hello friends today we are going to discuss outcome and ecology in relation with the neurolinguisticprogramming as we all know that outcome and ecology is very important while discussingneurolinguistic programming let us a start with ecology which is very important aspectof neural linguistic programming what is ecology a dictionary definition of ecology is therelationship between organisms and their environment this is a good concise definition but whatdoes it mean to you if applied in the context of your own life and the context of otherpeople because ecology is a kind of situation the surrounding of a person going throughsome training so it is important to know the context ofa person ah when he or she is in a particular training ecology in nlp is the study of theconsequences or results or impact of any change that occurs on the wider system ecology isthe study of consequences in nlp it is the dynamic balance of elements in any systema concern for the overall relationship between a beam and its environment the overall relationshipbetween a person and their thoughts is strategies behaviors capabilities values and beliefsnow it is important to take account of ecology so that one can a study the possible consequencesof a planned action or change and also so that nlp does not become manipulative theconcept of ecology in neurolinguistic programming touches on some interesting nominalizationslike self and other because as i said that it is a kind of application a strategy applyingto other maybe it is client or any other person so it is on on some interesting ah nominalizationslike self and other ecology in nlp can be described as the actions behaviors and attitudesthat are necessary to ensure your own continued personal well being so that you are emotionallymentally physically a stable similarly if acting as an agent of change then by way ofyour actions behaviors and attitude with other human beings you ensure their continued personalwell being that is to say that ecology means the relationship between the two person betweenthe two factors between the two target now influence or manipulation as i said thatneurolinguistic programming cannot be a manipulation as we generally find in advertisement advertisementis also a kind of ecology that persuades a person to go for that particular aspect ina way we can say it is a manipulation so the question is influence or manipulation peopleare attempting to influence us all the time in many context and situations from our parentswhen we were children to supermarket advertising trying to tempt us with pictures of deliciousand rapid apple to advertising painted on the side of commercial vehicles there areattempts to influence us all around nlp to uses some of these attempts to convince aperson but i am going to ah analyze that what is manipulation and what is influence andwhat ecology does in terms of neurolinguistic programmingthis is the ease of globalization this is the ease of digitalization now through digitalizationone tries to influence other in maximum manner whether it is sales and marketing whetherit is in personal life so ecology is influence or manipulation that is a big question a perceivedtruth if there is such a thing is that nlp can be manipulative the application of somenlp patterns can be used to manipulate people it is obvious that nlp patterns in themselvesare not manipulative but the person using the nlp process who attends the manipulationsso to some extent it is manipulative now ethical influence is a personal choiceand of course with each individual personal regard as ethical can be an interesting subjectto explore if you are ethical whatever the mean that means and you influence people thatis fine people may indeed want to be influenced and they may want to be influenced in sucha way that the benefit from any interaction this is called do witling outcome that isjoining together like discussing manipulation and influencenow when the two person or the two interest joined together it it cannot be a manipulationso in a way we can say ethical influence where ethic is also there and in ethical way onecan influence people one can give impact on the other while impressing the other now salesand professional because nlp is very useful for business purposes for sales and marketingso if we talk of this strategy like ecology in the area of sales and marketing well itwould be fantastic and it cannot be called manipulative to great extentnow sales professional attempt to influence in all of their interactions a customer maynot know how much they can benefit from a new product the influencing process of sellingmay be something like this first create and maintain rapo ethically introduce the newproduct and all of its benefits cause the persons level of interest if yes more processuntil sale is agreed if no leave and move on because sales and marketing is more orless a kind of gimmick so when trying to persuade other because negotiationand persuasion very important part of neurolinguistic programming so while negotiating with theah customer or persuading the customer these points are very important that maintainingand creating a rapo how to establish the rapo to create the friendly atmosphere so as toimpress the mind of the particular customer so rapo maintaining is as important as thecommunication ethically introduce the new product and all of its benefitsnow we have seen a number of product come on the television screen well which is accessibleto us at every home and every product shows that it is the best now it is the salespersonthat persuade us who persuade us ethically regarding the product so ethically introductionabout the new product and the benefit is very important that in what manner you are goingto convince the customer cause the persons level of interest now you have to keep thepsychology of the person whether the person is interested in buying the product or notand if somewhere even the smallest aspect is there or interest is there to buy the productwell you can establish the rapo immediately if yes more process until sell is agreed soit is a kind of discussion and the discussion end where agreement or disagreement appearedso if no leave and move on and when there is no chance better to leave and to move onnow unethical manipulation would in this context be a continuing attempt to sell the new productafter discovering the client has zero interest this is a very difficult task if you findthat customer