NLP Can Help You Quit Smoking

Author: Shaun Parker

Since the UK smoking ban in public places started in 2007, smokers have been forced to stand on the streets puffing away while braving the wind and rain. Many are now making the choice to quit the nicotine for good and there are lots of gums, patches and substitute cigarettes to help them do that. But there could be a better way. Consider Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) to help you beat the craving and give up the cigarettes for good.

It’s first important to understand your reasons for wanting to quit. Perhaps the smoking ban has made you reassess you desire for a cigarette – who wants to stand in the freezing cold after all? Maybe people have told you that you constantly smell like an ashtray and you’re starting to feel like an outcast. How do you look? Smoker’s skin is generally in a poorer state than a non-smoker and lines can appear around the mouth from all the thousands of drags on cigarettes – you might be in your thirties but look in your forties. Everyone has a reason to quit so whatever yours is, let NLP help you achieve your goal.

Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) is a technique that involves changing our behaviour and way of thinking to help bring about positive changes in our lives. By associating with certain words, phrases or images, we have consciously and sub-consciously programmed our minds to make us act or think in a particular way. If we can understand the pattern of those verbal and non-verbal forms of communication, we are able to change them and create a new map in our mind to make us act in a different way.

To stop smoking, you need to stop the brain from thinking it needs a cigarette. An NLP method that can help you do this is called the ‘swish pattern’. What triggers your desire for a cigarette? Maybe it’s a stressful situation at work or at home. Do you like having a cigarette after a meal? What about those social occasions down the pub when you’ve got a drink in your hand? These are common triggers and represent in your mind when it’s time to reach for the ciggies. So, before you grab that packet, think about what you’d like to do instead. You might decide to go out for a walk, call up a friend, eat some fruit or read a book. Choose something that you’d enjoy doing and use that as your representation.

Now you need to visualise yourself doing this alternative activity. Think about where you’d go for your walk, what you’ll say to your friend, what piece of fruit you’d like to eat or what book you’re going to read. By doing this, you’re starting to disassociate yourself with the cigarettes and you’re now someone who does something positive instead – a new, better you. When you’ve got that visualisation in your mind, make it a stronger and brighter image than the one of you smoking a cigarette. Make the walk on a sunny day, make your conversation fascinating, make the fruit taste sweet or the book so enthralling you can’t put it down. Whatever your choice of representation, make sure it’s better than the one of you smoking.

You should now have a strong representation to call on so let it start small and allow it to grow in your mind until it completely obscures the old one and any triggers that caused you to reach for the cigarettes. Do this each time you get the urge and slowly you’ll overcome your desire to smoke.

NLP has a number of techniques like this one to improve your life and give you confidence to achieve many other goals.

What Can Nlp Coaching Do for Me?

Author: Bill Thomason

NLP Success Coaching

Your NLP Success Coach doesn’t just give you advice. Expect to be fully heard and learn specific skills you need to make the changes you want to succeed now, don’t you?

Your NLP Coach believes you have all the resources necessary to achieve any outcome in life, and you may simply have those resources organized in a way you have not been getting what you want.

The Most Successful People You Know Have Coaches

NLP Success Coaching incorporates the same technology for profound personal change that sky-rocked best-selling author and motivational guru, Anthony Robbins and others to massive success. Together, personal coaching (life coaching) and business coaching (executive coaching) has become a significant and respectable business over the last few years.

You Can Make the Changes

Other coaches may give you advice, but your NLP Success Coach can help you make the specific changes necessary to achieve excellence. Like a sports coach, your NLP Success Coach will push you out of your comfort zone and support you in your decision to play a game big enough to inspire you to achieve more than you ever thought possible.

How big is the game you are playing?

The quality of your life is directly impacted by the quality of your communication. Your relationships, career, finances, and personal happiness, all depend on your ability to communicate effectively with yourself and others. In the domain of work, do you sometimes think you have communicated effectively, only to find that someone got the wrong message? Do you worry that you are so busy ‘putting out fires’ that you are not effectively moving your business and your career forward? Do you worry about saying and doing the right things to build and maintain relationships with those in authority positions? You are probably good at what you do, but there are also things you cannot see or predict from your current perspective.

A characteristic of highly successful people is that they imagine a desired future and then communicate that vision in a way that enrolls, includes, and empowers other people. Your coach will help you access your own states of excellence so that you easily exercise the energy, intention, confidence, and assertiveness necessary for extraordinary achievement.

What Can NLP Coaching Do For You?

