What is neuro-linguistic programming?

NLP is short for Neuro-Linguistic Programming. The name sounds high tech, yet it is purely descriptive. Neuro refers to neurology, our nervous system – the mental pathways our five senses take which allow us to see, hear, feel, taste and smell.

Linguistic refers to our language ability; how we put together words and phrases to express ourselves, as well as how our “silent language” of movement and gestures reveals our states, thinking styles and more.

Programming, taken from computer science, refers to the idea that our thoughts, feelings and actions are like computer software programs.

When we change those programs, just as when we change or upgrade software, we immediately get positive changes in our performance. We get immediate improvements in how we think, feel, act and live.

Neuro-linguistic Programming, or NLP as it’s more commonly known, is a psychological approach to improve mental performance. Practitioners say that an increase in physical and spiritual performance follows after you begin NLP training.

Basically–and probably a little too superficially put–NLP examines your self-talk and then offers ways to re-program this inner talk that is more aligned with achievement.

The question is: can NLP be used to improve your trading and investing performance?

When we change those programs, just as when we change or upgrade software, we immediately get positive changes in our performance. We get immediate improvements in how we think, feel, act and live.

No matter what Forex trading strategy you use,  you will soon experience that the majority of success is all about trading psychology.

 And the most effective proven way to get results in trading or any other area is to re-program the unconscious sometimes also known the subconscious.  

And when it comes to making permanent changes in the unconscious that create automatic success there is nothing more effective than the time-tested methods of neuro-linguistic programming.
