IINLP NLP Beliefs for Working with Clients & Participants

  • There is no failure, only feedback
    Failure is only a judgment about short-term results. Neither you nor others fail.
  • If you want to understand, act
    Action is the answer; the learning is in the doing.
  • We already have all the resources we need or can create them
    There are no unresourceful people, only unresourceful states of mind.
  • All behaviour has a purpose
    Actions are not random; everyone is always trying to achieve something, although they may not be clear what that is.
  • Having a choice is better than having no choice.
    If a person is given a better choice according to their values and beliefs, then they will take it. Always act to increase choice.
  • You are doing the best you can
    – and you could probably do better.
  • You create your own reality
    You operate as if those mental maps are reality.
    These mental maps can limit potential more than real constraints from the outside world

These principles have been shown to benefit everyone inside and outside the community.
