Disrupting Current Beliefs

Why is it so difficult to form a new habit? No lasting change in behavior occurs unless you disrupt some of your current beliefs. Think about that!

No, don’t just read on yet…think about how hard it is to disrupt any of your current beliefs. People can be pretty stubborn about their beliefs. Belief implies acceptance. Therefore, if you decide to change anything about your behavior, and you are starting from a position of strong acceptance of the belief that drives the behavior, you must un-accept what you currently believe before you can even get started.

Why in the world would anyone bother to deem something they currently believe unacceptable? Two big reasons: frustration and failure.

Frustration and failure can be used as “candidates-for-beliefs-that-might-need-to-be-disrupted” tracking devices. When you sense frustration or fail at something….STOP AND THINK ABOUT IT CAREFULLY! Try to pinpoint the belief that supported your decision to do whatever you did that derailed your positive feelings and/or success. If you can pinpoint the culprit…disrupt the belief and replace it with a new and improved belief.

Good luck and don’t be afraid to admit there may be a few things you need to change!
