Neuro-Linguistic Programming

It’s difficult to describe what Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) is besides awesome! It is how a person uses their language towards themselves and others to get the life they are living. Language can be used to impact people’s lives in positive or negative ways. That’s words you use for yourself and others and how others use words with you.

Some people cope creatively and effectively and perceive a wide range of options open to them in any given situation, in choosing their actions. Other people, experience themselves with few options, none of which are attractive to them. The world is not limited but the people who block themselves from seeing options and possibilities because of their internal thoughts and beliefs. NLP is a way of accessing those changes.

Funny story I heard from Robert Dilts, A police officer receives an urgent summons to a local residence to handle a reported incident of domestic violence. The officer is on alert because she knows that it is in these types of situation that she is actually in the most physical danger. People, especially violent, angry people, don’t want the police interfering in their family affairs. As she approached the apartment, the police officer hears shouting and screaming coming from inside. A man is yelling loudly, and the office hears the sound of various objects being broken along with terrified screams of a woman. Suddenly, a TV comes crashing through the front window, smashing into pieces on the ground in front of her. The police officer rushes to the door and begins to pound on it as hard as she can. She hears an enraged male voice from inside the apartment shouting, “Who the hell is that?” Eyeing the pieces of the mangled TV spread over the ground the police officer blurts out, “TV repairman” There is a moment of dead silence inside the apartment. Finally, the man breaks out in laughter. He opens the door and the police officer can make her intervention, avoiding further conflict.
