Principles of Success in NLP

By Rintu Basu

NLP is a fantastic technology which is all about expanding your life by giving you more choices, allowing you to learn quicker and become the person that you want to be. NLP is not magic however. There are certain principles that if you followed you would benefit from using NLP techniques. If, whenever you are using NLP you use the below principles then you cannot go far wrong.

1st Principle of Success

What is your outcome? Essentially why are you using the NLP technique? What do you want to achieve? It is essential that you have a very clear vision of what you want to achieve and why you are doing what you are doing. If you have only half formed hazy ideas then it’s certain that you will lack focus or worse still get all sorts of results that you were not actually looking for.

2nd Principle of Success

This one seems self evident. Take action. As mentioned before NLP is a fantastic technology but its not magic – its not going to aid you in achievement if you don’t take action. If you do take action then NLP will speed up your development and cut the time it would usually take.

3rd Principle of Success

You need to know whether or not your action is taking you closer to what you want. This is connected to the first principle – if you don’t know what you want then you will have no idea of whether or not you have got it. Take action then evaluate whether or not it is taking you in the direction that you want to go.

4th Principle of Success

If your actions and behaviour are not getting you any closer to what you want then you need to be flexible enough to change either your behaviour or the outcomes you are looking for.

5th Principle of Success

You can have a very clear idea of what you want, be taking action to get what you want and have the ability to evaluate whether or not your actions are taking you closer to what you want but if you don’t feel good about it then the chances are you will not reach your target. You need to ensure that you are operating from a state of resourcefulness when achieving your goals

If you want an analogy to remember the above principles by then consider a guided missile. First of all the missile will have been programmed with a target. It will then be launched and sent on its way towards the target. As it goes towards the target its internal computer will be constantly evaluating its height, speed and direction ensuring that it is heading in the right direction. Now the missile is a machine granted but nothing is going to stop it from achieving its target.

Sit down now and think of a goal – it doesn’t have to be big – it can be something very simple – one of those every day things that you never get round to doing. Go through the above principles.

These are fundamental success principles and on any good NLP practitioner course you could seriously ramp up your skill levels in any of these areas. For example:

Imagine you had a goal setting formula that was so powerful that you just had to think of a result that you wanted and your unconscious mind was already solidly working to get you there creating behaviours, habits and beliefs that support your goal.

How about you had a process that allowed you to model and learn skills in half the time it normally took. If your goals involve new learning or skills development this could expand your results very quickly.

There is also a lot to say about having emotional control to feel motivated whatever the situation, stay focused whatever the distractions and feel good even if the results you are getting are less than ideal.

Any good NLP course will give you tools for all of these areas. If you had this skill set imagine what happens to your success formula when you put it into place.

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

10 NLP Patterns For Educators

10 NLP Patterns For Educators

“Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) offers many simple, yet sophisticated ideas for accelerating and enhancing education.” The below article highlights 10 NLP patterns sure to enhance the students and teachers experience in the classroom.

——

10 NLP Patterns For Educators

By Craig Pinegar

Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP) is as famous for its effective use in personal coaching and therapeutic applications as it is for its colorful origins. Yet despite the great potential of NLP’s insights to enhance or even transform education, formal inroads into schools, colleges and universities remain elusive. One reason, perhaps, is that NLP training is a competitive industry in its own right, with a slight new-age flavor and a price point that makes NLP prohibitive for school systems to adopt widely. Another reason may be that among the factions within the NLP business, consistency of approach and quality is lacking, leaving schools to consult with NLP trainers on an ad hoc basis, if at all.

To help bridge the divide between NLP proponents and educators, I offer this article, and herein would like to discuss NLP not as a business, but as phenomenology, or what happens subjectively inside the learning mind, hoping the NLP ideas here will find their way into more and more classrooms.

In formal education as in other applications, NLP leverages the real-time subjective experiences of students and teachers, to help students tailor their own learning strategies based on their internal maps of the world. Basic NLP earning strategies can be taught to teachers and students alike, presupposing that students will then take more responsibility and credit for their own success. These NLP strategies start with the end in mind, enable students to alter their own mental and physiological states, map new learning to their own internal maps or change their internal maps to accommodate the new learning, try alternate ways of viewing or expressing new learning, and future-test new learning for ecology.

