We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.
W.L. Bateman expressed it as…
If you keep on doing what you have always done, you will always get what you have always got.
I first came across these quotations while I was studying NLP nearly 10 years ago. I was surprised that I hadn’t stumbled across them before. but now in hindsight, it probably wasn’t a surprise at all. The only reading I ever did outside of work was music magazines and the odd newspaper. My leisure time was usually spent socializing, playing sport (obviously not a bad thing) or watching rubbish TV
At the time, I was working in corporate world. I used to spend a lot of time driving to meet clients all over the UK and would often get stuck in traffic. My perception of driving was that it was a bit of a drag. I certainly didn’t help myself by listening to the same talk radio station feeding me endless negative messages
I had to stop what I was always doing…
And ask myself what would be a better use of my time spent in the car. It was then that I discovered self-help CDs, the first one’s being the Tony Robbins program Get The Edge quickly followed by The Achiever’s Edge regular audio program from Peter Thomson. Listening to them helped to eat up the miles and I actually started to look forward to those long journeys. With the advent of podcasts and apps such as audible, the availability of downloadable products is almost endless, and the cost of programs have, in general, reduced substantially.
The important action to take is to take action…
Alfred Edward Perlman once wrote:
After you’ve done a thing the same way for two years, look it over carefully. After five years, look at it with suspicion. And after ten years, throw it away and start all over.
What have you been doing the same way for two, five or ten years? What do you need to do differently to move forward in life?
Maybe it is time to stop playing the victim card and choose to do something about your current position
Or it could be…
Time to forgive yourself, which is the greatest forgiveness of all.
Investing in self help information products is an investment in yourself, provided that you learn and take action. But surely you are worth the investment, aren’t you?

We were nearly at the end of our session when Elizabeth’s expression suddenly changed from bemusement to a look of realisation.
“Ah, I get it now” said my client, “this whole financial healing thing is really about self worth and not net worth. Our financial situation is a reflection of how we feel about ourselves. And I guess this reflection shows up in other areas such as health relationships and in our careers”
That pretty much nailed it and with this in mind, the intention of my blog post is to cover a multitude of areas, not just financial issues. The techniques I primarily use, EFT, Matrix Reimprinting and NLP help with any issues across the board. In fact the creator EFT, Gary Craig encourages us to “try it on everything”
What Is Stress?
Different people define stress in different ways. I define stress as the way we respond to our environment and our body’s reaction to that environment.
The reason you need to work on beliefs is because it’s your beliefs that run everything. Your beliefs form you and you will run your life based upon your beliefs.
To change people’s lives from a financial point of view what you need to do is to work at two levels. This is to ensure that they have control over their finances rather than have their finances controlling their lives. Read More
If I can be a bit immodest for a moment, I think the reason why I am proficient is I think I seem to have the ability to ask the right questions. And that in turn comes from being a good listener. Read More
You have to get your mindset correct or you will never attract or retain money! Even if you’re given money like a lottery winner, you won’t retain it.
Unless you’ve got the right mindset, it’s like with anything, with professional sports people, for example. If you’re a golfer, which I’m not, I’m reliably informed that 90% of that is in your head, and I believe it’s the same with your relationship with money.
