Beliefs are the generalization about the world we live in. It is the convictions that certain things are real and true. We always hold on to our belief as important because we believe it is true despite any other opinion. Your beliefs can be from your environment, stories told by your parents and friends, experiences and so on. Your belief determines whether you can do something or not because they are conscious enough to be neglected. Belief is being held at a deep level because we always assume that they are true and we will not realize how what we do is being affected by this belief. You can get upset and even fight when someone dare to question your belief. Your belief affects your mental habit even when you have no real evidence supporting it. Your beliefs depend on your perception about the world and the things around you. NLP which is a life changing therapy is concerned with that negative belief which limits our everyday performance and how to change it. The positive and negative concept of your belief is the content of reality in your belief. NLP helps you to know more about your internal maps and be able to differentiate between the positive and the negative belief. Not accepting your negative belief as a threat is very harmful.

According to NLP, meaning of past experience can be changed by changing your sub-modality. Your concept and the way you view your limiting belief matters and have to be changed. Always interrupt your limiting belief and reinforce the value of the new belief.
3.Step into the new belief you want to have

From the above points, you see that your sensory input builds up your mental maps. The better you see, look, hear and connect to your feelings, and the less you filter the information you receive, the better your maps will be. And also the better you will connect and communicate with the world. But when you don’t perceive your environment positively it will affect you there by leading to limiting beliefs. To change some of this limiting beliefs, we change some of the qualities of this sensory inputs. This is because when you change the qualities you change the experience itself. From there you will boost and reinforce your good and useful beliefs.
