Abuse of Self What an Insult to the GREAT CREATOR who fashioned us wonderfully and fearfully in His own image that we graduate from high schools and universities, we become proficient in Languages, in music, in art and a vast travel culture but have very little understanding of the various organs and functions upon which our lives depend

PowerPoint Presentation:

It’s all up to you to discover and obey the wonderful laws upon which your own bodily happiness is based. Nothing else is so important to man as the study and knowledge of himself, and yet he knows less of himself. we find young men and women turned out of school, full of theories and all sorts of knowledge, but without the ability to succeed because nowhere along the line have they been taught success principles. - Tony Enumelu

PowerPoint Presentation:

Learn to expect success and believe that you were born to achieve. Just as the acorn is destined to become an oak. Give yourself hope and build your confidence.

They let the YEAR slip by without any special effort at self improvement, until they are shocked in middle life, or later, by waking to the fact that they are still ignorant of what they ought to know.” - Wole Soyinka

Neuro-Linguistic Programming:

Neuro -Linguistic Programming

PowerPoint Presentation:

The name Neuro -Linguistic Programming comes from the three areas it brings together. N – Neurology: The mind and how we think. L – Linguistics: How we use language and how it affects us. P – Programming: How we sequence our actions to achieve our goals.

PowerPoint Presentation:

NLP studies brilliance and quality – how individuals and organizations get their outstanding results. This teaches how we should think about our values and beliefs and also how we can create our emotional states and construct our internal world from our experience and give it a meaning. No event has meaning in itself, we give it meaning, and different people may give the same event different meanings. So, NLP says when you change from the inside then you will see changes around you.

What is NLP?:

What is NLP? NLP is the study of the structure of subjective experience NLP is an accelerated learning strategy for the detection and utilization of patterns in the world NLP is the epistemology of returning to what we have lost – a state of grace. NLP is whatever works NLP is the influence of language on our mind and subsequent behaviour NLP is the systemic study of human communication NLP is the method for modeling excellence so it can be duplicated.

The Six Basic Principles of NLP:

The Six Basic Principles of NLP YOU: Your emotional store and level of skill. You are the most important part of any NLP intervention. You make NLP real by what you do. The Presuppositions: The Presuppositions of NLP are its guiding principles, those ideas or beliefs that are presupposed, that is, taken for granted and acted upon. Rapport: The quality of relationship. Rapport is the quality of relationship that results in mutual trust and responsiveness.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Outcome: Knowing what you want. A basic skill of NLP is being clear about what you want and being able to elicit from others what they want. Three basic elements of outcome thinking: Know your present situations – where you are now. Know your desired situation – where you want to be. Plan your strategy – how to get from one to the other, using the resources you have or creating new ones.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Feedback: How do you know you are getting what you want? once you know what you want, you have to pay attention to what you are getting, so you know what to do next. What are you paying attention to? Is your feedback both precise and accurate? Flexibility: If what you are doing is not working, then do something else or try other styles.

What does NLP do?:

What does NLP do? NLP brings about self-development and change. first, you use it to work on yourself to become the person you really want to be and can be. Also, you work on yourself so that you can effectively help others. Self – development is the equivalent of putting your own mask on first. The more you know about yourself, the more you are able to succeed personally, help others and your organization. “NLP is not about fixing other people and neglecting yourself. Put on your mask first and avoid the golden handcuffs.”

PowerPoint Presentation:

When you approach change and self –development as a Corper , you need to be congruent, in the other words you need to be determined to succeed and believe in what you are doing. Be committed to making the change, so that you don’t sabotage yourself. Secondly , you need to establish rapport, in other words work within a relationship of trust and mutual influence. Thirdly , you need to establish what you want to achieve in that change. Lastly, you “future pace” that is, you menially rehearse the new change and learning. This reinforces it and means that you will remember to act differently when the time comes to test what you have learned.

Ecology of NLP:

Ecology of NLP Ecology is a concern for the overall system. An ecology check is when you consider how the change you are making fits into the wider system. Ensure that what looks like a good change in one part of a system does not cause problems in other areas. Many personal and organizational changes fail because the systems boundary is drawn too narrowly and the ‘side effects’ turn out to be major headaches. An ecology check is like checking a drug for bad side effects even if it cures the illness. As part of an NLP technique, an ecology check ensures that NLP does not become manipulative, that your actions do not lead to your gain and another person’s loss. An ecology check for yourself ensures that you do not manipulate yourself in forcing yourself into some course of action that you will come to regret later or that will hurt another person badly.

Internal Ecology:

Internal Ecology An internal ecology is when you check with your own feelings that a course of action would be a wise one to follow. External Ecology An external ecology check examines how your outcomes will affect other significant people in your life. Make a leap of the imagination and become them How will your change affect them? Does it go against any of their values? Does this matter? How will they react?

The Conscious & Unconscious Mind:

The Conscious & Unconscious Mind All change takes place first at the unconscious level. Then we become aware of it.

PowerPoint Presentation:

“The Unconscious” is used in NLP to indicate everything that is not conscious. So the unconscious is a ‘container’ for many different thoughts, feelings, emotions, resources and possibilities that you are not paying attention to at any given time. When you switch your attention, then they become conscious. Some beliefs and values remain unconscious but guide your life without you ever realizing how powerful they are. Some part of your physiology will always remain unconscious 9e.g.) the carbon dioxide concentration in the blood, how your heart beats, what your liver is doing. The more important and life – sustaining die function, the more likely it is to be unconscious. It would be very awkward if you had to remember consciously to make your heart beat, regulate your digestion or make your bones regenerate.

PowerPoint Presentation:

“The Conscious Mind” is like the rider of a horse, steering and guiding, setting outcomes and deciding directions. These then pass into the unconscious and we start to take actions to achieve them. The unconscious is like the horse that actually does the work in getting to where the rider wants. It is not a good idea to let the horse set the direction.

Outcomes of NLP:

Outcomes of NLP Success Wealth Poverty Indebtedness Confused Sick Legacy Frustrated Retired Dead

What Do You Really Want?:

What Do You Really Want? An outcome is what you want. A desired state, something you don’t have in your present state. Outcomes “come out” when we achieve them, hence the name and the first step towards achieving them is to think them through carefully. By selling an outcome you become aware of the difference between what you have and what you want. This difference is the problem. when you have set an outcome and are clear about your desired state, then you can plan to make the journey from one to the other. You become proactive, take ownership of the problem and start to move towards a solution.

PowerPoint Presentation:

When you do not know what you want, there are many people who are only too delighted to set you to work getting their own outcomes. You gladly will pock up yourself in golden handcuffs. An outcome is not the same as a task. An outcome is what you want, a task is what you have to do to achieve it. Don’t do tasks until you set your outcomes. “Problems are not solved unless you have an outcome”

PowerPoint Presentation:

Change is a journey from an unsatisfactory present state towards a desired state, which is your outcome. Note that you will need to make use of various resources to help you make the journey. What are your available resources? Present State Desired State Service Year After Service Year (Where you are (Where you want but prefer not to be) to be)


Resources Mental Strategies Language Physiology Emotional State Your Success Beliefs and Values

Personal Motivator:

Personal Motivator

PowerPoint Presentation:

“You are the greatest motivator God gave to yourself, so talk to yourself everyday” No one ever gets to the top relying on other peoples motivation. Until Mohammed Ali moved from the level of being begged to slow down to the level of being begged and encouraged to get up and fight, he lost his belt. All you need to do is to become what money is looking for, and you will begin to attract money rather than pursuing it.
