Most people have very little personal influence.
It is not an exaggeration to say that most people live their lives:
1) at the mercy of past programming
2) at the whim of the world around them
Living life this way is the exact opposite of living a deliberate purposeful meaningful life. Life without the ability to personally influence oneself is a life without power. This is nothing more then an old mindset.
However, when we begin to understand our operating system we claim the right to be the major effect in our own lives. We begin to decide what is allowed to impact us and how. This is a new mindset with new rules.
When we begin to understand our operating system we begin to create the circumstances that impact us rather then being at the mercy of unwanted input or triggers. This is a mindset that allows us to create the new rules of the new game.
Neuro linguistic programming (NLP) is an exciting model of communication that allows us to look at and shift how we communicate:
1) within (internal)
2) without (environmental)
NLP tools allow us to view our experience through a new lens. We can begin to impact not only our own experience in new ways, but the tenants and tools of NLP allow us to begin to have more persuasive influence in the world (and in our relationships). NLP allows us to create a set of new mindgames with new rules, on our terms.
This is very different then choosing to continue to live in the position of “being at the mercy.”
