NLP, Mastery and Success

What could your life be like if someone gave you a compass that always points the way to success?

success_compass

There are ways of thinking about your aims, goals and desires that are different – and far more powerful – than those you currently use. Ways that put more of your life under your control, making it easier to get what you want.

successThere is more to it than determination. There are activities that successful people definitely don’t do, because they know those actions lead only to failure. They know what the actions of success are – and how to repeat those time and again.

Successful people ask better questions about the things they want, because they know how to build a blueprint for success. In fact, if you can’t get the answers, even your most strenuous efforts will fall far short of the results you truly deserve.

When you make a study of success and compare the highest achievers, patterns start to emerge. Patterns in their thinking, behaviour and outlook on life. Patterns that are often profoundly different from the norm.

These people became special by their own efforts. Successful people don’t work harder than others, though they often work hard to get what they want. They’re not necessarily any more intelligent than the average person. Most were not born into wealth or privilege either. What they do have is a set of skills that many people do not even know exists.

In this course, you can learn those skills, modelled from some of the world’s most successful people.

Learn how to:

  • build a blueprint for success with 10 simple questions
  • stay totally focused throughout your master plan
  • use any results – even failure – as material for creating success
  • master your inner success system and make it work for you – even while you sleep!
  • keep your life balanced throughout the process.

Through a series of simple exercises, you will learn how to think, act and react in ways that will move you towards the things you want from life.

These new skills will be your compass, always keeping you on track, so you can have more of the things you want with less of the time and effort.

As you move through the course, you will put it into action in your life and begin to make success part of who you are.

NLP – Daily Practice and Integration

Too busy to practice your NLP? Build your skills in only 5 minutes each day with this new training program.

You’ve completed your NLP Practitioner training and want to make the most of your new learning.

What do you do next?

Some people take more training or join a local NLP practice group. Some people do nothing.

In my experience, those who make the most of their NLP do so by making it part of their everyday life.

  • I don’t mean doing therapy or changework with friends and family.
  • Nor do I mean becoming an ‘NLP bore’ by talking about NLP constantly.
  • I don’t mean changing your job to ‘live the dream’ of being an NLPer.

nlp_integration
Those who have the greatest and most enduring success integrate their NLP learning seamlessly into a variety of normal contexts, improving their daily lives in the process.

That’s why I designed this 8-week integration program – to guide you through that process.

How does it work?

Each week, starting on Day 1, you will receive a concise audio lesson of approximately five minutes duration. The lessons are brief and to the point, so you can easily find time to listen to them before the week’s tasks begin.

Every other day you will receive a brief email outlining that day’s task or exercise. Each task or exercise will help to integrate that week’s learning material into your natural awareness, language and behaviour.

Creative Solutions – NLP and Creativity

Looking for solutions? Expand your creative skills on this 4 week course and save time, money and effort in the process

Creativity is the most prized ability in business today because new ideas can save you time, money and effort.

creativeDespite its great value, few people know how to become more creative, because many people think that creativity is an inborn skill. They couldn’t be more wrong.

Creativity is something we can all have, whether we realise it or not. It is a skill, an attitude and an outlook – all of which you can learn, perfect and train. For example, why do artistic people go to art college? They’re learning skills that will help them to better express their creativity.

There are two parts of the creative skill:

  • coming up with interesting ideas, new perspectives, or solutions to problems.
  • expressing those ideas in a meaningful and accessible way.

This training course focuses on the first part of creativity, which is arguably the more valuable one. Ask a painter how to paint or ask a writer how to craft a story and they will have plenty of practical advice to share. However, ask them – or any creative person – how they come up with their ideas and they will struggle to give you a practical answer.

They’re much more likely to tell you that ideas ‘just come to them’ or seem to ‘pop into their heads’. And that doesn’t give you anything you can use to duplicate the process.

Fortunately, there are ways of accessing that information. There is a structure to creativity, drawn from careful study of creative thinkers – a highly practical way of becoming more creative.

In this course, you will learn several simple ways to enhance your personal creativity.

Learn practical ways to:

  • Tap into your deepest creative resources
  • Synthesize new ideas and applications from existing ones
  • Use your resources to improve on past solutions
  • Take ideas from other areas and creatively “re-purpose” them

Through a series of simple exercises, you will learn four fundamental processes and begin to make creativity a part of who you are.

NLP Language – Meta Model

Struggling to cut to the heart of the problem? You can take control now by asking the right questions.

meta-model

The meta-model is a way you can identify patterns in language that show you how a person thinks in a fundamental way.

It reveals how they personally see the world – and how they see you and others too. Think about the potential – what could you achieve with that knowledge?

The meta model will show you their assumptions, the limits of their thinking and what they deeply believe is true.

This means you can begin to ask questions which cut right to the heart of the issue – pointed, intelligent and transformative questions.

