How to use anchoring for accelerated learning.

Anchoring is a powerful NLP technique for ensuring access to our greatest personal resources. Anchoring means creating an association of ideas, feelings, thoughts or states with a specific stimulus. This technique is not new. In a famous series of experiments, Dr. Ivan Pavlov placed hungry dogs near meat so they could smell it and see it but not reach it. The meat acted as a powerful stimulus torepparttar dog’s digestive processes, causing them to salivate copiously. Whilerepparttar 109432 dogs were in this intense state of hunger and salivation, Pavlov consistently rang a bell with a specific tone. Pavlov showed that he could then inducerepparttar 109433 dog’s state of copious salivation, just by ringingrepparttar 109434 bell. The sight and smell of meat was no longer needed. Pavlov had created within each dog’s central nervous system, a neurological link betweenrepparttar 109435 sound ofrepparttar 109436 bell andrepparttar 109437 state of hunger and salivation. All Pavlov had to do was ringrepparttar 109438 same bell andrepparttar 109439 dogs would salivate. In other words he had created an anchor.

Whenever a person is in an intense state whererepparttar 109440 mind and body are strongly involved together and a specific stimulus is consistently and simultaneously applied atrepparttar 109441 peak ofrepparttar 109442 state,repparttar 109443 stimulus andrepparttar 109444 state become neurologically linked. Then, when everrepparttar 109445 same stimulus is applied,repparttar 109446 associated state is induced. Have you noticed how this principle is used by professional athletes? Tennis players for example often use a certain rhythm for bouncingrepparttar 109447 ball to put themselves in their best state as they serve, or weight lifters use a certain pattern of breathing to induce best state just before they lift. You could if you wanted to, anchor five different resourceful states ontorepparttar 109448 five digits of one hand. The states might be exuberance, confidence, motivation, decisiveness and relaxed alertness. The stimuli would be unobtrusive and you could triggerrepparttar 109449 stimulus selectively, whenever you wanted and needed a boost! How would this change your life forrepparttar 109450 better?
