Last week when I was on a return flight from yet another amazing NLP training, I found myself seated with a rather curious gentleman. He was almost half my age, and a bundle of energy. Soon we started talking and he said he was a son of a diamond merchant from Surat (in Gujrat). He was amused that I was returning from attending a training.
His questions were simple – When you know it all, and you have so much of experience, why do you still spend time and money to get yourself re-trained and coached on an on-going basis. How much have you spent on your training in coaching in recent years.
And this brought to my attention that I have been asked this question time and again.
Here are my answers, and I am sure some of them would relate to you too.
What have I invested on myself, as yet?
As I look back, I have used some 10 Million Rupees on my coaching and training in past few years. Maybe more. Could I have used it for something else? Not really. I have done it only in what I truly believe in, and put it to good use.
Where have I invested it?
I have used it to get coaching & training from the finest people I have known from being mentored by people who are highly skilled in what they do, and experts who have helped me what I am today.
What have I got back?
I continue to get back fulfilment in many ways. With each rise, I see myself increasing my potential, in a much quicker way. I grow faster when I get a coach and an expert guiding me getting the best out of myself.
I also experience new systems, new developments that I use help my clients, to boost their performance and help them build happier, fulfilling lives.
What is the difference in self-learning and being coached / trained?
Self learning, which is common known method is slower, and it takes many years of discover what is really useful. It is like looking for a needle in a haystack of life.
Getting a coach, or attending a meaningful training, puts me on a guided fast track to do what I really want to do in life.
My coaches have been helped me whenever I got stuck in my own jumble of thoughts. Their unbiased ways to let me speak my mind, in a subtle guided way has always helped me get moving in record time, boosting my excellence factor.
What is coaching?
Coaching is a useful way of developing people’s skills and abilities, and of boosting performance. It can also help deal with issues and challenges before they become major problems.
A coaching session will typically take place as a conversation between the coach and the coachee (person being coached), and it focuses on helping the coachee discover answers for themselves. After all, people are much more likely to engage with solutions that they have come up with themselves, rather than those that are forced upon them!
My choice os NLP is because of its roots being in modelling excellence. NLP is a forward looking, result oriented system that gets one going. How fascinatingly it helps one distinguish between content and structure, and how structure can help one identify the blocks, and help one move forward in a desired state, towards excellence.
NLP is about the how of life!
I am sure, reading this, you must be wondering about yourself.
What are you ready to do, for achieving excellence in your own life? What have you invested on your own learning, coaching or training?
I know you are thinking to invest on yourself. And It is good….
