[Article] Where do limiting beliefs come from?

RTM stands for Reconsolidation of Traumatic Memories. This is a treatment primarily for people suffering from PTSD and it was developed some years ago by a team working in the US.

[Article] Get out of your mind

Since I’ve been spending most of my time at home of late, and as I live alone, I’ve been spending a lot of time in my own head. It’s inevitable when you’re alone, that attention tends to be internal. In the absence of someone to talk to, most of us talk to ourselves.

[Article] “So, NLP – is it a load of b******s, or what?”

Some experiences will stay with me forever. Back in 2002, I participated in a residential ‘meet the buyer’ event. It was my first time at this kind of sales opportunity and I was keen to make sure I gained a return on my investment.

[Video] Digital vs In Person

When the UK went into lockdown and we all migrated our meetings onto Zoom and Teams and various other platforms, one of the things I said was that there was perhaps one good thing that might come out of this.

[Article] What else can you do?

I was reading a post on Bob Howard-Spink’s blog in which he compares to-do lists with Leonardo Da Vinci and suggests that as well as a ‘to-do’ list, we can all benefit from having a ‘things I’ve done’ list.
