Time to update your belief system

You have in your bag or pocket... the internet. It gets beamed into a device the size of your hand - your smartphone.

Your smartphone has an operating system (OS). It is continuously, obsessively checking for errors, which are then fixed by handsomely paid engineers.

Your phone regularly prompts you to update your OS, but how often do we update our belief systems? Every day, we make statements and decisions based on beliefs that are either beneficial or detrimental to us. Some of these beliefs might be 5, 10, 20 years old -- simply put: outdated OS.

You have to be your own engineer, manually and regularly update your own OS. 

This can look like:

  1. Set aside time to regularly observe your current belief system.
  2. Test beliefs to see if they still ring true and are beneficial to your life.
  3. Find and flag beliefs that are detrimental and no longer serve you.
  4. Dig deep in the "coding" of detrimental beliefs and analyze.
  5. Re-write them as new, beneficial beliefs that move your life forward.
