Still Trying to Get Organised NLP Training and Making a Mind Shift Today could be all you need: The main principle of NLP is to “Know what you want to achieve“. The outcome must be able to be achieved. The Outcome must also be testable and demonstrable. Testable meaning, trying different methods in order to arrive at the desired outcome and demonstrable meaning you can repeat the method used to obtain your desired result.
Like me, you’ve probably most heard about NLP, being used by unscrupulous salespeople. If salespeople are using NLP, you most probably, won’t be able to pick it. More so than trying to change how you think the NLP sales person will a just what they say, determined on your reactions, to what they are saying. “They are not trying to change you, they will change what they say, in order to get a better reaction from you.
That’s my limited knowledge on the subject. I’m going to hand over now to someone who is an expert on the subject, and who will explain to you, how you can use NLP in your life to help you get organised. A NLP trainer and coach, Pip Thomas is our expert and writer of Using NLP to get organised.
Using NLP to get organised
Organisation is not a personality trait, a predisposition or something a lucky few genetically inherit from organised parents! It may seem this way sometimes when you’re running around, your home and head are in chaos, and others around you are calmly and efficiently going about their business. Using the NLP method, the key to being organised is not simply changing what we do, but adapting how we think. This in turn will lead to a change in how we put our thoughts into action.
Getting organised is a state of mind – if we think in an organised way, we will be organised in what we do. If given a task with a week to complete it do you set some time aside during the week in advance of the deadline, or do you put it to the back of your mind until the following week when it needs to be completed? Your way of processing the instruction will determine how organised you will be in following it.
NLP training centres on the mind as a mental filtering system. Over time we have trained our mind to filter through all the information that our senses are bombarded with on a daily basis and decide which to ignore, and which to notice. Our belief system helps us make these decisions, and this system is something you develop from childhood – if you grew up on a busy road you probably no longer notice the noise of the cars until someone else points it out to you. You have filtered it out as it is no longer new or relevant.
NLP training focuses on reprogramming our mental filtering system by adapting our beliefs, thereby generating new perceptions and practices.
NLP training focuses on reprogramming our mental filtering system by adapting our beliefs, thereby generating new perceptions and practices. Practically this could involve:
- Thinking about your beliefs –
- Which are positive, that you should keep hold of and keep using?
- Which cause you to be disorganised and should be adapted?
- Organising your thoughts –
- Before you reach the state of chaos in your mind where thoughts are jumbled and confusing sit back and take some time to organise your thoughts and proactively decide what you should do with them. Check out the link for our post on “life being a product of your desires instead of feelings.)
- Setting yourself well planned goals –
- if this week you were rushing to get the kids to school / get to work every day, think back to what you could change about the time leading up to you leaving the house, to make your morning more manageable.
- Can the packed lunches be prepared / work clothes be ironed the night before? Will going to bed earlier help you to wake up earlier and give you more time to get ready for your day?
- Motivating yourself –
- You will be training your brain to think and process information in a way that’s different to the way it has been, probably for a very long time.
- You must be motivated and determined to make it work.
The benefit of using the NLP method is that it is a long term change. By adapting all the mental beliefs and systems that were causing you to be disorganised, your mind will naturally organise itself. So you too could be the person who calmly executes all their tasks and roles in a timely and efficient manner, without breaking into a sweat!
