The Liberation of Choice

When the master says the first step is to build choices, I thought hey, this guy’s onto something. It took me some time to digest his words. Building choices is different from making the right choices. He, of course, is none other than Richard Bandler, the co-creator of neuro-linguistic programming (NLP).
