Hi, my name is Abby Eagle and in this video I am going to show you how to set a stretch goal in a way that is a bit different to how people normally do their goal setting.
In NLP you learn how to set goals not so much from what you have achieved in the past but from from what your future self tells you is possible. Pseudo orientation in time was a method used by Milton H. Erickson, the famous American Medical Hypnotherapist. It was later explicated in the NLP model (Neuro Linguistic Programming).
Tad James (NLP Trainer_ developed a procedure called, Proactive Goal Setting. Roger James Hamilton the multi millionaire who developed the Wealth Dynamics personality test also uses the same pseudo orientation pattern with great success. Roger talks in terms of your Future Self. Of orienting yourself out into the future and asking your future self what you should do - that is your future self becomes your mentor - becomes your Life Coach.
Orienting your self to after the successful completion of a goal is a method that can be adapted to achieving success in many areas of your life - business, personal, relationships, sport, etc. It is also particularly effective for those who feel anxious about the future. By orienting oneself to after the successful completion of an event one is able to connect with future resources and bring them back to now. So if you want to learn how to speak with confidence to an audience or if you want to overcome a fear of flying, then part of the solution is to take yourself (in your mind) to a satisfactory end point - and then hold this in minid when you next think of going on stage or flying.
In the film, The Secret, they have you visualise a goal. In this video you will learn some of the steps that you need to achieve the outcome.
