What is NLP? What does it even stand for? It’s a catchy, roll off the tongue phase hey? NOT!!!
Let’s not focus on what it stands for or even what it means, let me share with you what it can do, that to me is the most important thing when I am working with clients around the globe and teaching others to become Ultimate Coaches.
With my understanding of the NLP processes, which is basically a step by step, follow the dots on how to achieve a better life kinda thing. Let me give you an example, I was recently working with a seven-year-old who is still wetting the bed, I followed the steps and after one 60-minute session, the child is dry and building in confidence. This has nothing to do with me really, it is the study of how others have over come the same problem and this is then extracted and popped into a handy follow the steps process. Sure you need to have an understanding of what is going on in the client’s neurology, you need to know how to get the client to relax with you, to play full out, to be themselves.
NLP is not magic, it is not some mystical tree hugging full moon stuff, it is easy and it just works. Whether we are helping a client to over come a fear, phobia, habit, addition, self sabotage, anxiety, depression and the list goes on, basically anytime a human being is doing something inside their mind that is unhelpful then NLP can generally, used well, help.
To the client it does seem like magic, they will say things like “If I had known it would be so simple then I would have come to see you years ago.” Sometimes they feel you have done something to them, but alas no, they have made the changes themselves, all you did was hold the remote control and hit the right buttons.
With NLP you can change your life, shape it and tweak it until you are living your ultimate life, you can also help others change theirs. I have been in personal development for 30 years and started my love affair with NLP in 2005, I felt like I had been given the key to the treasure chest, the ONE set of tools that can make real changes that last.
I set up my own company Your Life Live It in 2005 and encouraged other coaches to join me, get NLP’d and really help, not just thinking we are helping, but really changing lives one at a time. I now license my brand and help new coaches to get working as soon as possible, we supply a business in a box and do some hand holding. We now have 20 Coaches world wide and we are growing, many coaches come on our Ultimate Coaching course to get the real deal, to have the key to that treasure chest of change. Simple steps of excellence I like to call the real gig, most others might call it NLP.
