Giving presents is a ‘funny’ process.
And a slightly complicated one, too, if you think about it…
if you delve a little deeper – under the bonnet – which is what we do in NLP...
On the surface we give a present because…
- We want to see the joy and surprise when they open it?
- To impress them?
- They’ve just given you one – or you know they’re about to?
- You feel you should?
- It’s a certain time of the year - a birthday or holiday period?
Underneath and beneath that surface we do it, hopefully, because we want to make someone feel good.
The only way?
But is giving a present the only way of doing this? Could there be more a direct way of making people feel good? Could there be a way of making people feel good that does not require us to give something in return?
That doesn’t cost money?
That doesn’t depend on a calendar date?
That isn’t limited to family or friends?
