The big ‘Oh’. How to manage your mid-life opportunity.

30. 40. 50 or even 60. Birthdays with a zero in them seem to mark a watershed in our lives.

A day can pass in the blink of an eye, the years fly by, but the anniversary of another decade of life often makes us sit back and take stock of what we have done and what we would like to do. Do we need a new direction? Do we need a new goal?


What used to be known as the ‘mid life crisis’ is a common feeling and all too often seems to have a clichéd response; the sports car, the dramatic career change, the new partner.

Perhaps what those responses are doing is to change what is outside of ourselves, the symbols that we think define us to the world, when what we needed to do was to change what was inside.

Most of us face these life transitions on our own. It can be difficult talking about our anxieties and insecurities to family, friends or colleagues.

We often get the wrong answers and that is because we often ask the wrong questions.

NLP helps us to understand where we are, to see things clearly and accept situations without a feeling of failure.

NLP gives us the tools to understand how we think, how we communicate those thoughts to ourselves as well as to others and how that affects how we see our world.

Without that clarity of thought and vision, how can we hope to make the right decisions?

It’s only a crisis when we are confused. When we see things more clearly, it’s an opportunity.

These life transitions aren’t just driven by the calendar. It could be a feeling that you have hit a ceiling in your career; possibly you’re no longer sure that you are even on the right career path, or maybe you just woke up with the feeling that your life needed to change.

Change is good, but it needs to be managed, otherwise you can end up with chaos, or an unwanted sports car. We can help show you how to manage your mid-life opportunity.

Our online courses, in particular our NLP Business Practitioner and NLP Master Practitioner courses enable you to be objective and non-judgmental about where you are and how you feel about that.

They lead you to a clear picture of where you want to be and how you want to feel.

They will allow you to tell yourself what you need to do to get there.

So let’s get that conversation started.
