“It’s not the events of our lives that shape us, but our beliefs as to what those events mean.”
– Tony Robbins
Beliefs help define truths and they start with your thoughts. The truth comes through experiences (your reality). How do you develop beliefs and where do they come from?
- Family of Origin – Parents | Close Family members may pass down beliefs you then adopt at an early age
- Stories or truths created on your own
- Social circles you associate with
- Religious affiliations
- Profession or Education institutions
So what if you want to change some of your truths you wish to no longer experience? How to tackle step by step below:
1. WRITE DOWN YOUR LIMITING BELIEFS
Acknowledge and write down all the thoughts and truths you feel are holding you back from what it is you desire.
2. PICK ONE BELIEF TO CHANGE
Focus only on one belief you’d like to change. For example,
Belief: “My life is not as good as _______”.
Comparing yourself to someone else is limiting. There is only one of you on this entire planet and to embrace your value, unique journey would be the NEW belief to work on.
3. WRITE YOUR NEW BELIEF DOWN
Commit for the next 2 weeks, setting it as your new intention, meditating and repeating:
“My life is amazing and wonderful, and I have ______, _______, ______ to show me”
“I am so grateful my life provides _______ , I honor and love _______ gifts/talents about me that are unique.”
4. OUT WITH THE OLD – IN WITH THE NEW
Create a ritual to let go of your old belief and choose to adopt the new one. Write down on one side of a post it note the OLD belief and on the other side write down the NEW belief.. Burn it, bury it, or tear it up… however you choose to let it go is totally up to you. The goal is to let the limiting belief go and to acknowledge that it no longer serves you.
5. SEE YOUR REALITY SHIFT
Look for the new truth carefully by visualizing what it would look like. It may feel fake or inauthentic at first and your limiting belief will want to stay part of your reality. Pinpoint the new evidence in your reality as you shift to your new belief.
6. WRITE DOWN YOUR INTERNAL DIALOGUE
Be conscious of how thoughts run the internal conversation you have with yourself and begin to replace words\phrases with the following ones below:
|Failures are lessons to help me grow||I am honoring my inner self by____||I trust my new truth||I AM______||I will______|
|I know______||I choose to____||I am Enough||I can _____||Change comes easy to me|
|Life is a process||I am capable of______||I believe _____||I am grateful for_______||Support is all around|
7. REPEAT – NEXT BELIEF TO TACKLE
