What is NLP? (Neuro Linguistic Programming)


“NLP is an explicit and powerful model of human experience and
communication. Using the principles of NLP it is possible to describe any
human activity in a detailed way that allows you to make many deep and lasting
changes quickly and easily.” Richard Bandler and John Grinder (Founders of NLP)

NLP is short for Neuro-Linguistic Programming. The name sounds high
tech, yet it is purely descriptive.

Neuro refers to neurology, our nervous system - the mental pathways
our five senses take which allow us to see, hear, feel, taste and smell.

Linguistic refers to our language ability; how we put together words
and phrases to express ourselves, as well as how our "silent language"
of movement and gestures reveals our states, thinking styles and more.

Programming, taken from computer science, refers to the idea that
our thoughts, feelings and actions are like computer software programs.
When we change those programs, just as when we change or upgrade
software, we immediately get positive changes in our performance. We
get immediate improvements in how we think, feel, act and behave.
