Linguistics: Technique Implementation



I don’t know why, but it is MORE powerful reading the transcript of this POWERFUL moment!

>> James:  And, finally, implementation–That is, the Techniques that I’ve developed. How they work, why they work, based on the education and discovery process. Does anybody want to deal with anything today before we leave? Anything?

>> Woman: What? (Laughs).

>> James: (Laughs) No pressure. All right.

>> Woman: Which of the 500 million things? (Laughs)

>>James: (Laughs) There are 500 million things, always. Yeah,

>>Man: Well we talked about…

>>James: Always one at a time

>>Man: Talked about anxiety on the way over here

>>Woman: On the…

>>Man: Stuff like that…

>>Woman: Anxiety for Adult Nationals?

>>Man: Mhm.

>>James: And if you feel more comfortable staying after and talking with me or either way, that’s fine.

>>Woman: Well, I’ve been thinking, 3 years ago I attended a skating competition–

>>James: Hang on, just a second–are you engaging now?

>>Woman: Yes.

>>James: So would you like to do this?

>>Woman: Yes.

>>James: Okay, cool. Everybody on the same page–she never actually said that, right? I never actually got voluntary–

>>Woman: Oh, I just go right into it.

>>James: Okay, well I have to make sure that you actually say you want to engage because it’s important that you understand that once you engage with me, you will change today–Are you ready for that?

>>Woman: Yes.

>>James: You understand that?

>>Woman: Yes.

>>James: So are you ready for that?

>>Woman: Yes.

>>James: Okay great–so how do you want to feel?

>>Woman: Confident.

>>James: What does that mean to you–this word?

>>Woman: It means I step on the ice in front of a panel of fi–

>>James: Which one is your favorite color out of those 3? Awesome–can I use that? Thank you. I’m sorry, say that again? What’d you say?

>>Woman: That I step on the ice in front of a panel of 5 judges and don’t have my legs shaking and can do what my best is.

>>James: Okay, so–Step out in front of judges and not–what?

>>Woman: Not have my legs shake

>>James: And not have–did you guys hear what just happened? I wanted to hear what you want. She told me what she doesn’t want. What do you want? Not what you don’t want. What do you want to be different?

>>Woman: I want to go and take home the medal.

>>James: What?

>>Woman: I want to go and take home the medal!

>>James: Take home a medal–confident, and you want to take home any medal?

>>Woman: Yeah.

>>James: Any medal. Take home any medal. Just a sec. (Hands sheet) There you go–have a great day and your problem is solved! All right, that’s the magic guys–Mind Ninja, woo! There’s your medal. Any medal will do, right? You got it–good job. (claps) Everybody congratulate her, she got a medal. That’s the medal you want–any medal will do.

>>Woman: This is a piece of paper with a drawing on it.

>>James: I made that medal and I’m very offended (laughs). Not any medal–not any medal. Right? What medal? What medal?

>>Woman: What medal? I would like to win a medal at adult nationals.

>>James: Adult nationals. Okay, great, and when you win a medal at adult nationals how’s that going to make you feel?

>>Woman: Like I’ve achieved something.

>>James: Like you’ve achieved something.

>>Woman: Yes.

>>James: Well then how would that make your life different?

>>Woman: Each time that I have success in something, it builds up my confidence in other areas of my life.

>>James: Okay. So…

>>Woman: When I started skating, it built my confidence at work. It built my confidence in–

>>James: So a win will help you–you’ll build on that and you’ll have more wins.

>>Woman: Right.

>>James: That medal will result in more wins down the line for you.

>>Woman: It builds confidence.

>>James: Right. So as you–how do you know that? How do you know that it builds confidence?

>>Woman: Because I’ve won medals before.

>>James: And every time you did it, it built confidence?

>>Woman: It built confidence.

>>James: Which one built the most confidence?

>>Woman: The medal that I got at midwesterns–adult midwesterns.

>>James: Adult midwesterns?

>>Woman: Yes.

>>James: What year was that?

>>Woman: 2003.

>>James: 2003. Adult–what was it again?

>>Woman: midwesterns championship

>>James: Adult midwesterns… what–what color was your outfit that year?

>>Woman: Blue

>>James: And–how do you know it was blue?

>>Woman: Because I know it was blue because I skated to the theme music from the west wing.

>>James: Which one was it?

>>Woman: From the West Wing.

>>James: Can you hum it for me? The theme music how’d it go–who was it?

>>Woman: (hums)

>>Man: Good theme.

>>James: Yeah, that’s a good theme right?

>>Woman: Yeah.

>>James: How’re you feeling now–How’re you feeling now?

 >>Woman: Well um, I love that show so (laughs).

>>James: Right– How’re you feeling right now?

>>Woman: Pretty good.

>>James: Pretty good. Why do you think you’re feeling pretty good right now?

>>Woman: Because I went back to a memory of something that I really enjoy doing–

>>James: That you accomplished.

>>Woman: That I accomplished.

>>James: That’s right. Now who is responsible for that shift–right now? That feeling?

>>Woman: I think I am…

>>James: You think you are? How do you know?

>>Woman: Because I went back into all of those memories and–

>>James: That’s right, and when you did that…

>>Woman: And they were positive

>>James: And did it make you feel more confident?

>>Woman: Yeah.

>>James: So–

>>Woman: But there are some memories of falling (laughs).

>>James: That’s right, that’s right. And so, when you focus on those, how does that make you feel?

>>Woman: Like I should stop (laughs).

>>James: Right–Do you want to stop?

>>Woman: No.

>>James: So then which imagery is going to be more likely to give you the confidence to step out on the ice and to win a medal?

