Why is Curiosity the Key Attitude in NLP and Life?/ The Key Attitude in NLP and Life
Curiosity is the key attitude that brought the field of NLP into being. Its founders, Richard Bandler and John Grinder, looked around at excellent professionals in the fields of therapy and wondered: ”What makes them excellent? What's the difference that makes the difference in their practice? What is it that they're doing which creates these seemingly magical results?”
We see excellent people everywhere. From sports, to arts, business, parenting, therapy or love - some people seem to have it in them, while others struggle. Why is that?
Perhaps it's talent. Perhaps it's in their DNA, it's IQ, EQ or some kind of special connection to the divine.
While all of these are legit possibilities, NLP teaches us how to look behind the results people produce to uncover the mechanics, the mindsets, the values and the beliefs enabling them, so we can recreate those results ourselves. Should we choose to, of course. But that requires a totally different mindset. That requires an open mind, an inquisitive attitude.
In this presentation, I will be talking about curiosity: How was it a key attitude in my becoming, how does it make us better therapists, better professionals, better humans? How can we develop an inquisitive mind and how can we utilise it to uncover and live our life mission, even if or especially when we feel lost or stuck?
Specific result: Insight into their life purpose - which breeds motivation, inspiration and clarity in decision making processes;
Framing their mission;
Optimism and inspiration realizing that curiosity is within anyone's reach and can take us a very long way.
