Many valid approaches to ending bad habits invite you to change your individual, limiting beliefs. Self-esteem and motivation are often examined. This is fine, but is it really necessary to question your self-esteem when you can’t break a bad habit?
Recently I got to thinking:
What if there were universal beliefs (not individual or personal) that make it difficult or impossible to change a bad habit?
After a few weeks, I felt onto something BIG. This is a new paradigm that challenges the nearly universal beliefs about habits that keep people trapped in unhealthy patterns of behavior for decades.
This is brand new material that the iNLP Center has never taught before and it’s compatible with NLP, life coaching and belief change work in general. We’re excited to start sharing it! with you!
It addresses sacred-cow killing stuff, like:
• How existing research on habits in Western Culture adds up to a BIG ZERO.
• The specific, limiting beliefs held by nearly everyone with a bad habit.
• The only obvious way to change a limiting belief.
• Why we fall into the trap if bad habits and feel stuck with them.
• How to escape the trap without trying to escape.
Again, this is brand new, paradigm-level stuff, There aren’t specific NLP or coaching techniques that go with it yet. Imagine being locked away in a prison cell under false pretenses. Then, someone shows up to clear up the mess and free you. When your cell door opens and the light of day shines in, will you need a special technique to know what to do next?
The prison cell is a web of beliefs.
