Over the last four days in the UK we have celebrated 70 years of the reign of Queen Elizabeth. I have enjoyed the pageantry and the nostalgia. The concert outside the palace last night was a marvellous mix of the old and the new. And, the procession today brought back all sorts of wonderfully positive memories. I found myself transported back to a time of my early years. I especially loved seeing Valerie Singleton, Peter Purves and Peter Duncan on the 60's bus from my favourite childens programme 'Blue Peter'. In fact, coincidentally I only came across all my old Blue Peter albums yesterday as we unpacked the final few boxes after our recent move. The memories that I was instantly transported back to made me feel happy and optimistic.
In the same way, we learn with NLP that we can bring into the ‘now’ positive states we have experienced from the past. For example, any occasion in the past when we have felt confident we can re-experience in the ‘now’. We achieve this with a technique called ‘anchoring’. For the purpose of giving you an experience of programming your body and mind for success, I’m going to take you through a simple exercise to boost your energy and self-confidence. This works in an instant.
Think of specific occasions in the past when you experienced really powerful, positive states. For example, a time when you felt energised, confident, happy, motivated, powerful or successful, fell down laughing or felt totally loved. Remember specific memories, not just general feelings.
Practise this every day and enjoy the results.
