4 steps to success


What are the 4 steps to success?

There are multiple ways to reach success. Someting a skilled NLP Practitioner or a good coach could help a client achieve.

In coaching clients and training coaches around the world, I have seen proof that it is possible for people to become the best version of themselves and  achieving their goals.

What are the 4 steps to success?

1. Know your result
You have to specifically know what you want. Which is something different than knowing what you DO NOT want. It has to be something that is stated in the positive. Like “I want to be healty and fit.” Instead of “I don’t want to be fat” or “I don’t want to feel like collapsing, every time I run for the train.”

2. Take action.
Just creating vision boards, putting in your future, and focusing on it, is effective. Yet not enough. You have to go and do or get what you want.

3. It has to become real in your minds eye.
What would achieving success look, sound and feel like? If you imagined already having reached the goal, what would you see, hear and feel? What if you closed your eyes, and then in your mind wake up the moment you reach the goal? Who is there? Where are  you? What are you seeing, hearing and feeling? What specifically have you done right before that?

4. Be flexible in your behavior.
The person with the most flexibility in their behavior, ends up ruling the system. The more flexible you are, the more you can achieve. The more flexible you are to adept your course, making changes, learning new skills, taking steps forwards, and enganging with different types of people. The more likely you will be successful.

What about larger goals towards success?

Some coaches have the tendency to want to set goals that are years away. Indeed some goals take that long to achieve. In this case it would be wise to split the larger goal in sub-goals or milestones. Divided by tasks. Six weeks, or even 3 months is easier to grasp than 3 years. Every milestone should be celebrated!


If you like helping others to achieve success, then coaching with NLP as a methodology is definitely something to consider. You can go beyond merely learning the 4 steps to success. Success and happiness has an underlying structure or patter, which is what an NLP course is all about.
