How do you ensure that you get the most out of any learning experience? How do you drink in the most information and store it for later use? Well, a lot has to do with your state.
From working with lots of people, you figure out that the emotional/mental state someone is on has a lot to do with what they get out of a situation. A person with a fear of public speaking is capable of feeling calm, but they could use help feeling calm in the public speaking context. Someone who smokes to relax will have less of a desire to smoke if they’re already relaxed.
In short, a good portion of NLP and hypnosis techniques help people to change their state in a particular context. Anchor collapses, direct suggestion, reframing, swish patterns — they all help people change their states. And with those different states come better performance.
But that’s after the fact. How do you be proactive? How do you choose a state for maximum performance going into a situation?
In this 5 minute video, we cover how to get into a state that will help you learn just about anything.
