Welcome, Roger Ellerton!

Highlighted Author is excited to bring you a motivational and inspiring self-help author on the topic of neuro-linguistic programming (NLP). Because I had never heard of NLP myself, I looked it up on Wikipedia and was completely fascinated by their definition.

Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) is an approach to communication, personal development, and psychotherapy created by Richard Bandler and John Grinder in California, United States in the 1970s. Its creators claim a connection between the neurological processes (“neuro”), language (“linguistic”) and behavioral patterns learned through experience (“programming”) and that these can be changed to achieve specific goals in life. …Bandler and Grinder also claim that NLP can treat problems such as phobias, depression, habit disorder, psychosomatic illnesses, myopia, allergy, common cold and learning disorders, often in a single session. NLP has been adopted by some hypnotherapists and in seminars marketed to business and government.

About the Author

RogerEllerton4I am passionate about helping others get what they desire in life. As a long-time successful businessman, university professor, trainer/coach, public speaker, author and parent, I have first-hand experience with the personal/professional balancing act required in these busy times. I am a former tenured faculty member at the University of New Brunswick, an executive in the Canadian federal government, a certified management consultant (CMC) and have been listed in the International Who’s Who in Education.

My books are in the area of personal growth and inter- and intrapersonal communication. Growing up and as a young adult, I never felt comfortable in my own skin. It was not until I was in my forties that I started exploring personal development methodologies. One in particular (neurolinguistic programming or NLP) had the most positive impact on me and how I interacted with others. I pursued this discipline and eventually became a certified trainer. I had read a number of books on NLP and, although I recommended several to clients/students, I felt the available books did not clearly present the information in a way that was readily accessible to the beginner. So I wrote my own book, which turned out to be very successful and now I have a total of eight books that are published as paperbacks or ebooks.

I have been studying personal development methodologies for almost 30 years. I continue to transform my own life while assisting others from all walks of life and all ages to learn, to address challenges at work and at home and to get more of what they desire in life. I believe that each of us can achieve the success we desire by developing our authentic selves, mastering internal and external congruence and taking charge of our lives.

I am the father of four, an avid gardener and nature lover and enjoy lending a hand to others. I received my BSc. and MSc. from Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada, and my PhD from Virginia Tech, Blacksburg, Virginia, USA. I am the founder and managing partner of Renewal Technologies Inc.

Note from the Author

Writing and training is a continuous search for new ideas or better ways to convey useful information. As a result of continually evaluating of my work, I realized that some sections could be revised to make them easier to understand, while other sections could be expanded to include additional information – increasing the breadth of your knowledge and abilities.

“All our dreams can come true – if we have the courage to pursue them”
-Walt Disney

How many of us live our lives according to others expectations? How many of us have put our lives on hold to accommodate a spouse (current or past), our parents, our children, someone who is needier than us, for our job … . How many of us wander through life, with one day the same as the next with little passion for living or purpose in life? How many of us know we could do better, if only we knew how to communicate – with ourselves and with others? Live Your Dreams Let Reality Catch Up helps you discover who you are, what really motivates you and provides you with the knowledge and tools for you to choose what you want in life.

It all begins with communication – the conversation you have with yourself and then the conversation you have with someone else. Do you tell yourself how wonderful you are or do you focus on how things can go wrong, that you do not deserve to succeed? After you have had this conversation with yourself, how does this affect the conversation you have with someone else? And once more do you prove yourself right? And settle for less than you deserve?

NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming), the subject of this book, has helped thousands to discover their own potential, is it your turn? Are you ready?

This book does not pretend to know what is best for you, nor will it tell you how you should live your life. It provides a Toolkit for Transformation and is the Life Manual you didn’t get when you were born! It’s all about recognizing you have choice, you are always choosing. You have the choice of ‘continuing to do what you have always done and get the same results, or you can choose to do something different.
