NLP Presupposition: People Are Doing The Best They Can With The Resources They Have Available.
Everything we need for change and success begins in our minds as thoughts and dreams. Our thoughts and dreams are our mental resources.
People are resourceful.
It’s just that we are sometimes in an unresourceful mind state and don’t access our mental resources.
In an unresourceful state, we think negative thoughts and have nightmares instead of dreams. People often blame outside circumstances, other people or bad luck when they feel down.
Eleanor Roosevelt said that: "No one can make you feel inferior without your consent."
Our mind state is uniquely under our own control. We can control and create our own mind state by choosing our thoughts, no matter what the outside circumstances are, or what other people do.
Be aware of our mind states and switch our mind state from unresourceful to resourceful.
Concentration camp survivor, Viktor Frankl calls the freedom to choose our thoughts under any circumstances, the “last of human freedoms”.
Victor Hugo said: “Nothing can stop an idea whose time has come.”
