Sandra is a highly successful entrepreneur that is doing a good job. The frustration for Sandra is that she knows that she could be exceptional, but something has her stuck.
No matter how much she wants it or how hard she works she remains at the same level of performance.
When she came in to see me, I asked her what she wants to achieve in her business and in her life. She told me, “I want to accomplish more and be less anxious all the time.” As Sandra was telling me this she talked with passion and made powerful gestures with her left hand to make her points. When I asked her what seems to get in the way she switched hands and told me how she feels stuck no matter what she does.
I noticed was that when she talks about achieving her potential she uses has a strong voice and uses strong gestures with her left hand. Conversely, when she told me about not achieving greatness her voice becomes weaker and she used weaker gestures with her right hand.
As soon as I saw this duality in voice and gesture behavior I knew she that two parts of her psyche were in conflict. One part is driving her towards success and the other is putting on the brakes. There is a powerful tool from the world of Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP) that resolves this type of inner conflict effectively.
In about 60 minutes, I was able to resolve this internal conflict that had her stymied. Later that day, I got a phone call from Sandra. She said, “The biggest change that I have noticed is that my level of stress in way down. And the tension I usually hold in my shoulders has been gone all day.”
That is what I love about NLP. It helps people get the change they want extremely quickly!
