What does your mind say about you?

Sat, Dec 15, 2012

All Posts, Personal Development

The mind is one of the most powerful elements of a persons being.  It has the ability to destroy a person and to make some one crumble to their knees, to reek havoc and chaos and stop a person in their tracks.  However, at the same time the mind can be trained and manipulated it can be taught to love its owner and create the most amazing results and successes.

What is your mind doing to you right now?  Is is letting you fulfil your dreams? Does it shout words of encouragement and positivity when things are tough?

In simple terms the mind is made up of the conscious and subconscious mind.  The subconscious stores memories from our distant past, these memories emerge at certain times in our life, making us react in a certain preconditioned manner, which is sometimes not appropriate.

Have you ever seen red or flown of the handle when someone has said something to you, only for them to think you are acting irrational, yet you have no real understanding why you are reacting that way at all?  Perhaps it is something from your childhood or a suppressed feeling coming to the fore.

If you are consciously wanting to create money and wealth for yourself but your subconscious mind is saying you don’t deserve to, then more often than 99.9% of the time your subconscious will win out.  You might not think you believe you are good enough, you might have been told at school you are average, that your family has never had a lot of money, that you always just get by on what you have, perhaps your parents were always in debt and you just don’t know any other way.

But let me tell you this, it doesn’t matter what you were told or brought up to believe as a child, if you start to believe in yourself NOW, others will believe in you too and soon you will start to see the results.

Below is a video link of my friend Cassie Strom…her video was sooooo good that I didn’t see the point in reinventing it.  Here she does a great video on self-limiting thoughts.  So here is a great big THANK YOU to the lovely Cassie for letting me use this clip.  I know many of you will already know Cassie’s stuff but if you haven’t yet subscribed to her, make sure you do, she is a real genuine gem….(and chewy has some talent too WOOF WOOF)

Now try this little task.

1. Grab a piece of paper and write down some of the limiting beliefs that people said to you as a child or whilst at high school.

These were some of mine:
Too Tall (huh…I am only 5ft3)

2. Now write down some of your achievements or things that make you positive, like films, music or a memory.

These are some of mine:
Good school grades,
Did well at University
I am a great mum
Bought my own home

3.) Now look at the list of negative comments for one last time, crumble the piece of paper up and throw it in the bin or rip it up, do what ever makes you feel good and then get rid if it forever. (Don’t burn it because you really shouldn’t play with fire!)

These negative thoughts are what I like to call CRUMPLE BUTTONS, they are words that people say to us and which make us feel small and insecure but these limiting thoughts get planted in our subconscious for the rest of time unless we release them.

Start practising positive thoughts. Whenever a voice comes in your head that is self-limiting say straight back to it… ‘NO I CAN DO THIS’ and grab you list of positive thoughts to remind you how amazing you really are.

Here is my happy song…I don’t know why I just love ELO and I love the 1970s.

Now you know what I rock to when I am alone in my bedroom.

Let me know how you practice positive thinking and what your happy thoughts are.

Peace, love and happiness

    Thanks Evin,

    I like Jeffery Combs too, I am reading a lot of law of attraction stuff at the minute and positive thoughts and affirmations are something I gradually getting really great at.

    Glad you liked the interaction.

  2. Lori Robertson Says:

    Beth, I loved this post it just reminds me of what I need to feed my mind constantly on a daily basis. Staying positive is the key to being successful and if you are positive then the people around you will pick up on that vibe and want to stay around you. This helps on so many levels.

    Happy song, Beth! I’m rocking out as I write this comment! This reminder of our subconscious limitations is so important. I constantly run across this problem with clients who are struggling to reach their next level of success. We store those hurts so easily and are so seldom taught how to get rid of them. Thank you for putting this out there so more people can move in the right direction!

    Nice Song!! lol. Again another post that just makes you think. you have a great point, if you allow our subconscious limitations to rule us, then there will never be any success. That is why personal development and surrounding yourself with positive individuals will help to keep our subconscious under control.

  5. Shekinah Says:

    Beth I thank you for another positive post that will help me with outcomes. Our minds are so powerful and I think that we forget that sometimes. Garbage in and garbage out! If we don’t learn to forgive those that may have hurt us in the past and let go it can definitely damage us towards our future goals. Thank you for the reminder that we think therefore we are and if we think on positive things it will transform every area of our life!

    Crumple Buttons… okay I’m gonna borrow that one! That’s so true! I can be cruising along, doing pretty darn good, and someone can say something that creates a mental cascade in my mind that just takes my footing right out from under me. Crumple is such the right word, its like we collapse inward and that strength we were walking in is somehow just “poof” gone. I’ve actually been dealing with a lot of these lately, and in particular some people that just seem really darn good at pushing exactly those buttons. Thanks for the inspiration!

