NLP and Business Success

In our daily race, many behave like hamsters on a wheel. Doing, doing, doing. Churning, churning, churning. Missing, missing, missing – the angels that enter our lives.

Here is a true story narrated in the first person but using fictitious names. Thanks to the self-made financially free person who shared this story.

Hamster

***

Many years ago, I was dragging myself home, my mind filled with dozens of worries. My ventures had failed and we were down to the last dollar…literally!

I bumped into a friend, Heng, an old classmate whom I had not seen since schooldays.

I remembered him as the boy with the scaly skin (Ichthyosis Vulgaris) whom everyone shunned. It did not bother me and we became fast friends but lost touch after he moved (back then, no telephones or social media).

Heng greeted me with a wide smile and we even hugged. We were both in a rush and promised to keep in touch – but never did.

I still recall that fleeting encounter, his brimming smile and the joy in his eyes. Perhaps he was happy to see me but I think it was more to do with Heng – always a happy boy, now a happy man.

I could not fathom then but felt a great unburdening of my heart.

When I reached home, my wife remarked that I looked cheerful – something she had not seen on my face since our troubles started.

There was something about that encounter with Heng and I felt an intense drive and found ways to overcome my problems. It was tough going but I celebrated every small success. Whereas previously, I saw the cups as half empty, now I saw only half full cups.

Whenever I felt myself sinking into despair, I would recollect that pleasant encounter and snap out. It made me feel better and I never looked back. I did this repeatedly. Negative thoughts – snap! I felt more positive and kept going. In time, I managed to rebuild my business.

Years later, in a pensive moment, the thought occurred – an angel had touched me – in the form of my friend. Thanks to Heng, I made it.

***

The narrator refers to his friend, Heng, as an angel.

Sometimes all we need is a trigger to bring about a certain change in mind-set. What was once relegated to the realms of angels and magic is now fully explained by science.

When the narrator said, he would “snap” out of his negative thoughts and emotions, he was actually resorting to a NLP technique.

For the uninitiated, NLP or Neuro-linguistic Programming is a powerful and secret “mental technique” used by the world’s top leaders in the arts, in the professions and by police agencies, among others.

Trained practitioners of NLP can employ this technique at will. Many of the world leaders – great persuaders – use NLP techniques and so can you.

This mental technique has the ability to pull you out of despair and set you on a positive “can do” path that lead you to become a top performer in your area of endeavour.

Mind over Matter

Posted by on Jun 28, 2016 in NLP 101, NLP Introduction, NLP Singapore, NLP Success & Life Tips, NLP Techniques, NLP Training, Self Improvement | 0 comments

Athletes train to keep their bodies in prime condition.

Your mental faculties – the brain – also needs to be constantly exercised and honed to optimum performance.

***

<< The biggest differentiator between mediocre and meteoric performance is the ability to work productively for long stretches of time >>

Quite often, and increasingly now, all of us have to work long hours. This could be due to heavy workload, to meet project time targets and a dozen other reasons. Of course, between these spurts of intense activity, one needs to take time out and recharge.

But you need to prepare for the sprints.

You need to intentionally develop your mental faculties and stamina. Only then can you effectively compete with those who have systematically built up their endurance over decades in the business world. Only then can you compete with the best and best them.

How do you build up mental faculties? How do you psyche yourself, discard negative baggage that holds you back and realise your full potential?

It’s simpler than what most people reckon.

NLP SINGAPORE – 5 WAYS TO STAY MOTIVATED

Posted by on Apr 9, 2012 in NLP Techniques | 0 comments

Hi Friends

Do you know how some people are frequently happy, positive and happy in their lives whereas the others wanted to but do not know how?

Here are some simple NLP tips that you can get started. By the way, it will only WORKS if you DO IT.

