Brains aren’t designed to get results; they go in directions. If you know how the brain works you can set your own directions. If you don’t, then someone else will.

Is a method of influencing brain behavior (the "neuro" part of the phrase) through the use of language (the "linguistic" part) and other types of communication to enable a person to change the way the brain responds to stimuli (that's the "programming") and manifest new and better behaviors. NLP often incorporates hypnosis and self-hypnosis to help achieve the change to your cognitive programming.+

Dr Richard Bandler invented the term "Neuro-Linguistic Programming" in the 1970s. He was recently asked to write the definition of NLP that appears in the Oxford English Dictionary.  It says:

Neuro-Linguistic Programming: "a model of interpersonal communication chiefly concerned with the relationship between successful patterns of behavior and the subjective experiences and the patterns of thought underlying them" and "a system of alternative therapy based on this which seeks to educate people in self-awareness and effective communication, and to change their patterns of mental and emotional behavior."+
