‘If you think you can, or you think you can’t do a thing, you’re probably right.’ Henry Ford.
Why is it some people grow up with a strong sense of self belief and others seem to set themselves up to fail time and time again? Our beliefs create our reality, whether they are positive or negative. We are not born with any beliefs, we develop them during the first six or seven years of our lives and they then become subconscious and continue to affect our choices, our expectations, our reality throughout our lives.
Our beliefs are created by the influential adults around us during those early years, some may be good, but sadly most people develop more negative beliefs such as ‘I’m not good enough’, ‘I don’t deserve…’, ‘I need to be perfect’, ‘It’s a dangerous world’, ‘I need to please people’, ‘I’ll fail’, ‘People don’t care’ etc… Eventually our own inner voice takes over from the voices of the adults who taught us these damaging beliefs and they become self-fulfilling prophecies as we unconsciously set out to prove to ourselves that they are true.
By becoming aware of your inner voice, stopping the negative self-talk, and telling yourself you can instead of telling yourself you can’t, you can create new positive beliefs and begin to change your life. By using Hypnotherapy, NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) and EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) to reprogramme your mind, you can make these changes at a deep level, much more quickly and much more easily.
