What’s Your Call
Neuro Linguistic Programming or NLP?
You may think the main reason people use the short term NLP instead of Neuro Linguistic Programming is because it’s easier to say, and you may be right, but it could also be because it’s simply easier to spell.
If I were to use Google to look at search terms that people use to find neuro linguistic programming training , I would see dozens of ways in which people spelled neuro linguistic programming, but only one way for people to spell NLP.
The simplest difference is in the last word of the three, programming. Often you’ll see it with only one “m”, like this. Neuro Linguistic Programing.
Another common spelling is combining the first two words neuro linguistic into neurolinguistic. The odd time you will see a Welsh like form of it, neurolinguisticprogramming. (the welsh are known for having some very long word names).
The first word may actually be most troublesome for many folks, as it’s such a simple sounding odd word. Some different spelling examples of neuro that I’ve see are: nero linguistic programming, nuero linguistic programming, nuro linguistic programming, newro linguistic programming and, neural linguistic programming.
Of course the word you would most expect to be of great difficulty would be the middle word, Linguistic. But I think it’s spelled correctly most often because it is difficult, and therefore, people put more attention on it, and may even look it up. But I have seen neuro libguistic programming, neuro liguistic programming and neuro liquistic programming.
But, no matter how neuro linguistic programming is spelled, the lesson to learn here – the take away is, the Map is not the Territory. Neuro Linguistic Programming – however it is spelled, is only a word, or in this case 3 words, used to describe a process. It is NOT the process
So don’t get hung up on the words, or as we say in NLP, “be carefull not to eat the menu”.
Get more control over your life by learning neuro lingusitic programming and focus on what really matters.