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts and you offer a lot of value in this post. So many times we are our worst enemies and critics. People usually have better thing to say about us more than we say about ourselves. Maybe it’s because we are always with ourselves and we know all the flaws.

    Having a mindset that you love who you are will take you to the next level. We all have hangups but if we analyze who we are with all our faults and are willing to change, that will determine the person we will become.

    I like your post but sometimes we need to get down on ourselves! If something isn’t working, then we need to take a hard look at it to find the reason and 9 times out of 10 it’s us. So even though we are what we think, we need to analyze it in order to change and have a positive mindset for the future.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Hi Beth,

    How true it is that we can be our own worst enemies. I find I have to fight my self-limiting beliefs on a daily basis. But I shall prevail!!

    Being the down to earth gal that I am, I really like the practical way you lead us to take action and not just read the truth.

    Keep up the good work! Thanks.

    Beth, Great post and excellent reminder. I do this work almost every day, and I NEED to do it every day. I’m convinced that we human beings are very odd and wonderful creatures and our minds sometimes have a life of their own - I know mine does….the good news though, is if you do this consistently, it really does change the quality of your life. That makes it worth it. Amy

  11. Bruce Backman Says:


    Boy this is so true. I know from personal experience growing up with all sorts of negative things flying at me. It has taken most of my life to sort all of that out. It certainly gets easier the more I know and I appreciate your input into the conversation.

    I have found for me that the thing that changed my life was simply feeling that I deserved to be completely loved by God…that He wants to share His affection with me. I was able to transfer that from theory to reality a number of years ago and it was the most transforming time in my life…I have just begun to see how big the results of that shift in my life truly are.

    I also loved Cassie’s Video…thanks for sharing that gem with us as well.



  12. Eiji Morishita Says:

    Love it Beth! Thank you!

    The mind is a great servant but a horrible master.

    Great reminder on how important it is to take ownership of our thoughts.

    You can literally rewire your mind to shift from being your worst critic to your biggest cheerleader.

    One couple had a mental ceiling of $150K a year and when they rewired their mind they broke $400K a year. Rewiring works best right before you go to bed and right when you wake up.

    After roughly 90 days the new beliefs become permanently ingrained.

    It’s a core part of my 101 Day Genius Mentorship Academy.

    Thanks Beth for shining your light!

    Hi Beth,

    I am answering you and rocking out to the music you posted! :)

    Thank you for sharing this and the wonderful Cassie. She was a little scary there at one point, though!

    There are so many negative thoughts from my past, I don’t know where to start! Probably the most significant is that I am an impostor! What?

    Yes, even though I have been an attorney for 25 years, I sometimes think that someone will find out that I really don’t know what I’m doing! That thought exists in the face of my reputation which is for being absolutely meticulous!

    I’m going to get my piece of paper right now!

    And I love that you shared Cassie’s video ~ I just discovered her blog last week and her videos are fabulous, hilarious and always right on. Thanks for sharing this one!

    Really great tips on releasing limiting beliefs ~ crumple buttons, that’s a keeper. :) I am a big believer in both vision boards and affirmations ~ keeps my positive thoughts ever-present in the forefront of my mind.

    Thank you again for sharing so authentically and for being such an inspiration!

  15. Edward Says:

    Hey Beth,

    Great post. Love the topic of the mind and beliefs.
    It is so amazing how much we really have control of what we experience in our lives by changing our mind and beliefs in response to situations in our lives.

    Cassie is a great friend of mine too and I love her videos! Thanks for sharing it here. Glad to see you are getting to know each other too.

    So what do I do to train my mind. I am always up for a good brain wash every now and again. I just wish I could take my brain out and ring it out LOL! For me I carry around a queue cards of quotes that I just love along with some affirmations in my pocket. When I feel the need I take them out and read them, sometimes I do not even need to take them out. I just touch them in my pocket or even just think about them being there and that works for me too.

    Thanks again for sharing this with us.

    Make it a great day!
    God Bless,


  16. Darlene Davis Says:

    No one can push my “Crumple Buttons” quite like my two kids. They have a patent on them! The other day started out gorgeous. All it took was one call from my daughter and I folded inward.

    It’s amazing how many negative records we carry from childhood. In the last four months I’ve been monitoring my thoughts and there is a lot of housecleaning to do!

    Music is a HUGE part of overcoming the negative spiral. I turn on anything from Bach to Springsteen and crank it up until the windows rattle. That feeds my soul and drags me out of the pits.

