Who are you, and why do you behave the way you do?
You are the sum of all your experiences, whatever they may be, good or bad; recent, ancient or forgotten altogether. Some people may have had similar experiences to you, even at the same age as you and yet somehow you have moved on where they have not or vice-versa. Why the difference? When two or more people share an experience or event, they will each make it mean something different and that fits perfectly within their “map of the world”. Each one of us has our own map of the world based on our experiences to date. Can we change what has happened in the past? No. Can we change how we interpret the past and what we make those past events mean to us? Yes!
This is the key to NLP coaching. No matter what our past experiences have been and what we made them mean to us at the time, we can revisit them today in a safe and controlled environment and change how we feel about them.
