Change Beliefs PART ELEVEN

Your results are based on your habits.
Can a frequently practiced habit be eliminated?
Yes, and here’s how.

Without changing at least one core belief it is highly likely nothing you do will change a habit.
Habits are notoriously tough to break.

Will power is useful, but like all New Year’s resolutions, it is difficult to maintain.

Beliefs become habits and habits control virtually everything you do on a daily basis.

Imagine you are determined to change a habit.
What is probably going to happen?
An excuse will pop up to keep you from stopping what you have conditioned yourself to do.
That’s the way your brain prefers it.
You have trained yourself too well.

How can you motivate yourself to beat a habit that is preventing you from becoming an even more successful you?

Given a habit is underpinned by one or more beliefs it is imperative to tackle your belief system whole heartedly.
No point in messing about, it requires dedication, diligence and hard work.
And it can be done.

Start by focusing on what you do, and why you are doing it.
In this part let’s take a look at the first five considerations:
1. Why do you want to change?
2. Understand the scale of the problem
3. Who can you choose as a role model?
4. Consider whether you believe you deserve to succeed
5. Imagine the benefits!

Let’s take a closer look.

1. Why do you want to change?
This must be compelling or resistance will quickly occur.
It must be something for you alone, not just for the benefit of others.
It’s your belief, and basically only you can alter it.
Unless there is a significant reason behind changing the belief will power will fail.

2. Understand the scale of the problem
Here you need to determine how a belief plays out in your life.
Get a feel for what it is costing you, and ask yourself why you are prepared to put up with it when there is no need to do so.
Get an idea of how big the scale of the problem actually is.
You always have choice.

3. Who can you choose as a role model?
Most of your beliefs were formed when you were quite young.
It is likely that your family circle has influenced you into developing certain beliefs.
Perhaps it’s time to look outside your immediate circle to gain inspiration elsewhere.

Look around and decide who you can choose to study either directly or indirectly.
Act as if you are this other person when the old belief crops up.

4. Consider whether you believe you deserve to succeed
Recognise the futility of making yet another resolution, and plan what you will actually do put into place.
Once you understand the consequences of a belief, and you accept that it is something only you can fully control, why not go ahead and plan how you will move forward?

Think creatively, discover what is possible, visualise yourself succeeding, and apply yourself – let nothing interfere.
Create a trigger you will use when you are tempted to fall back into your old ways.
Smile when you resist it!

5. Imagine the benefits!
Remember, at every bifurcation point there is the possibility of bringing a form of chaos to a resolution point.
You are at a tipping point and you can transition, almost abruptly to a new state.
Imagine how impressed with yourself you will be!

Remember, you have many faces, so put them to use and knock over those beliefs that have surely served their purpose.
