Have you ever tried to communicate with someone who doesn't speak your language, and they couldn’t understand you? The classic example of this is when you go to a restaurant in a foreign country and you think they ordered something, but when the food shows up, it turns out you got something else altogether. And then you are disappointed. And if this happens once too often, you make up your mind that this is your reality and you have to live with it.
This is the kind of relationship that you have with your unconscious mind. You might think you are “ordering up” more money, a happy, healthy relationship, peace with our family members, and being able to stick to a healthy diet…but unless that’s what is showing up, then something is probably getting lost in translation.
“The conscious mind is the goal setter, and the unconscious mind is the goal getter.”
Your unconscious mind is not out to get you – rather, it’s out TO GET FOR YOU whatever you want in life. However, if you don’t know how to properly communicate what you want, it will keep serving you things that you think you had not ordered for.
Taking an NLP training is like learning how to become fluent in the language of your mind so that the ever-so-helpful “server” that is your unconscious will finally understand what you actually want out of life.
Learning NLP is like learning the language of your own mind so that you can order what you truly want and ensure that you get it. You can create your reality.
Owning your life, becoming the true owner and master of your life is really about mastering your mind, mastering your thoughts, mastering your physical and emotional states. It is about being in charge of your thoughts & feelings.
A lot of time life will make you feel as if that's all there is, this is how it is and that you need to accept it as an unchangeable reality, you will feel stuck.
Over 12+ years of experience having trained and coached over 100,000 people across 16 nationalities, I can say that while there may be an external reality, we as humans are unlikely to ever know the complete reality which is outside of us. The only reality we ever know is the one we make up in our minds. And there are set, defined ways in which our minds make up this reality. And you can now choose to make up the reality you want and then see it become real in the outside world.
And the study of Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) allows you to exactly this.
