How to Create Change
How can you proactively work with the most powerful computer in the world, your own self, to create top performance and achieve the results you want?
The way to do this is to work with your programs, the filters that determine your experience. What sort of movie is being projected onto the screen of your mind? As a consultant and coach, the most effective way to create change is to work with the person’s inner game and help them reprogram their software to create the results they want. If you are not getting what you want, you have some reprogramming to do in your own software.
Today, I am going to show you how to start working with your unconscious programming so you can change the results you are getting. The challenge, though, is that what is creating our results is in our unconscious, outside of our conscious awareness, so we have to learn ways to detect, find, and flush out what is there. We have to become good detectives to find what is happening within our inner programming that is creating the results we don’t want.
In our unconscious, we have a number of different programs that are filtering the information and energy coming in through our five senses, creating our experience. These programs, which create our experience on the movie screen of our mind, are creating our behaviour, and our behaviour determines our results. One of those programs that is very easy to work with is our belief system. As we know, what we believe is what we achieve.
Three Steps to Change a Belief System
Step 1. Get clear on what it is you want to achieve in your life or in your specific area or context; e.g. sport, relationships, career, etc.
Step 2. Write down all limiting or negative beliefs within the unconscious in that specific context and get them on paper; e.g. Life is unfair.
Step 3. Reprogram yourself and install into the hard drive affirming, positive beliefs that are going to support you in creating the results you want in your life or that specific context; e.g. the flow of all good things comes to me easily and effortlessly.
Affirmations are a good way to start, but they take a long time to reprogram the unconscious mind. Below is an exercise on how you can find and change your beliefs in any area of your life quickly and effectively. The results are phenomenal because you are working directly with your hard drive and its programming to create different results.
Many people have completely turned their lives around, created the ideal partner, doubled their income, achieved their sporting goals, increased their performance – and I can speak to this from my own personal experience, through water-skiing, being in sales for Australia’s number one personal development company, and running my own business. Working with my programming and upgrading it has massively supported me to achieve my goals in life.
Changing Your Beliefs
Step 1: What Do You Really Want?
Deepak Chopra teaches that it is important to take the time to sit in a quiet place, be still, and reflect on what you really want. In his training, ‘The Soul of Leadership,’ which I attended at the Kellogg School of Management, Northwestern University, Chicago, he teaches that great leaders ask great questions of themselves and others.
Ask yourself this question: “What do I really want?” It might be in a specific area of your life, or in general. What area of your life is not working as well as you would like it to? Take the time to reflect on what you really want to create in this area of your life. Pay attention to this question, “What do I really want?” and keep repeating it softly inside. Watch what arises from within, be present with what you become aware of, and then ask the question again. Keep repeating this until you are clear on what you want.
You can also ask yourself the following questions:
- If you had all the time and money in the world, what would you do?
- If you knew you couldn’t fail, what would you do?
- If you had 12 months left to live, what would you do?
When this is clear, write it down.
Step 2: Finding Your Limiting Beliefs
What is it that prevents you from having what you want above? Why is that so? Why else? Write this down.
What excuses do you have that will stop you from getting what you want? Write them down.
What do you want but can’t seem to achieve or do? Why is that? Write it down.
What do you want, but there is a lot of resistance or excuses stopping you from doing it? Write them down.
What patterns or results are you getting in your life, sport, career, etc., that you don’t like, but they keep showing up, stopping you from getting what you want above? Write them down.
Looking at the list of patterns or results, choose one of the biggest reasons, the one that you think drives or creates the others in the list. Then ask yourself the following questions:
- For what purpose do you think you are creating that result? Why else? Write down your answers. Keep asking until you are empty, then read back what you have written down and ask the question again, writing down what comes up until you are empty.
- What do you believe about that specific result you are creating? What else do you believe? Write them down.
- What negative automatic thoughts come up inside regarding this result? Write them down.
- What things do you say to yourself that are negative or disempowering in regard to this result? Write them down.
