Without a well-formed outcome in goal setting, Hence it is impossible to archive your desire goal.

Meanwhile, In this blog, I will explain to you how most successful people using the NLP technique for well-formed outcomes in goal setting.


 What is NLP?

What Is NLP? | Neuro Linguistic Programming | NLP Academy

NLP (Neuro-linguistic programming) is a psychotherapy that is created by Richerd Bandler and Joan Grinder after studying the behavior of successful people.

So, They discovered that ordinary and successful people think differently while they making a decision. Also, Successful people consider various conditions before setting a goal but ordinary people just beginning.

NLP model helps to design the well-formed desire outcome. Meanwhile, As per the founder of NLP, it can be explained in the following three components-


So, As per the Bandler and Grinder humans experience the world subjectively and we create a subjective representation of our experience. Meanwhile These subjective representations of experience represent in terms of 5 senses and language that is vision, audition, lactation, olfaction, and gestation.

For example, when we anticipate the future in our mind we will “see” images, “hear” sounds, “taste” flavors, “feels” tactile sensations, “smell” odors, and think in any language.


NLP is based on the fact that consciousness has two types that is a conscious component and unconscious component. Also, All the subjective representations that happened outside of an individual’s awareness referred to the unconscious mind.


NLP uses a method of learning known as modeling. So, This method claimed that it is possible to codify and reproduce any previous expertise in any domain and activity.

Setting of Goal

The Secret To Getting What You Want: Goal-Setting -  WhateverItTakesMotivation

So, The first step in designing a well-formed desire outcome in goal setting is to know what you want. Meanwhile, unfortunately, it is easy to find out what we don’t want instead of what we want? This thing puts our focus on that thing which we want to avoid instead of a thing which is necessary to be done.

For example, if you don’t like fat on your body then you should say reverse to it I want to slim and healthy. So the desired outcome needs to stay positive. So, Use the positive words for your desired outcome.

In sensory terms think that what will you feel, see, and hear when you get your desired outcome? Build a story in your mind like a film director does before filming it.

However, finding out what you want is the first step in designing your desired outcome.

Context of Desire Outcome

Set a timeframe

When you want the desired outcome? Set a timeframe to it. If you don’t set a timeframe then maybe you will get your desire outcome but not at the time where it needs the most. Also, consider that does the timeframe fit with everything else that you need to be done in your life? It will sharpen your focus and motivate you to take action towards your goal. Meanwhile, You can use words like next month or by the end of the year with your time frame.

Set the place

Also, Set a place doesn’t mean the physical place; it means the situation in which you want your desired outcome. So, with the decision of your outcome, you should consider the conditions in which you want that.

Person involve

So,  With whom you want the outcome? While the deciding desired outcome you should think about the person who will be involved in archiving the outcome.

Hence, It doesn’t mean that you will depend on that person for the result. Meanwhile, Big achievements require a great team.

Purpose of Desire Outcome

Desired Outcome - Not a Great Single Barometer for Customer Success Anymore?

So, Why do you want the desired outcome? After having that what will you experience or allow you to have? Hence You should find out answers to these questions before deciding your desire outcome.

For example, if you want to earn a lot of money then you should clear that where you will use that money. So, If you use it to enjoy a very luxurious lifestyle then are you sure that it will give you satisfaction or your expectation will increase more. Also, Through this, you will lock in a trap of money.

So, the next question is what to do? You should decide the purpose of your desire outcome fixedly before getting it with considering all the future aspects of that.

Checks for the desired outcome

So, After setting your goal and finding out the purpose you should consider the following points to make your goal more clear-

Self-initiated and maintained The well-formed outcome should be chosen by you rather than suggested by other people. Meanwhile, it is difficult to work for the outcome which gives pleasing to others. For example, if a lady tries to losing weight just to keep her husband interested in herself will become difficult for her. But id she loses weight to stay healthy and fit make their self more easy and satisfied.

Action Plan

To archive the outcome you must have a must action plan which clear, precise, and understandable to others. So, All the steps and stages should be mentions clearly with the strategy in the plan.


Many people don’t get the outcome because they have the resources which they required. They just go ahead than their resources.

So, you should have sub-goals to arrange the resources which are required for the main goal. So, This will easy to have a clear focus on the main goal and archive without any obstacle. Meanwhile resources are of two types of internal resources and external resources. So, Internal resources are attitude, identity, values believe and external resources are money, time, people.

There is one more important check you should consider while deciding a well-formed outcome that is a balance of ecological for all areas of your life with the outcome.

The outcome should be ecological for your health, relationship, values, and finance. That should me realm for what possible for you.


You should have a measurement for knowing the status of the outcome archive with the timeframe. Like a month, a year from now I will have that amount of significant progress in my life.


In nutshell, I want to say that through in NLP you have to think about what would happen to you when you archive the outcome and there are a lot of successful people who us the NLP to improve themself and get their outcome.
