I wanted to learn more about NLP techniques so I attended a webinar. The coach told us many stories that I liked. I loved how he compared a life with cooking & a fridge. He said that when you cook, you shouldn't focus on the ingredients that are missing. You have to focus on the ingredients that you have and cook the best possible meal out of it.
I borrowed one of coach's books and I liked it at first. But then I got to the following story.
There was a couple who was trying to have a child for 20 years. They went to a clinic and said to themselves that this was their last try. The doctor didn't believe that they would succeed and this helped them give away all the pressure and they trusted the miracle to the safe hands of God, universe, nature. And they succeeded. They got beautiful healthy baby boy.
We were trying for a child for a decade. We had 10 failed IVFs. I still remember the horrible pressure, when we decided for the last try.
The NLP coach's story can be written only by someone who has vivid imagination and absolutely no experiences with the infertility.
Needless to say, I put the book down. I am done with NLP techniques for now :)
