Welcome to Week 13 of the LCA4R!
We are on our way to greater success, especially as we delve deeper into the truths around our subconscious mind! Check out this week’s Coaching Tools for more on that!
Animated Simple Explanation of the Three Principles by Sydney Banks
Over the next three weeks, we are going to explore a series of videos by Michael Neill, speaker, author, and one of the world’s top coaches.
Michael is a dear friend and former client of Steve Chandler, and we saw his TEDx talk in week 4, “Why Aren’t We Awesomer?”
Now we’re going to get to know him much more as well as begin to understand the Three Principles
The Three Principles were first described by philosopher and author, Sydney (Syd) Banks.
Sydney Banks had a transformational experience, which allowed him to see more clearly the meaning of life, and as a result, he created “The Three Principles’” as a means to explain what he had come to understand.
Basically, The Three Principles are an explanation of our experience as human beings, and they relate to three areas…
The Three Principles are an absolute common denominator of life—everyone experiences life through these three principles—they are universal to humans.
The principle of Thought
This principle is probably the easiest to understand.
We all, as humans, have thought.
Our thinking might be a verbal inner voice or it might be so quick or unconscious that we aren’t aware it is happening.
The principle of thought shows that we are all thinking beings—thought is something that occurs for us all.
The principle of Consciousness
Consciousness points to the fact that we are able to bring our thinking alive.
We experience a rich world through our senses and also through our emotions.
We bring alive the world in order to experience it—it’s a multi-emotional sensory experience.
The principle of Mind
Often we think about the mind as in the brain, but with The Three Principles the Mind refers to the greater presence of spirit.
This might be God, Spirit, the universal mind, life force, etc.
There are many words to describe it, but the Mind is the power behind life itself—it’s what gives us our experience of life.
The Three Principles and Coaching
Three Principles coaches see this type of coaching as slightly different than what might be considered regular coaching in which coaches try to help their clients do things differently in order to experience more success.
The idea with Three Principles coaching is to help clients see the simplicity of how life works because when they can do this they begin to tune in to the great wisdom that is accessible to them.
Rather than encouraging their clients to do more, these coaches help them to trust in their greater wisdom and ultimately become nourished from within.
This is what I understand from their viewpoint, and it seems to align with much of what we do.
Rather than trying to get our clients to do things, we try to help them see the truths about themselves and their life that they weren’t previously aware of.
Much of the coaching we have witnessed so far through this Academy has been influenced by Three Principles Coaching.
The following 2-minute video is incredible.

This was mindblowing for me, and I hope it is for you.
A Month of Transformative Coaching With Michael Neill
Through the following 10 short videos, as you listen to Michael’s ideas on God, consciousness, and especially thought, your own ideas on the nature of reality will begin to shift, as mine have. This is my hope at least.
Rich Litvin: How Do You Up Your Game When You Already Play A Big Game?
In this video, Rich has a conversation with Kelly Ramon.
He begins the call with some inspiring ideas about creating the time and space to take care of ourselves.
Rich says, “If you’re raising the bar on what you’re up to it then you have to be willing to say ‘hell no’ to anything less than what you’re really looking for.”
I freakin’ love that.
Rich Litvin: Fear Is My Compass
This interview of Tony Bonnici will expand your mind in so many ways on what’s possible.
Tony says, “One of the things that drives me the most is when someone tells me I can’t do it,” something to which I can absolutely relate.
I love how Tony had the no-matter-what attitude when it came to becoming a successful coach—Rich as well, of course.
