The intention is for these stories to be inspirational examples of how you have used NLP in your life and work to make a positive difference to yourself, clients and those around you…told from the heart.  We want these stories to be emotional, showing how you and those involved were affected by what happened in the story.  We want you to enjoy writing it so we can share your story as widely as possible.

Ground Rules:

  1. It is NOT an advert, essay, or formal article.
  2. It can be inspirational, humorous, stimulating and awakening, etc.
  3. 1,200 words max.
  4. It must be your story in the first person.
  5. It must be true and verifiable.
  6. It must be something that has NOT previously been published.
  7. Please avoid politics or religious topics in your story.
  8. Provide your story in a Microsoft Word document (or MS Word equivalent)
  9. Provide any diagrams or tables as separate files

This is the legal bit, please read it carefully:
