The Many Benefits of Neuro Linguistic Programming
Neuro Linguistic Programming has been around for some time, and there are now teachers of this method all over the world. There are also many books, articles and videos on it, so we can assume there’s a strong demand for information about it. The reason for this is that NLP can help people in a wide variety of ways, whether for their careers or personal lives. This article will discuss just a few of the advantages you can gain by studying and applying NLP to your life.
Neuro Linguistic Programming can be a good way to quit a certain habit, whether it’s smoking, drinking or overeating. You can reprogram your mind to change the way you feel about a certain food or substance so that you no longer want to indulge in it. Let’s say you have a weakness for a certain food that’s making it hard for you to stay on your diet. While many NLP techniques have you replace a negative image with a positive one, in this case you want to do the reverse. You should connect or anchor the food you love with something you strongly dislike. If you practice doing this, you’ll soon lose your craving for this food.
Neuro Linguistic Programming teaches a great deal about how we use our senses. It also shows us that most people use some of their senses more than others. The majority of people are primarily visual, auditory or kinesthetic, meaning they rely mostly on either sight, sound or touch. You can observe someone and listen to how they talk and determine which sense they rely on the most. This can help you build rapport with the person. For example, when talking to a visual person, you should say something like “I see” to indicate you understand him. If he or she was an auditory person, you would say, “I hear you” instead.
If you study Neuro Linguistic Programming in any detail, you’ll learn how to use your senses more powerfully.
This is known as sensory acuity, which has to do with howaware we are of what our senses are telling us. We don’t have to actually improve the physical state of our senses to get more out of them. The real issue is paying attention to what our senses, however good or limited they may be, are telling us from moment to moment. You might, for example, spend a day listening more carefully and identifying all of the sounds you hear. You’ll notice that there are hundreds of sounds that your ears pick up that you seldom pay any attention to. Doing this over time makes you more alert and sensitive to your surroundings.
The above are only a handful of the ways you can benefit from Neuro Linguistic Programming. What’s interesting about NLP is that it can be customized to your individual needs. That’s why it’s used in so many different settings, whether to train salespeople or help someone get over an emotional problem. If you’re curious about Neuro Linguistic Programming, you should take some time to study it in depth.
Neuro Linguistic Programming helps to facilitate your experience – NLP is not about being made to do things, in fact it is the opposite, it is about empowerment.
