This month, I've decided to put up a recent video interview I did with David Riklan, founder of SelfGrowth.com . I don't do many interviews, and now they are catching me! There will be another this month, as I've been announcing below with Laura Worley and next month, I'll be on the Number 1 Cyber Space Practice Group and Master Class. That information is below.
Do, here is the link to the one with David Riklan:
Thanks, and will some of you in the Orlando seminars shortly!

How has learning NLP enhanced your life? In my case, I think what I learned from Richard, John and Kathleen changed everything for me.
Richard Bandler created something to help us help others. Yet all these skills can equally apply to how we work on ourselves, inside.
When you listen to your own internal dialogue, not just in terms of the content, but all those submodalities that drive the way you feel, how can you use this knowledge to optimise your moments?
As a speaking voice coach, I often help people to sound more exciting, inspiring, motivating or relaxing. Sometimes, I help people to learn how to sound sexier, or just more pleasant. All these vocal skills apply to our internal voice as well as our output.
There are so many ways to say the same thing. The tones and tunes, the energy, pace, volume and quality of the sound can change the meaning, and the results! You can say yes in at least five different ways. Can you make a yes sound like a no! Or a maybe? Can you make a yes sound inviting? Or scary?
A lot of people aim in the wrong direction with their voice. It is not so much whether your voice is lovely to listen to, though it is great if it is. The big question to ask yourself is whether your voice is effective and flexible enough to do the best job, most appropriately for the results you want.
When you want to relax someone, how powerfully relaxing can you sound? I sometimes joke by saying I can put someone into a very relaxed state reading my shopping list to them! Its only partly what you say, and a whole lot of how you say it. And this is just as true for your internal dialogue as your external one.
Next time you sit down to have a rest between tasks, you could experiment with talking to yourself in the tonality of a parent lulling their child into safely sleeping. Find out what it takes to get you from up time to downtime in a flash by altering the internal sound to one that really works for you.
Next time you are struggling with getting something done, how about testing different internal tonality? If you have ever listened to the commentator at a horse race, that could be a fun voice you could talk to yourself in!
If you close one ear and speak out loud, you will find yourself more easily able to hear yourself. Once you have heard the sound on the outside you will most probably find it easier to replicate internally.
Or look for video online and pay attention only to the tones and tunes you like the sound of and copy them, first out loud, listening to yourself, then internally. Each evening I do a very supportive voice in my head that tells me Ive done well with my days achievements and reminds me encouragingly to learn from my mistakes. In the morning, I sometimes listen to the gospel choir Richard installed for me on my Practitioner course, or I do an excited, cheery voice telling me to jump out of bed feeling great and looking forward to the day. (Well, maybe not every day!)
As with so many aspects of NLP, having fun experimenting and testing out new ways to do things better than ever before is the way to keep improving. And trying out different tonality in your internal dialogue can make your life more successful, fun and effective.
Once you find the best internal sounds to support your goals, repeatedly doing them on purpose is what gets them working automatically. Practice is the key to transforming your conscious competence into unconscious competence. Playing with how you talk to yourself and finding out how to soothe and motivate yourself more effectively are two of many states that are super rewarding to optimise.

(Visual, auditory, kinesthetic, olfactory, and gustatory): These modalities are the starting points. We use them to filter our experiences, move us into action, or inaction. Think of them as the "language of the mind." When arranged in a particular sequence they bring about our desired or undesired behavior. We have either seen persons or have had the experience of naturally excelling at a task, while others struggle. If we are all composed of the same biological matter then some questions to ask could be, "How is the successful person mentally organizing his/her resources? What are they doing inside of their mind that makes them good at what they do?"
Sadly, most don't; instead, they convince themselves it's better to "sing the verse" as others do, - which is to settle. This habitual acceptance without a challenge eventually morphs into beliefs about what they think is and isn't achievable in the world... within themselves... and the one they physically inhabit. This leads to unfulfilled potential and frustrated lives. Beliefs liberate or bind the mind.
We don't have to be bound by, personal, social or cultural expectations, or accept what has been established as the norm. This is "controversial" to some, according to their definition of that word and their lived experiences... And is NLP controversial? The technology moves contra, against the accepted status -quo, and the verse, the rhythm accepted by most about what's possible. NLP does not treat persons as a statistic. Instead, it respects each person as they are - a unique stand-alone individual possessing distinct strengths and unrecognized abilities. These (strengths and unrecognized abilities) are what NLP puts to use.
Strategies to organize our internal resources, to access alternative ways and levels of thinking, so we thrive are available; yours to for the taking. NLP's methods and approaches give the user conscious control to do these. Phobias, traumas can be a thing of the past. Clarity of mind so thoughts become focused and motivating goals are achieved. Increased physical and mental performance, and so much more are all obtainable. Persons curious enough to defy the obvious have creatively applied NLP's techniques and strategies in various domains and professions: Sports, education, creative arts, personal performance business, science, counseling... If the will to change, to flow "against the rhythm of expectations" exists then there will no longer be the mind that restrains it.
Quotes from two poets and a theoretical physicist (Pindar, William Blake, David Bohm), when stitched together, sum things up:"...'do not aspire to immortal life, but exhaust the limits of the possible!'...'If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as is, infinite! For man has closed himself up, 'till he sees all things through narrow chinks of his cavern'...' The ability to perceive or think differently is more important than the knowledge gained!'...
