John Grinder on the illusion of ‘control’ in NLP and influencing

“Surely, if there is one thing all of us who have extended experiences inducing change with human beings (ourselves included, of course) through the application of NLP patterning can agree on, it is the futility of thinking in terms of controlling anything in the realm of human activity. Control is a fiction – a seductive illusion – choice is the point. These are fundamental distinctions in the life vocabulary of any well-trained NLP practitioner.”
