Do you get Angry? Well that might not be the appropriate question because everyone in the world does get angry. Different people react or respond differently to situations. Now firstly remember what/who causes the anger? Anger is an emotion that we experience and it is not created because of a situation or someone telling you something. It is just a response to some event that we choose. A response or a reaction that we choose. But most of the times even before we realize we get angry and the worst part of this is that we later feel guilty and have a vacuum inside. Remember most of the times when you get angry, it’s the anger on self because you feel let down by yourself for not being in control of the situation. And then to show the anger on self you start screaming or shouting. And a little later you feel down, depressed and guilty. Why so? To draw a metaphor of this feeling, imagine that you have the anger inside you and it grows and becomes like a balloon. You just feel helpless of the situation and hence the feeling of anger grows inside you. As you keep on filling the balloon there is a threshold and at some time it burst. And the moment it bursts there is nothing left. And that’s when you feel the lowest. Can you change it? Yes instead of reacting to situation, respond to it. The So What Attitude I have been practicing this for quite sometime now and it has been working for me. I call it the So What Attitude. When something goes wrong, you feel down and dejected and then this can intensify inside you as Anger. However there is a way of handling the same mistake that has been committed. You can just say to yourself ‘So What’. This immediately makes you get disassociated with that even for that instant. Remember you are not running away from the event. You are just making the choice to respond rather than react. So when you say ‘So what’, you mellow down and then accept the mistake that has been done. You are in the right emotional state of mind, which will help you to act in the right way. The words that we use will greatly impact the state of mind.

