The Power of Modelling
Both readers and critics note that one of the most significant concepts in Unlimited Power is that of what he refers to as “The Power of Modelling.” The basic idea is from NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) founded by Richard Bandler and John Grinder. The main point of the concept is that if one person can achieve something in life, other people can achieve it too–be it make lots of money, beat depression, win the love of your dreams or lose 100 pounds.
The book goes on to note that the way one achieves the same success as others who have already reached their goals is by modeling them. One must model their beliefs, their thoughts, their speech, how they use their body and the actions they took to get where they are today. Use their exact steps and actions to reach the same, exact results.
Robbins includes information on how to utilize NLP. He also writes about other NLP-derived patterns and techniques in Unlimited Power. His book includes discussions of the use of sub-modalities motivation and how to change your beliefs.
