Be Empowered Using NLP Presuppositions to Rewrite Beliefs That Have Been Holding You Back
Lets imagine for a moment that you are choosing to rewrite or recode your basic presumptions about the world and the way you want to experience it in the future. The creators of neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), Richard Bandler and John Grinder, borrowed the concept that the map is not the territory from the developer of general semantics, Alfred Korzybski.
This expression, and others like it such as the menu is not the meal, infer that in order to process our experiences we create representative constructs of them. The image of a sandwich on a menu in most cases will taste of plastic, ink, and paper as opposed to actually eating the real sandwich. Interestingly, intently focusing upon either one can cause you to salivate if the sandwich is appealing to you.
Our minds are unable to perceive the difference between representative constructs and real experiences. The best example that comes to my mind is the subtle difference between anxiety and fear – anxiety is hypothetical and future-based; fear occurs in the moment. Vividly imagining a horrible or pleasant experience is quite similar to experiencing it in reality. If you don’t believe me, go watch a suspenseful, horror movie, and when you find your heart pounding you’ll get what I’m talking about…
Here are several empowering NLP presuppositions as defined in The User’s Manual For The Brain by Hall and Bodenhamer that you can try on for size and reflect upon past and future experiences. These NLP presuppositions are powerful for understanding how to rewrite beliefs and be empowered.

The map is not the territory
People respond according to their internal maps
Meaning operates context-dependently
Mind-and-body inevitably and inescapably affect each other
Individual skills function by developing and sequencing of representational systems
We respect each person’s model of the world
Person and behavior describe different phenomena – we are more than our behavior
Every behavior has utility and usefulness – in some context
We cannot not communicate
We evaluate behavior and change in terms of context and ecology
The way we communicate affects perception and reception
The meaning of communication lies in the response you get
The one who sets the frame for the communication controls the action
There is no failure, only feedback
The person with the most flexibility exercises the most influence in the system
Resistance indicates the lack of rapport
People have the internal resources they need to succeed
Humans have the ability to experience one-trial learning
All communication should increase choice
People make the best choices open to them when they act
As response-able persons, we can run our own brain and control our results
As you may be able to tell, many of these presuppositions apply to much more than just your own way of thinking – they extend to how you interact with and perceive everything in the universe. They are a roadmap for the ways you choose to interact with other people, how you choose to interpret experiences, and how you can adjust your internal representations to empowering
representations of possibility and potential.