1. Recall Past Events/Occasions that make you feel ‘X’

If let’s say you wake up one morning and you drag yourself to school or to work but you wanted to feel happy instead. The steps are:

(i) think of a past event/occasions that you feel happy

(ii) Relive that event as though it’s happening right now, seeing and hearing the details you can observe

(iii) Enjoy the feelings arising as long as you can

Note: Choose those events that can give you a high intensity of positive feelings. For example, on a scale of 1 to 10 where 10 is the most intense, you want to choose those events that have the scale of 8 and above.

2. Surround yourself with Positive Triggers

Ask yourself this. Do you have a favourite piece of music or song? Play it in your mind right now. How do you feel. Good?

The trick to keep yourself in a positive state any time you want is to surround with triggers that make you feel good. In NLP terms, such triggers are called Anchors. Some examples:

1) Pictures (Visual Anchor) – keep some pictures in your phone, place on your working desk, etc. where you feel good looking at them. It can be your love ones, your past achievements, etc.

2) Song/Music (Auditory Anchors) – play these in your portable players when you need them. Keep a list of songs/music that put you in a positive state.

3) Smell (Olfactory Anchors) – some people loves to smell perfume, shampoo, coffee, tea, etc. and if they don’t smell them early in the morning, somehow they felt something is not right.

3. Let go of Negative Events

If you encounter event that turns you off or upsets you, how can you feel good again?

Here are some steps:

(i) Recall this event

(ii) Place this event on a movie screen and imagine that you are watching this event with you acting in the movie

(iii) Imagine making the movie screen smaller by shifting it further and further away such that it becomes so small that you can hardly see. You will be pleasantly surprised that you don’t feel anything negative at all.

4. Think of your past Achievements

Most of us are may be too critical of ourselves such that we only remembered what are the things that we did not do well rather than things that we have done well.

Think of 10 successes that you have achieved in the past that you are very proud of yourself. Have such events recorded in photos and videos and put them in places where you can see/hear them any time when you need them.

5. Focus on things that you have

How you feel is all directly related to what you focus on in your mind. Let me give you an example: 1) List down 5 things that you do NOT have in your life right now, 2) List down 5 things that you have right now and you feel totally gratified that you have them. Which ones make you feel good? Things that you don’t have or things that you DO have?

The Secrets to Transforming your Life are not rocket-science.

Whatever thoughts that you have will lead to how you feel inside. How you feel inside will lead to how you behave and every behaviour and interaction with the environment and the people around you will determine your life and the cycle repeats itself.

Start with a positive thought each day by asking yourself what are you grateful for today!

NLP SINGAPORE – HOW TO SEE OPPORTUNITIES

Posted by on May 22, 2010 in NLP Success & Life Tips, NLP Techniques, Self Improvement | 0 comments

Hi Friends

It’s Saturday and it’s a great start to a weekend and a coming new week.
It was a hectic week for me as usual with the launch of a new programme that focus on generating passive income leveraging on Value Investing, a methodology created by the richest investor on the planet by the name of Warren Buffet.

The Economic Crisis for Singapore is over while some European countries start to have financial challenges. Why am I sharing with you this? I want to share how you can ‘start to see’ plenty of opportunities.

One key factor that helps you or blinds you from seeing opportunities is your ‘Attitude’. Some people called in ‘Mindset’. In NLP terms, we call it ‘Filters’. Imagine 2 people are presented with an event, these 2 people will response differently depending on their filters. The negative one will find the event a problem & an extra piece of work. The positive one will perceive it as an opportunity. Let me give you a real-life example. When the economic crisis started in late 2008, many people find it extremely challenging especially there were plenty of news about restructuring or retrenchment. Yes, it’s true. It’s also true that during this period of time, it’s a once-in-life-time opportunity where you can become richer. Why? Because, it is also during the same period where great investors like Warren Buffet enters the stock market and purchase lots and lots of good stocks at a huge discounted price when the stock market plunge.

