Life / Personal Development
Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) is like learning the language of your own mind. Let’s make this simpler with an example.
Have you ever tried to communicate with someone who didn’t speak your language, and they couldn’t understand you? The classic example of this is when someone goes out to a restaurant in a Foreign country and they think they ordered Grilled Chicken, but when the food shows up, it turns out they actually asked for Fried Chicken.
This is the kind of relationship that most of us have with our own unconscious mind. We might think we 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 showing up, then something is probably getting lost in translation.
In NLP, we have a saying: 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 communicate what you want properly, it will keep bringing bowls of Fried Chicken out of the kitchen.
In fact, go ahead right now and think of, if there was one thing you could change, one habit you could break, what would it be?
