What is NLP?

Humm… Is it time for a change in your life, for the better?

Imagine changing your life using one of the most effective methods available, language.

You might have heard the term “NLP” or the words “Neuro Linguistic Programming” before and you might be wondering “What is NLP?” and how does this technology apply to me? To my life? To my future?

Neuro-Linguistic Programming is "The Study of the Structure of Subjective Experience and what can be calculated from it."

Wow, what does that mean to me?

Simply put, NLP was developed to understand what attributes and patterns in language that very specific, very successful, therapists were using in order to help people get over phobias, family problems and other challenges. Richard Bandler and John Grinder started with the creation of mathematical models of therapeutic language to understand what worked and what did not. To be able to replicate those models of success.

What does therapy have to do with me? I want to be more successful in what I do…

Now, you might be saying to yourself “I am not a therapist and have little interest in doing therapy.” Rest assured, NLP is not therapy. It is a meta-technology that uses the models Bandler and Grinder developed to help you better recognize how your brain works. What limits you may have and what opportunities you may be missing.

Additionally, you see the beauty of creating these models is how they were adapted to better quantify the language patterns of other successful people in other occupations. Adapted to be able to model success in business, coaching, sales, education, sports and really anyplace that people excel. As a meta-technology, it works everywhere that you use it.

It’s not about the Math or techniques it’s about my Results.

Perhaps you are not a mathematician, perhaps you do not enjoy mathematics. Not a problem because the skills that we teach are derived from the mathematics and not the calculus itself. In other words, it’s all about your patterns, words and programs. The way that you communicate with others and maybe more important the way you communicate with yourself. About changing your internal reality to open up more possibilities and opportunities for success, no matter how you define that word “success”.

Hypnosis is part of NLP and I am not sure of what that means to me.

One of the skills that we teach is hypnosis. This is one of the most misunderstood skills. People may have seen “stage hypnosis” or heard urban legends of people being controlled by others using “hypnosis”. Nothing could be further from the truth. You cannot make anyone do something while hypnotized that they would not do in a “normal” waking state.

Hypnosis is naturally occurring. Remember the last time that you got wrapped up in a book and looked at the time and it was 3:00 AM. The time that you were driving along in your car and forgot where you were. Hypnosis occurs all the time and the only question is what are you hypnotizing yourself and others into believing and by extension doing. We teach you how to recognize and control your focus to achieve more, be more and take control of your state. The challenge is not putting people into trance it’s getting them out of the trance that they are in. Replacing the limiting beliefs that you have with new more successful beliefs.
