People take personal development training programs like NLP (Neuro Linguistics Programming) for their own respective reasons. Some want to help themselves, some do it for their family. Some want to get a perspective out of life and some are urged to help others and change lives.
But, one thing remains the same- Transformation. Everyone that enters the facade of NLP, comes out all bigger, better and brighter. They leave with the greatest gift of all time- Self-Discovery. Leaving behind reasons that deprived them of unleashing their true and full potential.
Day 1 in the NLP is the beginning and the ultimate of all the self-discovery there is.
So, what happens when NLP commences?
Our trainer and guru, Arslan Larik, ensures that everyone in the room is comfortable in their skin. He urges everyone to come out of their shells and speak, participate and share.
He achieves that by sharing his journey with everyone, which is a bumpy, yet beautiful one. It’s apparent because that’s what made Arslan Larik who he is today. While sharing his story, Larik says:
It’s okay to make mistakes, it’s okay to be broken, it’s okay to be angry, and it’s okay to cry. Because that’s what makes us human.
By sharing, he is encouraging the participants to follow his lead and be honest while sharing their stories and are at peace with their past traumas. He puts his best and most honest efforts towards breakthrough and problem-solving and Day 1 is just the tip of the iceberg.
The participants are people of all ages, coming from all walks of life. They’ve signed up for their 6 day program and come with all kinds of jagged thoughts in their minds. They’ve come searching for purpose, abundance and fulfillment in all respects. In the middle of this roller coaster ride of a program, we end up finding the best of friends, they pull each other up, become each other’s listening ear, wipe tears and help each other rise from the ashes.
Day 1 in the NLP program is a walk-through and introduction that prepares us for the days that lie ahead and for the concepts that we would learn in the coming days. Participants are trained to
- Identify basic emotions
- Identify the problem areas in self or the prospect coachee
- Plan around those problem areas, and probe so as to get a better understanding or even closure.
- Setting actionable goals to be achieved within a set amount of time, set mainly by the participants themselves.
It’s a journey everyone seeking meaning should take.
