Reprogramming Your Belief System For Success in 5 Simple Steps

Reprogramming Your Belief System For Success
Have you ever stopped to wonder why you hold certain beliefs - beliefs about the world, life and yourself....

You might find that some of the beliefs you hold about yourself are actually holding you back from achieving what you are capable of - but how do you go about resetting your belief system to get around this block? 

In a hurry? Listen on the go!


Hopefully by now you have read, or are reading, the free books available on the website (if not, then I suggest you do as soon as possible). If so, then you should have gleaned from them that at the very core of success is the belief in yourself that you can achieve whatever it is that you dream off.

As Napoleon Hill puts it in Think and Grow Rich, 'Whatever the mind can perceive and believe, it can achieve', and also to quote Henry Ford, 'Whether you believe you can, or believe you can't - you are right'.

These are powerful statements. Our achievements in life are dependent on us believing in our own ability - in our belief system.

Understanding the Power of Your Belief System

Think about it - how many times throughout your life have you talked yourself out of doing something? Plenty right? Negative self talking yourself, telling yourself that you can't do it, you are not good enough, it's someone else that does this type of stuff - not you.

That's because in most cases, our belief systems are suppressed all through our childhood, as we are constantly told by our parents, teachers, family and friends what we are capable of and what we can and can't achieve, and this embeds itself deep in our subconscious and programs our mind into believing that this is the case - it becomes our paradigm.

you can't do that limited beliefs

Well, let me tell you something - your potential is limitless!

If you want to change your circumstances, then you need to change yourself - stay the same, and everything else will stay the same, you need to be the variable in the equation.

Question Your Beliefs

The first step is to CHANGE YOUR BELIEF SYSTEM.... Hopefully the capital letters got across my point of how important this is?

You need to unlearn the negative things that you think are the truth, and re-program your mind with a new, positive program about yourself.

Here's how it works:

subconscious programming of your belief system

Your self image is your starting point - taking into account all of the experiences of your life, you've built up a picture of yourself, of who you are. 

Who you see yourself as has a major impact on your beliefs, alongside all the information you have picked up along the way - what you have had drummed into you as you grew up by parents and other people you have been around. 

This determines how you see the world, your perception, YOUR reality (that's exactly what it is, it's all about perception!), and as such defines how you think and feel about things - your opinions and emotions, etc. 

This in turn defines the actions that you will (or won't) take in any given situation, and the quality and consistency of the actions that you take have a direct correlation with the results that you will achieve in your life.

Now here's the interesting part. The cycle doesn't stop there. 

The results you achieve feed back into your self image, and continues to flow. So, if you are achieving poor results, what effect does that have on your self image? 

It makes you feel bad about yourself doesn't it? 

Which in turn affects your belief system, triggering limiting beliefs and thoughts that you can't do this or you are not good enough, so you limit the amount of action you take (or stop altogether), meaning your results get worse, and now you are stuck in a downward cycle - or, stuck in a 'rut' as they call it.

Taking Control of Your Belief System

Well, the good news is that you can control this cycle. Even better, you don't have to change it all, only 1 thing - your belief system. Once you change this, the rest will follow in through the cycle.

Silencing the Negative Self-Talk

The first thing I want you to do is to eradicate the negative self talk - the annoying voice in your head that tells you you can't. 

Acknowledge it, realise that it is nothing but a thought, not your thought, but just a thought.. give it a name, a face, and when it talks to you, don't get drawn into the crap it tries to tell you about you!

Harnessing the Power of Positive Affirmations

Next, I want you to replace this negative talk with positive affirmations - a list of positive 'I AM' statements about yourself. 

These are powerful, as when you say the words I AM then your subconscious listens in and takes note of the words that follow so that it can feed this into your belief system. 

This is the principle of auto suggestion described in the book Think and Grow Rich.

Repetition of this action daily, consistently, WILL begin to change your beliefs and you will notice a difference in the way you begin to think, and from this point you will realise that you are in control of your results!

Implementing the Action Plan

To solidify these transformative practices, let's create a concise action plan to guide you towards a positive, success-oriented mindset...

Implementing the Action Plan

Be Mindful of Negative Self-Talk

Consciously observe when you engage in negative self-talk. Cultivate mindfulness, and as soon as you notice it, interrupt the pattern and replace it with positive affirmations.

Create Empowering "I AM" Statements

Craft a list of positive "I AM" statements that reflect the qualities and traits you aspire to possess. Write them down and keep them readily accessible. Examples include:

  • I am deserving of success and abundance.
  • I am a magnet for positive opportunities and growth.
  • I am resilient and overcome obstacles with ease.
  • I am constantly evolving into the best version of myself.

Vocalize Your Affirmations

Read your list of affirmations aloud twice a day, in the morning and at night, with conviction and confidence. Let your voice resonate with the power of your words. Immerse yourself in the positivity and belief that each affirmation brings.

Integrate Affirmations Throughout the Day

Repeat your affirmations silently in your mind as you go about your daily tasks. Select one affirmation to focus on for a specific period, allowing it to permeate your thoughts and reinforce your belief system.

Consistency is Key

Commit to practicing this daily routine for a minimum of one month to establish a habit and experience noticeable changes in your thinking patterns. Consistency is vital for reprogramming your belief system and cultivating a success mindset.


Reprogramming your belief system for success is a transformative journey that requires dedication and commitment. By challenging and replacing limiting beliefs with empowering thoughts, you can unlock your true potential. Remember, change starts within you. 

Albert Einstein quotes to change your belief system

As Albert Einstein famously said, "Doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting a different result is the definition of insanity." Embrace the change, harness the power of your belief system, and watch as success unfolds in your life.

We hope this article has provided valuable insights and practical steps to help you on your path to achieving a success-oriented mindset. By implementing these strategies consistently, you can overcome self-imposed limitations and embrace a life filled with growth, achievement, and fulfilment.

Remember, your belief system holds the key to unlocking your dreams. Be the change you want to see, and let your unwavering belief in yourself guide you towards the success you deserve.
