What is NLP?
NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) is an extremely effective way of making lasting rapid change in your life. It is interested in how to make change as simple as possible, focusing on HOW the PRESENT & the FUTURE can be different rather than spending too much time asking WHY we have issues and dragging up the PAST, so it makes change an intriguing and often fun process.
What is the origin of NLP?
The concept on NLP was brought into light by John Grinder and Richard Bandler in 1970. Their theory and work inspired by Milton Erickson, Virginia Satir and Fritz Perls. Richard and John had this belief that there is a connection between an individual’s deep buried thoughts and existing imagination, and this existing imagination could be hacked into if one had the means to comprehend their hidden thoughts. The theory of NLP evolved around the idea that with systematic analysis of an individual’s conscious as well as unconscious memories, it was possible to use this analysis in order to achieve success. However, as easy as the concept sounds, there was still a complication. This complication is the lack of knowledge of the extent of one’s potential and capacities that are essential for taking control of the mind and thus life
It’s concerned with:
- Neurology – the way our brains and minds work
- Linguistic – the way language affects the way our brains and minds work
- Programming – how our brain often seems to be working, sometimes against us, in very automated ways
How can NLP benefit you?
NLP is as beneficial in practice as the theory makes it sound. It is a healthy practice to indulge in. The results are positive and quick. NLP can be seen as an exquisite blend of art and science as it carries merits of both the fields. Digging into an individual’s unconscious memory is a thing of art, and the brain’s customisation in response to the digging is the science. Its merits apply to not only the mental ability, but physical as well, as motivation and realisation of the extent of potential is the key to success. Therefore, NLP shows positive results for sportsmen as well as laborer’s whose work demands physical exertion. They can achieve as much as their mind is set upon and NLP does the work of pushing these limits
