How would you like to learn to minimize problems out of existence? You can! Here’s an easy and powerful NLP technique to “explain to the brain” the things you want and the things you don’t want. Not that! This!
I was working with a lady in my office one day recently, and in the course of our work, she complained to me: “You’re minimizing my problem!” Yes! Yes, I am. And so should you. That’s the whole point of this work: to minimize problem(s) out of existence. And yes, we can.
Would you like to minimize your problems to the point that they don’t exist? Here’s an NLP technique to do just that. Literally. Read more…
A problem is only a problem if we define it as such in our own mind and life. Take “stuck in traffic” for an example. Some people caught in Seattle traffic listen to music and smile and dream happy thoughts. Others smack the wheel in rage and hurl obscenities and skyrocket their blood pressure. It’s the same situation, the response is different.
One man’s misery is another man’s joy. My sister works in the field of accounting, and she loves it. It’s her passion. I did that work for awhile, and let me tell you, it was not my passion. It was mind dead boredom. I know a man who had his leg blown off in the war. He’s not vegetating in a wheelchair like others in his situation, he’s out and about helping design his own artificial running leg. He’s an athlete. And he runs.
Things stop us from achieving our goals only if we let them. The right mind set and the right set of driving emotions moves us forward. Here’s the great and relatively unknown aspect of all this. We control that mind set and set of driving emotions.
That control panel is called NLP. Neuro Linguistic Programming. We can control how we feel, think, and act. We can program (instruct) our minds to respond how it’s useful and appropriate to respond to move us forward towards our goals. Any goals. That’s NLP.
This control panel in our minds is sensory operated. It’s visual. It’s sound-based. It’s feeling based. And these things, pictures, sounds and feelings, lead us into behaviors and beliefs. People think of beliefs as solid things, tangible, like a rock. They’re not. They’re more fluid, like a flowing river. And we can change the direction of them at will. That’s NLP. It’s effective communication with our unconscious minds, that part of us which defines and determines our reality
This programming (instruct the mind) technique I’m sharing today is visual. I call it: Not that, This! It’s formal name is “The Visual Swish.” In this technique, we take the unconscious mind by the hand and show it clearly what we want. And what we don’t want.
When the unconscious mind understands what we want, it will take us there. A simple still image can convey an enormous amount of complex information and meaning. “A picture is worth a thousand words,” as they say. Looking at a picture, we absorb incredibly large amounts of data quickly.
Again, here’s the article:
Not that feeling, this one. Not that belief, this one. Not that habit, this one. Not that body, this one.
Play with this visual technique. It’s a five minute process which could change your thinking and your actions, your outlook and your life.
I hope you enjoy your “Not That, This!” outcomes. There’s so much more to this control panel in our minds.
