    happy#206 - insides into coaching

    These years lockdowns turn out to have something quite positive for me. I don‘t think that I have stayed for so long at the same place in the last 10 years.
    That meant for me not going on any adventures, not traveling and not starting anything new. Well, at least not except for my tiny farm project in the Swiss mountains.

    I was frustrated about that at times, but after accepting the fact it forced me to acknowledge reality and live in the moment.
    What could I do right now and right here?
    What do I want to do right now and right here?

    Among other things I focused on bringing my business online. I worked on my online presence and I finally took my time and started editing videos, mostly because I want to start publishing the recorded videos of the last years. As a result I decided to also publish the Podcast as a Videoblog as well.

    This is the first episode that will be available on both and you can have a look at my Simplicity Of Happiness channel at https://youtube.com/flohjoe

    In the episode I talk about a principle that I have in mind while coaching. It is strongly related and almost identical to the logical levels of Robert Dilts. His work influenced and shaped NLP and his model and the intervention based on Dilts logical is fundamental to NLP to this day.

    The 6 levels are: top to bottom:
    - Spiritual
    - Identity
    - Beliefs
    - Capabilities
    - Behavior
    - Environment

    Until then, take care my friend.

    Best, Floh

    happy#204 - living now

    Worry fear and being scared is often routed in the past or the future. Most often the worst a moment right now can be, is unpleasant.
    Worry and grief often comes from the past, from something that already happened.
    Fear and anxiety on the other hand comes from thoughts about the future. As the future is never present it is only the thoughts that create the anxiety. The thoughts are created by your mind. Therefor you can change the thoughts and the fear that comes with it.
    Being in the present moment and embracing what is right now is the best way to get rid of the bad feelings. Being truly present and living now is how to overcome fear and grief.

    happy#203 - what scares you most

    happy#203 - what scares you most

    What scares you most may be, what you secretly desire.
    I am convinced that every one knows the feeling of fear.
    * fear of being hurt
    * fear of failure
    * fear of not being liked
    * fear of being left alone
    * fear of being unimportant
    * fear of being forgotten

    There are a ton of different reasons to be scared, Only very few deal with physical harm though. While it makes sense to fear pain and stay alert, a lot of other fears mean being scared of the unknown and want to keep us in a safe place.

    Inside your comfort zone is where you feel the safest, you know the rules, you know how to behave and how to deal with situations that may occur.

    As soon as you leave your comfort zone, your body and mind will tell you be cautions of getting hurt.

    While most things that could possibly be done or happen to you don‘t scare you because they are either not obvious or very unlikely, it is interesting to give those a closer look, that do scare you.

    Maybe because you secretly desire them.

    happy#202 - reduce your mental clutter

    happy#202 - reduce your mental clutter

    It has been a while that I moved from Berlin and it has even been a few years more that I started my journey to minimalism.
    There was a time when I could not let go of excess stuff. While my income was increasing I purchased new stuff every once in a while but I did not let go of the old.
    I used to have closets full of clothes, most of them I never wore.
    After I found out that less could actually mean more, I reduced and got rid of most things I didn‘t use.
    But still...when we started our 8 month journey with our old school camper-van Emma a lot of stuff didn‘t fit and stayed in Berlin. Some in friends basements, some stayed in the apartment with the friends who live there now.
    A lot of the stuff were books and it is a serious discussion, wheather it is really worth keeping books that you are not reading. After all, could you look up the information elsewhere once you need it.
    What has been a huge relief to me though was clearing out these friends place. Decluttering is not only important for physical stuff but also mentally.
    By getting these things done, I reduced mental clutter because I don’t need to worry about when and how we’ll take care of it. Freeing up your unconscious mind creates potential to deal with... e.g. creativity.
    What is it that you could reduce to free up your mind?
    Take care my friend, Floh

    happy#201 - symptom or cause?

    happy#201 - symptom or cause?

    Don’t we often mistake the symptoms for the cause?
    Somehow this seems to be a a very humanly behavior because we don’t only do it for ourselves.
    I have recently been on a road trip through Germany and I was shocked to see how many forests all over the country where dying.

    A result of the heat I thought and a research showed that they actually die because of some bugs.
    But the bugs have been there as long as the trees. So this does not have only one cause. Multiple factors of stress add up until they reach a level where the trees can’t cope with it anymore.
    Isn’t that the same in your life?
    Where do you confuse symptom and cause and what can you do to work on the cause so the symptoms disappear?
