Trying to leave this little old world and the people I meet in a better place then when I first met them. Who am I and what do I do?………Paul Clough. I now love helping making changes in people and guiding them to create the life they really want. A personal look at me: The above sentence was not always the case and being the best in the financial realms of the building industry was my aim and getting there by any means. I now know this is, and was, the worst way ~ even if I did make director of one of the largest building companies in Cambridge by the age of 30. One of the major realisations came on my first ever training in hypnosis. I found that it’s not a win lose world and that a win win is only a low basis to live. Being true to your beliefs and coming from a place of integrity where service is paramount. This understanding together with lots of NLP skills helped create my last partnership in the building industry grow from a turnover of £800k to £16m in less than twelve years and that can only be done with giving more than expected. Another shaping of me came from two traumatic events in my life that happened within six months of each other which created a number of major changes in me and by beliefs in what is possible. I have written about my experience and how I dealt with it but more importantly it really showed me my love for my three boys and theirs for me and resulted in the step up to become a trainer of NLP (which I never intended) and my close and exciting work with two of my sons. In supporting Joseph and help create change in people in our training’s and his wonderful life changing ‘Be your potential weekend’ and with Luke the continuing development of Cambridge Hypnotherapy and Hypnosis processes. My relationship with my third son Daniel just keeps getting better and better too. Not knowing how good I had become in change work in the beginning I generally studied, practiced and saw clients then things started to happen when I started to work following just my instincts. T

FMQ 267 Are you pointing in the right direction

9/10/2019
More
Are you pointing in the right direction A 5 minute podcast that lasts a little longer :O) By striving to get to where we want to be as fast as we can often leads to bad technique, cheating and in the end not being as good as you aimed for. We see this in the gym with some people lifting too heavy weights and applying the wrong technique to lift them and in effect cheating with result of lack of gains - now we call see that and know that's silly yet if you're like me we can put our hands up...

FMQ 266 The possibility of all things

9/6/2019
More
The possibility of all things Everything is possible when you free yourself This podcast is and was inspired by the late Wayne Dyer from his book 'You will see it when you believe it' - What an awesome and true title. And in that book this sentence really resonated within me Place in your imagination the possibility of all things When you do this anything and everything is possible. This is proved by my hero Walt Disney, he had to have done this to create so much that infected so many...

You and I - a personal sharing This just happened to me and I just had to share it with you. An AhHa! moment through my journaling and and email - Oh that's so vague Cloughie and it will get clearer or become clear if you decide to come with me. As I mused with my journal things began to come to me about relating with you, my relationship with you and then I started to go deeper questioning how I relate to ME and my unconscious mind. What came to mind as I thought and wrote in my journal...

FMQ 265 Stop - it's time to grow

8/30/2019
More
Stop - it's time to grow There's so many metaphors using gardening to have you grow, plant your seeds and nurture etc. etc. and this isn't one of them. But....... We can learn from nature and how things evolve and as we're growing anyway maybe we should have a little look around and see how we can incorporate the best of nature into our planned growth. ---- You do plan your growth don't you??? Maybe we should STOP and consider and decide our goals, plans, dreams and desires - our future...

FMQ 264 No more pity

8/27/2019
More
No more pity Will this be a voyage into controversy? What spurred this 5 minute quickie was listening to a well meaning person on UK national radio saying how sorry they felt for obese people because of a national advertisement and following this with "It's not like doing smoking - you don't do obese" You and I, people, anyone, everyone, do not need pity, however well intended, they need compassion and help - to take responsibility to make changes. We need to look at the cause not the...

8/20/2019

Performance anxiety - we all experience it - Part 1 We all perform - Yes we do! Some perform in front of an audience, before examiners, sitting exams, in sports, in meetings, with our partner or friends, in fact we all perform all the time at being us. That's why when Wills, a musician and music teacher, asked for this topic to be discussed I felt it was so important to give it my best and to that end it became a two part podcast with maybe more to follow. When I say we all preform at...

FMQ 263 I'm a hypocrite and not sorry

8/16/2019
More
I'm a hypocrite and not sorry It's okay to change your mind and beliefs In this episode I want to ask you to become more curious of what you hear and see and our own bias. I used to think changing your mind was hypocritical and that was bad - once you've made your mind up on a thing you have to stick with it! Is or was that a great belief to have? Especially in this ever changing world that seems to be uncovering new information and new ways todo things at an amazing speed. You only...

