What is NLP?
Simply put, it is the language of the Mind
N – Neuro
The physical components as well as the mental and emotional components of our neurology. This relates to our Nervous System, the neurology of our body
L – Linguistic
Linguistics pertains to the language that you use, and more specifically, how you communicate with others and more importantly, how you communicate with yourself
P – Programming
Perceiving your mind as your internal operating system, Programming is the way our past experiences, thoughts and emotions affect all areas of our lives
Neuro-Linguistic Programming, or NLP, provides practical ways in which you can change the way that you think, view past events, and approach your life.
Neuro-Linguistic Programming shows you how to take control of your mind, and therefore your life. Unlike psychoanalysis, which focuses on the ‘why ’, NLP is very practical and focuses on the ‘how ’.
Learning NLP is like learning the language of your own mind!
Let’s make this simpler with an example…
Have you ever tried to communicate with someone who didn’t speak your language, and they couldn’t understand you? The classic example of this is when someone goes out to a restaurant in a Foreign country and they think they ordered noodles, but when the food shows up, it turns out they actually asked for rice.
This is the kind of relationship that most of us have with our own unconscious mind. We might think we are “ordering up” more money, a happy, healthy relationship, peace with our family members, and being able to stick to a healthy diet…but unless that’s what showing up, then something is probably getting lost in translation.
NLP is a user’s manual
for the brain…
NLP is the study of excellent communication–both with yourself, and with others. It was developed by modeling excellent communicators and therapists who got results with their clients. NLP is a set of tools and techniques, but it is so much more than that.It is an attitude and a methodology of knowing how to achieve your goals and get results.
NLP is the practice of understanding how people organise their thinking, feeling, language and behaviour to produce the results they do. NLP provides people with a methodology to model outstanding performances achieved by geniuses and leaders in their field. NLP is also used for personal development and for success in business