>>Woman: The west wing imagery

>>James: Well then why in the world wouldn’t you be thinking about west wing imagery? If that is the successful pattern that you know is going to work–How do you know that that’s not the way you’re going to approach it from now on?

>>Woman: Bad behavior.

>>James: Bad behavior in the…?

>>Woman: In thinking about the negatives instead of the positives.

>>James: That’s right, so how do you know you won’t do that anymore?

>>Woman: That I won’t do that anymore?

>>James: That’s right.

>>Woman: I would have to force myself to not do it.

>>James: And how do you know you won’t?

>>Woman: I don’t know that.

>>James: How do you know you won’t?

>>Woman: I don’t know (laughs).

>>James: Is it possible that you might?

>>Woman: That I might, okay–go back to the question–

>>James: Exactly. Do you guys see what’s happening? We are accessing her belief system–How do you know, from now on, that your mind will be incapable of looking at negativity?

>>Woman: I don’t know that.

>>James: Well then how do we know that from now on that the brain will only look at the positivity, from this point forward?

>>Woman: The only way to assure that is to make myself create that imagery.

>>James: Are you sure?

>>Woman: Yeah–Well nobody else is going to do it for me.

>>James: Are you sure?

>>Woman: I’m absolutely positive.

>>James: So then, will you?

>>Woman: Yes.

>>James: How do you know?

>>Woman: Because this one will get on my back if I don’t (laughs).

>>James: Well hang on, now you’re putting responsibility back on her–I thought you just said that you’re the only one that can do it.

>>Woman: That’s true.

>>James: So then, how do you know?

>>Woman: How do I know… that I’ll do it?

>>James: That’s right.

>>Woman: I just have to commit myself to doing it.

>>James: You have to–so did you?

>>Woman: Did I, right now?

>>James: Mhm.

>>Woman: Yeah.

>>James: How do you know? How do you know you’re committed to it?

>>Woman: I’m not sure I have the answer to that.

>>James: I’m not sure you do, either. Do you know that the brain, right now is trying to look for the answer to that–and all it’s doing is asking for something. Something–so would you like to go ahead and get that thing?

>>Woman: Yes.

>>James: Okay go ahead and stand up for me. And just face me now, okay? Whenever you’re thinking about that moment–of that shakiness on the ice, okay? Where does that feeling start?

>>Woman: (gestures to knees)

>>James: Okay. And is it starting now?

>>Woman: No

>>James: Okay. So whenever it starts there–in the legs, before, and it started there before–who is responsible for that feeling?

>>Woman: Me.

>>James: And why?

>>Woman: Fear.

>>James: Right. And is that fear there anymore?

>>Woman: Not right now

>>James: Will it be there in the future?

>>Woman: I can’t guarantee that.

>>James: Why can’t you guarantee that?

>>Woman: Because past experiences have shown me that–

>>James: That’s right. That’s right and in the past–those past experiences–when you focus on those, what happens?

>>Woman: I get short of breath, my legs shake.

>>James: That’s right.

>>Woman: I see not positive things happening.

>>James: Correct–but whenever you think about the west wing…

>>Woman: I see myself next to the board saying “It’s our turn to skate girls”!

>>James: There you go. So then, who is responsible for the confidence that’s necessary to take home the medal?

>>Woman: I am.

>>James: With what method?

>>Woman: With recalling positive imagery instead of the negative imagery.

>>James: And now that you know that, how do you know the brain won’t do that automatically?

>>Woman: Recall the positive?

>>James: Mhm.

>>Woman: I don’t know that. I have to be responsible for that.

>>James: Can I tell you something–you really don’t. Do you know why? Because we’ve gone over this now, 3 times. And the brain is already starting to latch onto the fact that it won’t go negative again. It can’t go negative again. If it goes negative again, you will fall. Your brain’s already figured that out. So your brains already latched onto the fact that it won’t. It won’t. It won’t. How do you know that it won’t?

>>Woman: ‘Cause my brain’s latched on to it.

>>James: That’s right. The learning process. Right?

>>Woman: Yes.

>>James: Unconscious competence. Did it feel better to think about the west wing?

>>Woman: Yeah.

>>James: Do you think your brain wants to feel better or worse?

>>Woman: Better.

>>James: So then now that you’ve acknowledged that the falling–it creates that shortness of breath–it creates the jitteriness of the legs. All of that negativity. That you create in your own mind creates the atmosphere in which you will fall. Your brain knows that now. It can’t un-know that. So, now that you know that this is a for sure thing. How is your life different?

>>Woman: I want to go get on the ice (Laughs).

>>James: (Laughs) You do don’t you? Right? You’re ready to go right now, right?

>>Woman: Right.

>>James: Right. And you should. Okay. As soon as you’re ready. All right, awesome. All right, does everyone see how it works? Now that is, that is uhm, developing technology–you use what you have. Okay, whatever you have available to you and you do it in real time and that–you feel okay? You feel kind of weird?

>>Woman: Mhm. A little emotional.

>James: Okay–that’s an limbic system shift okay, there’s nothing wrong with that–it’s the chemicals in the brain–your dopamine, your serotonin, so you don’t forget. Your brain’s releasing all that stuff so it is for sure never going anywhere. Your brain was making sure, okay? That’s what that is. So just relax in it. It’s okay. All right. The limbic system is the only way this stuff works, guys. You have to be emotionally available to make changes and that’s why it was important and imperative for me to ask her if she was ready to engage and she was ready for change, because until they make that decision–might as well, you’re wasting your time with everybody you talk to.
