Never Enough Time
Never Enough Time?Do you waste time or use it wisely? Are you constantly stressed because you are running out of time? Is there never enough time for you to do the things you want to do?
A Matter of Perspective
We all have the same amount of time (24 hours a day and 7 days a week), yet our perception of time will determine how well we use our time. Time, like money, is a resource. The difference with time is that it is more precious and valuable because you can never get time back. Meanwhile, you can always make more money.
Stop Any Further Regrets
In the past you have made decisions and choices regarding how to use your time, where to spend or not to spend your time, and with whom and on what activities. As you think about those decisions and choices, do you have any regrets with how you used your time? Do you wish you had:
The good news is that you can stop feeling regrets, disappointments, anger, frustration and beating up on yourself about your past choices, so you can start to make better decisions and choices regarding what you do with your time from now on.
- done things differently?
- not put off making certain decisions?
- made better life, relationship, career/business, health choices?
- spent less time on the things you hated, found irrelevant or boring?
- spent more time doing the things you really wanted to do?
- spent more time pursuing your passions, dreams and goals?
- spent less time with negative people?
- spent more time with the people that matter most to you?
Do You Live in Present, Past or Future Time?
Day to day we can live in the present and enjoy and appreciate every moment in the now. Alternatively, we can live our days with regular thoughts of the past and, therefore, live our now in the past. We can also live our days with too much thinking about the future and what may or may not happen, what could go wrong and the possible negative consequences.
Living in the past or in the future can cause us to feel stress, fear, anxiety, panic, confusion, frustration, procrastination and generally waste our precious time in the now.
If you have “unfinished” business from the past, you are probably dwelling on the past and cluttering your head and focus with what happened back then. Even though you are unable to change the past, how you relate to those past events and your perception of them can change. It is important that you have closure on the past so that you can move on - whether it be a past hurt, betrayal, argument, rejection, separation, divorce, loss, retrenchment, traumatic or other event.
It is difficult to totally appreciate your present experiences if your focus is clouded by past events. Often unfinished past experiences can cloud our decisions and choices about with whom we spend time and how we spend time from now on. Dwelling on the past also fills your head with the past, and makes it more challenging to be clear headed and productive in the now.
Unfinished past business also biases your current choices and decisions. For example, if you have past hurts that are unaddressed and that still “haunt” you, these can affect how you relate to people now, the depth or closeness you develop with your current personal and professional relationships, and whether or not and how you form new personal and professional relationships.
Likewise, if you focus too much on the future and what may or may not happen, what could go wrong and the possible negative consequences, it can impact on how you use your time now. Does thinking about your future help you to take action on your goals or does it cause you worry and procrastination? Do you daydream and wish about what you want or could do, or do you take action on this each day? Daydreaming on its own is insufficient, while lack of clarity of direction can also lead to confusion, scattered thinking and time wasting.
How do you relate to time? Are you very organised or disorganised? Do you do the things you said you would do when you said you would do them, or do you put them off to another time?
The way you relate to time now depends on many thing including your relationship to time, any unfinished business from the past, your clarity or lack of regarding your goals, and many other factors. The best way for you to have more time is to change any of these so that you: can make the best use of your time; have more time to do the things you enjoy; look forward to an exciting future; can make choices and decisions in the now which will help you to have the happiness and success you desire from now on.
Transform Your Relationship with Time today, and stop putting off your success and happiness:
I look forward to empowering you further and welcome your questions below or confidentially via email.

