Neuro-linguistic programming? It sounds difficult and slightly scary. Can you explain what this is and what it means?

i applied some of this thinking yesterday after reading more of this thread and skyfloating's one on the law of attraction.
i did what was suggested of me. i emptied my thoughts of everything but what i wanted, and i lived that moment in my head as if it was currently happening. then, i just let it go.
my thoughts were on getting a specific job that i had just applied for on monday. i went through it in my head, visualizing myself already working there and what i'd be doing. i visualized receiving the anticipated phone call from the person who'd give me the job. i ran through the phone conversation in my head, acting as both myself and the other person. i did this in the afternoon yesterday [tuesday].
i woke up this morning [wednesday] and headed straight for the cell. i had one missed call and one voicemail. it was them saying that i had the job.
i've been trying to get a new job for 4 months, and i've had numerous interviews that always ended up with me waiting by a dreaded phone of silence. i've qualified for all the jobs i had applied for, just something had never worked out. that is until today.
my rational side is telling me that i was going to get the job regardless of any attempted reality manipulation, that it was just coincidence. the intrigued and more open side of me is wanting to try more with this technique to calm any lingering doubts.
what do you think of this situation? if valid, it reaped results in about 17 hours. this was also my first willed attempt at this. either i am naturally awesome with controlling my mind and my reality, or i was going to get the job anyway because i qualified for it and had a great interview.

I really wanted to stay out of trouble. At that point I didnt want anything else in the whole world. I focused on it. I visualized that somehow my PE teacher forgot to inform the principal of what happened. I visualized that mabye my teacher had a change of heart. I visualized it while at school for the rest of the week ( 3 days). I never did get in trouble for it. hmmmm...
I never asked my teacher about it either because he might have just forgot and quite frankly I didnt want to remind him

Im wanting to know basically what you wanted to have happen or occur. Were you successful at making it happen or occur? How long did it take for it to happen?If at all, how has it changed/effected your life?
This doesnt work with the lotto. It doesnt work with many things that are material based.

Do you still doubt?
i think i'm not letting go of my logical side, because if i did that, i would then have to be in control of my reality at all times and be conscious of that fact. it's with that insight that could bring about my doom [ie emotional instability, natural self-serving tendencies, etc etc].
