Anxiety to Confidence - The Personal Development Unplugged Podcast

Anxiety to Confidence - The Personal Development Unplugged podcast. Dealing with all areas of anxiety, low self-esteem, fears to regain your confidence in all areas of your life, and being unique in using Hypnosis and NLP. Awarded one of the top 15 personal development podcasts A podcast for those wanting to let go of what holds them back through personal development but want it made simple and easy to understand and more importantly use, take action and make a difference to your life and the world you live in. If you want to change the way you feel and the way you act and react. If you have negative emotions, behaviors, that you want to lose forever and create something special in your life then I think you will like what you hear. In effect be the Real You Again! This genre of self-improvement, self-development, and mastery of your mind has, I believe, been made over complicated and secretive and here I am de-constructing the processes into their simple forms that we can all understand and easily use. There are no interviews just little ol’ me ;0) Who am I and what do I do?………Paul Clough. I now love helping making changes in people and to guide them to create the life they really want. A personal look at me: The above sentence was not always the case and being the best in the financial realms of the building industry was my aim and getting there by any means. I now know this is, and was, the worst way ~ even if I did make director of one of the largest building companies in Cambridge by the age of 30. One of the major realizations came on my first ever training in hypnosis. I found that it’s not a win-lose world and that a win-win is only a low basis to live. Being true to your beliefs and coming from a place of integrity where service is paramount. This understanding together with lots of NLP skills helped create my last partnership in the building industry grow from a turnover of £800k to £16m in less than twelve years and that can only be done with giving more than expected. Another shaping of me came from two traumatic events in my life that happened within six months of each other which created a number of major changes in me and my beliefs in what is possible. I have written about my experience and how I dealt with it but more importantly it really showed me my love for my three boys and theirs for me and resulted in the step up to become a trainer of NLP (which I never intended) and my close and exciting work with two of my sons. In supporting Joseph and help create change in people in our training’s and his wonderful life changing ‘Be your potential weekend’ and with Luke the continuing development of Cambridge Hypnotherapy and Hypnosis processes. My relationship with my third son Daniel just keeps getting better and better too. Not knowing how good I had become in change work, in the beginning, I generally studied, practiced, and saw clients then things started to happen when I started to work following just my instincts. Two clients come to mind both in effect dying from the effects of what was happening to them and the way they felt and within one and two sessions respectively not only won the will to live they changed virtually in front of my eyes and being apart of that process was and is the best feeling alive. The above are just three of the many brilliant learnings I have had in my life. The more formal bit Paul Clough I am a Trainer and Master Practitioner of NLP and Hypnosis and am passionate about assisting those who want to reach their full potential and his special skills form a unique foundation for success. I constantly seek and develop new skills and learning’s – through advanced levels of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Time Line Therapy ™, Hypnosis and to improve everyone I work with. I have an understanding of the mind/body connection which enables me to create in my clients the difference that makes the difference ~ from excellence to outstanding. For those that want qualifications: Certified Trainer and Consultant of Neuro-Linguistic Programming Certified Master Practitioner of NLP & Time Line Therapy Certified Master Hypnotist and Hypnotherapist Together with Luke and Joseph I have consistently strived and succeeded to create ways to improve people's lives and give new beliefs of what’s possible. Our potential is without limits ~ infinite in every way.

It Has To Be A Bit Scary If you want to grow

Do you want to succeed with your goals, your career, your relationships this thing called personal development? If you really want all of that you will step out of that old comfort zone or familiar zone as I call it. The thing is when you do so many things happen and the first is "Well that wasn't that scary!" in fact, you might say "That was exciting!"

So no more fea...

Just so know, even if you did, which you don't, if you did see it through your own eyes now, with all that you know now, it wouldn't be scary - but as I said we are not going there anyway, that's not...

How To Live Today

Following on from the last FMQ and based on a question we should or could ask ourselves every day.

As you look back over your day and ask "Did I live today?"

And I've had a little bit of a think -  how we can make this question create more in the next days?

I think you will like what I came up with using the natural phenomenon of generalization.

You Have To Suck First or Do You?

Can we be a master without the 10.000 hours? If we could what would that mean to you and how would your life be affected?

It's a hell of a downer this title, isn't it? Knowing you have to suck at something before you get to be good. It is a natural phenomenon and no one was good as they are now at doing something as they now are. But those 10,000 hours are a right turn-off - a Bummer with a...

#283 Do You Want to Feel Empowered? Or do you want to stay in the "It's not my problem" mode?

So what is empowerment? By definition, it's becoming stronger, more confident, and ultimately controlling one's life. I think we all want some of that!

It also means - No More Excuses, No More Reasons why we didn't or couldn't.

It means taking responsibility and ownership.

But how do we move from being at the ef...

Therapy Is Magic and Therapists Are Magicians Myth or Myth

I know when I first learned Hypnosis and NLP I did think it was like magic and to see someone transform in front of your eyes is magical and all that magic must mean there are magicians  Right?

Maybe not. Maybe there is no magic wand, no piff paff puff and you're done :O)

Let's look at the myth and see the reality and where the magic lies (no pun intended)

Feeling Unsafe? - A Question

Some are feeling unsafe in this world coming out of covid, countries at war, and other things happening.

Some feel unsafe because of what people say wanting a 'safe' place created for themselves.

So what's my question?

#279 Making Change Easy Because it is all you have to do is expect it

The what, that makes change harder than it should be is, generally, when we try to change consciously. Talking about it and thinking about it, generally, reinforces the problem/issue because if just consciously talking and thinking worked you would have changed already.

"So how is it easy then Cloughie" I hear you say.

Then I'll explain it as best I c...

I'm canceled What about you?

Should I be canceled? should I cancel myself? Should you cancel yourself too?

It's a dilemma of (stupid) proportions.

If I wasn't offended by myself way back then should I, can I really and properly be offended now because back then was back then, and now is a different now?

If we cancel the past how do we learn from it?

Just a short and different FMQ made me think and maybe you will too.

If you listen to this podcast you have to be a little weird and you are most certainly unique Oh! That's a compliment by the way.

If you take a minute to think about you, which we generally don't, is there anyone quite like you?

Does anyone have the same identical experiences you have ever had or processes them just like you? and therefore the exact same values and beliefs.

Sam Harris is an eloquent and elegant thoughtful communicator of the Making Sense podcast.

I heard this episode and it caught me and I wonder if it will you too?

For 20 years, Sarah Delashmit told people around her that she had cancer, muscular dystrophy, and other illnesses. She used a wheelchair and posted selfies from a hospital bed. She told friends and coworkers she was trapped in abusive relationships, or that she was the mother of children who had died. It was all a con. Sympathy was both her great need and her powerful weapon. But unlike most scams, she didn’t want people’s money. She was after something far more valuable.
