Believing In Yourself Is Key To You Living Your Dream

To get what you want from life, especially your Dream, you have to believe in yourself.  You have to believe that you can do it, regardless of what it is that you want.

Believing in yourself is, as Jack Canfield stated, a choice.  While we could get into a conversation that our past, how our parents parented us, had an impact on us, there is no benefit in such a conversation.  To transform our life we have to take responsibility for our thoughts and beliefs, especially those we have about ourselves, about our past and self esteem.  It is our choice to continue to believe and think the way that we believe and think.

Given that what you think and even say is important, you need to be present to the words you put out into the world.  For example, in believing in yourself, you have to give up saying, “I can’t.” Saying or using “I can’t” will limit you, will cut off possibility, will cut off any possibility from your life. The work of watching your word is your total and complete responsibility.

Simply decide that you can or are able to do anything you want. Choose to believe that you are capable of doing what you want and begin to work towards it, take action. It is, as Canfield also stated, a matter of attitude.

Having others believe in me can be of help to me, as support for example.  However, it is not necessary for me to fully believe in myself.  What is important is what I believe, what I believe about myself and more specifically having the belief that I can do what I want.  This choice is mine.

Always Believe That Your Dream is Possible

Believing that something is possible is vital to achieving or creating it, to living your Dream.

Getting what you want is about initially having something as a possibility, a possibility to have, do or be.

We get what we expect, what we expect will happen.  As Canfield stated in the Success Principles, we often achieve exactly what we anticipate.

Therefore, it is very important to always have positive expectations in your mind, to expect that what you want will happen.

Visualization is a technique to assist you in creating a positive expectation that you will have or live into.  Doing these types of visualizations about the creating of your future I will write about soon.  

Having someone else believe in you, that you can achieve something, can also help.  Sometimes the support from another person can make the difference and help keep us on track with what it is that we want.

More on this later.

Be Clear About What You Want to Be in Life

Sometimes past programming has gotten in the way of me having what I want.   At times I have pursued interests that were not mine but others, seeking approval primarily and not that which I was out to obtain or experience. In my attempt to have the approval of another I tended to settle or sell out on what I really want to have, be or do.

I do deserve to have things in life the way that I want them to be.  It is my thinking that creates the space for me to think that I must settle, thinking that there are things that I can not have from life.

Becoming present to what I truly want is important.  As Canfield states, your wants are true expressions of your core values.

What also stops me at times is believing that I can not make a living at what I truly want to, have or be.  Become present to what you love, love to do, have and be, and then use your imagination to think about ways to make money doing what you love.  Allow your thoughts, your thought process, to uncover how you can make a living doing what you love.

To create balance in life your vision of what you want needs, in Canfield’s opinoin, to take into consideration the following areas or domains of a person’s life: work and career, finances, recreation and free time, health and fitness, relationships, personal goals and contribution to the larger community.

Create your vision, what it is that you want to have, be and do.  Once you decide on what it is you want and keep your mind on it constantly, the how will keep showing up.

Remember to never limit your vision or what you want.  Let it be as big as you want.  Believe that anything is possible.

Share your vision with another person who is positive and supportive.  Simply do not let others talk you out of your vision. Stay focused on what it is you want to have, be and do.

For me what I want is my Dream.

Be Clear Why You Are Here, Know Your Purpose in Life

According to Canfield, we are born with a purpose.  Knowing, acknowledging and honoring this purpose is very important to us as human beings, especially to becoming a success in life. What am I here to do? What is my life about, what is my purpose? What is my purpose for living?

Without a purpose life will be without direction.   Without a purpose I will simply wander and drift about in life, not fully living, achieving little if anything of any true value or meaning.  Without a purpose I will limit my possibility.

I need to decide upon, if not discover, my purpose in life and once gotten organize all of my activities to be in alignment with it. Everything that I do, according to Canfield, should be an expression of my life purpose.

My inner guidance system helps me in the process of living into my purpose.  My inner guidance lets me know when I am on purpose by the amount of joy that I experience. According to Canfield, the things in life that bring me joy are in definitely in alignment with my purpose.

