What is NLP
Transcript of Video
Hello and welcome to NLPcourses.com. My name is John Cassidy Rice.
I have the pleasure to host this video for you while we usher your past the velvet curtains into the deeper inner workings of the NLP mind.
Today we’ll explore what is NLP. Because if you’re interested in NLP, you might have heard somebody said, “What is all of these videos and books that you’re reading in NLP?” And you said, “It’s Neuro Linguistics,” and when you get to the point where you said ‘Linguistic’, you see their eyes glaze over and you lost them. So, what do you think NLP is? Well, there are various different levels.
What is NLP
NLP is a form of communication. It’s understanding how you communicate to yourself inside here and with other people. It’s about making changes, it’s about transforming your life. It’s also about modelling human excellence. With the idea of one of us can do some, we can all do it. So, let’s have a quiet read about one of the founders of NLP. It said, “NLP is an attitude, it’s the sense of curiosity.”
When you see somebody of excellence, you say, ‘How do you do it?’ And they say, ‘I just do it.’ And you get, ‘Oh… OK.’ You don’t stop there, you carry on exploring. Because behind whatever skill somebody has, whatever quality, there is a methodology. This means, we can model human excellence with the idea of being, If one of us can do something, we all have the potential to do it in our own unique way- not of becoming carbon copies of other people; so if I model Michael Jordan- the basketball player: the only thing that I have in common with Michael Jordan the basketball player, is a similar haircut- nothing else. So, I’m not going to become him, but if I model the way he thinks about basketball and his physiology, suddenly, my basketball skills accelerate.
We do not need another Michael Jordan in this world, but we do need you. We need you to be the very best that you can be. Which leaves a trail of techniques. And it’s another thing that I like about NLP is, it’s not that somebody sat down and said, ‘Oh, that sounds plausible.’ I think I can get that past enough people before they realize it. The idea is that, if one of us can do something, we can all do it in our own unique way. So, that leads to a trail of techniques that will be a model from other human beings.
So, NLP is an attitude; it’s a methodology that leaves a trail of techniques.
Thank you.
