Neuro-associations are the links between thoughts and emotions in your mind, which create and shape your behavior and performance results.

It may sound strange but these links determine your bank account balance, your diet, and your future. How? All that you have and are today is created by your actions, which are directly influenced by neuro-associations.

NAC is not a “positive affirmation”, there’s nothing wrong with them by the way, I see NAC as a “way” of thinking and a practise that can be infused into your everyday routine. Like building a muscle, you must make a conscious decision to train your emotions to build your emotional fitness.

What are neuro-associations?

Neuro-associations are the links between thoughts and emotions in your mind, which create and shape your behavior and performance results.

It may sound strange but these links determine your bank account balance, your diet, and your future. How? All that you have and are today is created by your actions, which are directly influenced by neuro-associations.

NAC is not a “positive affirmation”, there’s nothing wrong with them by the way, I see NAC as a “way” of thinking and a practise that can be infused into your everyday routine. Like building a muscle, you must make a conscious decision to train your emotions to build your emotional fitness. Hanson.

Why are neuro-associations so important?

The mind operates using neuro-association principles and does it without any intervention of the conscious mind. It links emotions with thoughts all of the time. Every thought is a link to many other thoughts and creates the thinking process. Here’s an example: If you think about “honey,” it is very likely that your next thought will be “bee,” “sweet,” “yellow,” or “hive.” The mind does not link thoughts logically, but purely by experience.

This simple fact has a hidden meaning which is powerful: our freedom to live our own life is dependent on the binds and links between our thoughts.

The links between thoughts differ in every person. For one person, the link between “business” and “bankruptcy” and “failure” could be hundreds of times stronger than the link between “business” and “success” and “joy.” The behavior of this person is quite obvious, isn’t it?

In the same manner, other thoughts are linked including “study” and “benefits,” “sports” and “strength,” “communication skills” and “success.” Do you feel the power of neuro-associations?

Yes, we are already programmed through neuro-associations. How did it happen? Let’s see.

Richard Branson, one of the most successful entrepreneurs in the world, who created the Virgin Group, is a great example of how neuro-associations can determine a person’s life and accomplishments. Every person who has read his autobiography will agree that if you link “obstacle” or “problem” to “is another fun challenge” (“Screw it, let’s do it!”), you’ll find that there is no need for effort to move forward. Ideas become reality very naturally and quickly.

What do you link your personal dream to and what do you feel when you think about your desired lifestyle? All that you feel is just a result of neuro-associations. The truth is that your personal dream lives in you with a purpose: it shows your strengths and talents.

Anthony Robbins has explored neuro-associations for decades. This man consults the richest people in the world and lives his own life by doing what he loves. Neuro-association is the secret weapon of Anthony Robbins, who changed his life as well as other people’s lives.

How about us, what are we doing to help our children have the better quality of life and more options? Interested to learn more, or follow me on my on my refresher course in NAC here’s some quick links for you.

  • Decide what you really want and what is preventing you from having it now.This is the crucial, first step. See Outcome Thinking.
  • Get leverage. Associate Massive Pain to not changing now and Massive pleasure to changing now.Tony Robbins devised the Dickens Pattern which can create massive leverage in a matter of around one hour.We obtain leverage to make a change once we hit the pain threshold. This is a point when we can no longer stand the pain of not changing. Until we reach this point, we experience mixed associations towards changing. That is on one hand we want to change, but on the other we also don’t want to change because the pain of not changing is not sufficiently high enough. If something happens that increases the pain to such a high degree so that it hits the threshold, we change. (Another popular form of creating leverage is Provocation)
  • Interrupt the limiting pattern.The Pattern Interrupt stage. We get our patterns interrupted a lot of times in our day to day activities. It is common to notice in conversations how people get scrambled when they say “Where were we?” or “I was saying something.”. We may need to interrupt the limiting pattern consistently (typically about a dozen times but actually based on what the limiting pattern is).
    If you are overeating, when you are in a restaurant, stand up and shout by pointing to your chair “Pig!”. Do this two to three times and then you won’t overeat. Acting the fool, is one way to interrupt your pattern.
  • Create a new empowering alternative.What would replace your old limiting pattern? If you are addicted to cigarette smoking you may have to find an empowering alternative to cigarettes. It may be that you engage in regular exercise, deep breathing and yoga. You just don’t stop smoking. You create something that replaces your smoking habit.
    Also see Outcome Thinking.
  • Condition the pattern until it is consistent.Keep reinforcing the pattern, whenever the new behavior happens, pat yourself on the back or express appreciation and congragulation if you are helping someone else, as the new pattern begins to take form. Once the pattern is reinforced consistently, the new pattern takes hold replacing the old one.
  • Test it!Finally test whether the new pattern works. Imagine/Visualize the scenarios that trigger the limiting and empowering patterns and notice your responses. Most probably the new pattern would have taken ground by now.

Remember to…

  • Be clear on what you want and where you are going.
  • Have an empowering alternative to your limiting pattern.
  • Keep interrupting the limiting pattern as it occurs.
  • Keep reinforcing the empowering pattern as and when it occurs.
  • Get massive leverage to change.
