Six Habits that leads to success

Success leaves clues

Anthony Robbins –Author of Unlimited Power

In our waking hours we perform three different types of activities - our thoughts, feelings and our actions or behaviours which impact the results that we get from life. Habits are the results of the cumulative effects of these normal life processes. Some habits are good and others are not so good. The outcome is that the good habits enable us to achieve our potential and the bad one are limiting; in that they hinder our progress in diverse ways.

In this section we’ll look at the role Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) has to play in optimising our potential through modelling and adopting the behaviour of high performers in different works of life.

The following are the snap short behaviours that will enable us to achieve success if we learn and apply them in our success journey. It was created from neuro linguistic programming (NLP) – which studies the human achievements and behaviours that goes with attainment.

1. Start with the end in mind. It was Stephen Covey that suggested that you begin with the end in mind. In creating the success that you deserve, you need to decide exactly the result or outcome that you desire. What would you see to know that you have attained the outcome? How will you manage the processes required to the realization of the outcome you want? What are the tasks, activities, resources (time, money, skill set, knowledge and human), and how they fit into the overall scheme.

2. Use your eyes and senses. We take in information from the world by making use of our senses – see, hear, taste and touch. This is the basis of the sense perception process. Perception is projection meaning that our experience is a direct representation of our consciousness. The effect of the patterning of information resulting from our sensory acuity when sharpened could help us see experience in new light.

3. If what you doing is not working – try something else, We always receive feedback as a result of our actions or behaviours. If what we are doing is not producing the result or outcome we want we need to review, evaluate, and determine the reason for the result we are getting. We then have to take action and change our behaviour or the habit that has led us to the outcome. Therefore, we need to be flexible and prepare to change the behaviour to whatever is necessary to reach a desired or successful outcome.

4. Build and maintain rapport with yourself and others. We need to improve in the way we communicate with ourselves and therefore with other people. Building rapport will stem from the realization of the how we relate and communicate with others and this knowledge will impact the way we communicate with others. Creating a relationship of trust and co-operation is paramount here.

5. Operate from a state of excellence. Operating in a position of excellence will result from putting in place the other requirement needed for success – sensory awareness, planning your outcome, building rapport, and being prepared to change your behaviour to get what you want. This is the basis of operating from a totally resourceful state. Develop the habit of chunking – breaking your objectives into small manageable steps and build to bigger goals gradually. This has a way of boosting your confidence as it will empower you to make progress to your desired outcome.

6. Take action. Having done all, nothing happen without action. Remember an idea is a notion, unless an action is taken.
