Would you like to find NLP strategies that help you focus on YOUR most valuable asset…
Your MIND (but sadly NOT in everyone’s case)!
Maybe, you already know that success in sport is about 20% skill and mindset is all the rest.
But, did you know that mindset is responsible for 80% success in learning and sales, as well as in life?
Well, that’s why NLP strategies have become the “go to” skillset for anyone wanting to live their best life yet and this week, I’m exciting to share one of the reasons why.
Knowing that mindset is the key is great, but that knowledge alone isn’t enough to open the door to success if a person has a limiting belief or behaviour that’s holding them back.
And here’s the thing…
Often times, people aren’t consciously aware of what’s holding them back. If they knew, the chances are they would do something about it, wouldn’t they?
NLP Strategy Elicitation is a great for two reasons.
Firstly, if we can elicit the part of a strategy that isn’t working, we can mess it up and install a strategy that works instead.
And secondly, if someone else has a successful strategy you can “try it on” and see if it works for you. So, what is a strategy?
Simply put, a strategy is a mental sequence or pattern to achieve a goal such public speaking.
An example of a successful strategy may be:
- Visual External: Look at the audience and notice someone who is interested and smiling.
- Kinaesthetic Internal: Feel good about that.
- Auditory External/Kinaesthetic External: Reflect that good feeling in your voice and project it to the audience.
Whereas an unsuccessful strategy may be:
- Auditory Internal: Say to oneself, “Everyone’s looking at me”.
- Kinaesthetic Internal: Feel bad [embarrassed]
- Auditory External/Kinaesthetic External: Reflect that bad/embarrassed feeling in your voice and project that on the audience.
Eliciting this quality of information is dependent on asking elegant questions, understanding, and using Eye Accessing Cues and tuning up your ears to hear sensory information. All great skills that you can develop, as and when you decide to learn NLP.
So, my invitation to you this week is to reflect on a behaviour you want to improve and notice the sequence. How do you know when to start it? And what happens next? And then? Repeat until you get to the end of the sequence, which is often times when you feel bad. You can then plan the changes you’ll make to secure the improvement.
