Hi Friends

When I was a little boy, I have always heard people around me talking about setting New Year Resolution. The interesting phenomenon is that a year after setting New Year Resolution, somehow, things did not change much. Why is that so? Most of the people that I know will shove the New Year Resolution aside after setting and totally forgot about it. So some of the key things you need to DO to make sure that things get DONE is to TAKE MASSIVE ACTION  once your goals are set.

So what are some of the AMAZING THINGS that you can do for yourself this year? Check out this list:

1.       Review your Achievements for the past year

As you look back last year, list down the top 3 things that you have done well and then reward yourself. Also list down the top 3 things that you felt it could have been better. Ask yourself are there any things that you have learnt where it can make you a better person. In NLP, if you are able to gather some positive learning from any negative experiences that you have, in fact, you are applying a tool in NLP called Reframing.

2.       Fulfill at least one of your Dreams

If there is 1 dream that can be achieved this year, what will they be? Put in your best effort this year and achieve them. There were a couple of my dreams that were fulfilled last year:

(i)                  Brought my family to Hokkaido & Disneyland

(ii)                Met Sir Richard Branson, Founder of Virgin Group with a Networth of US$46 Billion (see picture below)

(iii)              Met Warren Buffett, Richest Investor on Forbes List with a Networth of US$58.5 Billion

(iv)              Met Zhang Zuo Lei, Billionaire Businessman from China

(iv)              Build strong working relationship with Richard Tan, CEO of Success Resources Pte Ltd, the largest event organizer in the world

(iv)              Meeting Professor Bruce Greenwald in Columbia University, etc

Find those that are FUN to do!

3.       Tell your love ones “I love you”

If there are 3 people that you are absolutely grateful for who have made a difference in your life, who will these people be? Assuming that they are still around and you have always wanted to tell them something important, tell them!  I remembered I have a NLP Graduate who loved her mum so much but she has always procrastinated to tell her how much she loved her mum. Eventually she took up the courage to do it and she felt phenomenal! Her article is available here:

4.       Exercise

“Take care of your body. It’s the only you have to live” ~ Jim Rohn. I came across this quote when I visited an exhibition called Body World in New York. It really gave me a fresh perspective of life. Most of the people finds exercising tiring and tough to do. I share similar experiences. So what I did was simply to do something that I like – Brisk Walk with an pipe-in music from iPhone & weight training in front of the TV. Recently, I have shifted to a place where it’s a few minutes walk from West Coast Park. It’s really Beautiful during the day and night. That further motivates me to exercise. You may like to play basketball, golf or any sports that give a great workout. Just DO it!

5.       Read

Recently I have just shifted my house and I realized that I really got of tons of books that I have bought but not read yet. If you have any books that you have but not read them, read one this year. If you are very busy in your life and find completing reading a book a hassle, read articles instead. Personally, I love to read posting by Sir Richard Branson in his personal Blog as well as summarised biographies at

6.       Remove negative people in your life

One of my favourite quotes was “Surround yourself with people that will lift you higher” by Oprah Winfrey. I have always love hanging out with positive people and people who will support your dreams and goals in my life. They bring energy, encouragement, support and warmth into my life. If you have any people in your life that is taking most of the energy out of you, vanish them from your universe or you vanish yourself from their universe. You will be happier.

7.       Have FUN and DO something crazy!

Life is short! If you have always wanted to do something crazy and outrageous (assuming that it’s legal and ethical), DO it! A couple weeks ago, my company launched our 1st investment book called “Invest Lah!” and I dressed myself up as a Cash Cow Mascot. We had SO MUCH FUN in our launch. Watch video below. So is there something that you have always wanted to do but did not have a chance, Screw it Just Do it! You may also learn HOW TO INVEST in an EXTREMELY FUN way by clicking Mind Kinesis Value Investing Academy.

8.       Help someone

Since my encounter with Kidney Cancer, it has changed the way how I look at life. I have been organising small charity events or participating in such events since 2010. The most memorable one is when I brought the patients from Hospice Care Association for a day trip at Gardens by the Bay and I almost cried at the end of the event. It was a meaningful one. For this year, I will be organising another one. If you decide to help someone but do not have time, you don’t have to organise anything. Just volunteer yourself for the day, or if you see any people who are handicapped in some ways and are selling tissue paper, buy a few packs from them and chat with them. You will be surprise what you can learn from them about life.

9.       Show Gratitude to your friends and/or colleagues

I remembered years ago when I was working in a public listed company, I have to managed a few hundred staffs. It was pretty challenging to motivate them. Having said that, I came out with an idea one day – give candies to my female staffs. As my staffs are predominantly male and are in large numbers, I have decided to give thanks starting from a small group which are the female staffs. On the eve of Valentine’s Day, I personally packed about 30 packs for the female staffs. When they came to work on that day, my staff gave every single lady staff the packed candy and said “Happy Valentine’s Day!”. Guessed what happened? One lady staff entered my office and said that for the past 25 years, I am the only manager that has showed appreciation for the years of effort of my staff. After she spoke to me, she went out and shared to her colleagues how happy she was.

