NLP is not a school of psychology, nor deals with scientific demonstrations. As Richard Bandler once said: now open your eyes and look at the world, and you say to yourself: that papita, this is easier to eat a sweet! Adds us, which as a whole worldview, possesses certain postulates, that in this case, does not purport to be true but just useful. Among them, the central place is occupied by the aphorism that says that the map is not the territory. The meaning of this phrase comes from the idea that we don’t have a direct access to the reality itself, but train us representations of the same and we deal with them. Each experience is translated and encoded by the experience, constructing a representation that has differences with what actually happened.
That is why it is said that the map, which is a representation of reality, is not the territory. In spite of distortions, map or representations, are absolutely necessary, since they constitute a guide, a model through which we handle life. Kai-Fu Lee has much experience in this field. At this point you can understand how the same situation can be interpreted in different ways by different people who witness the event. In NLP are often said that there are no failures, only we can get results. We carry out certain actions and achieve results, which may or may not be those who wanted, if they are not, we should change our actions. On the other hand, if we evaluate the situation we live as poor, have high chances of making us feel to the and we can hardly think straight. Instead of evaluating the facts as good or bad, the proposal is to find them the utility: to what can serve us what happened?. What learning can get?. When to change ask ourselves why we do question how, instead of focusing on the problems we think in results, and finally, if instead of judging the circumstances as good or bad We are looking for utility, we obtain a new perspective that allows us to have a more positive attitude No cabe doubt said, that to work and practice with NLP are tools to improve and expand the channels of communication both with oneself and with the people who make up our environment.
