Living By Design – everything is impossible until it is done

Live By Design – December 2015: by Elvina Cheah, Children’s Coach

I came to know about NLP through a graduate of BKI – Olivia Ong. I was endlessly surprised by her ability to solve problems and coach people to see the true root cause behind every effect. She has coached me personally with the mere intention of getting me to move forward in life and liberate me from my limiting beliefs. I am a very competitive person and am afraid of being toppled. Such attitude made me wonder. what is it that gave her such character? With this, inspired as I was, I decided to model her.

Prior to the attending LBD, I had some sense of what I would like to achieve in my life and had no doubt I was already on the way there, along with a great team of people at my company. However, I did not feel fulfilled and my emotions tend to get the better of me. I was constantly overcome by anxiety and panic to the point I paralyse right before a training or an important task. To be honest, even today, I still face the same emotions. I had not generated any remarkable or impressive results that I thought I was capable of. And I only thought of why. Until I was taught Meta-Breaking and drilled for purpose. Carl Jung, the famous Swiss psychiatrist and psychotherapist who founded analytical psychology once said,

“Neurosis is the suffering of a soul which has not discovered its meaning”

As we know, NLP is the study of the mind with an approach to communication, personal development and even psychotherapy. I did my research about Neuro- Linguistic Programming then shortly after, with my phone, and little money, I decided to call up a few centers for NLP.

In the end, I decided to go for BKi, after surveying different NLP centers. Bryen, assisted me effectively and efficiently. From his quick response, I knew that I would be able to trust this institute. Shortly after that, Bryen conducted a Value Elicitation session with me and in just 15 minutes I got to see my life clearer than I ever did and what I desired all along, and what made me feel “neurotic”.

Attending LBD has turned my perspective at 180degrees because now, even in the face of panic, I have the courage to pick myself up and just do it because I now know how to handle my thoughts. I’ve mastered panic and turned it into adrenaline. And everyday, it wakes me up. It excites me to achieve more. Kit and Billy showed me the way of maximizing results in minimum time.

As much as I had the courage to dive deep, I would not have been able to have made it if not for the awesome trainers Kit, Billy, Voon Sia, Bryen, the team and even the participants. The power of their intention has transformed many lives, including mine. This investment brought me a breakthrough that will last me a lifetime. Writing this right now on the 8th of June 2016, I am excited to attend my MLBD and NLP Trainer course later this year as the goal I had set in LBD December 2015 :-).

Whoever is reading this, take action now. For your breakthrough will not only bring you greatness, but also fruits to your loved ones. We rise when we lift others.

Compete to raise the bar. Compete with yourself yesterday. And make the daily roofs your new floor.

Everything is impossible until it is done.

Take away time all we have is now, take away space, all we have is here.

My friend, there is no better time to start Living by Design.

“Knowing your own darkness is the best method for dealing with the darknesses of other people.” – Carl Jung

Decluttering – Part 2 update (quick tip)

By | ABNLP, Billy Kueek, Change, Coaching, Corporate training, Hypnosis, NLP, Personal Development, Time Line Therapy, Training, Uncategorized

On the matter of decluttering paper and documents, here is a quick tip on those papers that you should keep but are oh so fiddly. I am referring to receipts, especially for warranty purposes.  You need to keep receipts as proof of purchase when you may need to get the item repaired within the warranty period, yet nowadays, the receipts are printed on heat sensitive paper which fades over time.

One easy way to keep track of all this is to take a snapshot of the receipt and email it to yourself. Create a new folder in your email to store all such documents. To make it easier to search, the email subject should contain the item details, name of store and the expiry date (rather than the date of purchase).

For example, Philips kettle, Harvey Norman, 3rd June 2017.

This makes it easy for you to find the right receipt without opening all your emails, and when the expiry date has passed, you can delete the email. Most stores will accept a reprinted copy of the receipt, but do check when you are purchasing the item.

Decluttering your Life – part 2

By | ABNLP, Billy Kueek, Change, Coaching, Corporate training, Hypnosis, NLP, Personal Development, Time Line Therapy, Training, Uncategorized

Now that you have decided to start decluttering, you are wondering where to start. While there is no hard and fast rule on this, here is a suggested sequence to follow:

  • Clothes
  • Books, papers and documents
  • Sentimental items, gifts, “just in case” items
  • Photos
  • Bathroom
  • Kitchen
  • Store

CLOTHES

First of all, anything that is the wrong size or wrong colour has to go. What is the point of keeping that dress you have which is 2 sizes too small, hoping that one day you will be able to fit into it again? Or that blouse that is out of fashion, but may become fashionable again in say, 20 years! It has got to go.

