How to Make Better Decisions using the NLP Decision Making Strategy

If you are like many others, you may have trouble making good decisions consistently. It is possible for you to learn how to make great decisions nearly all of the time with neuro-linguistic programming techniques. One of these techniques is called the NLP decision making strategy. When you learn how to use it, you can make better decisions that can improve your life. At Premier Life Coaching, we can give you the skills that you need to improve your decision-making abilities and your life.

Recognizing reality

Some people have trouble when they are presented with a decision because they forget to be practical while recognizing reality. For example, they might purchase a car that costs more than they can realistically afford and then struggle to make the car payment and insurance payment every month. In the car-buying situation, they might fail to negotiate prices and might get swept up in the excitement, paying far more than they should. They might ignore what their needs really are and give in to impulsivity instead.

If you have this problem, you can help yourself to make better purchasing decisions by starting out with a written plan. You can write down scenarios in advance and how you will react to them. You can set a limit and make yourself stay within your budget instead of allowing yourself to be pushed out of it by a skillful salesperson. The best way to put an end to patterns of poor decision-making is to utilize the NLP decision-making strategy.

What is the NLP decision-making strategy?

The NLP-decision making strategy incorporate three of your senses into the process of your decision making, including your visual sense, auditory sense, and kinesthetic sense. When you incorporate these senses into the decisions that you make, you are likely to make better choices.

Going back to the car purchasing example, think about what it is that you do first when you are making a decision about a vehicle and what your initial consideration might be. Identify whether that first action appeals to your visual, auditory, or kinesthetic sense. Then, think about the second thing that you do. Ask yourself whether it appeals to your visual, auditory, or kinesthetic sense. Finally, you will want to think about whether there is anything about the car that appeals to the remaining of the three senses. If you can’t identify anything, you will then want to work on bringing that third sense into your process of making a decision.

You can then write a list of requirements that should be met by a car before you agree to purchase it. If a car doesn’t meet all of the items on your list, you can simply walk away. In the car-buying scenario, this can provide a way for you to find the car that will meet your needs the best.

This technique is not limited to purchasing vehicles, of course. Everyone has weaknesses that lead them to make bad decisions. Your particular weak area might be anything such as poor motivation, eating, times when you are faced with a difficult decision, or arguments. When you use the NLP decision-making strategy and incorporate your visual, auditory, and kinesthetic senses into the way in which you make decisions, the decisions that you make may be better because you will have integrated more of yourself with your thinking process.

Other NLP techniques

In addition to the NLP decision-making strategy, there are a number of other NLP techniques that might be helpful to help you make better decisions while gaining the skills that you need to be more successful. NLP techniques are effective in helping people tackle a number of areas, including weight loss, smoking, career advancement, happiness, and better relationships.
