[5 Simple Steps to Unshakeable Self-Confidence Series] Article #9 ~ How to Create Lasting Change
This series is showing you how to create a new, unwavering belief in yourself.
That way, you’ll pursue your own vision of happiness, and not waste time doing things because other people say you should. You’ll know what you want and go after it.
We got that ball rolling in Steps 1 and 2, when I had you determine the thought, belief or story that was keeping you from seeing the results you want, and then replace that thought with one based in Universal Law.
In Step 3 and 4, you’re going to start creating real change in your life, but in order to do so you have to understand the foundation for why your efforts can be so successful.
How Beliefs Are Formed
Your subconscious does its best to keep you right where you are. It’s designed to carry out programming, and it does that job very well.
Who controls the programming of your subconscious?
You do, with your ability to accept or reject an idea.
However, you don’t develop that ability to reason until about age seven. Until then, without realizing it, you simply absorb the beliefs of your guardians, teachers, and others around you.
By the time you become aware of your consciousness, you are already seeing through a filter of your programming, and you don’t even realize it.
The problem is compounded because your programming creates your reality, the situations and circumstances in your life, and then you react to those circumstances in the way that you’re programmed to do, and, thus, perpetuate the cycle.
In addition, since you’re trained to experience life with your five senses, you likely perceive that everything that is happening around you is not only real, but fixed.
You probably say things like, “This is the way that it is. This is my experience. This is reality,” when, in fact, it’s just what you’re creating in the moment.
Are you beginning to understand why you might be stuck?
How, try as you might, on certain issues, you just haven’t been able to make any headway?
Your New Reality
Now, the good news is that you can change your subconscious through experience.
If you give yourself a different experience, by taking action, your subconscious has to accept it, and then you form a new belief and start to create a new reality from there.
Your subconscious starts generating results based on your new belief, and your self-confidence grows.
For example, I had a student who literally changed her life by flying first-class to Europe. That experience emboldened her so much, that over the next two years, she transitioned out of her old business, which she’d built because it was “safe,” and created a new business of her dreams.
She is now so much more confident, that she’s hardly recognizable to family and old friends.
Her experience is far from unique.
As you grow in confidence, you start taking bigger actions, which create bigger and better results.
And before you know it, you’re trusting yourself implicitly, and your life has truly changed.
Hello, David Neagle:
This article, by David Neagle, I have just read, on the Internet, makes me believe that I CAN CHANGE MYSELF WITH YOUR HELP. I have been trying to effect a change on my life so long but could not. I am asking David Neagle to help me realize this my dream. Please, David. Tell me where to go. What to do. Books to read. Or whatever you can do to help me realize my dream. I would be extraordinarily grateful to you. For one thing, I have put down your book ” The Millions Within” as a “must buy” for me, but I still need more help from you.
Have you any other help for me….?
Thank you so much….!!!
Thank you Frankie, you absolutely can change yourself. In order to realize that is a part of you begin giving yourself the experience of success. You have to live your life as if you already have it. It’s here now. Live that each and every day and begin to feel yourself shift into the person you want to be. To assist in that, make it a point to study every day. My library is stocked with powerful texts; titles like God Works Through Faith by Robert Russell, Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill, The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace Wattles, Psycho Cybernetics by Maxwell Maltz, and The Power of Your Supermind by Vernon Howard to name a few. Study every day and put those principles into action each and every day. Don’t waver, and you will get there. Believe in my belief that you will change your life. Thanks for the post and be sure to check back and report on your progress.
