Neuro-Linguistic Programming The New Technology For Self-Improvement And Personal Success!

One of The Most Effective Self-Help Programs I Have Come Across. Neuro-Linguistic Programming is the study of human excellence, it is focused on quickly attaining the desired outcome. Chances are that most people who first come across NLP wonder what it is all about. NLP is the new technology of achievement.

Neuro Linguistic Programming NLP is the influencing of human behavior by recognizing certain skills and techniques held by individuals that excel in a particular area of life and then adopting those behaviors into your own life.

Actually, NLP stands for Neuro-Linguistic Programming, where “neuro” is something related to both mind and body, “linguistic” is about language patterns or structures and “programming” is nothing more than coordinating mind, body, and language in a way that helps you to achieve improved results in your life.

In a sense, Neuro Linguistic Programming can help you in many ways, if only you get to know its techniques and how to use them for your benefit.

I personally use NLP every day of my life as it allows me to learn new tasks at an alarming rate.

I build my self-confidence and self-esteem, I always have a positive mental attitude and I can handle the many situations life throws at me in a more positive way.

NLP is so incredibly effective because it allows you to identify the essential characteristics in people that display exceptional talents in particular areas of life.

NLP makes it possible for you to learn these talents, successful attitudes and the overwhelming strong beliefs that these talented people have in themselves and their abilities.

Neuro-Linguistic Programming is the study of the structure of subjective experience.

What this means is that if you are subjected to any particular experience in a specifically designed structure you have a much better chance of absorbing such beneficial teachings.

NLP holds that people think and act based on their internal representations of the world and not on the world itself. Meaning that we all view our lives by everything around us but only as we see it and not necessarily as it really is.

Once we understand specifically how we create and maintain our inner thoughts and feelings, it is a simple matter for us to change them to more useful ones.

Even years after I had been using NLP myself I found this program and two others like it by the same author to be extremely helpful with the understanding of all the research and science behind the program.

If you are interested in learning more about Neuro-Linguistic Programming I would recommend you try out any one of these programs.

Thousands of people swear by Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) to create a lifetime of success.

Now experience this powerful, practical psychology for personal and professional growth for yourself with two of the country’s top NLP trainers as your guides.

Neuro-Linguistic Programming The Origin of This New Self-Help Program

Neuro-Linguistic Programming was first developed in the early 1970s by an information scientist, Richard Bandler, and a linguistics professor, John Grinder.

From their studies of successful people, they created a way to analyze and transform human excellence, resulting in the most powerful, practical psychology ever developed.

NLP is a practical application of how people think. Described as “software for your brain” it allows you to automatically tap into the kinds of experiences you want to have.

With NLP you can create your own future, and you can have choices about your feelings, especially when it matters most.

A state of the art communications method for nurturing personal and professional growth, Neuro-Linguistic Programming creates an environment for graceful personal change.

The Fundamental Principles of Neuro-Linguistic Programming:


What does that word mean to you?

Imagine yourself without influence and you quickly realize that it is one of the most important skills you can learn.

Creating Irresistible Influence with NLP can open up an exciting new dimension in your life.

One that can make life a more fulfilling adventure than you have ever imagined.

All you have to do is apply this knowledge and make meaningful influence the magic that transforms your life!

  • The map is not the territory.

We respond to our thoughts and memories. These are our internalized map of reality. However, these maps are not true reality.

  • Experience has a structure.

When we change the structure, the experience will automatically change.

  • People work perfectly.

People are always making the best choices available to them. People already have all the resources they need.

  • Anyone can do anything.

If one person can do something, anyone can learn to do that same thing. When there is a physical or environmental limit, the world of experience will let us know.

  • Mind and body are parts of the same system.
  • You cannot NOT communicate.

We are always communicating, at least non-verbally. Even thoughts are in communication with the self.

The meaning of your communication is the response you get. Communication is not what is intended, but what is received.

Underlying every behavior is a positive intention.

The person or element with the most flexibility in a system will have the most influence. Neuro-Linguistic Programming gives you flexibility.

There is no such thing as failure, when things don’t go as planned you should learn from the experience and never lose focus towards your goal. One should consider failure as feedback for the next step towards your desired outcome.

NLP and Changed Perceptions

Neuro-Linguistic Programming is a powerful tool for developing your personality traits and characteristics as those are what determine your verbal and non-verbal reactions to the happenings in this world.

As a first step, let us understand that your perception of reality is based on your subjectivity.

Just as a map is merely a miniature representation of territory, what you perceive as real is only a colored representation of reality, not the reality itself.

