NLP Practitioner’s Guide to Free Will

NLP Practitioner Guide to Free Will

NLP Practitioner Guide to Free Will

A person’s existence on this planet provides the individual with many opportunities, one of those is to follow a path to elevate to higher levels of consciousness. This journey often starts (or has started) when people book to attend our NLP Practitioner Training. All of us have free will when it comes to our personal development, it’s our free will to choose to create or not create changes purposefully in our lives. Which means of course, that no one is guaranteed to climb the ladder of personal and indeed spiritual development. Free will only comes about if we include the concept of time in our existence.

However in doing this, a common misconception is that, somehow, being a “good” person or all “good” things go unrewarded while “bad” people or “wickedness” in the world goes scot-free.

Distance created by time can stop an individual from understanding the correlation between events in their lives now and events in their lives from the past. This is where NLP and Time Line Therapy ® become useful in shedding light on these connections. It’s possible that the roots of a problem were created 25 years ago. But like the roots of a plant, it remains buried underground and invisible. As time passes those long forgotten roots produce a tree (chaos) that is large and visible and very much in the person’s conscious awareness.

From the NLP Practitioner’s perspective and indeed from a Time Line Therapy ® perspective, nothing happens by chance. Everything can be traced back to a root cause that was planted in the person’s past. Chaos appears because time has separates cause from effect. Everyone faces the consequences of one’s actions, big or small, at some point in the future. It could be months, years or maybe a few lifetimes (if you believe in past lives of course).

To resolve the chaos using NLP and Time Line Therapy ® techniques the individual can create change by digging out the root cause of the problem, so that it will never return. Thus creating the space to create a compelling future instead. But, that’s a choice to do that, it’s the person’s free will.

NLP Practitioner’s 4 Beliefs That Create Success

NLP Practitioner - Beliefs for Success

NLP Practitioner – Beliefs for Success

You are navigating on your journey, the journey is called Life. It has it’s ups and downs, it’s twists and turns and certainly its joys and its challenges. Sometimes it can be easy to lose your outlook with feelings of being overwhelmed or maybe frustrated with what you are faced with. However, by adopting these 4 POWERFUL Beliefs, you will create and maintain a mindset which will drive you to succeed.

  1. I learn from everything that happens – in NLP we adopt the empowering belief that there is no failure only feedback. That means that whatever happens, it’s just feedback, so you can learn from the experience. If it went well, then great, keep that strategy and use it again. If it didn’t go so well, then great! What did you learn and how are you going to do it differently in the future so you create the desired result. You can learn something from everything that happens, if you are open to it. It’s interesting that if you didn’t learn the lesson the first time, then the situation repeats itself on your journey. Only the next time it (metaphorically) slaps you round the face a bit harder, so you take notice! By asking yourself “what is there for me to learn?” AND being open to receiving an answer, that stops the cycle repeating itself in the future.
  2.  This too will pass – meaning that whatever problem you may be experiencing right now, there will come a time when it’s gone and just a distant memory.  In the middle of a crisis, like a relationship break-up, that’s when it’s feels the worst. But things change and we can move quickly through the negative feelings using NLP, Time Line Therapy ™ & Hypnosis. These techniques allow you to let go of the emotional baggage and ensure that you have a clear set of goals and outcomes that you are focussed on achieving. Prepare yourself to be triumphant by remembering that this too will pass.
  3. Keep moving forward – your past is a place of reference, not a place of residence. Do whatever it takes to move yourself forwards. The sooner you can adopt this mindset the better. No matter what you are faced with, you can overcome it. Assess how you are going to choose to move forward and one top tip for you is the idea that you will “bend not break.” Think of trees in the wind. They will stay firmly anchored to their foundations while the branches gracefully flex and move to accommodate the forces of nature. They have flexibility and that’s what you need to be too, flexible.
  4. If it’s to be, then it’s up to me – let go of the idea of waiting for someone else to change your life! If you want it (whatever that is) then it’s up to you to go make it happen. If you want success, it’s up to you. If you want love, it’s up to you. If you want happiness, then it’s up to you. When you take responsibility for what you want and you take action to make that happen, you unconsciously have set in motion, invisible forces that will assist you in making it happen. Focus on what you want – you can achieve anything you want. If you are going to argue for something, quit arguing for why it won’t work and start arguing for all the ways that it will work.

NLP Practitioner – 5 Top Tips for Achieving Your Goals

We know that there are lots and lots of people who start each New Year with wonderful dreams and aspirations AND they have the best intentions in the world to achieve them…..BUT….by about this time into the New Year they are finding it tricky to stick to those resolutions or they’ve given up and I’m sure you know someone like this too.

My question is, “Do you want to make 2016 your best year yet?”

Great, then check out these 5 Top Tips from our NLP Practitioner that will assist you to overcome anything that might have stood in your way of achieving your goals.

First of all: Go and get a note pad and something to write with (ok, I’m old school!) Go and grab your iPad and consider these questions, noting the answers because knowing what you want is the crucial initial step to getting it. (That’s what you want, not what you don’t want.)

Then also knowing what is holding you back is equally vital to making sure you get to achieve your goals.

1. What is it that you want to achieve?

This first step is like what we used to call brain storming. Take a no holds barred approach and write down as many goals as you want in any area of your life, for example, career, relationships, health & fitness.

Start by asking yourself if I could be, do or have anything in life, what would it be? Once you have got it all out on paper, then select one goal that will create the biggest change for you. Now decide on what action steps you need to take to get you there, you can just think of the last step and work back from there. At our NLP Practitioner Certification Training, we will take you through putting your own personal dream into your future in such a way that its attainment becomes easy, effortless and assured.

2. Is this goal something I have TRIED to achieve before?

If the answer is yes, that’s fine, you need to then ask yourself, what has stopped me in the past? This might include time, money, not having the right opportunities or resources, lack of motivation, procrastination, lack of self belief or not knowing how to achieve it. Write all that good stuff down on your pad.

3. Are there any patterns that you have noticed with regards to achieving or not achieving your goals?

Do you for example start something with a huge amount of energy and excitement, only to find your focus and motivation somehow vanish? Do you put off getting started for so long you just give up? Or do you start too many projects at once, and end up overwhelmed?  We share with you at our NLP Practitioner the importance of identifying these old habits, strategies and patterns is key to changing them forever.

4. Do you have any limiting beliefs that are holding you back?

What are you saying to yourself? This is important because your internal dialogue or self talk is a series of instructions or commands to you that can be limiting you from achieving your most prized goals. If your dream for this is the year is to perhaps find the perfect relationship  but you find yourself instead saying to yourself things like “I can’t have a great relationship”, “I don’t deserve it” or “it’s easy for everyone else but not for me” how motivated will you be to achieve your goal? How effective will you be? Listen to what you tell yourself about what you believe limits you and these insights will help you to let go and move forward.

Using Time Line Therapy™ techniques you can easily change those limiting beliefs into empowering beliefs that support you in achieving what you want.

5. What are the critical changes that you must make in order for you to be totally supported and totally successful in reaching your goals?

Maybe things like, to have more confidence in yourself? Being more creative? Break patterns of self-sabotage? Getting over fear of speaking in public? Write down anything and everything that your unconscious mind reveals to you. Rest assured most of or all of these can be let go of at our NLP Practitioner Certification Training.
