According to neuro linguistic programming, a belief is not a mere idea; a belief is an idea to which you adhere, an idea to which you consciously or subconsciously said ‘Yes! That’s mine!’ Following are the 3 types of beliefs you need to have to be able to design the life that you envision.
To the events, you give one or several meanings. These meanings give birth to some beliefs, beliefs regarding yourself, others and the world around you. All of this builds a set of convictions that will help you to realize extraordinary things or stop you in the search of excellence.
Following are the 3 types of beliefs you need to have to be able to design the life that you envision:
1. You need to believe in yourself. Self-confidence and self-esteem are often destroyed or lost by our different experiences in life. When one lost his self-esteem, he begins to play the “blame” game. People who have healthy and high self-esteem play the “I know I can do it” game or the “I deserve to be happy and successful” game. These attitudes will ultimately create a system that will attract the good that they desire. The games you play regarding yourself become self-fulfilling prophecies.
2. You need to believe in others. Self-confident people know that they need others to succeed, solve problems, grow, change and communicate. That’s the reason why you need to choose your friends very carefully. They will determine your future. The influence they can have on you can destroy you or create an enormous amount of positive energy that will have you achieve success faster than you ever thought possible.
3. You need to believe in God, the Universe or some higher power. People who are self-actualized believe in some sort of higher power, something or someone who is beyond them, that is in control of everything and that will give them everything they need, for their best and highest good. Believing that the Universe, source of all power, wants you to be successful, will give you the strength you need to pursue your dreams and turn your dreams into reality.
Now the question is: “On a scale from 1 to 10, 1 being the lowest, how much do you believe in yourself, others and the Universe?” Design your life now. Ask and you shall receive. You can apply many neuro linguistic programming techniques to achieve what you really want.
