What is Neuro Linguistic Programming?
NLP stands for ‘Neuro Linguistic Programming’ and was created in the 1970’s by Richard Bandler and John Grinder, based largely on the modelling work of Richard Bandler. Neuro linguistic programming is the study of successful internal and external behaviours and the thought patterns that produce them.
As the name suggests, Neuro-Linguistic Programming involves our neurology, language and our behavioural responses to external and / or internal stimuli. Logically, the name is derived as follows:
From the nervous system through which our experiences are received and processed.
From language and non-verbal communication systems through which neural representations are coded, ordered and given meaning.
The ability to organise our communication and neurological systems to achieve specific desired goals and results.
NLP as a collection of models, techniques and strategies for modelling excellence, in order to help us better understand how our thought processes and behaviour, including how the language we use, influences the way we think and the results we get. Modelling excellence in any field enables us to learn, move forward from anything holding you back and bring about a positive change in ourselves and others.
Dr. Bandler found that by studying professionals who were excellent in their field (whether that be in business or therapy), he was able to understand and codify the structure of what they were doing in order to achieve the results they did. To put it another way, it’s how someone is thinking and acting in order to produce a successful result and teaching others how to model this.
Neuro-Linguistic Programming often incorporates hypnosis and self-hypnosis to help achieve the change (or "programming") that is wanted and is not static, it is being continuously developed and refined by Richard Bandler, and good practitioners.
Memorable Quotes from Richard Bandler (co-creator of NLP):
NLP is an attitude which is an insatiable curiosity about human beings with a methodology that leaves behind it a trail of techniques.
The easier you can make it inside your head, the easier it will make things outside your head.
The best thing about the past is that it’s over. The best thing about the future is that it’s yet to come. The best thing about the present is that it’s here now.
