First, let me help you break misconceptions about NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming – sounds daunting doesn’t it?). NLP is not an art of hypnotizing people nor is it a form of magic supernaturally powered. Although sometimes admittedly it does look like a bag of magic tricks, the same way you would be amazed by that red-nosed clown or top hat magician at your birthday party when you were 10 years old- it isn’t what it looks like.
Let me tell you where it comes from in a nutshell…
Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) is a breakthrough modeling technology discovered by Richard Bandler and John Grinder in the mid 70’s in California. They embarked on this journey of discovery by modeling the behavior of 3 geniuses Dr Milton Erickson, father of modern hypnotherapy; Fritz Perls, creator of Gestalt therapy; and Virginia Satir, the mother of modern-day family therapy. They were curious as to why some patients in therapy were immediately cured and others took more time, even years. Their studies led to a breakthrough discovery about our human psychology and they’ve created a set of practices and concepts to find the difference that makes the difference from a genius performer and that of an average performer in a transferable and learnable code that can then be replicated by anyone to produce the same results.
Simply it’s a deeper understanding of a puzzle that is us; human beings and the most complicated organic mechanism- the human brain. All of us biologically function the same way and are given the same capability of learning since birth. The same capability for excellence of anyone great that you can think of. As baffling as reprogramming our minds to overcome our allergies, in each of us lies all the resources we need to achieve our dreams in life and to overcome anything that hinders us from growth.
What does this mean for us?
There is truth in the saying “You are destined for accomplishments, engineered for success and endowed with the seeds of greatness.- Zig Ziglar” We believe that we are given this privilege and are capable to reach our full potentials
– Maximum Potential Mastery.
After becoming a certified Master Practitioner and Trainer of NLP, I found that NLP techniques can greatly improve our personal and professional mastery thus leading to potential mastery.
Personal mastery is managing our state of mind. It is greatly influenced by our psychological state and physical state.
Professional mastery is to live productive lives and articulate our ideas, thus enabling us to persuade others.
Mastery of both personal and professional lives make us reach our maximum potential and leads to success and a meaningful and aligned life.’
