Self authorship, the next step after self-responsibility

This week I am teaching an NLP Master Practitioner programme and so will keep my blog short. Having said that self-responsibility is an important feature of Master Practitioner training, by taking ownership of our experience we are becoming more resourceful and more connected with our authentic self.

So here is my question for you, what if self-responsibility is just the first step in awareness? What if we really are the author’s of our lives? What if everything that happens to us has a purpose and we chose to create that experience or person in our lives in order to teach ourselves something?

Now these are all very profound questions but here is where the rabbit hole really goes deep. What if all of the above is not true but we pretend that it is?

Consider this, if we create our own experience in order to learn and develop we can experience a greater sense of purpose and meaning in our lives. If we can create more meaning in our lives our resilience increases, we bounce back from adversity quicker!

So here is my tip for this week, if something happens to you, even something unpleasant explore a new perspective. Ask yourself “what could this mean?” Consider your answer and then ask “What else could it mean?” “and what else?”

These are all questions we explore on our NLP Master Practitioner so if you want to know more you can always join us next time.

Let me know your thoughts and comments about being the author of your life.
