Two Types of Beliefs

According to NLP psychology of success, there two types of beliefs.

Empowering Beliefs: related to excellence and how it could be achieved.

Limiting Beliefs: your behavior is not what you want, but you think you cannot change it. Change, replace or discard completely such beliefs!



Bhagavad Gita quotes

Man is made by his belief. As he believes, so he is.







Beliefs are the assumptions we make about ourselves, about others in the world and about how we expect things to be. Beliefs are about how we think things really are, what we think is really true and what therefore expect as likely consequences that will follow from our behavior.

According to Jemie Smart, an NLP guru, you can model beliefs as ‘feed-forward’ mechanisms that sort and filter data in order to prove themselves to be true. Beliefs are valuable resources, generalizations that people use to give themselves a sense of certainty and a basis for decision-making in an uncertain and ambiguous world.

Values are about how we have learnt to think things ought to be or people ought to behave, especially in terms of qualities such as honesty, integrity and openness.

Often, both companies and individuals will choose values such as value creation, social responsibility, integrity, quality, respect for others, service, innovation, and profitability. Use those values to define your position with regard to your life and business. The values you choose, and the order of priority you place on your choices, will determine your approach to your life and business.

We are, ourselves, almost always unaware of the nature of our own basic assumptions, but they are enacted through our behavior - what we say and do.

More widely, assumptions shaping our behavior relate to cultural context (See East vs. West: Philosophy and Cultural Values)




Attitudes are the established ways of responding to people and situations that we have learned, based on the beliefs, values and assumptions we hold. Attitude become manifest through our behavior.
