Do you use the power of language to your advantage on a regular basis to create the business outcomes you desire?
One powerful and simple tool is called pre-framing—use it to influence the results you get in any situation and experience you have each and every day. Pre-framing is where you create in your own and others’ minds how a particular situation, interaction, experience, meeting, interview, and so on will be. It is a tool with which you can influence high-quality outcomes, through the use of short and concise throwaway lines.
It is super simple; as there are no limitations and all you need to do is create. You have unlimited potential with this tool. Use it anytime you set an intention for your business, the people who work within it and for your life in general.
The trick is to word your pre-frames in a way that indicates the outcome is a ‘done deal’. Pre-framing allows you to stack the odds to creating what you want and to influence other people’s behaviour in a positive way. Examples of pre-framing statements are:
It really is simple: you just create and use your imagination. There is no right or wrong, just statements—and the beauty is, if the statement you use does not influence the result you desire in a positive way, create again and throw another pre-framing statement out there. If you choose to use this tool, you will observe that you get what you focus on, so you will greatly increase the likelihood of getting what you want.
Your turn—Go ahead now and create a range of pre-framing statements that will influence your business success.
