Most people crave greatness in some area of their life. It is an element of the human condition that we are geared to desire to be successful. A scarcity of fulfillment in our lives makes us feel inadequate, gives us a feeling of under-achievement. It is like we are not making most effective use of the gifts with which we are born.
The real reason why so many folk fail to gain as much success as they’d like in their lives is that they aren’t sufficiently zeroed in on what they desire. They haven’t any clear vision of what they actually need. Don’t blame folks for this shortcoming. It can be tough to find one’s real goal in life, to get a sense of who you are.
As an NLP Practitioner and Business Coach I spend a substantial amount of time with my clients helping them to focus on who they are. Finding out who you are is the secret to success. After you have a sense of who you are it lets you do things that are valuable to you and then you get that feeling of success.
So , how does one learn who you actually are? You already know your name and what you do, but they only slightly define who you are. The real need is to learn the unique way that you do everything that you do. It is your values, beliefs, capacities and behavior that define who you are. So , what do you believe in, what do you value in life and what do you do well? Even the things that you do badly define you if you always do them in the exact same way.
You can say that the secret to success is your ability to know yourself and to clearly understand what you bring to the party. Your capabilities can be that you’re a good conversationalist, that you smile readily, that you ask good questions, that you make people feel good about themselves, that you are conscientious to the needs of others. You see it does not have to be anything huge that makes you successful.
My chum James, who became CEO of a giant concern when still in his thirties told me once that he believed the cause of his success was that so many people liked him. “Being liked implies that folks trust me,” he said. If you can be trusted to deliver what you say you’ll deliver you will be successful.
Imagine a precision instrument that records the actions, words and feelings of the best performers. Then download that data to a powerful decoder that analyses and codes the behaviour. Transfer the code to your personal control panel so that you can reproduce excellence and self confidence at will. This is how NLP Techniques work. NLP Practitioner David Ferrers will show you how to build your own control panel during Business Coaching, or at one of his his Sales Success Sales Training workshops.
