Failure as a Stepping Stone To Success

NLP Solutions: Three Guiding Principles

Success depends on both what you do and how you do it.

Being creatures of pattern and habit, we unknowingly achieve success and construct our failures. Taken together, the three NLP guiding principles – (i) failure is not an accident; (ii) feedback is the foundation of success; and (iii) success has a structure - can help you change old habits of thinking and your success hit rate.

Once you have taken these three guiding principles on board, you will have at hand a valuable source of information - an effective prescription for exactly the progress you desire. "These three principles make it possible to turn what we used to think of as setbacks into success, get the feedback we need in order to know what to do next, and figure out the key factors we need to get right if we are to succeed".1

The Trap of Fixation on Success

Success is nearly a magical idea for most people. In his Book The Active Life, Parker Palmer points out that in the West fixation of people on success discourages them from risk taking "because it values success over learning, and it abhors failures whether we learn from it or not. It always wants to win but win or lose, it inhibits our learning. If we win, we think we know it all and have nothing more to learn. If we lose, we feel so defeated that learning is a hollow consolation... It traps us in a system of praise or blame, credit or shame, a system that gives primacy to goals and external evaluations, devalues the gift of self-knowledge, and diminishes our capacity to take risks that may yield growth."6

How To Succeed in Business

8 Best Practices of Successful Companies

"Every successful enterprise requires three men – a dreamer, a businessman, and a son-of-a-bitch." ~ Peter McArthur

99 percent of businesses started by people lacking business experience fail within the first two or three years. However, 80 percent of businesses started by experienced businesspeople succeed. Why should this be so? The reason is because experienced businesspeople know what to do. They know how to purchase their products and their services. They know how to negotiate with their suppliers. They know how to raise money. They know how to negotiate leases. They know how to sell and to achieve lasting customer success. They know how to manage their finances. In other words, experience is the key. In order to start your own business and succeed, you have to learn how.

 Case in Point  Getting the Best out of Students

Benjamin Zander, a celebrated music teacher, a conductor of the Boston Philharmonic, and the author of the book called The Art of Possibility, has an effective strategy for getting best out of his students. In NLP terms, this strategy is called 'Creating Inevitable Success'. On the first day of class, Zander tells his first year students that they all get an A. There is only one condition. Their first assignment is to write a letter to him - dated on the last day of class - explaining why they deserved the highest grade.

Zander believes there are several beneficial aspects of this dramatic role reversal:

  1. It is a great confidence builder for his students.

  2. It eliminates the often counterproductive sniping that people frequently engage in when they think only a few will win.

  3. Students invariably knock themselves out for that A because they do more to earn their own personal A than they would ever do for the traditional A given by a teacher.7
