Using the amazingly effective tools of Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) Mindworks shows you how to unlock the resources, abilities and creativity that you already have in order to take control of your life and accomplish whatever you want.

NLP is a series of psychological change techniques developed in the early 1970s. It has been a huge influence on today's motivational writers. As its name suggests, NLP is based on the idea that the human mind is a sort of computer; our verbal and body languages are the programming that allows us to change our thoughts and to influence other people. Mindworks shows you how to change your mind, reprogram your thoughts, gain control of your fears and fulfil your desires and potential.