If it is torn, or buttons missing, moth eaten, elastic worn out or just not your style, bin it. And that old T-shirt that has certainly seen better days but is so comfortably worn-in, if you won’t be seen in public in it, then it should not be seen at all.

Then there are items which you may have bought for “that occasion” which has not happened, or the bargains you picked up because the discount was too good to turn down, yet remains unworn.

Ask yourself for what purpose are you keeping those items of clothing. Do they serve any purpose apart from taking up space in your wardrobe. Stop kidding yourself that you will make use of it. It is only wishful thinking.

BOOKS, PAPERS AND DOCUMENTS

All important papers and documents should be filed neatly so that they can be found and accessed easily. Easier said than done as it is likely that they are all over the place rather than kept in a “to file” drawer or box. Again, like your clothes, you should take all your papers and documents and put them into a pile on your table (or floor) and sort them in one go.

Anything that is not important can be put in the recycling pile (or shredded). Those that you had planned to read but have not done so, time to throw them away into the recycling section. With the Internet bringing information in seconds, most of the papers we collect are not really needed. This included recipes that we may have cut out from newspapers and magazines as it is much easier to google for them.

If you are anything like me, you probably have at least 20 books in your home that you had bought but just never found the time to read. And the likelihood is that you never will. If the topic is not appealing enough, then give it away. Face the fact that the money spent on the book will benefit someone else, just not you.

Old books that have been read should also be given away. With the exception of classics and special books that you truly love (and will re-read), there is no need to keep a fully stocked library of books just to look well read. Let others enjoy them after you. You will be glad you did.

In our next posts, we will look at decluttering the next items on the list.

Declutter your life – part 1

By | ABNLP, Addiction, Billy Kueek, Change, Coaching, Food for thought, Hypnosis, NLP, Personal Development, Success, Time Line Therapy

How many of us are clutter free? Or is it more likely that we are surrounded by clutter? How did that happen and why do we allow it to happen? And more importantly, how do we declutter.

Clutter stops us from moving ahead. Some of us hide behind the clutter. Some find comfort in it. Some just cannot decide what to get rid of so they end up getting rid of nothing. Whatever the reason, it is time to clear our lives of the ‘stuff’ that we have collected.

The stuff that I am referring to is not just physical things though that usually makes up a huge portion of our clutter.

“Clutter is not just physical stuff. It’s old ideas, toxic relationships and bad habits. Clutter is anything that does not support your better self.” – Eleanor Brownn

Type of Clutter that we may have:

  • Physical – the things that we have in our homes, our offices, our cars
  • Mental – negative thoughts, limiting beliefs
  • Emotional – negative emotions, toxic relationships
  • Behavioural – bad habits
  • Financial – unpaid bills, uncleared debts, unfixed tax papers, unsorted documents, unwritten wills
  • Virtual – old emails, unopened emails, old phone numbers and addresses, etc

What is it that stops us from decluttering?

Here are a few reasons that sound good (sound familiar anyone?)

  • Too much stuff so it becomes overwhelming
  • Don’t know where to start
  • Make a start but give up too soon
  • Cannot let go
    • Have emotional attachments
    • “but it seems such a waste…”
    • “well, I may need it one day’
  • Cannot decide
  • Lack of awareness or in denial – emotional clutter
  • Not ready to face the problems – financial clutter

Let’s face it. We keep things. Just in case. That is the most common reason given for the things we have, just in case we need it, just in case it contains important information, just in case someone else needs it. And yet, if we are truly honest about it, that Just in Case moment has never arisen!

In our next posts, we will look into how to start decluttering and the benefits of decluttering.

What is NLP?

By | ABNLP, Billy Kueek, Change, Coaching, Corporate training, NLP, Personal Development, Success, Train The Trainer, Training

NLP as explained by NLP Master Trainers Dr Billy Kueek

 

Since we began marketing for our June LBD (Live By Design) Practitioner Certification Training Program, a class has been formed for June Intake in Singapore.  As the response was overwhelming, our original plan to conduct the training in our Singapore office has to be changed and we have finalized agreement to use the big Training Room in DWG (Dennis Wee Group) Properties.

 

The popularity of the program brought in many referrals and of course, generated much curiosity in NLP as well as LBD.  In this article, I aim to equip you with what NLP results you can achieve when you do NLP.

 

NLP stands for Neuro Linguistic Programming, founded by Bandler, Grinder and Frank in 1970s at University ofCalifornia, Santa Cruz.  Since then, NLP has branched out into many societies and Associations, Institutions and Groups.