So while you are reading this, you may be thinking how can you change your attitude/mindset such that you can start seeing opportunities. Let me share with you how you can consciously carry out the following:
1) Work on your thoughts
When you caught yourself having negative thoughts, ask ‘what positive lessons can I learn from this event?’
2) Change your speech pattern
When you use negative words (eg. Complain, gossip, etc.). Make a conscious effort to stop and use positive words.
3) Modify behaviour
When you notice yourself exhibiting negative behaviour, do a physical change by thinking of something positive, good or something that you are happy about. Actively visualise yourself performing that positive behaviour.

It takes time to change your mindset if it’s deeply ingrained. However, it CAN be done. The moment you start seeing opportunities, that’s when fortunes and other results start to flow it.

Let me share with you how you can change your filters by attending our Free NLP Workshop NOW!

NLP SINGAPORE – Fear Into Power

Posted by on Dec 16, 2009 in NLP Techniques | 0 comments

Hi Friends

On my way back home yesterday evening, I saw a Malay lady sitting on a wheel chair. She was without legs and 2 forearms. Someone was pushing her on her wheelchair. For a moment, I realised that I was fortunate or rather most of us were fortunate to have all of our limbs intact including our 5 senses. She reminded me of a man without arms and legs by the name of Nick Vuijicic. Many people would have known Nick but I would like to share with you another man without arms and legs by the name of Kyle Maynard.

So who is this man? This man is a fighter, I mean it literally. He trains hard to be a fighter and he has partcipated in Mixed Martial Arts Competition fighting opponents who are physically abled. Watch the video here:

First Person: Congenital Amputee Ready for MMA

My question to you is this. If you are in a ring facing a trained fighter or just facing a huge crowd of strangers in which you are suppoosed to speak, how would you feel? Most people would either be anxious or fearful. So how do you overcome this anxiety/fear and be confident instead?

In order for you to be confident, you MUST first get this right – you MUST be FULLY PREPARED whether is it in a fight or simply public speaking. If you are not prepared about your speech or presentation or anything, don’t even talk about NLP. NLP comes after your 100% preparation.

Once done, the next tip is to think of your role model that is appropriate for the task that you are working with. For eg. if you are doing public speaking, think of your role model who can speak extremely well. After this, fully ASSOCIATE yourself into this person imagining that you are “taking over” his body such that you stand like this person, talk like this person and carry the confidence like this person.

You will be surprised how powerful this simple NLP technique can be. This will be one tool where you can transform Fear into Power!

Let me share with you how by attending our Free NLP Workshop NOW!

NLP SINGAPORE – NLP Communication Model : Our Brain Relies On Visual Memories

Posted by on Nov 17, 2009 in NLP Singapore, NLP Techniques | 0 comments

NLP Communication Model

Our Brain Relies On Visual Memories.

Thanks to one of our NLP graduates, who has asked me a couple of questions about the human brain. Let me share with you a DVD titled “Brain Story” by BBC if you want to go in depth about how our brain works without taking a degree course in Biology or Neuro-science. Watch this for a start.

If your listen attentively to the narration, it describes the NLP Communication Model. In the video, it states that “our visual brain is a 2-way street”. In other words, whatever we perceived in our head not only comes from what we see but also what we expect to see (retrieving information from our stored memory). This is described in our NLP Communication Model where the IR (Internal Representation) of any event is created from what we visually see as well as our past memories (which is one of our filters that distort, delete and generalise).

Imagine if you have visual memories that are negative that generate fear, procrastination, anxiety, limiting beliefs, etc., then what you perceived will be negative. If you have visual memories that are positive that generates confidence, drive and empowerment, then what you perceived will be positive. Let me ask you this question – if you feel negativity in your life, does this help you to get the results that you want? Of course NOT. As such, to generate the success in wealth, relationship, personal development and health, you MUST know how to change your perception of the world such that you can change them. So how do you do that?

Our brain is really amazing. “Change your mind and you can change your world!”