Once you discover your purpose in life read it and practice becoming present to it each morning.  Becoming present to ones life purpose in the morning allows one the opportunity to bring into the day and stay focused on fulfilling ones purpose. Being present to my life purpose allows me to determine if my actions and behaviors are in alignment with my purpose.

One way to assist you in discovering your life purpose is through the process of meditation, quiet reflection.  Such a process allows you the opportunity to truly uncover that which is your driving force for life, your life purpose.

I believe that my purpose is to be of service to other individuals.  My purpose is to assist others in transforming their lives by altering the view that they have of themselves and life.  I also believe that my  music is a major part of my purpose.

Helping others to reduce and eliminate stress can help them to begin to transform their lives.  Relaxation music can provide this relief for a person to get his life back on track.

To Transform You have to Take 100% Responsibility for your Life

In the process of transforming my life I have taken on the reading and applying the work of Jack Canfield and his book, Success Principles.

As with anything, the principles for success will work if I work them. No one other than me can do that which is suggested of and for me to do. As I also know repetition is the key, the key to the implementation and realization of the principles. Suggestions get made, and sometimes I do as requested and then again, sometimes I resist. I surrender to that which I need to do to transform my life or I resist, not wanting to do what is necessarily for me to change or transform my life. Being patient but persistent is also key. Work the principles fully and completely and practice perseverance, never giving up, is crucial for me to be a success.

Chapter One – Take 100 % Responsibility For Your Life.

First, I must get that I am not entitled to anything, anything in life. There is no one that is responsible for making sure that my life is fulfilled, exciting, and that I am happy. Nothing is suppose to or should happen in my life.

There is only one person who is responsible for the quality of my life and that person is me, me alone. I need to, if I am to transform my life, take 100 % responsibility for my life and all of the experiences that I have had and will have in the future. This amounts to me taking responsibility for my achievements, relationships, state of my health, income, feelings, in short, everything that I experience.

However, much of my life has been about not taking responsibility, of blaming others for my situation and circumstances, what is happening in my life. I sometimes have a tendency to blame something or someone outside of myself for the parts of my life that I do not like. It is time to stop looking outside of myself for the reason and answers to why I have not had or created the life that I have wanted. It is time to look to myself.

Taking responsibility, full responsibility, means that I have to acknowledge that I have created everything in my life, everything that has and will happen to me. I am the cause of all my experiences, I am the cause in the matter. To take full and complete responsibility for my experiences I will have to give up blaming and complaining. It is only by getting that I truly created my current conditions that I can recreate my life, the nature of the experiences that I have. Taking full responsibility will allow me to assume my power to recreate my life anew.

Important to this process is to give up all of my excuses, of being a victim, all the reasons why I can not do, of blaming outside circumstances and situations, thereby allowing me to assume and acknowledge my power to redirect and recreate my life. I have always had this power. I am always creating my life regardless of whether or not I acknowledge it or not. I am in truth always responsible. It is only through choice that I make a conscious effort or decision to take and assume, to acknowlege, 100% responsibility for all of my experiences, for everything that does or does not happen to me.

When something does not happen the way that I wanted it to happen, I need to ask myself how I created it, what was I thinking, what were or are my beliefs, or what did I do or not do to create the situation. Just as important I need to become present to what I need to do differently to create a different result, to get the result that I want.

According to Canfield, the event that happens plus my response to the event gets me the outcome, what I experience. If I do not like the outcome I can do one of two things. I can blame the event. Or I can focus on and assume that the cause is my response to the event. I can simply accept the event and focus my efforts on changing my responses to the event. I can change my thinking or my actions with respect to the event. Much of my life has been about blaming the event whether it be a person, place or thing. The key to transforming my life will be to stay present to my response to the events that happen.

What I have control over is the thoughts that I have, the actions that I take and the images that I visualize in my mind. How I use these three things will determine my experiences, my responses to events in my life. The key to having different outcomes or experiences is to change one or all of them, change my thoughts to more positive ones, change what I dream about, my habits, what I read, my friends and how I talk or communicate. If I keep doing what I have done I get what I have always gotten. If I want different experiences or outcomes then I must do differently.