You can’t help but look at the world through rose-colored glasses.

Your reactions are dictated not by reality but by your view of that reality. Each of us has our own perceptions of the situations and circumstances that make up our lives.

Neuro-Linguistic Programming helps you in realizing this and reducing, if not completely removing, your subjectivity.

You will then consider adopting alternative viewpoints of reality and, consequently, bringing about a shift in the way you react to it.

Why do people react differently to a particular event or situation?

Is it not because of the differences in their individual perceptions of that event or situation?

What a traumatic event is to one may not be the same to another.

For instance, some people may take verbal or physical abuse lightly or simply ignore it.

Others may be so affected by it that they need psychological or medical treatment.

The underlying philosophy of Neuro-Linguistic Programming is based on the premise that it is possible to change one’s perceptions, beliefs and behavior so that traumatic experiences become possible to treat.

It is also possible that you might even become immune to trauma.

Eliminate Specific Phobias And Stress

Thousands of people swear by Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP) to create a lifetime of success.

Now experience this powerful, practical psychology for personal and professional growth for yourself — with two of the country’s top NLP trainers as your guides.

You can similarly get rid of your phobias, if any, by going into the factors that cause your fear in the first place, with the help of NLP techniques.

You can look at things in the way that your adversaries do. You can consider the same things from a totally new perspective.

Or, you can study people who have achieved excellence in any particular aspect of their life, find out what qualities and factors contributed to their success and then import the same or similar factors and qualities into your life in an effort to achieve excellence in your chosen field.

You can lower your levels of unhappiness or raise the levels of happiness by transforming your belief portfolio, your preconceived notions, your language patterns that display your innermost feelings, your unconscious mind that exposes your conscious reactions to the external world, and so on.

In short, Neuro-Linguistic Programming transforms you into a new you, a happier you and a more effective you, capable of dealing with this world in a much better way than before.

One that can make life a more fulfilling adventure than you have ever imagined. All you have to do is apply this knowledge and make meaningful influence the magic that transforms your life!

Neuro Linguistic Programming can help you become adept in whatever is important to you, whether that means getting along with your family or co-workers or being more effective on the job.

NLP lets you model human excellence in any form. It is an overall powerful system for improving oneself personal development at any level.

Neuro-Linguistic Programming is based on many useful studies that support the attitude that change is imminent. One of the most important is, NLP is about what works, not what should work.

In other words, if what you are doing is not working, try something else, anything else, regardless of whether what you had been doing should have worked.

Flexibility is the key element in a given system, the one who is most likely to do well responds to changing and possibly challenging circumstances.

That’s one reason NLP has made so much progress in an area where such is not the norm.

Innovative thinking means you are willing to give new ideas some intelligent thought, not just brush them off without giving it a try.

NLP is much more interested in results and giving people what they want from life, so it is those who thrive on innovative thinking that will be most accepting of Neuro-Linguistic Programming.

You can begin to improve your relationships with loved ones, learning to teach effectively, gaining a stronger sense of self-esteem, greater motivation, better understanding of communication, enhancing your business or career, and an enormous amount of other things that involve the use of your brain.

Just a Few More General Principles.

This extraordinary program will empower you to transform your excuses into optimistic beliefs, develop an invincible attitude, and achieve the life you dream of right here, right now, using the remarkable mind technology known as NLP.

NLP is a model rather than a theory and it is the study of subjective experience.

NLP is a generative rather than a repair model it emphasizes on finding solutions rather than analyzing causes and in NLP we always add choices, rather than take these away.

  • Mind and body are part of the one system
  • All human behavior has a structure
  • External behavior is the result of how a person uses their representational systems.
  • If one human can do something then, potentially, anyone can.

Conscious mind capacity is very limited, whereas the subconscious mind can store an infinite amount of information.

Clues To a Person’s Inner Activity.

Neuro-linguistic programming is renowned for the attention we give to how a person demonstrates their use of their five senses, their representational systems.

This is because everything we experience is represented internally in our nervous system.

Without our being consciously aware of it our five senses are constantly receiving and processing information about the world about and within us.

Due to the fact that the mind and body are part of an interactive system, anything that happens in one part of the system affects all parts of the system.

We cannot, for example, have a thought without having a physical response to that thought.

If I remember a feeling, or talk to myself about something or imagine a forthcoming event I will use my senses or representational systems, and this will be apparent to a skilled NLP practitioner in my use of certain words or phrases, how I use my eyes, my voice tonality, and even my breathing.

So in Neuro-Linguistic Programming, we recognize that people are continuously communicating information about what they are doing internally or rather their inner processing.

