Learning How To Surf! Martin Shervington’s Approach To “Life”

How do YOU measure success?

The meaning of success really depends upon the goals and aspirations of an individual. While some focus on the material things in life, others focus on areas that are substantial and more fulfilling such as balance, inner harmony and maintaining a healthy relationship. Often, people will seek new methods for self-improvement but become frustrated because there isn’t an all purpose, quick fix that will work for everyone. This is especially why making an assessment of your own behavior, body language and communication are critical to making the changes you wish to make.

A Different Approach to Life

Learning How To Surf With NLP

(NLP) is an approach to communication, personal development, and psychotherapy. The title refers to a stated connection between the neurological processes (“neuro”), language (“linguistic”), and behavioural patterns that have been learned through experience (“programming”). NLP is capable of providing people with resources that they need to cope with every circumstance. In Martin Shervington’s new book, Life: You Can’t Stop The Waves But You Can Learn How To Surf, you will find a clever approach to bring about change that is actually quite simple. Martin takes the essence of several personal development approaches (including NLP) and turns it into a fun journey of self-discovery. Martin explores different options for improving your situation with money,  relationships and also teaches you to explore the hidden potential of the mind in order to bring about significant, real life changes.


The current economic climate has affected almost everyone in one way or another; whether on a personal, financial or professional level. In order to remain grounded, especially during difficult periods, it is necessary to figure out the core issues which create instability.  Often during these periods, it is common for people to feel overwhelmed, as if they are drowning. Waves can be equated to a series of issues an individual is being bombarded with. Martin’s book, “Life” explores options for helping individuals ride the waves as opposed to being knocked down by them. Martin’s clever NLP techniques, provide the necessary framework to regroup, refocus and become grounded again.
