How to Lift Your Small Business Higher for Optimal Success. (NLP article 2)
Success does not happen by luck.
Becoming successful in business or anything else you decide to do, does not depend on luck. It begins with hard work and determination. However there are several inner key factors that can set you apart when it comes to creating, running, and maintaining a successful business, no matter what field you may be in.
The inner key factor is the analysis of what is going on in your mind, and how you communicate with yourself so that you can do something constructive with the experience.
Research has suggested that neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) offers an excellent technique of learning inner communication among its benefits.
Here are some of the benefits NLP offers to help lift your business higher.
· Change or eliminate limiting behaviours.
· Learn how to control your mental and emotional states of mind.
· Become adept at communicating with anyone you meet – including yourself.
· Have a powerful new positive mindset to call on in times of stress.
· Get the results you want, and lead the life you want.
The NLP coaching will give you the ability to see the big picture, and a vision of what your success will look like tomorrow.
It is a process.
NLP is a learning process to make you aware of how you are spending your time and energy with regards to your business. If you are not making intentional choices with regard to business success, release the time spent on people and activities that do not share the vision. Getting rid of time wasting will give you time and energy to reach your ultimate goals of success.
Here are some useful tips you can employ for the success of your business with the assistance of NLP techniques.
· Use goal setting to push the boundaries. Goal setting can give you focus and measure progress.
· Focus on providing exceptional products and customer service to keep desirable clients coming back. A business which is focused on customer service reacts quickly to feedback, and promptly addresses any issues.
· Commit to keeping up-to-date with the latest business trends and apply to your business whenever necessary.
· A small business owner will usually have a set daily routine to deal with a variety of tasks to keep the business operating smoothly, and to prevent a backlog building up. The more efficient you are at handling day-to-day activities, the more you can free up time to boost productivity.
· Technology plays an important part in any small business, especially in the field of online marketing and online sales. With the right technology, marketing ploys and promotions can be adapted and changed at any time.
· NLP will help you to sometimes quietly clear your head to get things into perspective, and how to use your intuition when an important decision needs to be made.
Sale and marketing are a topic that many businesses either need more skills in or it is a foreign language. The days of cold calling are long gone. NLP give a bunnies person an edge to be able to truly find a need that your product and or service can deliver to a prospect and provide huge amounts of value. This ensures that all interactions are ethical and for the highest good of both the business and the consumer.
If you are a leader or manage, NLP can allow you to understand how to motivate your staff in a far more leveraged and effective manner than you ever thought possible. As a manager, you know that you are only as good as the people that are in your team. Imagine having a team of world class athletes that were not reaching their full potential due tot eh fact that they did not have the perfect training regime or nutrition plan. NLP is a set of tools and processes that will allow you to be the nutritionist and personal trainer to have all of your staff working as a team and winning ‘winning the premiership’ in your chosen context of business.
The team is only as good as their leader; did you know that if you have your own personal blocks around the success you deserve and the amount of money that you think you are capable of making, this will directly effect the performance of your entire business. What is really alarming about this information is that it is often the case that we are not even aware of our own road blocks due to the fact that they are our own. They end up becoming blind spots. For the same reason that we get a personal trainer to watch our technique in the gym or have a spotter is the same reason that top business performers take on business coaches and earn the art and science of NLP. If you cant see a problem you are unable to fix it. NLP actually teaches you to see the invisible though developing the awareness of what prevents you from actualising your full potential within your sub conscious processes. Ultimately you can generate phenomenal increases in your sales, revenue and profits when you begin to learn and apply the techniques and strategies in this amazing tool kit.
Being constantly aware and focused on your inner vision is also one of the key successes of NLP.
Your inner motivator.
Every person has an inner voice which motivates you to act in one or another way. If you are prone to having a negative mindset, then your inner voice may hold you back from achieving success in your business, and in your life in general. NLP coaching has the potential to change your mindset from a negative trend to a positive outlook.
Your inner motivator may speaking in a negative way, and not really helping you to act positively. NLP can access the subconscious mind, eliminate limiting thoughts, and restore self-confidence.
Studies have revealed that most successful people are self-motivated and have learned to trust their intuition. Those who downplay their intuitive strengths, will find it much more difficult to make a success of business – and in other areas of life.
