NLP - or Neuro-Linguistic Programming - is a modern psychological tool that has the power to change your thinking and change your life.
- Enjoy GREATER SELF-CONFIDENCE from within
- Remove LIMITING BELIEFS and self-doubt
- Reframe NEGATIVE EXPECTATIONS into POSITIVE ANTICIPATION

...and these methods are so simple that even children can do them. It's all about strategically changing established thought patterns to create dramatic changes in your behavior.
The Truth About NLP Techniques
There's something that most practitioners of NLP don't want you to know.
Not all NLP is based on true science.
Ouch. That's quite a blow coming from someone who supports NLP. But let me explain...
NLP was developed relatively recently - in the 1970s - by two men called Bandler and Grinder. Their original techniques were scientifically-based and proven to work well. But then the hype got in the way...
The practice of NLP became distorted, with many practitioners adding new limbs and trying to take NLP to dizzying new heights. The problem was, not all of these new techniques worked.
And so today, NLP has become a mix of genuine psychological techniques and some less-than-helpful offshoots. Few practitioners will tell you that. Indeed, few truly understand the difference.
That's why I wrote NLP Secrets. It's my official guide to the NLP techniques that REALLY WORK.
You may wonder why there are fewer techniques in this book than some other books. And I welcome this challenge, because the reason is simple:
If a technique has no scientific basis, or no noticeable effect better than that of a placebo or psychosomatics, then I am not interested.
And that's my NLP Secret.
Who Am I?
My name is Pete Casale. I wrote this guide to NLP for people just like me - who are interested in upgrading their minds and making some positive changes to their behaviors. But, also like me, you've probably found that most resources making such promises don't live up to the marketing hype.
I know that NLP isn't a magic wand. It's not a magic cure-all like most internet marketers will try to have you believe. But it IS a set of proven psychological techniques which can be used to improve specific areas of your life. In my book, I show that NLP has solid foundations in:
- Building confidence on page 41
- Seducing potential partners on page 33
- Creating rapport on page 46
- Curing phobias on page 52
- Losing Weight on page 56
- Quitting smoking on page 60
I also expose misunderstood body language and facial cues so you can read people in social situations - from making friends through subtle mirroring, to being able to detect when someone is lying.
Apply these step-by-step techniques as you find a need for them... and you could see some serious changes come about in your own behaviors and the results they bring about. It could mean the difference between having the confidence and the skills to approach your future spouse for the first time. Or extending your life 20 years by quitting smoking (even after years of failed attempts fueled by willpower and nicotine patches).
NLP can have a profound affect on your life, if you choose to use it.
And this is me showing you how - in my new digital ebook, NLP Secrets.
A Basic Example of NLP
Let me show you how NLP works with a very simple example.
First, don't think of a blue duck!
What just went through your head? Did you think of a blue duck? But I specifically told you not to!
This is a totally normal reaction, because the command "Think of a blue duck" lay within that short sentence. Before you had a chance to not think of a blue duck, your unconscious mind had already put a picture of a blue duck up and stuck a DON'T label on it saying "This is the thing to not think about."
How to Apply This Example of NLP
It may be a fairly useless talent to be able to trick someone into thinking about a blue duck. But the trick is to apply the same principle to more useful situations.
Let's say you need to remember to pick up some bread and milk on the way home.
You could try telling yourself "Don't forget to pick up bread and milk!" over and over again. But that sentence carries the command "Forget to pick up bread and milk" which, as we now know, is the active instruction. You're MUCH more likely to succeed by telling yourself to "Remember to pick up bread and milk!"
A tiny - but crucial - difference that determines the success of your bread and milk plight.
Now, how about this one:
Imagine you've got a 5-year-old son and he's trotting towards a busy road. You have about one second to react before he is standing in the traffic, vulnerable to being hit by a car.
Is it better to shout:
- "Don't walk on the road!" - or -
- "STOP! Come here right now!"
We've established that if we yell to him "Don't walk on the road!" the instruction "Walk on the road!" remains and so he may take a split second longer than usual to process the full command.
Instead, the instruction to STOP is clear, followed by "Come here right now!" which is a direct command, not framed in the negative. It could make the difference between life and death for your son if a speeding car is seconds away.
As NLP techniques go, this is a very simple introduction to the subtleties of language and how it is processed in the brain. In my complete guide, NLP Secrets, I share the most effective techniques of Neuro-Linguistic Programming and how you can use them in real life situations to change habitual outcomes.
Whether you're nervously preparing for a job interview or a first date, or feel like it's impossible to overcome your irrational fear of spiders, I have some smart NLP practices that will make a big difference to your life. Try it out yourself and see!
