New Tools: Changing Belief Systems
Our world is in a time of drastic change. Our economy, technology, society, interpersonal relationships and environment are transforming. The attempt to keep up with such changes triggers important questions that touch on key issues.
With his unrivalled knowledge of the field, Robert Dilts will be teaching new material in Generative NLP. You will be able to work with deep structures to change people’s responses and beliefs.
The programme will include tools for:
- Generating a sense of self-worth and belonging
- Building confidence in a positive future
- Creating a sense of personal capability
- Centering, expanding awareness and letting go of unnecessary limitations
- Breaking out of reactivity and short term perception of time
- Releasing old fears and increasing self-acceptance
- Detecting and filtering possible “thought viruses”
- Building a winning belief system
It has been wisely pointed out that, “If you are full of an answer, you have no space for questions.” Many of our old answers may not serve us any more, and we must let go of them if we are to create space for new answers. This can allow us to better become aware of opportunities and assess risks.
In times of change, however, we can also become more susceptible to limiting beliefs and assumptions. Our beliefs are a very powerful force upon our behavior. It is common knowledge that if someone really believes he can do something he will do it, and if he believes something is impossible no amount of effort will convince him that it can be accomplished. Our beliefs about ourselves and what is possible in the world around us greatly impact our day-to-day effectiveness.
The answer is that it is possible and there is a how-to.
In this workshop Robert will be demonstrating how and making available his latest work. He’ll be sharing specific techniques to elegantly and effectively help people to convert limiting beliefs and thought viruses to beliefs which make possible confidence in a positive future, a sense of personal capability and responsibility, and a sense of self-worth and belonging. This seminar will explore how to build and strengthen empowering beliefs, identify and transform limiting beliefs, and facilitate positive change in ourselves and those around us.
Times of transition and crisis bring out the significance of our beliefs even more strongly. The beliefs and stories that we and others hold during an unstable or crucial time determine the degree of resourcefulness with which we will face the situation.
Empowering beliefs help us to identify and take best advantage of potential opportunities, while limiting beliefs focus us on danger and can trap us into old survival strategies (i.e., attack, retreat, freeze, etc.), operating like a type of “thought virus.” Such “thought viruses” can “infect” our minds and belief systems just as a physical virus can infect our bodies or a computer virus can infect a computer system leading to confusion and malfunctions.
Thus, as our lives and the world around us change, we also need to adapt and update our beliefs and stories about ourselves. Beliefs that once served us can become limiting if they are too rigid. Many of our beliefs were installed in us as children by parents, teachers, our social upbringing and the media before we were aware of their impact or able to have a choice about them. Is it possible to restructure, unlearn or change old beliefs that may be limiting us and imprint new ones that can expand our potential beyond what we currently imagine? If so, how do we do it?
