“Personal success” has become a hot topic right now because people are working on their own success in a much more modern way than in the past. In order to get the right results from that hard work, it is essential that this hard work is done after establishing one’s goal correctly. It is also very useful to rearrange any event and opportunity that one encounters in life so that one can use it to achieve one’s success.
The NLP methodology can be seen as one of the most significant contributors to the success of individuals that can be used in practice in setting relevant goals and objectives to achieve success in their lives over the coming year. Neuro-linguistic programming is one of the techniques that can be used to build goals for incoming personal success with well-defined results.
By defining the goal you want to achieve, you will have a strong belief in your goal and an accurate understanding of whether you are reaching your goal. This is a multi-step process. I hope to explain this process with simple examples in this article.
1.State the goal in positive
Your goal here should be to focus on what you want to achieve and not on the problem. For example, “My body is overweight” – this statement points to the problem. But if you want to set a goal correctly, you must first define it in a positive way. For example, “I want to lose 30 pounds of my body weight.” “By the end of this year, I will have a healthy body” Etc. You can set a goal.
2.Specify your outcomes in sensory-based forms
Describe what you see, hear, and feel when you reach your goal. Use all your senses (eyes, ears, nose, tongue and body) for this. For example, When you have lost weight, define exactly how you look in the mirror, how people around you react to you, how relaxed your body feels.
3.Specify the goal in a way that you find compelling
To do this, you can divide your main goal into smaller parts. You can also measure how you reach each of those small parts. Your goal here is to break it down into smaller parts that you can complete. You need to figure out how to complete each of these small parts. After completing each small part, enjoy what you hear and feel. For example, “I lose 5 kg of body weight in a month.” “I drink six litres of water a day.”
This test will test how well your goal fits you. Is this a goal that suits you? What happens if you reach this goal? What happens if goals are not reached? Is this a goal you can reach? How does this affect your family and your other relationships? By answering the following questions, you can determine if this is the goal you want to achieve.
5.Self-initiated and maintained
Whether you can start and whether you can manage. Here you need to prove that this goal is a goal that you can start and manage (Some people’s goals are beyond their control and only cause the person stress.)
6.State the context of the goal
Clearly state when and where you will reach your goal. Who will be with you when you reach your goal? When will you accomplish this goal? Under what circumstances? Define. When the situation is not well defined, re-adjust your goal. For example The goal of “I’ll be careful with this year’s food” can be redone to “I don’t eat fatty foods in this year and be careful with oily foods”.
7.State the resources needed to achieve the goal
Properly define the resources you need to achieve your goal. What are the internal and external resources you need to achieve your goal? Who are the people you know who have achieved a similar goal? Have you achieved this goal before? Are there factors that prevent you from achieving this goal? Check it out.
How do you prove that you have achieved your goal? What can you use to prove it? It is important that you check. In addition, you can learn about NLP reframing techniques on how to recreate any event and opportunity you face in life to make it a success.