Assumptions

When you make assumptions, sometimes you will get it wrong. The consequences can be small or they can be serious. Some misunderstandings can end a relationship or cost a business millions. All because you were wrong about what you thought you understood. With these tools, you will strip away misunderstanding and avoid potential disaster.

This level of the meta-model recovers hidden information and combats vagueness.

Limited Thinking

Everyone has gaps in their understanding. With the meta-model, you will find those gaps and see the edges of their worldview. Through a series of simple questions, you can open up their world and help them to do the impossible. The result is transformative and can create a better future for all.

Underlying Beliefs

Everyone has deeply buried ideas about how things are – how the world works, what people are like and what you need to know to make it to the top. At this level of awareness, you will hear the clues in their language and in your own. Here is where you free your mind from the past and open up to a wealth of possibilities in your future. The result is a revolution for the mind.

Take control

With the meta-model, you can slice through bluster and vagueness, eliminate objections and take control of the conversation. You’ll be able to identify faulty thinking patterns and intervene powerfully. You’ll be able to map the thinking patterns of excellence and make them your own.

Learn faster, understand more deeply, ask transformative questions and create breakthrough.

How does it work?

You will learn five patterns each week for the first three weeks as you descend deeper into the model. I demonstrate every pattern with examples across the breadth of normal life, so you can apply the meta-model everywhere. Every situation becomes an opportunity to practice and develop your mastery of these skills. In the fourth and final part, you learn how to combine everything you’ve learned and apply it as a single powerful system.

Whether your needs are in the field of business, coaching, therapeutics, sales, learning or every part of life, the course contains everything you need to make these skills your own. This course is an opportunity to gain an edge – a significant advantage over your competitors in every area of life.

You can enjoy all of this for a single course fee of only £75.

True Motivation : Personalised Propulsion Systems

Recently, I gave a presentation on NLP and Motivation,so I’d like to share one of the processes I designed and included there.

Now, motivation is not a new concept in the field of personal development, nor in NLP. In fact, one of the ‘metaprograms’ we present in our NLP Practitioner trainings is ‘motivation direction’ – are we more motivated by things we move towards (e.g. rewards) or those we move away from (e.g. consequences)?

While you may be motivated more strongly by one or the other, we are in some measure, motivated by both forces. We move away from what we don’t want and towards what we do want – if everything is connected up and balanced correctly.

If we only move away from what we don’t want – it’s possible to end up anywhere else. If we only move towards what we want, there’s the possibility that we might flit from one atractive proposition to the next with little measure of consequences.

So both forces work together in what NLPers call a ‘propulsion system’. We move towards good feelings and away from bad ones at the same time.

The problem is that it doesn’t always work as a sustained motivation. So I considered it further and it occurred to me to ask – which good feelings specifically? And which bad feelings?

Usually, a generic ‘positive’ feeling and a generic ‘negative’ feeling are described and if those aren’t enough, the solution given is to increase the intensity of the feelings.

That fix can work for a little while, then it tends to run out of steam. However, we all have ways of motivating ourselves already. Otherwise we’d never even get out of bed in the morning.

So, which specific states motivate you?

What do you move towards and what do you move away from?

It’s important that you know what states already work for you. Then we can put them together and feed in all of the things we want to accomplish.

Let me give you an example. I tend to move away from boredom and a state of curiosity moves me forward. Your motivators will likely be different from mine and you’ll need to work them out for the next part of the process.

The next step is to ask – what do those two states have in common? What connects them together?

It’s good to do this because now is the time to start thinking of all of these elements as a complete system. What is that system about?

In the example I gave, boredom and curiosity are connected by learning for me. So my personal propulsion system in that context is a machine designed for learning. What is the propelling force that connects your motivating elements and moves you forward? It could be exploration, experimentation, adventure, passion or any one of a great variety of things.

Here’s how to put that machine together:

  1. Determine your specific Towards and Away-From states within a certain context.
  2. Ask yourself – what do those two states have in common? In your perception, what concept unites them?
  3. Close your eyes and get a sense of the Towards state. This could be a picture, feeling, sound or just an idea. Position it in front of you.
  4. Get a sense of the Away-From state. This can be a picture, feeling, sound or just an idea. Position it behind you
  5. Become aware of how those two states are connected and get a sense of the forward movement that comes with the connection.
  6. Feed in some images, sounds, words or feelings related to something you would like to be more motivated about. Notice how the system moves them forward.

Now you can feed anything you want to into your personalised propulsion system as content.

Or put your propelling force onto your timeline. I personally find it easier to put ‘learning’ into the areas where I need motivation rather than building the propulsion system fresh each time.

And if you work with propulsion systems this way, they stay in balance. There’s no need for readjustment or cranking up states. It works because it’s been tailor made with your inner world in mind.

Now all you have to do is to decide what you want, check your outcome and feed it into the machine. Your Personal Propulsion System will focus you and supply momentum. Full steam ahead!
