Sunday Morning and I am scratching around trying to find GOOD news. Personally, I have no wish to receive bad news!
Obviously, I will have to receive bad news but the news media, be it paper or electronic, seems to be full of BAD news and it makes me wonder why?
As a coach/trainer/mentor/hypnotist, I am fully aware of the power of stories. In point of fact the majority of my work is expressed in stories so that my clients can take from it what they need.
So Stories=YES. BAD stories =NO
It is simple: good stories create good energy and bad stories create bad energy.
It is usually, because someone has repeatedly told themself a BAD story that they ask me to do the work that I do.
I have heard it argued that we get the press we deserve. Clearly newspapers wouldn’t sell if the stories in them did not suit their readers. I don’t even believe that the news should be all GOOD either BUT I do believe that there should be a balance of Good and Bad. What editors choose to put in their papers should be balanced equally between Good and Bad.
The GOOD news is out there and I get to share what I can on Social networking sites.
So, help me out here Editors. I want the world full of good energy!
A Pirate walks into his favourite Inn.
He hadn’t been there in a while but the Innkeeper notices him and says:
“Haven’t seen ya in a while, where ya been? You look terrible!”
“Aye?” said the pirate, “What do you mean?”
“You’ve got a wooden leg! What happened?” said the bartender.
“Well,” said the pirate, “Our ship was in a fierce sea battle, and me leg got hit by a cannon ball, but I’m fine now”
“And what about that hook? Where’s your hand gone?” asked the bartender.
The pirate explained, “We were in another battle. I boarded a ship and got into a sword fight. Me hand was cut off. I got fitted with a hook… but I’m fine, really”
“What about that eye patch?”
“Oh,” said the pirate, “A flock of birds flew over. I looked up to see what they were and got hit by their droppings. Hit me right in the eye!”
“You’re kidding,” said the bartender. “You couldn’t lose an eye just from that”
“It was me first day with the hook”

“Every day we slaughter our finest impulses. That is why we get a heartache when we read those lines written by the hand of a master and recognize them as our own, as the tender shoots which we stifled because we lacked the faith to believe in our own powers, our own criterion of truth and beauty. Every man, when he gets quiet, when he becomes desperately honest with himself, is capable of uttering profound truths. We all derive from the same source. there is no mystery about the origin of things. We are all part of creation, all kings, all poets, all musicians; we have only to open up, only to discover what is already there.”
~ Henry Miller

I work as a Possibility Strategist, causing others to achieve.
I am a Specialist Practitioner in Neuro Hypnotic Repatterning. I am a Trainer and Master Practitioner of Neuro Linguistic Programming. I am also a Hypnotic Practitioner and TFH level 2 Kinesiologist
My personal possibility for life is Courage, Love and Vitality and when I am working well then usually Humour, Defiance and Logic are present.
My joy is being present and having fun, which is 1 reason why I run NLP House Parties.
This is actually what I DO. It is not who I AM, despite the wording used in the statement.
I have the benefit of presenting the above as me to the outside world, while I can retreat to something completely different in private and I can step away from the statement completely if I so choose, whenever I want.
This week Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth has been the head of state for 60 years! The maximum period for people to have a one job is around 40 years and considerably less nowadays but to BE the job for 60 years is something most of us will probably never experience.
And there are many more in the world that BE the work they DO. The Dalai Lama, is obviously one.
Clearly these people do have private times but who they are is so closely allied to their job that who they BE and what they DO is almost the same thing. This, I guess determines what responsibility is.
Responsibility is when I BE what I DO
So for me, if I am being responsible, I have to BE
strategic in helping others create possibility
the cause of others achieving things
practising skills that I have learnt and devised
Courageous, Loving and Vital
Humorous, Defiant and Logical
present and having fun
It’s just a thought.
Who might you be?

A police car pulls in front of his car and he instructed to stop.The Policeman exits his car, comes up to the husband’s window and asks him to get out of his car.
“Sir, do you know that you have been speeding for the last 5 minutes?”
The husband replies, imploringly: “Oh no, I really didn’t notice, officer. I am so sorry, I promise not to do that again ….”.
His wife interrupts: “That’s not true, he knew he was speeding and had no intention of slowing down!”
The police man continues: “Also, may I ask why you don’t have your seat belt on, sir?”
The man replies nervously: “Oh, I released it when I heard your siren so that I would be ready to get out of the car to …..”
Again his wife interrupts: “That’s rubbish! He hasn’t been wearing his seat belt since we left home!”
The husband becomes very angry and yells at his wife: “would you shut up, you stupid #%$!” The police man is shocked and asks the wife: “Mam, are you going to let him speak to you like that?”
The wife replies:
“Oh, don’t worry officer. He is always like that when he’s drunk!”
