Change Your Perceptions…Your Actions Change…Your Life Experience Changes

Change Your Perceptions…Your Actions Change…Your Life Experience Changes!

Do you want to change your life…or, do you want to change a part of your life?

What’s your first response?  Is your response something like this?

‘Nah, I’m fine.’   or   ‘What’s the point?’ or ‘I’ve tried EVERYTHING!’

Well, most often, when we begin to become frustrated or disillusioned or ‘sick and tired of being sick and tired’; then we begin to decide to change our life and the standard advice to changing your life is to ‘Do something different’…in other words, take some action…and make it good!

What are your results in making changes in the past? Sometimes good, with hard work…most times no results, or your life gets even worse (as if that’s possible!)…am I close to the truth for you?

Here’s what makes that strategy of “just taking action” so difficult. You want a different type of life, so you are taking a different action (ok, so far, so good).  Ah, but you end up taking the type of action that is NOT in line with the results you desire…in fact, you probably “think” you are taking the appropriate action, but I would guess that you are not TRULY taking the appropriate action.

Here’s what I mean by that.  Let’s look at an example that I use in the workshops I conduct:

Let’s say you are an “everyday employee” and want to be a business owner…a “successful entrepreneur.”  If that’s what you want, no problem, take the appropriate action, right?  But, if you are not BEING a “successful entrepreneur,” then the actions you will be taking are NOT those of a “successful entrepreneur,” but the actions of an “every day employee.”

Do you see the difficulty? How difficult is it for someone with the thoughts, energy and perceptions of an “everyday employee” to discover the actions necessary to become a “successful entrepreneur?”  It’s very difficult! The perceptions of an “everyday employee” and a “successful entrepreneur” are almost like night and day…not even close!

So, the struggle continues and a very small percentage persist until they “figure it out,” but the majority of people quit; they feel they are just too weak to be the “successful entrepreneur” and go back to a life they never dreamed of…they settle…they fall back…AND, then they develop more reasons to believe and KNOW that “they were not meant to live that life” … or … “entrepreneurs are lucky”…or…”that’s ok, entrepreneurs are not spiritual anyway and my spirituality is more important”…or…well…you fill in the blank with a perception that makes sense for the failure.

Do you get an idea where writings on the wall come from?

So, do you see how changing your perceptions is so important?

“When you change the way you look at things,

the things you look at change.”

That’s right…first you must BECOME the “successful entrepreneur” in your mind…you must begin to develop the perceptions of the “successful entrepreneur”, the emotions of the “successful entrepreneur”…when that begins to develop, you will begin to discover the actions that will allow you to create the life of a  “successful entrepreneur.”  It does not have to happen all at once.  It can happen gradually.  Of course, you have the power and choice to do it as fast as you desire.

So, you might be asking…”Ok, ok, Jeff, how do I change my perceptions?

Let me give you a quick example…I did not ask for permission to use this example, so there is no name and it is very brief.  Here is a gentleman that was having difficulty playing his favorite sport, he had developed confidence issues and he was not enjoying it, so what did he do? He continued playing but he settled for a less than enjoyable experience. My opinion is that he would have eventually quit the sport altogether and give up something that used to give him a joyful experience.

Perhaps you’re right; it’s only a sport. So what! Well, if someone loves something and that experience is joyful or fulfilling, even on a small scale, isn’t that just as important? Don’t the little things in life add up to a fulfilling life?

So, what did you suppose we did for him?

That’s right…change his perception.

In a matter of 15 minutes, he was able to change his perception to this:

“I played on both Wednesday and Thursday and I definitely noticed an improvement…I noticed that I was playing more confidently…”

…and here’s what happened

“I played my best overall game of the season…I scored 8 – 10 points, and I got a large number of rebounds and assists…free throw percentage was my highest of the season…Our captain said that my play was a big reason why we were ahead in the first half.  So my view is that the tapping has taken my game up a level”

You must erase the writings on the walls of your mind that give you the perceptions that tell you to take actions that are contrary to your intentions.  You must also replace them with writings of your choice.  In other words, apply the writings on the walls of your mind that you desire, that you choose!

What did we do here? Well, first we took his anxiety down in regards to the issue of playing.  The mere tapping to take down his anxiety had already increased his confidence, so we had an indication that the “slate was clean” and he would be open for a reframe…so we took it one step further and used a Choices Tapping Routine (thank you Dr. Carrington) and he used this routine for a few days prior to his next game.  Well, as they say, the rest is history and now he has new writings on the wall that were reinforced with his physical emotional experience!

You may already be familiar with EFT as an excellent tool to erase the writings on the wall, but did you know that EFT is a very effective tool (and a quick one at that) in changing perceptions?

EFT is the tool that can help you to not only erase the writings that no longer serve you, but to also allow you to quickly and easily create new writings in your mind so that you can become the person you desire that takes the necessary actions to create the life of your dreams.

Take the time…be persistent…become excellent at using EFT to change your perceptions and watch in amazement as your life transforms right before your eyes.

Take care and keep tappin’!
