In our daily race, many behave like hamsters on a wheel. Doing, doing, doing. Churning, churning, churning. Missing, missing, missing – the angels that enter our lives.
Here is a true story narrated in the first person but using fictitious names. Thanks to the self-made financially free person who shared this story.
Many years ago, I was dragging myself home, my mind filled with dozens of worries. My ventures had failed and we were down to the last dollar…literally!
I bumped into a friend, Heng, an old classmate whom I had not seen since schooldays.
I remembered him as the boy with the scaly skin (Ichthyosis Vulgaris) whom everyone shunned. It did not bother me and we became fast friends but lost touch after he moved (back then, no telephones or social media).
Heng greeted me with a wide smile and we even hugged. We were both in a rush and promised to keep in touch – but never did.
I still recall that fleeting encounter, his brimming smile and the joy in his eyes. Perhaps he was happy to see me but I think it was more to do with Heng – always a happy boy, now a happy man.
I could not fathom then but felt a great unburdening of my heart.
When I reached home, my wife remarked that I looked cheerful – something she had not seen on my face since our troubles started.
There was something about that encounter with Heng and I felt an intense drive and found ways to overcome my problems. It was tough going but I celebrated every small success. Whereas previously, I saw the cups as half empty, now I saw only half full cups.
Whenever I felt myself sinking into despair, I would recollect that pleasant encounter and snap out. It made me feel better and I never looked back. I did this repeatedly. Negative thoughts – snap! I felt more positive and kept going. In time, I managed to rebuild my business.
Years later, in a pensive moment, the thought occurred – an angel had touched me – in the form of my friend. Thanks to Heng, I made it.
The narrator refers to his friend, Heng, as an angel.
Sometimes all we need is a trigger to bring about a certain change in mind-set. What was once relegated to the realms of angels and magic is now fully explained by science.
When the narrator said, he would “snap” out of his negative thoughts and emotions, he was actually resorting to a NLP technique.
For the uninitiated, NLP or Neuro-linguistic Programming is a powerful and secret “mental technique” used by the world’s top leaders in the arts, in the professions and by police agencies, among others.
Trained practitioners of NLP can employ this technique at will. Many of the world leaders – great persuaders – use NLP techniques and so can you.
This mental technique has the ability to pull you out of despair and set you on a positive “can do” path that lead you to become a top performer in your area of endeavour.
