Thoughtful Thought

“A healthy mind will live in a healthy body only, if a healthy thought is nourished in that mind.”- Dr Mehernosh J Randeria

“You know what? Certain people think that they will feel good if certain things happen. The trick is: You have to feel good for no reason.” Richard Bandler


One Minute NLP 

Two Ways to Reframe

Reframing, in NLP,  is about tweaking the perspective contextually. This technique develops a fresh outlook on a seemingly negative situation. In the The Ugly Duckling story, a young swan compares himself to the other ducklings and sees himself as ugly. Until he discovers his beauty as a swan. That’s the power of reframing in NLP – you change the meaning, you change the feeling and emotion associated with it.

There are two types of reframing-

1. A context reframe: In what context could this be useful?

2. A content reframe: What else could this mean?

Eg: I procrastinate a lot.

Contextual Reframe – Wow! This means you can be a wise judge in the court, who takes a good amount of time before delivering a verdict.

Content Reframe – Wow, so you mean you take time to look at a situation to consider all possible solutions before finally taking action.

Irrespective of content or context reframe, remember the basic process of reframe – simply asking yourself – What could be positive about this?

Meta-Magic – This Could be Anybody’s Story

This is a story about four people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody and Nobody. There was an important task to be done and Everybody was sure that Somebody will do it, Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it. Somebody got angry about that, because it was Everybody’s job. Everybody thought Anybody could do it, but Nobody realised that Everybody wouldn’t do it. It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done it.

My Question for you is: What is your takeaway from this story?


Hook From The Book

Movie Motivation

Today’s movie motivation dialogue has been suggested by 2 readers.

Sharings from our readers:

“This reminds me that one thing that is constant and in my control is to keep breathing. Times will change and there is always something positive waiting to come.” – Ms. Sridevi Subbaraman 

“This quote infuses me with hope, optimism, faith and strength to move on everyday. Every time I feel I’m in the pit of depression, sadness, anxiety or despair, I think of this quote. If the character in this movie can survive on an island for 4 long years holding on to this quote, then why can’t I use it to derive strength and hope on a day-to-day basis – Which is why this makes it my favourite quote, something that I will cherish and hold on to for the rest of my life.” – Mr. Sudeep Unnikrishnan

How would you relate to this powerful quote?
