NLP notes part four
Utilizing your favorite hero/ heroine aka role model
1. think of one who excites you
2. see a particular goal - think of a goal they did that they accomplished by living and doing what they did. Make a mental movie.
3. step into the role - put yourself into their place, make it yours, really feel it.
4. question yourself -
what are my motives?
why did doing this accomplish that goal and why did I choose to do it?
how does pursuing this goal make me feel?
how does this goal fit into my larger mission?
5. become yourself again.

Roles are important
Your mission determines your roles, and your roles determine your goals.
" For example, a person may read a lot. However, if that person does not have an identity as a writer, he or she is not likely to learn to write by reading. A person who strongly believes " I am a writer" reads in a very different way from someone who does not share that identity. A person with a writer role notices different things than a nonwriter. A writer reads not only to get the information, a writer reads to learn how to refine the skills of his or her own writing." NLP, Steve Andreas and Chris Faulkner
Life roles - 4 primary types;
personal or family
Ex: artist, athlete, creator, discoverer, friend to self, hero, hunter, leader, learner, magician, meditator, sage, saint, warrior.
Your mission will require many different roles.
“We all are learning, modifying, or destroying ideas all the time. Rapid destruction of your ideas when the time is right is one of the most valuable qualities you can acquire. You must force yourself to consider arguments on the other side.
— Charles T. Munger”
