How To Develop ‘Mad’ NLP Skills…

A while back I saw a really cool YouTube video...

...that any NLPer would want to watch.

And the interesting thing is:

It's NOT about NLP or hypnosis or modelling.

But it is packed with value (if you know how to look at it).

In the 3-minute video, Erich Brenn is performing a "plate spinning" act on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1969.

At the peak of his performance, he’s spinning 13 plates simultaneously!

As I was watching it, I said to myself:

"That is a lot like mastering NLP. The best of the best know how to keep multiple plates spinning all at once. Same structure, different content."

For example, if you want to get ‘mad’ NLP skills, there is a lot to learn, like:

  • How to use language intentionally
  • How to listen cleanly
  • How to master your state
  • How to work with TOTEs
  • How to use the Meta Model, Milton Model and advanced language patterns
  • How to place ideas (and alter ideas) inside someone’s mind
  • How to anchor and evoke states
  • How to change beliefs
  • How to intervene and make change stick
  • How to tell stories…
  • How to pattern
  • How to model excellence and acquire skills fast
  • Plus much, much more!

You see every tool, technique and pattern in NLP has a job.

Once you know what jobs different tools are great for – you can do so much more.

For example, you can combine skills like a Jedi Master to create outcomes you want in your personal and professional life in a way never possible before.

You see, the secret to developing mad skills with NLP is not by memorising the techniques.

The secret to developing mad skills is all about knowing:

  1. What challenge or job are you trying to accomplish 
  2. Where should you place your focus 
  3. How should you put things together…

…so even complex jobs like entertaining millions of people by spinning plates can be made to look easy.