I am sure you can start now! I cannot say stop getting Angry but Respond to Anger rather than reacting!
From Greatness to Excellence!
November 22, 2009
A growth of a person is not always exponential. Everyone at some point of time goes through a phase what I call as a “Plateau”. That’s when the growth is stopped, you perform the best but still you not rise above the expectations. This could be any area of life. It just takes a few important steps to follow to make sure that you get to the next level. Its just takes a small difference to make a huge impact. The Butterfly Effect:
Small variations of the initial condition of a dynamical system may produce large variations in the long term behavior of the system. (Source: Wikipedia) A small minor difference in your own life could make a huge impact later. This is true in every sense of it. When you want to achieve big you don’t need to make big changes in life, it just takes a small and minute change in the way you are doing things to impact the final outcome. Look at this small example in the picture to the left where at the beginning of the lines the difference is so small. Yet look at the final outcome the difference between the two lines. Its huge right? It’s the same impact that is created in life too. If we make a small difference in life, then we can achieve more. if we make the small difference of having to run 1 mile extra every day does it have a larger impact? More energy, fit body and so on. If we were to save an additional 10$ every day which is not much for a day, but in 10 years would mount to huge amounts (This is the mindset of a millionaire in fact). What does to take to make this change? Motivation? No its not motivation that is needed. Motivation is to make sure that you do beyond your perceived capabilities. But this minor change is not about motivation. Its is about
DISCIPLINE. Discipline is something that we might not like but is useful for us. That’s Excellence in Life! If you need to shed 30 pounds you need motivation. If you were to have a 6 pack abs that need Discipline. That’s moving from Greatness towards Excellence. How to identify this small change that you need
Its quite simple to identify the small change. In the area or the field that are striving for excellence, there are two zones in which operate. One is the Comfort Zone. We spend most of our time in the comfort zone. The comfort zone is where are have the highest security where we know that not many things can go wrong and also are achievable. Unfortunately we operate here with only 90% of our potential. In the comfort zone, there is no sense of uncertainty. What we need to do is just move of it and stretch. Once you move out of the comfort zone, reaching your excellence is much more easier and remaining in that Stretch zone is even more important. Easy way to stretch! A critical way to move towards excellence from greatness is by Performance Measure and having a feedback system. When you have a relative grading of your various activities, then you get into the groove of understanding what you must do and what is missing. Like I always say any Goal must be Measurable, else it can lead to a disaster. When you have a performance measure, having a Feedback system is even more important. Many people tend to forget the need for feedback mechanism. It becomes a fear for them to ask for feedback on their performance. I call it always ‘Feedback’ because when you get feedback, you can either take what you want or just ignore. Reviews, comments are not as good a feedback. Its just on your performance from someone who feels certain ways!
“If you are going to achieve excellence in big things, you develop the habit in little matters. Excellence is not an exception, it is a prevailing attitude.” - Colin Powell The Big Picture Story! Greatness to Excellence is more of the mindset. I know of people who say “sorry not now, I don’t think we can do it” and so. My role model, Dhirubhai Amabani, a business tycoon said “I am deaf to the word ‘no’”. This lead him to greatness. He never used to like people coming to him with a NO, instead he wanted solutions. If a thought arises in our mind, then we can do something to achieve it, and it just takes perseverance to do it. Once you know what it takes to achieve excellence, find some way to make it happen! That’s by stepping in to the stretch zone and doing more than what you can actually do. That will take you from greatness to excellence.
Why must you Live Happily?
September 15, 2009
Living happily is the probably the most wanted way of life and we struggle there not knowing what to do to be happy in life. We tend to be having lots of things in life and yet we are not happy. When people look at us from outside we seem to be too happy but its different in what we experience. Isn’t it true? So whats the way to be happy in life. Is happiness a specific outcome of something yes. I have known many people who say that material things cannot get happiness and they never aim to get something for them. Their goals seem to be so small and that sense of achievement is never there and hence never happy. Being Materialistic cannot make you happy but atleast it will not make you depressed. Having a good bank balance is better off than being a popper. Atleast that will not make you unhappy, if not happy. You will atleast not feel depressed about not being to have the basic things of life. So being mateialistic cannot get you happiness what else can? If you need to know the 1 single reason it has to be Purpose. Because in life there will always be challlenges in life. You will never be without challenges. I have explained about this in many of my articles before on if you do not face challenges then it means that you are leading a very mediocre life. You are not leading a great life. Many people enjoy their challenges because its PURPOSE driven. The one reason that really makes people excited about what they do is the Contribution. Contribution to some major cause that makes them feel important. Unhappiness is also because of not having a sense of contribution. In the movie, “The Rocky”, Rocky Balboa is pushed by his coach Apollo and only in the previous fight he would have lost to Clubber Lang. Rocky will not be able to give the best and will tire out soon during his practise sessions and thats when he understand the true purpose. For him the true purpose is just to prove himself that he is not a coward and can be a winner. Once he understand the
Be in that experience as long as you want to and you can. so our happiness is also an outcome of this. This differs from person to person. Once you are there in that intense experience of happiness. then we feel not so great about ourselves and we do not feel happy. Do this small exercise: Close your eyes and recall a time when you felt happy.purpose he is very happy and enjoys what he is doing. a house and so on. Happiness is an experience that you can live whenever you want. Now our needs are more. Repeat this a few more times until your anchor becomes strong. See the pictures very clearly and hear whatever you heard that made you feel very happy. So if thats ture why are we not happier than our stone age fore fathers? We all today need a basic lifestyle. So whenever you want to feel happy after you have done this exercise. But let me tell you something. This moment you can be happy thinking about the happiest moment of your life. If this basic need is not met. its having a car. For few its a big luxury car and a bunglow. Differnt people define this in differnt ways. True I do agree with that and the fact that we have a computerized world today which makes life easier and many more easiers ways of doing things with the ATM machines and mobile phones and so on. Many self development authors and speakers have been saying that today life is so comfortable and we need to be happier than our fore fathers. When you are purpose drive and give you 100% even if you do not get the results you feel satisfied and happy that you have given its best shot. Have you experienced this many times? Your conscience is clear that you have done your best. is just to fire the anchor. Happiness is most of the times just a state of mind. If you know what you want then you would always feel great about what you are doing and hence you can feel happy always. And thats when he realizes that even if he fails he will atleast not be a victim and need not have excuses. We have different needs at different times. It is just not having 3 meals a day. I want you to intensify this picture how much ever you want. or feel sad about thinking the most disturbing things in your life. How do you define happiness? This cannot be a concrete answer. (called as Achoring in NLP). hold 2 of your fingers the index and thumb together. The reason why many people do not feel happy inspite of what they have is beacuse many times they do not experience happines. that is hold your fingers and you will run the same experience and feel the same way! . The stone age man just wanted food.
And its so damn boring to be motivated always. Your motivation would be so high that you want take immediate action without knowing the consequences of the same. I can only help you to understand that you can step into motivation whenever you want. Its just that your motivation must be after you feel . For example. However this is not a great state to have when you are doing something that needs a lot of thinking. you must not just have the motivation but also be certain about what you are saying. Else you would be the laughing stock. you also must be sure of the things that you are doing.. One question commonly asked by many “how do I stay motivated always”. without any worries. but also be sure that you are doing the right thing and investing in the right company. So Certainty and Motivation go hand in hand. So motivation is a state that is needed when you need to take action on something that you feel is important. When you are formulating a strategy if your motivation levels are too high then you would not really put efforts in evaluating your strategies on whether or not they are the right ones. When you are motivated to do something. It’s just not motivation for you to invest money in the stock market. when you have fear of talking on stage (Public speaking) for example. take more action and be strong without much of fear. Its not about what happens but its how we react to it. during which time you have fear. But is it always true? Well not really because your fear is also because of uncertainty. I want to read the above 2 paragraphs again. 2009 Lets face the fact. I am but not really true. It needs a great amount of balance. A common phrase used by many is “Look that child. Even a small child has its own worries and difficulties. But in the first place why do you need motivation at all? How do you define motivation? Motivation is a state at which you can think high.. wish I too was like that”. haha.You can’t be Motivated always June 26. Well am I contradicting myself? I know yes. for them not getting a candy can cause them worries and feel sad. You just cannot feel great and motivated always. Sorry I don’t have any strategy for making you feel motivated always. I would also always add up the state of motivation with a state of CERTAINTY. Well how I wish I too could be that way.
com) You know the interesting fact about human life? We all know what is right. So just be motivated when you want to. like how specifically they achieved success in any area of their life.

