henley FringeSo the day after spending just over two weeks in London, assisting on the Master Practitioner and the Advanced Strategies Seminars I ‘went to’ my home and ‘on to’ the Henley-on-Thames Fringe Festival. To the Crystal Garden in fact… and I experienced both a Chakra Massage and a Chakra Crystal Healing, then I had a green tea in the market place with my wife…

Do I believe in Chakra Crystal healing and massages? Of course belief is a powerful tool for change, but that’s for another day, the fact is they both told me only positive things about how well aligned and balanced my chakras are.

It was a Good day 🙂

Making Sure Your Journey is Moving in the Right Direction and Become an Adventurer:

  • You NEVER go back. It’s completely impossible on any level!
  • Deliberately plan things to enhance your personal, spiritual & physical development
  • If at first you don't succeed... feel nether good or bad BUT when you get it right feel great!
  • Get Your Effortless Success Activated.

And The Adventure Continues…

Tomorrow I am ‘going to’ teach my 9 year old nephew the NLP spelling strategy (he’s a keen learner but is not getting spelling) and I’m ‘going to’ cook them a feast of Indian food for their evening meal.

The day after that, I’m ‘going to’ another adventure…

    Thought provoking as ever, thank you John. I love the notion of going onward and ‘what next’… when I got married a few years ago, I was advised to have something else planned for after we returned from honeymoon, something else to look forward to and I’m so glad we did. Loving the Effortless Success Activator btw.

      Hi Helen,

      Thanks 🙂 Words are powerful… they shape and create the reality (tunnels) we choose to view the world through.

      When wintering in the cold months of January and February in the UK I always used to plan loads of exciting things…

      Glad your enjoying ESA 🙂

      Peace,
      John
