What is NLP?
NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming), is a communication model used for personal development, coaching, and psychotherapy.
NLP explains that there is a strong connection between the neurological process which is the brain activity (Neuro), our way of communication using language (Linguistic) and our behavior based on our own experiences (Programming).
If one understands these, they can easily overcome the barriers they have and can achieve amazing results they are hoping for.
By tapping into the inner resources, everyone can do wonders by eliminating all the obstacles that stop them from excelling. Some of the common obstacles are anxiety, procrastination, habits, limiting beliefs, etc. that are related to your mind and thinking.
Neuro or Neurology refers to the mind or the brain. Brain/Mind is responsible for controlling the body and thereby controlling the actions and behaviors. NLP helps you to be self-aware of your conscious actions and choices you take. Once you are self-aware of the choices you make, you can bring changes to your behaviors and actions.
It is the study of language. And language is the base for communication. Language helps us in accessing what goes on inside our mind. NLP helps in accessing our unconscious mind which remains inaccessible for us.
Everything that we do consciously like the actions, behaviors, etc. are based on what we have in our mind. It could be our habitual patterns, our beliefs, feelings, needs and so on. NLP helps in programming our mind through language patterns to make changes from how we were to how we will be.
