NLP and Golf
Learn how to use NLP to improve your golf skills
We are all born with the same basic neurology. Our ability to do anything in life, whether it’s driving a car, reading this text or swinging a golf club, depends on how we control our nervous system.
So much of NLP is devoted to learning how to think more effectively and communicate more effectively with yourself and others.
What is NLP?
Increasingly, you will hear the subject of Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP) mentioned as you go about your daily life- in corporations, colleges and coffee shops. NLP has grown in popularity because it offers “aha!” moments. “Neuro” relates to what’s happening in our minds, “Linguistic” refers to language and how we use it, while “Programming” tackles the persistent patterns of behaviour that we learn and then repeat.
