NLP is not a study material
Only this 3 letter word NLP fascinates people, not even the full name Neuro-Linguistic Program.
People enroll for NLP course; go through the motion of the training.
During the process of participating in activities of the NLP course where a lot of work is about going within, seeing within, hearing within, people who are more accustomed to ‘intellectualizing’ ‘analyzing’ verbalizing feel a disconnect because of the nature of NLP exercise and so rush to conclude that ‘this is more now a fiction of imagination and may be it now gives a feel good factor and perhaps it may give result some time later’ and so bundle up NLP as something they will take it up later.
To these’ intellectuals’ the program is not ‘lively’. So it is just a game of chance for them to really look into the essence of NLP.
Interestingly there is also another type of participants who blindly repose faith in the efficacy of NLP and so take the training so seriously that they take the subject as a sacred text of study and rigidly remain within the frame of reference given in the training. They don’t budge. They just go by the book.
They take up NLP exercise as a matter of ritual and desire to impose rules to practice NLP
NLP to them becomes a fixed routine of activity like walking listening to music or mundane routines of bathing & eating. These people see NLP as something to be done.
Invariably the initial enthusiasm dampens after a week or so and they miss out the ‘NLP work out’. This gives them a feeling of guilt and a spark of realization that they have to do something flashes & vanishes on and off.
NLP is not a study; NLP is not just a concept to understand and exchange as in seminars.
NLP is more about what you want to do in life; NLP is not about what you want to do for it.
The ‘trick of the trade’ for NLP learning is curiosity, a child like curiosity; a mere indulgence; indulge in the process; play with the tools of NLP.
More can be learnt if the mind is relaxed; more can be achieved in a non competitive frame of mind.
The beauty of NLP is it starts with your experience, it talks about your experience & it concludes with your experience; your feedback about your experience is your learning.
NLP is something what you do within you, what you do to you, what you learn from the experience.
Real purpose of NLP learning is to increase your awareness, awareness of what is going on within you awareness of what is going on around you.
Become of aware of what you are doing, how you are doing, what you want ;
then NLP will follow like tail wagging faithful dog
NLP is more than its techniques and tools
NLP is more than just a study
NLP is way of life
So internalize the principles of NLP
With NLP you truly become a New Lovable Person
