For ”James Bond” is a name firmly anchored to exhilaration, danger and thrills. As the words are slowly spoken it’s just like a magical trigger for EXCITEMENT and ANTICIPATION!
Human beings and every other creature on this planet are anchored to our previous experiences through our sensory recollection. We are wired to our memories and this wiring can be very positive or quite the opposite!
For When we remember our experiences through different sensory triggers we may find that we are experiencing the emotions attached to these experiences again, and again and again.
We hear a song, we inhale a smell, we taste something, and we are transported ‘back’ into the emotions attached to that original experience. it’s like a domino effect; this leads to that and so on..
Like Elephants we are wired to REMEMBER!
That is why we may say ‘I always feel X, Y Z, when I go to interview, because being interviewed reminds me of the times when I did so badly and didn’t get the job….’
It’s like NEGATIVE DOMINOES!
However we have the power to change the way we anchor our experiences and create a new response to our triggers.
Thus we can literally ‘recreate’ our experience through altering our wired reaction to our experience.
Paul McKenna, Jamie Smart, Richard Bandler, Michael Neill…all these NLP experts recommend improving your confidence through anchoring.
So here’s the trick.
1) Imagine the very best emotional state for you now, in order to deal most helpfully with the task ahead.Look back over the past when you have enjoyed this state before. and find it….
2 Now that you have found it, Really FIND the best mini second of this ideal state . CLOSE you eyes and enter into this magical MINI SECOND so it becomes real and ALIVE for you again.
3) Now pinch together your thumb and forefinger so that you HOLD this MINI SECOND for THREE SECONDS and then once you have held the feeling, let it go.
4) REPEAT THREE TIMES!!! Finding the state, holding it as an anchor, and then letting it go….
5) Now test the anchor, ‘FIRING IT’ by pressing the thumb and forefinger together and seeing if the feeling is created. If it is GREAT if not, REPEAT again so that you can capture the state.
This anchoring trick is very simple and MOST effective. And can be used to REMIND yourself of a MUCH better, more RESOURCEFUL state to be in, when YOU need it.
Remember….you can replace unhelpful emotional reactions and states with MUCH more POSITIVE states just by FIRING off anchors…
Thus you BUILD better WIRING AND RESPONSES!!!
