Second, we would like to dedicate this work to two Magicians who further pioneered the NLP Model: ‘Tim Hallbom and Suzi Smith And third, we would like also to acknowledge the numerous other untiamed NLP trainers who have likewise extended this field, and those who will continue to do so, Preface Welcome to “Solution Land!” Swing the doors open wide and step right up to the next level of helping both yourself and those you choose to assist to a double portion of the most powerful and dynamic changework and action strategies known to mankind. Herein lies a wealth of resources, strategies, and skills that will assist you, the agent of change, in making your life more powerful, pleasurable, and productive than you thought possible. What you will find within these pages will enable you, the NLPer, to effect deep and pervasive change and transformation in yourself and others from the inside out. How many times have you asked yourself, “Just how can I help myself or another to really attain a better or higher quality of life, to achieve the wants and needs, desires and dreams that are possible in life?” How often have you searched and sought after techniques, skills and strategies to do just this?—those tried and proven to work, My search for answers has led me to study many different technologies and the developers who created them. Originally, 1 began seeking an understanding of problems and what caused the problems. Later, it became clear to me that what I had true interest in concerned solutions, not problems. 1 wanted to know what actions a person could take to make improvements, “additions and editions,” in their lives. What I found along this path to what Tcall “Solution Land” was the field of Neuro-Linguistic Programming—NIP—and its trail of resources, strategies, and skills, Yet, had difficulty in finding a clear and precise handbook, a guide, that would provide me with the essence of what we now recognize as NLP. Iwas seeking a work that made the key distinc tions empowering me, the helper or the “helpee,” to have ready access to sequential solutions when I needed them most. In this work you will access strategies and skills with which to launch and accelerate your results and accomplish what you may not have even thought possible—real and long-lasting, pervasive improvement in quality of life, change, not as a result of talking about what you want or don't want, but “Taking Action” to make it happen!
