NLP

NLP stands for Neuro-Linguistic Programming. Neuro refers to your neurology; Linguistic refers to language; programming refers to how that neural language functions. In other words, NLP is like learning the language of your own mind!

Let’s make this simpler with an example.

Have you ever tried to communicate with someone who didn’t speak your language, and they couldn’t understand you? The classic example of this is when someone goes out to a restaurant in a Foreign country and they think they ordered steak, but when the food shows up, it turns out they actually asked for liver stew.

This is the kind of relationship that most of us have with our own unconscious mind. We might think we are “ordering up” more money, a happy, healthy relationship, peace with our family members, and being able to stick to a healthy diet…but unless that’s what showing up, then something is probably getting lost in translation.

In NLP, there is a saying: the conscious mind is the goal setter, and the unconscious mind is the goal getter. Your unconscious mind is not out to get you–rather, it’s out TO GET FOR YOU whatever you want in life. However, if you don’t know how to communicate what you want properly, it will keep bringing you what you might not want.

In fact, go ahead right now and think of, if there was one thing you could change, one habit you could break, what would it be?

  • Would you remain calm during work presentations?
  • Stop spending so much time on Facebook?
  • Not devour a whole bag of crisps or a packet of biscuits in one sitting?

Whatever it is, realise that your unconscious mind only does that because it thinks that’s what you want.

Neuro-Linguistic Programming is like a user’s manual for the brain, and can help you to become fluent in the language of your mind so that the ever-so-helpful “server” that is your unconscious will finally understand what you actually want out of life.

People transform their lives every single day. So what are you waiting for? A happy, fulfilling life is just a click away. Let’s do this, right now!