Top Three Traits Insecure People Have in Common
Top Three Traits Insecure People Have in Common Do your insecurities sabotage your success? Are you struggling to achieve the personal and professional success you desire? Would you like to know the top three traits that insecure people have in common?
While insecure people share many common traits, I have observed that they have three traits in common especially when it comes to promoting themselves. Often insecure people’s self doubts, fears and limiting beliefs are reflected in the behaviours below. They are usually unaware that they are doing these behaviours; they are on a subconscious automatic pilot. Insecurity is their comfort zone. It is only once they are made aware of their behaviour that they realise how they are limiting themselves.
So here are the top three traits I have observed in insecure people, especially when promoting themselves.
Common Trait #1 – They Undervalue Themselves
Your self-worth will determine how much you value and charge for your products/services/skills/ideas. When promoting their products, services, skills or ideas, insecure people undervalue themselves. They often undercharge, give away their services/ideas/skills for free, they resort to high discounting to secure business or undersell their abilities. Because they often have low self-worth and feel unworthy or deserving of more, they will accept less than what those who feel secure in themselves will.
People who feel secure in themselves will value themselves; they will charge a fee that reflects their skills and experience. Rather than over discounting, they will happily walk away from a potential opportunity because they have sufficient self-belief to create other opportunities that value what they have to offer. They will find more ideal clients, they will seek out ideal employers, they will negotiate with win-win partners, etc. They will never go into a price war or devalue themselves, they will focus on the value they deliver instead.
Common Trait #2 – They Put Others Down
As a result of their own insecurities, insecure people often put others down. They put other people down because that is what they know – they put themselves down too by beating up on themselves. This is their normal way of relating to themselves, so that is how they relate to others. Avoid taking an insecure person’s put down personally – it is a reflection of their own insecurities.
Rather than standing on their own merit and the value that they offer, insecure people resort to putting other people down so that they feel good about themselves. After all, if they can cut someone successful down to size, they themselves see less of a gap to rise to. Instead of rising to a successful person’s level, an insecure person finds it easier to put others down so that others “fall” to their level. This helps an insecure person to feel better about themselves as they no longer need to compare themselves to someone who excels. The other person is now at their level or lower (in their mind) and it is easier to “compete” with them at that lower level. It is less scary for an insecure person.
On the other hand, a secure person never puts others down to succeed. Instead, they stand on their own merit, on their own successes and their hard work. They have no need to compare themselves to others, they simply promote themselves in their own right, based on their hard won and deserved efforts and successes. Their promotion and marketing is about the benefits they offer and how they add value to others’ lives, rather than focusing on how they are better than their competitors/how their competitors do not do what they do.
Common Trait #3 – They Copy Others
Insecure people copy other people because they lack sufficient self-belief to create something on their own. If they were to create something on their own it may not be good enough, nor be perfect, they may fail or be judged for it. Instead, they stay in the comfort zone of their fears and insecurities, and they copy others and often those more successful than they are.
They inaccurately believe that if they copy a successful person’s marketing or ideas, or take credit for something that someone else created, they too will be as successful. I have seen insecure people do some bizarre copying, from dyeing their hair the same colour as a successful person to copying a successful person’s marketing material word for word. In all the cases that I have observed over the past 16 years, the copycat insecure person did not achieve the same success as the successful person. In most cases, the copycat is no longer in business.
If it took dyeing your hair or copying someone else’s words to be a success, we would have a lot of look-alike Richard Bransons and other successful business people in this world. As all successful people know, there is a lot of hard work, persistence, challenge and commitment that goes on behind the scenes for success. What people see and copy on the surface is insufficient for ongoing success.
As one enlightened lawyer said years ago, people who copy others never reach their full potential. This is so true, insecure people stay insecure by copying others. It simply reinforces their self doubts and insecurities that they are unable to come up with their own ideas, so they need to copy.
There is a huge difference between modelling successful people (what makes them tick and their behavioural and mindset strategies) and copying the surface of what people see. The former is much more empowering and a key to success (which we teach our clients to do), while the latter is a good way to stay insecure.
Would you like some help in overcoming your insecurities so that you can have the long-term personal and professional success you desire? Help yourself to some free NLP resources and empower yourself for success today.

How to Totally Trust Yourself
How to Totally Trust YourselfDo you question or doubt yourself? Are you overanalysing your choices and decisions too much? Do you trust yourself to follow your instinct or second guess it? Is fear holding you back from doing the things you desire? Would you like to totally trust yourself to make the personal and professional decisions and choices that are right for you?
Trusting yourself is the key to making decisions with which you are happy and that are right for you. To fully trust yourself you need to be free from your fears, self doubts and insecurities. Once you are, you have the clarity, self-belief and confidence to back yourself 100%, you follow through on action and achieve personal and professional success far more easily.
I am so excited as I just completed running our 61st NLP certification training. During our training, our students experience a highly personalised transformation, which assists them to totally trust and believe in themselves. I am so incredibly proud of our new Master Practitioners and how much they have transformed themselves over 16 empowering days! They stepped up to every challenge and excelled. Congratulations to our class of straight “A” graduates and thank you for your incredible commitment. We had so much fun learning and growing and it was a real joy to share this experience with such amazing people.
After 16 wonderful days of learning, growth and transformation, these excited Master Practitioners enjoyed a relaxing last day of training on Sunday. Here is one of them totally relaxed, stiff and rigid, and safely suspended across two chairs. This is ONLY possible if you fully trust yourself. What else can these amazing Master Practitioners do? You can see more exciting photos at Qt’s Facebook page.
Are you stuck in overanalyis, fear and inaction? Or are you trusting yourself to take action towards a more successful career/business, relationship and life?
Here is how to empower yourself right away for greater self-trust, self-belief, confidence and success.
I look forward to empowering you.
NB: Performing the above technique safely requires strict supervision by a fully trained and certified NLP and Hypnotherapy Trainer who will ensure that all students adhere to the strictest safety protocols during all exercises and techniques. This technique is to never be performed by an untrained person.

Supporting World Mental Health Day & Mental Health in the Workplace
Supporting World Mental Health Day & Mental Health in the Workplace
10th October 2017World Mental Health Day is on the 10th October 2017, with the overall objective of raising awareness and support of mental health issues around the world. Mental health in the workplace is the theme of World Mental Health Day 2017.
The World Health Organisation notes that “Globally, more than 300 million people suffer from depression, the leading cause of disability, with many of these people also suffering from symptoms of anxiety. A recent WHO-led study estimates that depression and anxiety disorders cost the global economy US$ 1 trillion each year in lost productivity.”
“A negative working environment may lead to physical and mental health problems, harmful use of substances or alcohol, absenteeism and lost productivity. Workplaces that promote mental health and support people with mental disorders are more likely to reduce absenteeism, increase productivity and benefit from associated economic gains.” (WHO, September 2017 Mental Health in the Workplace Information Sheet).
Because our vision is to create an empowered society, and over the past 16 years we have been dedicated to helping people improve their mental and emotional health, and personal and professional success, Qt is supporting World Mental Health Day.
If you know of family, friends or colleagues who are unhappy in their workplace and/or at home and would like some support, please offer them these free resources. Alternatively, ask them to email me for a confidential reply. Thank you for your support in empowering others.
