What is Neuro Linguistic Programming?
Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) is the systemic study of human communication and how humans create their reality. NLP is often known as the study of replicating excellence, as it asks the question, how successful individuals consistently achieve the results they do. These successful people have naturally created internal productive strategies which they can repeat and map over to different areas of their life.
NLP is an approach, a methodology, and a skill set to recognize and change the structure of your habits and experience promoting ongoing personal growth.
Neuro is short for neurology. The structure of your mind and how you think, everything you experience stems from the neurological processes of your sight, hearing, smell, taste, and touch. You experience the world through your five senses; you make “sense” of the information and then act on it. By understanding neurology, you can achieve excellence in action.
Linguistic refers to language. How you use your language and how it affects you. We use language to order our thoughts and behaviors to communicate with others. Excellent communication is the basis of creating excellent results. This is true internally as well as externally.
Programming here is meaning the sequence of your internal processes, actions and outward behaviors that you use to achieve your goals. You can choose to organize your ideas and actions to produce the results you want.