As you write them down. Same way in life you need to have some trust and move on and get it working for you. . You may also drop that as a comment for this post. How are you planning to use these 5 things that you have learnt and how do you want to implement the same in your life too. I am typing this while sitting at a restaurant at Kuala Lumpur. When you buy a car. “DO IT”. This is quite annoying. What you need just a SPARK! I love that when it happens and it does not always happen. So for all those decisions that you have taken in the past.

Malaysia (I came here for a training program) having my breakfast. They go like “BUT…. Why we do not do something or why we do certain things that are not good for us. List down top 5 things that you have learnt from this website over a period of time. The only thing you need to do is to ensure that you keep your eyes open for these. Don’t we know that we must not do it? During my various Personal Coaching Sessions I tell my client. Few of them smoking. There is always a spark waiting right in front of your eyes. Before you close the browser and the website.”. Why does one have to re-invent the wheel when its already done. We pour all the rubbish in our mind and start questioning. Just do it and experience the difference in your life too. When people ask for help and when they are given a solution. But trust me you don’t need to press hard for the SPARK to happen. You can just be what you are and still get the spark. you never have an answer for it. You know one thing that I really cannot understand is this. few not able to resist the temptation and so on.

Insomnia as it is called. But before you move on I definitely want you to answer WHY? 1. More money 3. it’s the FIRE. Be more productive do more 8. Spend time reading 4. Honestly let me tell you. But then I put something simple in my mind and then it started working. if there is one formula for waking up early. Time with family 6. So wondering how to bring about the fire? . I know you would have seen many such posts that talks about rising up early in the morning. it’s not so damn difficult to wake up early in the morning. I’ll definitely share the same formula with you too. Honestly that was just sheer laziness and nothing else. 2008 I used to hate waking up early in the morning and I used to boast around that I up late in the nights so I cannot wake up in the morning. This is not a post where I talk some medical stuff to you on what to eat. what not to do and things like that.How to stop hating Morning Alarms December 9. Yeah its true.

So you must practice this for a couple of times. When we put an alarm to wake up in the morning. If I tell you there is some tasty ice cream waiting for you. then we can do anything. Why people do not wake up on time.For you to wake up in the morning you need something called a Trigger. useful actions! So waking up in the morning is all about the emotions. a wake up call.

So what you must do is to create a picture of how you will wake up in the morning. they would fall in the trap of ill health. then you run out instantly. This is a pattern as we call it in NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming). someone calling you or you just realizing and waking up all of a sudden (I know this is not right). you must associate the picture with the trigger. 1. its is because that they would have had a disaster in life. Our mind works only on emotion and no on Logic! If we are emotionally charged and motivated. It has about having the deep desire to achieve anything. meaning the doctor would have advised that if they were not doing that. you might not do. because if its good enough then you would not want to read this on how to wake up early in the morning. Once you do this. then you need to have that deep desire to achieve it. This is Purpose! And Purpose is what creates a fire inside of you. This trigger has to be associated with a sense of motivation. If you said the reason for you to wake up in the morning is one of the above (or even something else that’s important). So you must have a deep sense of purpose for you to do something. motivation. Emotions lead to actions! Useful emotions. Intensify the same picture of you waking up in the morning with full energy. Energy. So the purpose is even more higher! So you need to find the true purpose for you to wake up in the early in the morning! Isn’t exercising every day a good enough purpose?

