Hi, it's Brooke Castillo from the Life Coach School and in this video, I'm going to talk to you about your religion and your beliefs. I'm not going to talk about your religion in the way you might think. I'm not going to talk about organized religion or your relationship with God or anything like that, but what I am going to talk to you about are your belief systems and your collection of your belief systems are what make up your religion. Similarly to organized religion, those are based on belief systems but your life's religion what you believe and what you live your life from is basically your own personal religion.
Now most of your clients and maybe even some of you will not even know what you are creating your life on. You won't even know what are the main thoughts, what are the main things that you believe that are given you the results in your life and we really start by uncovering the thoughts because remember a belief is just a thought you keep on thinking, it's a thought you've probably thought your whole life. Most of us are running on belief systems that we have had since we were very little. We picked up on our religion when we were small children and we didn't have the capacity to really deliberately create it.
We are kind of on default most of us. When you start doing this work with your client you'll start uncovering thoughts and you'll see lots of repetition of certain thoughts. One of them maybe I'm not good enough, I'm not capable of that, I don't want to make too much money, money is evil, money means that I am selfish, I don't want to be too successful or leave everyone else in the dust. Those kind of thoughts when they keep repeating you can probably be sure that you are on to someone's belief systems and once you have 3, 4, 5 beliefs then you can show them, hey this is basically your religion. This is what you are creating your life from and when we start doing this with clients they are shocked because what they realize is that their belief systems are terrible. What they believe about themselves in their life some of them are terrible.
Now the other thing we really like to do is show them that their beliefs that aren't terrible, the things that are working. When they look in their life and they see all the results that they have that they want to have, we want to explore what are the thoughts that you believe that created those results because those thoughts we want to be aware as well and we also want to build on them. If I have a thought, I'm always going to be happy. I'm going to create results that will support that. If I have thoughts, I'm always going to be in a very warm happy family. I'm going to create results and maybe not even realize that I am doing it based on that religion.
Now if I have other thoughts on the other side that are I have a hard time making money, then I am going to feel like I have a hard time making money, I might be frustrated, I might be hopeless, I'm not going to take action that's going to support me making money because I'm being driven off that belief that it's hard. Those will be the results that I'll have in my life. Noticing what is your religion, what are the thoughts that you have that really serve you and that create the results you want in your life and what are the thoughts that you think all the time that don't serve you and then from there once you become aware of what you are dealing with, then you can deliberately create the religion that you want to have.
What do you want to believe about the world? What do you want to believe about yourself? Those are optional. You get to decide whatever you want to believe about anything. Nobody can tell you even if you were taught as a small child one thing. If you want to change your belief system, that is absolutely your right and by creating a new religion for yourself, you will absolutely create a new life for yourself.