doesnt have any interest but with the help of your words your expressionyour gesture the gimmick word as i used you can just force the client to raise some interestto buy a particular product so it is very important to judge equality in ones life thatis the surroundings the atmosphere where the person who is a client and the professionalwho is going to persuade the client very important now nlp ecology more effective therapeuticinterventions how it is a kind of therapy ecology works with getting rid of the feelingof despising someone think about a person you despise you hate and get the feelingsthat go along with thinking about them because nlp is very important for the professionalpeople and in professional life what happened for or in a team work culture you have towork with the person whom you despise so it works with getting rid of the feelingof despise someone and there are some strategies now you think about a person you adore andfeel all the good feelings that go along with that when we love some person when we adoreand respect some person what happened what kind of feeling we develop and what kind ofatmosphere we create then you imagine each of them in one of your hands and you placethe good hand on top of the bad hand and the good person in front of the bad at this pointyou may discover that the feelings of despising may have dissipatedso good hand on the top of the bad hands means you are suppressing the idea of the bad feelingfor the person you hate you are just minimizing neutralizing the attitude the the the attitudethe the non interest i mean literally interest ah towards a person with the ah suppressionof the hand with the good hand

Now anchor collapse it is very important part of ecology so it is very important to know what is anchor collapse when we are discussingecology collapsing anchors is a powerful technique of neurolinguistic programming from whereone can used to get rid of negative feelings or emotions because neurolinguistic programmingis a kind of training that gives relaxation to the nervous system that gives a commandover the nervous system and naturally through this command through this training peoplewho are indulge with this programming may get rid of the negative feeling or negativeemotion if there is a negative state of mind one wants to get rid of such as anger worryor annoyance he or she in the right place i mean the very casual question if you askedtoday what is your problem well i am short tempered i i am very perturbed mentally iam not relaxed because of the work pressure because of the competitive world because ofthe self interest of the people surrounded by so this anchored collapse as part of nlpgoing to help in such a big manner the great thing about collapsing anchors is that onedoes not just get rid of a negative emotion he she replaces it with a more resourcefulstate to such as relaxation confidence happiness or laughtersuppose you are suffering for some kind of complex some kind of anger for somebody betterhow to do that you never allow that kind of thought to enter into your mind you restrictthose thought to come to your mind and the more you do this practice slowly graduallyyou could be able to find yourself in a state of confidence and relaxation this means thatwhen one encounters a situation that used to cause misery to someone not only does theperson avoid a negative reaction but actually one does respond very positively towards thisit is a kind of meditation to suppose i am very disturbed i am suffering from some kindof complexity i will practice to avoid to neutralize the word neutralized is the bestthe most aptest to neutralize the effect of those complexity on my psyche and if you practicenaturally one day you will find that the positive feeling is there positive vibrations are thereso anchor collapse is it is a way is a method of neurolinguistic programming that givesyou solace in other words you associate a problem context with some stimulus and a resourcefulfeeling with another stimulus and then you provide both stimuli at once making sure thenew resource is at least as powerful as the old feeling hold those stimuli until thingssettle out and things will have changed the same thing that joining together good or badjoining together and naturally slowly gradually the good will overtake the bad one and youwill find a state where you find yourself ah in yourself a change a positive changenow this process is designed to collapse the minds old way of dealing with this particularcontext and allow access to a greater range of responses collapsing the old conventionaltraditional set up in your mind that gives you a very negative feeling negative approachto life so the process this kind of process that joining together the good and the badwill give you some kind of relaxation however in a well executed neurolinguistic programminganchor collapse one will have what is called a break a state in between now break a statein between what is this breaking the state good or bad what should be done the confusiondilemma so what is required through this process breakingthe state that is already there in your in in somebodys mind in other words in betweenanchoring the negative problem response and the positive resourceful feelings one willget the client to think about something else he she will break the negative state beforeanchoring the positive one even in through the hypnosis therapy one can do this forcingthe mind of a person to get out of that feeling that hurts him or her that gives a negativefeeling to him or her and in this process of hypnosis he or she speaks out and thenit is the breaking a state that gets you cleaner more distinct anchors and makes the wholeprocess more precise and effective and this is how one may get the very attitude of relaxationand comfort now collapsing anger anchors how one preparedfor this particular a strategy the first thing to do when collapsing anchors is to definethe negative state to be collapsed this is the first action the first a strategy howto collapse the negative state try and choose a a specific scenario which causes you torespond negatively as it will be more effective that way yes you have to go for a particularlya state where you can break that negativity choose a memory of a particular colleaguewho angers you at work a specific part of your day that really annoys you disturbs youor the way you respond if you come home from work and your housemate has left