The Fastest Strategy
To Learn And Master NLP
This is the most important page on this website. Please read this entire page because I’m going to give you the strategy right up front.
And after you read this, please take a moment and really think about what it means.
This is the crucial difference between what we do and what everyone else does, and it is why we develop NLP skills faster than most other NLP students.
It will work for you too - absolutely guaranteed. I know this because I've been helping students develop their NLP skills since 2007, when I first started dailyNLP.
Here's what Fatih Kose had to say about this work in a comment he sent me:
Actually Martin, now I realize, this wasn’t about someone knowing something better than I do. It was all about me having my own opinion about it, me having an opinion about my own… And for the last years I haven’t felt what I feel right now! A sense of freedom and strenght! You know I’ve been to many coaching session (14 hours to be precise) with NLP Coachs, they didn’t even get close to the what I wanted, and I lost a whole lot of money. And you just asked 2 questions, and I feel wonderful!! I’m really excited about how I will react when someone disagrees with me tomorrow… I can’t wait for someone to disagree with me! :-)Thanks so much man.
NLP Master Practitioner
Ok, here goes… that strategy:
We practice every day - repeat, EVERY DAY - the fundamental NLP skills we learn from books, videos, websites, and live trainings in the real world.
In fact, we seldom need to spend on expensive new training. Instead we perfect the distinctions we acquire through real world, hard core practice.
This results in us being able to learn:
- every single skill we need
- with complete confidence.
Seriously, STOP and think about that for a second
It’s profound, right?
Imagine being able to naturally develop your NLP skills, knowing they'll be available at the snap of your fingers, right when you need them.
No one focuses on this.
I'll explain the difference with a recent example...
Here's me on stage at a recent conference.
I was doing Q&A at the end. One of the participants was telling me how he was at the Master Practitioner level and still liked to participate in at least two refreshers a year.
I asked him whether he felt comfortable working with BELIEFS.
"Of course," he said.
"Interesting. So what's the first thing you do when you want to change a belief?" I asked.
"I ask the person I'm working with to visualize the belief," he responded.
"And is the person generally able to do that or do they usually need clarification?"
"Generally, the person asks me how they're supposed to do that. So I tell them to just do it spontaneously, the first way that comes to mind," he said with pride.
"Okay, so when someone hears that instruction, it generally doesn't sound at all natural to them, right?"
"Umm... yeah, I guess it doesn't."
"Which means, it's highly probable that people don't usually visualize beliefs because they DON'T USUALLY SHOW UP IN THE VISUAL REP SYSTEM, yes?"
"Err... I've never thought about it like that. Yeah, maybe..."
Let's recap quickly to find out what happened to him...
- He went to Master Practitioner training.
- He learned a belief intervention that starts with visualizing the belief.
- He keeps doing it non-stop even though it doesn't make sense.
In contrast, here's what I (and my clients) do...
Any time we have to work with beliefs, we know from the get-go that we're dealing with auditory digital INTERNAL representations. There's a voice saying words to the person we're going to help.
How do we know?
Simple. Beliefs are linguistic constructs. They can always be expressed in words. If not, it's not a belief. It's a sensory association, or what we call an anchor.
And of course, we work with anchors DIFFERENTLY than we work with beliefs.
So here's what we do...We ask the person we're working with to identify what the voice is saying and where the voice is speaking from. They can usually do this naturally and effortlessly.
And here's what happens next...
That person plays with and explores new ways of hearing that message in their mind. Within few minutes, that disempowering belief has ceased to paralyze them. Usually less than 5 minutes.
That's not a typo.
You can do the same (or similar).
It's not so much rocket-science and magic as it is about building NLP skills in the real world, outside of seminar rooms, through a consistent practice protocol.
I'm only certified at the NLP Practitioner level. I mean, that's the lowest level of formal NLP training. So the fact that I could pull that of was pretty unusual.
And here's what happened when I sat with Jim for an hour to help him understand how Meta-States work.
Martin is a master at taking the most complex concepts of NLP and explaining them in simple terms. I'd been trying to figure out what Meta-States were and how they worked for a few months. In less than a half-hour with Martin, the lights turned on and I was able to use the patterns.
No more issues. Hasta la vista.
That happened in less than an hour. He'd been cracking his head on the topic for too long already.
If you're interested, I want to show you behind the curtain how I approach NLP skill development from a practical level, and how I help other students to build skills like the ones I've mentioned on this page.
DISCLAIMER: On this page I reveal some of the results I’ve achieved by developing NLP skills through practice. And I hint that our students and customers also achieve similar levels of results from using my systems and methodologies.
Please understand that I am absolutely NOT implying that these results are typical and that you’ll also develop those skills. Such a claim would be ridiculous—especially considering we’ve (probably) never met, and I don’t know you, your level of NLP knowledge, your commitment to practice, or anything else about what you do.
