The goal of NLP is to help Individuals attain peak performance by improving the necessary mental skills to excel in stressful situations. It also concentrates on guiding individuals to break through the mental barriers that keep them away from performing up to their potential in all areas of life. High Achievers and Peak Performers THINK, ACT and FEEL differently from Average People. They can access and can use their mental abilities at will. With the help of this quality, they can learn faster and better and ultimately perform to their potential more often.
When both MIND and BODY works in HARMONY, a person will get the desired result effortlessly. This combination of MIND & BODY is called NEURO-PHYSIOLOGICAL.
The association of NEURO-PHYSIOLOGICAL, at any given moment, creates the STATE and to elaborate further, STATES are of two different natures i.e. RESOURCEFUL & UNRESOURCEFUL.
A State, at any given moment, is the sum total of the hundreds of processes taking place in our mind and body. It is, in fact, the sum total of our experiences that we create neuro-physio logically (brain and body).
Mostly our states occur without our conscious control. We see, hear, feel, smell or taste something and change our states. These states may be resourceful or resourceful ones.
For a sportsperson a resourceful state is the state that enables or empowers him to gain access to the inner resources or potential that are needed at that moment of time.
We call them “empowering states” or “enabling states” also. These states include confidence, joy, flexibility, concentration, creativity, delightfulness, belief, form, zone, happiness etc.
Un-resourceful state occurs basically with the hindrance in accessing the resourceful state at the neurological as well as physiological level, at any given time.
These disempowering states include fear, doubt, confusion, sadness, anger, frustration etc.
Every effort in our life boils down to ultimate “PERFORMANCE”.
If an Individual is aware of his/her state, he/she can dictate the course of the performance by attaining required “FORM”.
So, there are various NLP techniques which help an Individual to access the sub-conscious mind and get the desired result at a neuro-physiological level i.e. Mind and Body both.
