Conversational Postulate | Milton Model | NLP is Fun

A Conversational Postulate is a Language pattern that comes from the NLP Milton Model, and is used in Conversational Hypnosis as well as Ericksonian Hypnosis.

It is designed to help a Person to take action now while asking in an indirect way.
A question is Posed or Postulated (seemingly as a suggestion) That gets a Knee jerk order response.
Don't Worry this is going to be even easier than you Thought,  Remember learning NLP is Fun. 
In conversational Hypnosis:
Instead of saying quite clearly
Will you please go and fetch me the pickles

When using a Conversational Postulate You might instead say
Can you pass me the pickles ...

(You could say Yes or no but there is probably a great chance that you actually pick it up and hand it to me).
Let's do some more so you will get the hang of it.

Here are some you might find used in every day language:
Can you pass me that water ?
Will you get me one too ?
Are you going to swing by the house then,  if you do can you get my jacket from over there when you go ?
Do you have the time ?
Can you get the Door ?
Will you get that ?
Is there enough for me?

All of these questions could be answered Yes or No and even so they have provoked a response and the person who posed the questions is expecting the action to be taken.

In Hypnosis:
Will you relax now and quietly consider this is an easy exercise
Perhaps you are going to think of other ways in which you can use this pattern then
Will you sit in this chair and begin to relax now
Can you notice how your breath is slowing down
Can you allow your mind to wander as you begin to let go of your stress
Can you indicate from your unconscious mind perhaps with a signal, perhaps moving your finger ever so slightly, One way or another to signal you agree.
Are you noticing how easy it is once you let go of time consuming  and unhappy thoughts 
Will you go into a trance by going into an altered state of consciousness

In Hypnosis in order to find the answer there is a greater likelihood of the person doing an internal check and experiencing the suggestion.

If the person is nicely relaxed they will enjoy and experience your suggestion and maybe say yes in their mind too.
Certainly they will agree with your suggestion.

Also Persuasive in Business environments:
Want to pick out the one you prefer while I have some left?
I can bring your order to the conference to make your pick up easy, will two boxes do it?
That is a Powerful pitch, It would be amazing to have you host our meeting, can I count on you this Tuesday?
Want to pick up the one we spoke about and let me know how you get on with it?
Would you like me to change your order to one that makes perfect financial sense to you?
Are you still going to get the one you fell in love with earlier?

In Business settings it is still quite like Hypnosis although it is more frequently called Persuasion.
The structure is Rapport based and linked to an association that creates a Kinesthetic response.

Your Turn to practice and use them:
Do you understand how to use them and if so do you think you will be using them now ?
Are you finding yourself studying more now the pattern is simple?

All Sales Begin and end in your own Mind | NLP is Fun

Selling is a Mindset and it is something that any of us who want to achieve progress must do.
You can be selling:
An actual Product
A service
A piece of change as in change work
A persuasive argument
An Idea to a class, your child, Your partner, Your friend

But one thing is a constant.
It is not until you have
1. Identified your outcome in detail
2. Bought it yourself in full congruence
That you will be successful in achieving your outcome.
In other words, think of it like this.
All Sales Begin and end in how you program your own mind for your success.
With this being said, if you want "Yes Tickets" of any kind, in any form. You must become the master of your own mind.
Your unconscious processes are predicting your behavior and of course your results. NLP is about restructuring your unconscious processes to work on your behalf.

Program your mind then just as a Mind builder would. Be relentless in giving yourself the NLP advantage in resilience and Self mastery.
When you want to sell anything you must have already been well rehearsed in your NLP mental drills. This affects your unconscious processes as you have trained your mind to act in your favor.

This is why learning self hypnosis and NLP are so valuable. Yes it is true that you will be able to influence other people and more importantly you will be able to influence yourself into high gear and tenacious action first.

How serious are you about Training your mind for Peak conditioning and what are you doing regularly to improve ?

The Top 10 Skills of Excellent Communicators | NLP is Fun

Excellent communication skills are essential in today's society, in fact the better you are at Communication the better your quality of life will be.
NLP is the most exceptional tool for advanced communication. Every thing about Neuro linguistic programming is designed to improve the way in which we communicate with ourselves and each other.

When Richard Bandler and John Grinder Modeled the best communicators at the beginning stages of designing NLP they found the following qualities in each of them.

See No Evil |Hear No Evil |Speak no Evil .. unless of course, it is part of your Communication Strategy and is the best way to build Rapport with whomever you are speaking with. Speaking their language always and in all ways.

1, One must be absolutely clear with the outcome and stay focused on it, improving along the way as sensory acuity dictates.

2, The person with the most incredible flexibility wins and can stay in the game the longest, adapting as necessary.

3. The advanced communicator is well managed and is in control of their responses and reactions, knowing how to reset their emotions to neutral states quickly even if caught off guard.

4. They understand the essential importance of Rapport.

5. They control the frame, they design the states in other people to move in the direction of the desired outcome.

6. They stay focused and are disciplined in their processes, even if it does not seem so.

7. They view a Challenge as something exciting and strive to enjoy all challenges.

8. They have a flexible and positive attitude.

9. They live by the presupposition, the meaning of my communication is the response I am getting.

10. They are persistent and always have an association to the outcome no matter what it looks like, they are absolutely certain they will achieve their Goal.

The Cookie Cutter Strategy | NLP is Fun

How to get it right every time - Cookie Strategy | NLP is Fun 

Have you ever tried to make a cookie and with all your best intentions the Batter  merged into one massive pile of "Goooo" on the baking sheet, or the bottom of the Biscuit was hard and Black Yet the top was much too soft?
If this sounds familiar , read on...

Lots of Patterns that can be found else where have good ideas and can be duplicated in other contexts too.

Here is one I designed earlier from making successful Biscuits/Cookies.

Try it on for size and let me know if you really like it.
There are 5 Steps to making a perfect Cookie and if you are not a regular cookie maker you may just think "if I just follow the recipe it will all work out".

As in life there are other external factors that could alter your end result, sometimes that are subtle differences that are not always supplied with the recipe.
Read on to find out more. 

Step 1.

You should begin with quality Ingredients - make sure your Sugar is not clumped your Flour is fresh your eggs are the best available and all your ingredients have the High standard that you would expect to taste at your end result.

Step 2.

It is important to be delicate with the flour - if the flour is not handled with respect the air factor will not create the light and fluffy cookies you are hoping for. Over handling can make for hard flat and even lumpy cookies, Trust that you have done all you need too with care and confidence.

Step 3.

Are your measurements accurate - sometimes when rushing, you may have a pinch too little of this and heavy handed with that remember what you put in is what you will get out.
Take your time and be careful with substitutions to make sure they are appropriate to this particular cookie.

Step 4.

Sometimes the slightest difference makes all the difference - did you know if you chill your cookie dough before baking your cookies will have a chance to set well.
There are often tiny overlooked details which separate mediocrity from excellence.

Step 5.

Now that your cookies have come out of the oven nicely and you have achieved your goal, it is important to protect and preserve your Investment with proven tools that work.
You will need to first let your cookies cool completely, then store them in an airtight container so nothing can get in and nothing can leak out, in this case even air makes a difference.
Be Patient and understand the complete process which is the overview and also the minute details that make all the difference.

Always Create a strategy for success, Instead of just winging it. These are Rules that you like and want to implement because you know they will give you the result you are looking for. Something that has worked before is a great place to start. Might need some fine tuning to work in this particular context but hey, you have nothing to loose.
Be willing to adjust it as necessary and keep it moving.
