NeuroLinguistic Programming (NLP) is a powerful tool of transformation, help you have better, fuller and richer life, it’s like your brain operate on a computer program and NLP reprogram your brain to acheive what you desire effortlessly.
NLP was created by Richard Bandler a mathematitian and linguist Jhon Grinder,”Neuro-Linguistic Programming” to emphasize their belief in a connection between the neurological processes “neuro”, language “linguistic” and behavioral patterns that have been learned through experience “programming”)and can be organized to achieve specific goals in life.
NLP addresses the many levels involved in being human. NLP is a multi-dimensional process that involves the development of behavioral competence and flexibility, but also involves strategic thinking and an understanding of the mental and cognitive processes behind behavior. NLP provides tools and skills for the development of states of individual excellence, but it also establishes a system of empowering beliefs and presuppositions about what human beings are, what communication is and what the process of change is all about.
Presuppositions are beliefs that someone practicing NLP will find useful for creating changes in themselves and the world, more easily and effectively. The emphasis here should be on “useful” not whether each one could be proven to be “true”.
Practitioners of NLP often include different presuppositions in their list but what follows are the most common.
- Communication is more than what you’re saying,The body communicates constantly in ways that go far beyond words, 80% of language is non verbal, and only 20% is verbal.
- People are like map makers and people’s maps are made of picture, sounds, feeling, tastes and smells, some maps are out of awareness.
- The map is not the territory.
- People already have all the resources they need to effect a change.
- Choice is better than no choice. people make the best choice available to them.
- chunking small chunks to learn big stuff.
- Every behavior serves a positive intention and a context in which it has value.
- The behavior may never lead to that positive intention but that part of you can learn new behaviors that do. As to a context that has value,
- There is no such thing as failure, only feedback.
- Every response is useful, you may hate the response but the knowledge you gain from it is valuable.
- If someone can do something, then it can be modeled and taught to anyone else, if it’s possible in the world, it’s possible for you.
- The meaning of your communication is the response you get, the quality of our lives determined by the quality of our communication.
- If you get slapped, try anything else,If you aren’t getting the response you want, try something different.
- People work perfectly to produce the results they are getting.
- mind, body,emotions and spirit are part of the same system and affect each other.
- No one is “broken”. They are functioning perfectly in what they are doing now (even if it is ruining their life), it’s a matter of finding how they function now, so that we can help them change into doing something they consider more desirable.
