“Make my people happy at home and they will come to work happy. Don’t worry about company performance as that will happen automatically” said one of my CEO clients.
He very much believed in the power of people. I was hired to mobilise the workforce towards the organisation’s vision. Why me? Because I had the tools to work through any emotional or mental issue that blocked individuals from reaching their full potential.
As employees began to use NLP tools they saw amazing results. Rather dumbfounded at the speed with which results were occurring from less time spent on projects, they realized NLP was re-wiring their brain differently.
Understanding themselves at the source – their preferences, their thoughts, their feelings, they began to make choices of what stayed and what needed to be released in the library of their minds. Hurdles and road blocks that caused inferior results had done enough damage.
As the search for patterns of thinking raced ferociously in each employee, so did the rate of motivation increase. Rather surprising to everyone, employees who were considered average soared to new heights.
High performers were excited at the prospect of replicating their talent through processes that they learnt. They now understood what they were doing that gave rise to their success. They had found their identity and were fueled by passion. This inherently unlocked the wellspring of happiness that was dormant inside.
That was the connection. When people operated from a strong sense of knowing who they were, their IDENTITY – values, beliefs, behaviour patterns, they were in charge. They were at cause in their lives, making choices every step of the way.
These decisions took them towards their PURPOSE which was filled with excitement, enthusiasm and passion. They were creating something bigger than themselves. They could see the consequences on others, the positive impact that would result in their lives. It was a polar opposite to where they were in the present.
As they pursued their new journey, a deep sense of HAPPINESS emerged. Waking up with this feeling was a euphoric experience. To actually say I am happy and I just feel it. I don’t need anything to happen. At this present time I am happy. That is when an individual has arrived.
I helped many individuals arrive. It was the most blessed sense I could have ever derived. It fed the deepest reaches of my soul. I wished for everyone else to get to this point for it was BLISS. Something many people sought but never found.
In the minds of many this was a tough journey and a very scary one. I say “untrue” for I have been down that road of peaks and troughs. If anyone knows, it is me. Being aware of pitfalls before they arrive for it is always easier in hindsight “been there, done that”
By this time you would be on the path to manifesting your dream future. If you can conceive it in your mind you can achieve it!
