A wonderful journey within

Hi, I am Dr. Navneet Kahlon. I completed the “NLP Practitioner” and “NLP Master Practitioner” course conducted by Atmabhan Academy at Lucknow, back to back in 13 days. Throughout this journey I discovered a new me. A better and complete me. The integration of Navneet’s body, brain, mind and soul, unlike what I thought, was an exhilarating process, although not an easy one! When you conquer and bypass your own weaknesses, you dig and bring out a new personality and suddenly you realize its way too overwhelming to live with this “new” “true” YOU.

“To me the gist of NLP has surfaced as a simple process of integration of our thoughts, language (verbal and non verbal) and the outcome i.e. our habits and patterns.”

nlp_mastersBy the age of six months a toddler starts understanding the words spoken to him and begins to build his own personal dictionary. As age increases the vocabulary, communicative skills and overall personality of an individual develops. Everything that is installed through our modalities i.e., our 5 senses, the VAKOG respectively, the brain uses the information and the mind creates an internal map of the given situation. This internal map plays a major role in the overall state and our behaviors. Young or old we use the same tools for receiving and giving out information, as we did as toddlers. As stated in NLP “VAKOG” allows the inflow of the information which is then processed by our communication model consisting of the filters and barriers which distort, delete or generalize the information and thus create the internal map which is acted out in the physical world through our psychology and thus our physiology.

The whole game is that how much can you refine these modalities? How quickly can you mould these into something better? How much can you perceive? How much plasticity can your brain accomplish? How many unwanted filters ( conscious, unconscious and collective unconscious) can you eliminate from your system?

Once you see your life through these polished senses, i.e. “VAKOG” and understand each and every process, you start looking at things differently and realize many other possible options. Hence a new internal map emerges and in result a new behavior is created.

As we start to understand ourselves, our sub modalities and our internal maps, we begin to perceive people around us in different light as well. NLP provides us with various tools, patterns and programs to code and decode people around us. Whatever we are aware of comes into our consciousness and is recorded by our brain for further use. We as therapists use this new awareness to understand our clients and use the appropriate tools for their betterment. For example the “Swish” method is very useful when the client is visually oriented whereas “One-word-reframing” may work better with an Auditory oriented person. Therefore decoding of a person’s basic modalities becomes necessary and it is a difficult task until and unless we do not work on ourselves.

NLP can be utilized in every sphere of our life; the 2Ps (Personal and Professional) the 2Fs (Financial and Family) the 2Ss (Spiritual and Social). I learnt that each one of us has a different yet absolutely justified model of our own perceived worlds. With this enhanced knowledge I enrich my behavior towards others by, making a better rapport or by leading them into a positive state of mind.

The simplicity and the direct approach of NLP has immersed me into the subject and as I dive into the new depths, I am continuously astonished by new breakthroughs. I have just started on this wonderful journey and my perception of the world has changed drastically. Words have a deeper meaning now. Voices have depths and ridges. Sensations have different variations. Smells are more prominent than earlier. Taste delights more now. The whole existence thrives for a balance. The value of congruence has increased manifold! NLP makes you not just a better person, but you emerge to experience for yourself, the Best Version of YOU!

Learn NLP to Practice NLP !!

The first NLP Practitioner program experience was an eye opener while the second practitioner program was more of having a clear pathway set for the transformation. Post attending the first practitioner program my journey started knowing my Inner Self, knowing things that I didn’t know, identifying my blinders and limiting beliefs which was stopping me from going ahead.

Having this Self Awareness and knowing my current limiting beliefs , I  started having the internal communication consciously to  define what are the things I want in my life and the changes I need to install within my system. Having understood my meta programs, I consciously tried changing my past time focus to being in present time.

This helped me setting short term goals for myself followed by action plans and strategies to achieve them. Now that both goals and strategies were defined , execution became much easier and  faster and so  the results were also at par. Ultimate change , I can see myself better organized in my work and more productive.

All the NLP presuppositions taught for the first time helped me understand how I can have control and focus on my thoughts, behaviour and actions. I simply started applying it in my daily life, which made challenging tasks easier to work on and come up with best possible solutions to have predictable results. ”We are incharge of our minds and therefore results”.  “We are what we think. What we think we are “ made a huge difference applying it in my life. Earlier when faced with challenges, negativity would instantly pop up followed by lot of if’s and but’s. Now,I know for sure , I have all the resources within me to bring the desired results, so my approach is  positive keeping me in a resourceful state  always.

