Shake Off and Step Up

Question: What is it that can become simplified and yet expanded at the same time? 

Answer: The second edition of my book Thoughtfully Yours is here – expanded from 66 quotes to 99 quotes, and simplified in terms of fewer number of actionable questions that follow each quote. 

With an added benefit – all this at a reduced price than the previous edition (you can thank the publisher for this benefit). Check it out now by getting your copy here: 

Thoughtfully Yours

Thoughtful Thought

“You don’t need to look serious in order to be taken seriously.”- Dr Mehernosh J Randeria


NLP Quote Corner

“After interviewing hundreds of people, I found out how people got over phobias. They all reached the point where they got fed up with being afraid.”- Richard Bandler


One Minute NLP – Association and Dissociation

Can you recall one happiest moment of your life? There are 2 ways in which you can actually experience the recall of that moment.

Scenario A – Experience this moment as if it is actually happening around you right now. See what you saw then… now, hear what you heard then… now, and feel what felt then… now. Be completely in the moment such that all you see, hear and feel is exactly happening around you right now.

Scenario B – Watch yourself experiencing that moment as if you are watching a movie – as if you are seeing yourself as a character in that movie. Notice what you (as that character) are seeing, hearing and feeling.


Now my question for you is: While recalling the happy moment, in which scenario did you actually feel the emotion of happiness more right now? – scenario A or scenario B?

For most people, the intensity of the emotion is stronger when recalled via scenario A rather than when recalled via scenario B. In NLP, Scenario A is called “association” and Scenario B is called “dissociation”

In the next episode, we shall discuss how you can use this awareness to your advantage in your life. Meanwhile, I invite you to share your thoughts – what do you think where can you use associated ways of recalling and where can you use dissociated ways of recalling?


Meta- Magic – Shake Off And Step Up

When a donkey fell into a deep pit, its owner decided to let go of it rather than expending the effort to rescue it. To save the donkey from the pain of dying out of starvation in the pit, the owner decided to bury the donkey by shoveling sand over it. With every scoop of sand, the man’s heart kept sinking. After a few minutes, with his tear-blurred eyes, the man was pleasantly astonished at what he saw – the donkey was simply shaking off the sand and using its own weight to step over it. As the sand level rose, the donkey rose with it. Finally the donkey surfaced up after stepping up on the tall pile of sand. It was his time to graze in the greens again.

My question to you is – Are you allowing yourself to get buried in the sand or are you choosing to shake off and step up?


Hook From The Book

“The hardest thing is not doing what you want – it’s knowing what you want”- The Almanack Of Naval Ravikant: A Guide to Wealth and Happiness by Eric Jorgenson


Movie Motivation

“Oh yes, the past can hurt. But you can either run from it, or learn from it.” This dialogue from The Lion King connects with the NLP principle that there is no failure, only feedback. What lessons are we learning from our past actions and inactions?
