NLP Training & Techniques: How To Use Neuro Linguistic Programming To Change Your Life

neuro linguistic training and techniques

I would like to give you some insights into NLP training & techniques, in particular how to use neuro linguistic programming to change your life.

Founded in the 1970’s by Richard Bandler and John Grinder, NLP is an approach to communication and personal development that explores how we think and feel, and analyzes the internal language patterns that we use to reflect our experiences.

It's called neuro linguistic programming because it combines three words. The word “neuro” represents our nervous system, the word “linguistic” stands for our language, and the word, “programming” represents the actions that we take in order to achieve specific results.

One of the most powerful skills that you can learn in life is the ability to control your emotional responses to people and your environment. Your capacity to effectively do so directly impacts the extent to which you achieve your goals.

Are you ready to master your life? NLP training & techniques will allow you to do so.

The NLP approach was developed out of the modeling of human behaviours. Richard Bandler and John Grinder watched and observed the behaviours of successful psychotherapists, and broke down the language and the processes that they used, in order to create change in people.

The concept of modeling denotes that if someone is getting a result that you desire, you can achieve the same result if you break down and model one’s language patterns, beliefs, and behaviours. That is essentially what you are doing when you are consuming my content; you are modeling the success strategies that I have used in my life and applying it in your own.

I was first introduced to the world of NLP when I was 17 years old. I used to be very shy and I lacked self-esteem and social skills. When I was introduced to the work of Paul McKenna and Tony Robbins, who both utilized NLP practices in their work, my interest in the approach grew even stronger.

NLP principles & techniques have helped get me get into better shape, build multiple businesses, attract an amazing partner, and overcome limiting beliefs and fears, to name a few things.

A few years ago I decided to take things to the next level, and I went through a 9-day NLP practitioner training program, which taught me how to use neuro linguistic programming to change my life. NLP has made a big difference with regards to how I coach my clients, and in how I move throughout my life.

Neuro Linguistic Programming Principles

There are multiple NLP principles and techniques, but I would like to share 3 of them with you:

1. The map is not the territory

As human beings, we don’t respond to reality. Rather, we respond to our internalized map of reality, because we all have different perceptions and meanings of people and the world at large. What you see on the surface isn’t necessarily the reality of the situation.

2. Anchoring

An anchor is an association that elicits a certain emotion within you. We can elicit any emotion we desire by changing how we represent the world. For example, if I wanted you to experience happiness, I could elicit that emotion within you by saying to you, “Do you remember a time in your life when you experienced happiness?”

By asking it, you have to remember this experience, which brings you back to that emotional state. You can then anchor that emotion to anything that you desire. The key to anchoring is making sure that at the peak of your emotional intensity you engage in a gesture, like pumping your fist or clapping your hands.

Why? When you do, that feeling of happiness will get linked to the unique gesture that you engage in. If you engage in anchoring on a consistent basis, it will become programmed into your mind.

3. Reframing

This involves taking the frame and turning it, so that you change the way that you look at it. In the words of Wayne Dyer, “When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”

For example, let’s say that someone yelled at you when you were a child, and from that experience, you associated yelling to meaning you aren’t good enough. That meaning is based on the perception or frame that you are making of that experience.

What would happen if you viewed that experience as a gift? Because that person yelled at you, maybe it forced you to grow, making you less reactive and stronger.

NLP Sensory Modalities

NLP believes that we process information, learn, and experience the world via three distinct sensory modalities, otherwise known as representational systems – visual (see), auditory (hear), kinesthetic (feel). Although we use all of our senses, depending on the circumstances, we may focus on one modality more than the other.

Research has found that there are certain emotions or behaviours that will empower or disempower you, based on an understanding of these sensory modalities.

For example, let’s say you are procrastinating on something in life. If you were to close your eyes and ask yourself, “What is it that I’m procrastinating on?” and make an image of it, there are certain submodalities that will allow you to understand why you are feeling a certain way.

For example, most people that are unmotivated to do something will visualize an image that is small, dim, and still. It is no surprise why someone would feel unmotivated, because they are experiencing something in a disempowering way.

Conversely, if you think about something that inspires and excites you, and you close your eyes, NLP finds that there is a different strategy of submodalities that people use in order to create a visual component. Oftentimes, that image will be close to you – it will be big, bright, colourful, and may even be moving. Just by using this process alone, you can change the way you understand something.

I hope I have been able to shed light on how to use neuro linguistic programming to change your life. Overall, my experience with NLP training & techniques has been powerful. If you want to work with me on a deeper level, I have a few resources that I have created that integrate elements of NLP within them.

In my monthly mentoring program, Life Mastery Accelerator, I dive deep into different areas of life. I also have a course called, Morning Ritual Mastery, which teaches you how to re-condition habitual emotions, feelings, and behaviours into your daily life using powerful NLP techniques & principles.

If you are ready to change the way that you communicate with yourself and others, I encourage you to learn more about NLP training & techniques. You are defined by your actions. Choose wisely.

    Great staff Stafan! I read that in Tony Robbins book, but you reinforced it with your blog. It is good to have it nailed down to a few basics! I actually realized that I am doing some techniques unconsciously, especially the visual pictures.
