You may bave heard the buzz recently about a system called NLP or Neuro Linguistic Programming which can help people in many different ways. It’s a method for reprogramming your mind, and it can help you overcome many problems, sell or persuade people or improve your relationships. NLP is a great way to help you understand the people around you, and even yourself. You can teach yourself this method, or learn from others. Now let’s look at some ways that neurolinguistic programming can be beneficial for you.
Anyone that does NLP will use what is called “anchoring” to help them. What you do, in your mind, is “anchor” two different images or ideas. If you remember basic psychology, Pavlov caused his dogs to salivate at the sound of the bell using the same method. He got the dogs to anchor the sound of the bell with food. All of us anchor lots of different things. This philosophy or psychology applies to humans too. The phobias that we have, and our negative emotions, are tied directly to what we anchor in our minds. If, for example, you have a fear of trees because as a child you fell out of one. You could visualize pleasant experiences involving trees to replace the painful one. After you have learned NLP to some degree, you can use anchoring to your benefit. Modeling is one of the best ways to fully utilize Neuro Linguistic Programming. NLP can help you change your life in dramatic ways using this strategy. Have you ever had a role model before? This is the same idea behind this technique. Even if you don’t know the person you are using as a role model (they could be dead!), the strategy works either way. You simply emulate what these other people do, modeling their thoughts and actions as closely as you can. This will help you improve any area of your life. All you have to do is pretend that you are them, and start acting like them everyday. Like all NLP techniques, this takes some practice, but it can be very effective, whether you want to become better at sales, public speaking or at some sport.
Have you ever heard of the term covert hypnosis? This is one aspect of Neuro Linguistic Programming. When you use this type of hypnosis, people do things for you, you will not know that you have done it. It is good to be familiar with these techniques, yet there is an ethical issue for some people. The reason for this is that advertisers, politicians and others use these tactics on us every day. There are things called embedded commands. These are placed within sentences which will cause the reader to do something very specific. So when you see an advertisement like “Get this while supplies last!” it is an example of this technique. Even though these are commands, people will have no idea that they are being told to do anything.
Neuro Linguistic Programming can be applied when selling things, trying to make things better things in your life and many other things. It is put to use by psychologists, sales trainers and people who would like to alleviate the dreadful things in their lives. You should look into this matter, as this article has only offered us limited room to talk about the different ways that you can utilize NLP. You’ll see that nearly everyone has room for improvement in their life by applying the laws of Neuro Linguistic Programming.
