Have you ever wondered how it is that two people faced with the same set of circumstances can produce opposite results? How some people seem to be able to achieve more whilst still remaining cool, calm and collected? There are people who just seem to have life sorted out the way they want it.

We may refer to the more successful people as lucky but in fact Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) shows it's nothing to do with luck and everything to do with how we think.

NLP is a powerful set of tools for making things happen for you at work and in life. Now Brilliant NLP makes mastering the techniques of NLP easy – how it works, and more importantly how to use it to become more effective, efficient, powerful and successful.

The potential is already there, inside you. This book shows you how to unleash it on the world!
