Neuro Linguistic Programming, or NLP, is undoubtedly one of the most popular mind-set tools of the 21st century. It is an incredibly popular tool, that has helped countless people across the world. The best part of NLP is that it is easy to learn and implement. If you want to use NLP to change habits, focus on your goal, or be more successful in your personal or professional life, it won't be hard to find the time to learn the basics.

Neuro Linguistic Programming, doesn't always rely on spoken or written words. You don't need to understand the difference between conscious and unconscious to use NLP. Socially speaking human beings are individuals, who are interdependent. NLP is a tool, that can assist in making the most of the attention span of one's customers.

What Is Neuro Linguistic Programming?

People are always buying something, whether it be food, entertainment, or even other people's ideas. Neuro Linguistic Programming is a method of teaching and selling ideas. It is a way of teaching and interacting with people, that takes advantage of their natural neurology. In other words, it's a way of getting people to do what you want them to do, without having to resort to beating them over the head with a hammer.

NLP works on the human mind on an unconscious level. When you learn the basics of it, you will be able to improve your social life, or just become more successful in general. It seems simple enough and for the most part it is. The main thing you need to master is the art of 'subtlety'. If you are too obvious in your approaches, then your opportunities to use NLP will be lost. You have to be subtle in your wording and keep the context of the situation in mind.

The best way to learn the ins and outs of NLP is to practice, practice, practice. Once you master the basics of it, you will find that mastering your subject matter becomes a lot easier.

Some Of The Ways, That NLP Can Be Used

NLP can be used for good and evil, but to use it for evil I wouldn't recommend. In this section I'm going to be detailing various ways in which NLP can be used for.

  • Manipulation: The most obvious way in which you can use NLP is for the purpose of manipulation. As I said before, if you are skilled enough in NLP, you will be able to manipulate almost anyone into doing what you want them to. Whether it be for good or it depends upon the practitioner. One of the best ways in which you can manipulate someone is through their limbic system. The limbic system controls your behaviors and emotional responses. For instance, if you are really nice to them, then they will respond in kind. This is a basic "law" of the limbic system. However, not all niceness is equal. You can send mixed messages, that will confuse the person, causing them to do what you want anyway. Flatter them, insult them, scare them, anger them, etc. This works not only on the average person, but on professionals as well. It is through this that you can get someone to help you without them even realizing it. You just have to know how to manipulate them and get in their head. Of course, this can be used for good or evil purposes.

  • Law Of Reciprocity: Another way in which you can use NLP is to take advantage of the 'law of reciprocity'. This law states, that people will provide a good or service to someone, if they are provided a good or service first. You can utilize this in many ways. For instance, if someone is angry with you, you can try to make peace with that person. If someone dislikes you, you can try to gain their friendship. Basically, it's all about how you want to play the game of reciprocity. Just remember that once someone starts to reciprocate, they become dependent on the relationship. They will do anything for you out of fear, that you will stop providing. At this point they are yours for the taking, but now it's all about how you want to play that game.

  • Catch And Release: NLP can also be used for 'catch and release'. Catch and release in NLP is setting someone up, so that they will do something or think something in which you can exploit or take advantage of it. It's usually used for deception or trapping someone, but it can also be used for capture their imagination, capture their attention, capture their heart, capture their soul, capture their life, capture their future, capture their dreams, capture their goal, capture their mind, capture their success, capture their happiness, capture their... you get the point. 'Catch and release' is best utilized on people, that are 'low sensitivity'. This means, that they will act on your suggestions, even if they normally wouldn't do so. It also means, that they are easily influenced, but in a negative way. For instance, an extrovert might catch and release easily, but it won't be positive. A pessimist might catch and release easily, but it won't be positive. A pessimist, that is an extrovert is a terrifying combination, but that's the world we live in. NLP for 'catch and release' can also be used on people with low self-esteem. A low self-esteemed person will not think twice about doing something, that you ask them to do. They will do it, because they don't think they can refuse, or they are too embarrassed to say no. This can be a dangerous practice when it comes to relationships.

There are many other ways, that NLP can be used for, which I will leave for you to discover, but these should get you started.

How NLP Can Be Useful In Everyday Life

As you can see NLP is a versatile tool. In fact, it's one of the most useful tools you can have. In this section, I'm going to be going over a few of the everyday situations in which you can use NLP to help you. These are mostly for your personal use, but if you work with others, who also find themselves in these types of situations, they can greatly benefiting as well. NLP can be used in almost any situation on yourself mainly. It can be used on both the conscious and subconscious mind to help you with your goals.

Let's take motivation for instance. We all know we need motivation to do many things in life. This might be motivation to get up and go to school, to make decisions you don't want to make, or it might be motivation for a specific test. However we get it, we need it, and we all run out of it at times. That's when I go ahead and listen to motivational speakers.

This is a result of a 'gift' you have from the Universe. This gift can be anything you want it to be, but it is a product of inspiration, which comes from within yourself. NLP can be used for inspiration in all different forms. Let's take fear of heights for instance.

You fear falling from great heights, right? Does this fear disappear without any motivation to get over that fear? Of course not, so how can you get past this fear? With the use of NLP, you can practice your fears in a safe, controlled manner until you conquer them. NLP can also be used for this, to conquer a fear of yours. You would simply have to pick a situation in which you would feel comfortable using NLP to help you. Let's say breaking a height record? You could easily use NLP to conquer your fear of not only heights, but also of achieving your goal.

NLP can be used to help you achieve other things as well. It can be used to help you with confidence, it can be used to help you with school, it can be used to help you with social interaction and it can be used for everything else, that you can think of. This is just one way in which you can make yourself happier in life, there are many others.

I love knowing the name of the science that I apply every day. Ah ah. It has worked for me and I apply several of the points described here. Just like the law of attraction we have already talked about.

Ps: did you download the movies for your girl?

Oh to be totally honest with you. You just reminded me for that. If they are on Netflix that would not be good for us as we have just cancelled their service.
