The Amazing Job of Being an NLP Coach
Helping yourself by helping others and even making money in the process
Did you like stories when you were a child?
The best things in life are not things. It's the people we see every day; our friends, relatives, neighbors, acquaintances, classmates, work colleagues, community members, and even those who smile at you as you pass by them during your morning run. Each one of them has a story.
The immensity of fascination that the human mind has with stories like our own is incomprehensible. Learning about people, listening to their memoirs, and exploring how their minds work, can teach you the most invaluable life lessons.
Learning Morals and Teaching Some
Deriving morals from others' stories, helping them rediscover the complexity of their behaviors, exploring their psychology, and changing their mindset; is one job that nothing else comes close to. Being a Neuro-linguistic programming coach does entail all that and more.
It's not something you just SAY; it's something that you actually DO.
The Bliss of Being an NLP Coach
Being an NLP Coach is not your average work routine. It is a beautiful, deep, and meaningful connection that you develop with your clients, with the people you are helping, by creating lasting change in their outlook. To help them rethink their life, helping them gain a fresh perspective and open them up to a world of possibilities.
As an NLP coach, you have the blessing of being able to bring a lasting and effective change to peoples' lives so that they don't have to struggle like you did. It is the idea of keeping others safe from the tragedies you faced on your journey, getting to where you are today.
Being an NLP coach is a gift that keeps on giving.
Helping Others, Helps!
When asked how they feel NLP learning and practicing helped them, one thing that almost all of the NLP practitioners answer is; it changed their lives. The fact is, not only does learning about Neuro-Linguistic Programming give us a new perspective, a new map of the world and integrates our conflicting parts of our memories, it also provides us with the ability to help others which in itself is a superpower for human life.
According to a recent study by UCL helping others not only puts things in perspective for you, but it also relieves stress which helps fight diseases and ultimately brings longevity to one's life. It is good for your own self-esteem and gives you a sense of belonging and purpose.
Here are a few ways that being an NLP practitioner can help you with.
1- The incredible sense of achievement
When you become a Neuro-Linguistic Programming Practitioner, you know you have the power to bring about a meaningful and substantial change to the people who seek your help. You automatically start to feel responsible for the mental, emotional well-being of every person who comes to you for guidance. This is a profound connection that every NLP Practitioner feels with their clients. NLP coaches provide wholesome life coaching, mostly in self-improvement and fighting psychological conditions like anxiety and depression. When you see a person transform in front of your eyes and see the results of your efforts bearing fruit every passing day, it brings you a profound sense of achievement, the likes of which are very rare in anything else you do.
2- A fresh perspective, every day
Every day when someone new steps into your office, you have the opportunity to reinvent your own self. As you show your clients how their limiting beliefs might be holding them back to achieve greater heights, you can learn about your own beliefs formed every day. Being an NLP Coach means that even when you are a practitioner, your own learning never stops.
You get to fight your own pre-suppositions while conversing with the people you are helping. The process becomes a two-way stream which is immensely powerful. While you are trying to reprogram their minds of others, you can also find new perspectives on your own life and career and reinvent your own self for the better.
3- Improves your own communication skills
Effective communication depends on the response of your subjects.
As an NLP Practitioner, you may very well understand that no matter what we say or communicate, it is not the same if the listeners hear something else.
When you communicate with various people every day, you get to realize this notion at its best.
Once you start practicing, you will interact with all kinds of people. People with different backgrounds, education, work experience, life experience, and each one of them will perceive your words according to their own level.
To become an effective communicator, which is the primary and the most integral need of your profession, you learn to adapt.
As you grow your practice, you develop your skills to communicate effectively with every kind of person that you come across.
4- No failure, just feedback
Another advantage of being an NLP practitioner is that there is no failure. When you take up a task in any other job, you might have a fear of failing at it. But as an NLP coach, you just have feedback. And more room for improvement.
Every time you take up a new client, you start with new vigor, and you make sure to give your best. However, the results may vary with every person, and that is not something unexpected. Looking at your progress, you would think, how else can I approach this and try something new until it works.
That's the beauty of being an NLP coach. There is no fear of failing. Because you know that ultimately, it is going to work out.
5-It is more than just a 9 – 5 job
The best part of being an NLP practitioner is the excitement and the novelty that you can feel. Unlike other desk jobs where you have a tedious routine and tasks to carry out and milestones to complete and paperwork to file, and numbers to compute, this is an entirely different world of work.
It allows you to work on your own hours, set up your consultation timings at your own convenience, and keep yourself as relaxed as possible.
It gives you a chance to speak to groups of peoples and influence youngsters to become more proactive and better humans.
Being an NLP offers you the unique opportunity to be your own boss and make money without having to tire yourself out or do something that you don't like at all.
We Never Know Monotony!
NLP is not your boring day job where you just feel stuck and tired all the time. It is a different story with every client and a great opportunity to learn and earn simultaneously. As an NLP practitioner or coach, we never come across monotony and do not have a single day of boredom at work.
What else could be more amazing about any profession!
