Video Transcription for how to connect with yourself by transforming your self-concept
This is Nate Mohr with self-concept.com It’s so nice to have everybody here today. I’m interviewing a fellow member of the self-concept group coaching Denny Ransom.
There’s so much going on in the world today. There’s so much wisdom in our group of people that we can connect with. A lot of people are stuck at home alone making it a good time to really get to know yourself. I remember first hearing your story about how you became very connected with yourself. Can we start at the beginning of how you first started learning the self-concept model and where things were at for you and how things evolved?
My very first experience connecting with NLP was way back in the days, I bought Tony Robbins book right out of high school and it was the personal and unlimited power and then immediately followed up by saving my money as a kid at high school and buying the tape set, I’m gonna date myself here, but I had this giant box of cassette tapes in cases, right that was his whole thing.
And I struggled with it. I felt like the one thing that I connected with internally was this idea of being able to manage and connect with your own neurology. Even though I struggled with the tapes, you didn’t get anything beyond just feeling motivated. Feeling motivated was great but I didn’t learn anything that I could take with me and build. I didn’t leave with a skill set. I later got into philosophy, meditation, and different religions looking for the answer.
Regarding connecting with yourself, what did you uncover when exploring meditation, philosophy, and different religions?
Connecting with yourself and the internal boundary exercise, can we talk about that?
Transforming your self-concept to connect with yourself and the internal boundaries exercise, how do they work together?
Regarding the connection with myself, obviously my ability to connect with people and to have a greater sense of community, but also to I mean, the connection with, with my own self with my values, you know, I feel like my compass, like my, I’m aware of my compass all the time now, ya know, and so so that definitely, I think that even on a larger scale of just this work, in general, my life, I mean, clearly I’m on some sort of an entirely different type of trajectory now than I was a year ago. Well, enormously different.
The things that I’m thinking about and the things that I’m trying to accomplish in my inner game for the last six months, it’s just astounding. It’s like your hair growing, you know, a little bit at a time day by day and you don’t notice the difference. But when you look back at a picture, you know, when you had short hair and I’m a hippie now I look at how they get this way. And when I look back to just six months ago, um, that’s how it feels.
My daily routines to connect with myself have changed, my habits have changed. The things I put my energy into a change and everything that’s a little change seem to be compounding in a way that that that is driving my life in a way in a direction. That makes me feel really good. You know, so
If someone wanted to use this work to connect with themself, what would you tell them?
First off, be gentle with yourself. There are a lot of nuances to this and for me, I’m a newbie, right? I mean, there are so many people in the group who have accomplished way more than I have. And I’ve been at it for just a bit now. And there are still areas that I’m stuck with. There are still areas that give me problems. But if you commit to doing the work, you have so many resources here. So many people are happy to connect with you and help.
As long as you don’t lust too hard after, what other people’s experiences are. We each our own unique self within our own unique set of needs. And if you do the work to connect with that, you will get to what you really need the most out of the work. And it might look differently for you than it did for other people. I came into this I had this idea that I was going to be like Neo in the matrix and stole something in the next day a miracle would happen.
Peter had that kind of experience. transforming productivity. I gotta be honest. I haven’t had any like behavioral things were like the next day I’m just on fire with this or that. Sure, but I have definitely gotten what I needed. In so many ways, so. So be open-minded about what it is that that you might get and how it might show up for you. But if you trust the process and stick to it, good things are gonna happen. I promise you, good things will happen.
