Have you ever wondered how NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming, AKA: The Lost User Manual fo the Mind) came about?
You've probably heard the phrase, "NLP was not invented, but rather modeled."
"What does that even mean?"Read the rest of this entry »
I received this question via email today from one of our clients: "If the subconscious mind cannot reason, question, or reject the command you give it through hypnosis, why can't we suggest to it through hypnosis that we make $1,000,000 in 12 months and then expect the subconscious mind to show me the ways? It seems that my subconscious mind is always sabotaging my goals, even when I use hypnosis to suggest the outcome."
This is a fantastic question, and I'm so happy this client asked it, because I believe the answer can help so many people.
Let's first start by clearing up a myth:Read the rest of this entry »
You may have never heard of Susan Oliver's name, but it's almost a certainty you would recognize her face. Susan had over 120 television and film credits to her name. A well known actress in the 50s and 60s, she appeared in shows such as the Andy Griffith show, The Man from U.N.C.L.E., Gomer Pyle: USMC, Gunsmoke, Magnum PI, and Star Trek. She directed shows such as M*A*S*H and Trapper John MD.
On February 3rd, 1959 — the same day Buddy Holly, Richie Valens, and the Big Bopper died in a tiny Beechcraft V-35 Bonanza — Susan was on a commercial Pan Am flight that plummeted out of control from 35,000 feet to 6,000 feet before regaining control. This incident left her with a deep-seated phobia and she refused to go near an airplane. She turned down any role that required her to fly for over a year.
She reached out to a hypnotherapist, desperate for help.Read the rest of this entry »
As an NLP trainer, people always ask me, “How can I make money with NLP?”
I remember starting out in this field. As an owner of my own software company, I was already versed in business and marketing, so I was able to break six-figures my first year in NLP. One of the biggest ways I help struggling NLP Practitioners, NLP Master Practitioners and NLP Trainers these days is by teaching them business skills to help them thrive with their NLP skills...Read the rest of this entry »
Some of the most common questions we get at Transform Destiny as an NLP institute include, "What is the typical salary of an NLP Practitioner?" or "how much does an NLP coach earn?"
This is a great question, as NLP trainings are an investment and most people want to know how quickly they can make it back, and how well they will do financially as an NLP Practitioner.
So let's explore these questions...Read the rest of this entry »
I often get people who ask me the question, "What do I do when NLP doesn't work?"
This seems to me like a trick question, because I have never found a time when NLP doesn't work, as long as the client wants the result and doesn't give up on the process.
But there are often times when an NLP technique (or two or four) doesn't work. Sometimes, it even seems as if your entire NLP strategy doesn't work.
So what do you do? Unfortunately, many Practitioners just give up. Here are four strategies that will help you always get the result with NLP.Read the rest of this entry »
Your sales results depend largely on your ability to build personal and emotional value for your prospects.
I have made countless purchases based purely on emotional appeal, while very few of my purchases in life have been based wholly on logic. If you think about your past purchases, you’ll probably say the same.
Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) is the study of influencing the subconscious mind through every-day conversation...Read the rest of this entry »
So many people say you cannot spot a narcissist or someone with a personality disorder until it's too late, but then they will tell you about the string of narcissists they have been in relationships with.
This is a clue.
While they may not consciously recognize the narcissist at the onset of the relationship the fact they keep "falling" into relationships with them is no accident.
I used to run this pattern myself with BPDs (people with Borderline Personality Disorder. Similar to narcissism, but more toxic). There is definitely something subconscious going on, because "normal" people are not attracted to narcissists.Read the rest of this entry »
Are you an “aware” person?
Most people think they’re pretty aware and observant, but the fact is, our conscious awareness is tiny compared to the subconscious mind.
I’ll give you an example…
Take a moment to look around your environment. As you do, I want you to notice everything brown in your environment. Just take inventory of everything brown in your environment. Take about 30 to 60 seconds to try this.
Great. Got it? Good. Now...Read the rest of this entry »
We’ve all heard rumors that governmental figures are using “mass hypnosis” to influence and sway the people of our great nations.
Most of the time, this sounds like some silly conspiracy theory. But after all the recent news about the elections, I think it's time to find out if there's any truth to the rumors.
I sat down to analyze the speech patterns of the top three candidates at the time of this writing (Mar 08): Hilary Clinton, John McCain and Barack Obama.
Of course, without something to compare them to, numbers are just numbers. So I wanted to get some radically clear benchmarks for contrast. I picked one person who I'm fairly certain has no hypnotic skills – Bill Gates of Microsoft – and one who was notorious for his ability to hypnotize and influence the masses – Adolf Hitler.
In testing for hypnotic ability, I looked for these specific language patterns in a 500 word excerpt from each subject:Read the rest of this entry »
