Two of the premise NLP is based on is choice is better than no choice, and NLP should create choice and wholeness. Therefore, when we are looking at the aspect of a growth versus fixed mindset – NLP is focused on growth.  

While some people do tend to have more of a fixed mindset, this isn’t a hardwired program – it is learned; and can be changed. We’ve found that the fixed mindset comes in when people don’t like change, have a fear of failure, a dislike of the unknown, desire certainty, are past-focused or are unable to associate to a different future.  

A fixed mindset isn’t always opportune for growth, change or enhancement. Therefore, the tools of NLP can be used to change this pattern into one that is more embracing and desiring of growth.
