What have Anxiety and a delightful future have in common? Well for most people they are both in the future and both have not happened yet.
Anxiety is generally about planning a future that is pretty much crappy and undesired. Anxiety experts also tend not to have any conscious ending for the unpleasant events they imagine. This causes some more uncertainty and will tend to promote the anxiety cycle again. Structurally there is little difference if any between Delight and Anxiety. Clearly the content is evaluated in a kind of either great or terrible way.
NLP is well known for its process orientated approach over content or situational details. This short video from an NLP Practitioner training in Newcastle upon Tyne illustrates two NLP Operational Presupositions really nicely.
1. People have all the resources they need.
2. Structure ( or process ) is more useful than content and is a higher logical level.
