Tote Model of Strategies | NLP is Fun

When providing NLP Coaching and certainly in NLP Training  we are determined to create a check point to know if a strategy of any kind is working at it's highest functioning.


For this reason, every single time we do any pattern we will use the Tote Model of strategies.

The Tote Model is not exclusive to  Neuro linguistic programming as it was created by George Miller, Eugene Galanter and Karl Pibram for developing feedback loops to developed processes that were complete for operating and monitoring human systems for problem solving.


T.O.T.E stands for Test, Operate, Test, Exit.

1) Test where the system is currently
2) Operate a solution for Improvement and higher functioning.
3) Test how well the operation worked to overall functioning of the System.
A) If it provided the Desired Outcome Exit
B) If further resources are needed continue to Operate until an Exit point has been determined by the feedback loop.

4) Exit only when satisfied with the stability of achieving desired result.

There is no such thing as Failure only Feedback | NLP is Fun

In Neuro Linguistic Programming we have established a few Presuppositions which we call the NLP Presuppositions, and many of them I have written about already.

Today I will discuss another one which is:
"There is No Failure only Feedback"

When things do not go as we planned them, it can seem normal to feel disappointment, Anger sadness or even Frustration after all we all have our own emotions.
We may have put so much effort towards the outcome that we even feel like giving up or that we have done a bad job and shouldn't even try again.


I call this a downward spiral and I have experienced it myself, it is quite normal.
To feel a wide range of emotions is normal and let's you know that you are alive so to feel your emotions is fine. What I have also found is that to feel your emotions for an extended amount of time causes other problems.

That is why I call it a downward spiral as it begins to go downward very quickly sucking in other bits with it and before you know it you could be telling yourself a very sad story about your current situation.

That is just not practical or efficient for anybody. so after you have suffered a loss, instead of going Full on Downward spiral take all experience as feedback.

If you got the result you want great, things are on track if you did not get your outcome, modify your approach until you achieve your Target.

Consider your result practical feedback or Feed forward and you get to choose how you will respond to it.
If you consider it 
a practice run, then the next time you go for it you already have some experience. Experience is like a layering effect. The more you do it, the better you can become at it.
Remember Test Operate Test Operate = The Tote Model  
If you want to know my thoughts about failure click here to read Failure is Final 

Neuro linguistic programming is about improving your subjective reality which will improve your overall experience.

The best way to improve your experience is to practice using Neuro linguistic patterns that allow choice to become a normal part of your reality, and then choose a behavior that supports your outcome.

The Conscious Mind | NLP is Fun

In Neuro Linguistic programming we speak of The Conscious mind and the Unconscious mind, If you would like to learn about the unconscious mind then you can do so by clicking here   and also on this NLP is Fun post I wrote about programming your unconscious mind.

The Conscious Mind is about real time awareness it is a state of awareness that is about your focused attention, what you are focusing on at the moment.
And also this description is an example of what it could be and what we mean when we use it. We use it as a metaphor because it is a practical way to use language to describe an experience.


The Conscious mind would also represent chunking down into details like when we use the Meta Model for example, as opposed to the Milton Model which we use Chunking Up in ambiguity for the most part.

When we speak of The Conscious Mind we mean attention to Stimulus of what is happening inside (in detail) and Outside (In Detail).

You may have heard an NLP Practitioner say the Conscious mind is the gate keeper of the Mind, and that it does not have the capability to operate the full potential of the mind. Which means it is often attempting to dominate out of its scope of capability.

Worrying about the future is an example of this since the Future is not in a state of consciousness at present.
we can certainly image in e  what we believe to be a version of what could happen in the future and this will happen in the Unconscious mind. And if the conscious mind expects a bad result NOW it would draw comparisons from the unconscious mind of how bad it could be.

A transderivational search (for comparative meaning) Like in the Communication model.
Although to say this is true of accurate is left to interpretation. You can see how the conscious mind is great for an initiator of Hypnosis by now can you not ?

This is because the conscious mind can represent 7 plus or minus 2 pieces of information at a time and an example of  this could be a lighthouse that shines over the dark and cold water at night time the lighthouse sweeps light over small parts of the water periodically. It illuminates different area's one at a time. It does not have the scope to alight the whole Sea at once.

The bit that is illuminated is the bit you are aware of in the present. The rest of the sea still exists and it would be "in the Unconscious Mind" which is everything else.
even though it exists and you may or may not know it does, it is "out of consciousness" which can mean you are not aware of it in the present and any detail of it.

Some say The conscious mind is considered to be a messenger, you can use it to initiate Self hypnosis for example. It is most practical to instruct your conscious mind with a series of repetitious thoughts and behaviors so as to overload The critical faculty and spill into the Unconscious mind for Transformation.

