WHAT IF? A simple two (2)-word question that can stimulate even the littlest subconscious neuron in our brain. The question, though rendered wishful and hopeful in general, could also appertain to memories of the past, situations of the present and possibilities of the future.
In Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) parlance, it pertains to the possibility that could, would and should have been. Regret is but an inevitable part of human existence but the possibilities are but as limited as your imagination.
Do not get yourself stuck in the past. Never let experience drag you towards the dungeon of misery. Do not slave yourself with the past. Instead, use the past to develop your now.
Dr. Tad James, MS, PhD came up with one of the most interesting discovery in the field of Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP). The NLP Coaching and Time Line Therapy® technique allows you to work at your unconscious level and be able to release the consequences of past events in your life. Negative experiences tend to put a halt on how you live your present and perceive your future.
Time Line Therapy® basically deals with the unconscious mind. In short, it is how you unconsciously store and realize the difference between a memory from the past and a projection of the future. Thus, behavioral change in an individual takes place at an unconscious level. People don’t change consciously; they change unconsciously.
Being able to change and replace inappropriate behaviors brought about by the past posts as a big challenge – an obstacle even for some. Accepting the past and embracing it wholeheartedly is the first step in attaining the life that you have always wanted.
