Steven Spielberg was born in 1955 in Cincinnati, Ohio. At the age of 13, he decided to become a filmmaker. He had always loved movies, and he thought that if he could make them himself, he could make them better. So he started making short films, and soon after, he made his first feature film, “Duel”. After that, he became very famous, and he made many other great movies.
Spielberg had always dreamed of making movies, but his parents were not supportive of his dream. He was told that he should go to college and study law. However, Spielberg felt that he did not want to spend his life practicing law. So, he decided to pursue filmmaking instead. At the age of 20, Spielberg suggested an idea for a movie, managed to get a contact, and was allowed to make a TV series for the following 7 years!
We can be like Steven Spielberg. If we want to create the things we want, we must first understand what we want. We must think about what we want, and then act on those thoughts. To do this, we must change our thoughts and actions with Optimum Performance Technologies. These technologies help us to become more aware of ourselves, and to communicate effectively with ourselves and with others. Only effective action can transform our lives.
Your mental state is something you create yourself. You can change your perspective on life, and how you interpret what happens around you. How you choose to see life will affect your success.
There is nothing wrong with failing, but there is something wrong with giving up. If you fail at something, then you will never succeed at anything else. Successful people are those who keep going even when they feel like they have failed. They keep trying until they get it right.
To become a success, follow Robbins’ Ultimate Formula. First, define your exact goals. Know exactly what you want. Then, act. Don’t hesitate if your dream is to become a success. Finally, evaluate the outcome of your actions. Are your actions getting you where you want? If not, you may need to adjust them again. You will never reach your goals if you don’t take action. Even when your actions don’t immediately produce the results you wanted, use the experience to learn and improve.
We all have the ability to become the person we want to become. We just need to start taking action towards our goals.
This can also be achieved through modeling. A way of becoming successful is to study what others are doing. You can then replicate those actions and get the same results. Most of our decisions are made using sight, hearing, and touch. If you can manage to exactly copy those actions, you will achieve the same results.
Submodalities are the smallest units of information that we perceive. To fully understand an experience, we need to know what the submodalities are. For example, if we see a red ball, we also know that it is round, smooth, and heavy. We can then combine all of those pieces together to form a complete image of the ball.
If you can understand what someone else does, and why they do it, then you can model them and become successful like them. Modeling saves time and effort to get to your goal, whether it’s financial success, a fulfilling relationship, or any other goal. Let’s say that you want to have financial stability. Find someone who already achieved that kind of success and follow their steps. If you want to be happy in a relationship, find someone who already has a great relationship and follow their steps. You can achieve anything if you model others’ behaviors. Even if you have little to no previous experience, you can still model others’ behaviors and become successful.
Training your brain
Modeling allows you to create more or less immediate success. You can train your brain to reach any goal you want through NLP.
Emotions are the driving force behind all of our actions. We feel confident when we act confidently, and we feel frustrated when we act in ways that cause us to lose confidence. Love is an enabling emotion, while fear, anger, and sadness are paralyzing emotions. When we are paralyzed, we cannot act effectively, and we will fail to achieve our goals.
When you’re feeling down, there are several ways to get out of it. You can try to cheer yourself up, or you can just accept your current situation. If you feel like giving up, you can always try to change your state. There are many ways to do this, but here are three of them.
A depressed state usually entails a slumped head and a lax body position. Take the example of an adolescent boy the author once helped who was unmotivated to attend school. His lack of motivation was visible through the tension in his bicep muscles, as well as him saying certain words to himself at a certain pitch.
When you’re feeling sad, angry, or frustrated, try to notice what emotions you’re experiencing. Are you feeling anxious? Do you feel like crying? Is your heart beating fast? If you’re feeling happy, excited, or energized, what does that feel like? Notice your physical posture, your breathing pattern, and your facial expression. You may also notice other sensations, such as tingling, warmth, or numbness. When you’re feeling calm, relaxed, or at ease, what does that feel and sound like?
You can also use the swish pattern to help you get rid of bad habits. For example, if you’re trying to stop smoking, you could use the swish pattern every time you light up. You’ll soon notice that your cravings start to fade away.
Imagine yourself doing the behavior you want to achieve.
Create an image of yourself achieving the desired change.
Finally, you need to create a trigger mechanism that will automatically send positive signals to your mind. To do this, you should say “Wooosh” out loud while doing the swishing motion.
If you keep doing the same thing over and over again, you will eventually change the way your brain functions in the long term.
Reframing and anchoring
A signal is something that conveys information. Signals can be sounds, light, vibrations, or even smells. A signal can also be an action, like a button press or a keystroke. When we hear a sound, we interpret it as a signal. We might think of it as a warning, or a request, or a command. If you see someone waving at you, you might assume they’re trying to get your attention. You might not understand why they’re doing it, but you’ll probably react to it.
When we think about something, our brain creates a mental representation of it. We then interpret this representation through our own personal experiences. For example, if I see a red car, my brain might create a mental representation of a red car. If I then think about a red car, I might interpret this mental representation differently than someone else who sees a blue car. Our interpretation of the same thing depends on our frame of reference.
The art and science of reframing allows us to overcome traumatic experiences and achieve personal change. There is two ways in which we can reframe our experiences: Context Reframing and Content Reframing.
Context reframs are a way to see situations differently. For example, if you were bullied at school, you might think about how your life could be different if you had friends. Or if you were a kid who didn’t get invited to birthday parties, you might think about what it would be like to go to a party with lots of kids.
Content reframe is a technique that helps you change how you think about a situation. You can use this technique to change how you feel about a situation. For example, if you are upset by something that someone said to you, then you can use content reframe and imagine them saying these words in the voice and tone of your favorite singer. This will help you to change how you feel.
An anchor is a stimulus that is linked to a state. For example, a flag will hold strong connotations of patriotic pride and patriotism for many people.
Anchoring is a psychological phenomenon that occurs when we associate a certain idea or concept with something else. For example, if I tell you that I am going to give you $100, you will probably think about what you need to buy with that money. If I then say that I am giving you $100 because I love you, you might feel less inclined to spend it on something frivolous. Anchoring is often used in advertising, where marketers try to get consumers to associate a product with a positive feeling.
The key is to be clear about your message. Being clear means being specific. If you are able accurately describe what you want, you will be successful.
In the modern world, language is full of fluff. Exaggerations and generalizations are common. One of the author’s conversations is an excellent example of that: in a seminar, one of his clients told him that the seminar was expensive. He responded with, “Compared with what?” Eventually through asking a series of question, he elicited exactly the thing the client wanted from the session, in order to make the experience enjoyable and worth his money
We often use imprecise words when we assume something about another person’s state of mind. We might say “he looks tired” instead of saying “his face shows he is tired”. Only lazy communicators make such assumptions.
Successful communications happen when you not only manage your words, but also build rapport with the person that you are communicating with. Rapport means entering another person’s world so completely, that they feel a strong connection with you. And since people are the most important resources to achieving what you want, being able to create rapport is an essential skill.