I will highlight 10 foundational NLP patterns with brief examples of their possible application in school, and trust your imagination to implement these ideas effectively in the classroom.

1. Teach Well-formed Outcomes

They say that a problem well-defined, is half-solved. NLP teaches that effective learning happens best when you know the outcome you want. Once an outcome is defined, vivid visualizing enhances the outcome, and prepares the students’ minds to do well on tests. In solving complex problems or on projects, “chunking” is an NLP term used to teach breaking steps toward the outcome into meaningful and manageable sizes. Obstacles are dealt with in simulation mode, and then the student is better prepared to navigate around or through those obstacles when they arise in real life.

2. Teach Pacing, Matching and Leading

NLP teaches that in a state of rapport, any learning is possible. Students learn best when they feel esteem and respect for their teacher, and absence of fear from their peers. Rapport is facilitated when the teacher not only matches the physiology and language of the students, but paces or aligns the material to their mental maps of the world. Once students feel they operate from the same map, the teacher can lead them into new learning territory. Additionally, listening and rapport-building are valuable life skills to be formally taught to students.

3. Teach State Calibration

NLP advocates using sensory acuity to observe the person in front of you for clues about their current state. Teachers who learn to read body language have at their disposal a real-time meter which tells them whether their teaching is getting through. Signals are given off via postures, gestures, breathing and eye movement patterns, and skin tones and color, which do not hint at whether the teaching is momentarily “hot or cold”. Adjust accordingly. Students who learn body language can also gain emotional intelligence, and navigate school, work and home life more freely.

4. Teach Future Pacing and Checking Ecology

Future pacing and ecology checks are ways to test and debug mental strategies in our heads before going into real life with them. If school is a kind of laboratory, then it is the perfect venue for this kind of testing. Students and teachers can gauge the impact of every decision, action, project and learning on their futures, their families and communities, and the environment. Checking ecology is highly subjective, but exercises critical mental muscle, and is less slippery values-based approaches.

5. Teach Flexibility of Response

Rigid teaching styles only reach a portion of their students, part of the time. Behavioral calisthenics allow the teacher to draw on a fuller range of emotional states, verbal delivery patterns, to reach more students more of the time. Students can also learn that if something is not working, try something else. Flexibility that is openly rewarded teaches that there is no such thing as failure… only feedback. The queen rules the chessboard, because she has the most available moves.

6. Teach State Elicitation

In NLP, a state involves thoughts, feelings and physiology, and covers the spectrum from deep relaxation to high excitement. A great teacher needs to be able to “light up” the neurology, in order to associate the right state with the new learning. Memorable learning does not happen through intellectual discussions, but through emotionalized discussions, such as fear, anger, disgust, confusion, shock, peace, joy, forgiveness, focus, fun, going for it. Emotions are energy in motion, and should not be suppressed, but channeled in productive and ecological ways.

7. Teach State Induction

I am not suggesting to teach or use hypnosis here, as it is illegal in many states to induce trance in school, and deep trance is overshooting the mark. However, it is well-documented that relaxed, alert “alpha” states are most conducive to absorbing new material. A teacher could unobtrusively teach students how to take a deep breath, and focus or defocus their eyes a bit before taking in new information. At other times, a teacher can teach students how to access “beta” states, when high alertness is required to execute tasks rapidly (this is the state induced by most video games). Effectively teaching students to alter their states willingly can preempt the need for stimulant drugs. Humor is a very powerful tool for inducing a learning state. We always remember the things that gave us a good laugh!

8. Teach Breaking State

When moving from topic to topic, or between repetitions of a new mental sequence, this NLP pattern teaches the importance of “clearing the screen”. Breaking state allows for students to clearly identify the beginning and ending of a mental sequence, and also to generalize the new mental strategy across contexts. Hey! Do you smell popcorn?

9. Teach Anchoring

This NLP pattern installs a link between positive emotions and positive behaviors or strategies at the peak of a positive emotional state. Using sensory acuity, teachers can be alert to those peaks as they happen, and reinforce them with “yes!”, “you got it!”, “boom!”, “pow!” or some other kind of distinct cue. Soon, the emotion and the behaviors become integrated. Students can also be taught that negative anchors can be undone and replaced with positive anchors. Knowing this gives great strategies for school, home, work and life.

