Will you let history keep repeating itself?

by James Swindells News and Society, Self Improvement
So a few days has passed since the tragic events of last Wednesday 22nd March 2017 where we are led to believe that a man called Khalid Masood drove his car along the pavement of Westminster Bridge then charge the barricade of Westminster palace and jumped out and stabbed a policeman to death. 5 people lost their lives and five families lost a loved one and will be suffering tremendously as a result. The first question I want to address is ...

What is NLP training?

by James Swindells Self Improvement
In this blog I want to talk about the often very misunderstood field of NLP training. So what is NLP in simple terms? Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) started in the 1970’s as the study of excellence by two men called Richard Bandler and John Grinder. NLP training started when they studied three therapists that were getting extraordinary results and tried to figure out how they achieved these results. To do this they modelled them, imitated and observed every tiniest detail until ...

The Most Powerful Mindsets You Will Ever Need

by James Swindells Self Improvement
So in this blog I want to address common limiting beliefs that are in our society that hinder our personal growth and development. But I’m not going to focus on what’s wrong but suggest alternative mind sets that will drive us to the desired outcomes we are all capable of. So here are the most powerful mind sets that I believe should underpin everything you do and become your core philosophy. Anything is possible and the only limitations are self-imposed. Humans have ...

Things you should know about your immune system

by James Swindells Health and Fitness
Your immune system protects you from a variety of foreign invaders and if it is well maintained can combat the majority of things that is thrown at it. But sometimes it gets weakened and that’s generally when we get ill. So I want to cover a few things you can do to keep a strong immune system and as usual I’ll be giving my pragmatic, multi-faceted approach. So what you put in your body physically, psychological and spiritually all has an ...

The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth!

by James Swindells Self Improvement
I’ve got an obsession with the word truth. I have already written an article about it here and am going to write another one right now. People are so conditioned by society that they are completely convinced that their beliefs are true without ever scrutinising the information that they built it on. I’ve just watched a very frank, honest and unapologetic interview with world heavyweight boxing champion Tyson Fury. I’ll post the interview below but it appears that he is a ...

What It Means To Be Human?

by James Swindells Self Improvement
So what does it mean to be human? Are we innately pre-set to be good or evil? How much free will do we have? Why do some choose to do the things that they do? Because our real identities have been hidden from us we ponder these questions and have been conditioned to have certain beliefs about the way things should be. If we look at humanity it is littered with examples of great feats of benevolence and triumph at one ...

How To Win Any Argument

by James Swindells Self Improvement
Ok so I may have exaggerated in the title a little bit as you can’t win an argument with everybody. On emotive subjects where people’s beliefs are based on environmental conditioning as opposed to logical deduction some people will not be open to new information. The Meta model was designed by Richard Bandler and John Grinder to recover lost information that should have been part of the information an individual forms their belief on. Their view of the world is ...

Health and Fitness: The Basics You Should Know

by James Swindells Health and Fitness, Self Improvement
"Then send them to the master of gymnastics in order that their bodies may better minster to the virtuous mind" Plato So far I’ve blogged about a lot of psychological and spiritual aspects of our lives and I’ve stated that the body is just a vessel to navigate and experience this plane of existence. But just like your car that you drive around in you need to look after it. Your body has a major impact on your mental state and if ...

Define Yourself!

by James Swindells Self Improvement
For those of you have read my blog on The Greatest Lie Ever Told you will realise that my view of who we are is not a conventional mainstream one. One thing I see a lot of is people who are lost and just following a path that has been given to them rather than one they have created for themselves. A human is different from the rest of the animal kingdom in the fact that animals adapt to their ...

The Power of Language

by James Swindells Self Improvement
Have you ever thought that the words and language you use maybe controlling you and not you controlling it? Sounds a bit of a strange question as surely we control the sounds that we make from our mouths. Well we do, but what if the feedback loop between the conscious and unconscious minds meant that the words we said are a reflection of how we are feeling. And how we are feeling is the result of the words we use ...

Learning Has Occurred!

by James Swindells Self Improvement
Just a short blog tonight on how we learn. As usual I’ll explain the conscious mind and unconscious mind separately. So let’s start with the conscious mind. There’s a common misconception that when we learn, we figure stuff out through logical deduction. So when we learn there are two things that we start with. The first thing is “the known”, this is what we already know and our point of reference. The second is “the unknown” and new thing you want ...

The Greatest Lie Ever Told

by James Swindells Self Improvement
I thought long and hard about writing this one as I know a lot of people won’t be receptive to the information. The irony is they are not receptive to this because of the lie that has conditioned them. So all other problems in the world are underpinned by this. It is the starting point that we should have been given at birth but instead we have been given a world run by evil men for their own selfish purposes. You have ...

The Key To Maximising Your Personal Growth

by James Swindells Self Improvement
So in today’s blog I want to give some practical tips on freeing yourself from an unconscious process that hinders all of us at times. And that is the need for a particular outcome. You see when we want something that is important to us we are sending a conscious message to the unconscious mind that we are about to engage in something that involves risk. Because most people’s unconscious minds are set in default risk adverse mode. Yes there ...

The Greatest and Only Resource You Will Ever Need

by James Swindells Internet and Businesses Online, Self Improvement
Just got back from the second day of the Best You Expo at the Excel and I’m a little bit jaded. I listened to a lot of speakers and spoke to a lot of different business and personal development people with a lot in common. There was a representative for Tony Robbins there and it made me think about TED talk he gave about resourcefulness. You see in NLP we work on the philosophy that all resources are internal and that ...

The Process of Change

by James Swindells Self Improvement
I’ve just got back from The Best You Expo at The Excel Centre in London and spent the day around people who are into personal development and entrepreneurship. There were some differences between us as we all had a slightly different perspective and goals but we had all had some common aspects to out journeys. One of these was thst there came a point during our training because ofthis new information that we all had to re-evaluate out beliefs and values. ...

The Downward Spiral of Self Pity and Being a Victim

by James Swindells Self Improvement
In today’s blog I am going to discuss something that is extremely disturbing or empowering depending on your viewpoint. There’s no doubt that terrible things happen to people sometimes and it can feel like we are the victim of circumstance. But what if instead, we are the architects of our own fate? At first it sounds like we are blaming the “victim” instead of the perpetrator but consider this. If you can reframe the situation to be in control there is ...

Everything they don't want you to know about racism

by James Swindells Self Improvement
In this article I want to talk about a very emotive topic to many people and explain what it really is. There are a lot of huge misunderstandings about this topic and as usual it boils down to the lack of understanding of our old friend, the unconscious mind. I also want to expose some of the real issues that most people will not know about. I consider this information so important that it SHOULD be taught in schools and ...

Fear this!

by James Swindells Self Improvement
In this article I want to address another misunderstood concept around personal development which is another nuanced point. It is no coincidence that most human beings want everything spelt out to them in “black and white” when every aspect of the universe is a spectrum. For example the electromagnetic spectrum. This is a feature of the unconscious mind as I’m sure those who regularly read my blog are now beginning to understand. So today’s subject is fear. I want to first ...

The Way of the Warrior

by James Swindells Self Improvement
In this blog I am going to be talking about one of the most misunderstood paths of development out there. I am going to be talking about combat and specifically those who engage in it. Along life’s journey there are many paths, some are slow and winding others are harsh and steep. The way of the warrior is the latter. For those who can endure the hardships, great progress to the top of the mountain can be made at a far ...