the placein a tip for example i am sure an appropriate reaction will come to your thought yes i meansome kind of ever send some kind of disturbance will occur and that come to your mind onlyso positive a state must be stronger than the negative state so how to do that choosethe positive state you would like to install instead good a states for this include happinessrelaxation and over wearing fits of laughter again choose a specific time you have beenin that a state or for best result choose a few example of a time you have been in thisstate and and one will anchor them all together in a minuteso choosing the positive a state is also one of the important strategy how would you liketo install this because there is a kind of tussle between the positive and the negativeand it is definite that positive attitude will be a stronger than the negative attitudeso positive estate must be a stronger than the negative state if it is applied in thebest manner now collapsing anger anchors said the anchorsfirst anchor the negative state what is the negative state there should be portrait thatshould be designed by rubbing the thumb finger of your left hand together whiles you relievethe memory this is a kind of action rubbing the thumb and fingers of your left hand togetherwhiles relieving the memory memory the bad memory the negative memory make sure thatyou are fully associated when you do this fully associated means that you are totallyabsorbed with the feeling not i mean the proper concentration distraction may not give youthe final result or the desired result so make sure that you are fully associated whenyou do this which means sheing seeing the memory through your own eyes feeling whatyou felt and hearing what you heard next break a state by doing something elsefor thirty seconds sing a hymn prayer write a poem dance whatever you like you feel comfortableas per your choice now test your anchor by rubbing your thumb and finger together ifthe anchor has worked you will feel the negative a state come back break a state again no needto overdo the negative side of this you have to move very a strategically with great planningwith great devotion because you have to a state the break and in one attempt it is verydifficult to break the a state so repeating it again and again with great concentrationmay neutralize the effect of the negativity now collapsing anchors time to collapse howmuch time it take to collapse your anchor fire of the positive and negative anchorsat the same time by rubbing the thumb and fingers of both hands together the next thirtyseconds two minutes of your life are likely to seem a little odd when you do this yourbrain is starts to integrate the two different states the good and the bad negative and thepositive this we feel a little strange at first almost like an internal short circuitin your brain which we caused you to feel a bit of mild confusion yes i mean this isvery very tough to conquer your mind because thoughts are coming to your brain to yourmind but which thought what kind of thought you have to take you know forward you haveto decide so the the kind of tussled going on and thatis why almost like an internal short circuit in your brain and which may cause you to feela little bit confusion which one is important as you keep holding the anchors however youwill soon break clear of all negative feelings and start to feel the full power of the positiveemotions when you feel that the anchors have collapsed that is you feel good as the negativeanchor vanishes keeping hold of positive anchor for another five to ten seconds like it isyou are feeling even you can decide that what kind of state you have good then you haveto continue with it five ten second more it is not something that then and there you stopmaybe again you will get the negative anchor in you

now ecology check that is very important because ecology breaking the state the good and thebad in your client now whether the hundred percent return is there or not that is importantand ecology check is simply checking to see if the desired result of a technique willwork out in other areas of a persons life as an example if someone wanted to exercisetwo hours a day because they want to look great how would that affect their health theircurrent relationship their finances etcetera that is a big question that is a check whetherit is going to make any change in the health or in the financial life economic in lifein the personal relationship that need to be checked in your office they might be perfectlyfine with the working out two hours a day but the context of personal relationship mightnot be active in their mind at that time in shorts they might not be thinking about itit is your job to bring that up and help them get whatever new behavior they want to workin other context of their life what is good about bad feelings very importantto know so what is good about despising people what purpose does pain or negative serve wellone such purpose is to warn us giving warning if we have a physical injury the pain canhelp keep us from injuring ourselves further at the same time same thing is true of negativefeeling about a person if we have experienced hurt from a particular type of behavior andwe feel some of that hurt when we come in contact with someone similar it can steerus away from that person and that can be good in other words there may be a good reasonto despise or feel other negative emotions about a person if we simply take the feelingaway our warning system will not be as robust and we may get taken advantage of so thatis potential ecology problem now here is what will happen so if you dothe technique one of three things will likely to happen the client wont feel right doingthe technique and there will be his assistance the client will do the technique and it willwork but the client will be less protected the resourceful feelings of love and adorationwill help the clients to a more balanced way of acting where they dont despise anymorebut they are still conscious of any danger but adoration may not be the best stage inwhich to receive a warning how to better ensure ecology once i had abad sunburn and couldnt get to sleep because of the pain the pain was serving two purposesfirst to impress upon me the importance of taking better care when i am in the sun andsecond to keep me from sleeping on my back and rubbing the burned skin but that painwas keeping me from sleeping and thus from