NLP, also known as Neuro-Linguistic Programming, is different from traditional self-growth methods, positive thinking, and psychotherapies in that it focuses on what work, and relies on a method called modeling to copy and teach success. At its core, NLP centers on the belief that language links with the body and mind to form perception.NLP presupposes that you have all the resources that you need in order to effect positive change.From that core, there will be steps that have been formulated for the purpose of supporting people to redevelop or change how they perceive themselves and the world around them.
NLP also assumes that people are not broken and in fact, they work perfectly and this is true for even burglars, thieves, and alcoholics work perfectly.Take, for example, the case of someone who has a self-limiting belief that they’re a bad learner.They have been told that they are bad in math or any other subject.In this scenario, they have been the victim of a limitation that they have set for themsselves and prevent from learning things in this aspect. Since another presupposition of neuro-linguistic programming is that you have all the resources at your disposal to make a change, you would focus on modeling the behaviors and beliefs of people who are better learners.
Since NLP is based on what works, and not just a theory, it also uses the idea that if what you’re doing isn’t working, then adapt and change what you’re doing.Tony Robbins made his own brand of NLP-based self-improvement, and became very well known for showing people how to achieve quick turn-arounds.There are free resources online where you can learn the basic methods and principles, and many practitioners you can work with to take things to the next level. People elect to undergo NLP treatment for various reasons.More importantly, NLP helps you to become an effective humans being.
The NLP technique is a form of hypnosis which makes use of a deep relaxation, suggestive words, regulated breathing, visual, audio, calming nonverbal cues, and other sensory stimuli, as well as active mental exercises in order to redevelop the process of perception. Hypnosis has been in use in conjunction with other treatments in treating the psychiatric population for many years. Many of the books and videos on relaxation, meditation, regulated breathing, and positive thinking are good resource tools and are filled with information you can use to reduce the stress in your life.
Regrettably, hypnosis is also featured in comedy routines at comedy clubs across the country and the comedians use the high suggestibility of some people to get them to perform funny things such as barking like a dog just to get a laugh and there is nothing wrong with comedy or humor.
Our perceptions control how we receive informational messages from other people and our surroundings. The way that we perceive ourselves and the world that surrounds us is developed during childhood and the family and social environments and experiences encountered influence perception as it develops, so interactions through language, both the spoken and unspoken forms within our environment and our experiences also influence perception as it is developing.
Through NLP, even those with physical and emotional disorders can redevelop their process of perception.
