Alex Bering, Ask The Y Guy

Alex Bering is a trainer in Neuro Linguistic Programming, Time Line Therapy ®, Emotional Freedom Techniques, and speaks to corporations about Personal Peak Performance, Overcoming Limiting Beliefs, Communication and Human Behavior. Alex began his career asking the question, “Why?” He devoted his life and career learning from many different experts and teaching the power of asking “why.” His never-ending “why’s” weren’t meant to exasperate people; it was to answer the unanswerable. After becoming one of the top producers in the insurance industry generating over $2 million in revenue, only to hit, “rock bottom,” he began to see overall personal success and failure through, “his own eyes.” Sooner or later, we stop asking why and in order to sustain peak performance year-in and year-out, your entire life (health, relationships, children, finances, goals) must be in balance.

Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) explores the relationship between, how we think (Neuro), how we communicate (Linguistic), and our habits/patterns of behavior & emotion (Programming). By studying and learning NLP, Alex became more aware of his impact on others, how he managed and influenced his own behavior, let alone others. For optimal results and how to improve, as well as, enhance your own communication, you must understand how you delete, distort and generalize information first.

Whether you are looking to understand yourself or others, Alex has researched and discovered the meaning of life and how to live the best life possible. If you are searching for Demonstrations, Examples, Facts, Exhibits, Analogies, Testimonials, or Statistics, please call us because, evidence DEFEATS doubt!

Note:  There are upcoming free NLP seminars on Sept., 6th & 7th; Sept. 13th & 14th, Sept. 27th & 28th, Oct. 3rd & 4th, at The Empowerment Factory, 999 Main St., Unit #707, Pawtucket, Rhode Island 02860.  For further details or to register, please contact Alex at Alex.Bering@yahoo.com or at 508-269-1236.   You can also learn more about NLP and Alex at:  http://asktheyguy.com/
