A belief is simply an idea that you know longer think about. An idea you no longer scrutinize, an idea you accept as true--as fact--as the truest representation of reality. The amazing thing about our beliefs is they create the world we live in now.
Most people believe their beliefs are based on facts--which is just another belief.
When I was a kid Pluto was a planet--that was a fact.
Ask any learned person in the world and they would report with absolute certainty that Pluto was the ninth and outermost planet in our solar system.
Well, as it turns out that the term "planet" wasn't even defined by the International Astronomical Union (IAU) until August 24, 2006!
Clearly, sometimes even our collective "beliefs" aren't based on "facts"...and facts are just our current beliefs anyway.
Now, if I'm the first to bring you the news then brace yourself--Pluto is no longer a planet! We now only have eight planets in our solar system (seriously, look it up).
Through the power of belief we've made a planet disappear. Did it disappear? No. We now just believe it to be something else--which is the same thing isn't it? A planet disappeared. There were nine planets before and now there are eight--that is a fact. I suppose you could say there used to be a planet exactly where Pluto is, either way--it's gone--a whole planet is gone!
Ask any learned person in the world and they will report with absolute certainty that Neptune is the eighth and outermost planet in our solar system...or is that just what they believe?
What you believe to be true now about yourself and the world can be heard every time that voice inside says "I can." or "I can't.".
This is the voice of the beliefs you currently hold.
Listen to what the voice says carefully.
Does your voice say? "I am successful everytime I try something new.", "I am grateful.", "I am confident.", "I am at peace.", "I can accomplish anything I put my mind to.", "My life is in harmony.", "I am wealthy.", "I am loved by so many." "I am financially successful.", "I have the best friends.", "I live in great abundance."
A positive voice in your head creates emotions which inspire your action towards success.
Does your voice inspire you to accomplish the things you desire?
How to Coach Yourself to Accomplish Any Goal
What you currently believe created the world around you NOW. To change your circumstances or situation you MUST first change a BELIEF about yourself or the world you live in.
To make a change you have to first believe you can--you know that. Tell yourself the right messages to accomplish any goal in life!
"I no longer smoke", "My life is full of opportunities.", "I have complete financial freedom", "I am happy with my life", "I am healthy ", "I am in the best shape ever.", "I am peaceful", "I am loved and supported by my family and friends".
What you hear said most often--becomes your belief.
You can change all or any part of the world you see now by changing your beliefs--after all you are powerful enough to make a planet disappear in an instant.
What is Self Talk?
"Self Talk is our internal dialogue, our thoughts. It is those thoughts, positive or negative, that end up shaping our lives and results in the decisions we make, personally and professionally. Positive Self Talk facilitates adjustments and change, making for an easier transition. Our Self Talk will be the barometer for the relationships we're in and the careers we choose."

How Does Self Talk Work?
Your belief creates your emotions and motivates your actions toward your success. Anything you will ever accomplish begins with a belief you create and then hold in your mind.
Highly successful people have an incredible ability to manifest their ideas. Their ability to self-motivate creates unstoppable self-belief. They can because they believe they can.
TELL YOURSELF YOU CAN--AND YOUR POWERFUL MIND WILL MAKE IT SO!
How Do I Use Self Talk Work to Accomplish ANY Goal?
1. Expose your mind to transitional statements
To prepare your powerful mind to adopt a new perspective repeatedly expose yourself to transitional statements, such as: "I never ..." and "I no longer ..."
"I never eat junk food." "I no longer smoke."
2. Expose your mind to inspirational statements
Align youself with the feelings of already having what you desire. Envision living the life you want! Paint a completely new picture of yourself and any aspect of your life: career, relationships, financial success and then create it!
"Self-talk is a way to override our past negative programming by erasing or replacing it with conscious, positive new directions."
Shad Helmstetter, Ph. D.
Repeatedly expose yourself to inspirational statements from your new life, such as: "I am ..." "I am financially independent.", "I am living my dreams.","I am in the best shape ever!"
And watch your dreams become your reality!
