Throughout history, mankind always endured challenges. These challenges were placed upon them by social, economic, environmental conditions, and by themselves. Some gave up hope, while others were flexible and adjusted by finding an alternative solution whenever a problem occurred. Some had support and guidance, while others faced constant fear and negativity from others, and are unaware of their hidden gifts.

Society has conformed us and we are lead to believe that our lives have to be structured in a certain way.

Meaning going to school then to university, and eventually time to marry and start a family.

That is okay however when an age limit is fixed for someone to achieve something at a certain age, the pressure often does more harm than good. I read an article last year in which they indicated that 70% of people are unhappy with what they are currently doing and wish or often think of doing something different.

Don’t give up your job just yet because you need a plan.

My views regarding this high percentage is due to the following reasons:

. Environment or culture they operate in clashes with their values and beliefs

. The economy and how certain industries being affected impact uncertainty

. The human mind of being in a constant curiosity phase; “What if”

. The pay might not be worth the energy you put in

Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and the subconscious mind:

NLP deals mainly in the subconscious mind, and it is the domain of all emotions. So any past memories, good or bad, are stored here. Often the bad experience in the past plays a role in not achieving your best version of yourself. Hence that trauma or bad experience needs full closure.

There can be a few people at an event and we all witness the same event, but the internal representation we make about the outside event are not necessarily the event itself. So the internal representation (I/R) combined with our physiology creates a state of mind.

That state of mind can be a happy state, sad state, confused state or a motivated state etc. The event itself comes through our sensory input channels such as: taste, smell, feel, hearing and seeing. The information is then filtered and we process this event that we experienced. During this process phase we delete, distort and generalise the information that comes in so we don’t experience true reality but our own reality of the world. Then you have other factors that change your perception. Example: value, beliefs, memories and decisions we made in the past that worked for us or against us. All life lessons which helps us grow.

Let your mind be free of worry, and live in the now state. We can’t control everything in life so relax and enjoy life as it unfolds, and set your mind free so you can fly with a smile.
