Note that you cannot change your life by trying to change your life; you cannot change your performance by trying to change your performance.
But you can change the picture-images or internal representation, you hold in your mind that represents your ingrained thinking. This will bring change in all the other areas of your life that are important to you.
Your beliefs represent conscious decision you have made in the past about yourself and what you expect and do not expect to accomplish. How you perform in life is largely a function of your deep-seated beliefs.
OF ALL YOUR BELIEFS, THE MOST IMPORTANT ARE YOUR CORE BELIEFS FOR THEY ARE ABSOLUTELY CRITICAL TO YOUR FUTURE.
The total accumulation of data involving everything that has ever happened to you in your life is referred to as your personal belief system, your reality, or the truth as you know, understand and accept to be. It serves as your frame of reference as you continue to experience new things in life and represents the total “programming” your mind has been subjected to, voluntarily or involuntarily, up to now.
The breakthrough comes when you realize that the belief system you now possess is generally unreliable, since it is based on information that is often inaccurate, insufficient, or irrational.
People acquire their beliefs from their prior experiences- or more correctly, from their interpretation of these prior experiences.
Therefore, any particular belief you may now hold is more of a subjective opinion than an objective fact. Only by the critical reassessment of long-standing beliefs can you change them and move ahead with your life. This necessarily involves doing some…deep, concentrated thinking.
You have what you’ve got by doing what you’ve been doing thinking in the particular manner you have become accustomed to.
If what you want the future to be different from what you’ve got in the present, you have to change what you’ve been doing!
There will always be impediments between what you want and what you’ve got.
Your attitude toward these temporary obstacles, rather than the obstacles themselves, will determine in the end whether you succeed or fail.
