This week I’m going to keep it short as I’m busy preparing for the NLP Conference which starts on Friday. Thinking about the Conference and looking at the programme reminded me of the value of learning as a way to boost your self-esteem.
This makes learning another form of self-care. This is boosted further when you learn with others. The social element creates a positive affect and a sense of belonging. When the learning is a little challenging you also get the additional benefit of feelings of accomplishment and success.
We recently completed an NLP Practitioner Training spread over several months. The students really bonded and supported each other. On the evaluation days some of the students felt anxious. After the results were announced the feelings of success were even greater.
Have you ever had that experience?
Take a moment to review what learning opportunities you have given yourself recently.
You could choose to learn a new hobby, learn a language or learn a practical skill. What about starting some academic studies? You could even start a journey of self-discovery such as NLP Practitioner or beyond.
Some of our new students recorded some reflections on their experience. Click the link to find out more.
Next week I’ll be at the NLP Conference so will get back to you the week after.
