In this NLP article I am going to show you how to set a goal and commit to it. Setting a goal is pretty easy but it is the commitment where people get stuck – they fail to follow through for one reason or another. So let’s take a quick look at the seven secrets to success that I have covered in a previous article.
1. Present State to Desired Outcome Model.
Before you can set a goal you need to get oriented in space and time. Where are you now? Where did you come from? Once you have those two coordinates you can then focus on your destination. This is your desired outcome – your future self – the new you. Five years from now; twelve months from now; four weeks from now – what will your life look like, sound like and feel like?
2. Personality Type.
So once you have a rough idea of your future self you take a look at your personality type. I use Roger Hamilton’s Wealth Dynamic Profile – which is based on the Myers Briggs and fits in well with NLP Meta Programs. Your personality type is your genius – which means you need to choose an occupation which suits your personality type.
3. Passion / Interest.
Which brings us to passion and interest. If you follow your passion then you should find yourself in an environment in which there is the potential to flourish. Once you are in that environment then you need to fit yourself into a role which interests you and suits your personality type.
So then you come back to your future selfing exercise and you rework your desired outcomes. And then you start asking why? Why do you want that outcome? Why else do you want that outcome? Once you get that then what will you get to have and to experience. What will that mean to you? This clarifies your motivation. What you are looking for are those key driver values that get you out of bed in the morning and propel you though the day.
5. Flow stages.
Now flow is defined as an optimal state of consciousness in which you perform at your best. Kotler tells us there are four stages to flow. 1.Struggle. 2. Relax and let go. 3. Flow. 4. Learning and consolidation.
Everything starts with struggle. You set a stretch goal for yourself and you set an intention to take action. You push, you push and at some point you feel like giving up – so you take a break. Go for a walk, have a shower, tidy your office, play a musical instrument, ride your skate board, make a phone call – anything which distracts from the activity. What happens is that your brain waves shift from beta down to alpha – and then with a bit of luck you get bursts of theta and you get that ah ha and you find yourself in flow.
6. Intention – Attention – Task – Focus – Concentrate.
So to recap. You do your goal setting – that is you do a future selfing exercise. You learn everything you can about your personality type. And part of that is connecting with the right people. I can’t emphasise that enough – do what you are good at – and then team up with the right people to take care of everything else.
So you put yourself in an environment in which you flourish. You engage in activities which interest you. You clarify your values – which means you understand what it is that motivates you. And most importantly you learn how you get into flow – you have got to understand that process. And you have to recognise what knocks you out of flow – and what you need to do to get back into flow.
So once you are clear on the task that faces you - then you set an intention which drives your attention onto the task at hand such that you can focus in and concentrate.
7. Questions / Statements / Commands.
Now there is another very important element to all of this and that is how you think and talk. If you listen to yourself you will find that you ask questions, make statements and give commands. It is the quality of your thought processes that will determine the quality of your outcomes. So what questions do you need to ask? What statements do you need to make – and what commands do you need to give to yourself?
Okay so now that we have had a brief look at the seven steps to success – let’s get down to the nitty gritty and do some serious goal setting. Make sure you pause the video and answer the questions as we go along. You might need to watch this video a number of times until you understand the processes.
