What beliefs would you choose?

It’s an interesting thought experiment, isn’t it?

In NLP we have done just that. We call those choices the Presuppositions of NLP.

I think the most popular Presupposition of NLP would be: “There is no failure, only feedback.”

For a full list click here:

Now we are not saying that the Presuppositions of NLP are true. We act though, as if they are true. That action is what makes a lot of NLP work.

‘There is no failure, only feedback.”

What if this were true?

How would it change the way you approach life?

For example I left school with one O level in art. So apart from art, did I fail school? On the surface it certainly looks that way. I would have said at the time that it felt like I failed school.

Instead I asked myself the question, “What is the life lesson here?”

It could have been:

  1. My focus on what I can’t do is not serving me.
  2. It is easy to hide behind being dyslexic.
  3. I choose to have low self esteem (because I could not spell).

You get the idea

It was NLP that turned my life around.

This simple idea that there is no failure, only feedback was at the heart of my self-transformation. Oh, it didn’t happen overnight. First I had to become aware of NLP.

Today, in addition to the pleasure I take running open courses, I train and consult some of the biggest companies in the world.

I’m doing what I love. And I now credit the dyslexia, the low self-esteem, and a deep shyness as the foundation to my success. That is, they provided the key lessons in life I needed at that time.

Now I am a creative speller and honored to train NLP around the world.

‘There is no failure, only feedback.”

What would you do if you couldn’t fail?

Another of the beliefs I live by is: “Life gets better and better every year.”

What do you want to believe?

How would your life be different?
