Suggestions can be more powerful than commands

July 22nd, 2016 · Comments

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?

Hypnosis for High Achievers

July 17th, 2016 · Comments

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.

In this episode, I'll explore the possible role of hypnosis in supporting the disciplined practice necessary to reach the top of any field. And I'll look at why deeper trances are unlikely to make the finely tuned behavioural change necessary for people who are already good to reach the next level of achievement.

How to Find Inspiration

July 2nd, 2016 · Comments

If you want to be inspired, you have to go looking for inspiration. Take a few minutes to let Linda guide you into your own experience, into landscapes with space and movement, and into your connection with people who are energized and engaged by their actions. You can be one of those people, when you begin with a focus on finding inspiration. Build a state that's ready for inspiration and take it back into your day. You will find the inspiration you're looking for.