For this however there are many ways of achieving the same especially using NLP.The fire is not something that can be developed. If I tell you that you need to run out of the room where you are sitting right now. then you might think (I know few people will run for this ). If you notice that beyond an age there are lots of people who start exercising which they restrained from doing otherwise.
Force Yourself – This is just to create a pattern in yourself again. because repeatedly over the period of time you have been labeled as a late riser. It’s the same for people who sleep late too. then this is the best for you. If you do something for atleast 2 weeks continuously then the chances of you continuing is much more higher. This in one way will not make you accept to be an early riser. create the picture of you waking up which you already know and intensify the same.are wide awake. So feed your subconscious mind with the new belief that you are an early riser. This is a driving force for you again to do it. they cannot accept themselves. 4. If you are a person who is already happy with what you are doing and you do not really want to wake up. This will make them to sit up late and they never feel sleepy or tired end of the day! For a late riser too it’s the same. only when you really want to. For you right now. Every day as you go to bed. 3. And slowly you will start getting used to the pattern of having to wake up early.

With this you are just creating a new purpose for waking up in the morning. Do this a dozen or more time so that the association between the alarm and you waking up becomes higher. do this exercise. then just forget it and be happy about what you are doing and if you badly want to wake up. give this amazing thought to your conscious and subconscious mind that you are an “EARLY RISER” and you will wake up early in the morning! Practice this and attain absolute mastery to wake up early in the morning. Be an early riser and feel energized every day! . you attach the same identity for yourself which will go against you when you want to wake up early. 2. One piece of warning is that all this will work. Tapping your Subconscious .You must have to change the identity of what you are now. Ask them to wake you every day in the morning and go for a walk along with them.
Remember Roger Bannister.(Strength Vs Stretch) August 12. If you desire you reach great heights. You do not think of the fact whether you are capable or not. You never think and say “let me score only 2 goals and stop the opponent from scoring 1 goal” and so on. A Olympic sprinter does not know whether he is going to better this record or in what time he is going to complete and he just rushes and pushes himself to the best possible extent. 2008 Firstly people wonder what can I do and what I am capable of doing and then they think about what one should achieve and one should not.‘The Rubber Band Broke’ . when the entire world were pronouncing that running 1 mile of distance in less than 4 minutes was not possible. the highest ever. This made him to understand what truly he was capable of and made others also believe that they are capable. and would risk the heart to burst. by stretching yourself far behind your expectations and your capabilities. As the athlete he does not bother about what his muscles are capable of. . If every time you think this is my strength you can never achieve. Will this lead you anywhere? In my previous post “How to Build the Muscle of Life” I had written about how should one identify the strengths and play life like a game? Do you always do that or do you seem to curtail yourself from the best? Imagine you play a game (I love this metaphor and hence use it more often). That’s a paradox right! We never know our capabilities until we test out whether something is possible or not. he was one who did not bother much about the strength and capabilities. What do you mean by capabilities? There is one concrete definition of Capability that I give “Its about what you think you are capable of”. You want the best. If you have the right mindset of winning. you don’t look at the strengths of the team or the weakness of the team and still want to beat the rest! Now can this same happen for your life too? If you wish to and want to. however strong you are you still want to defeat the audience and by the biggest margin possible. but believed more on his instincts and achieved the feat.
is rarely a function of our true capability. he never would had the thought of Can I do it? “Capability means imagination” – Napoleon Hill Let me tell you as to why I can relate myself to this so much. what we consider possible or impossible. but definitely pass on this message to your subconscious mind and then you take a step backward. Having an engineering degree cannot make you a doctor. I decided to carry out an exercise of a Live Phobia Cure. It is more likely a function of our beliefs about who we are. What is the difference between an person who has a small restaurant at the corner of the road and the giant Colonel Sanders of KFC? Is it about their strengths? Its is about Colonel Sanders willingness to stretch. You do not go by the blind belief which might not be useful for you. but it’s not so easy”. Just that you must be in complete control of the fear and not fear control you.Say you want achieve something in life and then plan with same and carry out certain action steps. Fear sometimes is useful because that’s when you work hard to achieve. When you confront fear then you stretch and achieve more than what you think are your strengths. You don’t necessarily say the same words. Recently I had a mind blowing experience.” – Anthony Robbins Your goals are not defined by your strength. I have done this before. Its your belief that will want to you take past your goals. the biggest test of my skills on NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming). This will automatically drive you negatively and never take action towards achieving Success in life. You must do more than what you can. But when you practical you have make sure that its also a stretch. “What we can or cannot do. how will I do it. While he must had the fear. . half way through you begin to analyze and think that this is what is possible for you and hence you are not capable. When you make a choice of your Goals and your targets. This in itself will drive you to greater heights. When this is not really true. you waste your energy of your brain by passing these negative commands. You must have certain amount of practicality in what you do. but in a close group after people attend my Born To Win training program and so are framed up about my skills of NLP. they must be like “Yes I can achieve it.
