The Key to Being Truly Free May Shock You…
Especially When You Find Out Your Beliefs DON’T Matter*
WARNING: *This is an advanced lesson
In the lands of personal and professional development, you will, at some point, run into the term “stinkin’ thinkin’ ”. It is a term coined by the legendary motivational speaker and success coach, Zig Ziglar.
Another famous quote by Henry Ford, the founder of the Ford Motor Company, is:
“Whether you think you can, or whether you think you can’t, you’re right.”
Both of these men had extraordinarily successful lives in business, but we have no way of measuring the amount of inner peace they actually had.
When it comes to happiness and inner peace, it’s different.
As a belief expert, I work with people to help them see themselves and the world differently than the ways that have not worked for them in the past.
This helps you overcome feelings of low self-esteem, low self-confidence, anxiety, sadness, and much more.
What I do is different than most other modalities in this field in that we don’t try to replace negative and limiting beliefs with positive ones.
(Granted, doing affirmations and working with positive beliefs WILL create results (when done properly), but it usually is not synonymous with being happier and more at peace.)
Instead, we would simply alter your relationship with your beliefs.
This is where it gets weird.
You see, having beliefs themselves is the problem.
What you believe limits you… period.
If you believe something, or don’t believe something, you have bought into an illusion about something.
You have bought into an illusion.
Real freedom lies not in what you believe, but in the absence of resistance to what you believe.
(And what others believe for that matter.)
It is more important to evaluate whether you are having a ‘charged’ relationship with the content, than the content itself.
As thoughts do become things, you can use your mind to create desired results in the physical world. This means you can visualize and imagine what you want and attract it to you.
But this has nothing to do with gaining happiness and inner peace.
For that, it is your relationship with the thoughts that float through your mind that is the key, not the thoughts themselves.
To be Truly free.
When you get to the point where you are no longer judging the thoughts that float through your mind, you are free… truly free.
This means you are able to face any situation and not judge it, even if you don’t like it.
Only then can you be in total service.
Unless you develop this skill (and it is a skill that can be learned), you will judge things, people, and circumstances.
When you judge, you can’t be of service to whom or what you are judging.
When you can’t be of service, you suffer.
When you suffer, you aren’t happy.
The key to being truly free is to resolve any irregular relationships with thoughts of your past.
You literally need to “love them [your thoughts] to death”, as my friend, mentor and anxiety resolution specialist, Ben Sweet, taught me.
When you stop the need to believe in something, you take control of your life.
Simple, not easy.
So, replacing negative beliefs with positive ones is not the answer to sustained happiness and inner peace.
Admittedly, having positive beliefs can help you overcome inertia and get things done, help you create more success and the like, but won’t bring you happiness and inner peace.
For that, the answer is to resolve any charged relationship with any and all beliefs, be they ‘negative’ or ‘positive’. That gives you the inner freedom you seek.
I’m not saying this is easy, it’s not.
But, it is fairly simple, and it offers you a totally different way to be in this world.
For those that take on the task, happiness and inner peace can be yours.
