A podcast for those wanting personal development but want it made simple and easy to understand and more importantly use, take action and make a difference to your life and the world you live in.

If you want to change the way you feel and the way you act and react. If you have negative emotions, behaviours, that you want to lose forever and create something special in your life then I think you will like what you hear.

This genre of self-improvement, self-development and mastery of your mind has, I believe, been made over complicated and secretive and here I am de-constructing the processes into their simple forms that we can all understand and easily use. There’s no interviews just little ol’ me ;0)

Who am I and what do I do?………Paul Clough.

I now love helping making changes in people and guiding them to create the life they really want.

A personal look at me:

The above sentence was not always the case and being the best in the financial realms of the building industry was my aim and getting there by any means. I now know this is, and was, the worst way ~ even if I did make director of one of the largest building companies in Cambridge by the age of 30.

One of the major realisations came on my first ever training in hypnosis. I found that it’s not a win lose world and that a win win is only a low basis to live.

Being true to your beliefs and coming from a place of integrity where service is paramount. This understanding together with lots of NLP skills helped create my last partnership in the building industry grow from a turnover of £800k to £16m in less than twelve years and that can only be done with giving more than expected.

Another shaping of me came from two traumatic events in my life that happened within six months of each other which created a number of major changes in me and by beliefs in what is possible. I have written about my experience and how I dealt with it but more importantly it really showed me my love for my three boys and theirs for me and resulted in the step up to become a trainer of NLP (which I never intended) and my close and exciting work with two of my sons. In supporting Joseph and help create change in people in our training’s and his wonderful life changing ‘Be your potential weekend’ and with Luke the continuing development of Cambridge Hypnotherapy and Hypnosis processes. My relationship with my third son Daniel just keeps getting better and better too.

Not knowing how good I had become in change work in the beginning I generally studied, practiced and saw clients then things started to happen when I started to work following just my instincts. Two clients come to mind both in effect dying from the effects of what was happening to them and the way they felt and within one and two sessions respectively not only won the will to live they changed virtually in front of my eyes and being apart of that process was and is the best feeling alive.

The above are just three of many brilliant learnings I have had in my life.
The more formal bit

    FMQ 353 Creating A Quiet Place

    Creating A Quiet Place Where we can.............. This Five-minute Quickie is about me taking you in your mind to my Quiet Place where I would leave the busy noise and think, relax, regroup, work out 'Stuff' and even sometimes just talk with someone one to one.
    As long as you have nothing that needs your attention and you could maybe close your eyes
    Then come with me
    And when you do you can realize you either have, can have, or can create one in your mind and simply enjoy the pleasure.
    I really hope you enjoy it, you never know I might even make a longer hypnosis track but you'll have to ask for that.

    FMQ 352 Do Yourself A Favor

    Do Yourself a Favor Do you want to know a ridiculously easy peasy way of changing how you feel in a moment?
    We all have times when things were a little stale, just not feeling it or I'm just out of sorts and it's affecting what I am doing or stopping what I'm about to start. What about those times when we're in the middle of something and I've lost the will.
    So welcome to the process I've called "Stop and Go!"
    To find out what it's all about you're going to have to press play and listen then do what you hear.
    Oh! nearly forgot I have a mini Ah-Ha moment during the recording
    While you're at it pay it forward and share this- here's the link:

    #268 So Why Not Me? I'll Tell You Why

    #268 So Why Not Me? I'll Tell You Why

    So Why Not Me? I'll Tell You Why Change the Question - Change Your Life! It seems so empowering to ask yourself "Why Not Me?"
    When you see someone doing what you would like to be able to do or aspire to and you ask that question you would imagine you are asking a positive and would feel motivated - But it doesn't happen  :O(
    There's a reason it doesn't happen and there is a way t make it happen and when you know the difference you are in charge and charged. Charged with being able to envision yourself doing that thing and it resonating through your whole body and then you get the motivation to start a plan to go from where you are to there, where you want to be.
    And the best part of this is it's really quite simple, remember in simplicity there is genius, and better than that I get to share all of it in this single episode.
    Now I could tell you hear but it is a podcast and that necessitates an auditory conversation so there are only two or three things you have to do.
    Set your intention and add a pinch of curiosity Press play >>>>> Share what you learn and this episode to everyone you know - Here's the link to use: https://personaldevelopmentunplugged.com/268-so-why-not-me/
    BOOM!
    My gratitude goes out to Mark Devine of the Unbeatable Mind podcast for inspiring this episode,  subscribe to it, and recommend you have a listen, you won't regret it.

    #267 How to Successfully Reach Your Goals - Act As If

    How to Successfully Reach Your Goals - Act As If "But What if I can't?" And NO it's not Fake It Until You Make It!!
    We've talked about acting as if on a number of episodes and it hit me the other day 'What if you have trouble acting as if' or 'You just don't get it, can't do it?' - That would be a problem and might lead you to not reach those goals or slow you down or make them less successful.
    So.......
    I put my head into it and came up with this - "What?"    Well, you're just going to have to press play and liste seeing as this is a podcast and not a book.
    I'll go through some thoughts on what might be stopping you and unlike others, I'll go into HOW you can change that and get to achieving that success you were destined for. All good stuff!   :O)
    So what are you waiting for? Press play and pick up all the golden nuggets and share this with everyone. Here's the link:

Adrianne Hart ,

Valuable nuggets and inspiration

I love Paul’s voice and casual vibes. I feel like we could have have beer together and I trust him as a professional.

cpnhmom ,

Love listening to Paul

Paul Clough has a great voice to listen to and has gotten me interested in looking into NLP training. I listen to his podcasts regularly and everything makes sense and is explained in easy language. His inner confidence series that he offers is great.

Yoginimelly ,

Great Tools for Self-improvement

I really enjoy Paul’s podcast. He explains a lot about how to get past the limiting beliefs and stories that you’ve been telling yourself, and to finally break free from negative emotions. Definitely recommend.
