Picture of a man climbing a mountain.

Aloha, I read some research on goal setting that I just had to share with you. If you’ve been in the personal growth & development field of a while now, you might have heard about the “1953 Yale Study of Goals.” This study supposedly states that writing down goals makes you more likely to achieve […]

What to do When “Anger Management” Doesn’t Work

Aloha, I wrote a new Psychology Today blog on how to deal with anger issues. Yes, I know it’s big topic to cover in a small article. And as I do, I guarantee I’m going to ruffle some feathers and make a few folks angry. So be it. First, anger itself is not an “issue.” […]

Happy vs. Successful: Are Your Goals Making You Miserable?

Happy vs. Successful: Are Your Goals Making You Miserable?

Aloha, Everybody and their grandmother (and probably your grandmother) will tell you that setting goals is the key to success. I was taught goal-setting at an early age and I’ve taught goal-setting and goal-getting to thousands of my NLP and Huna students.

Aloha, One of my favorite questions asked by my students is, “Are hypnosis and NLP validated by science?” As I’ve stated in previous articles, we at The Empowerment Partnership don’t teach any techniques unless research has been done.

How NLP Helps Me Reach 80% of My Goals (and Actually Enjoy the Process)

Money

Everyone talks about setting and achieving goals. But I’ve been thinking lately that the goal-setting process is getting a bad rap. It’s becoming like flossing your teeth or creating a budget or “creating an eating plan.” Boring. No! Goals are the juice of life! Goals don’t have to be only the shoulds/obligations/responsibilities/burdens. Goals aren’t only […]

How to Stay Happy Around Negative People

Aloha, I’m pretty sure I don’t need to tell you how important being happy is to your well-being. In our NLP Trainings we teach that negative emotions are directly related to negative physical conditions. These include hypertension, impaired immune system, cardiovascular disease, digestive disorders, and infection. Bottom line? It’s better to stay happy! But what […]

Stop Letting Negative People Drag You Down

Picture of sad woman at home.

Aloha, Do other peoples’ moods affect you? Many of my NLP and Huna students say that they feel tired and drained around negative people. It’s almost like they get sucked into other peoples’ negativity against their will. Like hanging out with people who are sick with a virus or cold, it takes a strong immune […]