Remember the conscious mind is a great helper when we become more mindful on what we love to experience. This will help to create more of these satisfying experiences by paying attention.

More about your Unconscious Mind | NLP is Fun

Neuro linguistic Programming is about making sure you have more options and choices available to you at any given time.
One of the most important presuppositions then is to understand our objective is to program the Unconscious mind to be even more effective for our desired outcome.

I have written about how to "Program your unconscious mind" here  in this post I will give a few tips about what your unconscious mind is busy doing.
If your Conscious mind is a wallet, your unconscious mind is your Luggage.

The unconscious mind has stored All experience. Including experience that has been experienced "Out of consciousness"
The Unconscious mind works well to help you, and is using previously programmed information. your most frequent filtering and beliefs.
in order to change a belief it must be reprogrammed in your unconscious mind.

As you may know all transformation is created by adjusting how you do your unconscious process and the goal is to overload the critical faculty and impress you unconscious mind with the new behavior.
Using NLP and Hypnosis for this is fast and thorough.




Of course bear in mind the Unconscious mind already is working and here is what the Unconscious mind is charge of:
Your Body Functioning, it is preserving your whole body functioning entirely. All of your Neurological process is unconscious.
You can also direct these processes by programming your unconscious mind to improve the way it is functioning.
An example of which is to relax and tell your breathing to slow down. Did you know that many mentalist's slow their heart rate down so that it practically stops but beats just enough to keep them alive.
And all Pain may be controlled by programming your unconscious mind.
Watch this Derren Brown clip from "Something Wicked This way comes"  

The Unconscious mind is in charge of your real Values carrying out, preserving and enforcing your Values, this is why some times a goal has not yet been achieved as there is an internal Values conflict. All new behavior must support your whole ecology and pass through your unconscious filters.

Your Emotional responses, your Brain chemistry how you are reacting according to your most used emotional responses another way of saying this is your moods.
Your Memories, Storing, repressing to protect you and representing memories in case you would like to deal with them.
Your real Preferences which means your real unconscious desires and not the ones you really don't like, (but want people to think you do like) and your filtered  perceptions.
Your Habitual behavior Patterns that you have done so much become second nature.
Your Beliefs that serve a higher purpose to your overall functioning.

Neuro linguistic programming is about improving your subjective reality which will improve your overall experience.

The best way to improve your experience is to practice using Neuro linguistic patterns that allow choice to become a normal part of your reality, and then choose a behavior that supports your outcome.

Happy Thanks giving | NLP is Fun |

Happy Thanks giving, albeit belated.


The week before Thanks giving, i was thinking about the Salutation:
Happy
Thanks
Giving
In great detail actually.
It impressed me as a super Hypnotic suggestion.

Happy = experience happiness
Thanks = be grateful
Giving = share what you have to offer
When i think of this i can focus on Thanksgiving with a solid intention.
An intention to provide service happily.

This Thanksgiving i was determined to do just that.
The beauty of it is that with this attitude magic happened and i probably had one of my best Thanksgivings.

There is something quiet humbling in this for me.

How about you, what would you like to share about your own experience.

NLP | The Excuse Blow out Pattern | NLP

The Excuse Blow out Pattern is credited to Michael L. Hall
This NLP Pattern is a refreshing thing to do while you are relaxing this weekend.
If you think having a Parrot land on your head and get tangled in your hair is fun, think again.
But any way back to this pattern.
The NLP Excuse Blow out Pattern.


You can use NLP to challenge yourself and find out what you are making excuses about and why you are making excuses.

If you want to find out more about your internal processes then let us get started.

Ready, let us go !

Step one:
What exactly is the Excuse (otherwise known as reason) you have not achieved your real goal.
a) What is the behavior and pattern of behavior
b) How is the behavior operated
c) Include all sensory findings V.A.K.O.G

Step Two:
a) How do you feel about this Excuse reason now after doing step one thoroughly.
b) What unconscious findings, have you now discovered
c) What is the highest intention for this behavior

Step Three:
a) Consider the value of the highest intention of this pattern.
b) Dismantle the intention and result of what your highest intention is and redesign it to be more favorable for you.
c) Enjoy the benefits and drop the behaviors previously surrounding the hidden intentions

Step Four:
a) Decide with all certainty to Completely drop the old behavior.
b) See a Visual stop sign
c) Shout Hell no in your loudest internal or external voice
d) Feel the impact of drawing a thick black line in the ground and amplify this.

Step Five:
Test Operate and also notice how much progress you have made ahead of time and notice how else you will now improve here.

Step Six:
Future Pace remember to amplify the VAKOG associations.

*Bonus
Consider designing a swish "Switch" into your new strategy build as you do this pattern.
Most of all, have fun with it.
