What is Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)?

Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) is an art and science developed and co-created by
Richard Bandler and John Grinder in California, United States, in the 1970s. This is a
methodology that uses a combination of Neuro-linguistic programming techniques based on
many theories Bandler and Grinder chose to include.
(Theories of Noam Chomskyl, Gregory Bateson, Alfred Korzbski, as well as Carlos Castaneda.)
Neuro-linguistic programming has also been created with a range of powerful techniques
such as hypnotherapy based on the NLP modelling exercise by Milton Erickson – the famous
hypnotherapist whose exercises have produced powerful results in people.
Richard Bandler particularly highlighted how different people can produce different results
in life. For example, a person equipped with the same basic knowledge as another may
create different results. This is what separates successful people from those unable to
understand their struggle. Their NLP programs highlight the importance of communication
with self, individuals, and others.
Bandler and Grinder found out what successful people do and used the combination of
Neuro (Neurology), Linguistic (language) and added the word Programming (the function of
our thoughts, experiences, emotions) to create NLP and offer the knowledge via NLP
certification. NLP displays how success need not always be a result of one’s education or
intelligence alone. Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) is about the habitual and
unconscious patterns we display and being aware of them, modifying them to make things
work in our favor.
An NLP certification equips you to manage your thoughts and emotions while using
techniques such as visualization to work on the way you think. A majority of our thoughts
are based on beliefs and fears, and things we learned in childhood.
For example, a child who is told, “You are too stupid,” may grow up feeling insecure about
learning more in life.

Neuro-linguistic programming techniques can thus be modeled, which means, a person with
a constantly negative display can change thinking to stop behaviors that bring no success.
