Does NLP Work ? - NLP Un-Explained - 2

User Rating: 5 / 5

Star ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar Active


If you are reading this, chances are that you have faced this question either yourself or from someone to you.

If you have not come across the term Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), then you might want to read my blog post "NLP Un-Explained 1" to know how and why NLP is relevant for you.

If you have come across this term and have faced this question, then read on.

Maybe you inquired about the field of Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and were offered some bizzare, too good to be true claims like - "we will teach your mind unconsciously and install the knowledge of NLP within you".


Or Maybe you have had some exposure to the field of NLP, have attended some NLP training and had an experience where you were unable to get the results as explained by your trainer.

If you have faced this question ever - here is the answer.

NLP Does Not Work !!

In fact it is the opposite. What works - that is NLP !

NLP is about finding out what works and doing that.


Wow !!

As the title of my post suggests, this is about un-explaining NLP so that it starts making sense and you can find it believable enough for it to be true.

The historical perspective to the origins of the field of NLP is that Dr Richard Bandler & John Grinder studied people who had achieved phenomenal success in their field of endeavour and from that extracted the "essential ingredients to success" in a form that can be taught to others.

Be it in the field of psychotherapy or business or sales or sports or any other field - NLP is about studying the "Recipe for Success".


The outcome of the study carried out by the team of Bandler & Grinder can be categorized into two groups

a) The Recipe for success for specific purposes that you can learn and apply it directly - for example language of persuasion, Phobia Cure etc.

John Grinder calls these as the Products of NLP.

b) The methodology used to study the ingredients & recipe for success - The Process of NLP.


Many fly-by-night trainers who make these tall, incredulous claims will only try to teach you the so called "Products of NLP".


At best, they might be able to have you experience some benefit of applying these products. At worst, they might leave you in a worse state than you were in before.

When you attend an NLP Certification course with any trainer worth her/his merit, you will learn & experience both these groups - products of NLP as well as process of NLP. And you will be taught these and made to experience it - consciously.


The learnings you gain thus, become generative - in other words, you will be able to apply those learnings in any area of your life, even those that were not specifically covered or discussed during your training. This is a more appropriate meaning of "teaching your unconscious mind".

Now, Just ask yourself, what will it be worth to learn how to study success and implement it in any area of life you choose ?
