Can we change negative beliefs? Here are some tips and why we have them.
I’m really annoyed with myself when I think back. I used to think that “no-one was on my side” and that came from a decision that I made many moons ago. Something happened and I decided that I was on my own. So, as we do, my brain focused on that decision. It became a belief and created my “reality” and I never noticed when anyone was there for me.
Here’s the explanation for what is happening: There are at least two million pieces of information of raw, unlabelled data that come into our senses. Things that we hear, things that we see and things that we touch. And we have a great filtering system so that we can reduce this amount of information to a manageable amount – about 7 bits of information per second. One of the filters that we use is the decisions that we make in a split second. These then become beliefs and cause us to believe that whatever we decided is the truth. We delete any things that are positive such as “people are there to support me”.

So, I’d like to ask you what decisions have you made that create your beliefs and your reality? AND, if you decided to look for evidence that the opposite is true, would that be helpful? Could you form new beliefs and therefore have a more positive life?
Give it a go and become more aware of how you have created your reality and look for evidence of what you want and let me know if you’d like to have some help to change your beliefs to positive ones.
If you are interested in learning more about other techniques to help yourself or others to change a negative belief into a positive belief take a look at my NLP Certified Practitioner training as we have a section where we learn how to do just that using submodalities. My trainees learn and perform this technique on the course and the results are extraordinary in some cases some people having a negative belief for many years is changed to something positive in around 20 minutes!
