10 Tips to Practice NLP After Your NLP Training


The best way to master NLP is to practice, practice, and practice some more. We are Global NLP Trainers, and we practice, we cook, and we experiment every day.

1.  Do the small daily NLP tasks, which can be found on my twitter account at @globalnlptweets

2.  Don’t try to practice NLP as a whole, practice in sizeable chunks. For instance, focus for one day on matching or mirroring alone. Or spend 15 minutes a day, practicing one simple language pattern.

3. Real mastery or genius at anything doesn’t lie in being able for instance to do a fast phobia cure in 8 minutes. It is about being able to do that, and either spend the 8 minutes more elegantly, or finding several other ways to cure a phobia even if it were to take 1.5 hours. Ask yourself questions like, how can I solve a significant emotional event in the past, not by timelining but by values based exercises or metaprograms?

4. Start with full control over the language patterns, and don’t just focus on the flashy submodalities and timelining only. The latter becomes way more powerful if you speak the language patterns as your first language. What about truly developing your sensory acuity?

5. Practice NLP on YOURSELF daily, and every where you go. NLP on just clients, or books don’t make a seasoned practitioner. It is amazing how some practitioners want to work on others using NLP, and do not apply NLP on themselves.

6. Practice NLP on OTHERS, covertly as well as overtly. NLP on just yourself, or books, don’t make a seasoned practitioner. Stop being a wallflower.

7. Instead of thinking you need to go on the next level up after Master Practitioner. Why not re-take NLP Practitioner or NLP Master Practitioner with another school. At Global NLP Training we let students re-take our class free of charge, and many take us up on it. Trainers training may make you a more congruent public speaker, not a better practitioner at one-on-one coaching. There are a lot of great trainings to enhance your one-on-one skills in NLP.

8. Stop buying books (most of them are a repeat of NLP Practitioner, amazing how many times Dr. Bandler is being copied), stop attending more seminars. Start applying NLP in the real world. The best pratice.

9. Go on youtube, see how it is done, and also see…..how it is not done.

10.  If trained well, you can not, not do NLP. Remind yourself of that. Start by living true to the presuppositions of NLP, excellent way to go through life.

  1. Thanks for all of the great reminders Nikkie!  I may have to finally break down and create a Twitter account: )  I hope that you and Scott are doing well.

  2. You are welcome Jeremy. 🙂 LOL sorry about the twitter account. I had no idea what to tweet about, so I felt the daily tasks would be perfect. 🙂

  3. You are welcome!!! This is Nikkie. Are you Ron from one of the Miami trainings…..2008? Anchoring integration on sales printer toner. Body builder. And one of the few students whom I would see in the gym? We had lunch across from Starbucks (which is now a much better restaurant.)  I am lousy with last names, what group someone was in, but I never forget an individual student and their story. I hope it's you, the Ron from 2008 was cool! We have a little community together on facebook as well, if you are interested: http://www.facebook.com/globalnlptraining

  4. Hi Nikkie: ) I hope this finds you exactly where you want to be!  I noticed that Ron didn't reply yet on this forum and I know that he's even harder to reach on FB: )  So in case he hasn't contacted you I figured that I would give you a "Big Ron" update: )  You know it's Ron from the '08 class…the class that must've been one of your favorite ever, lol.
    Ron and I have kept in touch and I would say that he's doing very well!  You know him, his work ethic is as big as his heart and his faith!  That's probably why he can be tough to keep in touch with…. he's always working, hard.  I try to tell him that the whole "work" thing is overrated; )  As far as I know though he's doing very well…creating a great life for himself.
    I hope that helps,
    All my best as always,

  5. Hey Jeremy! Sooo cool! Glad you two kept in touch. That’s nice. I’d love to see him again sometime.

  8. Hello, Jason specializes in providing former students with small advanced workshops, one-on-one training or coaching in NLP. These are part of our services to former students only, and are either free or low cost. He does provide life -and business coaching services to non-students, to inquire about his pricing contact by clicking the contact button on top of this blog asking for Jason’s fees and services to non-students. Jason doesn’t provide one-on-one mentoring to become a better NLP Practitioner/Master Practitioner or NLP training, to people whom aren’t former students. We want to honor our own former students only, in order to offer value to those whom committed to training with us. It’s part of the commitment we made to them when they joined us.
