Change Personal History

Your thoughts in the present create your future and are based on your past memories. How useful is it to continue to penalize yourself in the present and future because someone hurt you way in the past. As a child we often take responsibility for the actions of others. Is it not time to let it go and create a more compelling future?

In addition, have you ever misinterpreted an event or conversation simply because you did not have complete knowledge of what was happening? As a child you determined your feelings and views on life based on the adults around you, while not having complete knowledge of the pressures faced by these adults or their personal limitations. With this as your frame of reference, is it not possible that you misinterpreted the past? You can not change what actually happened. You are however in charge of your memories and hence you can reassess the past and use it as a resource rather than a limitation.

Many NLP techniques give you the opportunity to 'change your personal history' by adding additional resources to the 'younger you' in a past memory or by reassessing a past memory with all of the resources and understanding of the adult you are today.

And NLP is Much more than that!