Anchoring states was something I learnt in the 1st Practitioner program. In the  2nd program, I got opportunity to deliver a session on learning strategies for the first time in front of some 15 participants. It was a great experience giving my  peak performance. I delivered it with  full of confidence, connecting with the audience. It was well appreciated by everyone including the Master Trainers . I was elated and that moment of happiness which I experienced ,I anchored the feeling of my peak performance state.

In just about 2 weeks  time I was asked  if I could start with the introduction in Power of NLP which we launched in Pune ,I confidently told him a “Yes!!” knowing that  I had the resources within me to deliver without letting an iota of doubt bothering me. Before going on to face the audience, I just went into  my peak performance state and I was already there..Next ,all I did was delivered my part confidently , without fumbling or feeling nervous.

These are my experiences of learning NLP and practicing NLP in my life !!DSC_0052 copy

I smile hence everyone smiles

It was a humid evening of August (hot-wet-sweat), I was in nearby market with my cute little daughter. Actually, I was searching the idol/statue of Lord Krishna for the festival of Janmashthmi , which was to be celebrated the next day. During the day I have been very stressed and angry , as my boss did firing on me twice during the day; the personal finance issues were bothering me like demons; fought with my wife in morning as previous day I didn’t celebrate her birthday way she expected , the gift I gave to her was not at all impressive is what she felt.

In these states (I was not a NLP Practitioner  at that time), dwindling in my thoughts I was walking on the streets with my mind out of the body. I saw idols and portraits of the Lord Krishna marvelously displayed on the luminous show cases. The idols were made of the attractive stuff and skillfully crafted by the artisans. As I came close to the idols, I saw one thing missing in the idols i.e. smile. I stepped to the other shop, but this time also the same pattern was observed by me i.e. smile was absent & it seemed like God is tensed and stressed. For an hour, I went 10 to 12 shops, and I observed the face of Lord Krishna as dull, irksome and without smile. In past, the image of God for me especially Lord Krishna was always bright, pleasant, cheerful and blissful, but that day  God portrayed their image as exactly opposite and I didn’t wanted to to take dull, gloomy and dispirited faced God Idol to my house. At last, I entered a shop where the idols were placed on the show case made of mirror and then there I saw my complete reflection………

I was completely stunned by seeing my face in the mirror …… for a moment i was not able to see in my own eyes. One minute before, I was thinking that I will not take any idol home whose face appears dreary, gloomy and dispirited, and for that full day, I was walking, eating, talking, doing everything  including driving in FUSE (Frustrated-Useless) mode instead of FUEL (Flexibility –Useful States–Elicitation ) mode. Next moment, I got instant awareness that it is not only through my physical eyes that we are looking at the world, but something inside our mind is too deep (the hidden eyes) which everyone should embrace. If the thoughts are dark and gloomy, the images we  will form would also be dark and hence actions can not be fruitful and productive. If the thoughts are delighted and cheerful, the whole world would cheer for you including God.

The imitations (can be referred as modeling) and limitations of the actions start from you first. After acquiring the skills and concepts of NLP, I am able to understand the Power of Now; I am able to grasp the powerful journey from Fantastic (resourceful) states to superb actions; from sensory specified goals to well formed outcomes.

Our state is the sum total of what is occurring in the mind-body system (Emotional-Mental-Physical) at any given time. It is the neurological, biological, endocrine, immune and lymphatic systems working together to create a state, even stress or motivation is also a state.

Now, I love to feel good and never to feel bad. Feeling good or bad are labels assigned to bodily sensations. It is useful to be more aware of the sensations than labels. As you attain or accomplish your outcomes, the sensations attributed to feeling good will become stronger and stronger. The more congruent you are with the big picture of your life, the more you feel those good sensations. Now, I smile and God smiles, I smile hence everyone smiles.

The “Self-less” YOU

If things are not happening the way you want them to!

If you cannot take charge of your own life!

If you constantly feel somebody must come to your rescue!

If you always end up going to astrologers!

