What is Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)

NLP is the study of effective patterns in communication. Total Money Magnetism   It was started by Richard Bandler and John Grinder who wanted to methodically reproduce the success of Milton Erikson, father of modern-day hypnosis, Virginia Satir, internationally famous for family therapy, and Fritz Perls, founder of Gestalt Therapy. The methodologies in NLP have been applied to many diverse areas, including: therapy, public speaking, politics, sports, teaching, student learning, marketing, business negotiations and sales. NLP covers a wide range of topics, including: word choices in speech and thought, body language, trance states for teaching or learning, goal setting, story-telling and more. Indeed, any arena where words are used to give information, alter opinion, or elicit decisions have been influenced by NLP. NLP helps to provide choices as to how that information affects us and understand how and why others may react differently to the same information.

Communication is the message received - not your intentions. We've all been involved in some communication where the message received was completely different from what we intended. For example, someone once commented to me on how small my textbook is. I started to get defensive, when they clarified themselves that they appreciated the brevity and succinctness of the book. It is ultimately your responsibility for the communication as it is received by the listener.

Approximately two million bits of information are bombarding our senses every moment [1]. Since we can only handle between 5 and 9 pieces of information at a time [1], we handle all this input by generalizing, deleting, or distorting each piece of information. This process is performed differently by each individual based on their own experiences, values, beliefs, and attitudes and produces an emotional state within the individual which in turn affects the way they behave. By carefully choosing our words, we can help ensure the communication is received as we intend.
