Life Coach Enquirer e1486641325949 - Neuro Linguistic ProgrammingHello Mamta.
Life Coaching AnswersHello Amit.
Life Coach Enquirer e1486641325949 - Neuro Linguistic ProgrammingMamta, I have heard that NLP can help me transform my life. Can you tell me something about NLP?
Life Coaching AnswersSure Amit. There is no single definition of NLP or Neuro Linguistic Programming. NLP has been defined in different ways. Some call it practical psychology; many define it as the study of excellence while some practitioners say it is a manual for the mind.
Life Coach Enquirer e1486641325949 - Neuro Linguistic ProgrammingI am even more confused now!

Life Coaching AnswersLet me make it simpler for you. N in NLP stands for Neuro which means our Nervous system or the neurological processes which create our experience of the world with the help of our five senses.L in NLP stands for linguistics or language. Language, here, doesn’t just mean English, Hindi, French or German, but any language we use to communicate with others or with self. For example, body language, tone, images and even silence. So let’s say, in order to remember GOD, I see God’s image in my mind. This image is also an example of a language. Not just this but we also use language to assign meaning to our experiences.

P in NLP refers to Programming which is the resultant behaviour of the connection between language and neurons. Putting it simply, programming refers to the empowering and dis-empowering habits, behaviour patterns and strategies that we generally follow instinctively and unconsciously.

Putting the three together, NLP helps you uncover patterns that you follow and the patterns that are followed by others. Uncovering these patterns can help you to change the ones that are problematic and replicate the ones that are patterns of excellence, the patterns which have helped you or others achieve success in the past. As you start studying and uncovering the patterns followed by geniuses or successful people, you begin to understand how they do what they do that makes them a genius or a success. Once you know how they do what they do, well… you can start modelling them i.e. start doing the same to get the results that they are getting.

Neuro-Linguistic Programming describes the fundamental dynamics between mind (Neuro) and language (Linguistic) and how their interplay affects our body and behaviour (Programming).

In other words, NLP can be used by people from any walk of life at any age to identify and apply patterns of excellence to achieve success.

Life Coach Enquirer e1486641325949 - Neuro Linguistic ProgrammingI can understand to some extent but can you explain with an example?

Life Coaching AnswersImagine going to a restaurant in a foreign country and you think you ordered soup, but when the food shows up, it turns out to be a salad.This is the kind of relationship that most of us have with our own mind. You might think you are “ordering” more money, great relationships and more peace but in a language, your mind doesn’t understand, and something else keeps showing up.

Life Coach Enquirer e1486641325949 - Neuro Linguistic ProgrammingThat sounds familiar!
Life Coaching AnswersNow if you can learn how to communicate what you want properly, you can get what you want, can’t you?
Life Coach Enquirer e1486641325949 - Neuro Linguistic ProgrammingI think so.

Life Coaching AnswersIn fact, go ahead and think of some behaviour you could change, what would it be?

  • Would you like to remain confident during presentations at work?
  • Would you like to quit procrastinating and start doing what you decided to do a month ago?
  • Would you like to stop eating that evening junk snack?

You want to, you even try, but you can’t. Regardless of the habit or behaviour, remember that your mind does what it does only because it thinks that’s what you want. So, you say you want to be confident or active or healthy, but your mind interprets it differently, keeping you away from the desired result.

Neuro-Linguistic Programming is like a user’s manual for your mind. Taking the NLP training is like learning the language of your mind so that you can communicate with your mind fluently in that language.

That is what NLP is.

Life Coach Enquirer e1486641325949 - Neuro Linguistic ProgrammingWho created NLP?

Life Coaching AnswersRichard Bandler and John Grinder created NLP in the United States in the 1970s after they studied the work done by Fritz Perls (the creator of gestalt therapy), Virginia Satir (internationally renowned family therapist) and Milton Erickson (founder of the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis).Over the years, NLP had developed some very powerful tools and skills for communication and change in a wide range of professional areas, such as counselling, psychotherapy, education, health, creativity, law, management, sales, leadership and parenting.
