The 4 Keys to Achievement

Learning comes alive when it drives the choices that drive action. It’s not enough to learn about: we want to learn to do something that we could not do without more skill or more information. Learning sticks when it leads to achievement, and achievement means more when it drives learning. It’s a win/win.

On April 28, 2018, you’ll have a chance to explore the whole cycle, from self-discovery to telling your story. You’ll reflect on the difficult, satisfying things that you have achieved in the past, and the ones that are calling to you from your future. 

You’ll hear keynotes and presentations from ten trainers and master practitioners trained at NLP Canada Training. And you’ll make real connections and share stories, best hopes, and learning during breakout exercises.  

The 4 Keys to Achievement

In just one day, you can build a clearer picture of what you need to do next to move towards achievement.

There are four keys:

1) Know yourself. This means actively seeking more awareness. Discovering you’re capable of more than you thought is often the first step in deciding to want to do something difficult. The next step is defining an achievement that will be both difficult enough to be a stretch and satisfying enough to be worth the work.

2) Make connections. You need to connect what you know to what you need to know, and that means developing more sensitive radar for the people and circumstances that will drive you forward. You’ll also need help to achieve something that’s both difficult and satisfying - so you’ll need to connect other people to your vision of the thing you want to achieve.

3) Take action. Sometimes this means making choices, deciding what to think and what to do. Sometimes this means making an effort to make something different. Often, when you’re trying to accomplish something hard,  you won’t be sure what action to take. It’s especially important then to choose to take a baby step so that you can notice results and decide again.

4) Learn from your results. Begin with fearless, non-judgmental self-reflection. What did you notice and how do you feel about it? Should you keep moving in the same direction or is it time for a new map? When you know, make what you have learned stick. When you tell the story of what you chose and what you did and how it turned out, you make it more likely that you’ll remember what you’ve learned and build on it.
