Self-Improvement - There Is A Secret Equation That Guarantees Big Success
For most people, the boulevard to personal transformation and self-improvement is a longand winding street filled with complicated barriers. Drug companies in particular havecapitalized on and created immense fortunes because of the elusive search for the "MagicPill" that will make all of your dreams come true. As it turns out, there is a secret formulafor success, and it begins in the subconscious mind.One of the presuppositions of NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) is that "there is apositive intention behind all behaviors." And based on that law, when it comes tosuccessfully eliminating negative behaviors, there is an equation that we must keep inmind. I'll let you in on the secret formula in a minute. But first, I have a riddle for you tosolve.Riddle: A holy man made his son drink lye, which burned out his voice box. What was thepositive intent behind this action?If you are like almost all of the clients who have visited my office since 1978, you'll saysomething like: "There's no positive intention behind that behavior." But you would be100% in error. To answer this riddle, you have to detach the behavior from the positiveintent of the deed.The minister's son was cursing. And the preacher believes that if his son curses, his soulwill be condemned to Hell. So the answer is that the preacher was burning out his child'svoice box so that he couldn't curse. By doing so, he was saving his child's soul from beingpredestined to suffer in Hell.The secret formula for successful change usesNLPand works as follows:We must always value the positive intent behind every behavior. If we have an impulse toapply a behavior that we do not like, we can quickly get rid of the urge to use that behavior.What we need to do is to find another behavior to substitute in its place. To be successful,the new behavior must be as available and efficient at accomplishing the same outcome, butbe more consciously acceptable. This is called a REFRAME.When clients come into my office, one of the first things that I do is to take a thorough casehistory. Let's say that they come to me and ask me to help themeliminate a weightproblem. Conventional wisdom tells us that the two main reasons that anyone eatsexcessively are: (1) for relaxation and pleasure; (2) because eating can be a conditionedresponse. For example, if a person eats while they are working on a computer, they willdevelop a conditioned response, and thereafter, every time they work on a computer theywill get a craving for food.However, the above answer only takes into consideration the possible positive intentionbehind the eating behavior. What if they also have another behavior that is concerned inthe equation? Case in point: What if being overweight is also a behavior for this person? Ican hear your mind grinding right now as you think, "Being tubby isn't a behavior, what areyou talking about?"Sorry but you could be completely incorrect. Here is one common textbook example thatwill clearly illustrate the fact that being tubby can be a behavior. It can be a behaviorbecause it can accomplish positive outcomes.Example: A woman falls in love. Her boyfriend breaks up with her, and her heart is broken.Her unconscious mind wants to protect her emotionally and prevent her from having herheart broken again. So it motivates her to get tubby to keep her out of relationships. Thatway she will not get her heart broken again.
