“Gratefully Blessed”, “God’s Grace”, “Living Blissfully”- WOW! so ecstatic to get your replies about two words for life. I trust that all of you must have felt a shift in perspective while finding these two words.

One Minute NLP – People Are Not Their Behaviours

Have you ever had a friend who did something you didn’t quite understand? Maybe they reacted in a way that seemed out of character, or they made a mistake that left you scratching your head. It’s important to remember that people are complex beings, and their behaviours are just the tip of the iceberg.

The NLP principle “People are not their behaviours” reminds us to embrace empathy, and to see others as multifaceted individuals rather than solely judging them based on what we see on the surface. It encourages personal growth and positive change, both in ourselves and in our relationships with others.

Judging someone because of their behaviour would be like judging a book by its cover. The book is always more than its cover. If you focus on the cover, you will miss out on the value inside it.

Once you stop associating people with their behaviour, you will begin to look at them with a clean slate, where no judgements and preconceived notions exist. It will not just enable you to be an active listener and curious learner; it will also empower the other person in imbibing desired changes in behaviour.

Remember- there is never a bad person, just a not-so-useful behaviour. (It makes the change a lot easier.)

Meta-Magic – Which Fish Are You?

Three fish lived in a pond. Their names were “Plan Ahead”, “Think Fast” and “Wait and See”. One day they overheard some men making a plan to go fishing in their pond the next day. They also mentioned about casting a net and selling fish in the market.

“Plan Ahead” said, “I am swimming down the river tonight!” and so he did.

“Think Fast” said, “I will think of a plan at the right moment.”

“Wait and See” said, “ I can’t think of anything now. Will think tomorrow.”

When the net was cast, “Plan ahead” was not in the pond. The other two fish were caught in the net.

“Think Fast” held its breath and pretended to be dead. The fisherman threw it back in the pond calling it out as a “stale fish”.

“Wait and See” ended up in the fish market.

My Question to You is: Which fish are you?