If you are always confused and directionless!

If you are always depending on others!

If you are always more irresponsible towards your own self!

Then, for sure, the child in your mind is prominent. The feeling of being small, young, inexperienced,unexposed, immature, is stronger than the feeling of being grown up and responsible.

To lead your life with absolute responsibility towards everything in life, you need to become your ‘self’.

To become ‘self’, you have to pull your focus towards you. To stretch this completely, I would profess to become mentally or emotionally, ‘orphan’. To stretch this further, feel as if you are all alone on an island.

Now, when there is not a single chance that you can share anything with anyone, what would you do?

Think of your ‘self’. Think of your ‘own self’. That’s it!

Since childhood, you are amongst people. You are surrounded by family, friends, colleagues, well wishers. You have always found a “shoulder” not only to cry but even to shoulder your responsibilities.

You have very smartly shared everything that you belong with someone or other to avoid the responsibility. May be you have sometimes crossed to limits of ‘social morality’ to share just to fulfill ‘the crave’ to get that help from others.

You feel comfortable, therefore, with people. People around you, allow you, because they love you.

But you are the creature, you neither love your ‘self’ nor you have interest in anyone else, except that ‘smart selfish motive’ of getting rid of your own responsibilities. Therefore, you keep relationships with people.

For you, “the self-less you” is great!

Now at this stage of life, may be you may not like what I am saying! It’s quite possible that you may end up hating people like me, who would only talk to you to ask you to become your ‘self’. May be you think, it’s too late now!shutterstock_96075857

Assure your ‘self’, it’s never too late! Start Now!

Happy Birthday Sachin

Daily morning I recall all the positive words that I know to start the day with enthusiasm. As a part of exercise in one of the training session the Trainer suggested us to relate/associate/remember one positive quality with one person/relative/friend/associate/celebrity you know and model him for that particular behavior pattern.

I started the routine and used to relate daily e.g. Happiness with my Mother, always a smiling face! Hard work with one of my friend whom I always see working and she never gets tired, Energy from my hubby Ashvin whose enthusiasm in any situation of Life is always infectious, so the list continues daily. I experienced that it really works.

Let’s recollect all these positive words as, Confidence, Success, Team Work, leadership,sportsmanship, perseverance, hard work, focus, determination, passion, humble, realistic,acceptance by all, Happiness, contented and satisfaction, etc and one name that flashed with all these is Sachiiiiin, Sachin, Sachiiin. The wonder on the EARTH, successful in all spheres of LIFE, A living legend……..

Happy Birthday Sachin!!

A tribute to “The COACH” for Silicon Valley – Bill Campbell

In the modern age of specialization, competition, team building and FLYING HIGH, LIFE COACH is a new sought after professional requirement in India. Although it is well recognized and established profession in USA and some of the European countries. Sharing here the role of coach in Silicon Valley.

I was amazed to understand the role of coach as I noticed a tribute to legendary mentor and coach Bill Campbell, on Apple’s website. Bill Campbell – who garnered the name “The Coach” has died on 18th April 2016 at the age of 75.

Bill Campbell was a coach, mentor, friend, guide and philosopher for many entrepreneurs,executives including Steve Jobs, John Doerr, Marc Andressen and Ben Horowitz, Schmidt, as well as new generation of entrepreneurs.

He is known as the man who kept Steve Jobs going. Bill Campbell started out as a coach to top Google executives. Bill Campbell, the talented but most modest Super coach of Silicon Valley was a mentor for leaders and whole team from Google, Apple, GO, Amazon and more.

More than a coach, he formed a personal bond with the executives he advised. He helped business houses to grow and in countless ways helped them to expand. He had a far reaching impact on Silicon Valley leaders and culture. The news was greeted with sad comments on the Twitter from all of his associates.

William V. “Bill” Campbell (August 31, 1940 – April 18, 2016) was an American businessman and chairman of the board of trustees of Columbia University and chairman of the board of Intuit Inc. He was VP of Marketing and board director for Apple Inc. and a CEO for Claris and GO Corporation. With bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Columbia, he coached the Columbia football team also from 1974-79 before coming to Silicon Valley.

Our tribute to mentor and LIFE COACH to Steve JOBS and many tech leaders!
