Does NLP work?
So, this event came up about NLP, and I am not sure whether to go or not. I am sure some guys here have tried NLP before, so I would appreciate your opinions on the matter. I barlely know anything about NLP, but I am curious. I just want to know whether to follow up on it or to find something else more worthwhile to be curious about.
Here is the event description:
How much does it cost?
35 pounds. So about 55$
The whole thing might just be an upsell.
Yeah you are right, I didnt think of that! Even Tony Robbins did upselling when I went to one of his certified seminars here in London. I will just pass it then and read a book on it instead :P.
Well NLP is the shit, but I'd call up and ask.
Oh wow. Okay this answers changes things then. I will defintiely hit them up and get more info.
Well NLP is the shit, but I'd call up and ask.
Yeah NLP is very useful in my opinion.
I'm working on my practicioner's certificate right now, and it's gonna cost 1100$ in total. I'm a student so this is shit loads of money for me right now... however I decided I wanna do this and later on go for NLP coach, hopefully I become one around same time that I graduate college.
Few weeks ago I attended a seminar on public speaking and met an NLP coach who used to be Anthony Robbins personal assistant for a couple of years. I asked him for some pointers on how to make it big in NLP scene and he gave me some tips and told me to email him if I need anything else.
We also did this cool exercise, where we summoned lots of positive feelings and anchored them.
Which reminds me.. I really need to start writing articles for this forum.. I'm drowning in college work at the moment.
It would be really cool if you can write up that exercise about positive emotions anchoring leadscout. And Manhoe, we want those book titles! :P
Books by Richard Bandler and John Grinder.
Leadscout it would be interesting if you gave me a breakdown of how the training with me has similarities and differences to NLP and such.
Can anyone explain NLP to me in the simplest terms possible? I've been reading about it and watching some videos and I can't seem to understand what It is exactly! Is it a form of hypnosis?
Achoring is finding a word/phrase/memory that is associated with a specific emotion correct? Like a hypnotist making a client think of a "happy place".
bump niggas somebody explain dis shit to me
Grenade I don't really remember how it went down, at least not to the point of explaining it to actually be applicable. The guy is also trained in hypnosis and he basically lead us and got us to anchor an emotional state that is useful for public speaking. One extremely odd thing happened during the exercise... tears started running down my cheeks... i was like wft LOL.
Meow Well it does have certain elements of hypnosis, as a matter of fact it has elements of many things.
Imagine a situation where you type in a code to your computer and it returns a certain result. The computer comes with instructions and you know exactly how to use it to get what you want.
Our minds on the other hand don't come with a manual. So when we are born we don't really know how to manage our mind but rather we learn by trial and error.
NLP enables us to use certain techniques to manage how our emotions, thought processes and beliefs work, and also how to change our behaviour and habits and to have massive motivation
Actually I noticed RSD was influenced heavily by the NLP teachings..
Imagine a college student who has an exam in 2 weeks. Now strangely enough the exam being "far" in the future he has almost zero motivation to study, however a day or two before the exam the student has massive motivation to get shit done. The question is WHY cant he be motivated 2 weeks prior to the exam. This is something that NLP studies and teaches, so basically you can achieve great results by sticking to NLP.
When it comes to anchoring it's more like you associate certain feeling to sound/image/gesture/position in a room (etc).
I'm sure you've already experienced a moment when you used to listen to a certain song all the time, then after not listening to it for a few years you hear it again on the radio and you start to experience the same emotions that you experienced years ago. For example, about 2 years ago during summer I went to seaside with my brother and we had an amazing time, and the radio kept on playing some hit song of that year. Even though the song wasn't anything special, if I hear it now I'm gonna experience the same emotions because an anchor has been established between me and the song. So basically the song is a trigger for that anchor.
A public speaker who is familiar with NLP might step on one side of the stage when he talks about something negative, and when he wants to talk about something positive, he won't remain in the same location as he did for the negative. rather he will pick a different spot. (this is anchoring a location)
The anchoring drill we did at the seminar was basically us squeezing our fists multiple times at the peak of positive emotions, thus anchoring them. So now all I gotta do is make a fist and I'm ready for public speaking :)
If you got any more questions feel free to hit me up :)
Thanks leadscout I understand it now. I didn't think it was something you could use on yourself, but it seems like it can be extremely effective!
