I. Who's Driving the Bus? 7-19
Most of us let our brains run wild, and spend a lot of time
having experiences we don't want to have. Bandler pokes fun at
many of our current ways of attempting to think about and solve
human problems, as he begins to provide alternatives.
II. Running Your Own Brain 21-35
Depending upon the size, brightness, closeness, etc., of our
internal pictures, we respond very differently to the same
thoughts. Understanding these simple principles allows us to
change our experiences so that we respond the way we want.
"Briefest therapy" is demonstrated.
III. Points of View 37-48
Seeing a memory from your own point of view (through your
own eyes) has a very different impact than watching yourself in
that memory from some other point of view. Knowing how to use
this difference allows you to cure a phobia or a "post-traumatic
stress syndrome" in a few minutes, among other things.
IV Going Wrong 51-67
We often try to correct problems after something has gone
wrong, rather than doing things ahead of time to make sure they
go the way we want them to. The attempted correction often
makes the problem worse.
V. Going for it 69-80
We all motivate ourselves to do things repeatedly throughout
the day. Knowing how this works makes it possible to choose
what we're motivated to do, and to use powerful positive feelings
to do it. A way to change critical internal voices into friendly and
useful allies is also demonstrated.
VI. Understanding Confusion 83-101
The ways we each organize our experience to understand
something are unique, and can be directed and modified. Much
can be learned by trying out someone else's way of understanding.
VII. Beyond Belief 103-115
Our brains code our internal experiences so that we know
what we believe and what we don't. By directly accessing and
changing this internal coding, it is possible to quickly change
limiting beliefs about yourself into resourceful and empowering
VIII. Learning 117-129
Our educational system has attempted to teach students content,
rather than teach them how to learn. "School phobias" which
prevent learning can be dealt with easily. Memory and "learning
disabilities" arc also discussed.
IX. The Swish 131-152
By understanding how your brain links experiences, it is
possible to make any problem situation into a cue for you to
become more of who you want to be. This method provides a
generative solution for almost any problem behavior or response.
It is demonstrated with smoking and other habitual responses.
