Reprogramming Your Belief System For Success

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.

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.

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.

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:

Image

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.

So, what can you do about it?

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.

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!

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!


ACTION LIST

  • Notice when you are negative self talking - be mindful of it, and stop it
  • Create a list of positive I AM statements about who you are and who you are becoming 
  • Read the list aloud twice a day, in the morning and at night, in a strong, confident voice
  • Repeat the affirmations over and over in your head throughout the day as you go about your daily tasks (I like to choose a particular 1 to focus on for a period)
  • Continue this for 1 month minimum to create the habit and notice the change in your thinking
I hope you take something from this. If it helps one person to improve their thinking and move towards a more successful life, then it will have been worth the time it took to write it.

Remember what I said earlier - if you want things to change then you need to change. To finish off on another quote, as Einstein said, 'Doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting a different result is the definition of insanity'.

Be the change you want to see in the world.
