We all have seen NLP all over the Internet, but very few know what it stands for or what it can do for you. I was reading a post today on of my groups, and Dora brought this topic about how her mentor provide her with a book for her to read and learn from. Also being a loyal member of the Neuro-Linguistic Programming, since the late 1990s. I decided to share some of the questions and answers to NLP from the, "A Pocket Guide To NLP."
A brief description of what NLP is. The study of human excellence. By identifying in others the essential characteristics of exceptional talent, successful attitudes, and empowering beliefs, you can learn them yourself. NLP was first developed in the early 1970s by an information scientist, Richard Bandler and linguistics profess, John Grinder. From their studies of successful people, they created a way to analyze and transfer human excellence, resulting in the most powerful, practical psychology ever developed.
Questions and Answers About NLP

Most treatment is remedial, that is, directed towards solving problems from the past. NLP goes much further to study excellence and teach skills that promote positive change that generates new possibilities and opportunities.

A. Yes! One of the things NLP does best, NLP helps people transform debilitating emotions into empowering, resourceful feelings. Since many therapies are very slow, based on catharsis or "venting into your emotions," NLP offers a much more pleasant, effective way of dealing with emotions. We assist people in going through old memories in new ways, quickly transforming unpleasant experiences into productive resources.
Q. Can you use NLP on yourself?
A. Yes. You can use some NLP patterns with yourself immediately. Includes: changing your feelings, learning a new thinking strategy, changing habits, motivating yourself, and more. Other patters/techniques are primarily useful in working with others.
Q. Is NLP manipulative?
A. Since NLP is so powerful in getting results, people want to know that it will be used to benefit them. Our trainings emphasize ways to make sure the changes you help someone get are in her or his best interest. Knowing NLP gives you ways of protecting yourself from manipulation by others or the media.
I hope l have been able to provide you enough information about NLP, for you to understand it more and be able to decide if this is the type of program will improve areas of your everyday life, which you have wanted to improve or change. No one but yourself will be able to answer them question it is up to you to decide what is best for your well-being. Whatever you choose to do, always remember a program is only as good as you choose to use it, without commitment then it will never make a difference in your life.
All the Best,
