NLP stands for Neuro-linguistic programming, which was developed in the 1970s by Richard Bandler and John Grinder and is basically a study of human performance, encompassing many levels and that by understanding this; we can apply techniques to better ourselves.
Neuro stands for the neurological system, which is the system that regulates our bodies.
Linguistics is our language and means of communication.
Programming is our learned behavior.
NLP deals with the theory that there is a connection between our mind and communication, and that it shaped our programming, or behavior.
Okay, so that is the technical definition of NLP, so here is why it is important; it is a very effective tool to help people learn to improve themselves.
The basis of NLP is that if you see somebody or something that is perfect, or that has a characteristic that you wish that you had, that you can copy those skills, or that characteristic and by doing so, can model yourself after that, effectively making you better.
By starting with the thinking and applying new patterns to communication and behavior, NLP promotes infinite possibilities for people looking to change themselves for the better by re-training your brain.
