Positive thinking is good - but only the beginning
Positive thinking is a good foundation for success. But this attitude alone is not enough to convince oneself and others. Often deeply rooted beliefs from the past boycotted all efforts.
We usually do not even know what beliefs we carry around with us all our lives. To be successful, it is imperative to work on your personal attitude and to change negative beliefs through deep psychological processes.
Actions follow thoughts
To move things, we like to change our actions. Unfortunately often without the desired success. Why is that?
Simply because our words and our actions follow our thoughts. If, therefore, our conviction is a different one - and even unconsciously because of our unknown beliefs - we do not achieve our goal.
Schuster stay with your last
Whoever in his childhood often heard from the grandmother the saying "cobbler stay at your groin!" And has experienced that also the parents drive well according to this motto, unconsciously directs their own focus on it.
Failures Attempts to try something new (profession, leave, etc.) confirm this old belief, even though you are not aware of it yourself.
The development of one's own potential is blocked and restricts the possibilities. All efforts to develop further do not lead to the hoped-for goal. Our inner programs work perfectly - whether we want or not.
We unconsciously do things that slow us down. Even so much ambition will not help to be more successful. The most important lever to resolve these blockades is to work emotionally on us. Refraining allows us to save our past.
Working on beliefs
When we work on our beliefs and change them, our feelings also change. If our stomach finally honestly says yes, actions are almost automatic and effortless and our result often improves dramatically.
Through the new Mindset with affirming beliefs, we can achieve a completely new status. In all respects and all spheres of life we achieve a much higher success level.
Change beliefs in four steps
In order to change beliefs, one must
- first understand what beliefs are.
- to become self-aware, and what beliefs one has.
- Rephrase beliefs (using NLP techniques). You yourself can have a decisive influence on this process by
- focus differently and search for references.
Self-propelled by clear goals
To motivate oneself again and again is the decisive factor for achieving the goal. Without self-motivation, high-performance athletes would never be successful.
A high level of self-motivation helps to tackle problems every day with optimism and enthusiasm. Three questions help to find out whether our actions are also suited to our goals:
- What am I doing this for? This question answers the motivation behind the motivation. If we make the reasons again and again, we can quickly motivate ourselves again. Before a difficult negotiation, we could say to ourselves: "If I win the customer, I'm sure the salary increase will be secure and my promotion is within reach." The background behind any action is ultimately to satisfy our needs.
- Do I really want that? We can only motivate ourselves permanently if we do something out of a real, deep need. Otherwise, our subconscious mind resists and whispers to us all sorts of reasons: "there is still time tomorrow" or "others can do that much better than me anyway." Strategies help to reconcile our needs with the goal.
- Can I do this? Only if we can answer this question with "yes", we are also able to motivate ourselves in the long term. An important factor in self-motivation is self-efficacy. This means having faith in oneself and approaching a task with optimism: "Yes, I dare. I will definitely do it. "
- Hearted startup: The most difficult thing is the start-up, because here you are already taking the first step. We think about the pros and cons, without changing big. However, even if initially little is noticeable, the change often occurs more quickly than we think.
Check inside attitude and beliefs
The attitude is an important factor. If we are honest with ourselves, then we have something like an "inner voice" that has often been decided long before we make a conscious decision.
We all have a past. It is important not only to carry them around with you, but also to not deny or even suppress them.
Doctrines as helpers instead of self-sabotage
It is important to reform the existing beliefs so that they help you in the future instead of preventing them from doing what you really want to do.
So get started and take the first step. There is always a next door through which one can go. When you are ready, then some other things almost work out by themselves.
