Are You Playing The Right Music?

by | May 6, 2023 | NLP Around You | 0 comments

With every newsletter, I intentionally revert to the previous issue with an outcome to connect it to the current issue in a heartwarming way. With this 7th episode, I guess I can ask you whether NLP Around You has become your coffee or the pill without looking outside of yourself? Any other additions or suggestions are always welcome.

Thoughtful Thought of the Week

“The colour of fitness is RED – Rest, Exercise and Diet” – Mehernosh Randeria

“Understanding why something happened, doesn’t help to reduce the problem” – Richard Bandler

One Minute NLP

One of the first things we wonder in any transaction is “What’s in it for me?” It often occurs in business, where a salesperson or a business partner suggests you to purchase or do something. Then the brain engages and we start to think through potential benefits or problems with the offer.

The funny thing is we often don’t inspect our own personal choices with the same microscope.

Being super clear about the Outcome is one of the Operational Principles of NLP. These help us generate rapid behavior modification.

This is much more of a “How” than a “Why” question. For example, instead of asking “Why” am I not achieving my fitness goals, ask “How” can I achieve my fitness goals.


A violin was one of the exquisite pieces up for bidding at the auction. While this violin had been extensively used by a world-famous departed violinist, the bids pouring in were abysmally low. His wife, sitting in a wheelchair, was almost on the brink of tears, because this auction was the last straw of hope for raising her three kids.

Suddenly, an old man appeared from one corner, lifted the violin, started fine-tuning it, and then played it beautifully. The audience was transfixed by the melodious performance. After a few minutes, the old man returned the violin to the centre and walked away. To the surprise of the auctioneers, the musical performance now resulted in a dramatic increase in the bids for the violin.

My Question to you is: Are you playing the right music that reflects your true worth?

Hook from the Book

“We have all got both light and dark inside us. What matters is the part we choose to act on. That’s who we really are.”

J.K.Rowling, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.

“There are no two words in the English language more harmful than ‘good job’.” – Whiplash. This dialogue reminds of the quote from Jim Collins: “Good is the enemy of Great. Few people attain great lives, in large part because it is just so easy to settle for a good life.”
