Tricks of the Mind | NLP is Fun

The Mind is very good at convincing you of anything. This has nothing to do with if it is true or not.

Things that you are afraid of are just "What ifs", beliefs. your own home made ideas that you have had on rotation long enough to think of as real. Illusions we know by now that reality is subjective but try explaining that to somebody having a panic attack !
Instead though, there are so many things that you can do to quickly get control of Overwhelm and fear like this for example

To enjoy Peak states we must learn to begin to diligently break down these mental constructions in our mind at the times when there is no pressure to perform.

 You can train your mind to become your best friend and ally.

In NLP we speak about Phobia’s a great deal. Phobia’s are not the exception to the rule as one may 
think,  In fact, they are a demonstration of how easily we can influence ourselves with suggestions. 
This is Self hypnosis at it’s best.

We have programmed our mind to do what we have asked it to do.

“As the Thinker thinks the prover proves”.

Our mind wants to follow out our regular programming and is certainly resistant to change.

Change is good, as long as it is not happening in a way we don’t want it to right ?
Or perhaps this is not true.

Maybe even problems are good and hold value
Perhaps a challenge is just a chance to improve
What if we were to re frame the meaning ?

This means that (bad)
And that means for sure we are all going to die (worse)

And could also mean

This means that (Good)
And that means we will all get something better now 
Isn’t that a relief and a stress release ...

What if we did this instead ?

So the meaning we have decided without really knowing for sure in NLP we call this a "Mind read" which is a Distortion in the Meta Model.

There is information Deleted and yet we have drawn a very fuzzy conclusion.
Guess what, this happens all the time.

Sometimes it can be as simple as following the fear to it’s worst conclusion and then asking well 
what about if ________________________ happens

What will happen then 
And how will that affect you 
Is that really true ?

Do you know this for sure ?
Has there ever been a time when _____________ happened to anyone and they were OK 
Has there ever been a time when ___________________ happened and they were really good in fact they thrived?

This is about connecting to the distortions, as this happens it takes the stuffing out of them.

We are using the Meta Model to begin to chunk down from the ambiguous trains of thoughts.
This means if it is a thought it must earn its position to influence us so greatly.

We must know for sure it is absolutely
Solid Gold
Lock tight 
The absolute undisputed truth 
Swear on the bible
Everyone in the whole world will recognize it as truth without any problem.
In other words, it is a scientific fact well documented by scientists and other likely learned fellows.