.’ or ‘………….Was indeed easier. and I did have a concern but never allowed that overtake me and achieve it! This is working against your strengths and stretching to achieve more. where I had to chose a person from the audience who I am meeting for the first time and then cure the Phobia. This experience of mine. you know that you can do it even lesser than X. It was a stretch. “How does it taste?” the Master asked. Guess what did I use for curing the Phobia? A Live snake! This was a great experience for me and I did achieve it. Spread beyond boundaries to achieve more. but I also believed that I could do it. But this was new and different. If you were to work with your strengths and limitations. Achieve the best in Life! Hey! In Life do you ‘…………. Only when you do and take action do you really understand what you are truly capable and what you can achieve. “Awful. as the word itself goes.” spat the apprentice. I shared not to impress you but to impress upon that anything is possible with the right strategy. it limits your Success. Only after you lift 50 kgs of weight and do some bench press do you know that you can even do 70 or even 100. 2008 I want to recall a very interesting story that I happened to read The old Master instructed the unhappy young man to put a handful of salt in a glass of water and then to drink it. The Master chuckled and then asked the young man to take another handful of salt and put it in the lake. When you know that you can run a kilometer in X minutes. When first I was deciding to do it. Your muscles begin to build more and you become stronger to take a chance of carrying more weight on your shoulder.’ pain ? July 22. its not about my strengths.
Become a lake!” I am not here talking about the Physical Pain but the mental pain and agony that we go through in our lives. and said.” As the water dripped down the young man’s chin. Physical pain is of no choice and we can over come with various pain killers. “The pain of life is pure salt. incidents? Do these create pain? But how? Before your proceed reading I want you to list down the top reasons why you experience pain. “Do you taste the salt?” asked the Master. Let me ask you this. But where is the ‘pain killer‘ for your mind? Unfortunatly pharmacies do not sell them. Environment and things not happening the way you want it to? Can you tell me how do people create pain. exactly the same.” said the young man. If that’s true how can they create pain? So where does the pain exist and where does the pain arise from? Events create pain? How can events create pain? We choose the events and most importantly the events have already happened and without control. So when you are in pain. But the amount we taste the ‘pain’ depends on the container we put it into. brother. I am not saying that your pain is nothing and it cannot impact you but there are people who change the way they look at things.The two walked in silence to the nearby lake and when the apprentice swirled his handful of salt into the lake. boss or whoever be it have an intention of creating pain for you? Incidentally these are people who really are bothered about you. People 2. we are talking about mental pain. no less. Again reiterating its not physical pain. The Master sat beside this troubled young man. no more. the feeling of pain. They might think that you are crazy and asking for a pain killer. “Now drink from the lake. took his hands. the old man said. “How does it taste?” “Good!” remarked the apprentice. Situations. Most of the times we assume that they have an intention of creating pain and hence we bear that pain and not able to talk to the concerned person. The kind of pain what we undergo every day in life is nothing compared to what many people face in their life.. Stop being a glass. the only thing you can do is to enlarge your sense of things…. “No. Events 3. Now check the reasons what you have cited fall under these broad categories 1. are there people who truly mean to hurt you and make you feel bad? Does your wife. people. father/mother. the Master asked. The amount of pain in life remains the same. . and how do they impose the pain in you? And thirdly is things don’t happen the way you want to take responsibility and change the way you are doing things rather than feeling the pain and not moving forward in life. How do you come out of the pain of life? What creates the pain? Events. Please do this as this is very important for you to move on this post I hope you are reading this after listing down the pain you are going through. That’s the point I want to drive in here.
but by emotion. Wondering how? He is a blade runner and has artificial limbs to run. was introduced to running and never looked back and started practicing and decided to participate in the Olympics too. Oscar Pistorius was amputated on both the legs when he was 11 years old and at the age of 18. They do things without their knowledge and without realizing that they are doing it. Its about how he reacted to the pain he was having. Incidentally later the Athletics federation accepted him to participate in the Olympics. the advantage of having the “MINDSET” to look at the brighter side of life and not let go the pain take over him. He participated in several races including the race for able bodied. Truly yes he had a greater advantage. They do not understand the consequence behind what they say or do and hence you feel hurt.Behind every action is a Positive Intention or no Intention: When people do an act that might hurt you (or in fact for which you choose to get hurt) most of the times there is no intention. How do we approach it and how do we make sure that we do not allow the pain to affect us? Few simple ways to achieve this 1. Looks like the federation felt that he had a greater advantage. look whether they are doing it with an intention? If you know its not true then it won’t really hurt you. The fact is that he was not even control of what happened to him. . How to come out of pain? All said and done we still face the pain for sometime because we are not driven by logic.

