What Is Neuro Linguistic Programming?
Neuro linguistic programming is aprocess related to hypnosis and psychotherapy, where you are taughthow to change you current streams of thoughts by revisiting certainsituations. Basically, your behavior is modified in order to keep yousafe from negative emotions and thoughts, all of which can make youfeel depressed and miserable.
For example, there are people who areperfectionists. They, regardless of how good their work is, willalways manage to find a flaw. So, if they are asked to do a projectwhile working, they will do it flawlessly and meticulously. Uponhanding it over, they will start claiming how the project is donebadly and could have been better, even though their superiors areoverwhelmingly satisfied.
Thus, neuro linguistic programming isused to swap these negative thoughts with more positive ones, makingpeople feel good about something they have done, rather than beingpessimistic, depressed or frustrated.
How Is It Done?
Neuro linguistic programming is aform of psychotherapy where you will be asked about things which make youfrustrated and negative. You may need to share your experiences withyou therapist, who will notice all the wrong and counter-productivethoughts you may have in certain situations. Then, through hypnosis,the therapist will make you exchange these negative thoughts withsomething more positive. For example, for the previously mentionedsituation, this person will be taught to think how he/she has donethe project in an excellent manner and should be happy since the bossseems to be very satisfied as well. This person will be taught toappreciate him/herself more and will be motivated to think this wayin occasions to come.
Basically, through neuro linguisticprogramming, one's patterns of thought are changed. A person whoundergoes the therapy, gets re-programmed and is lead through are-learning process after which he/she will react positively to therepetition of some previous events. Thus, rather than feeling sad anddepressed, thinking how his/her imperfect performance may jeopardizehis/her job, regardless of the fact that he/she did an excellent job,the patient will act differently in the future and learn to acceptcompliments and praise him/herself for all the hard and good workdone.
This makes this therapy highlyeffective and more than recommended to all those who seem to beincapable of dealing with certain aspects of their personalities,which usually get exposed through work or any other kind ofcreativity.
