Lasting success is dependent on 3 critical elements, that are as simple as abc:
Of these three elements, only Action originates from the conscious mind – Belief and Commitment both originate in the subconscious mind and the ability to take action effectively and persistently depends on those other two elements.
As I explained in part 1, Motivation stimulates the conscious mind and its effects are only temporary so when the euphoria wears off and the old habits take over, it makes you feel even more of a failure because your life still hasn’t changed even after this latest ‘secret’ to success.
Transformation occurs when you reprogram your subconscious mind to replace negative self-sabotaging beliefs with positive supporting beliefs that propel you forward to success.
Without transformation you continue to suffer the symptoms of your negative beliefs such as procrastination, lack of focus, discouragement, causing you to give up on your goals when the inevitable challenges crop up.
Self-help experts agree that it is our self-doubt, lack of self-esteem, lack of confidence and so on that get in the way of our success, yet few have a method of accessing those subconscious beliefs and changing them.
The method we teach in the Success Equation is a 100% effective method of reprogramming your beliefs, and it is one you can learn to use yourself.
The added advantage of the Success Equation method is that it not only reprograms your existing beliefs, it also provides immunity against the creation of new negative beliefs, and instills the positive mindset you need to carry out empowered actions to achieve your goals.
Identify & Change Your Beliefs
So your first job is to identify the negative beliefs that are holding you back. You can do this one by one, identifying them as they arise and then deal with them on the spot. The other way is to tackle them all at once. Think back over your life history and recall situations that left you with bad memories – incidents you associate with unpleasant emotions when you felt humiliated, stupid or embarrassed. It’s best to write them down so you can express them fully and review them one by one.
When we work with our mentoring clients we use both approaches. We start by getting you to write your life story, concentrating on the memories that have emotional significance for you. Then we work through each situation using Awareness and the Power of Neutrality to look at different interpretations of the same situation. This not only gives a positive view of that situation but we also identify positive qualities that you have overlooked. The result is that we replace the negative interpretation with a positive one, turning your negative belief into a positive one, reinforced by the new positive qualities we’ve uncovered.
Any issues that haven’t been uncovered in your life story are addressed as we work with you, week by week, over the course of the mentoring program.
Hey presto, the outcome is a new ‘empowered you’ with self-confidence, high self-esteem and self-belief that is not only sustainable but continually reinforced by using the same techniques of Awareness and the Power of Neutrality in your day to day life.
