NLP (neurolinguistic programming) is the art of turning language into action. In this longer episode (20 minute) Linda walks you through the four stages that transform an idea into something you do to get a result you like. You can get more background on NLP and more details about the four stages by reading this Free E-book.

You might be in a slump or a losing streak or a you might just hate the holidays. It's a time of year when many people add up their accomplishments and treasures and they feel beat up instead of pumped up.
If that's you, take a few minutes to listen to these three steps that will help you keep going until you notice that things are getting much better.

Much of the work we do as coaches consists of helping people figure out what it is they want. In this 5 minute audio, you'll get a chance to think about three important questions:
- When you think about what you want next, what is non-negotiable?
- How have you been following your values in the choices you've been making about what to do (and what not to do)?
- Where do you want to be in 2022 and what do you have to do now to get there (hint: start with being clear and vivid when you think about 2022)

A strategy is a set of perceptions and behaviours that occur in a particular sequence to reliably achieve a specific result. Any reliable result is generated by a strategy - even if it is a bad habit or a response you don't find useful. The way to change a result is to alter at least one element in the strategy so that the strategy can no longer function to get that result.

I bet you've failed at something, and I bet you hated the experience. When we think of our failures, they can sting, even years after they happened. That sting gets in our way: it stops us from pushing past limits and learning and trying new things.

Take about 10 minutes and think first about why you might want to clear your head. Is it crammed with different priorities and information? Is it too full of past experience to move toward a better future? Maybe you need to let go of old learning to accelerate your progress in a new situation.

When there's too much in your head, too much going on inside you and around you, it's time for a little will power. You don't need to build barriers or use force. You just need to step back and ask "what's the one thing I want to do right now?" And then, when you know what to do, ask yourself "what state will support me in accomplishing just this one thing?" The way to trigger that state is to look for tiny changes you can make in yourself, your actions or your surroundings. Each change that begins to create the desired state is a small win. A series of these small wins leads to the state, which leads to accomplishing the goal. And as soon as you have, you can ask yourself again, "so what is the one thing I want next?"

Listen to this episode to discover how easily you are led to accept ideas that come from a trusted source in a relationship you value. Whether you are making or taking suggestions, it's appropriate to also take a deep breath and ask yourself: is this really what I want? how much of this motivation is a desire to stay connected? what else do I want now?

I am often approached by people I have trained in NLP with questions about how hypnosis would benefit them. I am not a hypnotist and I have not completed a certification in hypnosis, but I spend a lot of time looking for models of excellence and asking questions about what perceptual processes and states support high achievement.
