What is NLP?
NLP stands for Neuro-Linguistic Programming. 'Neuro' refers to your neurology, 'Linguistic' refers to language, 'programming', refers to the 'rewiring' of neural language functions. NLP began it’s life early in the 1970's when an Associate Professor from the University of California, Santa Cruz, John Grinder, teamed up with undergraduate, Richard Bandler. Both were fascinated with human excellence, which led them to model the behavioral patterns of geniuses. Over the years, the NLP school of thought has taken many turns of development and has reached an incredible richness of techniques. The goal of using NLP is to become effective by perceiving the greatest number of available choices and perspectives on any given issue, and to choose the best ones, while considering the circumstances in which we live. NLP provides tools and skills for the development of positive mental and emotional states, it establishes a system of empowering and effective communication, and promotes the exploration of identity, vision and achievement.
Part consultant, part motivational speaker, part therapist and part rent-a-friend, coaches work with managers, entrepreneurs, and just plain folks, helping them define and achieve their goals — career, personal, or most often, both.
Coaches have the ability to view things from afar — in what some call ‘helicopter vision’ — and to shed new light on difficult situations. Often they can act as a sounding board through tough decisions, help sharpen skills, and motivate.

Have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language... Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.