And this information is available for those who have the ability to discern it, who have taken the time to develop their sensory acuity and their ability to calibrate to or recognize the personal significance of, our external behavior.

In very simple terms NLP is studying the behaviors of successful individuals in their chosen field and then using the Neuro-Linguistic Programming techniques to integrate those skills into your life.

Hi Asaad,

I apologize for the delay with my response I am going through some difficult medical issues and I can only use my computer at certain times otherwise the nurses confiscate it.

In response to your question absolutely YES!! NLP is extremely powerful for making positive and permanent changes in all areas of personal development. If you read through the two articles on the site it should give you a pretty good idea about how to start using the NLP techniques for improving your self-esteem and self-concept. The process is actually rather easy it involves you using visualization exercises where you practice seeing yourself acting as the person you wish to be in your minds eye.

I can only give you a quick and simplistic response at the moment but I will try to find some of my older notes and create a 5 to 10 page eBook and link it to the bottom of this post. However in the mean time you can use the tips in the 2 articles already posted and began to practice and strengthen your visualization skills because that plays a major role when using Neuro Linguistic Programming for creating lasting and positive changes to your life.

I hope this helps.
Take Care and God Bless!

Asaad 2 September 18, 2013

Hi Kiran,

I apologize for taking so long to respond I am in and out of the hospital so much it is hard to keep up sometimes.

You ABSOLUTELY can improve your life and Neuro Linguistic Programming can definitely help however I think you should work on a few other things first.

From reading your comment it is more than apparent that you place very little value on yourself. You have to work on changing your self-talk. Be kind to yourself and don’t let the little voice in your head criticize you or put you down in any way. You need to start seeing your own self-worth and you need to believe in yourself. If you keep thinking and talking the way you are you will never pull yourself up to the standards that you desire.

I just wrote an article that I think will really help you as long as you follow the steps I laid out. Right now your self-esteem is very low and until you improve your self-esteem nothing else in your life will change. Please read the following article everyday and take action on the things I explain and I guarantee you will soon begin to feel better about yourself.

It is hard to live the life we desire when we have such a low opinion of ourselves so the first thing we have to do is change that opinion and you can do that. Just click right here: Improve Your Self-Esteem In 7 Easy Steps and it will take you straight to the article.

Please come back and let me know how you are doing after you work on this for a while.

Take Care My Friend!

Everyone has my permission to share this recipe.

* * * * * * * * Forgiveness, a recipe for sharing. * * * * * * * *.

These ingredients, and the directions for use, may vary with the strength.
… of your imagination.

Select a container, such as a plastic spice bottle.
Label it: Forgiveness.

Add some cornstarch or cocoa to your container, or you may want to make.
up something… like scented powdered sidewalk chalk, or add glitter.

You may find it helpful to add some, “Directions for Use”, such as:

1 Accidents do happen, and sometimes we break things, or hearts, unintentionally.
2 It can be much easier to make mistakes, than it is to admit and correct our mistakes.
Are you the first one to make this mistake; would you want to be the last one?
3 When you make, or find your mistake, sprinkle just enough of this “Forgiveness”.
on it to mark it plainly as yours, and prevent the cat, or anyone else from being blamed.
4 Leave the mistake in plain view until everyone sees you prefer to deal with it honestly;.
and honorably accept the responsibility for it.
5 Mistakes may pay for themselves more fairly through exposure; we waste a potential.
benefit of our mistakes by hiding them.
6 By sharing the gift of our mistakes with others, we may help some to make better.
and more rewarding choices.
7 Concealing a mistake may cause many other mistakes, perhaps ones even more.
difficult to live with, or to correct.
8 The value of mistakes is in understanding the lessons they are trying to teach us.
9 Genuinely participate in discussing how to avoid making this mistake again.
Ask for, and get, all the help you need.
10 Forgiving ourselves, may prove to be the most difficult part of making a mistake.
11 We may find forgiving our own mistakes easier after some practice, in forgiving.
the mistakes made by others.
12 Forgiveness feels good, whenever it is given, observed, or received.
13 The unforgivable; fail to ask, accept, or give their Forgiveness.

“Forgiveness is one of, “The best things in life [that] are free”.

This may only be one, of a more complete set, of Virtues.

What would our children and grandchildren do… with bottles of:
Enthusiasm, Courage, Hope, and such, along with Forgiveness?

“Use your Imagination, Stevie!”.

“Can’t, Granny borrowed it, yesterday.”.

Happy New Year,


Howard Platt 13 February 1, 2012
