NLP is, arguably, about creating models of behaviour; models of excellence.
It is also about creating choices.
I have heard people say to me that sometimes they have far too many choices, leading to choice confusion.
So here's a simple idea which could be called a model or approach.
Take ANY option you are considering.
Think about it in 'sensory based' terms.
Create a bright, vivid vision of what that choice/option leads to - what kind of future for you.
Then add sounds, feelings, thoughts to that internal 'movie' of the future created by that option/choice.
Spend time there in your mind; in your heart in your thoughts.
Then ask yourself..
"If I could have this TOMORROW would I choose it?"
You do not have to think about HOW it would happen. This is a MAGIC QUESTION.
If the internal response is an immediate YES, then perhaps this future is in line with your values, wishes and hopes.
If there is ANY HESITATION then it may be at some level there is a degree of resistance. It may be that the future does not match your unconscious values or attitudes.
It may be that at some level there are unconsidered 'down-sides' to this possible future.
The next step is then ..
To either move towards that desired future
Consider the possible blocks, what lies behind your hesitation.
In some ways this second step may be more likely to require the support and reflective questions of an external coach...
