Our beliefs and identity are a collection of our environment, culture, media and all the words our parents, teachers, peers and friends have spoken to us from the time of our birth to the present moment. Our internal filter through which we see and understand the world is just an assembly of what we’ve heard, been told, read and received through our subconscious mind. If the words that have influenced us have always reflected negativity, that ‘you are not good enough’, then our subconscious mind will have been trained to find the evidence to reinforce that belief. Then subconsciously you will run that programme, just like a computer has no choice to run the programme it has been given. However, you can learn to change this by changing the words you use from negative language to a language of positivity, and with practice, you’ll change your mindset enabling you to deliver completely new results.

From today, become aware of the language you use. Delete phrases such as “I hate this” “I’ve never been good at” and “that’s impossible” and “I can’t” and replace them with “I can” and “I will” “I enjoy a challenge” “I get better as things get harder.” Self-awareness of the language you use is key to overcoming the limitations you place on yourself.

As your words change, your internal story transforms, and then your performance follows. Also, you should behave in the way you want to become by ‘acting as if’ you are that person already. Practice being optimistic and you will install the thinking of optimism; practice non-procrastination and you will install the mind-set of an extreme achiever, practice being unbeatable, and you will have unbeatability as your mental default setting. This psychological principle is profound but simple. It’s far more powerful to behave your way into a new way of thinking than to think your way into a new way of behaving.
