Choices and Beliefs – A Day of Reckoning
Well, today is the day of reckoning for everyone making a choice about the future of the United States. This is the day that we find out about the beliefs of people across the country – it’s called a Presidential Election. It is all about the beliefs and emotions of each individual and the choices they make about the future.
There may be some people who actually believe that logic is the key to the vote. Well, Not So Fast My Friend! There is a fact that you are missing – All Decisions Are 100 % Emotional and we use logic to justify our choice. Sales people know this fact and the successful ones use this to get more positive votes in the form of sales. Yet, to my surprise most people do not understand this facet of how choices are made.
Choices are made not using logical explanations. Choices are made based upon our Emotional Beliefs. Beliefs are the underpinnings of everything we do. Our choices are heavily impacted by our beliefs and our belief structure. In fact, our beliefs are the starting point for everything we do or don’t do!
Beliefs are the driving creator of our attitude about life and everything our life touches. Then our attitudes affect the quality of our behavior regarding what we are doing. This behavior drives or creates our results or performance. Then we use the results or performance to validate our beliefs. An ongoing circle is created and continues until “we” or “you” change something within.
Now for the hard part – for any change to be permanent we have to change an inner belief. This fact is exposed by a number of research projects on performance and the personal development gurus have uncovered this by calling them – self limiting beliefs. Yes, self limiting beliefs are the cause of poor or erratic performance.
There are repeated exercises to change results or performance through the use of behavioral training or attitude adjustments. While these techniques can create some change in results – it is usually just a temporary solution. Once the belief is challenged, the belief overrides the process and you are back to the previous result or performance.
So, how do you change beliefs to get better or faster results? You must first work on the subconscious belief structure that you have. There are methods and techniques that can uncover and verify their importance – but you must know how to use them properly. Robin Graham teaches one such method that ensures that each individual can take charge of their lives but eliminating unwanted or old scripts that were planted by others who influenced our developmental years.
