I've recently been doing some webinars recently because I've also quarantined during these times. The other day I was on one about persuasion and someone asked me a question, which I thought was a very good question. They asked, "What specific action can I take to tomorrow?"
I realize that because of some of the "techniques" that have been developed in NLP are very fast, that's very different than learning how to implement strategies as learned in steps. So, in a very few short moments, I calculated my response by asking myself one simple question, "How can I respond to that question in a way that would both give a very short answer, and yet a strategy that would also give the person an informative and useful response?" Now even though strategies can be comprised of many steps, and can also be triggered to a "meme" that would represent the entire strategy.
For example: Think about the steps to take to get out of bed in the morning. Once you awake, eyes open, what do you do next? Do you say something to yourself, then see images of the events for the day? Perhaps seeing yourself making something for breakfast or making coffee? having breakfast? taking a peek into the internet to check your facebook account, emails, etc.? While all of these have strategies unto themselves, thinking of these then causes you to get out of bed.
So, in a very short couple moments, having considered that the person asked me the question during this virus pandemic, my initial was, "Get off your butt and do something!" While "something" is a non-referring noun, it represents what it means to a person. Then I continued: "Get out of your pajamas, get dressed". Take a shower, shave, do the things you would do as if you're going to work!" "Ladies, do your hair, whatever you do, put on your makeup, if that's what you do in the morning."
You see, we all have regular "routines", or whatever you call them, on what we would call regular days, etc. Once we're at home, as we have been, for a long time, sitting around, watching television, watching movies, etc. do we "get lazy"? Yes, in a way. We're out of our "regular routine."
So, as it seems that someday, hopefully soon, get back to your routine and "practice" going through your "regular" as best you can. Be busy, do some chores, whatever you'd do.
This is one of the best ways to get through the boredom and then when this is all over, it will become easier to get back to your real routine.
There's no harm in doing this, it helps keep from eating, snacking all day, etc. and you'll feel much better for it!
And you thought NLP is complicated!

As we are all aware, the restrictions on face to face meetings over the past few months have led to an explosion in on-line working. This provides exciting opportunities for new learnings and as NLPers we are at the leading edge of change work.
John and Richard recently provided very helpful guidance about what NLP training trainers could deliver on line. I thought it would be a good idea to provide some guidance as to how we deliver learning on-line. So here are 4 of my top tips.
Say what it does on the tin!

Integrity . something I value very much, expect of myself,
and want in others I surround myself with and choose to do business
MY reiki master taught me a definition I prefer above all others:
"Integrity, is doing what you say you're going to do."
IF integrity is as the dictionary defines it, then behaving
with integrity is relative to one's personal definition, moral
and ethical principles, character, and honesty. Even honesty
is relative to some. In this definition, the possibility of
IF on the other hand, we adopt my favorite and guiding definition
of integrity; simply doing what you say you're going to do,
then it's far more absolute, reliable, and "'my word is
golden", with the only acceptable exception being circumstances
truly and honestly beyond one's control. With this behavior,
one's integrity is predictable and therefore on the rare occasion
when circumstances truly are beyond control and prevents the
promised/committed action, a reasonable person is understanding
WHAT is your personal standard of integrity for yourself? Is your word golden or not? If your word is golden, then it doesnt matter if you want to keep your word, changed your mind, something causes you some hardship, etc. You simply take the necessary actions to make sure you dont run out of gas and forward think what has to happen for you to keep your word to act with integrity. What motivates these courageous actions/behaviors? The importance of your word overrides your possible lack of planning, lack of telling the caller Im sorry, I have to pick up someone at 4:00 so Ill need to call you back so I can be there on time, and your dislike of what youll now have to do to keep your word.
WHAT are some of the behavioral changes you can make to amp
up your integrity, if its important to you?
ON the other side of the coin, you can learn to recognize when others dont have these types of hardwiring in their character and avoid the miscommunication thats likely to happen with these people. They wont have the integrity you want in your interactions. Plan for that so if you really want to be picked up by 4:00, have your list of go-to people that have the brand of integrity you want to associate with and you have sensory based evidence of it. They are on time because their word is golden and its consistent.
SO, behaving with this brand of integrity is a win-win-win
situation. THEY win because you did what you said you would
do for them. YOU win because you strengthen your neuro pathway
of behaving with integrity and possibly learned new things about
you and life in general, enabling more confidence. THE WORLD
wins because things move forward and advance in harmony.
Over many decades of the continuing development of Neuro-Linguistic Programming, we have collected hours upon hours of content featuring Dr. Richard Bandler and John La Valle, documenting the evolution of the technology through audio and video. Up until now, this content has been sold on NLP Store only in cassette tape, VHS, CD, and DVD formats made available all around the world. While these have been the only formats to receive the content officially, we believe that there is a better method to make some of the most important NLP-related content available to everyone on a platform that can adapt with the times without concerns about mediums becoming obsolete.
