NLP or Neuro Linguistic Programming was developed by Richard Bandler and John Grinder through modelling some of the most outstanding therapists and thinkers in our history. Some of these great people were Milton Erickson, Virginia Satir, Fritz Perls, and Alfred Korzybski, among others.

Neuro Linguistic Programming.

Neuro relates to our neurology or nervous system, which is the mind. Our neurology determines how we perceive the world. Through our neurology, the outside world, or "reality", is processed by way of the five senses, which are: visual (sight), auditory (hearing), kinaesthetic (touch), olfactory (smell), and gustatory (taste). When the outside world is processed by our five senses, it is then further filtered down by our neurology by way of meta-programs, values, beliefs, attitudes, etc, in order to create an inner representation of the outside world. This is how we make sense of the world so we can navigate through it.

Linguistic relates to language and other non-verbal communication systems through which our neural representations or Inner representations are coded by. These include pictures, sounds, feelings, tastes, smells, and the words we use, which are our self-talk. Our language is the code we use. It's how we communicate with ourselves and others.

Programming relates to the habituated patterns we run inside ourselves. Our programming determines the way we operate in the world. NLP gives us the ability to discover and utilize the programs that we run inside ourselves and allows us to understand better how others run their programs. NLP can be used to model other people's programming, those who are getting the results we want.

NLP is often called "the study excellence." This idea of NLP is how you use the language of the mind to achieve your specific and desired outcomes consistently.
