The first part of any NLP Practitioner Training starts with setting outcomes. As you are reading this blog now, when was the last time you took to set some outcomes?
What is it that you really want?
On our NLP training we encourage students to be specific and positive in deciding their outcomes. By specific, it includes being measurable and well defined – losing weight would be too vague – setting a clear measurable target is critical.
By positive, we mean say what you want and not what you don’t want. Many people know what they don’t want but don’t know what they do want – a little like being in a boat with no idea about destination – you may drift around and never find anything you like. So first, decide what you want…
Here is another great quote…
The man who makes a success of an important venture never wails for the crowd. He strikes out for himself. It takes nerve, it takes a great lot of grit; but the man that succeeds has both. Anyone can fail. The public admires the man who has enough confidence in himself to take a chance. These chances are the main things after all. The man who tries to succeed must expect to be criticized. Nothing important was ever done but the greater number consulted previously doubted the possibility. Success is the accomplishment of that which most people think can’t be done.