Even Coaches have NLP Coaches! Bill Thomason has helped thousands, like you, to achieve your most highly valued outcomes of personal growth, business success, relationship, spirituality, motivation, team building, career advancement, and more. Bill will gently nudge you toward achieving more than you ever thought possible. Bill can help you decide what it is that you do want and will then work with you to identify and eliminate the barriers that have stopped you in the past from achieving everything you want. And you do want to live your life fully now, don’t you?

What stops you…?

…from achieving what you say you want in life?

Bill says one of his mentors growing up was his Uncle, Darrell Royal. According to Bill, who played football at the University of Texas in the early 1970’s, his Uncle was way ahead of his time as a college football coach. Long before the Inner Game of Tennis and Inner Game of Golf books by Timothy Galwey in the late 1970’s, Bill says he observed that his Uncle treated football players with great respect. After all, they were the best of the best. Derrell Royal didn’t have to yell at or berate his players when they didn’t perform at their capability level. He would ask pointed questions that allowed the player to draw learning from deep inside themselves and from their own unique experience of life.

Bill believes that this Uncle’s understanding of an athlete’s innate ability to excel, is what took the Texas Longhorns to National Championship status. Darrell Royal was named ‘Coach of the Decade,’ for the time period between 1965 and 1975, and was called, ‘the winningest coach’ of his time.

Areas of focus for your NLP Success Coaching session:

– Get a promotion

– Deal with conflict

– Handle loss of job

– Produce results faster

– Influence with integrity

– Acknowledging Successes

– Become an effective leader

– Be a full player on your team

– Change your personal history

– “Wire in” states of excellence

– Set and achieve goals/outcomes

– Deal with upsets/negative feelings

– Attract and maintain a relationship

– Recognize quantum shifts in yourself – Discover Core Values and eliminat values binds

– Design your life vs. being a victim of circumstances

What to Expect?

Expect to experience being fully heard and to learn real-life skills that can help you get out of stuck states, develop effective strategies, and take action toward your achieving your goals. You are always a partner in your own process toward becoming everything you always wanted to be in your life.

Bill believes you have all the resources you need to get anything you want in life. You just may have had them organized in a way that was not successful.

What will happen?

You will:

– Determine what it is you want

– Explore how your life will be different when you have it

– Interrupt you old programming

– Install patterns of personal excellence

Your coaching relationship starts after a brief conversation during which we both decide to work together. Your NLP Coaching Agreement is typically for a two month minimum time period with at least three (3) sessions per month. In each new session we will discuss what happened in the one before, what has transpired between sessions, and outcomes of homework assignments. Homework will be assigned that can be accomplished in simple conversations with people or writing/journaling exercises. Any breakdowns will be “mined” for what can be learned.

Your NLP Success Coach becomes a mentor, a consultant, a counselor, and committed partner in helping you to achieve your goals for personal growth, business success, relationships, spirituality, motivation, or whatever it is that you really want in life. The first step is to determine what it is you want. The second step is to determine the “ecology” of achieving what you say you want.

After that, the coaching schedule will take you through a number of steps to assure that you are well on the path to your desired outcome. You may need to reassess parts of your life, redefine success, set new goals, change old unresourceful habits, and build self-esteem and confidence in yourself.

Flexibility is of primary concern. You will always have permission to express yourself in a safe environment. As things come up, new directions can be evaluated. Your NLP Success Coach will ask you to do more than you thought you could do. You are always a partner in your own process toward becoming everything you always wanted. NLP Success Coaching is about YOU

Become a Master Communicator

Author: Ryan Pearson

One key factor for you to have more happiness in your life is to work to improve your communication skills. By improving your communication skills, you will more effectively receive what you want in life.

The reason why most people have unsatisfactory results in their life, is because they have poor communication skills. People get frustrated when they don’t get what they want,and often times don’t realize it is because they did not communicate clearly, what it is they wanted.

Poor results come from poor communication, not only in personal communication, but also in metaphysical communication. Many times people do not get exactly what they want in life because their communication to the Universe or the Higher Power and to themselves is unclear.

You must be very clear on exactly what it is you want when communicating with another person, The Universe, or yourself.

I know you may be thinking, what do I mean with yourself. A lot of times we are wishy washy with what we want. We tell ourselves “I kind of want this,but I also kind of want that.” or “I guess that would be alright.”. We need to be very specific with ourselves of exactly what it is we want. We cannot express clearly, to someone else, what we want if we are unclear, about what we want, ourselves.

First we will discuss how to communicate with your Higher Power to get what you want, then we will discuss how to communicate with other people. I am using the term “Higher Power” or “Universe” because I do not want to offend any one’s religious beliefs. You can replace the term Higher Power with God or whatever name you believe the creative source to be called. The principles for communication will be the same.

