|3. ARE WEIGHT SCALES A NOMINALIZATION? - Andrey Bright|
|4. WHERE CAN I FIND WHAT ELSE IS HAPPENING?|
|5. SO, WHAT'S COMING UP?|
John La Valle
The question I get again and again from people is: "What is it that Richard Bandler does that makes it look so easy?"
Early in my training I met Richard Bandler. Before I met him, I was told by many people, "You're crazy if you go to see him." "He's a mad man." "He's this." And "He's that . . ." I'm sure you get the picture. I didn't want to lose the opportunity to see one of the cofounders and so I went.
When I first saw Richard in the training, I also noticed that many others seemed somewhat cautious, yet exhilarated. I found this to be an interesting combination of states. I noticed immediately that Richard was able to keep them at the edge of their seats. I also noticed that before he gave out instructions, he was doing other things that had to do with the instructions.
So, when I noticed that Richard was able to help people change as quickly as he was, I was very curious about that. Every now and again, I find there is even more to learn than I thought there was, and I still know there's more to learn! When I'm in seminars with Richard, I am in the training room when he's in front of the audience. Many people ask me why?
My response is easy: I still learn from what I can observe him
doing, saying, etc. And I ask later on for the information I may
have missed, especially when he was conducting a demonstration of
some technique, and I still appreciate those processes of deletion,
distortion and generalization which are contained in each and every
sentence, and utterance, and sequence in what he is doing.
While training with various trainers in the field, I didn't expect any of them to be cookie cutter robots of either of the cofounders, but I did expect some degree of continuity in the basic information, which I didn't find, except for those who trained personally with Richard and John in the early days. I wanted some consistency in my own training and so I decided to train more with Richard, since by that time, Richard and John had gone their separate ways and I had already become acquainted with Richard. Later, I listened to audio tapes, watched videos of others, and to this day, I'm glad I made the decision I made.
People ask me how is it that we train for days without fatigue and with no notes! That's right, no notes, no book! Well, it's easy!
If you remember the phrase "The map is not the territory", and that means that the menu is not the meal, what I did back then was to realize that while the map is not the territory, the territory is the map, meaning that whatever exists on the outside of our brains started on the inside of someone's brain first (think Nikola Tesla). And so I thought: "If there is a training manual or notes on the outside, that had to come from someone's inside, so why can't I just build all presentations on the inside, and with that enough flexibility to apply those to various audiences as needed?" And that is exactly what I did. And I did it in such a manner that I can address a 15 minute presentation, or a day, or 10 days, whatever it takes.
While the basic skills of NLP will remain the same, NHR ® is a grand opportunity to "Get stuff done while feeling good", as we say.
Since for years we have been teaching people how to feel good, and doing that for no reason at all, the question for now at NHR® is "How much pleasure can you stand?" Accept no substitutes, this is the place to be in March and find out what many other people don't know, yet, and you will.
There is still so more to learn and more to utilize!

Its a thing. On the same spectrum as
over thinking, just at the other end.
Check out these G-guys:
George (38) didnt want to present to the board of
What did they all have in common? They all stopped thinking too soon! None of them had got beyond the first I cant.
By prematurely placing a full stop in their train of thought (I cant full stop), they missed out on getting to the motivational words (inside their minds) that could propel them into action. Bad feelings that followed the full stop drove their brains to back-peddle into excuses that justified inertia, with statements like because
They each tried one little mind experiment, that taught them how their words were affecting their feelings that in turn, what they were motivated to do.
G-guys, despite differences in age, gender and contexts, shared very similar thinking patterns; like this:
G: Thought: I cant do that
They thought short.
Me: you are stopping too soon, in your thinking, add a comma, and add a yet and add dot, dot, dot!
G: Thought: I cant do that, yet
Me: you are still stopping too soon, remember your but and ask yourself what might happen next?
G: Thought: I cant do that, yet
it might be a great adventure
Me: you are still stopping too soon, ask yourself and do you want to do this?
G: Thought: I cant do that, yet
it might be a great adventure and I really do want to do
G-Guys feelings are just chemical sensations in response to thoughts, not environments as is often mistakenly believed. Those sensations often referred to as nervousness can change to excitement and even motivation when the internal dialogue is more supportive.
Why not try out the mind experiment yourself?
Take an I cant thought:
Notice that the resulting feelings of satisfaction, accomplishment and even triumph, come from the inside, and happiness is, after all, an inside job!
Thinking on Purpose is an indispensable guide to anyone
who wants to make changes in their life. Most people dont really
think. They remember.

What am I doing wrong? I went to the gym three times a week, Ive been eating nothing but salad once a day, but the scales wont budge.
Now, If you had a bit of NLP training, and somebody
walked in and said, Help, there's an issue with my motivation,
you could reply with: Well, put it on the table and let's
take a look.
To add to the insult, the human mass* consists of several sources: fat, muscle, water, bones, brains, etc. The fat can further be chunked down to essential and nonessential. Same goes for muscle. Same goes for water: essential water, and water trapped by nonessential tissue. That's right, people really don't think about it but their extra skin also weighs something.
So, which source are you actually trying to lose?
Let's pause for a second. Because the three primary components of a well-formed direction are:
1. knowing what you want.
Now lets go back to What are you trying to lose? With just a little help the person may come to a conclusion that they want to lose extra fat while keeping the healthy portion. With some further help, they may conclude the same about the muscle: bloated muscle gone, while lean muscle mass increased. What is the *most important* muscle in your body anyway?
Now the next question is Can bathroom scales
directly measure the change in nonessential fat or muscle
- and the answer is
"no"*. Can your bathroom
scales measure the behaviours, and all the enjoyable work you've
put in? - and the answer is
Quod Erat Figurantum
