Get to Know Yourself

How well would you say you know yourself? Interestingly, the majority of your patterns of emotions, behaviours, and beliefs are largely unconscious – and are simply a part of what we do and how we act and how we behave. But, what if each and every thing you do is based on your programming? Would you know all of those programs? Or do you think you live life on auto-pilot?

If you’ve ever heard anyone say something like “oh, that’s just how I am” – this is a loud alarm that really says, I don’t really know myself – I just do whatever happens and call it fate.

We tend to underestimate the importance of knowing ourselves. Many of us go through each day reacting to events and just getting by rather than making choices based on who we are and what we want. One of the most common remarks we hear from our students after they begin to learn NLP is “I truly understand and know myself more now – so now, I can respect my model of the world”.

In NLP, this is a presupposition or assumption – to respect another person’s model of the world. But, first and foremost, NLP will help you to understand and respect your own.

Your Model of the world is made up of your history, memories, values, beliefs, concepts, imagination, and something we call meta programs – which are unconscious filters though which you make sense of your world through. With NLP, you will learn not only more about what is important to you, what you belief, how your behaviours help or hold you back – you’ll also be able to figure out why you do what you do. You’ll learn how to change what isn’t working for you and enhance what it.

Unfortunately, not knowing yourself well can lead to confusion and wasting much time with indecision second guessing. However, when you know what motivates you, how to make better decisions, what is important to you and how to change aspects that hold you back, something magical can happen. That something magical is that YOU can not only better understand yourself, you can become your own best friend!

Create more internal awareness

Sensory acuity is a great skill to have with others and the world around you, it is also an exceptional tool to have for yourself. Too many people don’t put their own needs first and they don’t recognise when their mind/body are communicating to them.

With NLP and sensory acuity skills, you will also learn to tune more into yourself. You’ll be able to listen and trust your unconscious mind more, notice more of your intuition, be clearer in your mind and more determined in your way of being.

What we’ve found is when our students start to apply their sensory acuity skills with themselves, they begin to better respect their own model of the world and start to give them what they need. Imagine really being able to understand what you need from yourself!

And guess what, those little aches and pains, or a headache, or hunger when you’re stressed, or the need for a cigarette, or depression or anxiety – all of that is your body’s way to communicate to you. Won’t it be great to have the tools available to truly be able to listen to yourself in a new and more powerful way!

Create Success with NLP

We are sure you’re successful already, which is what you should be! But what if you could really get to know yourself in a way that would help you to create even more success in your life?

With NLP, you will learn about your unconscious filters which connect directly to your success strategies. Some of these include your motivational drivers, what you are pulled toward or pushed away from, compelling instincts of counting or discounting, patterns of flexibility, emotional intelligence and more.

We know that when you know better that allows you to do better. So, not only will you be learning more about what makes you tick – we will be identifying anything that might hold you back from creating success in your life. Limiting beliefs, behaiours, self-talk, etc.

NLP also contains tools to help you to identify and create goals, along with a plan of action to take steps to achievement; all while managing your state and psychology. You probably already have some ideas of what success means to you; with NLP you can bring even more of that into your life!

Build Your Confidence

The confidence a person feels is an important factor in how they present themselves to the world. Generally, you have confidence about something that you do; for example, you might be confident that you can drive a car or confident to read a book, or confident to do you job. On the other hand, if you are not quite skilled at something or if you have conflicting beliefs about your skills you might have a lack of confidence. Examples of this may be – you don’t feel confident that you could climb Kilimanjaro, or you may not be confident to run a marathon or write a book.

Sometimes a lack of confidence is based on a lack of skill; and rightly so. If I’ve never played the violin, I can’t be confident in my skills of playing it. Sometimes however, a lack of confidence comes from a limiting belief, missing value or other internal conflict.

To build confidence with NLP, you will first need to get specific on what kind of confidence it is and then identify what stops or blocks you from having confidence in that area of life. NLP contains many tools to help you to change beliefs, align values and even clear conflict that may be standing in your way. You can even build or add extra resources you may need to boost your confidence, like self-belief, tenacity, resilience or self love.

Additionally, NLP is based on modelling. If there is an aspect in your life that you are confident about, we can map across your confidence from that aspect of life onto another. This may come in handy if you lack confidence to ask a girl (or a guy) out on a date, but you have confidence to ask a stranger for directions.

You are in charge of your mind – so, when you get your mindset right about your confidence, anything becomes possible!

Regain control of your life

Have you ever felt out of control or like you were no longer in charge of your life? Perhaps its felt like you are on a never ending loop of sameness.

NLP has a presupposition that says you are in charge of your mind and therefore your results. With NLP, you can truly start to harness your life and be the leader, not just a participant.

Often times we find that when people feel out of control, they are either wandering through life without a plan or a goal, they are aimlessly following others hoping someone else has their answers, or they are holding onto the reigns of life so tightly they have gotten stuck and can’t move forward.

Not only will NLP help you to identify what you want; NLP will help you to find out what is truly important to you, what is within your control and help you to create a plan of action to create more success in your life.

Sometimes we have beliefs, emotions, thoughts or other people in our life that hold us back. You will gain valuable tools to change and patterns which are not working in your favour so you can take back control of life. And, sometimes we haven’t yet given our self complete permission to be in charge.

When you can start to define what control means to you – both the positive and negative attributes of it and you begin to be aware of what you want and what might be standing in your way, NLP will help you to easily bridge the gap and fully regain control in your life.
