Identifying repeating patterns of behaviour

Firstly, apologies for not getting my blog out last week, I have a good reason. We moved house on Monday and quite frankly it was chaos! The good news however is that we are now settled in our new location on the edge of beautiful Ashdown Forest.

We also then went straight on to teach a four day NLP Diploma workshop in our new purpose built training room. It is lovely to know this is where all our future NLP courses will be taught looking out over the amazing view across the Forest.

So back to the plot! How do we identify repeating patterns of behaviour?

I recommend you start by drawing up for yourself a life line. This can be a quite intense experience so make sure you choose a time and space that is suitable for you. You might even want to work with someone else so that you get some support during the process.

Draw a line to represent your life from conception through to where you are now. Use colours, pictures and symbols to represent significant events and moments from your life. You can either free draw or cut images out of magazines to stick on your life line. Include both positive and negative markers.

Step back from your picture and notice the repetitions, circles, the patterns as they emerge. Start by looking at big events such as relationships, jobs, friendships etc. You can also look at smaller patterns around how you live your life.
