It’s hard to believe it’s almost been 5 years since I first eliminated my first belief with the Lefkoe Method. A lot can happen in almost 5 years. And as many of us know too well, a lot can stay the same too.
I wanted to touch base here and relay how things have changed, and why I credit The Lefkoe Method, Natural Confidence program as well as Shelly Lefkoe’s personal coaching with much of my success. This blog as been my way to chronicle this journey from the start, so, I thought we should keep that going. 🙂
It’s funny because much of the time when we have a certain desire or outcome in mind and we don’t see any feasible way for it to take place we stop there and downgrade our desires. We look for incremental changes that aren’t far off from what we have now instead. But it doesn’t have to be that way. We can make change and it can happen faster than we first imagine. We just have to approach the problem in the right way. We have to dig deep and grab the issues by their root.
The Lefkoe Method helps do this. What is it exactly? Well, I’ve talked about it at length, here, here and here, but in a nutshell, it’s a proven method to help shift our limiting beliefs by starting where they start. We often try to fix these things on the surface. It’s difficult to do. Some would say, impossible. Why? Because when we address only the surface problem, the root cause is still there, ready to pop up once again, dressed in a different outfit, maybe it’ll look like a completely new problem altogether, either way, it’s coming from the same root. The thing about cultivating self-awareness through practices such as meditation and contemplation is that we begin to see the connections between our beliefs, inner dialogue, actions and reactions. And when we create that space between stimulus and response, we are able to make a choice in that moment instead of simply reacting.
I was living on autopilot, as hard as I tried, I couldn’t stop. All the while tackling surface problems with great fury. I was stuck in a job that was getting me nowhere and brought frustration instead of fulfillment. I was engaging in self-destructive habits, namely smoking cigarettes like a chimney, on a daily basis, and I had an inner dialogue that questioned and doubted me and my abilities at every turn. I was stucker than stuck.
All of that changed after I began using the Lefkoe Method. Am I a paragon of confidence that doesn’t smoke and lives a life of greater meaning and fulfillment now? Yes! I was half kidding about that paragon of confidence thing, but mostly, yes. Of course, I still have doubts but I act despite them. I still have fears, but my courage outweighs them. I am operating at another level and actually living in my potential. Of course, I want greater growth and have areas I want development in, but I am progressing and more is possible now. I am pushed forward, out of my comfort zone and into my creativity.
In other areas of my life, in the past 4 and a half years since starting the Lefkoe Method, I’ve met the love of my life, and we got married on a beautiful island off of the coast of California. We are in escrow for our first home and we are delighted! Most importantly, we have fun, all the time. I can easily say, I’m super fortunate.
My advice to you. Try to program. Heck, even simply try the three free beliefs elimination process (or just try one, it takes 15-20 minutes). Maybe that’ll be enough to get you going and moving in the right direction. The big shifts, start with small, internal, shifts.
Then, if that has worked for you, dive into the Natural Confidence program if you see fit. It has paid me back exponentially. I can’t even quantify it. After that, to get to the next level, if you wish, talk to Shelly. She is amazing. She will walk you through the method and dig even deeper.
And come back here for some reading. I love helping people. I believe we can all operate on the level of our true potential. And we can live in this space, where we are happy, healthy, and fulfilled. We can give more and get more. But we have got to start at home, in our minds, in our psyches, in our spirits.
As always, feel free to reach out! 🙂