Ask yourself this – Do you have any friends or colleagues that have helped you previously and you have no chance to thank them? Give them a surprise. It can be a handwritten note, a small and cute gift, etc.


10.   Look at the Stars, the Sky, the Trees, the Sea

Visit any places of nature and be part of it. We spent so much time working, working and working and we should give ourselves a break and be with nature. Go to the nearest beach and enjoy the sun, sand and the sea. Lie down somewhere and enjoy the stars or the sky or the clouds. Admire how beautiful the nature is, paying attention to the sound of nature and remember how it feels!

NLP SINGAPORE – How to Become More Effective in Your Coaching Consulting and Training Business

How to Become More Effective in Your Coaching Consulting and Training Business

By Graham Constantine

5 Practical Skills To Get More Influential

Well, of all the places to discover something new, something that works, sitting in the entrance to the Rope Tackle building in Shoreham about to make a sales visit to a big potential new Customer. Well, “he’s probably not really that big!”, I say to myself, but his reputation is that he learns by doing and has no time for “personal development stuff”. His favourite sayings are “I want to be effective”, and “I learn by doing”. I feel that my stomach is a little tense and my palms are a little hot and moist. I wonder, what can I do to influence him to become a customer…..

Well, maybe these 5 practical skills may help :

Skill 1.Be Likeable and Helpful To People That You Meet To Earn The Right To Influence Them.

Skill 2.Use The Language And Behaviour Of Influence To Create An Agreement Frame !

Skill 3.Make A Great Sales Presentation.

Skill 4.Build a pathway to Yes and Lead Your Prospects to make really great decisions.

Skill 5.Frame Objections as Resources and Negotiate to close more Win-Win Agreements.

So, as I’m waiting in the reception area I’m spinning the feeling of being in a wanton buying state from the top of my head to the tip of my toes. Sounds a bit wierd I know, but it works, I begin to relax and prepare for our discussion.

Step 1 : Be Likable and Helpful !

“Few people would be surprised to learn that, as a rule, we most prefer to say yes to the requests of someone we know and like.” Robert B Cialdini, Ph.D.

We sit down on a low leather sofa and I smile, shake hands and say “So, I’m curious, how’s business ?”

He tells me “Business is going really well. We’re really busy.”

As our conversation progresses, nod my head gently and gesture to demonstrate that I understand what he’s saying. Turns out that he’s had a bad experience with Steve, at least I think that’s his name, someone else who came in to talk to him about NLP…..

“Let’s get straight to the point. Does NLP work?” he asks “the other bloke told me I think

in pictures and I thought about it over the weekend and I actually think in words.” He says.

Step 2 : Create an Agreement Frame.

“The thing that makes NLP work go so quickly is that we make very practical decisions about what order we do things in…..”Gather information!…Evolve system…Solidify change”” Richard Bandler and John Grinder

So I begin from a point of agreement and continue to ask questions to find out what we agree on and playback all the things that we do agree on.

“Do you want to know how NLP works?”

“Yes” he replies.

“Well, I’m sure that you do think……

and when you think of the seafront at Shoreham, how do you think?” I say

“in pictures”, he responds

and when you think of writing a proposal how do you think?

“in words……”

and sometimes you think in feelings, sometimes you think in sounds ….. depends on what you’re doing…….

and I’m curious, have thought what you can do with NLP …..”

Step 3 : Make A Great Sales Presentation.

When they think people tend to use their senses. So when you do your sales presentation, you can use a mixture of seeing, hearing and feeling words to match the way that your prospect thinks.

“because, we always ask the participants in our workshops, why do you want to learn to use NLP to influence people ….. Here are some of the answers that we get:

Improve Negotiation Skills – Hit More Objectives

Make Initial Connection – Rapid Rapport

Use Language To Encourage Response

Match Customer’s State and Lead to Where You Want To Go

Close and Say Yes

Yes By Face to Face, Email and Phone”

“When you do the right thing for the right reason you will enjoy influencing and persuading more, take the pressure off and you will be more successful…..

so, can you see yourself using some of these skills, hear the different responses that you get, how you vary your voice tone and tempo, and influence more people….. and get the response that you want…..”

Step 4 : Lead Your Prospects To Make Really Great Decisions.

Your prospect has made decisions before, so you can help him or her to make another great decision.

“easily, so are you interested to……learn more……

as I’m sure that you’ve made good decisions before…….

so what more can I tell you and show you……..”

Step 5 : Negotiate To Close More Win-Win Agreements !

As you began from a point of agreement the amount of conflict will be very low, so you will reduce the amount of negotiating that you need to do.

“… can you see yourself on an NLP workshop and hear the sound of laughter…..”

“Yes”. He said. Let’s go……

You too can use these five steps to influence more people.

What Can Nlp Coaching Do for Me?

Author: Bill Thomason

NLP Success Coaching

Your NLP Success Coach doesn’t just give you advice. Expect to be fully heard and learn specific skills you need to make the changes you want to succeed now, don’t you?