If you lost money in the business. Events can’t really control your feelings. “I feel so hurt” (when you say this. The moment you look at the positive intention. Words! The words you use make a difference. 4. the event will not affect you. When you feel the step out of yourself and start to think why the pain. ‘ok now stop feeling hurt’) and those disempowering words. Stop using words such as “It so painful”. We cannot control the events but can control the way we feel and respond to the event. “I want to feel important”. Look at the highest positive intention behind why a person acted in a certain way. When you feel the pain. The law of polarity says “for anything that is negative there is always something positive” and if you were to look at the that. Do that in an instant.

But you fail to look at life in a larger perspective because life has also given you so many things. But we definitely have the choice of responding the way we want to. This is the immediate cure to the pain.

Change your Habits with NLP January 23. The Neurological system is based on how we experience the world through the senses. snoozing alarm. As soon as you sit to watch TV or play games that bring down your productivity. It is quite easy to break out this pattern. This is a way to bring in some discipline too. Neuro Linguistic Programming is the software to the brain. this technique will work only when you want to throw away some pattern and not for people who just want to test it out. However majority of the patterns are not so useful patterns.Every action of ours is a pattern inside the brain. For this I strongly recommended that you take a small rubber band that will fit into you hand. If we understand these patterns and break them you start doing some other actions. Watching TV and playing games and wasting time are deep patterns inside the mind. If these patterns are directed patterns then it is easy and produces amazing results. 2008 NLP. The outcomes are because of the way we translate our experiences to create our own perceptions. We ascertain to our belief system that there are certain bad habits which we wish to get rid of. you give excuses and some lame excuses to avoid the situation. Few of these perceptions and actions tend to be not useful what we call as bad habits. what we hear. I also use it the right context sometimes. The input what goes in through what we see. refers to the language we use to sense and perceive the world. Many times the human computer is corrupted with unwanted thoughts and habits. Snap the rubber band immediately in your hand to remind yourself that you are supposed to be disciplined. For example say you want to do something useful and you spend the time not so usefully and later you being a victim. If the pain is not sufficient to stop lazing around then snap it harder so that you will feel the pain and immediately come out of it.

No Gain”. We can perceive things differently and organize and structure to produce the best possible outcomes. Interestingly we can program the communication channels that we establish within ourselves.

