Where is this path taking me now then? I contemplate this question sitting in a hotel room in Hampshire in the middle of an intensive NLP Practitioner course with a head about to burst from all the fabulous information pumped into it thus far.
This particular path has me exploring the field of NLP following many years of reading books about the mind and the subconscious, so it was more a natural progression from a home grown curiosity really…plus a desire to put this study into practice to help others.
Now I have a desire to write something useful and inspiring to share with you. Couldn’t come up with anything inspiring, although did start thinking about the paths we choose during our lifetime and what leads us to make those choices that take us on these various paths in the first place.
The synchronicity that leads from a random discussion with a stranger about Indigo Children, a trip to Fort Lauderdale, to a course in Hampshire…this course. This is where the first introduction to Milton Erickson took place, who I now admire immensely, why you ask? Well because….Anyway, I digress, walls have hears you know…lol!
Let’s go back down the path, way back. About 8 months to be precise. Five months before ‘random discussion’ was the result of a random twitter post, which led to a random email with a question about what to do when you don’t know what to do, which led to meeting a dozen new friends, which led to a retreat in Florida, which let to a random conversation, which led to some information, which led to another conversation and finally the random conversation and of course the course!
The most inspiring quote I can pass on from this course are; ‘people are doing the best that they can with the resources they’ve got’ which is a cool way of accepting some of the abysmal behaviours we encounter or even display ourselves.
What choices have you made lately that have taken you on a random path of exploration and discovery?
