NLP Practitioner Certification Program – Can Transform Your Life

From Nobody to Somebody

There are many people in the world who have transformed their lives by taking a NLP Practitioner Certification Program or by having coaching with a well-trained NLP Practitioner.  Anthony (Tony) Robbins was born Anthony J. Mahavorick lived in a small low-rent apartment in the Los Angeles area during his early twenties until he was introduced to NLP, Neuro Linguistic Programming, and trained with NLP co-founder John Grinder.  Life surely has not been the same for Tony since his training, I wonder how much a NLP Practitioner Certification Program can transform your life?

From Gas Station Attendant To Hollywood Icon

Did you know Client Eastwood, Hollywood icon well known for playing a rebel cop in Dirty Harry, use to dig swimming pools in Beverly Hills for a living. Prior to that he worked as a lumberjack, steel mill worker, aircraft factory worker and a gas station attendant.

The world is filled with many people with rags to richest stories. What sets them apart from those who struggle their whole life just trying to make ends meet?
There is no one answer to this question, but what I have learned from my many years coaching others using NLP and by  training NLP Practitioner Certifications and Master Practitioner Certifications, people are held back by their internal representations of how they view themselves, their negative beliefs and their lack of ability to communicate effectively with others. Although I have many stories, one of my favorite stories I wrote about in my blog was about a young man who struggled with major social anxiety in  NLP Coaching From Anxiety To Confidence I write about how Michael, his name changed to protect his identity, transformed his life with a 6 hour break-thru session with me over 2 afternoons. It’s heart wrenching what this boy went through for so many years and how NLP Coaching changed it all in only 2 – 3 hour sessions. Read about Michael’s NLP transformation here.

We All Have A Story

Majority, if not all, people who search out NLP Training have their own story. We seek out coaching with a well-trained NLP Practitioner or take a NLP Practitioner Certification Program for ourselves to make the changes in our own lives. We may have similar stories or our story could be completely different. The details of the story is not the problem, only the negative beliefs holds us back from transforming our life into the life we want for ourselves. The question to ask yourself is: how much are you willing to invest in yourself to transform your life?

  1. Every day I am transforming my life with NLP training. A whole new world is unfolding for me. I am now eternally optimistic, happy, confidant and objective. I don’t see obstacles, I see obstacles as opportunities. To struggle against odds and adversities and win is one of life’s greatest joy. It is not what a person achieve in life it is how far he had to come to achieve it.

  2. Congratulations Arthur. NLP training is a wonderful, wonderful way to transform your life! And I quite agree with your comments. Since I took my Practitioner Certification program back in 1998-1999, my view of the world around me changed in many ways I had not expected. I have since continued my certification levels of training all the way to Certified Trainer. Most importantly, I continue to learn new things about myself and others around me every day. I have also discovered NLP is not a ‘magic silver bullet’ that enables one to never have any more issues in life or achieve great things with utmost ease; as some NLP trainers directly or indirectly purport. Like you say, “It is not what a person achieve in life it is how far he had to come to achieve it.” Despite the many successes I’ve had since completing my NLP and other related Health and Wellness training, I continue on my life’s journey facing many personal challenges. The latest and most severe is Suicidal Depression, complicated with Post-traumatic Stress Disorder. Once I became consciously aware I was facing this challenge–my unconscious had been sending me messages for some time but I was not listening–my first thought was “how could this have happened to me, of all people, especially with all the NLP training and experience I have…how?’ As I continue to heal, I often thank my unconscious mind for asking such an important question using the key word “HOW” instead of the word “WHY”. I’m sure you will appreciate the difference in those two seemingly small three letter words. Their power, however, is by no means small…it is very large! So, as I continue to uncover all the “hows” (ah, ha…there is never just one “how”, lol) and unravel the insidious web within my internal map of the world, it is because of my NLP training, my NLP friends, and CBT sessions I am able to make the changes I need to seize this ‘opportunity’. I have indeed come a long way already, and know that there is still a long distance to travel before I reach the end of this particular part of my life’s journey. In the future when I look back, I will undoubtedly see how far I have come while surmounting those past odds and adversities, now, and with great joy knowing fully that I have “won that battle”. I will be smiling again, my soul will be singing again, I will be feeling great again, and I will be savoring that victory!

    • Thanks Kevin for sharing a snippet of your story and how focusing on the “How” rather than the “Why” with your unconscious mind has lead you to continued healing.
