Accessing A Genius
Part 3
On the panel that night at NLP University’s 40th NLP Anniversary Celebration was Robert Dilts, Ian McDermott, Frank Pucelik, and Cristina Hall (no relation to Michael).
Frank Pucelik had dominated every panel he was on with his loud voice and charismatic and yet somewhat polarizing words. He also sat right next to Dr. Hall this evening. For sure, I thought, Dr. Hall was going to be nearly nonexistent among

Part 2
At NLP University this past summer I attended the 40th Anniversary of NLP Celebration, which lasted seven days. Throughout the week several world renowned trainers arrived and departed.
Dr. L. Michael Hall arrived midweek. I knew he was coming that day and brought two of his books with me to get signed.

Accessing A Genius
Part 1
I seek out many teachers and there has been one in particular who has interested me for some time. His name is Dr. L. Michael Hall. Say what you might (and many do from one end of the spectrum to the other about his work) he is the most prolific author of NLP books to date having authored more than 50.

You’re Uniquely Qualified to do….. Anything

Think about something you’re not good at that you wish you were. How would you like to be so good at it that you could teach it?
That’s the first step in being uniquely qualified to do anything. Know what you want and learn how to do it or get it and you will also be uniquely qualified to teach it.

How To Do Swish Pattern Properly

Two common mistakes with the Swish Pattern students make either because the Swish Pattern is taught incorrectly or it’s practiced incorrectly is exchanging one behavior for another and the yo yo effect.

When you’re swishing an unwanted behavior to a preferred state you want to choose a positive image that is free of context or behavior. Your positive image should be a disassociated image of an ideal you who has already resolved the dysfunctional

Transforming Negative Qualities

When you think of qualities you would like to have but don’t believe you possess or qualities you feel like you possess only sometimes it’s because you’ve sorted your experiences in such a way that you’re focusing on several examples in your experience that demonstrates the opposite or counter quality.

Transforming Intelligence with NLP

Interested in making a permanent change to your identity?
We have qualities about ourselves that seem to come and go. Sometimes I’m playful and sometimes I’m not. I can be really creative at times but in many situations I am not.
However, we also have qualities that seem to be with us no matter where we are and regardless of time. For example, if we think of ourselves as intelligent, we tend to think that

CHARISMA by Damon Cart

Charisma often comes up in NLP trainings for trainers. Some NLP Trainer Trainings are even called Charisma Training. Who doesn’t want to be more charismatic especially if you desire speaking in front of large groups of people?
But what the hell is charisma and how do you get more of it?

A Useful Approach to Learning NLP Faster Than You Thought Possible by Damon Cart

I often hear the question “What’s the best way to learn NLP?” or “How can I learn NLP quickly?” The answer I often start with and the answer I was often told is practice. It’s an answer that does not satisfy most people but it is the difference that makes the difference when it comes to people who are okay at NLP and people who are great at it.

The Solution Is Often In The Least Represented Repersentational System

I heard Tim Hallbom speak the words of the title of this article once during one of his trainings. I don’t know if he was the first to say it or if he heard it from someone else and was just repeating it, but it was something I already knew deep down and had experienced. I just hadn’t put words to it so concisely.
How I had first come to this understanding
