3 NLP “Rules” To Live By
Are you ready to learn 3 empowering “rules” that you can adopt today to live a more empowering life?
In Neuro-linguistic programming these “rules” I am referring to are called presuppositions and they are convenient assumptions to make about the world around you.
Why would you want to assume things about the world around you?
Well… because if they are empowering assumptions this will help you live a more empowered life where you are free to choose your destiny and lead the life you want.
By simply adopting these assumptions and having them in the back of your mind you will soon find that you begin to look at the world around you with more clarity than before.
So, let’s begin!
#1 There Is No Failure – Only Feedback
This is by far my favorite of the 14 NLP presuppositions.
Imagine how you would live your life if you knew that–no matter what–you wouldn’t fail.
This is a nice reminder to live for your true passion and, very simply, give it a shot!
Now of course there is one major caveat to this rule and that is: you must learn from everything you try. That is how you get the feedback so that you can adapt for your next attempt.
So, become curious about the things around you and then attempt, learn and attempt again!
#2 The Meaning Of Communication Is The Response You Get
Have you ever tried to explain something to someone and they just don’t seem to get it?
This NLP presupposition is a quick reminder that you are in charge of your results with communication.
Of course the easy thing to do is to just blame the other person for not “getting it”.
And, unfortunately, some people will go their entire lives blaming their poor results on others.
This presupposition goes way beyond a simple interaction with someone because it applies to our non-verbal
communication as well.
Remember- you are always communicating something, so learn how to do it as effectively as possible and be in
control of the results you want.
#3 Resistance Is Due To A Lack Of Rapport
This original NLP presupposition referred to the interaction between NLP practitioners and their clients.
However, it can be applied to a myriad of personal interactions.
In other words, any resistance you encounter when communicating with someone (your boss, your kids, your spouse, etc.) can be attributed to a lack of rapport.
The ability to build rapport with someone very quickly is an incredibly valuable skill for all areas of your life.
So, take control today and practice becoming the most effective communicator you can!