This is termed as Pattern Break in NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) Let me tell you. not exercising. the best computer known in the world.
Does this differ from person to person? Definitely yes and that’s why your liking does not match with everyone else. This is called the TRIGGER. you wish to stop eating chocolates (I have seen many people who wish to do this and hence the same example) and you are not able to do the same. eating junk food is because of a conditioning of the neuro system which is programmed to understand that the junk food is so tasty and make you feel good. The general feel is that these habit appear from nowhere all of a sudden. where as these habits are because of constantly conditioning ourselves towards the actions. This puts you in the compulsion to eat the same. Its only because of how we perceive it internally in the Neuro system. Understand that any habit is because of 1) the thoughts that run in the mind 2) the feeling that you sense because of the thoughts (these are called triggers) and 3) the way you program the mind to react to that feeling. We do not care about this feeling and it keeps growing and when the intensity is at its peak we realize and wish to change it forever. Remember your mental state is what drives to take action and you can control your mental state. The moment you see a chocolate (of any food or any event) you run pictures of how it would be if you were to eat it. the chocolate smelling good. Why do people not change these habits? Because many believe that they are struck with this bad habit and are of the strong belief that nothing can be done to change the habit. Probably you run pictures of you enjoying the taste. The very fact of that junk food existing would send ripples in your neuro system and acts accordingly. sounds and feelings that we have. Logic does not determine action because if that was the true then every person in the world would be perfect and can chose what they want to do and what they do not wish to do.procrastinating and many many more. Many are under the perception that the change would only be temporary and so why bother about something that is bound to come back? This again is a conditioning of the neurons and it is imperative that we change the whole system of thinking. Its emotions that drive action and these emotions are formed because of the certain pictures. The moment you create these kind of favorable representations in . it melting in your mouth and so on. Say for example. you must have to program your mind to stop craving for the same. You must have to change the thoughts and the outcome of the thoughts to avoid the action. For example.
Step 2: Intensify the new feeling: Since you have changed the perception of the trigger. you tend to be motivated to take an action immediately and hence grab the chocolate and eat it too (later feel guilty ) Changing the Habit Step 1: Change the way you perceive the Trigger: In this example. There is another way you can handle the same event. The immediate action is impulsive and you react immediately. Remember the event has already occurred which . However sometimes we let this frustration take over that hampers our activities and actions. melting inside your mouth and so on. We need to control and handle the frustration. This will give you utmost certainty. the feeling automatically changes. the chocolate is the trigger and you perceive it in a certain way. I would like you to spend sometime on what I have mentioned Frustration is. It is REACTION that causes the frustration. The moment you RESPOND to the event rather than reacting you never get frustrated. Change these representations of the trigger. So once you have stopped yourself from holding to the habit. Once you feel different intensify the same feeling. 2008 I am yet to see someone who says “I never get frustrated”. What is frustration? Frustration is the act of reacting to an event which is not desirable. If creating bad ones and easy creating new useful habits is much more easy. feel is so hard and thorny in your mouth and so on. We as humans always experience frustration in our daily lives. Importantly when you are changing the perception of the trigger. Make it feel some 100 times more so that you do not pick up the chocolate immediately. And every time you do this to yourself you stop the old bad behavior and start creating new one.your mind. you do not have time to think on that and decide how to handle the situation. Handling Frustration January 11. Smelling good. Following the 3 steps will ensure that you program the perception or the neuro pattern and hence the linguistic or the communication component. Instead of reacting. that you have new fresh and good habits too. You are no longer so compulsive to take the chocolate and eat. it must be at the peak to ensure that you break the threshold. Make the chocolate smell bad. you could RESPOND to the same event. You do not stop a habit because you see yourself holding to the habit. Step 3: Install the new identity: Feelings and beliefs are because of identity. The moment an event occurs you do not ponder on that. internalize to yourself that you have changed and create a new pattern and the older neuro pattern that’s strong in the system is broken and hence will never be created again.
to be in the thick of things for achieving your outcomes. that disturbs you. Interestingly you can consciously get angry and get angry and frustrated by reacting to an event. Moments before the outburst of emotions and frustration there is a process that is involved. This is self sabotage. And you have a Choice to respond the way you want to. blame yourself and scream at yourself you only end up feeling worse. But when you do not get the desired results you must do the devils advocate. If you start looking at events as events that cannot be avoided and has already occurred then you ponder for solutions rather than disturbing yourself by reacting. As you look at event and tell yourself “This event has already happened and is inevitable”. you would only respond and not react. You tend to loose more energy within you when you get frustrated and the “PROBLEM” though does not even exist. To start focusing on solutions rather than the so called “PROBLEM”. You run picture of the event in your mind that leads to an intensive helpless state and fires as frustration. which means that you are disassociating yourself and you would tend to look at solutions rather than feel frustrated and have the feeling of let down. If you were to curse yourself.means that you cannot do anything about the event now. Though some do suggest that giving vent to these feelings is good and acceptable I do not authenticate this theory as the ramifications are very high. You need to step out of yourself and look at things from a 3rd persons view. 3 most important points that you must have in mind to manage frustration – 1) Accept the fact that getting frustrated is a common human act. Have you ever asked “What must I do to come out of this?” . I am sure it would be questions like “Why the hell did this happen to me”.

The questions you ask yourself can intensify or deintensify your level of frustration. seems to be existing and never is solved. 2) Learn from the frustration and move forward instead of getting worked on it 3) Start creating a new belief for yourself that there are other better ways of handling situations that you are aware of You are so much involved and totally associate with the event that frustration crops up and then it just runs through you. which is an advantage for you. Recall the last time you were frustrated and look at all the questions you asked yourself. This is the easiest way to change the feeling of frustration. Yes it is very important for you to be associated. I sometimes advocate frustration and a certain amount of frustration is always good because it means that you are expecting better results from yourself.

Do you get angry with yourself?
August 9, 2007
I wonder, is it worth getting angry. When I do my trainings on NLP, I am asked how to control anger. Anger is an emotion, its a state of mind which can be controlled and which can be avoided. It is very important that you are in control of you state and that’s what will fetch the right kind of results. But how getting angry with yourself? Can you turn Anger into Motivation? yes! isn’t that wonderful. I think for the first time you are seeing someone saying get angry more. Why? Think about the reasons in the past when you have been angry with yourself. It is because that you are not happy with your performance, or the quality of the work that you did. It just means that you expected more out of yourself. Can this be a powerful driving force to achieve more? Whenever you are getting angry you are informing your Subconscious mind that you can do better and you can achieve more. This only means that, the next time you do something you expect the best out of you and you start doing the best. This is simple yet powerful. So when you get angry with yourself, its ok and you are just giving commands to your subconscious mind “Be the Best always”
Is Selling Easy?
August 9, 2007
I have been training people on Sales for quite sometime and I have lots of experienced people who say sometimes “Selling is difficult”. I don’t say so all the time.

