Does it ever feel like nothing seems to be going right? Are you stuck in the rut of grueling routine? In this episode, Jacob Moore hosts Michelle Ensuque, an expert in neurolinguistic programming, an alternative approach to self-reflection and personal change that might be just what you need to spur some action in your life.
What you’ll learn from this episode:
How to become aware of subconscious driving forces
How to investigate the source of the drivers
The power of employing empathy from a place of emotional maturity
Change in your life, brain, and being start with the awareness of what is happening within. It's easy to get caught up in the mundane aspects of life, or you may find yourself falling into the same patterns. But have you stopped and thought...Why?
"I never really stopped and thought, "If this was somebody else in my situation and I could see them running themselves ragged, what would I say to that person? Because chances are, if that was your best mate, you would be going "What do you think you are doing?" Because this is not sustainable. But when it comes to ourselves, we seem to think that we can just continue in that way." - Michelle Ensuque
