What is Neuro Linguistic Programming?

There has long been a belief among those who study success and motivation that there is a definite link between what we say, what we believe, and what we are...or become. Recent studies have shown that this link does exist and that "what we say" can be in the form of thoughts as well as the spoken word. Additionally, these thoughts and words can be spoken by us, to ourselves.

Just as good advice to a friend can change the course of their life or alter their beliefs about the world, or themselves, what we say to ourselves can do the same.

This is the basis of Neuro Linquistic Programming, or NLP, as it is often called.

Many motivational experts and professional life coaches, such as bodybuilder Tom Venuto, and success coach, Anthony Robbins, rely heavily on the tenets of NLP to help their readers and listeners achieve success in their own lives.

The study of neuro linguistic programming has also been studied by therapists who use it to establish a rapport with their patients or clients. "Efficiency experts" use NLP to help improve both workplace relations as well as work performance itself.

Additionally, both employers and potential employees have turned to NLP to improve their respective chances of finding, or being, the right individual for the available jobs.

Considering the power that knowing, or effectively using, neuro linguistic programming puts in the hands of the individual, it is not surprising that an entire industry of neuro linguistic programmers has arisen.  While formal courses exist, many simply learn from easy obtainable and available resources such as NLP For DummiesNeuro-linguistic Programming For Dummies (For Dummies (Psychology & Self Help)), and Success with NLP, both easily available online.

While I learned about NLP years ago, my own personal interest in health and fitness led me to the work of Tom Venuto, creator of the highly successful "Burn the Fat Body Transformation System", who also relies on the ideas of NLP to help provide much of the motivational aspect of his weight loss program.
