NLP – A Revolutionary Growth Tool for Women’s Empowerment

“Imagine that you buy a bag of tomatoes and you are not allowed to keep it in fridge and you have to carry it everywhere you go. What will happen? Tomatoes will rot, right? Well the same happens with our emotional baggage. But with NLP in life, I remember and remind others also to remove the rotten tomatoes from life.” These were the words of K P Mamatha Rao, who shared the nuggets of her self-growth journey in the Women’s Day Special Session in W3 Success Academy.


In my journey of growth with NLP, I realised few things. Firstly the progress or growth that NLP provides is holistic, as it is a perfect combination of mind and body healing. Secondly, NLP has helped me more personally and then as I became a better person each day, I excelled automatically in my profession. Finally, the most amazing part about being a NLP coach is getting to witness the transformation of my mentees. While we had a special session for the female mentees as a token of salute to the womanhood, we came across constellation of powerful stories and equally powerfully emerging women from all walks of life. This women’s day, after such power-packed session I could not resist to write about NLP as a revolutionary tool for women. So here we are today, on International Women’s Day, dedicating a post for women and how NLP became their genie who fulfilled not just one but many wishes, dreams and goals.


“Everything begins from subconscious and subconscious is built up by everything.” A thought, a belief, a pattern and even the habit; everything stems from subconscious. So does success and failure. If our subconscious mind is the pencil, then the sharpener is NLP. The thoughts and patterns, which handcuff us unknowingly, are no less than the dust we need to remove in order to shine.


What is NLP?

NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) is a psychological approach that focuses on the connection between neurological processes (neuro), language (linguistic), and behavioural patterns (programming). The core belief of NLP is that by understanding and changing the way we think, communicate, and behave, we can improve our lives and achieve our goals.

NLP was developed in the 1970s by Richard Bandler and John Grinder, who studied successful therapists and communicators and identified patterns in their language, behaviour, and mindset. They then created a set of techniques and tools that could be used to replicate those patterns and help others achieve similar success. Thus NLP is rightly also known as the study of the difference that makes the difference.



How can NLP benefit women?

Most women face a unique set of challenges in their personal and professional lives. They may struggle with issues such as self-doubt, imposter syndrome, and work-life balance. NLP can be a powerful tool to help women overcome these challenges and achieve their goals.

Here are some ways that NLP can benefit women:


  1. Improved Communication Skills

At its very basic level, NLP teaches effective communication skills, including active listening, rapport building, and persuasive language. Regardless of any gender, sharpening these skills can make you more effective in your personal and professional relationships, which can help you achieve your goals.


  1. Better Inner Chatter (evolved communication with self)

While NLP uses language patterns to change the state and perceptions of mind which lead towards better and impactful communication, there is something more to it than just this. And that is your inner self-talk, which is often the root cause of many issues. This is where NLP hits the nail. Women often face the negative inner chatter due to several reasons such as self-doubt, doing justice to family as well as self-growth, imposter syndrome, etc. By using right words that can change an “away from” orientation to a “towards” orientation, NLP has reframed many inner chatters in women while putting a positive shade in their lives. Once the inner self-talk is improvised, the road to growth becomes smoother.


  1. Breaking the Shackles

“Whether you can or whether you can’t, both are true.” While there are circumstantial hiccups everywhere, the human mind, which is more conditioned to remain threatened rather than happy, has a tendency to think and notice negative first. Thanks to the societal stereotyping, many women often face limiting beliefs that hold them back from achieving their full potential. These beliefs may include thoughts such as “I’m not good enough” or “I don’t deserve success.” NLP can help in identifying and overcoming these limiting beliefs, allowing them to achieve their goals with confidence.


  1. Improved self-esteem and Quality of Life

Be it reframing, language patterns or anchoring, NLP techniques are just the much needed spell for women to not just change, but to revive their self-esteem. Once the negative patterns, inner chatter and self-esteem are taken care of, the quality of life and overall relationships also thrive. By changing negative self-talk and focusing on empowering beliefs, women can build a stronger sense of self-worth and overcome feelings of self-doubt.


  1. Better work-life balance

NLP can help women manage their time and priorities, allowing them to achieve a better work-life balance. By setting clear goals and using time management techniques, women can focus on what is important and make the most of their time.


  1. A Better Society

The core fabric of a good society begins from womanhood. If women are empowered, the nation is empowered. Although there have been enough initiatives out there to take stand for women, NLP works as a personalised inner pocket tool in mind, which women can use as a shield to stay protected in day to day life and bloom to their fullest, while building a better society. When a woman is healthy and happy, the family and social scene gets a higher happiness curve.


In conclusion, NLP is a powerful tool that can help women overcome challenges, improve their communication skills, and achieve their goals. By identifying limiting beliefs, using empowering language, practicing visualization, and cultivating gratitude, women can use NLP to empower themselves and create the life they desire. As we celebrate International Women’s Day, let us recognize the strength and resilience of women, and support them in their journey towards personal and professional success. Wish you the NEXT LEVEL PROGRESS through NLP.