    Thanks for sharing a beautiful part of you!

  17. Bill Cowan Says:

    Thanks Beth, “I can do all things through Him that gives me strength”. So I take that quote and have a mindset that I can do this or that and I find that most of the time I CAN do it. There have been many people in my life that wanted to water on my parade and tell me I couldn’t do it. Now those comments spur me on toward “doing it” all the more. What do they know :-)

    So thanks for reminding me of this today!

  18. Judy Zavislak Says:

    Great post Beth! What I love about the network marketing business so much is that there is so much emphasis on personal development. We are constantly told to read 10 pages of a good book and listen to 15 minutes of a good audio program each day. It’s all about reprogramming our mind to tell us GOOD things! Your past does not equal your future! We can all change what we think about. Reading great blogs like yours is now part of my daily ritual as well! Eventually, all of those good thoughts are going to crowd out the bad! Love the videos too!

    Hi Beth

    Good post and I couldn’t agree more - if people allow that niggling doubt to over take their goals they are lost. That is what is happening to a friend of mine at the moment but I am trying to help and encourage her but in the end it is really up to her and her alone. I have a saying that I repeat a lot of times - You have to do it for yourself but you don’t have to do it alone.

    Great post. We are what we think. So simple to say and “know” but sometimes so difficult to break through. I’ve crumpled many pieces of paper in my day, and I will continue to crumple every time those “nasty inner voices” try and keep the ceiling on my future.

  26. Harley Says:


    25,000 a month! Are you kidding me? Why so low? I learned from attending seminar with T. Harv Eker a neat little trick to help reprogram your Money Blueprint.

    Do this everybody: Write down how much you want to make on a monthly or yearly basis. Keep it a number like a whole number like 10,000; 25,000, etc. Now, add a zero to the end of your number. That is where you need to program your money blueprint.

    Great Video Cassie!


  27. kellie Frazier Says:

    Everyone does have a thermostat and Cassie is right on. Loved the ‘voices’ and a creative way to make them stick. Bumping up that inner thermostat is vital. I like to think my thermostat is getting higher every day and even when (not if but when) my temp drops, I know I can get back to it again. My happy song? “Don’t worry, be happy” it just picks me up no matter my ‘mood’….which by the way is like everything else…a choice. Nice job Beth!

  31. Mick Graham Says:

    Excellent article Beth.

    I have been following this limited belief stuff for years after reading a book by Jack Black in the 90′s.

    However, I have now found a method of meditating using a system called Holosync. It comes in CD format and plays sounds into your head with different specific frequencies into the left and right ear simultaneously. This apparently helps to create new neural pathways between the left and right cortex so that you can start thinking in a more whole brain way like the great geniuses Einstein etc.

    The cd course can last for years and I am now on stage2 which has my own affirmations embedded submliminaly into the background. Its extremely powerfull stuff and I have gone from being a bit of a hot head, to someone more calm and methodical in my thinking.


    Take a look… its fun as well as a life changer :)

    Keep up the work… cu in the Unified Tribe.

  32. Kimberly Says:

    It’s a good think that we are not our minds because they are pretty mean. We have to remind ourselves that these nasty things we hear are just our thoughts provoking us. If we don’t pay attention to them, we can make them disappear. Well, most of the time.

    Our thoughts can be mean, but the more we listen to them and learn to take control of them the easier it gets to make them disappear more often then not.

    Hi Beth
    Great post and absolutely on the mark. Re-programing our subconscious mind is essential if we have self limiting beliefs. Because as you say, the blockage will sabotage us every time. I like to combine EFT with affirmations to clear out blockages.

    I’ve heard these thoughts before (great video, btw!), but in my opinion you can never hear them too many times! I am preparing for my first online product launch, and I have to keep reminding myself that I am worthy to find success and try to drive those thoughts of doubt or low worth from my mind. Thanks for this great reminder - perfect timing for me!

    Glad you like the post and the Video. All the best with your product launch. You are most certainly worthy to find success. The more you tell yourself that the less those self doubts will creep in.

  35. George Shears Says:

    You’ve made a very important point here, Beth. During my 35 year career as a psychotherapist, I saw endless examples of tragic lift scripts whereby we tend to recapitulate the negative patterns from early childhood.

    I came to refer to this as “the internal tyranny” and strongly believe that it operates to some degree in all of us, whether or not we are aware of it.

    I’ve personally found that one of the most effective ways to liberate ourselves from this “walking in blindness,” as the ancient Greeks called it, is through the practice of mindfulness meditation.

    Thanks much for your helpful guidance.

    All the best,
