What NLP Can Do For You
Your life is a reflection of your mind.
Please read that again and contemplate; your life is a reflection of your mind.
This is a short post as evidence of what’s possible when you are in charge of your mind. If you had any doubts that mind really reigns over matter, and… your body, your achievements and ultimately your whole life, just read below.
Recently on LinkedIn one of our past graduates privileged us with a beautiful acknowledgement. I would like to acknowledge her back because we’re talking here about one of the women who could set an example not only for sports people in general but for all people around the world.
There is not much to say except that Shelley Taylor-Smith is a 7-time World Marathon Swimming Champion and according to Wikipedia
“Taylor-Smith’s first major achievement was breaking the world four-mile record in 1983. Subsequently, she won the Manhattan Island Marathon Swim five times, breaking the world record in 1995 for swimming the 48 km distance in five hours, 45 minutes and 25 seconds. She also won the Australian Marathon Swimming Championships three times, and seven consecutive FINA Marathon World Cups. She won a gold medal in the inaugural open water swimming event at the 1991 World Aquatics Championships in Perth, and a bronze at the 1994 Championships in Rome.
“In 1998, Taylor-Smith was diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome after prolonged exposure to polluted water and Giardia lamblia infection, and was given six months to live. She nonetheless went on to win her fifth consecutive Manhattan Island marathon, and then retired from swimming.”
From the website Open Water Swimming we find that
“Triumphing over scoliosis, partial paralysis, benign breast tumour and chronic fatigue syndrome, Shelley is now the respected motivational expert on the power of the mind in achieving remarkable results in your life to become the Champion of your own world.”
“Now retired, she switched swimsuit for business suit and now shares her inspirational stories as a highly respected keynote speaker and trainer.
“In her business Champion Mindset™ Consulting, Shelley works with businesses and individuals to remove the blockages that stop people from achieving peak performance and ultimately success.
“Shelley holds Bachelors in Education in Physical Education, a qualified trainer in NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) and currently pursuing her doctorate in Psychology.
Let her success and achievements be an example for all those who think they cannot do anything in the face of adversities.
Here is what she said:
“Hi Tad and Adriana…
“I continue to thank you daily for coming into my life at a time…
here I lie still on the floor unable to move due to my back injury
My mind as powerful as always….
Determined to get to NLP Practitioner course
I took the taxi from Manly to Sydney lying on the back seat
Then took the class on the floor (do you remember that?)
“But you both so encouragingly and supportively revealed throughout the course
That my back problems were way deeper…
Yes my UC fears and self-sabotage at work yet again…
“As they say the rest is history
And my life and my business has never been better!
“Thank you love Shelley xxx”
Lots of love to you Shelley and only the best.
