NLP stands for Neuro-Linguistic Programming, in which I would call it a psychology of excellence and a technology of achievement. It was founded by both Richard Bandler and linguist, DrJohn Grinder, in the early 1970s. It is a powerful tool that encompasses the 3 most influential components involved in producing human experience: neurology (ie. Neuro) , language (ie. Linguistic) and programming. The neurological system regulates how our bodies function, our mind and how we think and behave which stems from our 5 senses. Language in this case means verbal and other non-verbal communication systems through which our perceptions are coded, ordered and given meaning. It also meant how we use such languages to order our thoughts and to communicate with others. Our programming determines how we organized our ideas and actions to achieve our results and the kinds of models of the world we create. Neuro-Linguistic Programming describes the fundamental dynamics between mind (neuro) and language (linguistic) and how their interplay effects our body and behavior (programming), and eventually results.
In simpler terms, NLP is how you can use the language of the mind, to create any desired emotions (eg. confidence, courage, powerful, etc.) that you want and subsequently produce the results that you want. NLP is not only about competence and excellence, it is also about wisdom and vision.