healing quickly so i negotiated i made somepromises to myself about taking better care i installed a strategy of an auditory warningwhen i was out in the sun so that i had protection ever even if i did not have pain and i askedmy pain to only come in if i rolled over on my back when i could make the sun burn wordsit reduced the pain by quite a lot and was able to sleep and get better the process wasthis figure out what purpose the pain served create other less painful ways of servingthose same purposes exchange the pain old behavior for the new behavior or increasethe range of potential responses at least we can use the same process with people wedont like or even despise we figure out what purpose to despise the person serves we createother more comfortable ways of serving the purpose we use an anchor collapse or anchortechnique to exchange the old behavior for new behaviors or we at least increase therange of choices in those situation the role of awareness in my opinion adoringsomeone is not a greatly aware state i try to ignore a persons flaws when i adored themso that is not a state i personally would use to collapse the feeling of despising someoneresource a states often have lots of awareness and we call sensory equity built in we allhave known people who we know are making a bad decision but they just dont sense whatwe sense the same is true of ourselves in context where we are not resourceful we donthave as much access to our own awareness itself to a more aware state can help us solve ourown problem how to we saved to an our a state in a particular context we can train ourselvesto do it automatically with an anchor collapse now what other a state might help ensure ecologyif the person being despised is dangerous in some way you might ask the client or yourselfif you are doing this on yourself in what context do you deal with danger effectivelyand appropriately for some people that might be how they act when they are near a hot testoi am pretty good around steaks but that might be a terrible context for some people whenyou find a good danger context check to see if it has good awareness built in if so associatethe person into that context and anchor the feelingsnow if you believe that everyone should love all creatures of the earth you can add a feelingof love up in there and is take it on the top of the anchor you just said the increasedawareness should be there though just because you love all creature doesnt mean you aregoing to pit a dangerous snake does it now that is an anchor you take in to collapsethe feeling of despising someone what about resentment what if you or a client resentsomeone and you are tired of carrying the resentment around it is the same sort of situationfigure out what negative consequence that resentment is protecting you form from finda context in which you deal with that some type of negative consequences well and anchorthat awareness emotional state use it for an anchor collapse again this same processcan be used for just about any negative emotion a lot of direct suggestions hypnosis techniquedont account for ecology if you just suggest that someone is stopped is smoking ah thatis not necessarily ecological if we explore the benefit of smoke smoking or any otherpattern and find other ways to help get those some benefit that adding ecology and yoursituation have a higher chance of success so lots of nlp processes ah have ecology checkbuilt in if you run across a process that does not have it you can borrow one from thosetechnique in six step reframing you basically check by asking if there are objections goinside and ask there is any part of me object to these new choices if you get any kind ofsensation sensational image or feeling communicate with it find out what is the after and includethat into your own solution so you can also ask the client to think about how the changewill affect the major areas of their life social relationship financial and healthnow the ecology as a meta state it is very important to know because the term meta wasderived from batson and his associate researcher it essentially refers to a stepping back toa take larger perspective and conceptually moving to a place above and beyond and immediatemessage or context so that one can think about it more clearly and as a meta domain itselfneurolinguistic programming is full of process for going meta from timelines to belief totrance language the most impactful interventions involve a going meta process the meta functionis that important it also plays a key role in another uniquely nlp phrase namely runningan ecology check is it balanced or out of balance is it healthy or unhealthy does itenhance life or does it create limitations does it empower a person or does it createthis empowerment does it increase resourcefulness or it resourceful does it bring out our bestor sabotage our effort so we run an ecology to avoid repeating whatdoes not work and quoting the famous einstein quip the originator of the pattern suggeststhat from a systems point of view if you keep doing what does not work all the while hopingfor a different result we have just accessed a form of insanityso a higher level self referential state is that does this taught belief value attitudeemotion behavior or way of communicating serve me well does it enhance my life does it moveme forward toward my desired outcomes does it limit me in any way does it empower a disempowerwhat effect does it have upon my relations with otherso these evaluations and questions about our estate occur from a very higher state a stateof interest curiosity mindfulness observation etcetera and we move there in order to checkthe ecology of a certain piece of consciousness or behavior in relation to our health careerrelationship family culture etcetera so the concept of meta correspondence withthe first and original neurolinguistic that alfred korzybski conducted in nineteen fortysand as the first person to coin the term neurolinguistic and neuro semantics he founded the generalsemantics movement and that was before the term meta had been developed so he describedthe leveled these processes in a different waynow it is about the ecology and the various states to check ecology i hope and i am surethat friend you must have understood that how to develop a positive attitude while learningthe nlp programming and how to check that whether the negative state has been neutralizedin yourself or not thank you very much