Suggestions:

1. Examine my thoughts and beliefs. Does my thinking stop or hinder me? Change the ones that are barriers to my life.

2. Examine my actions. Do my actions get me what I want? Change my behavior to be in alignment with what I want.

3. Examine how I communicate to others and myself.

4. Give up blaming others, people, places and things completely for my experiences.

5. Give up complaining completely about my experiences.

6. Pay attention to the “yellow alerts.” Pay attention to my experiences that are alerting me to the fact that I need to respond differently to an event. The “yellow alerts” can be internal or external. Pay attention to the feedback that will be given to me.

7. Be aware of or conscious of my thoughts and actions.

NLP and Hypnosis to Transform the Past and Create the Possibility of a Future

In addition to my work as a musician and on the website, I am also a counselor working in a drug rehab program in Miami.  I have been doing this type of work for well over 10 years now and counseling in general for about 28 years.  While my education was traditional in nature, much of the counseling trainings after graduation was not.  

After graduating with my doctoral degree from Boston University I became acquainted with and trained in both NLP and hypnosis.  Besides utilizing these modalities in my counseling work, I have also had the opportunity over the past eight months to train other counselors at the company that I currently work for.

The work that I would like to share now has to do with what I refer to as “The List” and “The Future Self.”  While these two transformation patterns can be done in individual session, I have recently conducted both of them, “The List” and “The Future Self”, in a group setting, with approximately 15 clients present.  These two patterns can be very powerful for helping a person change the direction of their life.

The first suggestion I gave to clients was to take out two sheets of clean paper.  On one page I instructed them to write down five events from their past that they wish would not have happened.  This was “The List”.  On the second sheet of paper I asked the clients to write down how they would like their life to be in one year and to be as detailed as possible.  This was “The Future Self”.  The first instruction took about ten minutes to complete while the second took a little longer, about 20 minutes as it was to be more descriptive in nature.

After the clients completed the assignments I ask them to place “The List” on their left as they sat at the table and “The Future Self” on their right.  I explained the instructions were for right handed people and if you were left handed to simply reverse the instructions, to place “The Future Self” on the left side and “The List” on the right side.

Once the completed sheets of paper were placed in their appropriate places I asked the clients to let themselves begin to relax.  At this point I did a simple hypnotic induction, designed to help them to relax and become ready for the imagery work to follow.  As the clients started to relax I asked to close their eyes and continue to relax.   

As the clients became relaxed I asked them to imagine the sheet of paper that had “The List” on it.  As they became aware of “The List” I began a process of asking them to move “The List” slowly away from them, first five feet, then ten feet,  in front of them.  Eventually I asked them to move “The List” to their left, 45 degrees and then to move it out another ten feet and then again, another ten feet.  Next I simply asked them to see “The List” about 40 feet to their left and to notice how they felt.

Next I asked them to become aware of “The Future Self” and this time to notice what they wanted for their life to be about ten feet away from them and to their right.  Once they became aware of the image of “The Future Self” I asked them to slowly move that image in closer, five feet closer and then up next to their face.  At this point I asked them to step into the picture of “The Future Self.” to become it and again, to notice how they were feeling.

After a few minutes of letting the clients experience “The Future Self” from an associated perspective, I began to process the client’s experience and asked them to talk about what had happened and also, how they felt.  With the dissociation and association process, the clients reported that they felt better when “The List” moved away from them and even better still when they became associated to “The Future Self”.

One point should be noted with this type of process.  In this type of process you do not usually want “The List” to totally disappear.  There is something that the client can still learn from the events.  While there may be some events that have no redeeming quality to them, such as some examples of severe trauma, most will still have a lesson in them for the client to stay aware of.

The primary purpose of the exercise for the clients is to assist them in letting go of and moving past the events of the past, events that for some remain as barriers to growth, and also to begin to create a future that truly makes them happy.  For some the exercise will be a huge motivator but usually is something that requires continued work on the part of the client to actually bring them both fully into their life.

More on this later.
