NLP from the Heart

On my NLP journey, I have come across some truly inspirational people.  From those involved in the early beginnings of NLP to those who are, like me, fledglings on their first exploratory flights.  All, in equal measure, tell stories of how NLP made a difference in their lives giving them confidence, self-belief, well formed outcomes, strategies to help with work, illness…life…   They generally appear to have one thing in common…

It seems to me that the person telling the story may have a limiting belief…that their story is unremarkable and not worth telling.

I have spent 5 years listening to the NLP Community share their stories... how various phobia vanished, how wellbeing was enhanced or increased and how projects they worked on transformed the accepted “norms” in society into the exceptional and the extraordinary...  

Every time, through laughter, tears or, in many cases for me, a short, stunned silence, I plead with the narrator of that story to write it down and send it to us because, whilst it is just ‘another day in the office’ from their perspective, to someone else who may be struggling, that story could be the difference that makes a difference...and a route to finding an NLP solution for their challenges.

So often, I hear these inspirational stories and I really wish the storyteller would understand the impact their words have on me and on so many others…and what a huge difference they might make if those words could be shared more widely with others…

My pleas, for whatever reason, are often ignored!

So, how about this as a reframe for you? 

We are collating these stories to put into a book that we intend to publish, called “NLP for the Soul”…

We have good reasons to do this:

  • It provides strong narrative evidence of the positive benefits NLP can have in different circumstances.
  • It provides the NLP community with reference points for their work and inspiring examples to share with their potential clients.
  • It gives a series of connection points for the general public to understand how NLP might help them with their many and varied challenges.
  • It might be the difference that makes the difference…
