In my Blog-post “Decisions and Freedom (feel free to read it HERE) I mentioned our free will, our potential free will during a decision process. The post from July 16th is about the option of being affected by the environment when making decisions, without even knowing. The Q. was: how limited is our free will – really?
Today I put another limitation on the table: this post is about our BELIEF system and its blocking mechanism. Let´s start with two statements:
- Our beliefs are our strongest chain
- Simultaneously, our beliefs are the gate to implementation
When the belief-chain is in action we tend to think that we are not ready yet…..
… for change
… for the new organisation
… for the new product OR
… for the new job
Thinking with a certain belief that chains us causes consequences of DELAY, we run into TROUBLE and we face sudden OBSTACLES. It´s like activating a negative helix. We block ourselves.
Have you been there? OR: are you still there?
With our beliefs we express our expectations towards our achievement. If we belief we can get “there” we won´t turn away from the path and direction. We will focus! We will work on making it happen! We will walk towards our belief and show that it´s reality. One day.
We take action towards change. We start planning the new organisation. We discuss a new product and the planning phase, and we will probably think about taking over a new job position. And then we´ll start planning it! This helix shows a positive loop. We open the gate to the new and possible, just with our belief. In implementation.
Decisions are decisions. But with the direction of our thought process of beliefs we give salt and pepper to it.
This is your take-away, once more: with our beliefs we express our expectations towards our achievement. Fact. Now, <ou may think it over….
BE A DECISION MAKER. BE OUTSTANDING.