10. Teach Accessing Positive Intent

Disagreement and disappointment are a part of life, but this NLP pattern presupposes that we all do things for some positive reason. Teachers and students who frame disagreement and disappointment in a positive light can avoid being critical, while they keep the dialogue moving ahead. This patterns involves a line of questioning that will ask for the positive intent, and then look for a better way to achieve it.

I don’t know how or when the reader will embrace these ideas or how or when individual teachers will incorporate these ideas in their own classrooms, but I believe that these 10 NLP patterns merit consideration in every case. It is up to the reader to decide now, and apply these patterns meaningfully and successfully.

Craig Pinegar a coach and teacher, a supply chain systems architect, a husband, and a father of four, using the internet and local study groups as venues for helping people get introduced to NLP, and to make it their own, through practicing NLP patterns in the real world, with real people, in real time, and for free.

As in sports and music, NLP is an art form, and while it may matter who you study with, but the practice and well you perform are what really matter. NLP is done from the heart, not the head. To do NLP well, you need to be in the zone, and I can help you get there.

Together, we can use NLP tools to change the world from the inside out, and bottom up.

NLP Success Story – Cayden Chang

Posted by on Jul 23, 2009 in NLP Master Practitioner, NLP Singapore, NLP Success & Life Tips | 1 comment

I’d like to share with you my own personal success story with NLP (Neuro-linguistic Programming).

It’s good to wonder and it actually works because I have personally transformed myself from an academic underachiever to a top corporate high flyer to a business owner (doing what I love) with a national award called Lifelong Learner Award 2008 awarded to me by the Singapore Minister of Manpower (Mr Gan Kim Yong) and the award was authorized by WDA (Singapore Workforce Development Agency), SPRING Singapore, NTUC (National Trade Union Congress) and Mediacorp Singapore (see picture below).

I was also being featured on TODAY newspaper on 25th Nov 2008 (see below) as well as …….

….Singapore’s Radio Station 938 Live (see below):

I was a video game addict when I was in Junior College. I was so addicted to it that it costs me my future. I did so bad during my ‘A’ Levels examination that I have to re-sit for 3 times. I was branded an academic failure and my self-esteem was extremely low thinking that it’s got to do with my low IQ.

But my life changed when I first met with the revolutionary success technology called Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP) when I was reading some books on the topic. By applying what I have learnt, I got into National University of Singapore (NUS). During that era, only 1 out of 10 Singaporeans can get into a local university. To think that life would be better after I got into NUS, it was not. It was a real test of my commitment and perseverance. Without any money to study, I had to work and study at the same time. With classes starting as early as 9am, it ended at 5pm on most days. I had to rush to my workplace by 7pm and work till 10:30pm daily. By the time I got home, it was already 11:30pm. There was hardly any time for my studies, rest, leisure or friends. Even worse, my father succumbed to heart failure a week before my 3rd year examination. It was so sudden and painful.

With the help from NLP, I was able to stay motivated, positive and managed my emotions while continuing to cope with the loss of my father, study and work at the same time. I subsequently graduated with 3 degrees – a Bachelor of Science (Merit) in Biology, a Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Zoology and a Master of Science (e-Business) from the National University of Singapore.

My mum’s key wish was to see me make her proud by being the 1st university graduate in the family. I did just that when I had my Bachelor of Science degree. She was so proud of me that on our way back after graduation in a taxi, she was holding my mortar cap tightly in her arms with a gentle and warm smile on her face. But she did not get to see my second and degree graduation as she passed away later a year later with lung cancer. With the loss of my mum, I was able to manage my emotions, stay positive in life using the power of NLP.

Having been working in the corporate world for many years, I was consistently ranked in the top 5% where I manage millions of dollars of operation and more than two thousand over staffs. I have achieved this feat because I have used my knowledge of NLP and model after successful corporate high flyers.

I have also co-founded an award-winning educational board game (MOE Innergy award 2003) which was featured in Channel 8, Channel U, Kids Central and LianHeZaoBao. With a strong passion about learning and inspiring other to learn, I gave up my high paying job and set up my current training company. Using the knowledge that I have acquired, I created a success framework, combined it with the cutting edge of NLP and founded Mind Kinesis Management International LLP offering a series of NLP-based life-skill training programmes for adults and children.

I believe in living life above the line and my purpose in life is “To motivate and empower people to reach their destiny”. Have you found yours?

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