On the weekend I held a workshop for women all about loving yourself and goal setting. It was amazing and the group of 15 women had some really great discussions and breakthroughs.

I was reminded of a coaching concept I learned long ago, which is that our brains are amazing filters. Pre-programmed by our values & beliefs, our brains will delete, distort and generalise all of the stimuli we are surrounded with. What we are left with is our perception of reality.

However, depending on our beliefs, we could be left with some not so great stuff.

For example, if you have a limiting belief around never having enough money. Your brain will filter all the information around you to only show you evidence of how poor you are. If you have a limiting belief that you aren’t good enough, your brain will filter out all the evidence that shows you are capable and you will only be left with more reasons why you aren’t good enough.

As I said to the workshop participants, knowing this will help set you free.

In order to change your reality, you have to change your filter.

Stop allowing the junk to get through and start looking for all the evidence to support positive beliefs.

This requires a daily commitment to change. A daily commitment to a better way of thinking. Consistency, each and every day, to choose what supports you versus what holds you back.

Grab a pen and a piece of paper and write down the latest junky thoughts you have had. Anything from “my life sucks” to “the coffee I made this morning was awful”. Anything negative that is altering your reality needs to be filtered. When you start becoming aware of the nasty, negative thoughts you can start removing them from your mind.

Awareness is the first step.

Consistency is the second.

It’s up to you whether your reality will be positive or negative. It won’t always be an easy decision but there is always a better way to think.
