MODULE 15MARCH 9, 20212:00pm-4:00pm (PDT)

How To Create Strategies For Success And Plan For The Future (Using Submodalities)

During this set of modules, you will begin to learn the modeling processes for creating success and excellence that is making NLP so famous. During this set of modules you will learn that NLP is not a set of techniques; it is a methodology. (For example, “Change Personal History” is not NLP, it is a technique that was developed from behavioral modeling of people who could create new perspectives on limiting decisions they made about themselves while growing up.) As you move through this set of modules, you will learn how to create the future you want by identifying your unconscious patterns of behavior, as well as your own patterns of excellence. You will learn how to change the patterns that are holding you back, and how to build upon your natural patterns of success. Submodalities are the building blocks of thought. They are the thinking subsets of your five senses: vision, audition, kinesthetic, and olfactory/gustatory. They are how your brain codes information. You will learn how to unlock this coding and create more resourcefulness almost instantly. It takes a very small incremental shift in the structure of subjectivity to be able to make a significant change. You will then learn several powerful NLP Processes that use a shift in submodalities to create profound change.
  • Mapping across submodalities
  • The Swish Pattern
  • The Fast Phobia/Trauma Process for effectively resolving fears
  • Recoding for Motivation
  • Learning how to run your own brain: Beyond “visualization” techniques to “programming the software of your mind”
  • Disney Creativity Strategy
  • During this final set of modules you will also integrate the skills that you have been learning throughout the training.
