Achieving Your Dreams: 7 Steps to Success with NLP
By Lin Tar Kuan | 3 January 2023 | NLP Articles
Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) is a pseudoscientific approach to effective communication, methods of application for personal development and psychotherapy. It helps us understand how we think, communicate, and behave. It is based on the idea that our thoughts, language and behaviour are interconnected, and that by understanding and modifying these elements, we can improve our communication and overall well-being.
Here are 7 steps to using NLP to become successful:
- Identify our goals
The first step in using NLP to become successful is to identify our goals. This includes both short-term and long-term goals. Short-term goals can be in 6 months, 1 year, 3 years to 5 years and long-term goals could be in 7 years and above. It’s important to make sure our goals are specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, and time-bound (SMART).
- Set clear expectations
Setting clear expectations for ourselves and for others through NLP gives us the clarity to understand where we are at and how we could reach the goals we set for ourselves at. It also helps us communicate our expectations effectively to others.
- Identify limiting beliefs
NLP can help us identify limiting beliefs that may be holding us back from achieving our goals. The common limiting beliefs include negative thoughts or self-talk that prevents us from taking action and making choices for us to step closer to our goals.
- Reframe limiting beliefs
Once we have identified our limiting beliefs, NLP could help us reframe them into positive thoughts. This can be done through eg the words we used, affirmations phrases & statements, understanding our emotions and visualisation of us achieving our goals.
- Learn to manage emotions
How we manage our emotions is how we face all situations in which we come into contact. NLP will show us how we could identify, acknowledge, accept, manage, overcome and express them in a healthy way.
- Use nonverbal cues
NLP equips us with skillsets where nonverbal cues such as body language, tone of voice, and facial expressions are identified for us to communicate with others effectively.
- Find a coach
NLP coaching is very helpful in achieving success. It's important to find a certified experienced NLP coach who can help us identify our goals, overcome limiting beliefs, identify our blind spots and give timely pointers to help us achieve our objectives, goals and success in life.
It's important to remember that the definition of success is different for everyone. NLP is a toolset that can help us achieve our own personal definition of success. It's important to also understand that NLP coaching is not a substitute for medical treatment, and individuals should always consult with their healthcare provider regarding any physical or mental health concerns.
