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.

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.

The 5Ps to Prosperity

By | ABNLP, Applied NLP in Business, Billy Kueek, Coaching, Corporate training, Hypnosis, NLP, Personal Development, Time Line Therapy, Training

Prosperity can mean different things to different people. To some, it means wealth, and for others it may be their health, family’s well being or financial freedom. However one defines it, the main elements that will guarantee its success are universal. Here are some tips to get you started.

Passion

Sometime ago, I wrote a quote that says: “Without passion, life is only motion”. Passion is the driving force behind all successful people and companies. It provides the ‘fuel’ that keeps you going during tough times, gets you up in the morning and motivates you to persevere no matter what. While many people may have a great idea and a wonderful plan to implement it, some may abandon it halfway due to lack of passion and enthusiasm.

To find your passion, think about what are your values – the inner forces that drive your thoughts, actions and behaviors. By understanding yourself better and knowing your personal values, you can then work with them or change them to maximize your potential.

Planning

Another one of my quotes is: “Proper Planning Prevents Potential Problems”. Yes, planning is needed too when it comes to wealth. How else would you know what to prepare for, how to organize your ‘wealthy’ ideas and put them into action? By planning, you will also be prepared for setbacks and know what alternative actions you can put into place to overcome obstacles. Success comes to those who are prepared, so plan ahead to stay ahead!

Procrastination… Not!

Procrastination is like the ‘evil twin’ to productivity. Although many would love to have more money or better health, there are just as many who would put off doing something about it. Then ideas of success remain as that – just ideas. So if you find yourself feeling not too motivated or lethargic about doing something, try something different today. Go for a short walk or people-watch at a local mamak; by simply changing a small part of your daily routine, you put yourself in motion and that will get you off the chair and put you one step closer to your desired prosperity.

Persistence

In order to succeed at whatever you want, you need to have patience and persistence. When one plan does not produce results, try and try again. If one way does not produce results, then try another way. In NLP, we advocate ‘There is no failure; only feedback.’ By persevering and continuing to try to make it work – that is the hallmark of a fighter, of someone who is willing to do whatever it takes to triumph and emerge victorious.

Positivity

There is an NLP Presupposition that states: perception is projection. Whatever you are thinking about is thinking about you too. For example, even in a crowded shopping mall on a weekend, if someone believes that they can find a parking space and visualize exactly where or how they can get it, 9 times out of 10 they will find one.

Positive thinking can create life-changing results. So in order to attract more wealth, good health and even happiness, you have to think positively about it and believe that you are wealthy, healthy and happy, and that you deserve it.

We are all destined to achieve excellence, but in life, there will be obstacles along the way. The idea that everyone is in charge of their thoughts, behavior and success led my team and I to create the Live By Design Certification Training Program. The program combines NLP with Time Line Therapy™, Hypnotherapy and coaching to provide a complete toolkit.

Imagine having the tools that will help you cope with life’s challenges while at university, at work or at home, and be able to have a positive mindset no matter what happens. You would like to have that, wouldn’t you?

Neuro Linguistic Programming is one of the best empowerment tools you can learn and is used by millions including Oprah Winfrey, Anthony Robbins, Sophie Dahl, Lily Allen, Bill Clinton and Tony Blair. How you apply NLP in everyday life is really only limited by your imagination. It can be utilized for anything, from parenting to work, from enhancing relationships to achieving your goals, from taking control of your life to performing at peak state in sports… the  sky is the limit when it comes to NLP.

Billy Kueek International offers internationally recognized certifications in NLP, Time Line Therapy™ and Hypnotherapy at Practitioner, Master Practitioner and Trainer levels. As the only training company in the region with two NLP Master Trainers and Hypnotherapy Master Trainer, Billy Kueek International runs the Live By Design Certification Training Program in Malaysia and Singapore several times a year for you to transform your life.

Coaching Children for Success

By | ABNLP, Applied NLP in Business, Billy Kueek, Change, Coaching, Corporate training, Hypnosis

How many of us had grand plans when we were younger – wanting to run a major corporation, be the best tennis player in the world, become President – and yet, how many of us actually see our plans turn into reality? What stopped us from achieving them? And more importantly, can we do anything about it?

There are also those who do achieve their goals and are very successful and still have this feeling of emptiness within themselves, that there is something missing.

If you feel that there is something holding you back from becoming the person you were meant to be, then you should speak to a coach who will help you discover what is truly important to you, what is the purpose you so desperately seek yet did not know it was missing and help you live a rich and full life.

Coaching is a form of personal development where the coach and the client work closely together to help the client achieve their goals. Coaching is applied in many areas of life, from sports to business to personal, depending on the client’s needs.

The coaching relationship is a special one. In order for it to work, you must first be prepared to work on whatever problems may arise. Secondly, you must be open to sharing as it is by being open that the coach is able to discover the root of the problem and therefore address the issue. The coach has been professionally trained and is the best person to help you so let him do his job. There have been times when we see clients telling coaches what they think the problem is and how the coach should help them.

Different types of coaching

Life coaching – the coach facilitates the client’s growth in work and also in personal life.

Executive coaching – usually client is senior management or higher and the coach works on business related issues as well as on client’s personal development with the focus on achieving better business performance and results.

