Changing Core Beliefs. http://gregorymcguire.com/2011/07/22/4-steps-to-changing-core-beliefs/
Are you looking at changing your core beliefs? Why do you believe what you do? Are your core beliefs working for you? If not, maybe it's time for a change.
No, I'm not talking about religious or political belief systems, but the more subtle ones that have an even greater impact on your happiness.
How you view yourself and the world, those around you, and everything in between controls you. If you haven't had the success you want in any given area of your life, your beliefs may be to blame.
To change your reality, you have to first accept the fact that you are the one who created it. You need to stop blaming your parents, your job, or your environment. It's not the economy's fault. Own up to it. Stop whimpering like a little girl.
The only alternative to owning up to your creation is to be a victim. Victims are powerless to change their situation. Not that this is inherently so, but their belief systems tell them that's the case, so they don't even try. They're content to wallow in their misery, blaming everybody and everything for their woes.
Taking responsibility for your situation means being proactive. If you're not where you want to be, you ask yourself what you've done wrong, and you set out to do things differently. If your belief systems hold you back, you change them.
Your current reality was created by your actions. I've seen so many people deny this truth, and all I can do is shake my head and feel sorry for them.
Since your reality is created by your actions, it stands to reason that, to change our reality, we have to change our actions. This, however, is easier said than done, especially long term, and if your belief systems aren't in sync with your actions.
Do you ever notice how many more people are in the gym in January than, say July? Ever wonder why that is?
People get motivated to lose weight. They want that perfect body they've been dreaming about, and they figure it's time to do something about it. They hit the gym.
Somewhere around mid-March, however, most of them lose their drive. They seldom make it to the gym anymore, and forget about having that body. They suddenly are content with their flab. Why?
Because our actions are supported by our thoughts. If they're not, we won't perform those actions for very long. Motivation and enthusiasm are often fleeting, and with them go the thoughts that accompany them.
Your thoughts drive your actions. So, to change your actions permanently, you must change your thoughts.
