One dictionary definition is that values are the principles and beliefs which a person or group think are important. Most often values are unconscious, and have been inherited from our parents or culture, or decided upon at a young age and never re-evaluated, so we can end up with values that are not congruent with who we really are.
This time of year is sometimes called Imbolc. This ‘season’ has implications to an NLP aware practitioner or any person that can begin to see life symbolically or through the eyes of metaphor or analogy.
So, What (or who) Is The Best NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) Training School? Of course, the question and answer is dependant on what you expect and desire from the course. To find out who is the best NLP training company, you have to look at a few criteria.
I’ve been learning, applying and training NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) since 1994 in life, business and golf. Having studied a few other things along the way too, I’ve got a pretty good idea now about what NLP is, what it’s not, how it works and most importantly how useful it is. I got into studying NLP through my frustration at studying my degree in psychology. My experience of psychology was that it was very interested in why we did what we did and then testing various hypotheses to form various generalisations
We found that most managers and employees of businesses, the people that implement your plans, don’t believe they are successful! They are often questioning themselves to see if they are doing their job right, resulting in them working extremely hard, leaving work stressed and feeling undervalued.
When you ask someone a question, you may have noticed their eyes move, using a skill trained in a nlp practitioner course we can determine which representational system a person is accessing by the way they move their eyes. In addition, people may move their bodies to indicate in which quadrant of their brain they are searching to locate information.
There is no doubt that one of the most fascinating and at the same time controversial aspects of what Richard Bandler and John Grinder modeled in the 1970s, was eye accessing queues. Eye Patterns.
Have you ever learned something (like NLP) and thought to yourself “Wow this stuff is sooo great! I wish I’d learned it years ago!” or “Why don’t they teach this stuff at school?!” Well the great news is finally, they do!
Alan Carr took a course by one of our NLP trainers a few years ago; he stood up and announced that he wanted to be a comedian. Years later we all know he still wants this ambition! OK, cheap shot as he’s not here to answer. Yet whatever you think about him, he’s got to where he wanted to be – through NLP to comedy! Can learning how to do stand-up comedy change the way you think or improve your life? Taking a stand up comedy class used to mean learning how to write material, hold the microphone, or talk to the audience. Kyle Cease’s enthusiasm for neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), says there is a new school of thought on teaching stand-up comedy.
The purpose of the NLP techniques that we teach are to give a practitioner a back-drop to how to play with the inner world. The techniques are simply examples or ways of playing with the internal representations that give meaning to our realities.
Of course we have a huge variety of NLP techniques in the family of NLP, yet, as I’ve mentioned in previous blogs, the techniques are the least important part of how NLP really works
How can you think of things that no-one else thinks of? The answer is by deliberately reframing or taking a different approach to the issue from everyone else. There are dominant ideas in every field. The brilliant thinker purposefully challenges those dominant ideas in order to think with innovation.
Firstly, think of your goals in your sport. Picture how important it is for you to achieve what you want. Get into about how much you want to make the starting line-up or get the call up to your chosen team. It’s a good tool using NLP in sports to have a motivating reason for anything you do, yet when you have touched on the emotion of what you want, be prepared to let the goals go!
The element of fear of losing can be a motivating factor. Lynford Christie, one of England’s best athletes, used fear to drive him on. Yet far too many athletes just worry too much about failure, are afraid to make mistakes and fail. They mistakenly believe that the worst thing that could ever happen to them is to lose or mess up.
You can always do more than you think. You can always do better than your best. Limits and handicaps are placed in your life for you to overcome them. They are not put there as a reason to whine. You can always do more than you think. You can always do better than your best. Limits and handicaps are placed in your life for you to overcome them. They are not put there as a reason to whine.
Using NLP, you will be able to stretch your newly learned mastery of language and communication into all aspects of your life, improving your whole way of being, as well as changing the lives of those around you for the better.
I asked a good friend recently what he wanted to know about NLP. He replied “How does NLP work with effective self change?”
So this post is my answer to how NLP works with effective self-change, or self transformation. When you think of developmental stages in your life, there will always be patterns of change. So what is self-change and how come it doesn’t just happen automatically? Through the eyes of an NLP Practitioner, you’ll see that all change is unconscious.
I imagine that’s a surprise for some of you that we have written an article on NLP and planetary systems! In the climate we are experiencing today with…
Some people may assume that NLP has a lot to do with positive thinking, affirmations and being ‘happy’. In fact, NLP has a lot to say about positive thinking and being, yet the story is more involved than that….
