How To Know Who You Really Are
The author emphasizes that this book is aimed at people who have a good grounding in NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming, and uses the following quote from Richard Bandler and John Grinder:
'A number of people in the history of civilization have made the point - that there is an irreducible difference between the world and our experience of it.
We as human beings do not operate directly in the world. Each of creates a representation of the world in which we live - that is, we create a map or model which we use to generate our behavior.
Our representation of the world determines to a large degree what our experience of the world will be, how we will perceive the world, what choices we will see available to us as we live in the world.'
Richard Bandler and John Grinder
