So what is NLP(Neuro-Linguistic Programming)?

Basically a lot of successful people did have practiced this method.They practicing it as much as they can to their mind so that they can always be motivated although there is in tough situation.This method changing the systems of our belief that we used to be while we grow up,whether it is from our parents or our environment that creates the way of our mind be.

Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) is a set of techniques, axioms and beliefs that adherents use primarily as an approach to personal development. NLP was influenced by the ideas of the New Age era as well as beliefs in human potential. The initial ideas of NLP were developed around 1973 by Richard Bandler, a student, and John Grinder, a professor of linguistics, in association with the social scientist Gregory Bateson. The term "Neuro-linguistic programming" denotes a set of models and principles meant to explore how mind and neurology (neuro), language patterns (linguistic), and the organization of human perception and cognition into systemic patterns (programming) interact to create subjective reality and human behaviors.

Based upon language patterns and body language cues derived from the observation of several world-renowned therapists[1], NLP focused on areas such as how subjective reality drives beliefs, perceptions and behaviors, and therefore how behavior change, transforming beliefs, and treatment of traumas is often possible through appropriate techniques based upon how known experts worked with this relationship.[1][2][3] The techniques distilled from these observations were metaphorically described by the original developers as "therapeutic magic," with NLP itself described as 'the study of the structure of subjective experience".[4][5] They are predicated upon the principle that all behaviors (whether excellent or dysfunctional) are not random, but have a practically determinable structure [3][6] NLP has been applied to a number of fields such as sales, psychotherapy, communication, education, coaching, sport, business management, interpersonal relationships, as well as less mainstream areas such as seduction and spirituality.

Due in part to its open-ended philosophy, NLP is controversial. It is at times criticized in the scientific community as unproven or pseudoscientific[75], and amongst those who watch for fraud, for exaggerated claims and unethical approaches by a number of practitioners.[citation needed] There is also some dispute among its developers and proponents regarding what NLP is and is not.[citation needed] On the other hand, a wide range of credible bodies worldwide[7] have given strongly worded support for its use, if taught by a skilled and competent trainer and used appropriately.