Your NLP Coach believes you have all the resources necessary to achieve any outcome in life, and you may simply have those resources organized in a way you have not been getting what you want.

The Most Successful People You Know Have Coaches

NLP Success Coaching incorporates the same technology for profound personal change that sky-rocked best-selling author and motivational guru, Anthony Robbins and others to massive success. Together, personal coaching (life coaching) and business coaching (executive coaching) has become a significant and respectable business over the last few years.

You Can Make the Changes

Other coaches may give you advice, but your NLP Success Coach can help you make the specific changes necessary to achieve excellence. Like a sports coach, your NLP Success Coach will push you out of your comfort zone and support you in your decision to play a game big enough to inspire you to achieve more than you ever thought possible.

How big is the game you are playing?

The quality of your life is directly impacted by the quality of your communication. Your relationships, career, finances, and personal happiness, all depend on your ability to communicate effectively with yourself and others. In the domain of work, do you sometimes think you have communicated effectively, only to find that someone got the wrong message? Do you worry that you are so busy ‘putting out fires’ that you are not effectively moving your business and your career forward? Do you worry about saying and doing the right things to build and maintain relationships with those in authority positions? You are probably good at what you do, but there are also things you cannot see or predict from your current perspective.

A characteristic of highly successful people is that they imagine a desired future and then communicate that vision in a way that enrolls, includes, and empowers other people. Your coach will help you access your own states of excellence so that you easily exercise the energy, intention, confidence, and assertiveness necessary for extraordinary achievement.

What Can NLP Coaching Do For You?

Even Coaches have NLP Coaches! Bill Thomason has helped thousands, like you, to achieve your most highly valued outcomes of personal growth, business success, relationship, spirituality, motivation, team building, career advancement, and more. Bill will gently nudge you toward achieving more than you ever thought possible. Bill can help you decide what it is that you do want and will then work with you to identify and eliminate the barriers that have stopped you in the past from achieving everything you want. And you do want to live your life fully now, don’t you?

What stops you…?

…from achieving what you say you want in life?

Bill says one of his mentors growing up was his Uncle, Darrell Royal. According to Bill, who played football at the University of Texas in the early 1970’s, his Uncle was way ahead of his time as a college football coach. Long before the Inner Game of Tennis and Inner Game of Golf books by Timothy Galwey in the late 1970’s, Bill says he observed that his Uncle treated football players with great respect. After all, they were the best of the best. Derrell Royal didn’t have to yell at or berate his players when they didn’t perform at their capability level. He would ask pointed questions that allowed the player to draw learning from deep inside themselves and from their own unique experience of life.

Bill believes that this Uncle’s understanding of an athlete’s innate ability to excel, is what took the Texas Longhorns to National Championship status. Darrell Royal was named ‘Coach of the Decade,’ for the time period between 1965 and 1975, and was called, ‘the winningest coach’ of his time.

Areas of focus for your NLP Success Coaching session:

– Get a promotion

– Deal with conflict

– Handle loss of job

– Produce results faster

– Influence with integrity

– Acknowledging Successes

– Become an effective leader

– Be a full player on your team

– Change your personal history

– “Wire in” states of excellence

– Set and achieve goals/outcomes

– Deal with upsets/negative feelings

– Attract and maintain a relationship

– Recognize quantum shifts in yourself – Discover Core Values and eliminat values binds

– Design your life vs. being a victim of circumstances

What to Expect?

Expect to experience being fully heard and to learn real-life skills that can help you get out of stuck states, develop effective strategies, and take action toward your achieving your goals. You are always a partner in your own process toward becoming everything you always wanted to be in your life.

Bill believes you have all the resources you need to get anything you want in life. You just may have had them organized in a way that was not successful.

What will happen?

You will:

– Determine what it is you want

– Explore how your life will be different when you have it

– Interrupt you old programming

– Install patterns of personal excellence

Your coaching relationship starts after a brief conversation during which we both decide to work together. Your NLP Coaching Agreement is typically for a two month minimum time period with at least three (3) sessions per month. In each new session we will discuss what happened in the one before, what has transpired between sessions, and outcomes of homework assignments. Homework will be assigned that can be accomplished in simple conversations with people or writing/journaling exercises. Any breakdowns will be “mined” for what can be learned.

Your NLP Success Coach becomes a mentor, a consultant, a counselor, and committed partner in helping you to achieve your goals for personal growth, business success, relationships, spirituality, motivation, or whatever it is that you really want in life. The first step is to determine what it is you want. The second step is to determine the “ecology” of achieving what you say you want.

After that, the coaching schedule will take you through a number of steps to assure that you are well on the path to your desired outcome. You may need to reassess parts of your life, redefine success, set new goals, change old unresourceful habits, and build self-esteem and confidence in yourself.

Flexibility is of primary concern. You will always have permission to express yourself in a safe environment. As things come up, new directions can be evaluated. Your NLP Success Coach will ask you to do more than you thought you could do. You are always a partner in your own process toward becoming everything you always wanted. NLP Success Coaching is about YOU
