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 278 Seeing Clearly

Seeing clearly A 5 minute Quickie Podcast Have you ever seen the man who spins those plates on sticks and in the chaos keeps running back and forwards keeping them spinning and then as he takes a bow they all seem to get in sync with each other? As I have been reading a great book by a great author Dr. Wayne Dyer 'Change your thoughts change your life' he quotes from the Tao "Muddy water will always come clear" and it got me thinking about the spinning plates, a child's toy and it how...

Something Special - Unconsciously And another free HYPNOSIS track I realised the other day I have talked about our unconscious mind, hypnosis and self hypnosis and never once have I shared with you an important story of how I learnt the name of my unconscious mind. So Today's the the day I share this with you. In fact this is the very first time I have shared this with anyone in more than 19 years. It's also episode #150 of the longer podcasts so a fittingly important subject and...

Action ends suffering - doesn't it? A Five Minute Quickie podcast This a a quick kick up the bum, a reminder or a flash of the bleedin' obvious :O) It's probably more meant to be a prompt from my unconscious best friend to get me to do something and I thought you, well you're like me, and it will prompt you. We have and will be talking about cause and effect, taking responsibility and this is another small part of that as it really dos effect all that we do or don't do BIG or small. So...

Are you going to let this de-rail you Sometimes issues, problems, seem insurmountable don't they? With it goes a little bit of pain or a lot and a few negative emotions to boot. Can you guess the ones I'm thinking about? If you choose to stay here, Choose Paul? I don't choose or didn't choose this it was caused by someone or something. Err, yes you did or do. I know I'm painting this in a hard way and that's deliberate because I want you to act or even re-act. Move to the cause side of...

First day steps to competency Hats off to a 'tip of the week' on the Jordon Harbinger show because you Jordan have inspired me to look at this and look to see where and how we can use it especially in regards to our goals and project and in effect in all that we do. I didn't realise I have been doing this for a long time and it took this great call to bring it out of my unconscious to a cognitive 'how to' Yes I know I am being so vague as usual but I want you to start listening with a...

That was Mental Health Awareness day So that was mental health awareness day - Hmmmmmmmm. I really don't want to be disrespectful or cynical but did you notice what I noticed? I'll probably upset a few with couple of my comments but if you have listened before I do have views of the term mental health and more specifically how it's been used. You will have to listen to see if you agree with mean my little moan. But and it is a but this time! I have also been blown away by a comment I...

It takes grit Another 5 minute quickie podcast What is it that irritates you? Could that be something that could be a pearl of passion in disguise? You see I have been thinking about this in a weird way with the metaphor of an Oyster This was brought to my attention by my son, Joseph, saying this really irritate you doesn't it Dad? Maybe this could be what you could solve and help people. I can't tell you what we were talking about yet but wait and see or hear :O) Nevertheless, I do...

A different view of fear from someone different Well here's a first for this unplugged podcast. For some time I've been musing if we could ask people with a passion for personal development to give a 15 minute recording so we get to hear directly different views on the subject matter this podcast is about. I'm hoping this may become a regular feature but that depends on you my friend and how much you enjoy and get from it. So I'm relying on you to let me know :O) I reached out to a few...

Double down your treat comes second Remember FMQ 270? Treating yourself before you reach the end or the successful completion of things in your life. So now I'm in a little bit of a quandary, what if treats should come after not during........Oh dear? Am I about to give you mixed messages? No, not really I am about to show you that both are true or both are not quite right. What................?

FMQ 272 To stay or leave STOP first

10/11/2019
More
To stay or leave STOP first In this 5 minute quickie podcast I'm exploring a little of cause and effect together with taking responsibility. Where does this take us? To ownership and when we take ownership of a situation or our excuses then we begin to make real headway. Sometimes taking ownership means having to say NO, not accepting unimportant, that seem important, tasks to make a diffenernce in a positive way. It all boils down to seeing things for what they are and committing. Seems...

#147 Controlling your memories

10/8/2019
More
Controlling your memories The question is can you? Control a memory that is. I guess it all depends on what or how you define control. For me it's can I, you, control the effect of a memory on our state - good or bad makes no difference. The answer is a resounding yes but we very rarely do. The thing about memories is that it depends on the emotional state you are in when you recall a memory because that will have a major effect on how you feel as you recall it. If you think about it if...

Letting go to find treasure Alright me little pirates X marks the spot - No not that type of treasure - but I guess you guessed that :O) So there's a man with these two very heavy suitcases - What's that got to do with finding treasure? Then I was reminded of a story I heard from a great hypnotherapist Micheal Yapko (great surname) and introduce to a quotation from Joseph Campbell's A Hero's Journey by a guy I've mentioned before, Jerry Caronna, "The treasure you seek is in the back of...

Time for a treat and success What would happen if instead of waiting to complete something your doing before you congratulate yourself and treat yourself for the achievement you you did in in the middle as well? Counter intuitive? maybe but it works and it works for everyone in any context. That's a BIG statement Cloughie Not really cos it does. Don't just trust me 'The Artists way' confirms this too as well as many more example. In my life it all started hearing about dolphins, I've...

Imposter syndrome part 2 So welcome to this second part of delving into our world of feeling an imposter. In some ways being an imposter to me means I'm not yet living to my full potential and as I understand and believe our potential is infinite ao I never will live up to my potential so I'll always be an imposter and that's OK!! :O) Now we've got that out of the way we can dive deeper into this syndrome the definition of a syndrome is: a group of symptoms which consistently occur...

But there's a very good reason for having or experiencing it - really Cloughie? Yep and over this...

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...
