When I started out with NLP, my first experiences were motivated by an interest in communication, so I focused most on those aspects of my development. From a scientific perspective, I was thoroughly intrigued by the NLP methodology.
I had some skills and very few specific techniques, so I got very good at asking questions and exploring through feedback. In many cases this is the best way to learn something, as the distinctions formed through experience are the most persistent and personal type of learning. In this way, NLP becomes part of experience and part of life.
Since NLP is a way of working and a way of looking at the world, a good way to begin is to start to notice many of the things that NLP training aims to make us more aware of.
Above all, approach this in a playful way. Have fun exploring the new world this opens out.
One thing about memory is that we tend to recall things when we’re in the same state in which we learned them.
So if you’re putting yourself under a bit of pressure, then stop…
Take a deep breath.
Take your mind back to the ‘where and when’ of that learning
and re-connect with it.
Playfulness and fun are two of the states we use a lot in the process of teaching NLP. This is one of the many reasons we do that.
