What is NLP?

Have you heard about Neuro Linguistic Programming, or NLP? It's an incredibly useful behavioral science that can help you change your life.

Developed in the 1970s, it combines techniques from neurology, computer science, and linguistics to help people achieve their potential. Here's what it is and how it works.
 
NLP has been described as the science of excellence in humans and involves modeling the language structure and behavior of success people.
 
This means if you want to be a happy, successful person, you can't go wrong by thinking, talking, and behaving the way happy, successful people do. And if you utilize NLP in your speech, you will be able to persuade and convince others with greater success, too!
 
Basic NLP Principles
 
There are many variants of NLP, so there is debate between some practitioners that others are doing it wrong. Even with these hot debates, though, the basic principles are the same, and all agree that it works to make your life more fulfilling.
 
The two biggest principles of NLP are that the map is not the territory, and that both life and mind are systemic processes. What do those principles mean? Let's take a look at them and find out.
 
1.      The map is not the territory. This means that, as people, we have no way to actually understand reality. Instead, we understand our perceptions of that reality, and those perceptions may be flawed.

We use our senses to create a map of what we believe is there. These maps are what determine our behavior, not reality itself. If your map is skewed, you’ll behave in ways that are skewed, too.
 
2.      Life and mind are systemic processes.This means that the things going on inside your mind and body, and between you and your environment, can’t be isolated from one another. Trying to do so won’t result in success.
  • Every NLP technique you encounter is based on these principles. These NLP techniques can help us understand how our brains work, how we store information, and how to change our behaviors to ones that are more desirable.
 
NLP Benefits
 
Here are some specific ways that NLP can help you:
 
1.      Career. NLP can help you be more effective in your career.It can build your skills in teamwork, personal development, coaching, leadership, sales, and productivity. No matter what it is, if there's a potential for growth and human interaction is present, NLP can help.
 
2.      Goal Achievement. You can use NLP to help you set and achieve goals,as long as those goals are intelligent, measurable, meaningful and achievable.
  • For example, no program can guarantee you earn three million dollars in a month unless you already have logical means to draw this income.

However, this method could be the one you use to successfully strengthen your skills and interactions with others. It can change the way you think and speak, and motivate you to take appropriate actions to achieve your goals.
 
3.      Mental Health. NLP can help you overcome mental and emotional disorders and phobias.
 
4.      NLP can bring you a happier and more fulfilling life.
 
If you're interested in learning how to make a change in your life, NLP could be the tool you've been looking for.
 
Quite simply, NLP involves studying successful people and the steps they take to achieve such success. This success can come from any part of your life.
 
Overcoming phobias, learning how to speak with confidence in front of large groups, and learning how to have a loving personal relationship are all issues that can be helped with NLP techniques. Investigate your options with NLP; you'll be surprised by the difference it can make in your life!

Wealth Insight 2009-11-20 What governments don’t want you to know about inflation. Critics say that inflation is a form of theft from the people. Not just any old critics either! The most famous is probably John Maynard Keynes. Keynes is known as the father of our modern economic system. He said that inflation is a way to secretly confiscate an important part of the wealth of citizens. He said inflation is a hidden and destructive thing. And he said that it goes almost entirely... Read more...

I know I have changed over the last 49 days. In fact, a number of work colleagues and friends have commented on it.  I have completely given up reading the daily newspapers. It's given me more time in my day. Never being one to watch much TV, I watch even less and find my eldest Read more...

My established thoughts have been challenged to look at other possibilities in a way that at times provoked conflict but at the same time it was thoroughly enlightening. Each day’s lesson was eagerly read and thought over with the application of small goals which in itself was a change of the usual habit following routine. Although not a religious course, a challenge to my thinking of religious matters came about many times and I think a whole lot of understanding and simplification... Read more...

To think back 49 days is to realize “that you do not know what you don’t know”!  To now, for the first time in my life, discover the truth and nothing but the truth, is fantastic!  We know that the oldest trick the devil uses, is to take the truth and twist it a little bit – I call it the hamburger effect:  Nice, attractive lies, the twisted truth, covered by some more nice, attractive lies….and we fall for it every time? Read more...
