This week I am in Wales in Cardigan – a lovely little town, where when I look out of the window I can see the beautiful bay surrounded by incredible scenery. I am having a few days off from running NLP trainings, although not off from the NLP business – I am constantly learning and developing and also running other aspects of the business.
One important part of NLP training that people begin to learn on the NLP Practitioner training is called Sensory Acuity. This is where you develop your senses to pay more attention to all of the things that are happening around you and within you. For example, noticing patterns in people’s behaviour, like every time your best friend gets anxious they start to tap their finger.
The first stage of this is self awareness and paying better attention to things – with this in mind I found this poem:
Do Less – Anon
DO LESS THINKING,
and pay more attention to your heart.
DO LESS ACQUIRING,
and pay more attention to what you already have.
DO LESS COMPLAINING,
and pay more attention to giving.
DO LESS CONTROLLING,
and pay more attention to letting go.
DO LESS CRITICIZING,
and pay more attention to complementing.
DO LESS ARGUING
and pay more attention to forgiveness.
DO LESS RUNNING AROUND,
and pay more attention to stillness.
DO LESS TALKING,
and pay more attention to silence.
