What you need to know about NLP (neuro linguistic programming)?

1) Choose one goal

• Describe your goal as what you want, not what you don’t want.

For example, change “I don’t want to eat so much fast food” to “I want to eat more healthily.”

• Your goal must depend almost by yourself, not by others

“Know yourself” is better than “recognized by others”

“I want to be more successful” is not clear, but “I want to be a good dad/mom/friend” or “I want to have financial freedom” is more specific.
