One Of Tony’s Little-Known Stories

0  comments

Have you started modeling yet?

If not, you’re missing out.

Modeling is the single, most important, biggest contribution NLP brings to the table.

Sad part is, very few people take advantage of it. They focus instead on a few change techniques.

That’s not where the juice is.

But don’t take my word for it. Take Tony Robbins‘.

(I assume you have heard of him. Very likely.)

In the early 1980’s, when he was just getting started in his career, Tony encountered John Grinder and started training with him in NLP.

When he concluded the program, he walked up to Grinder and said:

“I fully understand that modeling is the core activity of NLP and want to demonstrate my commitment to that practice. Where do you suggest I begin?”

John Grinder casually said: “How about firewalking?”

The rest, of course, is history.

Tony has then gone on to model outstanding performers in every area of human activity.

This just goes to show you the power of modeling.

And yet, so few people diligently work on their modeling skills and approach.

Be different.

Start spotting people who stand out by the results they produce. Then, learn the proper method to figure out how they do what they do.

At the beginning, it will be a little rough – as with learning anything.

Quickly, though, it will sink into your bones and you will understand intuitively how to do it.

So start now.
