A term used quite freely in our vocabulary. “It’s all about state of mind”, “you have to put your mind to it”. Board breaking is something which I hear about frequently but have never had a chance to do! Before doing the the fire walk at Anthony Robbins a few years ago I’d never thought about going beyond my rational limits. How I was wrong!
A great session was had our last NLP Group in Brighton, our special guest was Rod Morgan who has a background in Tennis Coaching and International NLP Trainer and Life Coach. I always value the opportunity to attend our NLP group which has a real community feel and friendly atmosphere, each month I get chatting to some very interesting people.
In this particular session, it was all about breaking through our boundaries. We did a session on stacking anchors – this is a name given to creating and anchoring a variety of positive states that can be triggered by some form of action i.e pushing finger and thumb together. Paul McKenna uses this particular technique a lot in his books to trigger feelings of motivation, confidence, energy etc , at the times you need to tap into it. We did the stacking anchor technique in the Circle of Excellence – an imaginary circle in which we created positive state and repeated several times in order to be able to fire them off at any point when we feel the need during our daily life. What an excellent outcome and great practice session for all who attended.
We ended the night by having the opportunity to break a board with our bare hands! I remember the revving up all those years ago at Anthony Robbins, the adrenaline pumping whilst eyeing up the fiery embers of the burning coals but we got about 3 hours of this, how was I going to do this within 5 seconds? The pressure was building as everyone seemed to be doing a great job of blasting their hand through the wood! However the amusing part was seeing the expressions on people’s faces as they went in for the kill. Pretty priceless really! And that was me included, and what a rush! A piece of broken wood sits proudly on my kitchen table until I decide what to do with it….a reminder that it’s all about state of mind and anything really is possible when you “put your mind to it”.
