Pick yourself up dust yourself off start all over again

Nice teacher, teach me something
I’m as awkward as a camel
That’s not the worst

My two feet haven’t met yet
But I’ll be teacher’s pet yet
‘Cause I’m gonna learn
To dance or burst

Nothing is impossible I have found
For when my chin is on the ground
I pick myself up, dust myself off
Start all over again

Don’t lose your confidence if you slip
Be grateful for a pleasant trip
And pick yourself up, dust yourself off
Start all over again

Work like a soul inspired
Till the battle of the day is won
You may be sick and tired
But you’ll be a man, my son

Will you remember the famous men
Who had to fall to rise again?
So take a deep breath
Pick yourself up, dust yourself off
Start all over again

I’ll get some self assurance
If your endurance is great
I’ll learn by easy stages
If you’re courageous and wait

To feel the strength I want to
I must hang on to your hand
Maybe by the time I’m fifty
I’ll get up and do a nifty

Nothing is impossible I have found
For when my chin is on the ground
I pick myself up, dust myself off
Start all over again

Don’t lose your confidence if you slip
Be grateful for a pleasant trip
And pick yourself up, dust yourself off
Start all over again

Work like a soul inspired
Till the battle of the day is won
You may be sick and tired
But you’ll be a man, my son

Will you remember the famous men
Who had to fall to rise again?
So take a deep breath
Pick yourself up, dust yourself off
Start all over again

Pick Yourself Up Lyrics | MetroLyrics blockquote>

 

Maybe now is a great time to visit a Hypnotherapist to finally get past that thing that has been holding you back or get rid of that terrible Habit/Fear/Phobia.Sometimes a Popular song just becomes a great nugget of truth! I am writing this at the beginning of 2014 and we saw the song used as brilliant counterpoint in Breaking Bad as Walt reasserted himself with some strategic murder and mayhem!

But it is a great tenet of Hypnotherapy and NLP that, as Richard Bandler, co founder of NLP, said: “the Past is over, the Future’s yet to come!” So what do we do with the Present?The Present is here to be enjoyed – again Bandler – “After all how much Pleasure can you stand!”The Past we should learn from: “Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail better.” Samuel BeckettIn other words: “Pick your self up Dust yourself off Start all over again!” – put the past behind you, learn the lessons, leave the bad thoughts and feelings behind, think differently about it – we can’t change what happened but we can change our thinking about it and how we feel.

We can forgive ourselves or others if we can or at least make peace with it – and send back stuff we have been carrying for others too. Otherwise we spend our lives crippled by inaction or pain because that person / those people / stuff we did to others or ourselves continues to haunt and blight us long after the event! You would not let me command you for twenty minutes let alone twenty years. You wouldn’t get into coping habits and endure the misery or guilt with smoking drinking or overeating would you?

We have a great self repair system if we let it! You don’t question how a paper cut heals – you become aware that you are bleeding but it soon stops, forms a clot and pretty soon is repaired. But that’s fantastic if you think about it that your unconscious or subconscious processes just do it.And we believe that the unconscious part of you – which is so good at storing everything that ever happened to you or you saw or read or experienced is a great resource of wisdom and we can add to its store of wisdom so that as it projects possible Futures and we make decisions we might make better decisions using the predictive powers of our imagination rather than being stuck in habitual decisions that we know don’t work well.

We make better decisions, view the past differently see Future events as opportunities to,learn or grow a challenge to be solved rather than a problem we give up on.In other words we pick ourselves up dust ourselves off start all over again! We keep going until we make Life better.Hypnotherapy and NLP are ways to help you achieve that process – they are about giving you more control in your Life and not brainwashing.

Make better informed decisions and be mindful of what there can be in a moment that is pleasurable or useful.Here is to a time where our diaries are full of interesting reading about what we wanted to do and did, of challenges set and met, of new confidence and liberation from fear and habit! And I bet you’ll be singing the song. Take another look at the Lyrics they are a pearl of wisdom. We all know how to dance but to do it with skill takes learning and practice.
