NLP 101 – WHO MADE NLP POPULAR?

Posted by on May 24, 2011 in NLP 101 | 0 comments

Dear Friends

Some of you may heard this name before – Anthony Robbins or Tony Robbins. Who is this guy anyway?

This man started his carreer as a janitor, yes, a janitor (ie. cleaner), who eventually made millions through the power of NLP. Robbins began his career promoting seminars for Jim Rohn, a business philosopher, who passed away on 5 Dec 2009. According to Robbins, Jim Rohn taught him that “happiness and success in life are not the result of what we have, but rather of how we live. What we do with the things we have makes the biggest difference in the quality of life.”

Watch Part 1 of his Biography here:

Later part of his years, Robbins began teaching NLP after training with co-founder of NLP, Dr John Grinder. In 1983, Robbins learned firewalk from Tolly Burkan and began to incorporate it into his seminars. Robbins also teaches Neuro-Associative Conditioning (NAC) though in my opinion, it’s just a renaming of NLP.

My question for you is this – If you are to talk to any janitor that is working within your vicinity and you ask him whether will he become a millionaire in the future, what will he say? He will probably think that you are crazy. But if you could turn back time and ask Anthony Robbins the same question, what will he say? Do you see what thoughts that go inside the mind changes your future entirely?

Ask yourself this question when you look at the mirror every single day ‘ “Who do you see yourself as?”. Whatever your answser is, you are right. You simply becomes you who think you are. If you think that you are not good enough, you really are because you will never do things that will make you good enough simply because you do not think that day will come. If you think that you are confident, you really are, because you will do things that will further enhance this confidence simply because you strongly believe that was true. How we look at ourselves and our thoughts manifest into our behaviour which 100% determines our FUTURE!

NLP 101 – HOW NLP WAS BORN

Posted by on May 16, 2011 in NLP 101 | 0 comments

Dear Friends

Many thought that NLP was a new tool. In fact, it started way back in 1970s and has evolved and time tested across across 40 years. Some pointers about the history of NLP are as follows:
• NLP began in early 1970s, when Richard Bandler (a psychology student I University of California Santa Cruz) was transcribing a taped therapy session by Gestalt Therapist Fritz Perls
• Bandler found certain patterns of Perls language which increase its acceptance by clients
• Bandler brought his findings to John Grinder (a linguist) and they produced “Meta Model”
• Bandler & Grinder subsequently modelled after 3 extraordinary psychotherapist: Fritz Perls (Psychotherapist), Virginia Satir (Family Therapist), Dr Milton Erickson (Hypnotherapist) and uncovered the patterns of human excellence
• Went on to model after achievers in other fields (business, sports, education, health, etc) and identify their common structure – NLP was born
• Both of their initial discoveries were recorded in 4 books between 1975 and 1977. The books were called “The Structure of Magic I & II”, “Patterns I & II” and 2 books on Erickson’s hypnotherapy work
• NLP was then evolved into 2 complementary directions: 1) As a process to discover the patterns of excellence in any field, 2) As the effective ways of thinking and communicating used by outstanding individuals

Bandler and Grinder reviewed many hours of audio and video of the top 3 psychotherapists spent months imitating how they worked with clients, in order to replicate or ‘model’ the communication patterns which supposedly made these individuals more successful than their peers. While the style and approach of these psychotherapists were apparently different, Bandler and Grinder believed that all experts in human communication (including Perls, Satir and Erickson) have patterns in common that could be learnt by others. They claimed that there were a few common traits expert communicators – whether top therapists, top executives or top salespeople – all seemed to share.

NLP 101 – WHAT IS NLP …….. REALLY

Posted by on May 13, 2011 in NLP 101 | 0 comments

Dear Friends

NLP stands for Neuro-Linguistic Programming, in which I would call it a psychology of excellence and a technology of achievement. It was founded by both Richard Bandler and linguist, DrJohn Grinder, in the early 1970s. It is a powerful tool that encompasses the 3 most influential components involved in producing human experience: neurology (ie. Neuro) , language (ie. Linguistic) and programming. The neurological system regulates how our bodies function, our mind and how we think and behave which stems from our 5 senses. Language in this case means verbal and other non-verbal communication systems through which our perceptions are coded, ordered and given meaning. It also meant how we use such languages to order our thoughts and to communicate with others. Our programming determines how we organized our ideas and actions to achieve our results and the kinds of models of the world we create. Neuro-Linguistic Programming describes the fundamental dynamics between mind (neuro) and language (linguistic) and how their interplay effects our body and behavior (programming), and eventually results.

In simpler terms, NLP is how you can use the language of the mind, to create any desired emotions (eg. confidence, courage, powerful, etc.) that you want and subsequently produce the results that you want. NLP is not only about competence and excellence, it is also about wisdom and vision.

For the techie people who wants a more in-depth definition, listen to the co-founders themselves by watching the following video below:

NLP SINGAPORE – WHAT IS WORSE THAN DEATH?

Posted by on May 5, 2011 in Inspirational Stories | 2 comments

Dear Friends

Whenever I conduct NLP Training, there will always be a small group of who will asked me about how I felt and how I managed when I was diagnosed with cancer previously. Well, it wasn’t easy. Not only for me but my love ones too. In my opinion, is there anything more frightening than death? Yes, it’s not watching your love ones die, but watching your love ones live ……. but they don’t remember you. As I am typing this, there will  be some people out there, somewhere out there, despite having financial, physical and mental challenges, you are and still taking care of your love ones …. who suffered from dementia.

This Korean Movie titled ‘A Moment To Remember’ reminded me how to treasure the love ones around us when I still remember them:

Do you know what the leading actress meant by ‘heaven’ when she asked ‘Is this heaven?’
