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.

    FMQ 307 I Had A Dream

    I Had A Dream Nothing even near a little bit like the MLK Dream that inspired the world. But just a dream that when I thought about it and saw the message. The thing is the message didn't jump out at me but a series of things happening that over time went Ahhhhh! I got it. I hope by sharing this it may just get you to think, not overthink, and make up answers but ask the right questions to let the Ahhhh! come to your conscious awareness and then follow that advice. It's all about asking the right questions

    #200 Accepting 2nd Best

    Accepting 2nd Best If you wouldn't accept 2nd best why do you? What? Where do we, you and I, accept 2nd best, It'll be ok it's good enough or it's just about good enough - It'll do? From ourselves maybe. We don't like accepting 2nd best from others, do we? This is a bit of a forerunner to episodes to follow. They are going to include going into serious subjects such as loneliness, depression, OCD suicide, and trauma to name but a few and I want to ensure when we do we hit them being our best because when we

    FMQ 306 Striving

    Striving Here's something to think about and you can muse about it right now, doing the thing you're doing right now. Are you doing your best right now? or is it just good enough or maybe Oh! I never thought about it. Would you put up with "Well it's good enough" or "Just good enough" when you're engaging the services of others? Hmmmm I think not Yet you may accept it when you do things for yourself or others. What would you think if this was the standard that you or a significant other brought to your rela

    #199 The Wrong Way To Success

    The Wrong Way To Success Maybe when we look at how to be successful we have so many ways to choose but we have to prepare for it. Are there only the right ways? Hmmm, let's have a think about that. I love sharing a process created by an NLP wizard called Robert Dilts and it makes so much sense, well to me it does. It's called the Logical Levels, I'll briefly tell you about it. It is soo important to me because it helps me with every client I work with. But and I don't often like a but I got to thinking, may

    Digging through S**T

    Digging through S**T Firstly apologies but I have a little swear in this. Why? - Because I get and have gotten so cross at something I heard and hear too often by people who should know better. It's a well-known fact that people of influence can affect people's beliefs and therefore have a responsibility for what they say. In short: Change can be quick and comfortable if you want it to be - Maybe they didn't! Please share if it's okay to do so  :O) Paul

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.

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.
