A Success Insight – by Thomas Wakefield

Saturday, June 2nd, 2012

The following is really one of the most amazing insights ever spoken.  Consider the implications of these words in your life as concept and fact.

Virginia Satir to Richard Bandler*
“You know, Richard, most people think the will to survive is the strongest instinct in human beings, but it isn’t.  The strongest instinct is to keep things familiar.”

Think for a moment, then thinking, apply this to making or allowing changes in your life, or someone you know, relative to living “too” safely.

There is nothing wrong with safety.  I certainly appreciate feeling safe.  I have also dived into an oceans black water at midnight to go for a swim, flown airplanes upside down and backwards and will soon add a skydiving license to my adventures.  My point along with my belief that we should all have a healthy ratio between safety and adventure is, no one should be “stuck” holding on to garbage when their life could be a steak and lobster dinner. :-)

* Credits:  Virginia Satir was a very successful family therapist in the 1970′s and 80′s and my friend.  Richard Bandler worked in Virginia Satir’s office and at some point teamed up with John Grinder and the term NLP (neuro linguistic programming) was coined.  NLP is a very powerful, simple and basic change/transformation body of knowledge.  I took this quote from Richard quoting Virginia in his book, Richard Bandler’s Guide to TRANCE-formation.
