What is NLP – Neil Shah

September 14, 2011

NLP, NLP is

1: What is NLP ?

NLP is such a wide ranging discipline that it’s difficult to encompass all it’s branches and applications in a short definition.  We can call it a set of techniques and guiding principles that allow us to identify, model and replicate outstanding performance in any given are – guaranteeing us outstanding results.  Using NLP we can eliminate or modify our existing behaviours, if we are not satisfied with them; or internalise new, more beneficial ones.

2: Why Did you get into NLP?

Over the years I have achieved tremendous success and I have also failed miserably. I had always put this down to chance, luck, fate and destiny. I was fascinated by how incredible people get incredible results and how amazing organisations achieve amazing results. Before learning about NLP I never realised that it could be easy to achieve the same results in my own life simply by copying or ‘modelling’ the strategies of others who have already attained success. In fact, NLP helps you do exactly that.

3: What benefits did you get from studying NLP?

Today I am happy, healthy, calm and relaxed. I successfully run four companies focused on health, wellbeing and success achievement. I am quoted as one of the UK’s leading experts in stress reduction and relaxation.

But it wasn’t always this way.  Only ten years ago my previous company failed. I was stressed out, exhausted and depressed. I had lost millions and was ill and completely burnt out. I had lost my appetite and my sex drive. I was frustrated, lacking focus and was struggling to keep my life together. I didn’t know how to deal with it, I felt helpless. I lost my money, my car and even a lot of people whom I considered to be my close friends. I was in the lowest place I had ever been in my life.

I tried therapy – I visited my doctor, I visited a life coach, a counsellor and even a psychic healer. I read self-help books and at one point even tried anti-depressants – nothing worked!

What changed my life

Then I discovered Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), a set of concepts and techniques intended to understand and change human behaviour-patterns. After attending an introductory session and reading a book on NLP I made the decision that I needed to get back on top of my life and on top of the world – so I travelled to the Himalayas with the intention of climbing Mt Everest.

It was life changing experience – as William Blake said ‘Great things are done when men and mountains meet; This is not done by jostling in the street’.

I learnt much about myself and what I am capable of and I had to radically shift my mindset to achieve this tremendous feat.

This was my first experience with reprogramming my mind to achieve success, and I am now committed to sharing what I discovered during this experience.