There are no naturally born sales people, salesman are made and its a science that you can master. I have personally tested many techniques, it works for me and it can work for anyone. 3. Remember you never must sell a service or a product, you must always sell a benefit. You must always prepare before a meeting and Success is always yours. These are simple yet powerful.

Never Settle for Ordinary and Less
July 27, 2007
It is important that we always achieve high and one of the best ways to do it is increase the level of acceptance. When we start doing things we get results and over a period of time there is a possibility that
we start thinking, “This is what I am destined for”. This puts in a mental state of accepting low from yourself. This will never take you anywhere. A key to Success is by raising your own standards, you own level of acceptance. Never settle for the ordinary in life, then there is no meaning in Life. It might be a struggle but the end results is what matters the most. Successful people I have seen never settle for the less or the ordinary. Definitely, being ordinary and settling for less will give you the comfort, the surety and the security. But that will never make you grow, will never help to be big. You dream big you achieve big. Few things that you must have to do to life up to your expectations Always keep increasing your own standard. Today if you did 100 then tomorrow you must do at least 105. This will push you every day. Continuously improve on your performance. In every aspect look for improvements. Your objective might be met and still there is a huge amount of improvement always persisting Have small term, medium and a long term Goals. Stretch yourself so as to set higher goals for yourself Know the purpose. You must know as to what drives you and why and for what you need to achieve anything. Dream Big, Achieve Big
Withstand the Pain of Not achieving…
July 15, 2007
Is it very important to withstand the pain of not achieving what we want? Definitely YES!. I always wondered if there are ways in which you can avoid the Pain. But you expect something big from yourself then you must have to bear that pain. Whenever you want to achieve success and gain out of it, you need to work for it. During the process you go through several stages. You go through the learning stage. When you do something for the very first time then you need to learn the strategy to achieve the same. Alternatively you can also model other people and learn their strategies and take action to get the results when you want. Many times when you are learning something new for the first time there is a possibility of Confusion. This is a very important stage where you need to have a solid mindset that YES i am determined to learn and achieve. There are a few people who tend to say “This is not for me”, “this is for only experienced guys!” and many more. This really will pull you down, which means you need to withstand and learn and move forward. As you learn a very important step is that of “ACTION”. This is where many people fail. I train thousands of people every year, ranging from a 9 year old kid to 75 year old people. Everyone come into my training
program and learn many new strategies and techniques and then realize that yes these will work wonders in life when implemented. And majority of them really take action. Thats what really gets them success. Now when you take action there is no guarantee that you will get your desired result, in fact there is no guarantee that the strategy that you adopt will work and that’s when you get into this stage of Frustration. When Frustration creeps in there are 2 choices that you have and 2 ways in which you can treat the frustration 1. Give Up - Which is what many people do 2. Have the focus and move forward with the commitment to yourself that “YES! I am determined to achieve“. When you take massive action there is a possibility that you don’t get the result you feel so painful. But this pain is temporary. If you withstand this pain then sure you will have long terms benefits. I know people who are not willing to bear this pain and make the choice 1 and give up. Later when they see others achieving then realize “Oh God I must have done that”. Its too late and its highly pain staking and its more painful. These short temporary pains are just to test people and the one who survive it are the ones who create history for themselves.
Resources =/= Results
July 5, 2007
Many times I am asking this question. “How do you manage to produce such exceptional results in life”. Simple I take Consistent Action. Its not about the resources that we have that makes us successful and achieve things. Its the kind of action that we take that makes a huge difference. Remember Henry Ford, the founder of “Ford Motors”. What made him successful was the simple reason that he took action to achieve big. He started Ford because of the Passion he had for machines. Many people have the needed resources. You see many engineers who are so good in their area of expertise, yet the struggle to achieve. We all have the resources and we can tap them as and when we need. But if you don’t take action for what you have then the resources are useless. RESOURCES =/= RESULTS RESOURCES + ACTION = RESULTS. If you ought to get some resources then you need take action for it. You might have all the ingredients of a recipe. If you don’t use these ingredients then there is no dish that is churned out. You have the ingredients, the resources. Take ACTION to reap the results.
