Chapter 12: Perceptual Perceptions (NLP for Personal Success)

Can you believe that it's already March? Feels like it's only two days away from New Year's Eve, tho. Time flies freakin fast, eh?

Sooo, how are you feeling right now guys? I hope you're all feeling great.
Whatever you do, do it with love. :)

We've come to chapter 12, eventually. Perceptual Positions has so many advantages.
With it, we can actually realize what's happening between us and other people.
With it, we can respond better.
With it, we can find both ours and others' solutions.
With it, we can bigger our heart and give empathy to others.

What is perceptual positions?
Perceptual --> perception --> how we see things
Positions --> where we are/ where we choose to be.

Perceptual Positions is divided into four:

First position is how we see ourselves and the world around us with our own eyes, our own thoughts and our own understanding(s). It's "self" position. Here we use the words "I" or "me" or "my".
By being in this position, we'll be able to focus on what we want and achieve them.
But being here can also cause us to be egoistic/ narcissistic person so we mut be fully aware. Hehehehehe.

Second position is how we see the world through other people's perspectives. Here we must act like them, mirroring their gesture, and even breath like them.
We will be able to experience everything through their five senses.
Here we must let go of our values and beliefs for a while, to know what it's like to be them, to know how they think.
By being in this position we can give empathy to the people we're having communication with. But sometimes it can also make us feel dry.

Third position is being an observer, means we observe the two sides who communicate with each other (one of the side is us) from the distance.
By positioning ourselves in observer mode, we can understand both perceptions, we can analyze the problems and seek for solutions. We can gain infos to be brought back to our first position.

Fourth position is the three positions, combine all in one. By being here, we'll feel resemblance with all the other people in the system.
