NLP: Being At Cause Versus Effect – Which side was Oprah on?

“I don’t think of myself as a poor deprived ghetto girl who made good. I think of myself as somebody, who from an early age, knew I was responsible for myself and I had to make good.” – Oprah Winfrey

Being At Cause Versus Effect

NLP: Being at Cause versus Effect. Which side of cause-effect was Oprah on? Being at Cause is taking responsibility for the outcome of your life. In other words, taking responsibility for finding the solution. Being at Effect is staying in victim mode -blaming the circumstances for the state you are in.

NLP Meta Model focuses on taking the client from Effect to Cause and then assisting them to their outcome. (The solution)


“NLP helps me to manage audiences and motivate them. It’s just amazing!” -Oprah
