The Map Is Not The Territory
Every second of our lives, millions of bits of information are streaming through our five senses into our minds, but only 30 plus or minus 2 bits gets consciously are registered and processed by our mind.
NLP states that we cannot truly know and understand the world as it truly is, because our conscious awareness is limited and even that tiny bit of information that gets in, we experience it through the conscious and unconscious filters that we have, like our beliefs and values derived from our culture and the way we were brought up.
And because everyone perceives and experiences the world differently, we say that the map is not the territory, meaning that what we picture in our brain as the world outside is not the actual world itself but a small representation of it.
The question here is:
Is the current representation of the world I have in my brain right Now, the most useful one for me? If the answer is not, then what can I Do to change that representation with another one, More Positive that will serve my Goals in a more Productive way
