Our brain is an amazing organ and everything in your life, whether it’s business or relationships, should start in your brain. Today, I talk about NLP and LP (neuro linguistic programming) and how we use the basic language of the mind to consistently achieve the results we want in life. I like to call it the “lost user manual to the human brain”, because many of us don’t realize how powerful our brains are and how amazingly they can work.
I picked up these three brain hacks at my NLP training and I wanted to share them with you. Be prepared to hack your brain!
“Our mind is a meaning-making machine. We’re always trying to put things into a neat puzzle. We’re trying to fold it away and make it fit in our mental model of the world. And sometimes we take things and we blow them out of proportion.”
In this episode Avani talks about:
If you’ve got something on your mind, get it out on paper. It doesn’t matter what it is. Take a pen and journal about what’s bothering you and what you want it to look like in the future, and specifically, what kind of feelings or sensations you’ll experience once it’s resolved. Write this as though it has already happened and you’ll feel a lot better about the situation.
We all have those days that just plain suck. The ones where you want to hide under a blanket and not come out. That’s a low vibration thought, and you need to re-tune to have high vibration thoughts. Don’t be overwhelmed. You can do it incrementally, little by little, and have successively higher vibration thoughts that will get you feeling better.
When you get in the habit of asking yourself good questions, you can quickly pivot and re-frame situations. A great question to ask yourself when you’re in a state of frustration, sadness, anger, etc, is “how am I making this a problem?” Sometimes we’re making something a problem when it’s actually not problematic. There are a lot of tough, great questions that you can ask yourself to re-frame your mindset and get back in the game.
