how-to-take-charge-of-your-lifeI am a big fan of Neuro Linguistic Programming, because it teaches people how to take control of their minds and their thoughts which allows them to function in a more productive way.  NLP was founded in the 1970’s by Richard Bandler and John Grinder.

Bandler and Grinder studied the best therapists of the time to discover how they were able to bring about lasting change in their clients lives, where many other therapists had failed.  They discovered certain patterns in how the successful therapists worked and found that other people could achieve similar results, by adopting these patterns.  They discovered that these methods could not only be applied to help people solve their problems, but also to help people to achieve their life’s goals and dreams.

This book How to Take Charge of Your Life, A Users Guide to NLP, is co authored by Richard Bandler and Two of his Top NLP Trainers Allessio Roberti and Owen Fitzpatrick.  The book is written from the perspective of young man called Joe, who attends one of Richard Bandler’s 3 day workshops in an attempt to gain some knowledge on how to effect change in his life.

The book follows Joe’s journey through the seminar, from his initial disbelief that such simple exercises could effect massive change in people fears and phobias in just a matter of minutes.  To Joe practicing the exercises and witnessing a similar change within himself first hand.

I personally enjoy the format of this book; it really gave me a sense of what it would be like to be a participant in one of Richard Bandler’s workshops.  It uses the fact that we all learn much more easily through stories and in that way I found it not only easy to read but also easy to relate to.   It also gave me some really powerful tools that I could put into practice in my own life.

The book teaches that the quality of our mental images about people, situations and things have a real affect on our lives.  One of the first and very simple exercises that is introduced in the book is when Richard Bandler asks his audience to imagine someone they find annoying.  He then asks the audience to notice how this picture of the annoying person is represented in their minds, it’s usually big and in colour.  Richard tells everyone to imagine the picture in black and white, and then move the picture off into the distance until it’s just a speck.  Once this is done he asks his audience how they feel once more.  When a person takes the time to do the exercise they will find that they have altered their picture in their mind and therefore their feelings about the person are greatly reduced.   I personally have used this exercise and I have to say I didn’t believe that it would make the difference that it did.  I now use it for all circumstances, situations or people I find annoying and it works a treat.

5-starsI give How to Take Charge of Your Life; A Users Guide to NLP,  a 5 Star Rating,  I really enjoyed reading it and I find it very useful, it definitely gave me a taste of wanting to learn more about NLP.  If you want to make lasting changes in your life, then this book is for you.  It gives you actionable tools to start making effective changes in your life beginning today.

To Your Success,

Roma Catherine
