Within NLP, there is this set of language patterns called the Milton Model.
All in all, there’s about thirty specific patterns that have been identified.
On their own, they are very powerful, so long as they are contextual and said with rapport.
For example, take the pattern, “the more…the more…” or more broadly said, “comparative..comparative..”
Like, “the more you practice NLP, the better you’ll get at persuasion.” Or, “the sooner you accept your inherent skills, the more likely you’ll create massive wealth.”
Another pattern is the “awareness verb” pattern. When you use verbs like “realize, become aware, understand,” etc.
You can use this to “imply” a certain truth.
If you said, “math is easy,” for example, you might get some objections.
But when you put it behind an awareness predicate, it’s a bit easier to swallow.
Realizing math is easy will help you earn a lot of money.
People who understand that math is easy tend to make more money than people who falsely believe it’s hard.
Now, if you’re writing these patterns, they can get a bit hard to read. People reading some long text that’s a bit confusing tend to click over to some page that’s easier to follow.
But when you’re speaking to somebody face to face, these can be incredibly powerful, especially when you start combining these patterns.
For example, let’s combine the “comparative…comparative..” with the predicate awareness pattern, along with a time based “cause and effect.” (When you X, then you’ll Y).
Three specific Milton Model patterns all rolled into one incredibly confusing and potentially irresistible persuasive sentence (based of course on rapport and context):
When you realize that the sooner you accept that math is easy, the easier it is to make a ton of money, you’ll begin to understand just how many opportunities there are out there.
After you begin to understand that this is just the tip of the iceberg, you’ll soon realize that the more you practice these patterns, the easier it will be to get those things you’d like in life.
The sooner you realize that learning never stops, the quicker you’ll understand the true nature of life, which is to consistently improve your skills and find ways to share those with others.
Play around with these, and have fun.
