Neuro Linguistic Programming is considered a road map for the brain in the terms of helping you achieve your goals. We are all taught mathematics, history and a host of other subjects, but we are never taught how to achieve success, be a happy productive person or create harmonize relationships. NLP can help with these things.
What Does Neuro-Linguistic Programming Do for People?
Neuro-Linguistic Programming can teach you skills that will help you use your brain and emotions to create a life that is successful and happy. These skills help in your relationships with other people and increases your communication abilities. The skills learned will help you improve how you think, how you feel and how you behave. NLP is a expanding range of knowledge with outstanding techniques for achieving your life’s goals. NLP will also help you do whatever you do now better and it will also help you learn and master things you do not do now, but would like to. You will also be able to think more clearly, communicate better, control your moods, thoughts and behaviors easily and effectively.
NLP is About Modeling Human Behavior
Many people refer to Neuro Linguistic Programming as the study of success, science of achievement, and the technology of the mind. NLP is the study of what makes one person successful and another person a failure. What NLP does is study how successful people in all walks of life achieve their success. NLP then takes the approach that you can model these same habits and techniques that they used to achieve your own success. The net benefit of this model is it becomes a super highway to the practitioners success. You can learn in as little as couple hours what the experts have taken years to learn.
NLP received its name from Richard Bandler and John Grinder. The title came about as Neuro – The connection that are between the mind and body through neurological processes. Linguistic – Patterns of behavior and language that a person has learned from experience. And, Programming – The programming refers to conditioned behaviors that are imprinted on each and everyone of us.
Neuro-Linguistic Programming first came about in the 1970’s as a form of therapy that was able to tackle a wide area of problems that included depression, phobias, learning disorders and so on. NLP also brought to light the ability for an individual to bring out his true potential by overcoming previous learned limitations.
How Neuro Linguistic Programming Works to Enhance Human Behavior
As described earlier, we are all beings of conditioning. Obviously if we have positive and empowering traits and behaviors conditioned into our nervous system, then that is great. But the reality is, we all have certain negative or limiting conditioning also, such as fears and phobias, ways of acting or thinking that in some way causes hurt and harm to ourselves or others, and unconscious blocks that are stopping us from achieving our goals. If most or everything that we are a result of conditioning, then it would obviously be very beneficial to uncover whatever limiting conditioning is present and replace that with something positive. This is where NLP comes in very handy because its techniques and strategies were specifically made for this purpose.
Neuro Linguistic Programming helps you, or rather, your nervous system, disassociate itself from the limiting patterns it has coded and stored. To put it simply, it helps break the old limiting patterns that are not serving you positively anymore. Once that is done, NLP further helps by integrating and conditioning into your nervous system, the positive patterns that you want that will help you as you move forward. In case it is not clear to you yet, whatever is conditioned into your nervous system or mind, runs under automation. Things like smoking, biting your finger nails, being terrified of snakes, allergies, habits of procrastination, etc are all conditioned into your nervous system and all it takes for the pattern of behavior or fear etc to run, is certain conditions in your environment being met. So I’m sure you realize that it would be tremendously beneficial to remove all that limiting conditioning now.