To manifest what you want in life, from a metaphysical standpoint, I would highly encourage you to sit quietly with a pen and paper, and write exactly what it is that you want to create in your life. Write what you want in great detail. The more detailed you are, the better. Remember, this is about being extremely clear about what it is that you want.

After you have written what it is that you want, I would highly suggest that you read what you wrote one to three times a day out loud. This will benefit you in two ways. First, it will help your mind get extremely clear and focused on exactly what you want. Your mind being clear will help you stay focused, take proper action and communicate to others in a more clear, concise and effective manner. The second benefit is, the two most powerful ways to communicate with the Universe, to manifest, is through writing and speaking. Writing creates the most energy, with speaking creating the second most energy. Writing and speaking to the Universe are your two most powerful ways to create what you want.

Now let’s talk about our everyday communication with other people. There are many elements that go into positive effective communication. There is verbal and nonverbal communication.

The words that we use only make up 7% of our communication. The other 93% is voice tone and body language. What that means is, before you have even said a word, you have already said a lot.

It is very important to practice paying attention to your body language and voice tone. It is important to be aware of your voice tone, when you speak. Have you ever had someone ask you for something in a whiny sounding voice; or how about in a very demanding tone of voice? Think back to when someone has approached you with either of these voice tones. Did you really want to give them what they were asking for? Probably not, you were probably pretty turned off by their approach. Focus on having a friendly confident tone.

Body language is huge! So many people are giving the wrong signals and they don’t even realize it. Your words and voice tone may be saying one thing, but your body is saying something very different. The non verbal speaks louder than the verbal, always. The person that you are communicating with will most often not even realize that they are being effected by your body language, however they are, it happens on a subconscious level.

Pay attention to your body language. First of all make sure you are standing up straight with your shoulders back. Good posture communicates confidence. Everyone is attracted to a person who is truly confident. You are much more likely to have someone say yes to you, when you exude self confidence, than if you do not. Another tip is to avoid standing with your arms folded in front of you. Arms folded communicates that you are stand offish and blocking the other person from getting through to you. It also communicates disinterest.

Eye contact is so important, because of so many reasons. I will just cover a few reasons here. For one thing, it shows strong self confidence. It also allows you to have a strong connection with the person you are communicating with. A lot of people do not trust a person that avoids eye contact and building trust is the number one component to effective communication. Eye contact can be hard for some people. If you are someone who has difficulty with maintaining eye contact, begin practicing now. It begins with awareness, then practice, then mastery. One of the most important skills that you can practice and master is maintaining good eye contact.

Next comes the words that we use. Even though words are only 7% of our communication, they are still extremely important and require conscious awareness to use them effectively. There is so much to cover, when it comes to the words we use. I will share some resources for you to study on your own, that will help you with everything that we just covered. First let’s cover what I believe to be one of the most important things to be aware of when it comes to the words you use.

Most people’s main focus when they communicate is on themselves. They use the word “I” over and over again. Understanding that most people’s main interest is themselves can be a very valuable tool for you. One of your greatest tools to be a great communicator is to stop using the word “I”, “Me” and “My” so often and start using the word “You”, “Your” and “Yours” much more often. People love to talk about themselves, and if you let them do it, you will be their most favorite person in the whole world, because most of the people they talk to are talking about themselves most of the time.

Another important thing to realize is that people love the sound of their own name. Use a persons name often during a conversation with them. They will be putty in your hands.

Remember, God gave us two ears and one mouth so talk less and listen more. And really listen, a lot of times when another person is speaking we are caught up in our head thinking about how we are going to respond or just waiting for our turn to speak. Listen with you complete focus and attention on what they are saying then trust that you will be able to respond organically. The best communicators are the best listeners, not the best talkers.

To really master these skills and take your communication to a whole new level, I would highly recommend that you begin to study NLP. NLP stands for Neuro Linguistic Programming. By mastering NLP, you will become a master of influence. NLP will cover the best way to use your words, how to build powerful rapport, how to read other people and so much more.

Here are a couple of tips on how to build powerful rapport. First when talking to someone on the phone or in person, match their speaking style. It is a good idea to match the voice tone and speaking speed of the person that you are talking to.

Another powerful tool is to mirror the body language of the person you are communicating with. Don’t mimic them, just subtly mirror them. When you do this you are sending them a subliminal message that you are just like them.

Remember, no matter where your communication skills currently are, you can always be better. To be a better communicator it just takes self awareness, the desire to be better and practice.

NLP SINGAPORE – What Can You Be If You Have Dyslexia?

Posted by on Aug 20, 2009 in Inspirational Stories, NLP Singapore, Self Improvement | 0 comments

Hi Friends

What can you be if you have Dyslexia?

