Your beliefs create your reality.
That s right. Ponder this for a
moment. If you do not believe some-
thing is possible, you will not even
Perhaps you are offered a promotion,
but your belief is: "I don t deserve this;
or I am not good enough, or my friends
will be jealous, or my boyfriend will
feel insecure and dump me." With
beliefs like these, you may self-sabotage
your intention without realising it.
Power of the subconscious mind
and subconscious programmes
Most of your beliefs are subconscious
and outside of your awareness. These
beliefs come from subconscious pro-
grammes buried deep inside. And these
programmes run automatically at the
push of a button.
If you have subconscious pro-
grammes such as fear, procrastination,
stress, impossibility, feeling hopeless,
sad, or other negative feelings and
behaviours, these programmes can cre-
ate self-sabotage and derail your goals.
Let s look at how you can begin to
shift those programmes.
Inner resources are vital to help you
reach your goal.
Examples of resources are: confi-
dence, motivation, self-esteem, calm,
focus, concentration, courage, joy, clar-
ity, patience, perseverance and self love.
Inner resources can overcome self-
sabotaging subconscious programmes.
You already have all the resources
you need inside of you, right now, to
reach your goal. The potential is within
you. But sometimes those resources
get lost, buried, or seem impossible to
To identify which resources you need,
look back at your journal which you
would have started from part one of
Read over any thoughts, ideas and
beliefs that seem limiting, restrictive,
or have a sense of impossibility. Take
note of any ideas you have about why
your goal cannot happen. Then high-

Get the feelings
Review your beliefs and thoughts in
your journal. Get the negative feelings
beneath the thoughts about your goal.
These unpleasant feelings are related
to the subconscious programmes
that are stopping you.

What is an anchor? You may be
familiar with the term "trigger."
Perhaps you recall a time some-
body made a simple comment,
and you immediately shifted from
peace and calm to anger. You
instantly changed your state.
Anchors are very powerful. They
trigger "states" (feelings, or behav-
iours) that happen automatically.
When you are in a state of excel-
lence (full of courage, confidence,
joy, energy, motivation, calm and
organised) you can do anything!
When you are in a state of fear,
sadness, depression, loss, confu-
sion, anger, nothing seems possi-
ble. You are blocked and may even
create self-sabotage behaviours.
But you can shift that.
An anchor uses all of the senses
(seeing, hearing, feeling, taste,
smell) to trigger a specific state.
Everyone has the ability to see,
hear, feel, even taste and smell, in
their imagination. But most people
rely on only one or two of these
"channels." To be continued....
