In the previous section we looked at the presuppositions of NLP and introduced the learning strategy around which this entire website is built, a simple metaphor which we labelled the building blocks of NLP.
As you're now familiar with the concept of building block upon block, base skill upon base skill we are ready to move on and begin looking at other tools that will assist in learning these skills quickly and easily.
A good way to ensure success when rising to meet a challenge such as learning a new skill is to follow these five principles for success:-
Know your outcome
Take positive action
Have enough sensory awareness to know if you're being effective
Have behavioural flexibility
Operate from a physiology and a psychology of excellence
These five principles for success will be explained in more detail on the next page.
