When I first tried NLP, specifically the Swish technique, I didn't expect much. But lo and behold, it works like a charm! I was blown away. Specifically, I had some recurring negative memories. With the Swish technique, these negative memories vanished literally within 2-3 days. That's all it took. I do still sometimes think of those things - but when I do, they seem so far away, all blurred, "small" in size, "black and white," and without any emotional charge.
So then I decided to look more into NLP.
I LOVED this book! I got so much value out of it!
The way the book is structured:
1) First, Richard details the various NLP techniques.
2) Then, he goes on to show how to tackle various common challenges and desires, using these techniques. He groups these into three groups:
a) Getting over things (e.g., getting over fear and anxiety, getting over bad memories);
b) Getting through things (e.g., through habits and compulsions);
c) Getting to things (e.g., getting to make more money, meet people, etc).
As a side note, I'd like to comment on the "spinning" technique. Richard uses this pretty much in every section of the book. I see in the comments that some folks struggle with this idea and don't feel any "spinning." I was in the same boat. At first I did not feel any "spinning" at all and just couldn't get it. But then I got it! Richard explains (in the section about fear) that sometimes the tension gets so tight that it is not "spinning" - it's like if you screw something in very tightly. It just feels tight and stuck. In that case, he recommends trying to imagine "spinning" it one direction, e.g., clockwise, and then the other direction, - and see how it feels. Once I did that, I totally got it! Basically, if I try "spinning" the tightness of, say, where I feel the stress in one direction, it makes it feel worse, to the point of almost physical pain. But if I imagine "spinning" it in the opposite direction, then it feels so much lighter, freer, etc.
Very practical. Another thing that I want to point out is that various personal growth gurus all have their own voice, so does Richard. I really like and relate to his approach: it is easy going, with humor, lighten up type of approach. He also emphasizes that it should not take long to tackle problems, he believes in quick and efficient solutions. In other words, don't get married to your problems! Move on! :)
P.S.: In the recommended further reading list, Richard recommends books by Paul McKenna, another personal growth guru. I decided to check those out and was blown away. Paul McKenna's books are awesome, he is now one of my favorite authors! E.g., Change Your Life in 7 Days (I Can Make You) and his other books.
Having experienced the fundamental exercise of "spinning", this book is a huge resource for me and very effective. I'm curious if the average reader will get the same experience from just reading. Remember to "double" the good feeling...then "double" them again... and again.
This book is a lot of work. You can read through the book quickly, but must go back and do the exercises that apply to your life.
This may be the best self help/personal improvement book ever published.
Through Bandlers help I have improved my life in a million ways, some of them are: letting go of the past, no future anxiety/worry, making good movies instead of always thinking of the bad that will go wrong. LAUGHING! Dealing with grief...My Aunt passed away just last week and I was able to link up the all of the great experiences I had with her and make it a positive event instead of something I wallow in for months.
