Goal Setting rules of NLP
1. You must state goals in the positive — what you do want, not what you don’t want. Nature abhors a vacuum. State what you want not what you don’t want. The brain deletes negatives.
2. You must be able to represent it to yourself by way of the 5 senses. How do you see it, hear it, taste it, smell it, and feel it? Where do you feel it, where do you want it,
when and with whom?
3. You must be able to start or initiate your action independently and be able to carry it out independently. It is what you can do and not what others do that counts. How will you start it and how will you carry it through to the end result?
4. The goal you are attempting to attain does not interfere in any negative ways with your natural life state and that of others. Is there anything that you would have to give up or sacrifice when you make the change? How will you and others around you be effected?
