In these stay @home times we face many challenges; motivation, being a major one on them. Our work, family and social lives are lived out daily under one roof. Living in the current world where variety is scarce, is both overwhelming and monotonous, so motivational boosts become essential for everyday life.
A fundamental and often misunderstood format in NLP is metaphors. Before the NLP critics ‘jump on their high horses’ and say metaphors are not unique to NLP, we all know that, so ‘get a life’.
New Code NLP was co –created by John Grinder and Carmen Bostic St Clair in the late 80s. New Code NLP - formalised its forerunner ‘NLP New Coding’, a term John used to describe his re-coding parts of classic NLP and the term carried over into the new patterns he was exploring and developing at the time which are now a part of New Code NLP.
The notion of a ‘part’ in the Six Step Reframe was dropped in NLP in the early to mid 90s and has not appeared since. In Whispering in the Wind (2002) Grinder and Bostic outlined what was then the latest version of the 6 Six Step Reframe, it has since been modified. It’s progress in NLP that I like, for the life of me I do not understand the intention of NLP Trainers who publish a pattern as it was documented in 1979 without the progression that has occurred since. Perhaps you can helpme here?

Hello everyone! I know , I know I have been neglecting everyone of late after a blogging hiatus, however today I just know I’ll redeem myself with this blog.
For me my personal favourite model of NLP that has impacted me the most personally and professionally is the Meta model. Now to explain the Meta Model in one short blog post would not do it justice. Rigorous self application of the Meta Model leads to enhanced clarity in communication free from ambiguity and more choice in in the contexts where the violation occurred.
The ability to effectively and elegantly sell and present your ideas, product and services is the difference that makes the difference in catapulting a person or business to success. Have you ever bought something without realising you were actually sold the item or service in a highly elegant manner? Have you ever seen a presenter who was so engaging, you were entranced by their message and hung on to every word they said? Would you like to be able to sell and influence in such a manner that is not perceived as selling? Would you like to know how to psychologically influence an audience? If so, this email will certainly be of interest to you.
One of my favourite things about NLP is that it is very much a doing sport. We seek to steer clear at Practitioner and Master Practitioner level of unnecessary theory and over analysis of labels and NLP epistemology. (We do this at NLP Trainers Training) The intention behind this is when you can truly do NLP and successfully apply NLP to others and yourself you are then in a congruent position to firstly understand the theoretical concepts behind NLP and secondly pass them on to others in a Training setting. I class myself as good driver (those close to me may disagree) to successfully drive a car I do not need to know how every mechanism inside of the car works, how to build a car or the historical developments that occurred from the very first car that was built . I simply just need to know how to drive it; I guess I’m the equivalent of Practitioner level in car driving. If I was a formula one racing driver it would be a completely different story, it’s vital for an elite driver to be able to calibrate and understand the tiniest changes that occur during a grand prix to ensure high performance is continual throughout the race. To do this they need an advanced level of practical and theoretical understanding of the car in order to ensure it feels right as they travel at death defying speeds whilst the car is running as quick as it possibly can, this is a continual process over many years of practice. To continue my analogy you could class them at Trainer level. The same is relevant for many contexts ranging from NLP, golf, sales, swimming to name just a few. Learning theory before practical experience can have disastrous consequences such as the eccentric academic who read a book on swimming and on his first ever attempt to actually swim jumped of Brighton pier and promptly drowned, the sea takes no prisoners. This is why we stress the importance of coming to one of our courses and learning how to DO NLP so you can model, learn and make mis-takes in a safe environment before going out there and using this stuff where the results do matter and experience and options are key. Books won’t prepare you for this before practical experience. Get your experience first and then learn the theory, this way the theory makes sense as you have the associations to the patterning being presented based on experiences using it with others and personal experiences as well. The theory will then enhance your NLP practitioner skills and ready you for training others equipped with the WHY so that you can fully satisfy the conscious minds in your training room, but actually do this effectively so your students can benefit from your experience as a highly effective change agent, model you and then do this themselves with others successfully.
I started an article yesterday with it being marathon season at the moment on NLP and Hypnosis tips for running. Due to yesterdays terrible bomb attack on marathon runners and spectators at the world famous Boston marathon out of respect I will not complete this article today. My thoughts are with the injured, the deceased and the families affected by this horrendous tragedy.