Parent coaching – to help the client improve their parenting skills and help their children lead happy, balanced lives.

Sports coaching – coaching the client to improve and develop their sports skills. The coach is not necessarily a sports trainer, but rather one who focuses on the client’s mindset, to think like a winner.

Depending on the client’s specific needs, there are many more forms of coaching that are available.  Billy Kueek International certifies Impact System© coaches, in our Live By Design Practitioner Certification Training, who use a combination of NLP, Time Line Therapy™, Hypnotherapy and Emotional Intelligence to help their clients in a variety of areas.

An Investment For Life

By | ABNLP, Addiction, Applied NLP in Business, Billy Kueek, Change, Coaching, Corporate training, Hypnosis, NLP, Personal Development, Time Line Therapy, Train The Trainer, Training, Weight Loss

How much is your life worth?

When you are healthy, you may not be willing to pay much for medical care.  However, for someone who is sick, they would pay any amount to get better.  The value of something is based on what someone will pay for it.

Most of us buy life insurance because, in the event something happens to us, our family members will receive the insurance money, which is substantially higher than what was paid.  However, that usually means the insured is no longer around (or is incapacitated).

Here’s the thing though – When you invest in the Live By Design Practitioner program, you have the opportunity to change your life forever.

As an accountant would explain it – let’s say the program costs USD 3,000.  And let’s say you are now 30 years old, so we estimate you will be working for the next 30 years.  If you are able to change your life today, the investment of USD3,000 spread over 30 years is only USD 100 per year, or about USD 8 per month, or a mere USD 2 per week, or – and this will blow your mind – less than 30 cents per day!

Imagine – your investment in yourself, in improving, enhancing and bettering yourself, is less than the cost of a cup of coffee per day.

That is probably the best investment you are going to make. One that starts paying ‘dividends’ immediately, where you and your family members and friends will benefit, rather than wait for something to happen to claim the insurance.  And you will surely continue to benefit for the rest of your life.  The return on your investment will be many times greater than the money you pay and you will reap the rewards every day.

So when someone asks me, why they should pay to join our program, I ask them how much their life is worth.

From the desk of Dr Billy Kueek

A great big HELLO to everyone!

How time flies by! It seems like I was just wishing all of you Happy New Year yesterday, when in fact we’re already a month into 2013!

So how was your January 2013? How many of you started it by making new year resolutions? If you did so by setting S.M.A.R.T. goals and are well on your way to realizing them, then congratulations on your tenacity & determination, and I wish you the best of luck in your endeavors!

Sometimes though, resolutions can be a hit-and-miss affair if it’s more of a ‘wish’ list. As you think of the year ahead, what do you see yourself achieving? What are you thinking? How do you feel? The good news is, with the right skills, you can make that wish list into a YES list!

We’ve got a fantastic line-up of courses planned for the whole year and there’s bound to be one (or more) that is suitable for your needs & schedule. In response to growing demand for specialized NLP programs which focus on specific topics, we have some very exciting programs for the corporate market, in particular Applied NLP in Sales. This program is based on my book Using Psychological Techniques in Selling. Whether you are selling products, services or simply yourself, this program promises potential, profits and power-packed breakthroughs.

Another one that I’m very excited about is our Live By Design Practitioner program. This 8-day program is very dear to me as it gives me the opportunity to personally know the participants. Emotional baggage, inner conflicts, phobias, limiting beliefs… all removed, released & resolved! Seeing participants achieve such tremendous breakthroughs certainly motivates us even more to continue doing what we do, transforming people inspiring lives.

For those who wish to take their learning further, we have the Live By Design Master Practitioner program. For those who are determined about becoming a trainer, we have the NLP Trainers’ Training that is certified by ABNLP (American Board of NLP) and internationally recognized. So if you think about it, when you take all 3 programs this year, by the end of 2013 you will become a full-fledged NLP Trainer! How awesome is that!

Did you know that we are the only training company in the region which offers all this training, especially at the Trainer level, and also the only company in the region with two NLP Master Trainers? I would also like to humbly announce that as of now, I’m the only NLP Master Trainer certified by both ABNLP and NLP University, plus I have the honor of being the first Hypnotherapy Master Trainer in South-East Asia.

Such accomplishments would not have been possible without your constant support. I thank each and everyone one of you for joining me on life’s great journey. Now let us all make 2013 EXCEPTIONAL, EXCITING & EXTRAORDINARY!

Postponing Your Success

By | ABNLP, Billy Kueek, Change, Coaching, Corporate training, NLP, Personal Development, Training, Weight Loss

If I were to offer you a million dollars and gave you the option of taking the money now or in three years’ time, I suspect most of you would take it now.  Yet, when it comes to changing their lives for the better, a common response is, “Wait and see first.”

My question is, what are you waiting for?  How many of us are delaying or postponing the opportunity to have an even greater life?  Of course your life could be great right now but would you like it to be even better?  You see, if you were to offer someone money, even if they already had a lot of it, chances are they would take it now.

Success is not always in monetary terms.  And perhaps therein lies the problem.  When it is difficult to be quantified or is not tangible, we are less certain.  So in response to whether you want a better life, we are prepared to wait.  Could it be that we enjoy the pain of whatever is bugging us and until the pain is great enough, we are not likely to do anything about it?The choice is yours – Success Now or Later?
