NLP Is used for personal development and for success in business. NLP is the practice of understanding how people organize their thinking, feeling, language and behaviour to produce the results they do. NLP provides people with a methodology to model outstanding performances achieved by geniuses and leaders in their field. A key element of NLP is that we form our unique internal mental maps of the world as a product of the way we filter and perceive information absorbed through our five senses from the world around us.
Neuro: Each individual has established their own unique mental filtering system for processing the millions of bits of data being absorbed through the senses. Our first mental map of the world is constituted of internal images; sounds, tactile awareness, internal sensations, tastes and smells that form as a result of the neurological filtering process. The first mental map is called ‘First Access’ in NLP.
Linguistic: We then assign personal meaning to the information being received from the world outside. We form our second mental map by assigning language to the internal images; sounds and feelings, tastes and smells, thus forming everyday conscious awareness. The second mental map is called ‘The Linguistic Map’ (sometimes known as Linguistic Representation).
Programming: The behavioural response that occurs as a result of neurological filtering processes and the subsequent linguistic map.
Many people study NLP to help them become more effective in their chosen field. The patterns can be employed across a wide area of applications ranging from fields as diverse as education; team building, sales, marketing, personal development, leadership and coaching. Wherever there is human interaction and growth potential, NLP can be used to develop and enhance performance.
