Most of us reading this will already have a good understanding of what NLP is. But, what if there was a different opinion to ours? What if there were another way of looking at NLP that could compliment our own understanding, or even spin our definition to be even better? I don’t know about you, but I’m always curious about how others describe NLP. I’m curious about how people use NLP. I suppose its this curiosity that Richard Bandler was talking about when he said that “NLP is an attitude and methodology that leaves behind a trail of techniques”.
To me that ‘attitude’ is one of curiosity.
I remember my first time – I was nervous and excited, eager and skeptical. And, it was wonderful.
Before my first time, I was wondering what it was going to be like. Sure, I’d talked to friends, I’d read books – but can you get the whole picture like that? Is someone else’s experience going to be the same as mine?
An interesting thing, once you’ve had the experience, you can’t go back to not having it – so in a way, the first time changes life. Forever.
Today is day number 1 of my blog. I am excited about the road ahead. I have many ideas swimming in my mind at the moment, and I will do my best to retrain from writing it all now.
To me, this online adventure is about sharing the passion, commitment, authenticity and drive that I, and so many others, have for NLP. I hope to connect many people – NLP trained and not, and unite us in a common language. The language of NLP – not in a pedantic kind of way where someone is pointing out a language omission, but rather, the language that we all have which tells us that anything is possible. The language that tells us that if we know better we can do better. The language that tells us if we are being tripped up or if we feel stuck – then it is up to us to do something about that.