It's good to know that what you've been doing is more than ok A world champion that can cram 2 months of learning into one day! and my imposter syndrome all wrapped up in one episode! (too many exclamations there!) There are times I guess when we all question ourselves "am I doing this right?" And for me I also add "I know what I do works for me and it should work for anyone else - You and my clients - but will it?" Well you may well feel the way I did when listening what a world...

Accept your excuses and find your competition We all want to improve, don't we? What do you want to improve in? So when I started this I had in mind a five minute quickie podcast and found that I just ran on with more and ended diving a little deeper. Diving into you personal best's and then finding ways to beat them. We going to start with the promise of finding people or companies, if it's business, that are better than you - Your competition. Competition to inspire us and teach us how...

All things Hypnosis A review of free hypnosis tracks and they're downloadable I didn't realise just what a breadth was covered until I was reviewing the hypnosis tracks that accompany the Personal Development Unplugged podcast. I'd forgotten what we had covered and wanted to refresh myself and had the thought 'I bet others, newly coming to listen don't know what's available' So here is an overview of what's been created for you to date and a little description that may help you to find...

FMQ 260 From a voice to awesomeness

8/2/2019
More
From a voice to awesomeness I was reminded of a concept that I first encountered in my first NLP Practitioner training, again in my Trainers training and yet again in a Tim Ferriss podcast - you might recall FMQ 5 'The jar of awesomeness'. This time it was by a guy called Marcus Buckingham and how children in New Zealand had taken this concept and called it a 'Voice box' or more specifically My Voice box. The effect on these children and their schooling is nothing less than remarkable or...

Finding compassion below the surface From an unlikely discussion between Russel Brand and Rene Brown about our views of others not doing their best. If you choose to listen you find out how this concept made me feel guilty and sad which I was not expecting and took me completely by surprise. Because of this reaction I wanted to explore deeper with a view from an NLP perspective and how we can use this to create change not in others but You and I. If you do come with me you may discover...

Making it How clever are you? Clever enough to make it? Probably Not - WHAT!!!!!!! and that's a good thing! So now I've poked you in your metaphorical eye you have got to listen now. You see you don't know enough to be clever enough to know what you want and never make it. Thing is there's a balance between specifics and generalities which allow you to know what you want and achieve that and those goals and the wonderful ripples that will spread thought the rest of your...

FMQ 258 Self sabotage -Not Again!!!

7/23/2019
More
Self sabotage - Not Again!! I got carried away - again! Started talking about that subject I really find is just irritating and how this badge of honour is simply an excuse and not to worn proudly. There are reasons why we 'sabotage' ourselves. What are they? Fear of failure Fear of success But let's go beneath the surface of both of these - the why's, the what's and the how's and what we can do that eliminates all of this. As we understand our intentions we can see through these fears...

Not just doing something different - a personal story I have just been writing in my journal and that lead to sharing a personal story of treading water and now it's time to swim. "If you want what you never had you will have to do what you have never done" Tiffany Dufu The thing is when I considered the thought of just treading water I go to thinking 'what about the things I have achieved?' Let me share with you where my thoughts went with even a little story. To get something...

I'm too OLD too YOUNG Just like we discussed in FMQ 256 another reason, or excuse as we call it out, for not investing in ourselves (yep I'm in here with you) is when we say: I'm too OLD too YOUNG And we seem to say this without thinking. Come with me and listen to my personal experiences and those of my youngest son, Joseph, in which we nearly fell into this trap. Once you do follow me down this rabbit hole you will never believe your age has anything to do with accomplishing...

Dig your well and leave a legacy Metaphors are dripping all over the place in this 5 minute quickie podcast The saying of 'Dig the well before you become thirsty' by Harvey Mackay has been used as a foundation of 'good' networking but I wanted to think a little alternatively and see where we can use this saying more widely for our purposes of simply being better (at anything) So is it one well or many wells? and who digs? and what type of well is dug? This all goes to creating a great...

Where do our beliefs come from A personal story I wanted to share a personal story of some recent work I did with myself and more specifically the beliefs that came up that I wasn't expecting. I'll also share what happened as I worked through them. Come with me and hear this story of experiencing of not so nice feeling and how I communicated with it and my unconscious mind and how they communicated with me. Where do these beliefs come from and when I thought about it I could remember...