Recall the few stories that I have shared previously:

STORY 1

If you lack normal ability to learn (read or write), what can you become? I know someone who has dyslexia. Because of his inability to read or write properly, his primary school teacher thought he was lazy and trying to fool around in school. His friends called him ‘idiot’ or ‘stupid’. His poor family background did not helped him either. How would you feel this happen day after day? What has become of him now?

ANSWER: He now runs a Inline Skating Business and an Outdoor Adventure Club Business. He was featured on TV and he married a ex-school teacher.

STORY 2

He grew up poor, and his family moved around a lot while his father looked for work. He, like his mother, suffered from dyslexia and was put into the remedial classes at school. Because of his dyslexia, he did not do well academically, so he focused on athletics and competed in many sports. A knee injury destroyed his hopes of a promising athletic career. Was that the end of him?

ANSWER: He starred in various movies and probably the most unforgettable ones are ‘Top Gun’, ‘Mission Impossible’, ‘War of the World’, etc. He is ……… Tom Cruise.

STORY 3

When he was young, he didn’t breeze through school. School was a torture and nightmare for him. His scores on standardized tests were dismal, pointing to a dismal future. He was embarrassed by his dyslexia and found his education becoming more and more difficult. What can a person who can’t even learn properly have a future?

ANSWER: One of our ‘Roadmap to Success (NLP Singapore)‘ group member Kristiaan Johannes got it correct. He is Sir Richard Branson. Read one of his book called “Screw It Just Do It”. He is also the 1st person in the world to make space travel a reality. Search for his company called ‘Virgin Galactic’.

If a person spent his/her lifetime complaining about what he/she doesn’t have, start thinking about what talents/assets that he/she has for a change and how to make full use of it.

Studies show that NLP skills can be learned by anyone to improve their effectiveness both personally and professionally.

Rapport – NLP Builds Agreement In 5 Steps

By Linda Ferguson

It is remarkable how well-adapted human beings are for agreement. Our neurology has evolved to facilitate connection with other human beings, to allow a group to know more and do more than even its most productive members could accomplish on their own. Different parts of our brain interact to allow us to agree with each other on multiple layers. The different agreements interact so that it becomes easier to agree. NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) and integrated thinking provide models for the next step in the evolution of agreement.

Integrate these five layers of agreement to establish common ground and move forward with any individual or group:

1. Take full advantage of mirrors. Your brain comes equipped with mirror neurons that fire when you watch others. If you see them eat grapes, the neurons fire in the areas that would be activated if you were eating grapes. This effect multiples when someone sees you mirroring him/her. Looking at your smile fires neurons in his/her smile region – where neurons are already active because s/he was smiling first. Of course, the mirror neurons were also active in your smile region when you decided to smile back. You can effectively mirror postures, gestures and expression to create one layer of agreement.

2. Keep the beat. Your brain also comes equipped with centres that monitor dozens of different rhythms and notice when those rhythms are in sync with someone else’s. You can pick up a rhythmic gesture, vocal rhythms, or blinking and breathing patterns. Notice one of these rhythms in someone else, and then send it back with your own breathing, blinking or movements. The synchronization will register in both your brains, creating another layer of agreement.

3. Offer back exactly the words that have been given to you. Agreements are strongest when they are precise mirrors: don’t rephrase in your own words. Just repeat back part of what someone has said to you exactly as s/he said it. In the new context, you might be giving the phrase a different meaning or turning a statement into a question. That’s less important than having someone register that you have heard precisely what s/he said. Being heard is almost irresistible: it creates agreement about communicating even when the communication is about controversy.

4. Create shared language patterns. The easiest form is to ask a series of questions that elicit the same answer – either yes or no will do, as long as the same answer applies to each question in the series. If someone says no to you once, that person is disagreeing. If the same person says “no” five times in a row, s/he is agreeing to complete the pattern that you are suggesting with your questions. S/he can agree by saying “yes” or agree to disagree by saying “no” another time.

5. Just say “yes.” It’s infectious and it signals agreement even when your “yes” is actually a logical “no.” For instance, you might say, “Yes, coffee is delicious and I never drink it this late in the day.” “Yes, it’s true that I disagree,” invites more conversation than “No, I don’t agree.” Although the logic says “no,” the brain also processes the “yes” as a sign of another level of agreement. “Yes” establishes that you are mapping out common ground, not moving on to greener pastures.

It is well known that people are motivated less by logic than by the integration of logic with other factors. Our reasons for making choices and taking action are always a mix of many different processes working together. Building agreement on layers of interaction creates common ground and shared momentum. It’s a great basis from which to identify common reasons and shared interests. And it feels great to be in agreement – on lots of levels.
