In this week’s blog I cover one of the most powerful psychology shifts you can make in leadership and personal development; a shift in motivation from fear formed in your past, toward a vision you wish to create for your future. There are however some opposing forces that need to first be understood.

Philosophy and psychology are full of ideas of what constitutes a pivotal shift in life. However, I can summarise many of these various approaches into the following sentence: ‘Acceptance that the only real control you have in life is how you choose to respond to events.’

However, from an NLP perspective, our neurology can sometimes forget this important principle, especially during times of stress. Therefore, a complimentary saying from Nietzsche is, When we are tired, we are attacked by ideas we conquered long ago.’

Therefore, an important principle in personal leadership is that you both hold a long-term vision and also need short-term strategies to manage your emotions. 

Our Advanced Coaching course contains techniques to cover both of these important requirements and the clip comes from part of the e-learning section of this blended zoom course which runs from 2nd to 4th December.
