2012 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 10,000 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 17 years to get that many views.

What kind of year do you feel you are expecting?

What kind of year are you expecting?
– because there is almost every chance that you will get it.

Life just occurs, one moment at a time and the signals moving through our nervous system to our brain take time to process. Whatever we are experiencing , we are experiencing inside and after the actual event AND  has been filtered through our personal relational database – our past experience.

Therefore everything in life is filtered by our interpretation and so we have already set a benchmark – it is as we say it is.

So what else would you like to say? 

In NLP we could call this reframing. You can find out more at

My Mentor, Steve Crabb often uses the example “What the thinker thinks, the prover, proves” ~ from Robert Anton Wilson’s ‘Prometheus Rising‘. Landmark Education proved to me that I can always find the evidence to prove life is how I say it is and I have noticed the tone that I take causes the quality of my experience.

So, the Financial situation that the world finds itself in is caused by conversation or the Frame in which we put it. Sure, the facts are the facts but it is feelings that cause action and action is how to reSOLVE everything.
SOLVE(nt = fluid = constantly changing structure)

You should view the world as a conspiracy run by a very closely-knit group of nearly omnipotent people, and you should think of those people as yourself and your friends ~ Robert Anton Wilson

As Anthony Robbins says: “our motions cause our emotions”
I think the whole thing is an iterative loop – our emotions cause our motions   which cause our emotions    which cause our motions ………

In NLP we use a technique of spinning feelings; imagining the feeling floating out side of our body and by using our imagination, describing it in detail, using every sense that fits.

To change a feeling we can then change the colour of the feeling, the sound of the feeling, the smell and so on. Imagine how you would feel if every time you experience fear, you could smell your favourite food, hear your favourite music …. Having reframed the feeling, we can put the new feeling back inside and experience something completely different

Reframing and spinning remind me of my personal favourite quote, which comes from Louise L Hay, in her book ‘You can heal your life’.

”… the point of power is always in the present. You are never stuck..”

How are you feeling about 2012?
Thinking about it now, while you imagine your loved ones, the last really great joke you heard and your favourite drink and your favourite place on earth … How are you feeling about 2012?

This year is going to be the most rewarding year, financially, emotionally and experientially, because I say so and it feels that way to me. The only thing that stands in the way of that is what I might say as the year progresses.

Happy New Year!
