Have you ever wondered why it is said that the “pen is mightier than the sword”? Perhaps the expression is referring to how our thoughts have the real power to introduce change. Actions can only be as mighty as the thoughts powering them. The limitless power of our minds is what makes how we think vitally important to our personal and professional success and NLP the greatest secret weapon of a successful mindset.
NLP stands for Neuro-Linguistic Programming, and Dr Heidi Heron, an expert in the NLP field, defines NLP as how the language of the mind creates the mental programs you run in life. Mental programs are the psychology that underpins everything we are, think, feel and do, which over time have become patterns. NLP focuses on what makes up our experience by identifying and dissecting its unconscious mental composition.
It is important to note that not all of your patterns are inherently negative or need altering. Your mindset is an intricate combination of both healthy and not-so-healthy patterns, depending on their efficacy in helping you.
NLP coaching works by helping you identify the conscious or unconscious beliefs, resources, perspectives, attitudes, emotions and values that together form the basis of your experience. This awareness brings the wonderful gift of choice, more specifically the choice to replace what is not working with something that will. In this way, NLP is about mental conditioning, or how to use the power of your mind to bring out the best in you and in your results.

How Can NLP Help Your Mindset, Life and Business?
Whether you are aware or not, you are constantly evolving due to the experiences you go through and the choices you make. It has been proven time and again that your mindset is fundamental to your personal and professional success. If you lack confidence in yourself, it can manifest in other aspects of your life, such as your finances, relationships, and business. NLP coaching will work to understand where this lack of confidence stems from – for example, an internal conflict or limiting belief – and provide you with the mental tools to actively build your confidence and self-esteem to a level that is beneficial for you.
“If you have no confidence in self, you are twice defeated in the race of life” – Marcus Garvey
One of the reasons that NLP is so effective is because it is based on modelling excellence. Your NLP coach can take an aspect of your life that you are confident about and map that confidence onto the area in your life that lacks it. Success leaves clues.
Growing Positively and Sustainably
Good Therapy states that “NLP assumes all human action is positive. Therefore, if a plan fails or the unexpected happens, the experience is neither good nor bad—it simply presents more useful information.” This concept is especially significant when it comes to your personal and professional growth. For example, your Evolucentric NLP-trained coach will help you reframe failure in such a way that is not wholly negative, nor that it means the end of your dream – but that it can simply mean that perhaps you might need more information to succeed the next time.
Learning how to rewire your mind, challenge and change the deep-rooted beliefs is imperative for creating a pathway to a lasting successful and meaningful life. An NLP-trained Coach can help you gain invaluable insight into the thinking, behavioural or emotional patterns that you run in life while learning how to reprogram them to achieve your goals.
