NLP Presuppositions

The map is not the territory (concept developed by Alfred Korzybski, the founder of General Semantics). Everyone lives in their own unique model of the world

People have all the resources necessary to make any desired change

The meaning of your communication is the response that you get

If what you are doing is not working, do something different. keep varying your behaviour until you get the required result

The person with most flexibility and variation of behaviour is most likely to achieve their outcome"

The positive worth of an individual is held constant, while the value and appropriateness of their behaviour may be questioned

Every behaviour has a positive intention (for that person) and is appropriate in some context



Your mind and your body are parts of the same holistic system

If one person can do something, others can learn to do it

There is no such thing as failure, only feedback

Genuine Understanding only comes from Experience

A person in any situation makes the best choice with the resources currently available to them

Conscious mind capacity is very limited - supposedly to around 5-9 chunks of information.

Any task can be accomplished if it is chunked down into small enough steps

These 'positive philosophies' are useful prerequisites for success in achieving goals
