Getting Over Yourself – The Voice Inside Your Head

here is an NLP strategy that is great to self coach to get over the voice inside your head.

Ask yourself –
“is it your voice?
Does it sound like the voice you have on the outside?
Does it perhaps sound like your mothers voice or someone you know?
What exactly does the voice say?”

now turn up the volume and make it really loud…
“is it coming from the left or the right?”
notice the feelings you are experiencing now.

now, move the voice away from you and off into the distance and turn the sound right down.

Ask yourself… “did I ever hear somebody talk that I totally disbelieved or mistrusted or lied?”

As you listen to the voice – slowly change the tone of the voice that voice of someone you absolutely mistrust and do not believe.
Now move the voice around to the back of your head and push it back so it is further and further behind you.

Now, repeat hearing that old voice inside your head and change the tone to the untrustworthy voice, move it behind your head and push the voice further and further away..

repeat this process quickly three more times.

Now imagine ducks flying overhead in spotted boxer shorts, and take a deep breath and exhale.

recall that old voice you no longer trust and notice the change, now…

Staying At Cause

As a coach, you are encouraged to support your clients to live at cause rather than at effect. Living at cause, as we know, is about choosing to be 100% responsible for all the results you are getting in life.. the good and the not so good.
So what does that mean for your coaching business?
When something has not worked for you, it is important to model staying at cause. Being 100% responsible for your results means you are not even allowed to blame yourself, or excuse yourself for the results you are getting!!
NLP presupposition of Cause Vs Effect is a must to apply to yourself as a coach, to your coaching business, and then hold your clients accountable to as well.
Most of the clients that come to us are living at effect.
When you can truly master living at cause, then you can truly model the excellence your clients have come to learn and be. It is because of this modelling that gives you the element of expertise and makes more clients draw toward you. This means your client base will increase as a result of you staying at cause. You will also learn some awesome skills of strength and resilience along the way which are also skills your client desires now and for their lifetime.

Physiology and Psychology of Excellence

One of the coaching NLP presuppositions I LOVE is to have a physiology and psychology of excellence. To be a great coach and have an amazing coaching business, it is paramount to model excellence, and by acting “as if” allows our unconscious mind to create that reality for us.
The amazing power of our unconscious mind! it cannot tell the difference between real and acting.. it responds to either behaviour just as readily.
When we use our unconscious mind’s strengths to our advantage, we can truly master modelling and being ‘who we choose to be to do what we must do’ to have an awesome coaching business.
Physiology of excellence- think of the mountain pose in yoga or trainers stance in workshop delivery. Shoulders back and down, arms by side, fingers long and relaxed, feet slightly apart (shoulder width). Looking up above eye level gives us more positive thoughts than looking down toward the ground.
Psychology of excellence – our thoughts. Positive thoughts are paramount to achieving excellence. More on this next time 🙂
