Boiling Frog

 

Put a frog in a vessel of water and start heating the water.
As the temperature of the water rises, the frog is able to adjust its body temperature accordingly.
The frog keeps on adjusting with increase in temperature…
Just when the water is about to reach boiling point, the frog is not able to adjust anymore…
At that point the frog decides to jump out…
The frog tries to jump but is unable to do so, because it has lost all its strength in adjusting with the rising water temperature…
Very soon the frog dies.

What killed the frog?
Many of us would say the boiling water…
But the truth is what killed the frog was its own inability to decide when it had to jump out.

We all need to adjust with people and situations, but we need to be sure when we need to adjust and when we need to confront/face.

There are times when we need to face the situation and take the appropriate action…
If we allow people to exploit us physically, mentally, emotionally or financially, they will continue to do so…

We have to decide when to jump.
Let us jump while we still have the strength.

Think on It !!

Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP)

 

What Is NLP?

NLP (Neuro-linguistic Programming) is the most powerful approach I’ve found for communications, change, and excellent performance.

It has been widely applied,with often astonishing results, in fields as diverse as:

  • Business
  • Coaching Sales & Influence
  • Psychology
  • Sports
  • Healthcare
  • Negotiation
  • Education
  • The list goes on…

These days, most books on personal development will include at least some NLP techniques, and it has been incorporated into most persuasion & influence trainings on at least some level. Some of the most dramatic accomplishments of the field include:

  • A fast (one session) phobia cure
  • A learnable model of the skills of exquisite communicators
  • A spelling strategy to transform the abilities of poor spellers
  • A functional model of the skills of great visionaries

One of the most profound ideas of NLP is that, if one person can do something, it should be possible to find out what they’re doing and replicate it. NLP modelling is a unique approach for identifying and replicating the unconscious skills of excellent performers (Eg. the ‘naturally talented’) then teaching them to others.

The name 

The name of the field refers to (Neuro) the human nervous system, including the brain and the five senses, (Linguistic) the verbal & non-verbal languages with which we communicate and (Programming) the ability to structure our neurological and linguistic systems to achieve desired results.

History

Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) was developed starting in the early 1970s by Richard Bandler and John Grinder, when they set out to model the work of geniuses in the field of human communication and change. The term NLP is used to describe both the approach to modelling that they used, and the powerful models of communication and change they created (and have continued to develop.)