 

  • Feeling lost and confused about life, career and relationship?
  • Wish to live a life of purpose and leave legacies behind?
  • Discovered that sometimes you perform at peak while other times struggling?
  • Knew that you have potential but not unleashed and don’t know how?
  • Discovered your limiting beliefs and decisions nut cant stop them from being barriers to achieving your goals?
  • Wish to go ahead, experience and explore things but blocked by negative emotions of Fear, Doubts and perhaps, sense of low self-worth and underserving?
  • Have negative habits that you have a problem getting rid of?
  • Frustration with and at work due to other people’s performance?
  • Would like to develop relationship better with people but learned that being sincere and true is not enough?
  • Wish to gain upper-hand in circumstances and people situations but worried if people even like you to begin with?
  • Wish to be the person you want to be, charismatic, magnetic and likeable?
  • Hope that I can read people’s mind so I can feel what they feel to sympathize and be able to deal with them the way they prefer to?
  • Want to get my point across and noticing simple logic is impossible with some people?
  • Want to communicate convincingly, influentially, persuasively and powerfully but don’t know how or lack confidence in?
  • Sincerely wish to help others with their problems but offering our negative experiences instead and taught the wrong things?
  • Enhance Self Confidence but no matter what you do, doesn’t seem to work?
  • Need for better self control to manage habits, discipline, motivation, energy, stress and googled but found nothing you don’t already knew?

 

NLP has the answer to these and more.

Top 5 Soft Skills to Succeed in the Workplace

By | ABNLP, Billy Kueek, Change, Coaching, Corporate training, NLP, Personal Development, Success, Train The Trainer, Training

Article contributed by NLP Master Trainers Dr Billy Kueek & Lim Kit Wan

 

In a recent survey conducted earlier this year, it is reported that soft skills are worth over £88 billion (more than RM476 billion) in gross value added to the UK economy each year, making it an important contribution to the service industry. Another large-scale survey conducted in the USA found that the top attributes companies look for when hiring new employees are communication skills (83%) and the ability to work within a team (74%).

 

Where qualifications, credentials and experience are important factor in determining whether someone gets offered their dream job, soft skills are the vital deciding factor as to whether someone will succeed in their career.

 

Hence soft skills are being highly valued by more and more companies now as they realize how these skills directly contribute to the wellbeing of the organization. Soft skills are also increasingly being recognized as key competencies that working adults need in order to secure employment and succeed in their chosen field.

In a recent global survey, over 20,000 people were asked to answer one question: “Things you wish you had learned in school, but no one taught you”.

The results were certainly interesting.

The biggest gap perceived by those in the survey was in Happiness & Positive Living. More than 60% of respondents rated this as being very important and yet they had received very little formal education on it.

Real and relevant education is becoming a precious commodity. If you agree with the respondents and are thinking along similar lines, imagine learning the skills and knowledge that will help you address your concerns and teach you to be a better parent, better spouse, better friend, have healthier relationships, be more positive and live the life that you want.

Discover how you too can live your best & learn how to take charge of your life right now. Come along to our free preview and find out more about the exciting world of self advancement & changing mindsets.

My Journey: Live By Design

By | ABNLP, Billy Kueek, Change, Coaching, Hypnosis, NLP, Personal Development, Time Line Therapy

Personal sharing of Jessica (24 years old) on her experience during a certification program conducted by Billy Kueek International

“Life is like a camera,

Focus on what’s important,

Capture the good times,

Develop from the negatives

And if things don’t work out,

Take another shot.

 

This quote perfectly sums up my LBD (Live By Design) journey organized by Billy Kueek International (BKI). LBD is short for Live By Design and not by default, a program which has benefitted me tremendously as it shows me how to live my life according to my own principles and own values, and not according to other people’s expectations. In our society or culture, there are no shortages of cases where people, friends and family members “recommend” how we should live our life, what work or job we should pursue, what course we should study, what to eat… and the list goes on. I am pretty sure all of us to do it – whether consciously or unconsciously – and I have had my fair share of being on the receiving end of these incidences as well while growing up.

 

In a nutshell, I became obsessed with how other people viewed me, or what they thought of me, and hence I became pessimistic. I was frequently angry, irritated and had lots of negative thoughts in my head. I became withdrawn, fearful of talking to people or strangers – fearful of them judging me and my appearance. I even dreaded going to parties and social gatherings because I would panic thinking about: “What if someone starts talking to me, and then compares me with my sibling (twin sister)?”
