NLP: Article Written Years Ago - Eyes of the Tiger


This is the 4th re-published article on NLP that I have written years ago.

Eyes of the Tiger

Remember the movie Rocky V. The original sound track is called the Eyes of The Tiger. I was really impressed by the movie that I had watched it for 5 times.

When Rocky could not wear the eyes of the tiger facing his challenger, he lost. He was frightened by the much stronger enemy. Finally, when the eyes of the tiger was in him, all the confidence, power and energy were triggered off and he won the game.

In NLP, we are talking about how to shift ourselves from one state to another state. For example, from a state of shyness to a state of confidence, from frighten to brave, from confusion to clarity, etc. NLP actually is the science of State Management.

But how can we achieve the effective shifting? For NLP Practitioners, we will use all those tools like Resources, Anchoring, Swish pattern, etc. However, I seldom use all these because I have another much easier and effective way, which I call the Eyes of the Tiger. I invented this well before I learned NLP. This was more than 20 years ago when I watched my fifth time the Rocky V.

When you need confidence, power and energy, wear the Eyes of the Tiger, just as Rocky did. Imagine yourself being a tiger, a strong tiger. You see the environment through these eyes of the tiger. How does a tiger's eye look? Do as what the tiger's eye looks. Within seconds, you are filled up with all those confidence, power and energy you need.

As we Chinese says, eyes are the windows of our souls. It affects the inside of us, but it even affects others, too. Many people judge another by looking at their eyes. You can pretend to be confident. You can look confident, but your eyes can betray you. This is the weakest part of our body, physically and mentally. But when you can wear the "set" of eyes you need, you gain the resources you want from inside out.

If you want to be quick in response, wear the eyes of a leopard.

If you want to be observant, wear the eyes of an eagle.

If you want to be persistent, wear the eyes of a camel

Just have your own sets of eyes ready, and you can access any of the Human Resources at any time.

(Keith's Remark in 2007: This is an application of the Content-Less High Performance State. We put ourselves in a Generalized 2nd Position of something having the resources we want.)
