You Can Change Your Beliefs using Neuro Linguistic Programming Techniques

“Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning.”Albert Einstein

Do you have beliefs like, “I can never be successful” or “I’ll never be able to lose weight”?

These types of limiting beliefs can hold you back and prevent you from living the life of your dreams.

But you don’t have to let your beliefs limit you. There are Neuro Linguistic Programming techniques for shifting your thinking and changing your beliefs.

What’s Guiding Your Beliefs?

Your evaluations guide what you believe about yourself and the world around you.

Your evaluations, how you make sense of the world, determine your actions.

Your actions, what you do, determine your success.

So how do you evaluate the world?

You evaluate the world through questions.

The Power of Questions

Questions control what you focus on and change how you feel.

For example, a question like “Why can’t I lose weight?” focuses your mind on all the reasons you can’t lose weight. On the other hand “How can I lose weight” focuses your mind on all the reasons you can.

In other words, questions can either empower or disempower you.

Here are a few disempowering questions:

• “Why can’t I save any money?”

• “Why can’t I find anyone to love me?”

• “Why can’t I quit smoking?”

• “Why am I always messing up?”

Questions like these can cause you to evaluate your world negatively and steer your thoughts in a negative direction.

As your thoughts go so do your beliefs.

That’s why you can’t have the life you want, because you don’t believe it’s possible. You have developed negative beliefs about yourself and your abilities.

Using Empowering Questions to Shift Your Beliefs

One of the most powerful Neuro Linguistic Programming Techniques is learning to ask the right questions, questions that empower you.

The right questions will focus your mind in the direction you’d like to go.

Here are some empowering questions you can use to focus your mind on success:

“What am I happy about right now?”

If you can’t think of anything then ask, “What could I be happy about right now?”

Here’s where you can use the modalities found in Neuro Linguistic Programing techniques to help you quickly shift your thinking and change your beliefs.

Ask yourself, “What about that makes me happy?”

As you answer this question you need to determine how you feel, what you see, and what you hear when you are happy.

Next ask “What am I excited about right now?”

If you can’t think of anything then ask, “What could I be excited about right now?”

Now ask yourself, “What about that makes me excited?”

How to you feel, what do you see, what do you hear when you are excited?

Now go through the same process with the following questions:

“Who do I love? Who loves me?”

“What am I grateful for?”

“What is funny in my life right now?”

“What am I really passionate about in my life right now?”

These questions will help you control your focus.

Questions Also Control What You Don’t Pay Attention to

Your conscious mind can only process and keep in your short term memory about 5 to 9 bits of information at any one time.

That’s why you can remember your telephone number and your social security number so easily but, for most people, if you try to remember 20 names of new people you meet you have a lot of difficulty.

The same thing goes when you try to pay attention to what’s going on around you.  You can only pay attention to 5 to 9 bits of information at a time.

If you think about it there are literally thousands if not millions of things going on around you that you could focus on.

For example, if you wanted to you could focus on your heartbeat. You could also focus on the smell coming from your shoes or how tight your underwear is. If you really wanted to you could focus on the air moving in the room.

The fact is you probably don’t spend much time paying attention to any of these. If you did you would go into sensory overload.

Your brain just can’t focus on all of these. It can only focus on 5 to 9 things at a time.

That’s why when you ask “Why am I always messing up?” your conscious mind comes up with all the times you messed up and ignores all the times you’ve done things successfully.

It’ limited to what it can focus on.

To limit the bits of information it has to delete all the times you’ve been successful.

The same goes for how you feel.

If you ask, “Why do I feel bad all the time?” your conscious mind deletes anything that you could feel good about. Now you’re focused on all the bad things in your life.

If you want to shift the way you think you have to change the things you are deleting.

This means you need to change the questions you are asking yourself.

Your Questions Change the Resources that are Available to You

If you ask yourself a question like, “Why can’t I save any money?” you limit the resources your mind has available to it.

To have more empowering resources available, ask yourself questions that will bring you the resources you need.

For example:

“What’s great about this?”

Now you might automatically think “Nothing”.

So in order to gather resources you could ask, “What could be great about this?”

Your answer might be, “My situation is telling me that in order to have more financial success I have to do things differently than I’m doing them today.”

The next question to ask is, ”What’s not perfect yet?”

Now the great thing about this question is that it assumes that things CAN get better, right?

Neuro Linguistic Programming calls this a presupposition.

It presupposes a belief that things can change.

“What’s not perfect yet is I have not put a plan in place that allows me to put money aside every paycheck.”

Now that you know what’s not perfect yet, ask yourself, “What am I willing to do to make it better?” or “What am I willing to do to make it the way I want it?”

Again this question presupposes that you are willing to take the action needed to move yourself from where you are to where you want to be.

An answer here might be, “What I’m willing to do to make it the way I want it is I’m go to make an automatic deposit from my paycheck to a savings account every week of $100.”

Now that you know what you will do ask yourself, “What I am willing to give up to so I can make my life the way I want it?” or “What am I no longer willing to do so I can get what I want?”

Your answer might be, “I am willing to give up drinking my daily $5 latte and my daily $15 lunches.”

Finally you need to commit to your new behavior so ask, “How can I accomplish this and enjoy the process?”

“I can make my lunch every day and sit outside in the shaded area and enjoy the sunshine. I can also invest in one of those coffee machines and make flavored coffee for 50 cents a drink.”

Now you’re having a good time eating lunch and still getting your caffeine fix at a fraction of the cost of your daily latte fix.

Again you’re focused on where you want your life to go.
