Nearing the completing of my NLP course and my last assignment was on stress management and how some people are naturally calm and this rubs off on those around them. I was able to give a positive example by discussing my driving tuition experience with local Driving and Karate Instructor Nigel Smart. http://www.nigelsmart.co.uk
Nigel is an extremely calm individual, very patient has a fab karma and is definitely a type B person. Whilst he takes his work very seriously he is in full control, so does not get stressed about his work. I know he takes great pride in what he does using emotional intelligence alongside skillful, safe and careful driving to enable his pupils to achieve a pass. Indeed he gets us to chant a positive mantra about our driving and passing the tests -none of this has been wasted on me.
I suspect the karate is a positive contributing factor to his personal harmony, bringing an excellent balance and providing regular exercise in comparison to the driving/sitting role. This is clearly an individual that has worked out the secret to success, enjoying what he does and leads a far happier life than a lot of people I encounter. I have really enjoyed my time driving under his tuition and cannot recommend his driving tuition enough… whatever your age is. Actually I feel his approach is more akin to coaching and gets my vote.
