NLP Anchoring Can Help You Build More Confidence

This article covers the very basics of NLP anchoring that will give you many powerful anchoring techniques and applications to build more confidence.

Someone has an intense emotional experience and at some point during that experience a specific stimulus is applied creating a neurological link between that stimulus and emotion. A negative example of this would be a woman whose husband has died. As those who attend his funeral pass they touch her on her arm while giving her their condolences.

The stimulus could be anything from a touch to a tone of voice to the tapping of a pencil on a table top. The important thing is that it is used at a certain point of the experience and that it is suitably unique when there is strong emotional stimulation so the two get associated with each other.

Let’s try this NLP Anchoring exercise:

Think of a time when you were totally confident, you felt powerful and there was no doubt in your mind. As those feelings come back to you they will peak and subside. Start clenching your fist. Repeat this and then test it by clenching your fist. If you’ve done it right you should feel a welling up of those same emotions. Imagine firing off this confidence anchor whenever you are feeling a little unsure of yourself.

As mentioned near the beginning of the article imagine anchoring everyone around you to positive feelings.

How does anchoring work? This NLP technique works by giving us the ability to bypass the conscious mind and implant a message or an idea into our subconscious. This is why NLP anchoring can bring immediate results. Normal therapy requires you to slowly chip away at the filter.
