The Meaning of LifeSimply put, the meaning of life is the meaning you ascribe to it. What you believe is what you'll see, hear and feel; therefore it makes sense to pay special attention to the beliefs you hold.
(From The Secrets of Being Happy, by Richard Bandler)
Nominalisation "...When people come in and say, "I have a fear of failure." I respond by saying, "Please put it in the top drawer and take out one of the other things."
Falling In Love "Do you want to know a good way to fall in love? Just associate with all your pleasant experiences with someone, and disassociate from all the unpleasant ones." Richard Bandler
Making The Most of Life "In life you are given a bag of moments. You don't know how many of those moments you have. My courses are about learning how to maximize those moments."
(Richard Bandler in one of NLP Life's seminars)
Change "Another approach to change is to examine the things that you believe about yourself, which you wish you didn't. These beliefs also can serve you..."
Fear "Fear itself is not a bad thing. With a lot of people, I scare them by switching their point of view in time. I think into the future to examine their own lives down the road and I have them look back at the stuff they didn't do... and I ask them how wasteful that is."
(From Conversations with Richard Bandler by Owen Fitzpatrick and Richard Bandler)
Craving "Why would you want to diminish your enjoyment of, or your pleasure and attraction to chocolate? We'll wait here for a few minutes... for you to figure out a good reason!"
(From a transcript of Richard helping someone with a CHOCOLATE craving in Magic In Action)
Success "Successful people in all fields... are all driven... I'm not talking about driven in the way Type A personalities are, but driven with curiosity. They are driven to do what they do better each time."
The Meaning of Life "Simply put, the meaning of life is the meaning you ascribe to it. What you believe is what you'll see, hear and feel; therefore it makes sense to pay special attention to the beliefs you hold."

Phobias "You are born with only two fears : fear of falling and fear of loud noise. All the rest is learned. And it's a lot of work!"
Enjoying Life "If you can't enjoy what you have, you can't enjoy more of it." Richard Bandler
