We are guided by numerous beliefs. These can be both positive and negative. While the positive ones direct us towards success, negative ones prevent us from succeeding. Therefore, in order for us to flourish in life, we need abundance of positive beliefs, keeping the negative ones at bay. Neuro-linguistic programing is a type of therapy which can help people achieve this ideal state of mind, bettering their lives.
Facts about Beliefs and Values
Our beliefs are best to be compared to a pair of glasses we wear. Namely, what we believe in gives our world focus and image. Throughout our lives we develop beliefs regarding other people, we establish a vision of ourselves, the world around us and the laws which guide or limit us. Thus, we have our beliefs about religion, politics, society, different concepts etc. So, our internal representations shape our vision of the world we live in. Often, our beliefs affect our emotions and attitudes, having a great impact on our behavior and our emotional states. NLP can, thereby, replace your negative, constraining, beliefs with some more positive ones, motivating you towards success.
The Roles of Beliefs and Values
Beliefs shape our lives and act as motivators or driving forces of the world inside us. That way, people who believe in their business more than anything else usually neglect their families and friends, considering them secondary.
All this information helps us understand that every belief actually distorts our vision of reality. You should always question your beliefs and check them for distortions, since, in many cases, these will affect your perception of the world. NLP can teach you how to do this as well, uncovering generalizations and distortions in your beliefs and systems of values.
All in all, we can change our lives by changing our beliefs. When we do not want to get in debt and focus our mind on this, our subconsciousness keeps track of signs of debt and warns us timely, making us on the constant lookout, which is a stressful way of life. The same is with other problems and preoccupations. Fortunately, NLP can divert your thoughts from these negativities and teach you to think and, therefore, live a positive life.
Finally, NLP will eradicate negative beliefs from your mind, since these only limit you. “I can't” or “It's impossible” are all obstructive states of mind which only limit you and keep you confined in your own mental cage. Acting as a key to your freedom, NLP can change your beliefs, your present and your future, teaching you how to make a better world for yourself.
