How To Address People With Limiting Beliefs

Imagine yourself to be in a critical position in which you need to persuade and influence a good number of people given the differences of their personalities, beliefs, and behavior. Surely, you would end up in a very difficult situation. While it may be true that you would be able to influence people, you have to expect that not all will be easily persuaded to your beliefs. In fact, not all of them will end up agreeing with you. You might even be lucky if 2 or 3 people would even be persuaded or influenced by your statement.

However, with the effective use of the theories and the principles applied in Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), you would be able to address this problem and find a better way to persuade and influence people. NLP is a method of learning that also helps remedy the limiting beliefs of people.

It is true that limiting beliefs is a great deterrent for us to be able to achieve our goals. We are limited by our present notions and beliefs and sometimes such beliefs get in the way with our goals. Our beliefs may be considered to be detrimental to our success unless we find a good remedy to it and that is in the form of NLP.

Step by step strategy to remedy limiting beliefs:

Once you would be able to employ the NLP strategies, you would be able to establish new beliefs that will not hinder in your pursuance to success. Once you would be able to do so, persuading and influencing others with such deterrent beliefs will no longer be a problem for you.

Think of a limiting belief

The first step to dealing with the problem is to establish the problem itself and to identify its relative sub modalities. Say for instance, your limiting belief is that you cannot drive and its relative sub modalities would be crushed cars or vehicular accidents. While it can be traumatic, it is the most important initial step to address the problem.

Think of a previous limiting belief that you no longer believe now.

For instance, you may previously believe that there are vampires. But now, you know they dont exist.

Think of a belief that is universally accepted to be true.

This may involve you believing that you CAN graduate college. That is a belief that is generally true. Think of a belief that may hinder your limiting belief which will create a positive version to your limiting belief.

If your limiting belief is that you cannot drive. Establish a belief that will alter the previous. You can say, You are expert in following instructions. Thus, by just being keen in following instructions, you can learn to drive thus altering your limited belief.
