A more positive future, a happier life, a body that's in better shape or a wealthier mind begins by a winning belief system. Beliefs shape our destiny and more supporting they are, more we are able to achieve our goals.
Positive beliefs, like "I can do it" "I have tremendous resources to succeed" have been formed through experiences, especially during your childhood. In same way, negative or limiting beliefs, like "I'm worthless" "I don't deserve to succeed" "I don't have permission to succeed" have been formed at an early age.
To succeed at any endeavor, you need to develop and maintain five powerful beliefs.
You need to literally transform these limiting beliefs and sure you can, because as they have been learned (through experiences, ideas…), they can be unlearned, restructured and changed.
Ask, ponder and integrate answers to five following key questions. For each statement, rate your degree of belief from 1 to 5.
1. Do I deserve it? This has to do with you. This has to do with your feelings of self-worth. "Do I deserve, do I have permission to be a millionaire?" "Do I have permission to remain centered, instead of stressed and depressed" Feel this question in your entire body. This is an essential step that your whole body and mind need to accept and integrate. 2. Am I capable of doing it? This next part concerns your plan that you've outlined to achieve your goal. "Am I capable of taking appropriate action, following different steps I set up to succeed?" Once you've answered that question affirmatively, integrate this in your body and mind. You don't only need to know it cognitively but also emotionally. Your body is not just made up of a cognitive mind, but with emotions and feelings and whole system needs to accept it.
3. Is it appropriate for me? This has to do with actions and behaviors themselves. "Are actions and behaviors I need to take appropriate?" This is an important question. The actions and behaviors need to be ethical, practical and down-to-earth. Evaluate and decide if your actions are appropriate. If not, change them. You don't only want to set goals in your life, you want to become congruent and live in harmony with your core values.
