What all you can do with your brain.

You know you can choose who you want to be. But is that all you think it will take to become that person? No. You also realize that you need to crystallize what you want. You need to identify what path and method you need to follow to get there. You need to visualize your goal. But will that be enough?

You might do everything you need to do. Arrange, identify and visualize everything that needs to be done and still not get any closer to your goals. Do you know why? It is because you are bound by what you think and experience. These are unconscious cues which you might not always register but they play a big part in shaping your life.

So does that make you any different from any other person following his or her dreams? It just makes you slower or less effective. Do you want to get a head start on the rest of your life? Let me, then, introduce you to an innovative concept called Neuro Linguistic Programming.

To break it up, Neuro Linguistic Programming or NLP is ‘reprogramming’ our habits and our sensory perceptions to accelerate our goal-achieving capability.  Our experience comprises what we know, what we understand and what we do. What we know is a product of what we see, feel, hear, smell and touch.  Therefore our reality is bound by what we experience. NLP can help us to achieve what we want, by knowing and understanding reality differently.

NLP is a school of thought co-founded by Richard Bandler and John Grinder. Many interesting thoughts and turns bought these two to a crossroad where they observed the work of therapists Fritz Perls, Virginia Satir and Milton Erickson. From there, it moved on to observing successful people in various arenas of life. Observation of their work led to a new way of thinking which over the years has lead to NLP. Research into NLP has now led to quite a few different schools today. Continual research indicates how much more there is to the mind that is still to be discovered.
All this sounds great but what about the nuts and bolts, you must wonder. All this talk about mind makes NLP sound quite abstract, doesn’t it?  

Do you want to know how NLP can actually help you? What techniques are used? Does it only help for your larger goals in life? What about improving your motivation to exercise?  Or trying to quit smoking? Can you attend an introduction before you make up your mind? You can do all this and more.
