NLP First Aid
I was the first 'mum' into the emergency room following a car crash involving one of my boys and his two mates. And once the assessment of my son improved, I turned my attention to his friend who was, in quite a bad way.
He was, for the first time in over two hours, alone for a few moments, in a semi conscious state trying desperately to make sense of the situations and things he thought he had heard about his injuries.
I had choice - leave him to his distortions of what
was happening to him; become emotionally involved myself in his drama or, dissociate from his
reality and utilize the NLP skill set that I know can bring about instant and
amazing results - I chose the latter.
Neuro - because I communicated my own strong internal state of calm confidence - re-assuring his unconscious mind.
Linguistic - because the more I stacked
presuppositions of his wellbeing and recovery, the more he listened to my
temporal shifting of his fears.
Programming - because I could see how he was stressing himself and swiftly interrupt those patterns.
And so much more, in a few minutes that positively altered the readings on his monitors.
It is not rocket science - if you say "this" pain or "that" pain, which feels more real and up close? I even overheard a medic asking ‘how is you pain coming along?' Just think about that for a moment - the presupposition that the pain belongs to you and is growing ...
You can easily learn exactly these skills and more. Just imagine having greater state management, a toolkit of influential language patterns, and a greater understanding of how (not what) people think. Find out more about our NLP training:

TIP! Maybe you haven't given much thought to being at the mercy of your thoughts until now, and that's fine except, wouldn't you like to know how Mind Coaching can offer you more choice?
Exploring (in any one moment) the direction of your thinking allows you to consider, and challenge if necessary its usefulness:
Useful for resource gathering
Unhelpful for ruminating or beating yourself up
Useful for planning
Unhelpful for creating anxiety
Useful for creative thoughts
Unhelpful for destructive thoughts
Let us show you how to have more deliberate input when your brain tries to trick you into feeling less than good. Our next Me Room workshop is a Me Day on Saturday 17th September 2011
Tip! This tip for dealing with customer complaints is a regular favourite in many of our business trainings - Feel, Felt, Found, Find:
FEEL - Identify with the emotion of the complaint, but not the complaint itself (I can see/hear that you feel disappointed)
FELT - Distance them from the intensity of their thinking about it by offering a different perspective (other people in this situation have felt similar to this at first )
FOUND - Suggest others have found a solution and even suggest your preferred outcome (one man found a cool solution to the situation when he ...)
FIND - Future pace their thinking towards a finding a new outcome (I think you will find things ... (much improved) next time)
Discover more tips and learn simple techniques to help you reduce internal and external conflict in the workplace. Our next MePro workshop is a Stress Less day on Friday 30th September 2011
This game is called 'What would they say
about X (behaviour)?'
Another child in your class
A fly on the wall/alien
Someone very critical
Someone very positive & encouraging
Allow the child to explore different perspectives and be still with their findings. It is best not to judge their responses or ask them to defend their thinking or to interpret results. Insights happen when the brain feels safe to explore. Insights build confidence and help keep behaviour separate from identity.
Our next Happy Brain day is Confident Kids on Saturday 5th November 2011
Our friend and colleague Tony Wrighton has his latest book Persuade In A Minute published this month by Virgin Books, priced £5.99 - and we love it!
Here's a sample "We Brits love a good fundraiser. It seems every other day that somebody is raising money for some deserving cause. Sadly though, most people collect a fraction of the money they could raise, if only they approached it slightly differently. So I decided to make it one of the chapters in my new book - Raise more money for charity than you dreamed possible. Whether you've got a sponsored walk/ride/cycle/trek/swim follow the steps below and watch the cash roll in.Check out Tony's website: www.tonywrighton.com
Our friend and colleague Lucy Winter has offered us some great nutritional tips this month in preparation for joining us at several of our workshops this autumn. Lucy is a specialist in Human Nutrition and a Personal Trainer based in the north east of England. Check out these top tips about turkey and other stress relieving foods:
Omega 3 fatty acids have been shown to benefit our mental wellbeing by reducing stress via improved brain functioning and by regulating our hormonal systems. Why not eat more fish or sprinkle flaxseeds onto cereals, salads or soups!
Replace your mid-afternoon snack with nuts such as walnuts and almonds. These contain B and E vitamins, which have antioxidant and stress relieving characteristics.

There's a saying about success that goes something like "The average person works IN their business; the successful person works ON their business - and the super-successful person works on THEMSELVES as much as on their business."
