02 Nov You Are What You Think You Are
The difference between leading a successful or unhappy life depends on how you perceive yourself.
Sometimes our unconscious mind holds us back as it thinks that is what we want.
Many of us ‘presuppose’ something to be true and therefore act on that ‘presupposition’ not realising how wrong we can be.
Here is where Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) can help people become better versions of themselves.
Neuro refers to neurology, linguistic refers to language and programming refers to how that neural language functions.
Using NLP techniques can help you gain control of your mind, your emotional state, and your life.
Veronica Shepherdson has been an educator her whole life and knows the benefits of NLP.
In fact, she developed the NLP for Academics with help from the American Board of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (ABNLP).
The founder of Global Oak Tree Scholars (GOTS) will make it a point that all teachers, or coaches as they are called at GOTS, will have the NLP for the Academics certification from ABNLP in addition to their other qualifications.
She says the NLP is all about finding the real you. Your unconscious mind only does things because it thinks that’s what you want.
“There is a saying, the conscious mind is the goal-setter, and the unconscious mind is the goal-getter.
“The unconscious mind acts or reacts to what it thinks you want. But once we learn to master our unconscious mind, it will be easier to obtain our goals,” says Shepherdson.
NLP is also good for dealing with students, especially those who are termed ‘troubled’ as it helps you see what is not in front of you.
“Every behaviour is appropriate in some context. You should learn and understand why a person is doing what he or she is doing.
“Communication is key. Sometimes the response we receive is the result of us not communicating what is it we want,” adds Shepherdson.
She says it is important to open up to students and learn what is holding them back.
“Only then can we move forward. Trust is very important.
“A basic skill about NLP is being clear about what you want, assessing all the possible outcomes and acting in a purposeful way of ensuring your goal is achieved.”
