What Exactly IS “NLP”?

The acronym, “NLP” stands for Neurolinguistic Programming. NLP is a collection of processes and techniques which guide people to create patterns of success that run automatically –– at the level of the subconscious mind.

Success in any arena of life is just a decision away.

Yet it is the quality of our decisions which determine the outcome. Poor quality decisions lead to unsuccessful results.

  • The quality of our decisions is based on the quality of our thoughts …

  • The quality of our thoughts are based on the quality of our feelings ...

  • And the quality of our thoughts and our feelings is based on the quality of our beliefs.

Learning to choose the most useful emotions to accomplish the task or decision at hand, therefore, is what defines a successful and happy person. Which is exactly what NLP’s processes facilitate like no other system out there!

In a nutshell, NLP programs people to think and make decisions for their own success –– in all areas of life.

I’m Not “Programmed” Am I?

Whether you like it or not, the truth is that we have all been “programmed.”

You read that right! Good, bad or neutral, from our very earliest years, we have received a variety of programming.

Family values, beliefs and attitudes are just the beginning of this “programming.” Mass media, the education system and the culture within which you were raised all contribute to the overall programming of your subconscious mind.

This programming is akin to an operating system in a computer: A good operating system ensures the computer and all software run smoothly. An outdated or “buggy” system, on the other hand, can cause quite a lot of trouble!

So wouldn’t it be beneficial to make conscious choices about how your subconscious “operating system” is programmed? We think so, and so do the thousands of graduates who have changed their own lives and are now guiding others to reach their potential.

The NLP Advantage

NLP is referred to as the “operating manual of the human brain” for good reason.

An NLP-trained Coach has an advantage over other Life Coaches because they can “read” both the  verbal and non-verbal cues from their clients. This is the NLP Advantage.

The neurological patterns that produce our behaviors, and thus our successes, (or lack thereof), can actually be detected with careful listening and observation.

Once a person’s neurological patterns are unveiled, they can be easily and successfully adjusted to produce more desirable results. This can and often does include helping someone make extreme improvements in their skills, abilities and strategies for success.

This is why NLP has become so popular among those who aim for big life aspirations. It also explains why NLP is the foundation of today’s most effective and prominent self-help authors, motivational speakers, and coaches of human potential.

Creating Patterns for Success

NLP Coaches are masters at creating strategies and patterns for success. We work with clients to design new patterns of thought and behavior so that they can attain their goals.

Here’s how it works …

The unconscious mind is the humble servant to the conscious mind. Now, because it is a “servant” it can only do what is asked of –– based on the patterns available.

So if the only patterns the unconscious mind has available are those that lead to failure or self-sabotage, those are the patterns it will follow.

How Does NLP Help People Do Things Like Quit Smoking?

For smokers, smoking is an effort to achieve a certain feeling. It could be comfort or stress relief, relaxation or focus. Whatever it is, the “pattern” of having a cigarette is set for the subconscious mind to follow.

So when the conscious mind says, “I need to relax!” or “I am feeling really uncomfortable” the subconscious mind goes into action, grabbing a cigarette!

Now obviously, smoking as a “solution” to achieve any goal has consequences that undermine one’s health. Ultimately, it is not a pattern for success. A new pattern is required.

As masters at creating patterns for their clients’ subconscious minds to follow, guiding them to releasing the barriers to success, a trained NLP practitioner develops a new pattern for their smoking client, then “installs” it in their subconscious mind.

The result is that the smoker is able to leave behind smoking not through willpower and suffering, but as a matter of course … because the unconscious mind has a new, more resourceful pattern to follow!
