NLP is the art and science of Neuro Linguistic Programming.
Here’s a couple of mildly confusing definitions of what NLP is all about:
“NLP is the study of the structure of subjective experience.”
- John Grinder, co-founder of NLP.
“NLP is how to use the language of the mind to consistently achieve your specific, desired results.”
- Richard Bandler, co-founder of NLP.
So what does that mean in plain English?
NLP gives you the strategic “mental models” to understand and control the three most influential components involved in producing your unique, human experience: Neurology, Language and Programming…
Your Neurological system regulates how your body functions (...including how you think, feel, and act, second-by-second),
Language determines how you “interface” and communicate with other people (... which determines how charismatic, attractive and influential you are) and...
Your Programming determines the kinds of models of the world you create (...including your beliefs about your identity, your place in the world, what you’re capable of, and -- of course -- how you self-sabotage).
In other words…
You can use NLP to recognize and breakthrough the limiting beliefs keeping you trapped in mediocrity...
...and it can also be used to form new, empowering beliefs to help you more easily get the results you’ve been struggling to achieve.
Think of it like this:
Whatever you want in life… your biggest goals... your dream income... your perfect lifestyle -- THAT is someone else’s reality RIGHT NOW.
And all you need to experience that reality for yourself is figure out who they’re BEING… what they’re DOING (that you’re not)... and how they’re showing up in the world.
You see, the results you’re getting in your life right now are a direct result and natural side-effect of who you’ve decided you are, what you do, and how you show up in the world.
And that's exactly what you'll learn how to change (and experience it live, in-the-room, in real time) during your 3-day EPIC NLP Practitioner Certification training.
EPIC NLP is the world's first pragmatic, accelerated NLP learning system.
Learn how to resolve internal conflict, control your emotional state at will, remove unwanted habits, change beliefs at the subconscious level, remedy fear, self-doubt and procrastination, and much more with eight customized EPIC "MindShift" NLP techniques.
Take your business idea and launch it successfully in just a few months... or stop procrastinating and exercise consistently... stick to that diet... and sculpt the body you've always dreamed of.
Create an instant sense of trust, comfort and connection with everyone you meet, and learn how to persuasively present your ideas to get a raise... market your business more effectively... and make more money.
A: It depends on who you are…
If you’re a business owner, this certification is a great way to learn emotional intelligence, covert communication and influence skills, and to create “confidence on command” to overcome self-sabotaging behaviours. It’s also a great way to train and certify members of your own team to ensure that they’re up to speed and in control.
If you’re a student, this certification can set you apart from other graduates who merely have a degree, with specialized “soft skills” that employers today are desperately seeking.
If you’re an employee, this certification can make you more valuable to your company, which is the surest way to get that raise or promotion you likely already deserve (but don’t have a tangible reason to request).
A: The certification itself is highly valuable if you need to set yourself apart from the competition.
What’s far more valuable than any badge or certificate, however, is the actual knowledge and skills you’re going to receive when you take this course and pass the test.
A: Yes, you make retake the test up to 2 times (for a total of 3 attempts). After 3 failed attempts, you will be required to retake the class and all the module quizzes prior to attempting the final exam again.
A: Once you've completed the 3-day live intensive, you’ll have an additional 2 weeks to complete the final exam. We understand that life happens, and that just because you enroll today that doesn’t mean you’ll be able to master the entire course contents in one sitting, and that’s ok! You’ll have lifetime access to the video-based training. We aren’t going anywhere, and neither is this certification.
This program is not intended to substitute for informed medical advice. You should not use this information to diagnose or treat a health problem or disease without consulting with a qualified health care provider. A consultation with your health care professional is the proper method to address your health concerns. You are encouraged to consult your health care provider with any questions or concerns you may have regarding your condition.
A: No, you'll need to commit to being there for the entire event. The 3 days cover a step-by-step process. Each session follows logically from the one before. It’s not a set of random, 90-minute sales pitches.
There will be ample time in the breaks to handle any personal or work related "stuff" you need to get done.
A: No, not at all.
Nick is the only presenter for the entire 3 days.
Nick will make two offers during the event; one to take the next level of training, and the other to have a 1 hour conversation with him after the event. He won’t invite you to “run down the back because there are only 7 of these and you need to be quick”. If you’re going to work with Nick then it needs to be the right decision for all concerned (he's extremely selective).
A: Haha... Not a chance!
You’ll get to learn experientially by watching live demonstrations and practicing with partners.
It’s one thing to understand the concepts, but you get the real “ah-ha's” by watching the techniques demonstrated live, on-stage -- and then partnering up with someone to give it a go yourself. With this level of detailed knowledge and practical application, you can take home the learnings and apply them straight away to your life and business.
The workshop will be interesting and fun. Nick is a lively and entertaining presenter. The 3 days will fly by as the secrets to building your business and improving your life with EPIC NLP unfold.
A: This event is extremely practical and hands-on from the start. Nick won’t tease you with a little bit of information and then ask you to buy something to get the real stuff.
He’ll give you practical, easy-to-implement strategies that you can take home and apply immediately.
A: The live, in-person component of the course is 3 days.
You also receive lifetime access to the complete 12 week online version of the course as a bonus (NB: most NLP course are only 7 days long in total).
After you complete the 3 day live training, you'll have a full 2 weeks to review the online components, and complete the open-book online certification exam.
Most people successfully complete the exam at night after the live training days.
A: No. A certification that can simply be purchased isn’t worth the paper it’s printed on. That’s why our courses are a little challenging.
If we’re going to allow you to display a certificate from Success Dynamics Institute, you’re going to have to earn it.
A: No - we don't offer free places on our courses. You don’t have to site the final exam if you don’t want to. However, you won’t receive your certification if you don’t.
Some people don’t care about certifications – they’re only interested in the knowledge and skills. If that’s you, just skip the exam. You’ll learn all the same awesome skills, strategies, systems, tools, and techniques, but you will not be able to call yourself an EPIC NLP Practitioner.
A: You’ll find that the test is “satisfyingly difficult.” By that I mean, it’s difficult enough that you need to actually know the material, but it isn’t tricky or difficult just for the sake of being difficult.
That said, to preserve the exclusivity and importance of this certification, we have made the tests challenging and the questions do pertain to our proprietary methodologies, so you shouldn’t expect to be able to pass the test just because you have taken other NLP trainings or courses in the past, or read a few books.
This training is different, and the exams will reflect those differences.
A: Because that’s rubbish, and we both know it. It’s a cheap marketing ploy bordering on false advertising, and we respect ourselves — and your intelligence — too much to use deceiving marketing practices like that.
A: We’re not offering one-on-one coaching as part of the EPIC NLP program.
You can get individual support and ask absolutely any questions you want during the live event, and afterwards in our private Facebook group.
We do have an invitation-only, elite level mentoring program that includes direct access to Nick… but you’ll need to qualify.
A: The great thing about NLP techniques is they can be done “content free”. In almost every case you don’t have to tell your training partner what it is specifically you’re working on. As long as YOU know what it is, you’ll be able to learn and practice the techniques.
