Neuro Linguistic Programming

Neuro Linguistic Programming

If you have goals that haven't been achieved and dreams that haven't been realized either in your personal life or professional life, you may want to consider Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP). Don't make the mistake of viewing your personal life and professional life as two distinct lives lived by the same person. Truthfully, they go hand-in-hand. NLP will teach you how to identify and remove the roadblocks that are holding you back once and for all.

What is NLP?

There is no singular definition of Neuro Linguistic Programming to summarize its meaning. In a sense, there are as many definitions of NLP as there are people practicing it (that's a lot of definitions!). For example, you may have heard of NLP Anchoring, NLP Swish Pattern, or NLP Modalities. With such as loosely-defined term, why would anybody want to learn it? Better yet, why would anybody want to spend money to master NLP when they don't even know exactly what its definition is? Because its results are definite!

NLP is like an owner's manual that gives you how-to instructions for using your brain in any given situation. NLP is a tool that can help you reach your full potential in your personal and professional life. Whatever's holding you back; mastering NLP can give you the breakthrough you need. People who practice NLP report significant improvements at work and at home. Still, to get a better definition or understanding of NLP, let's look at the term "Neuro Linguistic Programming." Let's look at each word separately.


Neuro has to do with our nervous system. Neurology includes our physical, mental, and emotional workings. The neurological process, with the help of the five senses (sight, hearing, touch, smell, and taste), creates our experience in the world.


Linguistic is where we assign language to make the meaning of our experience in this world. Language determines how we interact and communicate with others and how we talk to ourselves.


Our programming is the result and behavior from our experience in the world and the meaning we assign to it.

The Best Definition of NLP by its Co-Creator

Perhaps the best definition of NLP was assigned to it by its co-creator, Richard Bandler. He said regarding NLP, "It's an attitude and methodology that leaves behind a trail of techniques." The attitude is the need and curiosity to find out how things work. The methodology is the modeling process that was created by Richard Bandler and John Grinder in the early 1970s. The trail of techniques is the process that has been developed since.
