One of our students recently completed the NLP training, which stands for Neuro-Linguistic Programming. I asked her to give me the top three reasons she thinks people should learn NLP. Here is her response, as a millennial.
Her name is Courtney:
When I began to learn NLP by taking the NLP Practitioner’s Course, I thought I knew what to expect.
It was a psychology/personal development program that can be utilized to help others with specific problems that they may have. But learning NLP ended up being so much more than that.
I didn’t realize would be plunged deep into the inner workings of the mind, exploring all aspects of how our brains compute different scenarios, and how we deal with them.
The benefits of learning NLP are numerous, so I have narrow this list down to the most important aspects that you will learn upon embarking on the journey which is the Practitioner and Master Practitioner’s courses.
1) If you learn NLP, you will see positive changes in every single one of your relationships.
Not only will you learn how to communicate more efficiently, you will learn to understand those around you and see things from their truest perspective. You will be able to dive into your conversations much deeper than ever before, learning new things about the person with which you are conversing with every hand gesture and eye movement.
2) You will be able to help others tackle issues that they’ve been dealing with for years, right at the source of the behavior or action.
You will be able to guide others to a brilliant conclusion and solution to the problem, using techniques that they have never considered (which is likely why the issues at hand have persisted for so long).
3) You will understand yourself better.
When jumping aboard the NLP training, you will learn things about yourself that you would have never realized otherwise.
Before I learned NLP, there were certain aspects of my own personality that I had never considered to be “fixable”. I didn’t even know that they were things that others were dealing with too, so I simply lived with them, allowing them to cause havoc and anxiety in my life.
In some cases, I have been able to completely eliminate these kinds of problems from my life, which has made all the difference in my anxiety level.
Needless to say, the new world that has been revealed to me is an exciting one. The pleasure that you will feel when you are able to help someone rid their lives of a problem is wonderful, and is the real reason to learn NLP.
